Elvis - Follow That Dream
In 1999, a Danish historian named Ernst Jorgensen had a dream: he wanted to start a specialist label for Elvis completists and die hard fans. His aim was to offer studio outtakes, lost masters and rare "soundboard recordings" (direct from a mixing console) from numerous 70s live shows - legally and in the best sound quality possible. Jorgensen was no upstart – in fact he was already head of the Danish department of RCA and the driving force behind all major Elvis re-issues, since BMG took over the company in the late 1980s. Amongst his masterpieces was the Grammy nominated box set "Elvis - The King of Rock 'n' Roll: The Complete 50's Masters" from 1992.
A lifelong Elvis fan himself, Jorgensen knew what real fans were looking for, but more importantly: he knew where to look for it! Being a historian and a lifelong crime novel fiend proves to be important when it comes to finding lost crown jewels. BMG (now Sony Music International) held his expertise in high esteem and granted him his dream. As a result, the label "Follow That Dream" (FTD) was launched in 1999. Ernst Jorgensen was keen to re-establish Elvis as a serious artist and to weaken the ever growing market of bootlegs worldwide. The limited FTD editions are peerless when it comes to sound, art work and research. They are highly priced by collectors and sell out fast. Get 'em while you can!
