A new 2CD set of Elvis’ final studio recordings to be released in August. RCA Records and Legacy Recordings are to release Way Down In The Jungle Room, a new double CD (and 2LP vinyl) collection of Elvis Presley‘s last studio recordings. This comprehensive collection brings together, for the first time, master recordings and rare outtakes laid down during two sessions (February 2-8, 1976 and October 28-30, 1976) in Presley’s home studio in Graceland – known as the “Jungle Room”. The outtakes have been newly mixed (by engineer Matt Ross-Spang) at Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Samurai of Prog will release their new double album, “Lost and Found”, on April 20th. Working with original members of Pavlov’s Dog, Lift, Cathedral, Odyssey, and Quill, the band has discovered lost prog epics from the 1970s. Because of dissolving record contracts, band line-up changes, and the shifting landscape of popular music, these amazing compositions were never properly recorded… until now! The Samurai have created stunning, brand-new versions, and the result is a prog-lover’s paradise.The recording is audiophile quality. The package is first-rate (thick cardstock mini-LP style, with a 32-page booklet and artwork by Ed Unitsky).
