News del 27 settembre 2020

Il libro con the CD “BRUCE JACKSON-ON THE ROAD WITH ELVIS”
è stato posticipato a novembre a causa di problemi di distribuzione.

 

Le emissioni di ottobre della FTD !

THE SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY SESSIONS (che includerà anche la session di “Wild in the country”), satà il prossimo cofanetto composto da 4 CD e da un corposo booklet.
Non aspettiamoci inediti sbalorditivi perché nel corso degli anni il materiale è stato ampiamente “trattato” sia dai pirati che dalla casa madre ufficiale ma saranno comunque presenti diverse false partenze (lunghe e brevi) mai asdcoltate prima.
Avremo, quindi, altre due colonne sonore in forma davvero completa, con tutto il materiale esistente.
Da non perdere !

FOR THE GOOD TIMES

La neonata label underground “The sound city” emetterà un CD intitolato “For the good times” che includerà, a sentir loro, le prove registrate nel backstage di Buffalo, New York, il 5 aprile 1972, prima del relativo spettacolo.
Nulla di nuovo in quanto estrapolato da un recente cofanetto pirata che includeva materiale relativo a “On Tour” ma se leggiamo la tracklist, sorgono parecchi dubbi riguardo alla veridicità del materiale…
Un CD da evitare…

CANZONI:
See See Rider
Johnny B. Goode
Release Me (And Let Me Love Again)
Burning Love
Polk Salad Annie
It’s Over
You Gave Me A Mountain
I Can’t Stop Loving You
– Proud Mary
Never Been To Spain
An American Trilogy
You Better Run
The Impossible Dream

È MORTO AL KASHA, AUTORE DI “YOUR TIME HASN’T COME YET, BABY”

È morto a Los Angeles Al Kasha, compositore che noi fans di Elvis abbiamo letto tra i credits della canzone “Your Time Hasn’t Come Yet, Baby” essendone appunto l’autore.
Aveva 83 anni.
Era nato a New York il 22 gennaio 1937. Vinse due Oscar come compositore: il primo per la canzone The Morning After  (presente nel film “L’avventura del Poseidon”) e l’altro per il brano We May Never Love Like This Again, presente nella colonna sonora della pellicola “Linferno di cristallo”.
La sua morte è stata causata da complicazioni dovute al morbo di Parkinson, diagnosticatagli qualche tempo prima.

IN ARRIVO DUE LIBRI DI TUNZI

Joseph A. Tunzi sarà presto sul mercato editoriale con altri due libri.
Il primo sarà intitolato “Elvis Presley in the valley of the sun-September 9, 1970”.
Si tratta di un libro fotografico inerente allo spettacolo di Phoenix, Arizona, del 9 settembre 1970.

Il secondo libro è dedicato invece ai collezionisti più incalliti e di nicchia:
The Comprehensive USA Artwork Guide to Elvis Presley Tapes (audio cassette), che completa così il discorso con il precedente “The Definitive Artwork of Elvis Aaron Presley 1956-1977”.
