Notes: 

Annoucement: Elvis' pivotal Year of 1969 celebrated with Elvis: American Sound 1969 featuring over 90 tracks of rare and unreleased material from Elvis' 1969 legendary American Sound Studio sessions, including 'In The Ghetto' and 'Suspicious Minds'. FTD have revised the original wording to the press release they first put out about the 'American Sound '69' set. The most important parts read: 'Although originally intended as a Sony download release only, FTD agreed to release a limited physical edition after requests from many of you. As this was put together somewhat hastily, clarification is needed regarding the content. The digital set was never intended to be the 'complete' sessions. Therefore it does not include sub-standard, inconsequential and fragmented material that has surfaced on bootleg over the years. It features all the recordings deemed essential by the producers.

To celebrate FTD's 20th Anniversary, FTD is pleased to announce the release of 'Elvis: American Sound 1969' a 5-CD set that's part of FTD's new 'Sessions' series, includes a 28-page booklet with rare photos and memorabilia.

'Suspicious Minds' celebrates its 50th Anniversary on August 26th, 2019
 

The 5 CDs are housed in a CD carrier adorned by original tape box documentation.
