THE CONCERT RECORDINGS | LAS VEGAS 1971
Elvis One presents THE CONCERT RECORDINGS! A collection of 4 cd's with soundboard live recordings recorded at the International Hotel in Las Vegas from January and February 1971 plus a few bonus tracks.
Included are all known recordings from January 26 (opening night), 27 (midnight show), 28 (midnight show), 29 (dinner show) and February 23 (closing show).
These season's shows were quite short (due to hotel management) but Elvis is in an enjoyable mood. There are many highlights including great live recordings from 'Sweet Caroline', 'Make The World Go Away', 'Only Believe', 'Can't Help Falling In Love' (dedicated to Hal Wallis), 'The Impossible Dream', 'How Great Thou Art', 'Something', and many others PLUS also some false starts, one-liners and lyric changes.
'Also Sprach Zarathustra' is played for the very first time during this engagement and the first rendition of this magic opening theme is also presented on this set (opening night, January 26.) Bonus tracks are recordings from the January 28 dinner show, the complete Elvis’s Acceptance Speech of the Jaycees Award from January 16, 1971, and a telephone conversation from April 1971.
All recordings for these 4 releases are remastered for optimum sound quality.
Each cd contains a 16-pages booklet with photos and recording information.
And ofcourse these are all limited editions of only 500 copies.
