*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 separate 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!

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.

HEART 'N' SOUL... AND SOME MIGHTY FINE ROCK 'N' ROLL

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another fine release.
From Japan With Love Vol. 1
Recorded live at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, August 8th 1972 Midnight show

Our new CD is titled "Heart 'n' Soul And Some Mighty Fine Rock 'n' Roll“ (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-08)
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1972 M/S, CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 1“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.
The Las Vegas, August 8th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased. This concert was never before available in listenable sound, until now! It was taken from a recently found first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure.
This concert is excellent!! Actually all shows from 1972 Summer Festival are. Highlights are "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", "What Now My Love“, ''Little Sister / Get Back“ and early, humble version of "My Way“.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak accompanied with 8-page booklet, filled with memories written by a Japanese fan who taped the show and met Elvis backstage, and a collection of on- and off-stage images taken in August 1972.
If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as "Elvis Reaches Austin City Limits" or "The Beat Is Back" among others then your sure to enjoy our latest release.
As with all our releases this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy. We are planning a few more interesting CDs taken from those "Japanese“ tapes. So stay tuned!

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.

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.

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…

This is the first very special Product for this label, this new CD&DVD combo will be housed in a deluxe LONG DIGIPACK, containing a 12 pages of booklet with focus and details on the four shows included in the live footage with a collection of live photographs newspapers clips and memorabilia plus a high quality glossy 135 gram paper poster of 50x25 cm size.

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.

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. 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 Very 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 the actual March 1975 Vegas season.

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 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.

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.

Tracklist:

Sunday, August 29, 1971 Dinner Show

Memphis Recording Service will have its first release in 4 years titled ‘ELVIS LIVE IN THE 50’s - THE COMPLETE CONCERT RECORDINGS on February 19th 2016.
This box set is the ultimate tribute to Elvis Presley documenting his shows from the 1950’s. The 3 CD’s represent for the first time ever, the release of the complete collection of archival live concert recordings (including rare interviews and the recently discovered new material) by Elvis Presley in the 1950’s.

All of the 82 tracks included have been painstakingly remastered and restored. Fans who enjoyed previous mastered works of the MRS team such as ‘Such a Night in Pearl Harbor’, ‘The Complete Hayride Archives’ and Boxcar’s remastered works of the Orlando February 1977 concert, are in for a treat. Our restoration techniques have now been applied to the Tupelo shows as well as the Eagles Hall, Frontier and Robinson Auditorium shows. Combined with further works on the Hayride and others shows, the quality of these recordings is now far superior to ever before.

The 172 page book is a chronological photo journey following Elvis from the very first to the very last shows performed in the 1950’s. It contains linear notes that includes every show listing (now updated) and is accompanied by hundreds of photographs many of which are rare and unpublished.

Right Direction In Johnson City

For our last CD "Atlanta Loves Elvis" we selected one of the best Shows from his last Tour in 1976 and for our new CD we will stay in the same Year. This time we decided to take a show from Johnson City from his first Tour in 1976. With "Right Direction In Johnson City" we present you his show from the 19th of March 1976. Again it`s an Audience Recording and the quality is really good for this kind of recordings. With no doubt this show is the best from his first Tour that year and for sure also one of the best of the whole year.

827 Thomas Crown Affair

Coming out soon is new Victrola label CD, called „827 THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR“. The American Sound sessions of ’69 are an iconic marker in Elvis Presley’s career. The Singer Special of ’68 had returned the King to the throne he had vacated for Hollywood for the past decade. He returned to Memphis, where it all began. He was home, he was recharged and in fine form vocally, mentally and physically. Chips Moman presented the songs to Elvis and produced the rhythm sessions with the Memphis Boys; Reggie Young, Tommy Cogbill, Bobby Emmons, Bobby Wood, Mike Leech and Gene Chrisman. A fine stable of musicians who contributed a style which was heavily R&B influenced. This and the fact that Chips had a knack for producing hits is what drew Elvis to American Sound in the first place. Reports from direct sources state that Chips was very much in charge of production. He was the producer, no matter who got credit. Felton Jarvis and Al Pachucki, since they engineered the mixes, also received credit. The tracks on this disc present a warmer, richer sound and mix, than found on previously released albums! Every song presented here is in its original undubbed form, apart from „Gentle On My Mind“ and „I’m Moving On.“ As the American sessions were so important in Elvis’ career, they produced a stream of hits, this CD needs to have a space in your collection. We hope you enjoy this CD as much as we have enjoyed compiling it for you!

Tracklist:
01. Wearin' That Loved On Look 02. Only The Strong Survive 03. I'll Hold You In My Heart 04. Long Black Limousine 05. It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin' 06. I'm Movin' On 07. Power Of My Love 08.

