|Aron & Cool Company - If We Can Dream
"If We Can Dream"*on *Aronin* ja hänen pitkäaikaisen keikkabändinsä,
tamperelaisen *Cool Companyn *ensimmäinen joululevy ja ensimmäinen
yhteinen pitkäsoitto -- viiden (5) biisin "Lights"-single julkaistiin
vuonna 2003. Aron julkaisi ensimmäisen solo-albuminsa "ARON" vuonna
2010, jolta erityisesti "Sä Ihmeitä Teet" on noussut suosikiksi eri
"If We Can Dream" on levy kirjaimellisesti yleisön pyynnöstä; Aron &
Cool Companyn erittäin menestyksekkäät kirkkokonsertit ympäri Suomea
ovat saaneet osakseen hyvin positiivista palautetta ja konserttiyleisö
on useampaan otteeseen esittänyt toiveita joulu/gospel-levyn
"If We Can Dream" on ns. studiolive. Levy äänitettiin Kangasalan
Pirtillä perinteiseen "vanhan liiton" tyyliin eli soitto ja laulu yhtä
aikaa ja periaatteella "lähes kerrasta purkkiin". Tämä kuuluu levyllä
luonnollisina ja ilmavina soundeina. Myös session aito ja hyvä meininki
kaikkine säröineen välittyy levyltä. Levy onkin raikas poikkeus tänä
ylituotettujen ja kliinisten levyjen aikakaudella. Äänittäjänä ja
miksaajana toimi Masi Luoma ja masteroijana Jaakko Viitalähde.
"If We Can Dream"-albumin monipuolinen, kuudentoista (16)
englanninkielisen kappaleen kokonaisuus perustuu Aron & Cool Companyn
konserttiohjelmistoon. Se sisältää sekä tunnettuja että vähemmän
tunnettuja gospel- ja jouluklassikkoja 'Elviksen hengessä', mutta bändin
omina särmikkäinä sovituksina. Levyllä on mm. hieno versio Mudin "Lonely
This Christmas"-kappaleesta ja levylle päätyneen "If Everyday Was Like
Christmas"-biisin on tiettävästi ennen tätä levyttänyt vain itse Elvis
*Aron*, oikealta nimeltään Juha Leppänen on suomalainen artisti, jolla
on vaikuttava lauluääni sekä aito ja omanlainen esiintymistyylinsä.
Hänen ohjelmistonsa koostuu perinteisestä rock'n rollista,
iskelmä-rockista sekä viihdemusiikin klassikoista. ARON tunnetaan myös
tyylikkäänä Elvis-tulkkina ja hänen näyttävä Elvis-show on ollut
suosittu ohjelmanumero erilaisissa tilaisuuksissa ja konserteissa
Suomessa sekä ulkomailla. Juha "Aron" Leppänen sai syyskuussa 2013
Pirkanmaalla Vuoden Yrittäjä-palkinnon.

|Elvis Presley - Elvis At Stax 2LP
Riding high on the success of Aloha From Hawaii [MOVLP739], Elvis did something remarkable. He decided that his next recording project would be on his home turf – Memphis, TN. The most desirable studio in town was the red-hot STAX – the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Isaac Hayes.
Elvis assembled the very best musicians in town – members of Booker T. and The MGs, The Memphis Boys and his own TCB band to create the ultimate band and he searched for fresh new material that would reflect his new path. Such songs as "I Got A Feelin' In My Body" and "Loving Arms" demonstrate an artist looking to broaden his palette and his reach.
The Stax material has never been positioned as a whole body of work – but is an amazing chapter of Elvis' career. With the Elvis At Stax release, all of this material is collected for the first time. Along with some of the funky outtakes, it creates a fresh new package that, while it doesn't have the known hits, tells a great story.

|Elvis Presley - Elvis Country 2CD
The Elvis Presley series of Legacy Edition multi-disc packages continues its focus on important phases of the king's recording career at RCA Records. Forty years after its release in 1971, Elvis Country, an LP that found him getting back in touch with the Nashville country music mainstream, is the lynchpin for ELVIS COUNTRY: LEGACY EDITION, the newest entry in the series.
