Victrola label is proud to present 'Avventura In Oriente' an ultimate release of Elvis' 'Harum Scarum' movie soundtrack material. What makes this new release so special? Most of it has been released before, but never before in such pristine quality! The outtakes come from a direct copy of a DAT cassette that was made on November 1989 in New York City.
It was a surprise to discover masters that we had not heard in the way before. On this DAT copy there were also other outtakes from other studio sessions. Most of these outtakes have been released before but never before have they been heard in stereo. The special feature of the Harum Scarum sessions is that the songs were recorded with two drummers that can also be heard simultaneously, this is clearly audible in the sessions.

The mono masters come from the first English pressing of the UK LP Harem Holiday. What you hear is the authentic sound that was on the LP. As this release deals with the year 1965, some other songs are included on this release as a bonus features, i.e.: - Crying In the Chapel: was issued on April 6, 1965, in RCA's 'Gold Standard Series'. It became Elvis' first million seller (!) since 'Return To Sender' in 1962 and his greatest chart success over a six-year span. - (Such An) Easy Question: was released as a single on June 8, 1965. It was the follow-up release to 'Crying In The Chapel' and peaked at number 11 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The single reached the top of the Billboard Easy Listening Chart, spending two weeks at number one in July 1965. The song was also included on the soundtrack for the movie 'Tickle Me', released on June 3, 1965.

je suis curieux d'écouter cette bande en stéréo, avec les 2 batteurs notamment (DJ Fontana et Kenneth Buttrey), ce n'est pas inédit à ce sujet, il y a eu 2 batteurs sur d'autres enregistrements de musiques de films, Victrola sort des produits de qualité, ça devrait être très bon du point de vue sonore. A suivre.

On ne peut pas dire que la qualité artistique générale de ces chansons soit au top niveau, cette bande originale fait partie de celles que je n'apprécie pas vraiment, mais en effet, certaines versions semblent avoir le mérite d'être intéressantes à découvrir !

Tu as raison, ces chansons font partie pour moi d'un des plus mauvais films d'Elvis, mais depuis déjà un bon moment, il semble que les sorties de musiques de films soient majoritaires, alors en va s'en récupérer encore pas mal pendant un certain temps (ou un temps certain). Faut faire avec, dans le lot, il devrait y avoir quelques sorties de bonnes chansons. Ce qui sera intéressant, c'est si on peut récupérer certaines prises, car il en manque pas mal sur certains films, et sur plusieurs, les bandes ont carrément disparues (détruites ?), probablement ou réenregistrées par dessus peut-être, vu le prix des bandes, ça se faisait parfois.
