As the decade wore on, Elvis ploughed across America, playing thousands of shows, but his reliance on drugs and his weight problems eventually took their toll and he burnt out in For most of his career, Elvis's recorded output was punctuated by poor record company decisions and endless singles collections.

The nine Elvis albums you should own. Elvis Andy McDonald.

The years covered are to Throw on Soho Scene, get some red lightbulbs, a smoke machine and recreate the atmosphere of those long gone jazz clubs. The wines are marvellous, but they arent bought to be drunk.
Similarly, many of these records will never be played, not least because the value drops the moment you do play them. People who invest in fine wines do so because they like wine. In that sense the record market has simply caught up with people who collect toys, teddy bears etc. The Sus nothing wrong with this, but it does mean that, like the wine, things start being priced on their ability to gain value. I buy my records to play them. Whether or not you representative of other buyers is another point.

It looks like they have done a very good job with this first release. Nuf sed. Thanks for covering this release on SDE, Paul.
Would love to see more of these jazz audiophile all-analog reissues get a mention. They all sound magnificent. CD debate, but I very much doubt there is any better way to hear these jazz albums, save for listening to the master tape itself. Right, one overzealous needle drop and there goes your prefect record. In all fairness this really should get a wider release in a more affordable package.

Sold out in minutes. Prices will continue to skyrocket as long as people continue to pay. I think the German language Kraftwerk reissues are a good example: the readily available black are sonic equals no? Any idea what future releases like this by Craft? Craft has access to the Concord group and there is a lot of great music on the Stax, Fantasy, Prestige labels, etc.
No, wait, forget I said any of that! At copies, this seems like more of a hype tool than an actual product. They would be much smarter to take 1 week of pre orders and then press accordingly. Its limited availability is the reason why they sold 1, copies in minutes. The market for bespoke pieces like this is very healthy at the moment and Craft obviously knew that it was going to fly off the shelves. Never mind!

The tape includes several cover versions of songs not available elsewhere by the Beatles, including the Bruce Channel number one " Hey! McCartney bought the tape at a auction, and since none of it was used for Anthology , it has been assumed to be of poor sound quality.
