Elvis Presley - Lawdy Miss Clawdy - By DJ. Ethan.



REMIX STEREO AND SYNCH BY DJ_ETHAN

Elvis, starring Elvis Presley, was the title of a 1968 United States television special. Sponsored by The Singer Sewing Machine Company, it aired on December 2, 1968 on the NBC television network. The special is commonly referred to as the '68 Comeback Special, because of subsequent developments in Presley's career, but the soundtrack album was released simply as NBC-TV Special. It was directed by Steve Binder and produced by Binder and Bones Howe.
 
Presley's informal jamming in front of a small audience in the '68 Comeback Special is regarded as a forerunner of the so-called 'Unplugged' concept, later popularized by MTV.

Elvis Presley - Wooden Heart Christmas Version - New Sound By DjEthan.



REMAKE SYMPHONIC CHRISTMAS VERSION UNRELEASED BY DJ_ETHAN



"Wooden Heart (Muss I Denn)" is a song best known for its use in the 1960 Elvis Presley film G.I. Blues. The song was a hit for Presley in the United Kingdom, making number one for six weeks, but wasn't released as a single in the United States until November 1964 as the B-side to "Blue Christmas". Presley performed the song live during his Dinner Show concert at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas in 1975. The recording is available on the Elvis Presley live album, Dinner At Eight.

A cover version by Joe Dowell did make it to number one in the US at the end of August 1961, knocking Bobby Lewis' "Tossin' and Turnin'" off the number-one spot of the Billboard Hot 100 after seven weeks. Dowell's version also spent three weeks at number one on the Easy Listening chart.[1]

"Wooden Heart", created by Fred Wise, Ben Weisman, Kay Twomey and German bandleader Bert Kaempfert, was based on a German folk song by Friedrich Silcher, "Muss i' denn zum Städtele hinaus", originating from the Rems Valley in Württemberg, Southwest Germany. "Wooden Heart" features several lines from the original folk song, written in the German Swabian dialect, spoken in Württemberg. The Elvis Presley version was published by Gladys Music, Elvis Presley's publishing company. Bobby Vinton recorded his version in 1975 with those lines translated into Polish.

The Elvis Presley version featured two parts in German, the first one is the first four lines of "Muss i' denn zum Städtele hinaus", whereas the second part appears towards the end and is based on a translation of the English version (therefore not appearing in the original German folk lyrics). This part being "Sei mir gut, Sei mir gut, Sei mir wie du wirklich sollst, Wie du wirklich sollst..." This literally means "Be good to me, Be good to me, Be to me how you really should, How you really should..."

"Wooden Heart" was covered by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in 1993. It was released in their 1995 Playback box set on disc six, "Nobody's Children".

Another Elvis song from the same session, this one a track from G.I. Blues, "The first album I ever owned," Petty says. In 1995 Petty arranged for his family to take a private tour of Graceland, and for the Heartbreakers to record at Sun Studios. "I am the true Elvis fan. The music meant so much to me. I really have to give him credit for saving my life on so many levels. -- Tom Petty, Playback box set liner notes.

O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM BY ELVIS.



Video Edit By DJ_Ethan



Sings by Elvis Presley 1957 (Remake)

"O Little Town of Bethlehem" is a popular Christmas carol. The text was written by Phillips Brooks (1835--1893), an Episcopal priest, Rector of the Church of the Holy Trinity, Philadelphia. He was inspired by visiting the Palestinian city of Bethlehem in 1865. Three years later, he wrote the poem for his church and his organist, Lewis Redner, added the music. Redner's tune, simply titled "St. Louis", is the tune used most often for this carol in the United States.

In the United Kingdom, and sometimes in the U.S. (especially in the Episcopal Church), the hymn tune "Forest Green" is used instead. "Forest Green" was adapted by Ralph Vaughan Williams from an English folk ballad called "The Ploughboy's Dream" which he had collected from a Mr. Garman of Forest Green, Gloucestershire in 1903.Adapted into a hymn tune, it was first published in the English Hymnal of 1906.

Another version by H. Walford Davies, called "Wengen" (or sometimes just "Christmas carol"), is usually performed only by choirs rather than as a congregational hymn. This is because the first two verses are for treble voices with organ accompaniment, with only the final verse as a chorale/refrain harmony. This setting includes a recitative from the Gospel of Luke at the beginning, and cuts verses 2 and 4 of the original 5-verse carol. This version is traditionally used at the service of Nine Lessons and Carols in Kings College, Cambridge.

"LIVING TO LOVE YOU" ELVIS NEW SONG ?



Cerca de treinta y cuatro años después de la muerte del rey, una nueva canción que se ha descubierto y confirmado por un forense de ser el rey, Elvis Presley. Ed Primeau fue contactado por Mike Chesney WWMT de TV 3, la filial de la CBS en Kalamazoo Grand Rapids Michigan para aprovechar su experiencia de identificación de voz para confirmar que la canción es original.