ELVIS COUNTRY: LEGACY EDITION is the first Elvis release of 2012, a year which marks the 35th anniversary of the artist's passing and a year-long celebration of his life and legacy. A full schedule of catalog reissues and compilations are planned by longtime Elvis archivists/co-producers Ernst Mikael Jørgensen and Roger Semon.
Included in the new package on CD one is the original 12-song Elvis Country (subtitled "I'm 10,000 Years Old"), which debuted January 23, 1971, on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album peaked at #12, spent 21 weeks on the chart, and was certified RIAA gold. Three bonus tracks are drawn from the original recording sessions of June and September 1970 (more info below). On CD two, from the June sessions, comes the original 11-song Love Letters From Elvis (chart debut June 26, 1971, peak position # 33, 15 weeks on the chart), also with three bonus tracks from the original sessions.
In his liner notes to ELVIS COUNTRY: LEGACY EDITION, writer Stuart Colman calls the original Elvis Country "a pivotal release, in that it served to maintain the momentum generated by the ''68 Comeback Special,' the breakthrough in Las Vegas and Elvis Presley's long overdue return to touring." Colman, a veteran British rock musician since the '60s, is also a prolific album notes writer and compilation producer, with a special interest in roots rock, rockabilly, and early R&B.
Upon Elvis Country's original release, future Presley historian and biographer Peter Guralnick wrote in Rolling Stone, "[he] has come out with a record which gives us some of the very finest and most affecting music since he first recorded for Sun almost 17 years ago." The idea of inserting excerpts of "I Was Born About Ten Thousand Years Ago Years" (a track that did not appear on the original album but does appear on this Legacy Edition as a bonus track) in between the album tracks gave the LP a conceptual feel that had never been encountered before. And the songs, from the high-energy rock of "I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water" and "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" (which gives Jerry Lee Lewis a run for the money), to the big ballads that were becoming an Elvis trade mark (Eddy Arnold's "I Really Don't Want To Know" and Willie Nelson's "Funny How TimeSlips Away" among them) were some of Elvis' greatest performances ever.
The songs chosen for Love Letters From Elvis from the June 1970 sessions included an inspired coupling of Muddy Waters' rollicking "Got My Mojo Working" with "Keep Your Hands Off Of It" ("a peculiar combination of hypertension and soul," as popularly characterized by Guralnick). It was offset by the ballads that were chosen as singles, "Rags To Riches" (the Tony Bennett hit of 1953), the inspirational "Only Believe," and "Life." The latter was one of three cuts from up-and-coming songwriter Shirl Milete covered at the June sessions, along with "When I'm Over You" and "It's Your Baby, You Rock It."
Elvis Country was a breath of fresh air for most of his millions of fans, and signaled a renaissance of his creative energies. Prior to Elvis Country, his last album of original studio material (non-movie soundtrack material) was in 1969, when he recorded in Memphis at American Studios with producer Chips Moman. The result of those January and February hometown sessions was the landmark LP From Elvis In Memphis, and a year-long string of 'comeback' hit singles that reestablished Elvis: "In the Ghetto," "Suspicious Minds," "Don't Cry Daddy" and "Kentucky Rain."
Three factors contributed to the totally reinvigorated image of Elvis Presley in the new decade of the 1970s: 1) the impact of the "'68 Comeback Special" (i.e. the NBC broad cast of December 1968 that featured Elvis dressed in black leather); 2) the string of Memphis-recorded hits that began in the spring of 1969 (chronicled on From Elvis In Memphis: Legacy Edition, issued in 2009); and 3) Elvis' return to public performing which began in Las Vegas that summer and continued into January-February 1970 (as chronicled on On Stage: Legacy Edition, issued in 2010)
Those three factors over lapped the release of Change Of Habit in November 1969, the final (31st) Hollywood movie in Elvis' lifetime. In fact, prior to the Elvis Country studio sessions of June and September 1970, and the International Hotel recordings in Las Vegas before that, the last time Elvis had set foot in any recording studio was in March 1969 to cut a handful of tracks at Decca Universal for Change Of Habit. After 1969, Elvis would no longer be saddled with movies he did not believe in, and movie soundtrack songs he believed in even less.
Into 1970, Elvis was performing two shows a night at the International Hotel during January-February, and then checked into the Houston Astrodome for a weekend (six shows) that netted a record-breaking gross with over 250,000 people in attendance. After a well-deserved break, he finally arrived in RCA's Studio B in Nashville the first week of June 1970.
