Elvis And Ike Live Again In ValCom's Library

CLEARWATER, Fla., June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ValCom, Inc. (VLCO.PK) announced today that it has started the process of re-mastering its audio library in preparation for a major international release of 4 music albums and a feature film.

In the process of re-mastering the audio library, company representatives have had their first opportunity to listen to rare and unreleased performances of Elvis Presley, The Platters, Ike and Tina Turner, and many others from the early 1960s.

On one master tape, Elvis is featured in a studio session along with the legendary vocal group The Platters. The session was produced by Buck Ram and engineered by Elvis's long-time, personal engineer Bones Howe. It was a joint effort between The Platters, Buck Ram, and Elvis to produce an anniversary album that included renditions of The Great Pretender, Love Me Tender, Only You, Mack the Knife, Don't Be Cruel and The Twist.

The first play-out of the master tapes took place in an undisclosed Atlanta recording studio with ValCom CEO, Vince Vellardita and a team of recording and television industry executives in attendance.

"The quality of the master tapes is pristine! It was an incredible experience to hear performances from these pioneers of rock & roll. This is the first step of many in monetizing our library and bringing revenue and earnings creating shareholder value," stated Vince Vellardita, President and CEO of ValCom.

Also in attendance in Atlanta was Joel Wertman, a music industry veteran who is responsible for generating millions of dollars in music sales and is credited with breaking multiple music artists including No Doubt, The Goo Goo Dolls, and Bush. Wertman has been tapped to work with ValCom in producing a minimum of 4 albums that will be distributed in an output deal with Universal.

ValCom and Wertman will also be collaborating to produce a feature film that tells the true story of The Platters. The 4 albums and feature film are the first of many products that will be developed by ValCom utilizing the vast resources available in its content library.
