Press announcement:
THE CBS CONCERT RECORDINGS
The complete soundtrack of CBS special, two concert performances - one from June 19,1977 in Omaha, and the second concert from June 21, 1977 in Rapid City.
These two concerts are now available in a deluxe 2-CD set with almost 60 historical tracks. Also included is A beautiful 16-page booklet stuffed with extensive liner notes and relevant photos.
Especially for the Elvis Collectors we include numbered 100% genuine reproductions of the original tickets of both concerts. This is limited to 555 editions only!

Hear Elvis at the piano and many songs performed for the very last time on stage.
With the last and arguably best-performed version of “How Great thou art” and the last versions of “Are you lonesome tonight”, the powerful “Trying To Get To You” and the unusual “Hawaiian Wedding Song”.
With this release it is obvious whatever may have been wrong, Elvis' unique voice never failed him!
In the spring of 1977 CBS-TV expressed an interest in creating a program covering the Elvis Presley Show. After much pre-planning, producers Gary Smith and Dwight Hemion chose the cities of Omaha and Rapid City on the June tour for their primary videotaping locations.
Elvis did not do so well in Omaha, but gave everything he had in Rapid City.

The Monday, October 3, 1977 broadcast, aired about six weeks after Elvis' unexpected death, used most of the second show in their edit.
The RCA soundtrack “ELVIS IN CONCERT” reached *Billboard* U.S. #3 shortly after this airing.
The program would be rerun just once, on Sunday, May 7, 1978, and has never been issued on VHS or DVD.

The Gravelroad team started this project back in 2010 but with the release of “TFC box” it seemed to be a cancelled project. To our surprise their sound didn't match the results we already achieved on these two concerts.
From the various fans that heard the progress samples we've received requests to, please finish it. Thanks to new technical possibilities we could solve certain recording issues that were impossible to solve just a few years ago.
As some insiders already said, this is the best sounding release of these concerts to date! Of course we can say many things, we rather let you be the judge of that!

The CBS Concert Recordings - Elvis Presley Bootleg CD

 

Sound Sample: Hurt (June 19, 1977, Omaha)

My Way (June 21, 1977, Rapid City)
Concert: See comments for "Candid Elvis On Camera" (CD 1)

The Rapid City show on disc 2 is by far better than Omaha. However, the intros are still incomplete there contrary to the Omaha show which is complete from start to finish (except for a few seconds of the 2001 Theme). We have a great 2-CD digipak-layout  and a 16-page booklet filled with many photos and interesting liner notes. It is great to have this material now  packed in one release. Until we get an official FTD release of this stuff this one is the one to seek for. (Ciscoking).
