Press note:

Stronger Than Pride

If we look closely at the first Vegas act of 1972, In spite is personal problems or thanks to these we can see that Elvis concentrates on the music to produce great shows. The in-between song chat and banter have gone and each number is delivered promptly without even a pause for applause. The 'NEW' songs introduced do reflect the mood of the man and for sure the rocking days are over but the rendition of the early seventies repertoire is solid and sung with great ability. The Elvis show is short, 45-50 minutes and is basic with little variation in the tracklist, this theme is continued throughout, always including the new repertoire. Here We present Elvis to the end of the season the closing night the afternoon show.. no surprises in the tracklist but the show is extremely solid and good, almost supernatural if we consider, it comes after one month of daily routine.
The sound is good and powerful it comes directly from the original tape, the mix is rough giving us the possibility to listen very clear all the band in action. This vinyl pressing include a bonus cd, where you have the possibility to listen the same concert + the six ďnewĒ songs from the opening night in this way you can compare too the evolution of Elvisí performing during the season.
The LP 140 vinyl gram is a limited handnumbered release limited to 500 copies. It comes with an inside high quality glossy paper booklet of four LP sized paper.
We hope you can enjoy this our first product in the way to give life to more of his kind in next future. LP February 23 DS unreleased live audience-recording, running time 45,00 minutes.


Sound Sample: Suspicious Minds
Concert: A standard show from these days with no surprises. The debut on silver disc makes it worthwhile for the die-hard collectors, though. Everybody else can skip it, we have enough material from this Vegas season in better sound. (Ciscoking).
