Notes:  Tracks 1 - 14 are from  February 21, Charlotte and tracks 15 - 18 are from February 16 - 1977 , Montgomery .
There are quite a few songs missing from the 21 February show, which almost makes this more of a compilation CD than a concert disc.

The version of "Where No One Stands Alone" is a great one of a rarely performed song. This was one of Elvis' favorite gospel songs, oftenly performed in private at Graceland.
Elvis plays piano on  tracks 15 and 16. (See comments for "Coming On Strong")

The telephone conversation is a strange (and rare) bonus and it lasts over 7 minutes !

The Charlotte songs are in stereo, the Montgomery songs are mono. All songs have terrific fidelity !

First release came with an inlay card with SIAE stamp and was sold in a cardboard package



 

       
  Sound Sample:  Moody Blue  
       
       
  Concert:  The complete 21 February show can be found on the CD "Riot In Charlotte". See comments there.

 Difference:  The first pressing had a card layout, the second pressing a jewelcase layout and the third pressing returns to a card layout.

Difference between the first and the third pressing (card): The first pressing had a slight less blue colored layout and also had this pressing in the cover an loose little page with trackorder and a stamp from italy. The disc has a remark that it was made in Italy.

The second pressing had a better color design, also on the cover backside the red stripe goes not all the way under the word performances. While the first pressing has it complete under the word. The disc had a far better layout (as it looks almost the same) but the trackorder is now better done under eachother also the line "Made In Italy" is gone.

It looks like if the bootlegger has tried to make his own product better, this count the same for the two other card releases that came out the same day (2003): "Spanish Eyes - second pressing" and "Elvis At Full Blast - second pressing".
