Not sure what the previous reviewer was saying as CD1 includes the original master recordings-in other words the tracks that were on the original album. The packaging and "look" of this set is excellent-great photos and a quality presentation-however the content does leave a lot to be desired. Firstly the translation of the text is appalling and seems a bit stilted. Secondly and most importantly the quality of the recordings is average. Despite saying that they used the original tapes (RCA have confirmed that this is not the case) there is a lot of hiss and background noise.On the plus side there are some original radio ads which are great for completists.A couple of small points-why are amazon selling bootlegs? (the outtakes are still in copyright in Europe as the 50 year rule means 50 years from release not from recording) and why have MRS gone to all this effort only to leave out the Wooden Heart Outtakes!I would recommend this set only for the completist (like me!) otherwise wait for the official version that comes out later this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great package 30 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this soundtrack and always have.I still have my original mono,first-pressing copy.The songs were so beautifully recorded,Elvis and all giving their best,especially regarding "Doin' The Best That I Can." This package gives you visuals,info and studio chatter that puts you in the studio as the songs are created and this crucial point in The Kings career.An incredible piece....

This is a fantastic boxset from Memphis Recording Service!!!! 4 CD's with all the sessions from GI BLUES shows ELVIS in top form and high spirit...you can feel his excitement to be back to recording after 2 years working for Uncle Sam...The boxset has a superb presentation...with a 100 page booklet...A GREAT release!!!

I find the 100 book fasinating with so many unreleased behind the scene photos, informative text (even has Elvis's contract for the movie G.I.Blues)and more importantly, the sound is crystal clear. The master recordings themselves sound better than ever before and there are sounds i never heard before, great mastering. I am very impressed with the outakes that shows stage by stage shows how Elvis made those songs work and the studio banter is great. CRYSTAL CLEAR SOUND and like all Memphis releases great value.
