A Whole Lotta Power Going On

star_power

Deluxe Digipack factory pressed 2xCD set

Over 2.5 hours of incredible cuts!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Elvis June/September recordings in Nashville. Whereas other labels only re-re (re) release the same over and over, CMT continues their ‘Power’ series with this third instalment. After last year’s “Ghetto Power” and the first release “Stax Power”, this release had to be done and might be the best one yet!

Again, the editing on this album makes all songs ‘blend in’ so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session, with lots of rare snippets and surprises

All tracks from the Nashville 1970 sessions have been included on this set, with clever spliced takes for a whole new listening experience

Lots of works went into this release, and a lot of the tracks sound so different that you almost think that they are all brand new!

Because the producers wanted something really new, and wanted to start rocking from scratch, they decided not to give you a chronicle order tracklist, like the previous volumes

Just listen to the incredible new spliced version of “Patch It Up” (10!! splices), extended versions of “There Goes My Everything”, “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, and clever edits of Undubbed tracks with final masters like “Little Cabin on the Hill” and “Heart of Rome”

1970 has to be one of the best years for Elvis… you can hear it… you can SEE it, although we do agree with the “Never judge a book (CD or DVD) by it’s cover” expression, seeing this cover makes you want it even more, and it sure has ‘A Whole Lotta Power Going On!’
