Softly As I Leave You
Our second new CD is titled "SOFTLY AS I LEAVE YOU" (EPC 2019-22).
The Las Vegas, August 23rd, 1974 Dinner show is previously unreleased. This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape which was never in circulation! Sound is excellent for an off - line source. Unfortunately, the last 3 songs were not recorded. Instead of using a very poor sounding secondary source of the same show (missing the last song "Can't Help Falling In Love," anyway), we have decided to add same songs from the August 23rd, 1974 Midnight show tape which is of similar quality as the August 23rd, 1974 Dinner show. As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.
The playlist is rather typical for August ’74 shows. Among the concert highlights, there are „It's Midnight,“ ”I'm Leavin',” of course ”Softly, As I Leave You”, a great version of “You Gave Me A Mountain” and a funky ”If You Talk In Your Sleep.”
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a collection of great images taken during the August/September 1974 concerts.
If you've enjoyed our previous August 1974 release called „A SONG FOR SHEILA,“ then you are sure to enjoy our forthcoming one even more!
