A Brand New Cadillac, Honey!

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' April ’76 tour. It was short but very good tour, with Tony Brown and Ronnie Tutt replacing Shane Kiester on piano and Larrie Londin on drums.
The Long Beach, April 25th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased. The Seattle, April 26th, 1976 show was first released by Millbranch Music („THE BICENTENNIAL KING VOL. 2“, 2010) from a rather bad, flat sounding tape source.
Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copies of the original audience-recorded cassettess, which were not in circulation previously. Both shows were recorded by the same person. These enjoyable concerts were never before available in good sound quality… until now! Ask your dealer for sound samples.
As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Long Beach (2:30 pm) and Seattle and newspaper reviews of both concerts. Again - it’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

Note: „A BRAND NEW CADILLAC, HONEY!“ 2CD-set will be released together with „GOT ME WORKIN’ BOSS MAN“ single CD.

Got Me Workin' Boss Man - 40 Years After Vol. 1

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new CD dedicated to Elvis' May ’77 tour. The Macon, June 1st, 1977 show is previously unreleased. This recording was taken directly from a recently found 1st generation copy of an audience-recorded mastertape. This historic concert was never before available in decent sound quality… until now! Ask your dealer for sound samples. Compared with an average show in Baton Rouge, May 31st, Macon concert is surprisingly good. ”Fairytale”, ”My Way” and ”And I Love You So” are performed really well but one highlight stands out, rocking performance of „Big Boss Man“ at the end of show. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 3-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Macon and a newspaper review. If you liked our other May 1977 release “Too Late For Goodbyes” (SA/SP 2016-42-02), we'll bet that you will also love this one. It’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

Packing the Arena

The MxF label will release soon its third special product called “Packing the Arena'' featuring both the shows performed from Elvis in Long Beach CA, Long Beach Arena on April 25, 1976. The 2.30 PM show is previously unreleased, while the 8.30 PM show has been previously released on CD ("California Wave” on Memory Records in 2009). However here is presented in very improved audio-quality so, We believe it is the right time for a proper re-release. After the successful Las Vegas Hilton comeback in December 1975, in spite a little bit overweight but with strong spirit, Elvis is ready to face his long tour activities of 1976 ….... The first tour started in the middle of March , a passable tour but nothing more..the man obviously is afflicted from a lot of problems …personal relationship, recording session and overall self-attitude destructive to life …. everything seems to go wrong .

This second tour confirmed the impression from the March concerts: Elvis was not looking after himself physically and artistically he was at a dead end. In spite the lack of renewal, in the repertoire are still included some strong numbers to make the concerts of a very good quality. In some of the more demanding artistically songs, Elvis builds his show, He is still able to find LIFE singing songs like You Gave a Mountain, America the Beautiful, How Great Thou art and last single Hurt. Without doubt this is the focus of the show and the audience appreciated that, making the concert atmosphere still incredible experience….

Talking about the concerts, both are solid with a few little variation of tracking list..in the evening one, Elvis performs three more songs : The life Anthem ; My Way, the religious ; Help Me and the fifty Rocker ; Blue Suede Shoes. Beside the focus of the show He still able to delivery in decent way, some of his classic rockers, Like Polk Salad Annie, Trying to Get To You and surprisingly in both the shows his best rocker in the seventies; Burning Love.

The sound is very good for an ambient recordings, considering that this kind of recording is coming from a big hall no the intimate Las Vegas showroom… We have on our hands the original mono tapes of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tapes with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

This is the third special Product for this label, this new double set will be housed in a deluxe LARGE FOUR PANELS DIGIPACK (20 cm) , containing a 12 pages of booklet with focus and details on the TOUR shows, including a collection of live photographs, newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 40x40 cm size + an high glossy quality paper art card ( 20x20 cm).

In matter to have a special collector item, the 400 copies will be presented with four different sleeves VARIATION, the same for the poster too. All the copies will come hand numbered and individually sealed and Please remember!! This is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 400 COPIES Like the previous special products, will be presented a 100 copies deluxe edition with EXCLUSIVE CONTENTS.

Wild In Wichita!

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release, our 10th - and 1st one for 2017.

This new CD is titled "Wild In Wichita!“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-10). It was recorded live from the audience in Wichita, Kansas, on December 27th, 1976.

This is a previously unreleased show, taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape. This show was recorded by an American woman and her recording was never in circulation. Until now, the Wichita show was never available in an acceptable sound. The only existing tape was of absolutely horrible quality, perhaps the worst audience recording ever. The EPE label looked for a better tape and succeeded! Although still not great quality, it is a very listenable recording of this wonderful December ’76 tour-opening show!

To prevent possible speculations: many years ago, the official „Follow That Dream“ label reportedly planned a possible soundboard release of the Wichita ’76 show. Unfortunately, this info was based on a mislabeled tape in the FTD vaults. There are no indications that a soundboard recording of this show exists.

Just as all other December '76 tour shows, this concert is excellent! Elvis appeared on stage with the same joy and energy as in Pittsburgh on New Year's Eve. Highlights are "Fairytale", "And I Love You So", a full version of "Early Mornin' Rain", an unbeatable performance of "How Great Thou Art", and "Hurt". One unique performance stands out. It was the very first time that Elvis performed "Unchained Melody", accompanying himself on piano. This premier performance is tentative in parts but that's part of the magic. A great Presley moment!

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak accompanied with a 16-page booklet, filled with a.o. a local newspaper concert review, and special memories by the American fan who taped the show. We are happy that she was willing to share her unique, never before published snapshots, too! All images used for this project were taken in Wichita, KS, December 27, 1976.

August 1973, Elvis Is back for his last summer season..The 1973 was begun in the better way, with the Aloha special at least commercial talking…But the things turned immediately toward the wrong direction..the man had too weight to bear in his human shoulders... But as always for Elvis the music keeps his mind alive and overall active..so the best moments of our man is when He is on the stage..The August 1973 is no exception..>>
The August 14 present Elvis in positive mood , the show is solid and well performed...Elvis deliveries some killer version of My Boy and You Gave Me a Mountain, keeping steady part of the show the two classic Suspicious Minds and Bridge Over Troubled Water and delighting the audience with the sensitive Amazing Grace, like insert in the medley I Got A Woman &Amen and with the Fifties rocker &blues Trouble.

The sound is very good for an ambient recording, We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

Spliced takes - Hollywood Revisited

After last year's releases, fans asked for more and now CMT is proud to present their latest release which promises to be another winner! Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises. Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks. Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes.

