The Madison label will soon release a double CD set titled " The Elvis Presley
Show - Holding Down The Fort, " featuring the much-heralded Fort Worth, Texas
concert from June 3, 1976. About five years ago Madison issued portions of this
show, unfortunately far from complete and in lesser sound quality. However, this
2006 collection will be taken from a first generation soundboard recording in
excellent sound quality. The recording is not without any flaws as there are
quite a few feedbacks during '' C. C. Rider '', a tape stretch at the end of
side A damaged "Jailhouse Rock," and the recording of "Hound Dog" was stopped
early on. These have been replaced by the same tunes done just one month later
in the same building. However, the incomplete June performances are included as
a bonus for the "soundboard collector" in all of us. And the packaging will
include a 16 page, illustrated booklet with relevant text. But there's more!
For the first time, this " 30th Anniversary Edition " will feature all the music
from the " pre-show, " with Joe Guercio and the Hot Hilton Horns, J.D. Sumner
and the Stamps Quartet, and The Sweet Inspirations. All these performances will
be as presented that night in Fort Worth. Highlights from the first CD include "
When The Saints Go Marching In " and "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the Stamps,
and the Sweet Inspirations energetic vocals on " Philadelphia Freedom, " " Lady
Marmalade " and a medley of Stevie Wonder hits. The stand up comedian Jackie
Kahane's set was not recorded and will not appear on this release.
Elvis' concert itself will feature all the tracks previously released on
Madison's Cajun Tornado, but this time in much better sound quality from the
first generation soundboard recording and in unbroken running order. Some of the
previously unreleased performances will include " If You Love Me (Let Me Know),
" " Heartbreak Hotel, " " Help Me " and many more. Don't miss the dynamic 1976
return of The Elvis Presley Show to Cowtown!!! (September 2009)