The last time he had recorded there was in January 1968 when he cut some tracks for that year's movie, Stay Away, Joe. It marked his final studio sessions with his own long-time bandmates (guitarist Scotty Moore and drummer D.J. Fontana) and the original Nashville 'A-team' that had served him so well: guitarists Chip Young and Jerry Reed, pianist Floyd Cramer, bassist Bob Moore, drummer Buddy Harman, Pete Drake on steel guitar, Charlie McCoy on harmonica, and of course the Jordanaires.
By the time he returned two and a half years later, for the five nights of sessions (Thursday, June 4th through Monday, June 8th)that are discussed here, producer Felton Jarvis had assembled a whole new 'A-team' (with Young and McCoy the only hold overs). The new band had the feel of the Memphis hitmakers of 1969, mainly because their core members were part of the original Muscle Shoals sound which put that town on the map: bassist Norbert Putnam, pianist David Briggs, and drummer Jerry Carrigan. Add in masterful guitarist James Burton - who had become indispensable to Elvis after the two recent Las Vegas residencies - and the scene was set.
There were inevitable contrasts to the tightly structured Memphis sessions, but it ended there. In Nashville, once the song-pluggers put in their suggestions, the rest was up to Elvis, who never ceased to surprise all who were present He laid down first and second takes with ease, and then turned around and initiated impromptu studio jams that kept the musicians firing on all cylinders.
It all came to a head on the fourth night. After a couple of warm-ups (including Eddy Arnold's "I Really Don't Want To Know"), they thought back to the country tunes they'd already recorded, and the idea of a country album began to take shape. In short order, Elvis laid down Bob Wills' western-swing standard "Faded Love" and Ernest Tubb's "Tomorrow Never Comes." After cutting Hank Cochran's barroom weeper "Make The World Go Away" (via Eddy Arnold),Elvis and crew moved on to Willie's "Funny How Time Slips Away" and then "I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water," familiar to rock and roll fans of Johnny Rivers, but originally a big country hit for Stonewall Jackson.
The whole crew reconvened for one night in September, a productive session that yielded "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" and ultimately the opening track on the Elvis Country LP, a cover of "Snowbird." Anne Murray's debut hit from that summer '70 was written by Gene MacLellan, composer of "Put Your Hand In the Hand," another Canadian hit that Elvis covered. (The other two tracks from the session showed up later in '71 as the single, "Where Did They Go, Lord" b/w "Rags To Riches.")
Barely five months separated the releases of Elvis Country and Love Letters From Elvis in 1970, and the two albums have always been regarded together in the Elvis canon. In mid-1971, Elvis returned to Studio B for a solid week of recording in May, and three follow-up nights in June, resulting in some 40-plus masters. Much of them were heard later that year on Elvis Sings the Wonderful World Of Christmas, and the following year on his gospel LP, He Touched Me. Ironically, Elvis never recorded again in Nashville's RCA Studio B.
In every way, ELVIS COUNTRY: LEGACY EDITION tracks a seismic change in his recording career. It came at a moment which turned out to be a true turning point for him. "Elvis seemed inspired, singing with a passion and soulfulness that recalled Memphis," wrote Jørgensen in his essential research guide, Elvis Presley: A Life In Music (St. Martin's Press, 1998). "The band fell in with equal feeling, their confidence and expressiveness growing along with his. Both singer and band were performing out of genre, improvising their own rhythms and phrasing on the spot, challenging each other." To paraphrase Jørgensen, "they had something to be proud of."

|Elvis Presley - Rock'n'Roll Only - Just About As Good As It Gets 2CD
Does the world need another retrospective of The King? It's all been out there somewhere in expensive box sets and compendiums of old albums. Ardent Elvis fans have probably got it all in triplicate. But for the newly curious, those asking "What was it about this man that set the world on fire?", our potent selection of key tracks highlights the vital burst of internationally impacting recordings between Elvis's rural rockabilly beginnings (not immediately recognised outside of the southern USA) and his demobbed decline into a glamour boy fronting a series of second-rate movies in the sixties. There was a period of about six years when Elvis really was the King Of Rock 'n' Roll around the globe, with a voice, the looks, the moves and an overload of oomph that sent the kittens crazy and the old cats wild. This is it.
