As this is one in many releases of legendary jam session, with facts already said many times, I'll focus only on what makes this diferent from others.Sound is really much improved this time,thou it's clishe to say.
Now it's easier to recognize voices and even hear some singing you haven't
noticed before.Remastering is done by Kevan Budd, famous for his work on 'Elvis at Sun'.Cheers Kevan! Four 'new discovered' songs are all instrumental versions, first one being nice jam. Stand out is Carl's guitar picking on 'Jingle Bells'.'Softly and Tendery' is one minute longer, with extra verse duet between Jerry & Elvis and again distinctive Perkins guitar solo for the first time, and this is really great! All songs are now in it's original sequence, just like on the tape found in Elvis private collection (how about that, give us more!) - ergo better sound.Booklet is rather poor,as usual with RCA-BMG Elvis releases.
First RCA edition and last year Charly records edition have mutch better design and booklets with rare photos.
Why not include all photos from the session but only famous one?
This album is not recomended for casual listener, since sound quality is not high up to today's standards and people involved in this jam session were not aware of being recorded at that time,they were just having fun.
For Rock and Roll or Rockabilly collector, however this is a must.
