Press note: To be released
soon December 02 ) on the VV label will be their fourth release entitled
"Closing Strong!" featuring both the complete live soundboard recording from
February 23th 1970 Las Vegas Closing show and the complete live audience
recording from Houston on March 01, 1970 Afternoon Show . After the success of
the first three releases We decided: first to improve the product and second,
keeping the same formula to give you more.…..
The producers are aware of the fact that the closing night show, as one of the
best Elvis Presley concerts ever, has been previously released in different
imports. But Here we give you the chance to listen to the show in its entirety
FOR THE FIRST TIME in a double high valued collector vinyl set.
The second show, the Houston incredible March 1st afternoon show, presents Elvis
at the pick of his possibility, although not new to CD collectors, will not have
been heard in this quality before. This release is taken directly from a first
generation tape and has been professionally remastered to a high standard
producing an excellent audio Quality.
The sound quality is far superior to the previous released audience recordings.
Ask your local dealer for samples! . Elvis at Houston is pure dynamite ,
delivering a great performance that compares with the Closing night in terms of
quality, giving to this release the status of “UNIQUE”.
Note: the March 01, 1970 AS was released (by the King Crown Records label ”Elvis
at the Dome“ CD, 2001) from an inferior audience recorded source. This CD has
nothing to do with VV’s tape version.
’Closing strong” is the perfect companion to the previous “Better than Ever”.
The Vegas second season allows Elvis, after paying his debt to the golden past
in the ’69 season, to demonstrate his true abilities. We see the best of Elvis
in songs that will become the fulcrum of the Elvis show until 1972 Here you can
hear the complete opening night. Houston three days later only from the end of
the Vegas season, for Elvis the very first opportunity to face a real audience
from his comeback to live scenes. The result six supernatural shows with record
attendance set in the Saturday evening show…. the rest his history, Here you can
hear the complete March 01 afternoon show. Elvis performed accompanied from the
band only a solid and rough show singing the best of the previous Las Vegas
Season, in spite the short show ( about 44 minutes) and the bad acoustic with
this show as Houston Chronicle review suggest “ELVIS BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE AT
THE DOME” can be reasonably to be included in one of best shows ever!!!

NEVER SOUNDED BETTER!!!! is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 500 COPIES. It
