MADE IN GERMANY – THE COMPLETE PRIVATE RECORDINGS

SKU: MRS10057059

4CD /152 PAGE HARDBOOK

 

The CD set contains more than 3 hours of all the recordings Elvis made while off duty in Germany as a soldier in the US army during 1958 -1960 and includes tracks from a recently discovered tape of over an hour of unheard personal recordings. The original tapes were damaged and with noise, hiss and distortion, have now all been painstakingly cleaned, repaired and restored using the most sophisticated technology. These home recordings contained, include early renditions of songs he would go on to record formally years later. These truly historical recordings are now a making for a complete and enjoyable listening experience.

 

The book included contains rare unpublished photographs and documents, with a comprehensive text discussing each of Elvis’ RCA studio (non-film) recording sessions held during 1957-58, before focusing on the private recordings he made in Germany. A BONUS CD included features restored and remastered tracks of those essential RCA studio masters from the 1957- ‘58 period.
