There are alternate takes
, different mixes, instrumentals, ditched vocals and unheard songs.
Proving that alternate takes
and B-sides aren't always the illuminating force that some reissues stake their pride on, Columbia Records has enhanced the greatness of Bruce Springsteen's breakthrough album with an insightful "making of" docu and an exceptional concert video from 1975.
Shorter, Fuller and Walton all contribute strong tunes, and there are generous alternate takes
included in this Van Gelder edition.
In addition to dozens of deleted scenes and some alternate takes
, the set also contains more than a few bloopers, some of which reveal just how much bonding went on during the shooting of the original episodes.
The second disc contains 25 songs from Presley's post-army movie career, concentrating on alternate takes
from GI Blues, Flaming Star, Wild In The Country and Blue Hawaii, from the early 60s.
Added tracks are mostly alternate takes
of tracks already included, but for anorak fans the last two albums have the radio commercials for the albums, too.
In addition to the December 9, 1964, session which resulted in the original album, this edition also contains alternate takes
and sextet versions of some of the sections recorded the following day, as well as the only recording of the complete piece in concert performance, at the Festival Mondial du Jazz Antibes the following July.
