Not my best work, but thought I'd share anyway. Listening to this Pine Bluff show as I'm writing this. Pretty good show! I dare say on level with the June 75 tour. Things really turned round on this tour, by Jackson he was giving some of his better shows of the year, and in Arkansas he gave some of his best! This show is definitely a 'silver lining' to the 'cloud' that is the summer of '76. I actually prefer this show to many of the October shows

Nice artwork. I looked up the setlist and it looked great! Why do you think this show is better than the October shows? Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the kind words! I find the Pine Bluff shows to be better because they were quite long, and despite Elvis' appearance being better in October, I think he was vocally weaker, his voice seems nasally and unstable which could be caused by the rapid weight loss causing him to feel weak. In Pine Bluff I think his voice was better, obviously it is difficult to get an accurate picture from an AR but I think his voice would be comparable to Jackson a few days before, where he sings pretty well. That's just my two cents anyway

Unfortunately I don't have acces to the Pine Bluff nor the Jackson show, but I do have "Still rocking the nation". I've always liked that show. Elvis is much more energetic compared to the August shows of the same tour. I gave it another listen and I know what you mean, Elvis sounds vocally stronger than in Minneapolis in October for example.

Sure I can have a go, I'm not exactly sure what the dimensions need to be exactly but I'll have a go. And you're more than welcome, I really appreciate that you think my designs are that good!

Hi again @xmascarrol Here's what I whipped up, I had to modify the layout slightly because I realised that the back cover is actually slightly rectangular and not square (I took the measurements from one of my Jewel Case CDs and the spines on that measured up to 6mm) So it should fit in a normal jewel case

Here's my FTD concept for a release covering the final tour, don't normally do back covers but felt I should this time. I feel like the song selections would work well, I picked the best, unique songs from the shows on the final tour (excluding the last 2 shows and the CBS shows) as bonus tracks to help beef out the CDs a little, you know, give them a little more substance (and yes, the track from Lincoln does include the 'excerpt' from Suspicious Minds). The only bonus track that isn't unique is Hurt from Des Moines, but that's only cos I really dig that version :D

Of course the set lists for the 2 shows featured are as of yet unknown, but I went with what I found on the internet which may very well be wrong. Extra bonus tracks could be added to make up for lost content if the set lists are worse than those included. I didn't include tracks from the last 2 shows or the CBS shows because I felt the CBS shows would end up with their own release, and the last two shows would probably go well together if an Indianapolis soundboard ever turns up, plus the ARs we have from both shows are pretty good already.

Hope you like it! (You too Ernst! ;) )

I really am gratefully for what you and Steamroller do when you do these covers and i think they are great I wonder if you could tackle this for me. I saw you do the the Cleveland July cover , did you ever get around to doing a back cover for it. Would love to have one if you have.

My next request if you don't mind is could you do the ones from with the side and back covers if you have time i would be very grateful.

It's been a while!

Quickly modified this from my concept cover I designed a little while back, the intention is for it to go with the new Philly release.

I know the picture isn't from Philly, but it just looks so badass!

Looks like I might be able to listen to the Pine Bluff show very soon with the new FTD! When I saw the announcement, it immediately reminded me of our conversation about this show. I'm eager to listen to it!