We're back in Hollywood for some incredible new splices ! We start off with a "too fast" version of "Flaming Star", just for fun the "End Title" at the end of the cd also has been done in a "too fast" edit, but it sounds pretty good!
One of THE highlights is probably "Adam and Evil" which has a totally new "jungle beat" opening, no new instruments were used, butt purely rough studio snippets to complete an amazing new take out of 5 takes, with new fade out ending! "G.I. Blues" was re-made out of lots of takes, and sounds very new to your ears! And what to think of the "break up" version of "Yoga is As Yoga Does" , lots of funny segments are included in this complete new track. "Moonlight Swim" has the instrumental break on the end, which also sounds very refreshing! "It Won't Be Long" has a longer "bluesy" intro, and was extended for listening pleasure

We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of the 30 tracks by yourself! Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know.. “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released, so this is as close as you can get for a “New” album!
The set comes in a “Deluxe Digipack” with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies! Pre-order your set now, this will be sold out soon!
Tracks:
Flaming Star - Alternate Master (fast) A Cane And A High Starched Collar - Alternate Master * Beyond the Bend - Spliced take 1,2 Shopping Around - Spliced take 6,7,9,10 Adam and Evil - Spliced take 3,5,9,10,16 Amazing new opening jungle version It Wont Be Long - Spliced take 1,2,5 Moonlight Swim - Alternate Master Mama - Alternate Master Frankfort Special (medium tempo)- Spliced take 6,8 Mexico - Spliced take 1,2 * Long Legged Girl - Spliced take 1,2 She's A Machine - Spliced take 4,4,5 G.I.

Sahara Tahoe

AudiRec proudly presents: SAHARA TAHOE – a brandnew CD which will be released February 10, 2017. This time we have decided to release the probably last “listenable” Lake Tahoe “Summer of 1971” recording from an Elvis show. Recorded with non-professional equipment by a female fan in the audience - on July 31st, 1971 at the Dinner Show - it is the first time that this concert is available on a “real” cd.

Elvis stint at Lake Tahoe´s “Sahara Tahoe”-Hotel in the summer of 1971 is unfortunately not documented that good. But anyhow, what seems to be pretty clear from the information we found in our research is that Elvis had a really good time at this first engagement at the (compared to the Las Vegas International Hotel) smaller venue. Rex Martin´s weekly publication for the worldwide Elvis fan base was still young at that time but already delivered first hand information from fans who were at the shows at the “Sahara Tahoe”. So for instance fans were able to read astounding facts like this in Issue´s number 24 and 25: “Elvis sang Happy Birthday to a 12-year old girl and gave her a 4-LP set! He was giving away those gift sets from the stage now and then….” and “On the closing night there was a line of people the length of the hotel just waiting for news of CANCELLATIONS! The showroom only holds 1200 but they squeezed 2000 in that night. They had 3 lines going in. One for Sahara people (persons staying in the hotel), one for people with reservations for the show, and one for people who didn´t have them.”

It is also interesting to learn from those magazines that beside from the “usual” set-list these additional songs have been heard by fans at at least one of the other shows: Treat Me Nice / Old Shep / Sweet Caroline / It´s Impossible / I Was The One / It´s Over / Hawaiian Wedding Song / My Babe / Help Me Make It Through The Night. Issue number 24 tells us also: “He always opened with That´s All Right Mama but changed the order of most of the rest” and “Elvis wore many white jumpsuits, plus a black and red outfit. Red jacket with black trim, black slacks, red shirt, black Onyx ring” and also “He split his pants once and was so embarrassed!”.

Oh yeah, those good old Lake Tahoe days! Well, we hope your spare time allows you to sit back, put your headphones on and listen to the Dinner Show at the “Sahara Tahoe” Hotel from July 31, 1971. It´s Lake Tahoe! It´s the Sahara Tahoe Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested.

*THE ESSENTIAL UNDUBBED MASTERS 1969-1976*

This brand new deluxe 8 cd set is out now.

Recording sessions can be time-consuming.
The process of recording a song or album is often very interesting.
It’s like playing live in the studio, with the difference that if one goofed, they had to do it all over. 
Small corrections could be made but especially erasing something from the tape was a problem.

Later on with the introduction of multitrack recording
equipment it became much easier to alter the recordings. 
Channels could be erased or added and levels could be adjusted for each seperate channel.

Often a track that ends up on an lp or 45 contains overdubs
that were made at a later stage and added to the master take.
Also most of The Elvis masters contain such overdubs.
This set contains the master takes as they were made in the studio, without those overdubs.

It’s as close as it gets to the pure sound of Elvis.

Sit back and enjoy!

The legendary Jungle Room sessions from 1976 have delivered some fine fan favorites like "Moody Blue" "Way Down" & "She Thinks I Still Care". 
Unfortunately these turned out to be Elvis' last recording sessions.
The untimely death of a music legend was news that shocked the world but delivered the pressing plants some overwork. The Demand for Elvis records was suddenly huge. 
Moody Blue was re-released on Blue Vinyl and several reprints followed later and reached up to today 2x platinum.

After the success of the earlier released 2 cd set "3764 ELVIS PRESLEY  BLVD"  the demand for a vinyl version was big.
Now to celebrate the 40th anniversary of these recording sessions from 1976 this beautiful vinyl box is released. 

The set contains 3 high quality vinyl lp's along with a 2 cd set & A FULL COLOUR LP SIZE BOOKLET!
The vinyl is available in two colors: RED & (moody) BLUE. Both sets are very limited to only 200 copies of each color.

Let Me.. Sing Again - delayed

Due to technical reason the new MxF special product , Let Me..Sing Again has been postponed to mid January. We are sorry for the delay but we will improve the product and it feature more bonuses too.
MxF staff

The MxF label will release in January 2017 its new second special product called “Let Me.. Sing Again featuring Elvis' Dinner and Midnight show from August 25th, 1973.
These recordings are taken directly from a first generation of original tapes.
The afternoon show is previously unreleased show, the evening show previously released here is presented in a very improved audio-quality.

August 1973, Elvis Is back for his last summer season..The 1973 was begun in the better way, with the Aloha special at least commercial talking…But the things turned immediately toward the wrong direction..the man had too weight to bear in his human shoulders... But as always for Elvis the music keeps his mind alive and overall active..so the best moments of our man is when He is on the stage..The August 1973 is no exception..>>

The August 25 present Elvis in positive mood , both the shows are solid and well performed...Elvis deliveries some killer version of My Boy and You Gave Me a Mountain, keeping steady part of the show the two classic Suspicious Minds and Bridge Over Troubled Water and delighting the audience with the sensitive The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and rocker&blues latest single Steamroller Blues.

The sound is very good for an ambient recording, We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

Ask your dealer for sound samples.
This is the second very special Product for this label, this new double set will be housed in a deluxe 7”( 20x20 cm ) size DIGIPACK, containing a bonus card with a collection of live photographs newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 60x20 cm size.

Make The World Go Away- From Japan With Love Vol. 2

Recorded live at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, August 8th 1973 Midnight show
Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release, our last one for 2016.
This new CD is titled "Make The World Go Away“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-09).
Recorded live from the audience on the Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1973 M/S, the CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 2“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.

The Las Vegas, August 8th, 1973 Midnight show is previously unreleased. This concert was never before available in good sound, until now! It was taken from a recently obtained first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure.
Elvis opened his 9th Las Vegas season on August 6th, he performed a total of 59 shows, closing on September 3rd - and unlike in February ’73, there were no cancellations. Elvis refreshed his repertoire with several new additions, like “My Boy” or “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and his concerts were longer. Elvis looked and sounded good and he gave an excellent performance on August 8th! In fact, this is a delightful concert and one that is warmly recommended. Elvis sings quite well, and his interplay with the audience is fun to listen to. He sounds in full control, like he was entertaining the crowd from his own living room.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with collection of images taken in August 1973.
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love. We are planning several very interesting CDs in 2017, so stay tuned!

