Writing For The King
The 3rd book project by FTD quite surprisingly features live tracks from 1969 to 1972. All of it is previously unreleased. The sound quality (mix) goes from good to fair to weird (extremely poor mix on 'Words').

CD-2 sports 26 demos sung by different performers, some by the author of the song.

The book then? Well, some 400 pages of interviews (more than 140!) and behind the scenes stories. The price is stiff!

His Hand In Mine
Included are all takes of 'Surrender' and also 'Crying In The Chapel', though not released on the album itself. This release covers almost the whole session from October 1960! (Take 9 of 'He Knows Just What I Need' is missing)

The sound quality is pristine!

Elvis Christmas (Wal-Mart)
Just as certain as the Christmas itself, a new Elvis Christmas compilation from BMG appears!

The 23 tracks featured should be familiar by everyone, however the Wal*Mart release from U.S.A. also contains an extra track, namely take 12 of 'Somebody Bigger Than You And I'. This version has previously been out on FTD's Easter Special.

Thanks to Ron for information and scans!
Million Dollar Quartet (Re-issue)
Million Dollar Quartet has been re-issued by BMG.

This time the CD features the complete "session" and the tracklist is in correct order. Previous releases have been neither complete nor in correct running order.

Thanks to Ron for scans of the Canadian pressing!