These days, most people think of Elvis' final years as a steady decline until it all ended on August 16, 1977. Overall, that may well be true, but if you look at those years up-close, you will see that things are not as simple and as black & white as that. That viewpoint leaves out the nuances that make the overall picture so much more interesting. See, there were moments of promise, periods where Elvis got his act back together and where it seemed like he was back again and where the future seemed his. As we know now, he would always fall back into his old ways at some point, essentially because the real issues that he was dealing with at the time were never treated, only the symptoms. Those moments of promise must have made it even more frustrating for those around him to see him relapse time and again, thus affirming that the final path of self-destruction was inevitable.

One such period was December 1975. He'd been plagued by personal problems and health issues since July of that year. There were various troubling personal incidents during the July tour which alarmed insiders. Elvis seemed out of control. In August, he had to break off a Las Vegas engagements due to breathing issues and fatigue. The few concerts that he did manage to perform made it perfectly clear that something was seriously wrong. He seemed tired and pained. For the first time, those around him were seriously concerned about his well-being. Rumors began to appear in the press that he was suffering from a life-threatening illness.

Between August and November, Elvis rested and enjoyed himself, seeing movies with friends, riding around Memphis on his bike, dated various women (and yes, Linda Thompson was still his 'official' girlfriend)... At it paid off, to some extent. Unusually, he returned to Las Vegas for a two-week engagement. Traditionally, December is a quiet time in Vegas, but Elvis had no problems filling the showroom night after night. He still looked a bit bloated, but his performances were consistently strong, and far better than they had been in quite a while. He was in good voice, too, and he used it to great effect on the big dramatic songs that he loved performing. Elvis even added several rather interesting songs to his setlist, including the gorgeous 'Just Pretend' from 1970. His rapport with the audience was good, heartwarming even at times. And there were no incidents. Fans that saw Elvis at these shows were relieved. Whatever demons were troubling him earlier this year appeared to be gone now. And even though he was still a bit overweight, it was clear that he was doing better than last August. Perhaps from now on, things would be different. Maybe Elvis had now gotten the message, and no doubt he would make getting his health back together his # 1 priority. Who knows, maybe he would even change the format of his shows a bit... Things had gotten a bit stale and same in the past 2 or 3 years. There had been nights where he seemed barely awake on stage. And maybe he would finally record that rhythm & blues album that he'd been talking about in recent years. Yes, 1976 held a lot of promise for our man.

Well, today we all know what happened in '76. To say that things turned bad again somehow feels like an understatement. It was the year where things got really ugly. Even now, after almost 40 years, it's still painful to see photos and hear recordings from that year. The 'unmaking of Elvis Presley', as Peter Guralnick put it, was now painfully clear to even the casual observer. At this point, he was probably beyond saving... An early grave seemed inevitable. His bodyguards even began to make secret plans about what they would do if Elvis would die on the road. Yup.... Presley's unmaking was ugly.

But, listening to the December '75 engagement, we can still dream about how things might have been. The December 14, 1975 show being a good case-in-point. This isn't even the best show from the audience, and indeed Elvis himself makes a reference to feeling a bit tired from last night's shows - which indeed were excellent. However, he exudes great personal warmth, and his interaction with the audience is just lovely ("... One of us has got to get bigger lips!"). The show is a nice record of the great affection that Elvis felt towards his fans. It was not a typical showbizz thing... Elvis truly loved his fans and his kindness towards them on this recording is heartwarming. Just as importantly, he is in good voice, and he sings especially well on songs like 'And I Love You So', 'Trying To Get To You', a rare-for-the-period 'Until It's Time For You To Go', 'You Gave Me A Mountain', 'Just Pretend', 'Burning Love', 'How Great Thou Art', 'America The Beautiful', 'It's Now Or Never'.... That's a lot of strong performances in one show!

The first release of this show was somewhat problematic due to faulty mastering, but you can now enjoy this splendid show in far better audio: the sound was improved noticeably, and we were also able to repair various defects in the sound, thus resulting in a more pleasing listening experience.

"... but, until then, we'll just pretend...."

Back On Track

Recorded live at the Freedom Hall, Johnson City, TN, March 18th, 1976

Expected soon is our new CD titled ”BACK ON TRACK” (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2015-04), recorded live from the audience in Johnson City, TN, March 18th, 1976. It was the 1st tour of 1976 and some of Elvis’ regular musicians were replaced. The result was a surprisingly fresh, experimental sound, with keyboards and drums more prominent. Elvis performs a solid and entertaining show. Among the concert highlights are ”Let Me Be There”, ”Tryin’ To Get To You”, ”Hawaiian Wedding Song”, the second live performance of ”Hurt”, the national anthem ”America”, ”It’s Now Or Never” and “Burning Love”. Compared with the previously released St. Louis, March 22nd, 1976 tour closer (E.P. Collector, EPC 2013-01) lasting just about 52 minutes, March 17th was perhaps the longest show of the tour with a much stronger setlist, running nearly 80 minutes! As usual, this is a previously unreleased concert, taken from a recently found 1st generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape. For the very first time, this show is available in remarkably good audience recorded sound … and complete! Sonically, this is one of the best audience recordings out there - ask for samples!