He wasn't only a dynamic performer and outstanding singer, as illustrated here he had a keen ear for a damn good song, whether written specifically for him or - as often as not - those he hand-picked from his personal collection of favourite country and rhythm 'n' blues originals. This is Elvis as he should be remembered.

|Elvis Presley - Such A Night In Pearl Harbor
SUCH A NIGHT IN PEARL HARBOR
The CD is re-mastered for the first time ever, presenting Elvis' last concert in March, 1961, before returning to the stage 8 years later!
This documents Elvis' benefit concert recorded at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, to aid of the USS Arizona Memorial Fund, for the service men who died there during the Japanese attack in 1941.
Listen here to Elvis at his best! The obvious clarity of Elvis' enjoyment is apparent as he is once again on stage, performing just his 3rd show since 1957. With Elvis unleashed and like a livewire, he spontaneously delivers an extraordinary musical experience, which is hailed as one of the most thrilling and exciting of any Presley show ever!
Elvis performs 15 songs and sings every one as if it were the first time he had ever presented them to an audience. This includes many #1 hits and includes classics that were never performed previously or again such as 'A Fool Such As I', 'I Need Your Love Tonight', 'Such A Night' and more.
Also included for the first time ever, is the 30 minute radio broadcast recorded in Hawaii before Elvis' arrival. It promoted the concert for the memorial fund, playing selected tracks from Elvis' Christmas and 'His Hand in Mine' album, released at that time.
As a bonus, the CD is accompanied by a 100 page book that contains many rare and unreleased photographs with extensive and informative linear notes detailing Elvis' arrival and performance

|VA: - Elvis Heard Them Here First
From his debut recording session to his last, Elvis Presley loved to reinterpret. The first song he ever cut, ‘My Happiness’, was one he probably learned from the 1948 recording by John and Sondra Steele. The last song, ‘He’ll Have To Go’, probably came via Jim Reeves (although Jim was not the first to record it – that honour went to one Billy Brown). In 24 years of studio and stage activity, Elvis cut over 150 songs that had been recorded previously – and put his own stamp on all of them, regardless of who sang them first. All of which makes him a guaranteed shoo-in for his own ‘special edition’ in Ace’s popular “You Heard It Here First” series.
Most people who buy Ace CDs will already know what the originals of songs such as ‘Blue Suede Shoes’, ‘One Night’, ‘Hound Dog’ and ‘Blue Moon Of Kentucky’ sound like. We could have gone the obvious route with this project and stuck to Elvis’ revivals of R&B, blues and hillbilly material, but we’ve elected to compile “Elvis Heard Them Here First” from songs he cut after his military service put his career on hold for a while. We’ve tailored our selection to embrace the originals of some of his biggest hits – ‘Always On My Mind’, ‘Girl Of My Best Friend’, ‘Guitar Man’ – and some of his most obscure B-sides and albums cuts. Believe us, they don’t come much more obscure than Duane Dee’s ‘True Love Travels On A Gravel Road’, the Bards’ ‘Goodtime Charlie’s Got The Blues’ or Roger Douglass’ ‘Never Ending’. In doing so, we hope more than a few of even the most hardcore Elvis collectors will discover some original versions of songs they may not have even suspected were ever recorded by anyone other than Elvis.
We can’t say with 100% certainty that Elvis did hear these versions first, and we’re pretty sure that, in one or two cases, he definitely didn’t. Throughout his life, Elvis grabbed music from everywhere. A voracious collector and listener, he loved nothing more than to put his own stamp on a song that he loved, particularly in the years following the ’68 Comeback Special when he was no longer bound by the constraints of what his notorious management insisted he record.
The beautiful vintage Alfred Wertheimer cover shot of the young Elvis, an inevitably jam-packed booklet featuring the usual wealth of rare labels and ephemera, and a detailed sleeve note chronicling the songs in the order he cut his versions, it’s a package no Elvis fan will want to be without, even though he doesn’t sing one note.

'From Elvis in Memphis' is the thirty-fifth album by Elvis Presley originally released in 1969.
The recording of the album marked the definite return of Presley to non-soundtrack albums, after finishing his movie contract with Paramount pictures.
Motivated by his early influences in country, rhythm and blues, and the latest music trend in Memphis being gospel and soul, Presley chose to record these songs at the Memphis-based American Sound Studio.
