MRS will release a 4CD/152-page book entitled ELVIS - MADE IN GERMANY – THE COMPLETE PRIVATE RECORDINGS on 8 March 2019.

The CD set contains more than 3 hours of all the private recordings Elvis made while off duty in Germany when he was serving as a soldier in the US army during the 1958 -1960
period and, includes rare tracks from a recently discovered tape comprising over an hour of unheard personal recordings.

SUPERIOR SOUND QUALITY
Although the original tapes were damaged with noise, hiss and distortion, for the first time ever, all of Elvis’ recordings made in Germany, have now all been painstakingly cleaned,
repaired, and restored, using the most sophisticated technology.  

This means that, finally, these truly historical recordings now provide for a complete and enjoyable listening experience. Over the coming weeks, prior to the release date, MRS will
be releasing previews of our high restoration techniques through the various collectors forums and channels, right here on ELVIS EXPRESS RADIO, providing audio comparisons
with all the previous poorly mastered versions - including those included on the recent FTD release (For LP Fans Only), which contains some of the tracks also contained in this
set.

THE BOOK
The 152-page hardback book contains rare unpublished photographs and documents, complemented by a comprehensive text provided by Gordon Minto, which discusses each
of Elvis’ RCA studio (non-film) recording sessions held during 1957-58, before focusing on the private recordings he made in Germany.

THE BONUS CD
This 4th disc includes the essential RCA studio masters from the 1957-’58 period (also lovingly restored and remastered by MRS) and includes - together for the FIRST TIME -
studio banter AS WELL, AS the count-ins on
‘All Shook Up’, ‘Don’t Leave Me Now’ and ‘White Christmas’.

The Made in Germany CD set is available for preorder from your local Elvis dealer NOW!  

ALSO...
Watch out for the announcement in the coming weeks for the Limited Edition 180-gram 2LP/24-page gatefold version, containing the best of the home recordings Elvis made
in Germany!
