04 See See Rider (April 9th 1972, Hampton Roads)

Seems like a total ripoff this compilation, even adding audience overdubs to studio recordings.
Anyone who has any info on total running time or de running time of the songs or the take numbers of the (supposed to be) alternate takes, please let me know.

Hi Stefan,
this is really a very strange CD release.
I had it in the past. Don't know the running time, but I think 30% of the Tracks were Soundtracks from EOT + TTWII + the others are normal Studiotracks with added fake audience overdubbings [img]style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/default/sad.gif[/img]

Not worth to have it in the collection. Nothing special incl.

I understand Stefan ;-)
Maybe someone who has it in his collection can bring some light in this case.

This CD exist with 2 diff Covers. See at www.elvisoncd.com under the Import List Link, than from A-Z look at The alternate Recordings.

There you can see both Covers + Backinlays + Label Scans.

Though no mention about the runningtime.

Thnx Andy, eventually I will also have all the different covers up for all releases. Do you happen to know if the January 12th 1973 recordings were taken from RCA's The Alternate Aloha cd or from a soundboard??

So in other words this release holds nothing new except some fakes?

That's correct Einar ... a pure ripoff release from the good old days [img]style_emoticons/default/aggressive.gif[/img]

the alternates were taken from LP/CD's that were available at the time; the CD contains no unreleased items and like the other collector's did I throw it out my collection because it was bad sound and fake.
