The Essential Undubbed Masters 1969-1976

This brand new deluxe 8 cd set is out now. Recording sessions can be time-consuming. The process of recording a song or album is often very interesting. It’s like playing live in the studio, with the difference that if one goofed, they had to do it all over. Small corrections could be made but especially erasing something from the tape was a problem. Later on with the introduction of multitrack recording equipment it became much easier to alter the recordings. Channels could be erased or added and levels could be adjusted for each seperate channel. Often a track that ends up on an lp or 45 contains overdubs that were made at a later stage and added to the master take. Also most of The Elvis masters contain such overdubs. This set contains the master takes as they were made in the studio, without those overdubs. It’s as close as it gets to the pure sound of Elvis. Sit back and enjoy!

hello there , never really got these songs (except for notable few) in the late 60's and early 70's , not my cup of tea . just never felt that they were elvis style songs . got used of the flilm songs i suppose . elvis tried so hard .

This is a good release to fill the gaps in some of FTD classic albums releases, where a lot of undubbed master takes are not included. As going after the boots that have those missing tracks would be very costly, I'm going to purchase this one. I'm only sad that great songs like "I'm Leaving" and my favorite "We Can Make The Morning" are not in the list. I'd love to hear the undubbed version of "We Can Make The Morning" in better quality than what was released in the old boot "Pure Diamonds Vol.1".
