Soundboard Recorded Concerts : RCA Stereo and Soundboard [Mixing Desk] Recordings

What is a soundboard recording?

A soundboard recording is the tape recording from the concert mixing desk. During a concert the signal from the instruments and vocalists channels through the central mixing station, or 'soundboard', before going to the PA system. Luckily for Elvis Presley fans, most of Elvis' concerts were recorded this way. Although two track [or more] tapes were used, the sound engineer's, Bill Porter and Bruce Jackson usually recorded two shows per tape, using one track for each, so most Elvis 'soundboard recordings are mono. The tapes were often used to give to new band members to listen to so to give them an idea of previous shows.

The Beginning

Starting in 1996 people were putting out bootleg soundboard concerts that were selling very well. Some of these were stolen but many, lots, where given to new musicians to get an idea of an Elvis concert, some of the sound engineers gave copies to friends, not all is known how they got out, but there are a large number of the 1000 or so concerts Elvis did in the 70s on soundboard in private hands - and also in FTDs hands.

Some high ranking RCA and BMG people are aledged to have sold soundboards to people who then bootlegged them, howver we can't and certainly won't be naming anyone! We do know one well known person was actually aloud for some time to borrow tapes for a weekend, copy them and then release as a bootleg.

After seeing the sales of bootlegs, Ernst Jorgensen convinced BMG [the owner at the time before Sony came into it] to let him start a collector's label, this was in 1999. And they named it Follow That Dream [FTD].

Listed below are all the currently released 'Soundboard' and professionally recorded Stereo concert CDs.

There are also several professional RCA recorded concerts in the stereo section.