Nearly thirty four years after The King’s death, a new song has been discovered and confirmed forensically to be the king himself, Elvis Presley. Ed Primeau was contacted by Mike Chesney of WWMT TV 3 the CBS affiliate in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids Michigan to use his voice identification expertise to confirm the song is genuine.

..................................

Ed Primeau es el presidente de Producciones Primeau, Inc. con sede en Rochester Hills, Michigan, así como un audio muy respetado y experto en vídeo forense. 

Ed Primeau is president of Primeau Productions, Inc. based out of Rochester Hills, Michigan, as well as a well-respected audio and video forensic expert.

............................................

El equipo de televisión llegó a las 10 de la mañana el pasado martes y dio a Ed las tres versiones de la canción "Living to Love You", que fue escrita por un residente fallecido Grand Rapids e interpretada por Elvis Presley. El equipo filmó a la investigación forense Ed y luego lo entrevistó acerca de su conclusión.

The TV crew arrived about 10 am last Tuesday and gave Ed the three versions of the song “Living to Love You” which was written by a deceased Grand Rapids resident and performed by Elvis Presley. The crew filmed Ed’s forensic investigation and then interviewed him about his conclusion.

.......................................
La teoría de Ed es que mientras que en el área de Detroit en 1976, Elvis tenía un interés en esta canción, cuya letra le llegó al rey antes de su visita. De acuerdo con Primeau ", A Elvis le gustaba la canción y grabaron una demo, que es lo que tenemos en estas grabaciones.

Ed’s theory is that while in the Detroit area in 1976, Elvis had an interest in this song whose lyrics made their way to the King prior to his visit. According to Primeau, “Elvis liked the song and recorded a demo, which is what we have in these recordings.”
.............................

Las tres versiones son sólo voz y piano y no suena como una canción de Elvis, que puede ser la gran razón por qué la canción no fue grabada y lanzada. Primeau se refiere al equipo de filmación a Gary Graff, periodista icono del rock y columnista de la revista Billbord que es amigo de Primeau y locales Metro residente del área de Detroit. También confirmó que el de la canción fuera el mismísimo Elvis. Graff también se refirió a las credenciales de Primea forenses y la conclusión de la entrevista en video.

The three versions are vocals and piano only and do not sound like an Elvis song, which may be a huge reason why the song was not recorded and released. Primeau referred the film crew to Gary Graff, an icon rock journalist and Billbord magazine columnist who is a friend of Primeau’s and local Metro Detroit Area resident. He also confirmed the song to be Elvis himself. Graff also commented on Primea’s forensic credentials and conclusion in the video interview.
 
..........................................
 
Hay tres criterios para llevar a cabo la identificación de voz, capacidad de escucha crítica, la medición electrónica y la inspección visual de la onda sonora. "Living To Love You" se comparó con otras dos canciones de Elvis grabadas en la misma época que sirvieron como ejemplo de la voz de Elvis Presley. El tono de voz, vibrato y el estilo de cantar es un partido idéntico a Elvis Presley.

There are three criteria for conducting voice identification, critical listening skills, electronic measurement and visual inspection of the sound wave. “Living to Love You” was compared to two other Elvis songs recorded around the same time that served as an exemplar of Elvis Presley’s voice. The vocal tone, vibrato and style of singing is an identical match to Elvis Presley.
.....................................

Tradicionalmente, una prueba de identificación de voz incluye el experto forense toma un ejemplar de la persona en la voz de las preguntas para comparar con el registro en cuestión. Como Elvis está muerto, Primeau utilizó las dos canciones del equipo de la televisión y siempre estuvo de acuerdo con ellas como ejemplos.

Traditionally, a voice identification test includes the forensic expert making an exemplar of the person in questions voice to compare with the recording in question. Since Elvis is dead, Primeau used the two songs the TV crew provided and he agreed on them as exemplars.

.................................

Primeau tomó nota de la resonancia y el vibrato de estilo emparejado de Elvis Presley. Primeau fue más allá y descargó una muestra de un imitador de Elvis a través de Internet y se comparó la voz de las grabaciones en cuestión. Utilizando la tecnología del espectrógrafo digital, Primeau compararó las dos conocidas canciones de Elvis, las tres tomas de "Living to Love You", el imitador y una canción de Neil Diamond. Las lecturas del espectrográfico confirmaron la opinión Primeau y mostró los resultados evidentes para el equipo de televisión.


Primeau noted the vibrato resonance and style matched Elvis Presley’s. Primeau went further and downloaded a sample of an Elvis impersonator from the Internet and compared that voice to the recordings in question. Using digital spectrograph technology, Primeau compared the two known Elvis songs, the three takes of “Living to Love You”, the impersonator and a Neil Diamond song. The spectrographic readings confirmed Primeau’s opinion and displayed the obvious results for the TV crew.

