Following that Dream
March 19, 2007 7:19pm CST
Follow That Dream is RCA\BMGs Elvis Official collectors label. 2 x cds are released 4 times a year and spans Elvis's career. Releases are studio, concert and reherseal and highlights previously unrelased material. For the last 4/5 years I have been buying them from the Elvis Australia site http:\\www.elvis.com.au. Releases can be very expensive but if you love the King (and I do) they are great. Thee have been some great releases, my favs being The Jugle Room Sessions (early 76 sessions), Let Yourself Go (contains '68 comeback outtakes with a brilliant version of Memories), Southern Nights (a 1975 concert containing Jambalaya). Also released side by side are special releases that look like a 7" record. This is the classic album series which uses the original cover art of the old record. Releases in this series are (so far) mostly soundtracks such as Viva Las Vegas and Tickle Me. However there has been fanastic double cd reworkings of albums such as Elvis is Back, Elvis Today, Something For everybody. These contains the original masters of the songs, any singles from the sesions and other outtakes. Not all takes are on the double set but no one really wants 20 versions of a song (however there are 6 versions of Surrender on the Hand in Mine sessions.) Do any other fans have these? What do you think?

I'm one of the original Elvis fans from Oz, and back in the fifties even convinced my mother how great the man was. Now I have so many CDs and tapes I can play them for days. However there is one song that was never a hit, but I liked it, and had it on a tape which has been misplaced. If any Elvis fan out there has a copy of "My Baby Went Walkin'" I love to have it emailed to me. I haven't heard of these releases, but will check the site. Thanks.

Aaah you definitely take after Mum, I know she's Elvis's numero uno fan! I'm not an Elvis fan myself but recognize his talent and his big fan club across the world. There are so many Elvis impersonators too. I can see you are definitely a fan too!

Hi Ross, I promised you mom I would look you up and OMG I find you love Elvis too. No one has ever matched his voice. He is sooo great. I fell for him when I was 9 years old. That was the first time I seen him on TV. I do not remeber if it was a movie or a tv show but I remembered that voice. At one time I knew all the words to many of his songs but had no idea what the capitals of the States were. My teacher was not impressed. I do not have the collector albums you are speaking of, boo hoo!. Glad to meet you and I will be watching for your discussions.
