From the release announcement:
The legendary March 20th, 1974 Memphis, TN concert has been released on
a number of occasions, beginning with RCA's original 1974 LP edit with
artificial applause mixed in. In 1994, a more complete, unofficial
version was issued by " Fort Baxter". It was, however, a patchwork from
several different sources incl. many tracks taken from the original RCA
LP with overdubs. In 1997, "Steamroller Blues" was issued in pristine
quality on "Platinum - A Life In Music". Finally in 2004, BMG's "Follow
That Dream" the Elvis collectors label reissued this show nearly
complete, in a beautiful deluxe package. But was it the definitive
release? For die-hard fans it wasn't, and some viewed it as a letdown.
Parts of the dialogues, introductions and even the false start of "Help
Me" were omitted, and many have complained about the sound and mixing.
Clearly, too much compression and artificial reverb had been applied.
Well, at long last this legendary set is now truly complete, and without
the audio choices made by FTD several years ago. Audionics worked with a
DAT copy of an original, rough mix tape "as recorded at the Coliseum".
Every bit was carefully enhanced in a renowned studio to achieve the
best possible quality for your optimal listening pleasure. We hope that
you enjoy the results.
No remixing. No noise reduction. No edits. No artificial reverb or other
added effects. No heavy compression. Just a pure, raw and natural sound.
The King back in his hometown Memphis, on the 20th anniversary of his
first release "Thatís All Right Mama". Elvis was in great form for this
recording, and now, for the first time, you can enjoy the excellence of
his performance that night in the best-ever sound!
This CD will be released in digipack accompanied by 20-page booklet with
many photos from the concert and an interesting essay.
For many, this concert remains the definitive, mid-70s document of The
Elvis Presley Show. And that's all right. If you are not satisfied with
previous releases of this show, don't miss your chance to obtain this
alternate version as provided by Audionics. A decision you will not
