welcome to my world

very nice compilation, but all tracks were previously released at the

time. the two exceptions are "for the good times" and "i can´t stop

loving you" which were both taken from the the unreleased afternoon

show at madison square garden recorded back in 1972.

elvis in demand

elvis in demand though, was quite a unique album for its time. it 

came about when rca uk invited british fans of the official fan club

to select 16 songs from elvis's extensive recorded repertoire to 

represent studio work, hollywood film soundtracks and live shows. 

most songs picked were an assortment of singles, b-sides, album 

tracks and some obscure movie songs. the idea was to have on one

album, as many songs that were not available at that time. when 

news of the project first appeared in elvis monthly, to celebrate the 

21st birthday of the fan club, it was suggested that this would be a

good opportunity to fill in a few gaps for songs that were not 

currently available in the uk.

moody blue

elvis ´finale album release during his livetime. producer felton jarvis

pieces together this album from cuts from the 1976 graceland 

sessions and songs recorded on the spring tour in 1977, having to add

the previously released "let me be there" to make up a minimum 

10track selection. "let me be there" was lifted from the memphis

show in 1974. see for the "recorded live on stage in memphis" album 

(cpl1-0606) in the "1967-1975" long play section.

the first 4 pics are from a still sealed copy . the shrink wrap still 

carries the 2 stickers announcing the blue vinyl and the hits "moody

blue" & "way down"

a canadian tribute

this album was released as a limited, numbered, gold vinyl edition as

well as the standard black vinyl version. although it is yet another

elvis compilation album, this one has the unique twist of elvis 

performing songs written by canadian songwriters, as well as hits

from 1957, the year elvis toured canada. while the music on this 

album can be found on previously released packages, the unique 

canadian slant makes it a must for any collector.

the rock hits

though the tracklist here is very good compared to other camden 

releases it´s unbelivable that elvis ´dead is dated "july 1977" in the 

liner notes. a real shame when you think that this is a officially 

release and not a cheap pirate product.

this is one of the last "camden - budget" releases.
