Elvis Express Radio News
Elvis Express Radio brings news of Elvis releases and provides free online entertainment & news to fans around the world.  We DO NOT sell any Elvis products
When this title was announced to be released this August as a Digital Download Collection only, many fans expressed their total disappointment at the news. But now we have been
given the exciting news that a 5CD Hardcopy WILL now see the light of day. The only issue is that it will only be available via the FTD collectors label, which will no doubt mean the
price tag may well be a little higher than if it were to be issued on the mainstream label?

WHY FTD?

Not only does 2019 mark the 50th Anniversary of these legendary studio recordings from January/February 1969 and also the 50th Anniversary of the first release of one of Elvis'
most famous and most loved recordings, 'Suspicious Minds' (47-9764) on August 26th 1969. Or the historic return to live performances at the International Hotel in July/August
1969, but it's also the 20 years since the release of 'Burbank 68' and the birth of the 'Follow That Dream' [FTD] collectors label.

So, to celebrate FTD’s 20th birthday, the label is pleased to announce the up coming release of “ELVIS: AMERICAN SOUND 1969” which will be a 5 CD collection of 90 tracks
including 17 never before released outtakes released as the third title as part of FTD’s new ‘Sessions’ series (Previous titles in the series so far are 'Viva Las Vegas' and 'Fun In
Acapulco"), and will include a detailed 28-page booklet featuring with rare photos and memorabilia.
