There is one more video for sale on iTunes in the USA: it's 'Why?' from The Juliet Letters documentary. Although it's listed as '... This Town...'?!

To get back to the question of Elvis contract, or not, with Universal, I'd say it's still up in the air. He has always had a reversion clause in his deals so no matter how they do commercially he'll own them outright eventually. How do you know this, Martin? Has EC said this somewhere in an intervi...

I notice that Verve is Ms Krall's record label. Maybe it will count as one off her contract. I don't think that it will count as one of her contract, but Miss Krall is a big selling artist, so the record company (Universal ) might find it a good strategy to keep also her husband under contract?!

(no more) out of contract?

In an interview in 2004 EC stated that he was out of contract (after having released TDM and IS), unless Universal would pay him a lot of money (which seemed very unlikely to him - considering the crisis in the music business). But his new releases are still being released by the Universal Music Gro...
