Rockin' And Lovin' In Las Vegas
Finally, the third and last 2017 Straight Arrow release is a single CD with the previously unreleased August 17, 1972 Las Vegas Dinner show. It was taken from a 1st generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette, made back in the 70s by English super-fan and collector Rex Martin. Once again the sound quality is great! Rex taped many shows and usually, his recordings were of very good sound quality. He also filmed portions of shows with 8mm camera. From his memories: “17th August Dinner and Midnight shows - I went in with a couple of UK friends. After also tipping the waiter $30 more, we got seated right down on the front tables next to the stage. I taped the shows from August 17th to the 22nd and even filmed parts of the concerts.”
The August 17th Dinner show was another great performance by Elvis. Elvis performs a solid and very entertaining shows. His vocals are outstanding. The liner notes are taken from recent Rex Martin August 1972 personal notes. This new release will be presented in a beautiful 3-panel digipak that includes rare photos taken in Las Vegas in August/September 1972. If you liked Straight Arrows previous 1972 releases - then brace yourself, because this is another keeper!
