The Next FTDs Will Be...

Next month FTD will release a 2xCD version of Blue Hawaii in the classic album series. They will also be producing a strictly limited edition double-disc vinyl edition of the same album.

In March there will be a 2xCD version of Standing Room Only. As you know, the album never came out and it’s possible that the version FTD create was never meant to be, but it’s the best way they can present the Las Vegas masters from February of 1972 and the masters and outtakes from the March 1972 sessions at RCA.

FTD are planning two more CDs for the first half of 2009, and at this time they have scheduled them for mid-April and mid-May.

We feel that considering the huge 30% price increase and the disappointment viewed by many fans, the guys at FTD are giving us some great new releases here. If you like, they seem to be stepping up a gear to make the price increase seem far less of a blow. Both these releases will be double disc sets, so £10.00 per disc seems far more reasonable. Plus, it's great material. I'm not sure I'd be too happy paying £20.00 for, let's say, America... right?

So, these great new titles will be available to pre-order from our site within a day or two.
