A boy from Tupelo FTD


 Cuando hace años Ernst Jorgensen hablaba del proyecto SUN para FTD declaraba que no se podía de hablar de "nuevas" canciones" pero que sin embargo iban a poner todo de parte de Sony para traer algo desconocido aún para los oídos de los ans de Elvis.
Hoy en 2012 vemos que esto se ha cumplido excepto por algo. Y es que esta nueva producción además de traer un sonido totalmente remasterizado, mas de alla de lo que hay en "Complete Masters", también incluye megararezas de la incipiente era de los primeros shows de Elvis.

De hecho este es un set atesorable, tanto fans como para aficionados al rock y la buena música. Por muchos años este "A boy from Tupelo" será conocido como la "ultimate" edition de a lo que esta epoca se refiere.

En esta oportunidad la podremos disfrutar en todo su esplendor en formato sin pérdida, gracias a un fan anónimo de alguna parte del mundo. Enjoy!