A Vegas Fling With The King

Coming out soon is the 9th volume of Straight Arrow's "From The Booth Tapes“ series. It's 2CD entitled "A Vegas Fling With The King" featuring Elvis' Dinner and Midnight show from February 12th, 1973. These recordings are taken directly from original 'booth recorded' mastertapes.
These concerts showcase Elvis in excellent form! Famous actor Jack Lord and his wife Marie were present for both shows. Elvis called out Jack's name, and Jack stood up. The applause was tremendous. Elvis grinned and said, 'Sit down, Jack, you're getting more applause than I am'.
Both  shows are previously unreleased and 100% complete. The February 12, 1973 D/S is a completely new show, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form. The February 12, 1973 M/S was in circulation in the form of amateur CDRs in very bad sound. It has nothing to do with the top-notch booth quality tape presented here by Straight Arrow. Ask your dealer for sound samples.

As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes Jack Lord's special memory of Elvis and rare photos taken on- and off-stage during Elvis’ 1973 Las Vegas Winter season.

If you liked our previous Las Vegas 1973 releases like “One For The Ladies” (SA/SP 2016-41-02) or “Doin’ The Best I Can” (SA/SP 2015-29-02), we'll bet that you will also love this one!

Spliced Takes - T-R-O-U-B-L-E & SPLICED TAKES “SNOWBIRD

ELVIS PRESLEY – SPLICED TAKES “-T-R-O-U-B-L-E”

Finally a "seventies" album!
CMT is proud to present their latest release which promises to be another winner!

Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises.

Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks.

Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes.

Amazing new takes were created, and this could be THE release for the holiday season:

It starts of with a great edit of "Trouble/Guitar Man" have we heard this before?
"Ill Be There" has a complete different opening, "Pledging My Love" sounds very different, Moody Blue
has the "Supicious Minds" approach with fade in/fade out effect, "The Sound of You Cry" was shortened 
for a chance, and has more power then ever. "Kentucky Rain" runs much longer and listen to the drama in 
Elvis' voice! For the first time a "live-splice" was used and makes "It's Impossible" a great bonus!

We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of these tracks by yourself!
Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know.. “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released,  so this is as close as you can get for a “New” album!
The set comes  in a “Deluxe Digipack” with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies!
Pre-order your set now, this will be sold out soon!

ELVIS PRESLEY – SPLICED TAKES SNOWBIRD

Perfect for the holidays, and another winner here! The best seasonal songs and gospels are included here.
Every year there are some "new" Elvis Christmas Albums.... they all have the same tracks over and over....
how nice to have someting really new now!

One of THE hightlights must be the alternate version of "Winter Wonderland" it has a totally new approach, and 
alternate ending which sound amazing! Another cool edit is the "single" version of "Merry Christmas Baby" without
the overdubbs! "The First Noel" sounds as if it is a RPO version, the original master was edited with the 2008 overdubbed 
version, and makes it more powerful then ever!
As a bonus a "duet" version of "Mama Liked The Roses" is included, Elvis recorded two vocal overdubbs, these are 
combined here to get a very unusual version.

Sunset In Vegas & A Night In Saginaw

After a longer break Touchdown Productions proudly presents two new releases - ‘Sunset In Vegas’ and ’A Night In Saginaw’! The first one presents you the midnight show from August 23, 1974 in Las Vegas for the first time in complete form. The show was first released in 1993 as ‘Vegas Birthday Show’, but it was incomplete and missed three songs from the show. The soundquality is very good for an audience recording. The show itself is a good one. Elvis wasn’t very talkative and was focused on singing and entertaining the audience.

Tracklisting - Sunset In Vegas
See See Rider - I Got A Woman/Amen - Elvis Welcomes The Audience - Love Me - If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - It’s Midnight - Big Boss Man - Fever - Love Me Tender - All Shook Up - The Wonder Of You - I’m Leavin’ - Softly As I Leave You - Hound Dog* - You Gave Me A Mountain - Polk Salad Annie - Band Introductions - If You Talk In Your Sleep - Why Me Lord - Teddy Bear/Don’t Be Cruel* - Happy Birthday - Hawaiian Wedding Song - Let Me Be There - Elvis About His Rings - Can’t Help Falling In Love
* a different source from the same concert had to be used to complete the show.
total runtime: 68.15 min

The second release presents you the show from April 25, 1977 in Saginaw. The concert was released for the first time in 1994. The soundquality is significantly better as Touchdown Productions was able to find a new source. After the very good concert in Ann Arbor the day before, Elvis also offered in Saginaw a very solid show with nice versions of ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, ‘Little Sister’ and a mighty fine version of ‘My Way’.
Also included are six former released songs, which got newly remastered.

MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE: THE COMPLETE WORKS 1953 – 1955

MRS will release a 2CD/100page book compilation titled ‘MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE: THE COMPLETE WORKS 1953 – 1955’ on the 25th November 2016.

The 100-page book chronicles Elvis’ short recording career there, from its humble beginnings (his personal acetate recordings from July 1953 and January 1954) through to the final Sun sessions in 1955. The full and comprehensive text is complemented by rare photographs and unseen pieces of documentation.

The 2CD’s contain the complete archival studio recordings from 1953- 1955:  Elvis’ personal acetates, the Sun masters, along with rare session outtakes. The tracks have been painstakingly remastered and restored.

There are many highlights on this new release. All of the newly remastered tracks now sound much clearer and crisper. For instance, ‘That’s All Right’ has been taken from the ‘Mother’ master of the original Sun 45rpm. Also, for the first time on CD, ‘I Forgot to Remember to Forget’ appears without the false bass RCA added to it in the 1980s when tampering with the master tapes.

The remastering of Elvis’ first acetate recordings – ‘My Happiness’ and ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’ (from July 1953) – has also well exceeded the sound quality ever achieved before on these primitive recordings. Furthermore, on the outtakes of ‘Blue Moon’, the painstaking audio restoration has removed the overload and studio hum present on previous issues, and made them sound much better than ever before.  Indeed, all previous erroneous mastering faults and miscalculations have been rectified on this release, making it the best collection of these seminal recordings thus far.

Too Late For Goodbyes

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' May ’77 tour. The Knoxville, May 20th, 1977 tour opening show is previously unreleased. This recording was taken directly from a recently found original audience-recorded mastertape of excellent sound quality! This historic concert was never before available in decent sound… until now! The Largo, May 22nd, 1977 show was first released by JR Productions (”ELVIS… TONIGHT 8:30 PM“, 1994). 22 years have passed, and it is the right time for a proper re-release. We dug up the original cassette and restored it from scratch. Knoxville is a solid tour opening concert. ”And I Love You So” and ”Hurt” are performed really well but one highlight stands out, an amazing performance of „How Great Thou Art“. Largo was affected by sound problems and Elvis changed the microphone several times. Nevertheless he was in a very good mood, and he gave decent performances of songs like ”Fairytale”, ”Funny How Time Slips Away” and ”My Way”. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes rare photos taken in Knoxville and Largo and a newspaper review of the May 22nd, Largo concert.
It’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!

