From Sunset To Vegas is a 2-disc set in FTD's 5" digipack format. The main body of the release is the rehearsal recorded at RCA's studio on Sunset Blvd on August 16, 1974. There is a bonus section on Disc 2 with 10 live recordings from Elvis' Las Vegas engagement in August/September 1974.
Released at the same time is Jailhouse Rock a 2-disc set in the classic album series. Disc 1 features one disc of masters, alternate masters, movie masters and a few bonus cuts in mono. Disc 2 consists of session takes - all in binaural. The package features the 7" inch digipack format with 12-page booklet. There is no In And Outtakes section to the booklet, as FTD will be releasing 'Jailhouse Rock Vol. 2' next year, and it will make more sense to have this section when the entire intended repertoire content is released.