The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with cool images taken on March 18, 1976 in Johnson City.

ELVIS’ CHRISTMAS ALBUM - 3D MONO

How to make old mono recordings sound like they were recorded yesterday, while keeping the integrity of the original recording intact. You would think that this is impossible, but thanks to the latest technologies in audio development, this is now a reality. You will not believe your own ears. It's like these 50+ year-old recordings are coming alive again. You will be placed in the studio together with the singer and the musicians, right in the center of where it all happens. You will hear details you never noticed before. You will get a whole new appreciation for these classic recordings.

We have played some recordings to industry insiders, and they were stunned. They simply could not believe that these were not newly-made recordings. One of the industry movers and shakers told us, "This re-recording sounds great!". He simply could not believe it that this was, in fact, the original recording and that nothing had been added. The 3DM technology breathes new life into old mono recordings, giving them a new lease of life, and thus making them accessible for coming generations. The 3DM technology is a real industry game-changer.

For promotion of this new technology, we decided to use "Elvis Presley’ Christmas Album” as our first project. This album was quite controversial, and highly successful, when it was released in 1957. The album showcases Presley at the peak of his abilities, singing classic songs with great warmth and sincerity, while others are performed in the raunchy rock & roll and bluesy style that he was known for.

Believe us, "Santa Claus Is Back In Town" never sounded this powerful! When he sings that he is coming in his big black Cadillac, you better believe it! Elvis Presley is the first artist to be used for promotion of the new 3DM technology. Our first release is essentially made for promotion of the new technology to the music industry, but we have allowed a very small amount of CDs to be made available to the fanbase. The best new technology and the greatest recording artist of all time join hands... and the results will surprise you.

We will do a similar, very limited edition release on the Million Dollar Quartet shortly. This one will place you inside Sun studio on that monumental day, standing next to Carl, Elvis and Jerry... The way this session has come alive is quite a revelation. For the discerning Elvis fans, and audio lovers... This new release of “Elvis Presley’ Christmas Album” will bring you the same excitement that it generated upon its original release in 1957. The album sounds so fresh and vibrant, so alive.... The 3DM technology has finally brought out what Elvis and the musicians wanted you to hear. It will give you a whole new appreciation of what was achieved in the studio back them. ELVIS IS BACK... LIKE NEVER BEFORE.
This will be an Elvis Christmas you won’t forget!

Bicentennial Superstar Vol. 3

We´d like to announce Volume 3 of our very well received series “Bicentennial Superstar”, a brandnew TNT Records´ CD release. It is going to be presented in our usual high quality standard. Out in just 10 days from now it will be a 2 CD set containing two complete shows taken from soundboard recordings. Once more we were able to use the technical power of our friends at “Audionics” – most likely THE premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound. A 16-page booklet containing all the information you need to know regarding the concerts is also included.

This time we paired two rare shows from early June and early September of 1976, both recorded from the soundboard. When Elvis was on Tour in El Paso, Texas on June 2nd he delivered what the fans expected. The show clearly had its moments of excellence and critics were nice enough to call it a typical “Elvis spectacular”. A few months later Elvis played Huntsville, Alabama on September 6. The tour didn´t start very successful but Elvis was able to get in better shape and around September 4 he delivered mostly decent shows until the end of that tour.

Sit back and enjoy experiencing Elvis in the Summer of 76 doing some great renditions of his Concert standards of the time like “Hurt”, “You Gave Me A Mountain”, “Help Me” and “America The Beautiful”!

Solid As Rock

Solid As Rock
Friday, August 27th, 1971 Dinner & Midnight Shows, Las Vegas International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2015-37-02
Liner notes:

Straight Arrow is very pleased to bring you, as a first for the label, two concerts from 1971: The Las Vegas August 27th, 1971 dinner & midnight shows. And what a delight it is to get fresh tapes from this year, and from this season, and in rather decent sound too - a rarity for early Vegas seasons. The August 27th, 1971 Dinner and Midnight Shows are taken directly from an original audience recorded master tape Straight Arrow team is always looking for rare, unknown or seemingly lost recordings. Once again, the labels researchers were successful - the Aug. 27, 1971 D/S is a completely new show, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form!