ABOUT THE SEASON
Extract from the booklet
…..Without any doubt August 1972 is the focus of this year for ELVIS, 64 strong shows for this season, Elvis's voice was great - even richer than in his January/February season! Elvis also looked superb - just as good as in the recent June tour with such HIGH QUALITY SHOWS, looking great , in excellent spirits. After a modest opening night the show will go growing day by day . Seems strange but Elvis keeps his performance to the top for all the season and even this attitude will be growing to the end of the season with shows longer and with a very serious approach to the music, Elvis cared about his songs and each performance was 'fresh' like he was singing' it for the first time, also Elvis being a perfectionist expected a quality performance from everyone during every song! Maybe the present of 200 English fans from the first September give him an extra incentive to deliver some killer shows, maybe only for a while he could to live his dream to be playing in Europe…Without doubt a different kind of approach to the music the normally we can’t find in Vegas ‘ Elvis’ performance (normally also in his earlier season Elvis begins to be tire of Vegas after the second week of the engagement..) he seems to sing the show his life and you know when he wants he can delivery what nobody other singer or rock band can do. In the same time he sings a different kind of songs…….

NOT TOO SWEET, IT BRINGS TO THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!THE DEFINITIVE RELEASE OF THE AUGUST&SEPTEMBER VEGAS SEASON!YOU CAN’T MISS.
Weight of each BOXSET : 1,5 KG
We always tryin’ to give more, We hope of this new release will be a real great update of your Elvis’ live show collection.
FOR THE LAST is easy to understand with the variation present in the boxset will be very hard to get the same copy. A classic for the TRUE collectors.

Spliced takes “Nashville”

After their first “Hollywood” release, CMT is proud to present their latest release which promises to be another winner!
Again the STAR team has done all the edits on this album, and they did an even better job , with lots of excellent edits, and surprises.
Unlike other “import” labels, they truly were able to produce an album using many incomplete takes , to create beautiful new tracks.
Their professional edits will blow you away, and will make you believe these are unreleased takes.
Just listen to the amazing alternate master of “Ain’t That Loving You Baby” re-created from scratch including 17 (!!) splices, this brings you the version used on the 1984 “Reconsider Baby” album, in much better remastered sound.
“Fever” is presented with longer intro and great splices creating a whole new outtake! “Guitar Man” is spliced 5(!) times and also has a new “What’d I Say” ending. “U.S. Male” has an unusual extra verse included which didn’t make it to the record “You son of a b…”
Another highlight must be “I Gotta Know” with alternate Jordanaires backing. “I Need Your Love Tonight” has an additional guitar solo, and the alternate “I’m Yours” also includes the spoken version.

We could go on, but the best thing to do is PRE-ORDER now, and enjoy all of the 30 tracks by yourself! Elvis fans have been spoiled over the years, and they all know.. “the end is near” almost every complete take available has been released, so this is as close as you can get for a “New” album! The set comes in a “Deluxe Digipack” with beautiful artwork, and is strictly limited to 500 copies! Pre-order your set now, this will be sold out soon!
Tracks:
Aint That Loving You Baby - Alternate Master I Need Your Love Tonight Spliced take 6,7,13 I'm Coming Home - Spliced take 5,4 The Girl of My Best Friend - Spliced take 2,3 Never Ending - Spliced take 2,3,3 The Girl Next Door Went A Walkin' - Spliced take 2,3,3,3 Fame and Fortune - Spliced take 4,2 Fountain of Love - Spliced take 4,6 In My Fathers House -Spliced take 3,4,6,7 I Gotta Know - Alternate Master Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers - Spliced take 2,3 Little Sister - Spliced take 7,9 Suspicion -Spliced take 5/wp 3 I'm Yours - Alternate Master Fever - Alternate Master Make Me Know It - Spliced take 2,3 Surrender - Spliced take 3,6 Such A Night - Spliced take 4,1 Are You Lonesome Tonight - Alternate Master Echoes of Love - Spliced take 4,5,3 Judy - Spliced take 2,3,7 You Don't Know Me - - Spliced take 7,10 Guitar Man/What’d I Say - Spliced take 1,5,10,12,10 Stay Away - Spliced take 12,14 Mine - Spliced take - 3,4 Run On - Spliced take 5,4,6 Where No One Stands Alone - Spliced take 3/ wp 3 Crying in the Chapel - Spliced take 2,1,3 You'll Never Walk Alone - Spliced take 4,8,1 U.S. Male - Alternate Master

ROAD TO NOWHERE

Recorded live at the Freedom Hall, Louisville, KY, May 21st, 1977
Expected soon is our new CD release titled ”ROAD TO NOWHERE” (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-07), recorded live from the audience in Louisville, KY, May 21st, 1977. It was the second stop of Elvis’ May 1977 tour and according to Larry Geller, Elvis was in a very bad shape prior the show. Dr. Nick was present in the hotel room, using cold water with ice to make Elvis ready for concert. Listening to this CD, one must say that under those circumstances, Elvis did a remarkably good job! Among the concert highlights are ”That’s All Right“, „You Gave Me A Mountain“ ”Heartbreak Hotel”, ”My Way” and usual showtopper “Hurt“. The May 21st, 1977 show is previously unreleased in any form and it was never available on the collectors circuit in acceptable sound. The producers have been looking for a good sounding recording for long time. Finally they got a solid sounding tape from an Elvis collector in the USA. The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with a positive concert review from the local press and a collection of quite decent images taken on May 21st, 1977 in Louisville, KY.

Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. That's All Right - 05. Love Me - 06. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 07.

THE DEMO ACETATES
WHEN A NEW ELVIS MOVIE WAS CREATED, COLONEL PARKER USED TO ASK
SEVERAL SONGWRITERS TO WRITE SONGS FOR THE MOVIE.
MOSTLY THE COLONEL GAVE THEM A TITLE OR A DESCRIPTION OF THE SCENE AND THE SONGWRTERS UNDERSTOOD WHAT KIND OF A SONG THE COLONEL
NEEDED.

THIS SO CALLED ‘DEMOS’ WERE THEN RECORDED (AT EXPENSES OF THE SONGWRITERS) ON AN ACETATE DISC AND SENDED TO THE COLONEL FOR
APPROVAL. OBVIOUSLY THERE WAS CONCURRENCE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT SONGWRITERS, SOME OF THE SONGS WERE REJECTED, SOME WERE ACTUALLY RECORDED BY ELVIS.

THE ACTUAL DEMOS ARE UNIQUE, MOSTLY THERE WERE ONLY ONE OR TWO
ACETATES MADE AND DUE TO THE MATERIAL (WAX ON A METAL PLATE) THEY WERE VERY FRAGILE AND COULD ONLY BE PLAYED A FEW TIMES.

THIS CD CONTAINS NEWLY DISCOVERED DEMO RECORDINGS, ALL OF THESE
RECORDINGS WERE RECORDED & WRITTEN FOR THE ELVIS MOVIES.

