Announcement (March 2017):|
Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' April ’76 tour.
It was short but very good tour, with Tony Brown and Ronnie Tutt replacing Shane Kiester on piano and Larrie Londin on drums.
The Long Beach, April 25th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased. The Seattle, April 26th, 1976 show was first released by Millbranch Music („THE BICENTENNIAL KING VOL. 2“, 2010) from a rather bad, flat sounding tape source.
Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copies of the original audience-recorded cassettes, which were not in circulation previously. Both shows were recorded by the same person. These enjoyable concerts were never before available in good sound quality… until now! Ask your dealer for sound samples.
As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Long Beach (2:30 pm) and Seattle and newspaper reviews of both concerts. Again - it’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!
|Sound Sample:||Polk Salad Annie (April 25, 1976 AS)
Help Me (April 26, 1976 ES)
The Long Beach show features Elvis in high spirits and he definitely enjoyed his time on stage. Probably one of the best concerts from 1976. We have a very interesting set list with songs like Tryin' To Get To You, My Way, Polk Salad Annie, America, Help Me, How Great Thou Art or Hurt. A really good show, I am sure you will like it, too.

The concert from April 26, 1976, ES, was released before on "The Bicentennial King Vol. 2". See comments there.
