Elvis Live In Los Angeles - Touchdown Productions


Touchdown proudly presents another release. We thought it was about time to re-release the concert from November 14, 1970. That’s something we wanted to do for a long time. The recording we got was carefully remastered and and sounds much better than on the former release „Forum of Inglewood“ from fourteen years ago.

Elvis was on fire on November 14, 1970! The concert includes many, many highlights, for eg. the only known live version of ‘Trying To Get To You’ in 1970! Listen to superb versions of ‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’’, ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.

We worked hard to improve the sound quality and hope that you'll enjoy the result as much as we do. As usual the CD is accompanied by a full-color 16 page booklet with lots of rare photos and information on the event itself.

01. That‘s Alright Mama
02. I Got A Woman/Amen
03. Love Me Tender
04. You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me

Elvis - I Walk The Line

Elvis - I Walk The Line


It’s August 1970, the recordings for the MGM movie “That’s the way it is” are finished and 
Elvis still has more then 3 weeks to go at the Las Vegas International Hotel before 
starting another short (but busy) 1 week tour.  

Elvis is very inspired in a good mood, funny and in a fantastic physical condition.

All of which resulted in the magnificent August & September performances. 
Unfortunately the only soundboard/multitrack material that has seen the light of day 
are the “That’s The Way It Is” performances. 

Lucky enough these audience recordings survived! 

The August 14 1970 show has always been considered a very remarkable show, especially as 
Elvis is singing some unusual songs, like the 2 Johnny Cash songs: I WALK THE LINE / FOLSOM PRISON BLUES. 
The August 14 show had some volume issues as appeared on the original tape, probably because of hiding the recorder. 
This has been corrected where possible. All performances have been re-edited and remastered and speed corrected where necessary. 

Also featured is the original August 10, STAGE REHEARSAL remastered from scratch using an original transfer of the reel. Without any edited or added intro or outros, just as recorded! A wonderful improvement to the original release from the 90's!

These shows are too good to be missed in any collection!

WE BRING YOU BACK TO 1970!

Elvis In Kissin' Cousins - Spliced Takes Special - CMT / STAR

Elvis In Kissin' Cousins - Spliced Takes Special - CMT / STAR


An incredible new album, featuring extended versions, alternate takes including new instrumental tracks and some pretty cool edits!

Don't think you already heard these! ALL tracks are brandnew edits and sound very rare, The title track for example starts of with an alternate opening and includes the extra verses.

"Gold in the Mountains" has been extended and includes rare alternate musical segments. For "Tender Feeling"  they used the alternate take 1 (vocal) and combined it with an alternate musical track, the result is stunning and sound quality is much better then the master version! "Echoes of Love" includes an alternate Saxophone solo makes you feel as if it is a brandnew take! The "drums" on "Catchin On Fast" are taken from an alternate musical track and put in just at the right spot to make it sound pretty cool and different!

Another highlight must be "Kissin Cousins #1" ... for this song Elvis recorded TWO different vocal styles... one being Josh , and one being Jody (Hillbilly) both tracks were combined and we got the first "duet" ever of Elvis and... .Elvis.... Here they have "reversed" the vocals, and a complete NEW release is born, where the master has Josh... this track has Jody singing, gives the same "feel" but sounds VERY different! "Smokey Mountain Boy" and "Barefoot Ballad" have alternate extended intro and outros....We could go on, but one thing is for sure, this is another CMT winner!

Did we say All tracks are spliced, so you get an all new album!

Tracklisting:

01. Kissin Cousins #2 - Spliced take 1,2
02. Smokey Mountain Boy - Alternate Master
03. Gold in the Mountains - Alternate Master
04. One Boy, Two Little Girls - Spliced take 2,5,2
05. Catchin' On Fast - Alternate Master
06. Tender Feeling - Spliced take 1 (vocal) / take 1 (track)
07. Anyone - Spliced take 2,3
08. Barefoot Ballad - Alternate Master
09. Once is Enough - Spliced take 1,7,1,7
10. Kissin Cousins - Reversed Master
11. Echoes of Love - Spliced take 7,8
12. Long Lonely Highway - Spliced take 1,2

Elvis - Easter Eggs - Spliced Takes - CMT / STAR

Elvis - Easter Eggs - Spliced Takes - CMT / STAR


Finally a "new" Spliced take album is out now, and it was worth the wait.
This one includes all tracks from the 1966 recording sessions, many gospel songs were recorded, but also some  excellent
other tracks.

CMT managed to produce a full new album with high standard spliced takes only the STAR team can deliver.
To name just one highlight it has to be the new approach the team did on "Tomorrow is A Long Time" it was re-created from scratch, gives a totally new feel to the song since the "chorus" was used only once and all "verses" were put after one and other. Also a longer intro and outro makes this an outstanding new track!

Other surprises like "Fools Fall in Love" with TWO  saxophone solos and an alternate piano intro for "Where No One Stands Alone" confirms:  This is a MUST have!
The series continues!

Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an excellent job again , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises. Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks. 

01. Run On - Spliced take 3,1,1,2
02. How Great  Thou Art - Spliced take 1,2,4
03. Stand By Me - Spliced take 9,10,2