SOME WERE NOT USED FOR OBVIOUS REASONS, SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT GOOD ENOUGH, AND SOME U CAN ACTUALLY IMAGINE ELVIS SINGING THEM.
FUN IN ACAPULCO IS ALMOST A COPY OF THE DEMO, EXCEPT FOR SOME
LYRICS THAT WERE CHANGED DURING THE RECORDING.

MOST OF THESE ACETATES COME FROM THE DOLORES FULLER COLLECTION AND WERE WRITTEN BY HER AND COMPOSE BY BEN WEISSMAN, EXCEPT FOR FUN IN ACAPULCO (BEN WEISMAN/SID WAYNE), NIGHT LIFE (GIANT/BAUME/KAYE), I NEED SOMEBODY TO LEAN ON (POMUS/SHUMAN)& LOVE ON THE ROCKS (TEPPER/BENNETT)

Elvis - Hilton Showroom vol. 5

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 5 – a brandnew CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from March 27, 1975 (Dinner Show) at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. Expect another dynamic Elvis performance from a time period when Elvis was willing to “deliver”!

Here we go with probably the last known recording of a March 75 Elvis Vegas-Show in pretty good, listenable sound. From the reports we have on hand (mainly from our personal archives of original “Elvis News Service Weekly” magazines) it shows that Elvis did just great since the engagement started on March 18. Forrest Duke from the “Las Vegas review Journal” commented “Hilton´s Elvis stronger than ever” and pointed out some new titles in Elvis´ setlist. Even Glen D. Hardin´s Aunt Ann Cummings attended the shows around March 27 and commented positively “Elvis his old self again”. Well, since you are soon able to own the complete performance on CD just judge yourself! Fans of our series know what to expect, not only from listening but also from reading in the usual high quality booklet that is included with first-hand information from what was going on at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas in March of 1975.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the Dinner Show from March 27, 1975. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

One For The Ladies - From the „booth tapes“ Vol. 8

Coming out soon is the 8th volume of Straight Arrow's "From The Booth tapes“ series. It's 2xCD entitled "One For The Ladies" featuring Elvis' Dinner and Midnight show from February 10th 1973. These recordings are taken directly from original 'booth recorded' mastertapes. Both these concerts showcase Elvis in fine form. It was a busy month, with many highs and lows, but thanks to the outstanding success of the ‘Aloha’ special, Elvis' reputation as the ultimate superstar was now firmly cemented. There were a few off-nights due to Elvis having the flu, but he was certainly in good spirits at these two concerts, and he delivered the goods to two packed showrooms. These excellent sound booth recordings capture the excitement of these shows beautifully. The Dinner show is previously unreleased, except for portions of an incomplete soundboard recording with a bass-heavy mix and Elvis' voice in the background (CDs ""Echoes Of Aloha" and "Aloha, Jerry!", both on the Audionics label in 2013). The Midnight show has been previously released on CD ("I'd Like You To Meet Jack Lord" on the Crown label in 2002, and the slightly improved "Turning Up The Heat In Las Vegas" on Memory Records in 2003). However, these older CDs have nothing to do with this Straight Arrow’s excellent "booth tape“ version. Ask your dealer for sound samples.

Tracklist:
CD1 - Saturday, February 10, 1973 Dinner Show:

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me Tender - 05. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me - 06. Steamroller Blues - 07.

Holding His Own In Tahoe!

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a previously unreleased concert from Elvis’ last season in Lake Tahoe. Opinions on the standard of Elvis' last stint in Lake Tahoe often vary. Granted, he did look quite bloated during these shows, and the jumpsuits often looked unflattering, but Elvis was generally in good voice. He delivered his longest ever shows in Tahoe and the King really did seemed to enjoy the intimacy of the showroom, along with the rapport with the fans in attendance there. The May 8th 1976 Midnight Show is, without doubt, one of best concerts from the engagement. With the exception of a messed-up "The Wonder Of You", Elvis performed consistently well at this concert. His delivery, on the whole, was very strong. There’s a nice intimacy to the recording, and his interplay with audience and musicians alike was a true delight. There were also a number of vocally-impressive renditions, one being Elvis’ latest RCA single, “Hurt", which he performed twice. Also Worth a mention were solid performances of "Polk Salad Annie", "My Way", "Tryin' To Get To You" and "Mystery Train / Tiger Man". A water pistol fight at the beginning of the show underlined how much Elvis was enjoying himself. A most interesting concert in rather good sound quality - ask your dealer for sound samples. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes a great deal of information plus Lake Tahoe memorabilia and rare photos taken during the season. If you liked our other Lake Tahoe 1976 releases like “A Triple Threat!” (SA/SP 2011-03-02), we'll bet that you will also love this one!

Atlanta 1975

The MxF label will release soon its new special product called “Atlanta 1975'' featuring the unreleased Show from Atlanta April 30, 1975 plus a bonus DVD with unreleased footage from the same tour.

After the successful Las Vegas Hilton comeback, in spite a little bit overweight but with strong spirit, Elvis is ready to face his first tour of the 1975.. The rock attitude is back the performance is relaxed and superb like many critics noted…, still at the top if his ability he deliveries the classic one hour show as usually, but very intense updating the show with more contemporary repertoire, tossing away mostly of the oldies..There is a freshness that cannot be denied, Elvis was very energetic on stage, bringing back his best seventy rocker like Burning Love and his first That’s All Right Mama…and naturally his karate exercises…introducing his latest rocker single TROUBLE.. He sang with rough power and sensitivity at the same time, delivering a solid short show, with songs like Let Be There recent hit from Olivia Newton-John” and the classic “My Boy” sang terrifically. Elvis finally started to perform again his rocking repertoire appearing to be more focused on the music.

The sound is very good for an ambient recording, considering that this kind of recording is coming from a big hall no the intimate Las Vegas showroom… We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music and for sure you can live the atmosphere of a Elvis’ concert in the seventy.

About the DVD in spite we are talking about amateur footage, we are proud of the work done..after careful remastering work in the matter to delivery the best video to date, including matching audio from the original concert in the way to get a perfect sync between audio and image with speed correction of the original footage we can say that watching this DVD you can have the perfect idea and overall, you can live the Elvis’ show in April 1975 tour…

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 4 – a brandnew CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from March 31, 1975 (Dinner Show) at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. The sound on this new CD is probably the best from all volumes of the series so far. To assure yourself take a listen to the sample!

So here we go with a really interesting show in really good sound. From the reports we have on hand (mainly from our personal archives of original “Elvis News Service Weekly” magazines) it shows that Elvis seemed a bit uncomfortable with the audience on this Monday evening. One fan from the US even commented “Elvis came out rarin' to go and was hit right at the beginning by the coldest, deadest audience we have ever seen in Vegas”. Well, since you now have the complete performance on CD just judge yourself! Fans of our series know what to expect, not only from listening but also from reading in the usual high quality booklet that is included with first-hand information from what was going on at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas in March of 1975.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the show from March 31, 1975. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

THE BEAT IS BACK

Recorded live at the Kemper Arena, Kansas City, MO, April 21st, 1976
Expected soon is our new 2CD set titled ”THE BEAT IS BACK” (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-06), recorded live from the audience in Kansas City, MO, April 21st, 1976.

