I spent all day yesterday and a bit of this morning trying to compile some sense into August 1st 1969 press conference.
As far as photos go, well I've probably not even put 10% of them up and trying to sort them into order became impossible....
It's looking great !

I see you've got the pics to display 'side-by-side'.

When adding pics of the sleeves & labels in the discography section, I try to get them like that but they always display in a single downward line.

Takes up a lot of room & sometimes requires the viewer to 'scroll down' to see them all !

Am I missing something ?
Yes, you are missing something lol

I edited a couple of your posts for you to see, just click on the edit button and you'll see what I do to lay them out across the page - you need a row.
This is back to the tabe tr and td buttons I was saying about the other day.

Code: Select all

[centre]
[table]

[tr]
[td] image 1 - front cover [/td]
[td] image 2 - back cover[/td]
[/tr]

[tr]
[td] image 3 - side 1 [/td]
[td] image 4 - side 2 [/td]
[/tr]

[/table]
[/centre]
So above image 1, 2 etc is where you'd put your attachment in line.
But go and edit... darn, can't recall which album it was, think I did a few, try, might have been Elvis In Demand, but I'm sure I did some earlier ones as well.

Okay, good, but go and look at The Best of Elvis and also Rock n Roll as they are empty of any images.

Well, my strategy is that I'm scanning my own collection to get these pics.

The two you mention I don't have so are left blank.

I could Google the internet & find the 'missing' ones & post those images, but then there are all the recriminations & moans we could get about not giving credits to the copyright owners etc.

Something of a minefield.

You had them already - you even posted text in them. The text is still there but the images you had have now disappeared.

Yes, I had pics found 'on the net' & posted them.

Then I worked out my strategy & removed them.

You've probably read all the stuff about properly 'crediting' net photos elsewhere on another forum.

I can reinstate them if you're happy with that.

I'm happy to have them - I don't think records that sold in their millions are going to worry about having their image on a site.

There is a thing called hot-linking which is where people link to an image on another site and use that sites bandwidth to display images on a differrent site. Thats a bit off. That's a bit like coming round to my swimming pool after I've used the neighbours outside tap to fill it up and they're on a water meter! (That was embarrassing - they weren't expected back until the following day)

However, if you're not comfortable, leave them and I can always pull out my vinyl and grab some shots.

Hmm... just checked the post and the link is correct although the text is not correct, but i could have said "Click here" for the text.
I'll just do it as text without a link built in:-

https://15562days.com/clip

and that should work no problem.

Edit: Yep found it, only put 1 x / in the link

Code: Select all

[url=https:/15562days.com/clip]15562days/clip[/url]
Have editted original post so it should work from now on.

The 1970 double album 'From Memphis to Vegas' & 'From Vegas to Memphis' SF 8080/1.

I'm sure it it was re-released later as two single albums: 'Elvis In Person at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada' & 'Elvis Back in Memphis', but can't find any reference to that anywhere.

Or am I thinking of the CDs ?

They were - but they kept the same numbers, hence its SF 8080/1 (SF8080 and SF8081)

In true RCA form, to get fans to buy the same product twice they must have pre planned it before the double even came out.
If you're thinking of scans I'd have put them in together.
Or,
If you think it's more accurate to have them seperate then I can arrange it, no probs.

It was definitely a separate release because they had to re-print the sleeves, removing all the 'Vegas to Memphis' &
'Memphis to Vegas' references !

And the labels too, which were numbered 'Side 1, 2, 3 & 4' !

I'm not fussy about a separate entry, I don't have the re-released albums to scan anyway !
