Notes: The next release from the Madison label will be "Elvis - A Legendary Performer Volume 8".
Like the first three volumes from this series this CD will feature previously unreleased live and rehearsal performances, unedited studio recordings in stereo, movie outtakes, interviews, radio greetings, and previously issued tracks with improved sound quality.
The packaging will include a 16 page, illustrated booklet and relevant text.

Some of Volume 8's highlights include great performances from the Ed Sullivan shows, taken directly from the original CBS kinescopes, previously unreleased rehearsals from February 1970, the unedited, undubbed stereo master of "Funny How Time Slips Away" in perfect sound, an extended stereo version of "The Sound Of Your Cry" (alternate take 6), an unedited stereo version of "Danny Boy" (alternate take 9), a previously unreleased live rendition of "An American Trilogy" from August 1972, excerpts from an Australian radio broadcast containing messages from Elvis and a rare interview by DJ Tom Moffatt at the site of Elvis' arrival in Hawaii on January 9, 1973, a great sounding version of Elvis' last live rendition of "For The Good Times" from December 29, 1976 (mixed down to mono from the original binaural recording) and more.

We feel Volume 8 is the best of the series so far and all fans will be pleased as well. Upcoming from the Madison label will be soundboard recordings -- no Volume 9 of the Legendary series will be scheduled before early Fall 2006.
Finally, Madison would like everyone to know they had nothing to do with the recent "Elvis- A Legendary Performer Volumes 3 and 4" releases.
