Alphabetical Order

In order to explain what the Follow That Dream collector's label is, the following is an updated adaptation of the original 1999 announcement from BMG/RCA to introduce the label from the official Elvis Presley website:

“To serve the dedicated Elvis collector, RCA Records and its parent company, Bertelsmann Music Group (BMG), created an officially endorsed collectors label. Repertoire is issued on behalf of RCA/BMG by Follow That Dream Records (FTD). Its purpose is to complement the commercial and artistic level of RCA's retail release schedule by issuing repertoire that is considered of interest to serious Elvis fans and collectors, material that is generally not part of mainstream RCA label releases to the public at large. This special material is being marketed directly to fans and collectors through fan clubs, specialist magazines, specialist retailers and dedicated mail order companies. In America, Elvis Presley's Graceland is the exclusive distributor through its retail stores at Graceland and through its mail order operation. The releases are also available from Amazon.com

Likewise available through the website of Elvismatters.

The goals of the Follow That Dream label are:

1.       To make artistically and historically important material available for the dedicated collector. This will allow RCA's main retail focus to be maintained and ensure that the general public does not confuse Elvis' actual masters for general release with his substantial outtake material and other specialty material.

2.       To create and promote product that satisfies the insatiable appetite of fans for material. It is also appreciated that the extraordinary maintenance of Elvis' dedicated fan base by committed individuals needs commercial support to ensure survival.

3.       To steer fans away from buying illegal (bootleg) product. The volume of unofficial audio product in the marketplace reached a level which BMG and Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. (EPE) could no longer tolerate. BMG Entertainment International, the RCA Records label and EPE vigorously prosecute any company or individual who violates their copyrights, trademarks and other rights. Bootleg products are seized and all conventions, record fairs, mail order operations and other activities are monitored closely.

Follow That Dream releases six or so Elvis CD's per year. Whenever a new release is ready to be announced, FTD provides information to EPE to post in the FTD News section on Elvis.com and then provides information to its other distributors, fan sites, etc.

At the moment this website has 190 FTD releases (last update: 27/12/2020).
