Fame And Fortune FTD CD

Sold out.

StereoFTD (Follow That Dream), Sony Music's Official Elvis Presley Collectors Label. On March 20th 1960 when Elvis walked back into RCA's Studio B it had been an extremely long time since he had recorded anything professionally. Just 2 days earlier with the same Nashville 'A Team' backing band, The Everly Brothers had recorded their #1 Pop classic 'Cathy's Clown' and now Elvis had to prove that, after 2 years in the army, he too was still a creative force.

Starting with 11 dynamic tracks from his crucial 'Elvis Is Back' sessions this CD shows that Elvis, of course, had lost none of his edge recording an amazing variety of musical styles. Here we have great Rock n' Roll, sublime ballads, Pop, blues and even a little bit of Gospel. These first tracks are the real highlight of this CD (and it's damn hard not to put them on 'repeat') but we also get 8 tracks from 'His Hand in Mine' as well as 8 from his final session before 'Blue Hawaii'.

Compared with the other Studio outtakes CDs, 'Essential Vol 6' (which focussed on the first 4 years of Elvis' Nashville sessions) and 'Long Lonely Highway' (which took us on a journey all the way to through to 1968), ‘Fame & Fortune’ really works by just focussing on the 2 years 1960 & 1961.
