Raising His Own Bar
|Title:||Raising His Own Bar|
|Recording Type:||Live Audience Recording|
|Date:||August 14, 1969, Dinner Show|
“Raising his own bar” featuring the previously unreleased Dinner Show August 14, 1969 by Elvis Presley. Just recently the “Convair” Label released “Bright Light City” featuring Elvis Presley’s Dinner Show August 12, 1969. With its stunning artwork and of course with a great show, the fans demanded for more. You may now say that you have an old Import CD at home called “The Winner Back In Vegas” also claiming that this release featured the August 14, 1969 Dinner Show but during the years fans and research proved that this information was wrong and it was a compilation of songs from various shows to represent a complete show.
“Convair” has all the information tracked down and they are part of the 20 pages booklet that comes with the new release.
It’s the raw and powerful Elvis who is trying to raise his own bar from show to show. It’s the third week of his first engagement after the Hollywood era and one can feel that he enjoys himself in front of the audience. His jokes and his nervousness can be found during the monologue which often gets referred as “Life Story”. Hear him telling his own career is pure fun. As a special bonus we have included a rare audioclip of Jerry Scheff, bass player in 1969 of the famous TCB Band talking about being on stage with Elvis. This release comes once more with a stunning cover and is again limited to 300 copies only. Get it while you can.
|Concert:||Debut in complete form on silver disc. "The Winner Back In Vegas" was a patchwork of shows from this time. Now we have it undoctored and in its entirety. The sound is okay so far. Nothing should prevent you from adding this great performance to your collection. (Ciscoking)|