As per the March 1976 tour, the April tour was a short one - Elvis played just 8 shows in 7 days - but only 3 days after tour closing in Spokane, Elvis started his last-ever season in Lake Tahoe. Most of the April concerts were solid and the shows were longer, with very enjoyable set lists.
Note: Shane Kiester was replaced on piano by Tony Brown and Ronnie Tutt was back on drums, replacing Larrie Londin.
Among the concert highlights are ”Steamroller Blues“, ”Heartbreak Hotel”, ”My Way”, “Hurt“ and ”Burning Love”. There are other great performances, but one single performance stands out in particular - an unique, dramatic rendition of „How Great Thou Art“! Elvis' vocals on this are unbelievable, and this is a serious candidate for 'best live version ever'.

The April 21st, 1976 show is previously unreleased. The producers were looking for good sounding recording for more than 2 years. Finally they got 3 different tapes. The best sounding one was selected for release and small parts were repaired using secondary sources, to make the recording 100 percent complete.
The CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak filled with a glowing concert review from the local press and a collection of cool images taken on April 21st, 1976 in Kansas City, MO. With Ronnie Tutt back in band, the beat was back, too!

Hilton Showroom Volume 3

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 3 – a brandnew CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from December 6, 1975 (Dinner Show). With this CD release Elvis Collectors should now be able to own every single show from Elvis´ second to last Las Vegas engagement on “real” factory-pressed CD´s.

Since his Opening Show on December 2 Elvis did only one show each day. But since this 6th of December, 1975  was a Saturday he did two shows, well known as “Dinner” and “Midnight” Shows. In the past Elvis occasionally had a hard time getting “awake” while going on stage for a Dinner Show. But that was not the case in December of 1975. The show you are able to hear on this CD release is just as good as all the others of this engagement. There is no performance in any of those shows that is not at least “decent”. Still there are fans who don´t like the Elvis of the “later years” but maybe they can make an exception with this engagement since it has too many performance highlights in it to call it mediocre or even bad.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the show from December 6, 1975. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Opening Night At Lake tahoe

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – OPENING NIGHT AT LAKE TAHOE – a brandnew CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from April 30, 1976 (the Opening Show was actually a Dinner Show, there were two performances this day).

Welcome to another AudiRec CD release which takes you back to the spring of 1976. At the time this CD is being released it means that it´s actually kind of a “40th Anniversary”. To be honest, we did not plan to do this just because it is exactly 40 years ago that Elvis played his final Lake Tahoe-Season.

As a matter of fact Elvis was working very hard the whole year of 1976. While in January Elvis had a rather quiet time and even showed some effort to just relax and have fun, early February he was kind of “forced” to record new songs for an album release and early March he was back on tour. We all know from “Elvis History”, that the “King” would have done much better for his health if he would not let himself being that busy but for whatever reason tour after tour was being scheduled… and done. No matter what the critics in many newspapers wrote about his performances – at least they had to admit that Elvis´ popularity (at least all over the USA) was so big that ticket-selling for any upcoming concerts didn´t even need any advertising. Billboard´s Headline in early March 76´ told us “No Ads, But Presley SRO On Current 5-Concert Gig” for the short tour in March. “Elvis plans busy spring” was another headline shortly after this and it said “Like Lightning: Who says Elvis isn´t working hard? Before he stars at the Sahara Tahoe April 30 – May 9, Elvis will be on a concert tour”, then adding the dates and finally conclude “Elvis is still the super superstar”.

So when Elvis came to the beautiful area of Lake Tahoe at the end of April, he most likely was not aware that this would be his last season at the Sahara Tahoe Hotel. The shows have mostly been described by fans as “relaxed” with “lots of surprising moments”, but there were also remarks saying that the “King” looked unhealthy and tired. From what we can hear on the so far released CDs it sure was a mixture of all of this and still we believe that this last engagement had many moments fans do not want to miss.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the show from April 30, 1976. It´s Lake Tahoe! It´s the Sahara Tahoe Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Still Stirring Passions

Out now on the MxF label is “Still Stirring Passions'' featuring the unreleased Vegas March 21, 1975 Dinner Show.
After the problematic October 1974 tour, almost five months of rest and a February hospital visit, Elvis was back to the Hilton a little bit overweight, but stronger respect the previous year and overall in higher spirit. For this reason his performance is relaxed and superb like many critics noted…, still at the top if his ability he deliveries short shows as usually, but very intense updating the show with more contemporary repertoire, tossing away mostly of the oldies..There is a freshness that cannot be denied, Elvis was very energetic on stage, bringing back his best seventy rocker like Burning Love, introducing his latest single Promised land.., He sang with power and sensitivity at the same time, delivering a solid short show, with songs like Let Me Be There recent hit from Olivia Newton-John” and the classic “My Boy” sang terrifically. Unlike previously Elvis didn’t carry any Karate exercises, in this season the sport was never mentioned….but in same time respect the previous two years the rocking spirit was back, in fact Elvis started to perform again his rocking repertoire appearing to be more focused on the music.

The sound is very good for an ambient recording, We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music.

As usually from this label, this new CD will come in a deluxe DIGIPACK, containing a collection of live photographs newspapers clip and memorabilia. We love this show, the rock attitude is back, the “NEW” songs added reflecting the man in the 1975!! in spite the long band introduction, the man is still at the top and Elvis at the top means an unforgettable experience for those who attended the show and for those of us prepared to listen.

Charlie, Bring Me The Request Box!

Elvis’ Summer Festival 1975, August 18th – 20th, Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Label:  Straight Arrow Special Box SA/SB 2016-01-02

Out shortly will be Straight Arrow's 5-CD box release „CHARLIE, BRING ME THE REQUEST BOX!“ (SA/SB 2016-01-02), featuring the complete Elvis Presley August 1975 Summer Festival. It was shortest ever Elvis Las Vegas season – after just 5 concerts, the rest of the season was cancelled due to health issues.

Compared with the previous June/ July 1975 tours, Elvis was a bit heavier and regardless of the problems that were plaguing him at the time, he was in an amicable mood, and his playfulness and warmth resulted in many delightful moments during these shows. Not only that, but he also continued with the ‘request box’ idea which he’d started in Ashville, NC about a month earlier. Fans were able to write their requests on a piece of paper and put them in a request box (actually a champagne bucket). During the shows Elvis would sometimes grab a couple of pieces of paper and select a song from those. This resulted in various true live rarities being performed, such as “Crying In the Chapel”, “Loving You” and “Young And Beautiful”. Some songs were performed for the last time ever: “Green Green Grass Of Home”, “T.R.O.U.B.L.E.” and “Suspicious Minds”. After 2 days it was clear that Elvis was not well enough to fulfill the season. He appeared exhausted and prior to the August 20th, 1975 Midnight show, the decision was made to cancel the rest of the season.

