3000 South Paradise Road provides a unique insight of Elvis rehearsing 6 hours before the opening night at the Las Vegas Hilton on August 4, 1972 and a complete performance from August 12, 1972.
Disc 1 is taken from the original reel. Disc 2 is from a personal cassette tape recording. The sonic quality on disc 2 is below standard, but the historical significance of the recording more than compensates for its audio limitations.
This is a special collector edition housed in a 7" (17,5 cm) triple-fold-out cover. Includes a 16-pages booklet.
Elvis delivered a strong and vibrant concert with songs like Proud Mary, Polk Salad Annie or Suspicious Minds. He also demonstrated what he was able to do vocally with great renditions of What Now My Love or An American Trilogy. In addition we have a good mix of current hits and oldies but goldies which leaves no desires open. Excellent !
Rehearsal: This Las Vegas stage rehearsal just hours before the Opening Night on August 4, 1972 wasn`t available before in any form. Therefore it`s an essential addition to any collecetion. Just listen to Elvis trying songs like True Love Travels On A Gravel Road, Faded Love, My Babe or For The Good Times. Simply fantastic ! (Ciscoking)
