The new Rock Legends label will release a double CD recorded from the
soundboard. The Elvis Presley Show was a HAPPENING and first Spring
appearance in Sin City since 1956 was no different. The 50s gig was
definitely way above in terms of performance, but nonetheless a flop at
the time. Wrong place, wrong moment ! Tons of water had flown under the
bridge since May 1956, and by 1969 he became and established himself as
the King Of Vegas.
March 1975 wasn't a flop although he had health problems, but still came
in an excellent mood and rich of new studio material recorded about a
week before. He was away from Las Vegas since September 1974, but he
opened this Season with some of his new songs ; And I Love You So, Green
Green Grass Of Home and Fairytale. T-R-O-U-B-L-E would wait up to his
next tour before entering his song list as a regular number, whilst the
odd Shake A Hand and Pieces Of My Life were performed a bit later during
the July 1975 tour. Some material from the strong December 1973 sessions
like Promised Land , It's Midnight and My Boy were incorporated along
some unrehearsed moments to his basic program.
The first CD features the nearly complete pre-show, and on the second CD
the March 22, 1975 Midnight performance along with some bonus tracks
recorded three nights earlier.
The March 22, 1975 MS has been released twice but our source is
definitely from an earlier generation. The very short Joe Orchestra
introduction before the Also Sprach Zarathustra is not on the
aforementioned releases and presence of vocal distortion in Elvis' vocal
is rather smooth and less annoying than it was before.
This new digipack double set will be a very limited edition and first
intended for the fans who didn't have these recordings, or all the ones
wanting the complete happening..