Through the last 25 years, the August 18th-20th, 1975 shows were released on various bootleg CDs of variable quality and completeness. For the last couple of years, the Straight Arrow team has been  looking for the best sounding audience recorded tapes available, to make this new release the ultimate August 1975 ‘Request Shows’ box. In nearly all cases we were able to work from the original cassettes, thus providing us with the best conditions to give you the best release possible. As you can expect from Straight Arrow, each single show was individually restored from scratch -- this was definitely no quick „copy & paste“ job, as by certain other labels! Every second was faithfully enhanced to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself!

Presented with usual Straight Arrow's high standard, every disc is placed in an individual cardboard sleeve and there is a topnotch 16-page booklet too, with many on- and off-stage photos taken in Las Vegas between August 18th and 20th, 1975. To make this release even more definitive, various memorabilia items and historical concert reviews, as published by Rex Martin in „Worldwide Elvis Service News Weekly“ are reprinted as well as various newspaper articles, all related to this season, its cancellation and Elvis’ subsequent hospitalization.

Those five shows sound better than ever and for the first time as complete as possible!  This new release is a labor of love, it is a gem of a release  that you can’t afford to miss!

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – HILTON SHOWROOM VOLUME 2 – a brand new CD which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from December 5, 1975 – only three days after the much acclaimed Opening Show of Elvis´ December Las Vegas 75 Season.

It´s been quite a few months since Elvis´ unexpected break-up season of August 1975 and his fans didn´t know what to expect from his return to the Hilton Showroom, although there were of course high hopes for a triumphant series of concerts. Also there were two things that immediately catches the eyes and the ears of fans and critics once the “King” was back on stage in Las Vegas ‘Hilton Showroom: Elvis was noticeably heavier than ever before in his life and he was singing with a certain quality in his voice which was probably stronger than ever before! It´s easy to say so even though audience recordings are mostly far from perfect when it comes to reveal details in a singer´s voice. Elvis sang great in December of 1975 and once you get to hear songs like “Just Pretend” or “How Great Thou Art”, but also “Trying To Get to You”, with this powerful magic of God´s given talent in Elvis´ Voice you will have to agree.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet (including an extensive fan-review of the show written very shortly after the concert was over) and listen to the show from December 5, 1975. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Elvis Presley in MONO

Elvis Presley in MONO MONO is how most listeners first heard Elvis in the 1950s and 1960s, when it was the predominant audio format. Until 1968, each Elvis album was given a unique MONO and STEREO mix, but Elvis always regarded the MONO mix as primary. This was also true for singles. Up until affordable home STEREO systems in the late 1960s, the record industry always regarded STEREO as secondary, going back to its debut in the late 1950s. MONO singles, EPs and LPs were the standard for retail and radio. Simply put, MONO had all of the sound mixed in a single channel and was meant to be listened to on a turntable with a built-in speaker, a car radio, or a stand-alone AM radio receiver. The goal was to create MONO master takes with as much clarity and power as possible.

When EMI released MONO masters of the Beatles in 2009, they received rave reviews. Left out in the cold were Elvis’ loyal fans. Somehow, SONY didn’t see a reason why they might want the pleasure of listening to his original MONO mixes. So when we first heard about the existence of the original MONO master tapes of Elvis’ hit singles, it was an easy decision to make these available to the fans in a five-disc collection. Elvis' acclaimed MONO tracks have been newly-mastered for CD, using the best digital technology. Hours were dedicated to concentrated listening, fastidiously comparing these master tapes with mint, MONO first pressings. The result is a perfect reproduction of Elvis' original MONO vinyl sound!

ELVIS PRESLEY: THE MONO MASTERS 1960 – 1975**

- All the single sides, including 24 completely UNRELEASED, in their original MONO mix
- LP-size, 480-page hardcover book, containing rare pictures, plus original US and rare foreign single sleeves

Live In Las Vegas

Coming soon from the new label "Universum Productions" in the Elvis world is the almost complete Dinner Show from August 7,1969. This performance was recorded from the audience at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. It has a familiar sound like other already released audience recorded tapes of that period. We would classify it "average"....ask for a sample and we´re sure you weren´t disappointed. The show itself of course is really great.

Tracklist:

1. Intro - Blue Suede Shoes (2:28) 2. Foolin‘ Around (1:07) 3. I Got A Woman (2:19) 4. All Shook Up (1:49) 5. Elvis Welcomes The Audience (1:22) 6. Love Me Tender (2:56) 7.

Elvis Reaches Austin City Limits

Expected soon is our new CD titled ”ELVIS REACHES AUSTIN CITY LIMITS” (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-05), recorded live from the audience in Austin, TX, March 28th, 1977. The 2nd tour of 1977 was cut short due to illness, but some of the concerts were surprisingly good, especially the Abilene show on March 27th. In Austin, Elvis performs another solid and entertaining show. Note: David Briggs was replaced by Bobby Ogdin on electric piano and clavinet. Among the concert highlights are ”You Gave Me A Mountain“, ”Little Sister”, ”Help Me”, “Fever“ and ”Hurt”. Special moment: it was the very last time that Elvis performed “Steamroller Blues” – a really cool performance! The March 28th, 1977 Austin, TX show was previously released 14 years ago by the “Crown” label (a poor sounding CD called “Elvis Slips Into Austin”). Fortunately, the E.P. Collector producers were able to locate the very good sounding original audience recorded master cassette, taped with a recorder equipped with two microphones. The result is a rich and ambient sound - ask for samples! The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with a positive concert review from the local press and a collection of cool images taken on March 28, 1977 in Austin, TX.

Tracklist:

01. Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001 Theme) - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07.

Elvis Live At Del Webb‘s

"The new Touchdown release will be a good sounding audience recording from the midnight show on May 25, 1974 in Lake Tahoe. Also the recording isn’t fully complete, we thought as it is such a fine concert that it deserves a release. For your information we like to add, that the introductions of the musicians, the singers and the orchestra are missing. Also omitted from the recording is “Funny How Time Slips Away”. A different source includes the song, but the soundquality was really bad. So for a better listening experience we decided to not include it. “Big Boss Man” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love” are from the same source as the main part of the show, but both are probably from a lower-generation tape. They were first used for the old bootleg "Big Boss Man In Lake Tahoe" to complete the recording of the Dinner Show on May 24, 1974. Nonetheless the soundquality is nearly the same. Added to the midnight show from May 25, 1974 are three bonus songs from the dinner show on May 24, 1974: “Help Me”, “An American Trilogy” and “I’ll Remember You” (first released on the CD “Big Boss Man At Lake Tahoe”).

A KILLER NITE!

Coming out soon is new Straight Arrow CD titled "A KILLER NITE", featuring the previously unreleased Las Vegas, August 26th, 1972 Dinner show. This recording is taken directly from a recently found original mastertape, as recorded by British super fan Rex Martin. This new source has never been in circulation. Of all the engagements that Elvis performed between 1969 and '76, there is no doubt that his Summer '72 season was one of his finest. Not only that, but he was also operating on a consistently strong level, which is something that you can't even say about the Summer '70 one, which had its fair share of poor shows near the end of the engagement. He was in total command of his art, he looked fantastic and he sang like a bird. Each concert from this engagement is recommended listening for the true Elvis scholar. As usual, our new release is presented in Straight Arrow's standard deluxe digipack, designed with a collection of photos of Elvis, taken during Elvis’ 1972 Las Vegas Summer Festival.