I Believe was commissioned and introduced by Jane Froman on her television show, and became the first hit song ever introduced on TV. Froman, troubled by the uprising of the Korean War in 1952 so soon after World War II, asked Drake, Graham, Shirl and Stillman to compose a song that would offer hope and faith to the populace. In addition to Froman, "I Believe" has been recorded by Elvis Presley.

Shawn Klush - En Lima Perú, resumen de su paso.









Un abrazo a mi amigo Ricardo presidente del club de fans de Elvis en Perú.

Gerald Nelson - Songs I Wrote For Elvis.


Pensé que podría ser divertido crear un CD de las grabaciones originales de canciones de demostración que escribí para Elvis Presley. Algunas las grabó, otras no lo hizo. Era un buen amigo y yo respeté su amistad tanto que nunca le pedí grabar ninguno de mis trabajos. Lamar Fike o Freddy Beanstalk ponían las cosas que hizo en sus manos. Por lo general, me enviaban un guión y dice: "Escribe algo para esta película". En la mayoría de veces era o divertidas o locas.


Divertida: "Dominique Mi Bull" Creo que fue para la película "Stay Away Joe" en la que se compra un toro de raza, el toro resulta ser gay y no realizar aquello para lo cual se compró. Él tiene la idea de que él y su novia india podrian mostrar al toro que hacer! No use esta canción en la película, tal vez hoy podría? Otra divertida fue escribir "The Chicken Scratch". Muchas risas en el estudio cuando yo estaba tratando de hacer que el sonido de la guitarra sonara como un pollo.

Loca: "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" Ahora, ¿cómo hace uno para escribir una canción en torno a ese título? Pensé que este absurdo guión tenía que ser una broma. Que resultó ser la peor canción absolutamente que he oído! Esta composición loca fue utilizada en la película "Easy Come Easy Go" junto con otras dos que están en este CD, "Sing You Children" y "The Love Machine". Había cuatro canciones en la película. Escribí tres de ellas. La mejor canción de las cuatro que presentó fue "Easy Come, Easy Go", que no utilizó. Vaya usted a saber.

Los productores de la película de Elvis pasaron de la canción "Lazy Love Affair", para una película que no  recuerdo. Sin embargo, la grabación de la demo que se puede escuchar en este CD, fue utilizado más adelante en dos películas: Miami Blue and Caged Fear.

Grabó "If I Were You" y la puso en el album "Love Letters". Por extraño que parezca esta canción, incluso hoy en día, se un poco de airplay y las ventas en todo el mundo. Es la única canción mía no-película que se presentó nunca a él.
Para aquellos de ustedes que les gusta "tid-bits" aquí hay una interesante para usted. Una norma actual, "Tragedy", fue escrita por Fred Burch y yo. La canción ha vendido millones y millones de discos y ha sido grabada por 20 a 25 artistas diferentes en los últimos años. Se escribió la canción para Elvis!

Chet Atkins fue el productor de Elvis en la RCA en el momento y se la envié a Chet de Elvis. Chet pasó de la canción. Años más tarde, Chet me dijo que había "perdido un número uno, pero que él lo haría por mí", así lo hizo. Lo grabó en los próximos años por Charlie Rich, Floyd Cramer, y los cantantes Anita Kerr. Yo no la incluyo en esta colección, ya que Paul McCartney compró más adelante la publicación y era demasiado problema conseguir una licencia para su uso en un proyecto como éste.

Espero que usted consiga algunos momentos de diversión al escuchar algunas de estas cosas.

.................................

I thought it might be fun to put together a CD of the original demonstration recordings of songs that I wrote for Elvis Presley. Some he recorded, some he didn’t. He was such a good friend and I respected his friendship so much that I never ask him to record any of my work. Lamar Fike or Freddy Beanstalk put those that he did in his hands. Usually they would send me a script and say: ”Write something for this movie”. For the most part that was either fun or insane.

Fun: “Dominique My Bull” I think that was for the “Stay Away Joe” film wherein he buys a bull to breed, the bull turns out to be gay and won’t perform that for which he was purchased. He gets the idea for he and his Indian girl friend to show the bull what to do! They didn’t use this song in the movie, perhaps today they might? Another fun write was “The Chicken Scratch”. Lots of laughter in the studio when I was trying to make the guitar sound like a chicken.

Insane: “Yoga Is As Yoga Does” Now how does one go about writing a song around that title? I thought that this scripted nonsense has to be a joke. It turned out to be the absolute worst Song I ever heard! This crazy composition was used in the “Easy Come Easy Go” movie along with two others that are on this CD, “Sing You Children” and “The Love Machine”. There were four songs in this movie. I wrote three of them. The best song of the four that I submitted was “Easy Come, Easy Go”, they didn’t use that one. Go figure.

