Notes:  Enhanced sound quality

Press note:
he new Straight Arrow release “Hot Love In A Long, Cold Winter” contains the St. Petersburg and Columbia 1977 concerts from newly obtained original audience recorded cassettes which both have surprisingly good sound. The Elvis tour in February of that year was affected in various ways by the weather conditions, which sometimes resulted in delays at airports and illness among the musicians and crew members. Presley himself was in less than stellar condition, and complained of a sore throat on some nights. Elvis gained some weight since the last tour, and the manic feel of those final December nights was now gone, but from February 14, he was in good voice for all remaining shows of his tour, and he even included rarities like ‘Release Me’ and ‘Blueberry Hill’.

A large chunk of the February 14 show and 2 tracks from February 18 were released from a soundboard sources, but we feel that these audience recorded tapes makes for a more entertaining and exciting listening experience. Note: The February 18, 1977 show was released in 1992 („ELVIS RELEASE ME IN CONCERT“) by the Peaf label, which was taken from an inferior source.
