Press note:
Audionics returns with their first CD of the year, dedicated to the eighth Las Vegas season.
After the worldwide triumph of his "Aloha" benefit show, Elvis returned to a routine that was no longer challenging, two performances a night for a month. And it showed. Still, there were moments of joy. On January 28, "Elvis On Tour," nabbed Golden Globe's Best Documentary Film award. His current single, "Separate Ways," made top 15 in Cash Box. And he closed out the Vegas run with a fabulous performance on February 23, in front of superstars and astronauts.
Here we have a complete recording of that evening, taped by a super-fan. Elvis delivers on a night that would be bass player Jerry Scheff's last for more than two years.
As a bonus, selections from a newly-discovered, February 10 soundboard tape are included. This tape has a bass-heavy mix, possibly as a guide for future Presley bass players.
The closing night audience tape is previously unreleased, taken from a first-generation copy of an original "booth recording," made from a booth close to the stage and PA speakers. It is remarkably superior to all previous editions of this show.