The Elvis movie producers passed on a song “Lazy Love Affair”, for which film I forget. But the demo recording that you can hear on this CD, was later used in two movies: Miami Blue and Caged Fear.

He recorded “If I Were You” and put it in the “Love Letters” album. Oddly enough this song, even today, gets quite a bit of airplay and sales around the world. It’s the only non-movie song of mine that was ever submitted to him.

For those of you who like “tid-bits” here is an interesting one for you. A contemporary standard, “Tragedy”, was written by Fred Burch and me. The song has sold millions and millions of records and has been recorded by 20-25 different artists over the years. We wrote the song for Elvis!

Chet Atkins was Elvis’s producer at RCA at the time and I sent it to Chet for Elvis. Chet passed on the song. Years later Chet told me that he “missed on that one, but that he would make it up to me” He did. He recorded it in years to come by Charlie Rich, Floyd Cramer, and the Anita Kerr Singers. I didn’t include it in this collection because Paul McCartney later purchased the publishing, you know that Beatle boy, and it is too much trouble to get a license for use in a little project like this.

I hope you get some fun out of listening to some of this stuff.
Gerald Nelson



Gracias Mr. TCBMan por el link.

Are you Roman tonight? Estatua de 'Elvis' cincelado 1800 años antes de su nacimiento va a subasta.

Clásico de Elvis: La estatua tiene un parecido inconfundible con el verdadero Rey.

Con sus características corriendo cincel, el pelo hacia atrás cardado y alegre, el parecido es inconfundible.

Pero increíblemente esta talla de Elvis Presley fue creada alrededor de 1800 años antes de que el Rey del Rock and Roll gorjeó su primera nota.

La sorprendente semejanza ha salido a la luz como parte de una venta de antigüedades de la antigua casa de subastas Bonhams.
 
El Elvis Romano es en realidad un verdadero mármol acroterion - una especie de ornamento arquitectónico que a menudo se encuentran para la decoración en las esquinas de un sarcófago, una tumba de piedra o cámara funeraria.
Forma parte de una colección que posee sede en Melbourne, Graham Geddes - uno de los coleccionistas más importantes del mundo - que se estima que se venden por más de 1 millón de libras, cuando salga a la venta en octubre.

Incluso el propio Geddes ha apodado el lookalike asombrosa 'Elvis'.

Georgiana Aitken especialista de antigüedades agregó: "Tiene una semejanza asombrosa con Elvis Presley. El flequillo es el que lo hace.

Hacer algunas cosas raras y extravagantes en las esquinas de los sarcófagos.

"No sé para qué propósito sirve y el flequillo no era un peinado del día por lo que yo sé.

La escultura 'Elvis' es del 2 º siglo dC y se estima que rondará las £ 25.000 a £ 30.000.

Un portavoz de Bonhams dijo: "Es quizás el más extraño elemento de la venta, sin duda a los ojos modernos.

"Los fans del Rey del Rock 'n Roll, viendo ese rostro de un pasado lejano serán perdonados por pensar que su ídolo pudo muy bien haber vivido una vida anterior en Roma!

"En cuanto a este cara con su flequillo, como Elvis-, la mandíbula fuerte y la nariz, uno es conducido inevitablemente a la idea de que el rostro humano para todos es la diversidad y sutileza, después de todo tiene una habilidad que se repita."

................................

With his dashing chiselled features, swept back hair and perky bouffant the resemblance is unmistakable.



But incredibly this carving of Elvis Presley was created around 1800 years before the King of Rock and Roll first warbled his first note.

The amazing likeness has come to light as part of a sale of ancient antiques by the auction house Bonhams.

The Roman Elvis is in fact a genuine marble acroterion - a kind of architectural ornament often found for decoration on the corners of a sarcophagus, a stone tomb or burial chamber.

It forms part of a collection owned by Melbourne-based Graham Geddes - one of the world's most foremost collectors - which is estimated to sell for more than £1m when it goes on sale in October.

Even the Geddes himself has nicknamed the astounding lookalike ‘Elvis’.

Antiquities specialist Georgiana Aitken added: 'It bears an uncanny likeness to Elvis Presley. It's the quiff that does it.

You do some weird and wacky things at the corners of sarcophagi.

'I don't know what purpose they served and the quiff was not a hairstyle of the day as far as I know.'

The 'Elvis’ sculpture is 2nd Century AD and is estimated to make £25,000 to £30,000.

A spokesman for Bonhams said: "It is perhaps the strangest item in the sale, certainly to modern eyes.

"Fans of the King of Rock 'n Roll, seeing this face from the distant past will be forgiven for thinking that their idol may well have lived a previous life in Rome!

"Looking at this face with its Elvis-like quiff, strong jaw and nose, one is inevitably led to the thought that the human face for all is diversity and subtlety has after all an ability to repeat itself."
