Some periods are certainly slower Elvis wise than others. They are to me, anyway. And right now I'm right in the middle of one of them.
For starters, no exciting news has been announced in about a month, not since Elvis Presley Enterprises told us Elvis On Tour is coming to DVD. FTD promised more information about future releases by the end of January, but not very surprisingly, not a word has been heard from that direction.
More seriously is I'm having problems with my steroe equipment. One moment, the sound is so low I can hardly hear what song is playing. The next, without me touching the volume control, it's so high I'm afraid my ears will be permanently damaged.
But who am I to complain? Last year FTD brought the fans no less than 11 new releases (10 if you don't count the re-release of Rockin' Across Texas without the book). And if you're into bootleggs there was a steady stream of them as well (The Final Homecoming being one of the highlights).
And any day now I'll bet Ernst Jorgerensen will announce that the next classic albums will be Promised Land and Jailhouse Rock Vol. 2. Guess it's time to rush to the store to buy a new stereo.
