      • Elvis Presley - I'm Leaving. an amazing album released last year capturing Elvis's recording session in May 1971 at RCA's Studio B in Nashville. the sound is so relaxed in a soulful country way - one can't help feeling if RCA and the Colonel were not so bent on using Elvis as a short term money making machine in the 70's, this album would have been a classic if released in 1972

              Great lp, you've reminded me that I'll have to get my copy out to play.

              I'll add if folk/bluegrass is not your thing, avoid this album like the plague.

                Great recording, very nice pressing. MoFi has made some less then exhilarating missteps in the past but, this isn’t one of them! The latest Miles releases are evidence too, that they are currently on track, coming with the sonic goods.

            • Elvis Presley - Way Down - In the Jungle Room - 2LP 2016 Euro pressing.



              Released last year featuring different takes (including the odd chat and laughter) from Elvis's last studio recordings, in Feb 1976 over 5 days and Oct 1976 over 2 days before he died. This is his one of Elvis's lounge rooms at Gracelands and where all the recordings were done via RCA's live semi trailer that was plugged in outside. I have been to Graceland's and seeing the Jungle Room in person is pretty amazing.

              I find these recordings are superb and Elvis still had it - even right to the very end. Excellent sound as well

                • Had this test pressing around for a while, never did anything for me sonically until tonight. Kevin Gray remastering for Exhibit Records. Playing is sensational!

                    the original is an RCA, and I believe it was recorded in Chets home studio. my copy has above average surface noise but the SQ is really good. another Chet Atkins record to add to the pile was produced around the same time with Lenny Breau "standard brands" has really good sonics and music.

                • Another Exhibit Records test pressing. Didn't even know had, Belafonte at Carnegie Hall remastered by Kevin Gray.

                  • Amazing sounding soundtrack co-written by Rosenthal and Leonard Bernstein. Mastered by George Piros is, recorded by Robert Fine (?). Tom Fine didn't know the answer.

                      It just went on my list

                  • LIARS - TFCF.



                    brand new album from Liars, but back with only Aussie Angus Andrew this time round. Like most Liar's album, its nothing like what has come before. Heavily relying on acoustic instruments meshed with electronics brings a sonic landscape that is somewhat claustrophobic but at the same time mesmerising. This is a grower.
