Disc 5

The Demo Acetates

When a new elvis movie was created, Colonel Parker used to ask several songwriters to write songs for the movie. Mostly the colonel gave them a title or a description of the scene and the songwrters understood what kind of a song the colonel needed.

This so called 'demos' were then recorded (at expenses of the songwriters) on an acetate disc and sended to the colonel for approval. Obviously there was concurrence between the different songwriters, some of the songs were rejected, some were actually recorded by elvis.

The actual demos are unique, mostly there were only one or two acetates made and due to the material (wax on a metal plate) they were very fragile and could only be played a few times.

This CD contains newly discovered demo recordings, all of these recordings were recorded and written for the Elvis Movies. Some were not used for obvious reasons, simply because they were not good enough, and some u can actually imagine elvis singing them.

'Fun in acapulco' is almost a copy of the demo, except for some lyrics that were changed during the recording.

Most of these acetates come from the dolores fuller collection and were written by her and compose by Ben Weissman, except for fun in acapulco (Ben Weisman/Sid Wayne), night life (Giant/Baume/Kaye), I need somebody to lean on (Pomus/Shuman)& love on the rocks (Sid Tepper/Bennett),

Sit back and enjoy! Some of these songs might turn out to be completely different then you expect.