Tracklist:

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. Johnny B. Goode - 04. Until It's Time For You To Go - 05. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me - 06. Love Me Tender - 07. You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling - 08. Polk Salad Annie - 09. Instrumental Intermezzo / Monologue - 10. What Now My Love - 11. Fever - 12. Love Me - 13. Blue Suede Shoes - 14. Heartbreak Hotel - 15. All Shook Up - 16. Little Sister / Get Back - 17. Hound Dog - 18. I’ll Remember You - 19. Walk That Lonesome Road (J. D. Sumner & Stamps) - 20. Suspicious Minds - 21. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 22. My Way - 23. A Big Hunk O' Love - 24. You Gave Me A Mountain - 25. Mystery Train / Tiger Man - 26. Can't Help Falling In Love - 27. Closing Vamp.

February 1974 Closing Show

Out now from the MxF label is “February 1974 Closing Show'' featuring the unreleased Vegas February 09, 1974 Closing Show.

After almost five months of rest, Elvis back to the Hilton in better shape and stronger respect the previous season. For this reason his performance is superb, still at the top if his ability he deliveries short shows, but very intense, there is a freshness that cannot be denied, Elvis was very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sang with power and sensitivity, delivering a solid and heartfelt repertoire like the “new” songs “Spanish Eyes, Help me and Let Me Be There recent hit from Olivia Newton-John” and the classic “Trying to Get To You” sang terrifically. At the same time he still performs a great version of the classic rocker “Johnny B. Good” without forget two classic early 70’ songs like Polk Salad Annie and Sweet Caroline and as you can see from the track list the number of the classic oldies in the show are significant reduced. This season will be the first with the new agreement , Elvis signed two years of contract performed twice a year, but only two weeks at the time rather than the previous four.

The sound is very good for an audience recording, We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music.

As usually from this label, this new CD will come in a deluxe DIGIPACK, containing a collection of live photographs newspapers clip and memorabilia. We love this show, it is clear we are not talking about the rough rocker of early 69/71, the “NEW” songs added to the show are no properly Rockers!! but in spite of some limitations and an evolution of style to a more complete musical range the man is still at the top and Elvis at the top means an unforgettable experience for those who attended the show and for those of us prepared to listen. The sound is very good and in times of continue Soundboard re-release we are glad to give you the possibility to have a release that can combine the GOOD audio quality with the unreleased status ….

Don’t miss it!!!!
We add as bonus for this first release a poster featuring a great live shot from Montgomery, March 06.

Elvis – Hilton Showroom Volume 1

AudiRec proudly presents: Elvis – Hilton Showroom Volume 1 – a brand new CD Set which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from December 8, 1975 – right in the middle of Elvis´ December Las Vegas 75 Season.

AudiRec has by now quite an experience in focusing on the year of 1975. The reason for this is simple – we believe that when Elvis was on stage in 1975 he was almost always focused on the music, and it showed. So when Elvis returned to Las Vegas for the second to last time in December of 1975 he delivered mainly great shows. The one you hear on this release he seemed to be in excellent mood and enjoying himself on stage – actually just like at all the other shows from December 2 to December 15. The people in the Hilton Showroom on that very night loved his performance and from what we can hear on this cd plus several other audience- and soundboard-recordings, the Las Vegas Winter season of ´75 was a really good one.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet (including an extensive fan-review of the show written very shortly after the concert was over) and listen to the show from December 8, 1975. It´s Las Vegas! It´s the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It´s ELVIS! Enjoy!

Last Stint At The International

Our previous release 'Solid As Rock' received a great deal of acclaim from the fans, who praised the quality of Elvis' performance as well as the good audio. Some even stated that we had 'undersold' this release, and that the sound-quality of the recording is better than what was stated in our publicity. We at Straight Arrow believe that self-praise is no praise at all; we prefer to let our product speak for itself, which is also why we have built up a loyal following over the years. We simply deliver the goods, no hype necessary. The Straight Arrow team is always looking for rare, unknown or seemingly lost recordings. Once again, the labels researchers were successful - BOTH Aug. 29, 1971 shows are completely new, even for die-hard Elvis fans. They have never been in circulation - in any form! Unfortunately, the Aug. 29, 1971 M/S was not recorded in its entirety. The cassette recorder was stopped - perhaps accidentally - during „Love Me Tender“ and the last couple of songs are missing.

It is with pleasure that we can now offer you more recordings from 1971. This fine Las Vegas season is still poorly documented, so we know that many fans will be delighted with this release. Elvis delivers the goods with two no-nonsense shows, from an engagement that marks the end of an era. From '69 until this point, Elvis had created so much magic with his shows at the International. Not long after this engagement, the International was sold to the Hilton group. The hotel was renamed, and, oddly enough, some of the magic that was synonymous with Elvis at the International disappeared. From this point onwards, his performances in Vegas became very much a case of 'hit and miss'. Let's go back and touch the past, put the CD in the player and let's enjoy one more dose of the original magic of Elvis at the International.

This release is presented in a de-luxe digipack, filled with rare images taken at the Las Vegas International hotel in August, 1971.

February 1974 Closing Show

The MxF label will release soon a new product called “February 1974 Closing Show'' featuring the unreleased Vegas February 09, 1974 Closing Show.

After almost five months of rest, Elvis back to the Hilton in better shape and stronger respect the previous season. For this reason his performance is superb, still at the top if his ability he deliveries short shows, but very intense, there is a freshness that cannot be denied, Elvis was very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sang with power and sensitivity, delivering a solid and heartfelt repertoire like the “new” songs “Spanish Eyes, Help me and Let Me Be There recent hit from Olivia Newton-John” and the classic “Trying to Get To You” sang terrifically. At the same time he still performs a great version of the classic rocker “Johnny B. Good” without forget two classic early 70’ songs like Polk Salad Annie and Sweet Caroline and as you can see from the track list the number of the classic oldies in the show are significant reduced. This season will be the first with the new agreement , Elvis signed two years of contract performed twice a year, but only two weeks at the time rather than the previous four.

The sound is very good for an audience recording, We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out a simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound balancing the channel and put at the right speed the tape. The result a pretty dynamic tape with a great definition of the background music.

As usually from this label, this new CD will come in a deluxe DIGIPACK, containing a collection of live photographs newspapers clip and memorabilia. We love this show, it is clear we are not talking about the rough rocker of early 69/71, the “NEW” songs added to the show are no properly Rockers!! but in spite of some limitations and an evolution of style to a more complete musical range the man is still at the top and Elvis at the top means an unforgettable experience for those who attended the show and for those of us prepared to listen. The sound is very good and in times of continue Soundboard re-release we are glad to give you the possibility to have a release that can combine the GOOD audio quality with the unreleased status ….

Don’t miss it!!!!
We add as bonus for this first release a poster featuring a great live shot from Montgomery, March 06.
