About this deal

This audiophile demonstration album contains 13 tracks which were recorded with 50 year old Neumann valve microphones. Like with the Jordanaires when he sang, we would set it up with a unidirectional mike, so he would be standing right in front of them, facing them, and they would have their own directional microphone and they would be singing to one another. The discovery of these 2-track masters comprising Stereo ‘57 – The Essential Elvis Volume 2, is nothing short of a miracle, and this 180-gram pressing cut at 45 RPM from Quality Record Pressings sounds so astonishing, your jaw will hit the floor! On behalf of ‘The Symphony of Dreams Charitable Trust we would like to thank you very much for your time, (extra time) and graciousness. Yet one day years later when Thorne was “cleaning out” his tapes closet, remarkably, he set these 2-track backup tapes aside, intending to dispose of them.

Seller shipped immediately but the book took over half a month to arrive, due to the carrier used on the first leg, to get the package to USPS. These are the songs that broke him and then sustained him on radio and television and at the movie theatres.As the record progresses, arrangements take shape and Presley, growing more confident that a keeper take is imminent, sings with more enthusiasm. For serious Elvis fans and anyone else interested in the creative process, Volume 2 meets the first definition of “essential” as well as the second: it’s indispensable stuff. When the Jordanaires sing “Peace in the Valley,” you’ll swear you’re hearing a melody sent from heaven. The Jordanaires, a vocal quartet originally formed as a gospel group in 1948, gained fame largely for being Elvis’ background singers, both in live appearances and recordings, from 1956 to 1972.

And what’s more you will be able to hear a little more detail and natural sound quality courtesy of AVIDs’ in house engineering team. The resultant versions of what is otherwise absurdly familiar material will leave you breathless (provided you're an Elvis fan — and shame on you if you're not).
