ROCK AND BEAUTY Double CD
Las Vegas August 19 and 24, 1971 Dinner Show
Both the shows are previously unreleased taken directly from a first generation tape. This will be the first of three volumes that SR will publish inside the year with focus on August 1971. The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without doubt in the Las Vegas August 1971 season Elvis still rocks and still beautiful, delivering maybe shorter shows respect the previous summer seasons , but still solid. If Rock is attitude the man still have it. The performance is terrific full and sharp.
Here are presented two unreleased shows from the second week of the season. Both the show are very similar , the track list is minimized and the shows are practically identical, the afternoon presents in more the song I Got a Woman. We are happy and proud of the result we hope you can enjoy too, in spite of the limitation of the audience recording you can listen in a very balanced form all the instruments and Elvis super powerful voice. The shows are fantastic and the track listing is solid , giving us the best of the Season. All the songs are very well performed . Talking of best song is very hard, however you have Proud Mary and Johnny B. Good performed at the top of Elvis’ possibilities, but in the same moment the same happens with classic ballad Love Me Tender here still performed in both the shows or the pop new single I’m Leaving …. This the magic of Elvis in the 1971, a man singing with his own style all styles at the top of his possibilities.
