I’m Evil


This year marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis legendary comeback special. Since the performances cannot be beaten, the best thing for us to do would be to present them in the same way as they were recorded… but since that has been done over and over (and over and over) CMT is proud to present this STAR production, which is the best release containing the 1968 recordings… in 50 years!

Much time and effort went into this release, some live tracks have been ‘spliced’ from different shows, some studio tracks have been re-created and sound breathtaking!
The live tracks are blended very cool, so you get the feeling you are listening to a complete show. Probably THE highlight is the ‘complete’ version of Trouble/Guitar Man, cool edits make this work very well and makes the track even more ‘Evil’.

Some tracks have been shortened to make it a different listening experience. That’s All Right, for example, is presented just like the original 1954 version, with no repeating versus and chorus. Let Yourself Go has been spliced with the instrumental version and sounds very different. The gospel segment has been re-created from scratch containing clever splices to make it sound just like the original version, only different. Blue Suede Shoes (stand up) has been re-edited and kicks some serious a**. Throw in some more spliced takes, a rare rehearsal version of Blue Moon Of Kentucky (spliced) and some cool live edits, turn up to volume and enjoy this excellent release.

Presented in a six panel digipack and limited to 500 copies, this one will be gone soon!
