Digipak. For the first time released on silver disc,
He deliveries a long show,
practically 60 minutes….respect the classic 45.00 min. of the rest of the Season.
Elvis was very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sang with power and
sensitivity, delivering a solid and heartfelt repertoire like the “new” songs
“Spanish Eyes, Help me and Let Me Be There recent hit from Olivia Newton-John”
and the classic “Trying to Get To You” sang terrifically. At the same time he
introduce the oldie “My Baby Left me” without forget the classic early 70’ songs
like You’ve Lost Than Loving Feeling, Polk Salad Annie and Sweet Caroline. As
you can see from the track list the number of the classic oldies in the show are
significant reduced. This season will be the first with the new agreement ,
Elvis signed two years of contract performed twice at year, but only two weeks
at the time rather than the previous four.
The show is unreleased and complete, Here we present the show directly from a
first generation copy of a privately-recorded 60-minute cassette. The sound was
painstakingly restored for your listening pleasure. The sound quality here is
incredible good, considering it was taped from the audience. Elvis’ voice is
loud and clear, the band sounds very powerful in very good balanced mix with
some great James Burton’ guitar solos, the audience is never too intrusive
giving instead the real feeling of the concert.
|Concert:||A standard show from
these days with no surprises and Elvis being not much talkative. However,
from a musical point of view all was okay and we have highlights like My
Baby Left Me, Trying To Get To You or Let Me Be There. The lack of
interplay with the audience makes the whole affair a bit dry.