The Aug. 27, 1971 M/S was previously released from an awful sounding source. This release have nothing to do with Straight Arrow’s independently taped version! It's an added bonus that these shows are in rather pleasing sound, which is somewhat rare for 1971. This is also a year which is still a bit "under the radar", so any new recordings and insights from that year are most welcome.

Elvis' previous engagement there had shown clear signs of his high performing standard slipping, but here it sounds like he's back on track again. Both shows are tight, no-nonsense affairs with Presley in good voice and in strong form. He performs with focus and professionalism, and he sings a fantastic variety of music. It's interesting to note that already in '71, the difference between the dinner and midnight shows was becoming noticeable. Elvis sounds a tad low-key during parts of the dinner show, but he's firing on all cylinders a couple of hours later - the midnight show is truly sensational! This release is presented in a de-luxe double digipack, collection of photos taken in Del Webbs Sahara Tahoe hotel and at the Las Vegas International hotel in July and August, 1971. Some 1971 candid shots have also been added.

At a time when most labels are perfectly happy to keep on reissuing stuff that you already have in your collection, you can at least count on Straight Arrow to go that extra mile and bring you something new. And this fine release is yet another good example of that.

Bright Lights, Big City

From the „booth tapes“ Vol. 7
Thursday, February 20th, 1973 Dinner Show, Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2015-36-02

Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow CD titled "BRIGHT LIGHTS, BIG CITY", featuring the Las Vegas, February 20th, 1973 Dinner show. This recording is taken directly from an original Rex Martin „booth recorded“ mastertape. When Straight Arrow started releasing the Rex Martin tapes a few years ago, they caused quite a sensation in the Elvis world. For years they were known to exist, but here they finally were, in a quality that's rare for off-line recorded tapes. In fact, these tapes are so good sonically, that they can easily match anything that's out there. They are certainly as good as the Rick Rennie tapes and bring us the true joy of Elvis Presley on stage in a way that many sterile / unbalanced soundboards were never able to do. The cassette A-side label is marked „20th Feb. 73 Dinner show“, and on flipside there's „20th Feb. 73 Midnight show.“ To the producers big disappointment, the B-side was completely empty, perhaps recorded over / erased by mistake! So the recording of the 20th February 1973 Midnight show is – very likely – lost forever…

Nevertheless, the Feb. 20th, 1973 D/S is another completely new concert recording, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form, and the sound quality is exceptionally good! Ask your local dealer for samples!

As usual, our new release is presented in Straight Arrow's standard deluxe digipack. Since there is a hand written notice on the cassette label: „Blue Suit / Silver Stars”, the producers assume that Elvis appeared in the „Owl suit“ - the only blue jumpsuit designed with silver stars. For this reason, we have decided to design the digipack with a collection of photos of Elvis wearing the „Owl suit“, as taken in November 1972

Tracklist:
01. Orchestra Intro - 02. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 03. C. C. Rider - 04. I Got A Woman / Amen - 05. Love Me Tender - 06. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me - 07. Steamroller Blues - 08. You Gave Me A Mountain - 09. Fever - 10. Love Me - 11. Blue Suede Shoes - 12. I’m Leavin’ - 13. Hound Dog - 14. What Now My Love - 15. Suspicious Minds - 16. Introductions of singers, musicians, orchestra - 17. Introduction of actor George Montgomery - 18. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear) / Don’t Be Cruel - 19. Can’t Stop Loving You (with false start) - 20.

VV label for his seventh release is proud to present the complete show from August 15th midnight performance of the first Elvis’ historical Vegas season.

The midnight show from August 15th, as presented on this double vinyl set, represents one of the best show of Elvis’ first and maybe best Vegas season, Elvis’ first Vegas act is incredible, like a wild animal free from his cage, Elvis gave life to a memorable first season. Dressed in black tunic, Elvis stepped in the stage shaking, gyrating like nothing was changed in the last 9 years of his absence from the stage, He performed the best of his past hits and the new two singles from the Memphis 1969 sessions. The music is the focus of the season, Elvis appear better than ever, concentrate and strong He delivered a long show with no surprises in the track list respect the season, but pure dynamite from the begin to the end of the show.

This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the first season. We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound and of Elvis, keeping his vocal power up in the central mix and at the same time trying to give a great definition to the background music. The Tape is almost complete, missing a little part of the Life Story dialogue , while we have been able to include Can’t help falling in Love from a different source of the same show in the matter to give to the show the deserved completeness. So enjoy our work and realize: this is one of the best possible audience recording of this season you can find all around! In spite the RCA recording of the last week of the season; here you have the chance to listen to a solid and powerful Elvis in an almost complete show far away from nervousness of an opening night or a professional recording.

As usually We try always to give more release after release at least something different, this new LP comes with an Gatefold SLEEVE , WITH A FEW BEAUTIFUL concert photos giving an unique view. The bonus cd comes from an alternate source , the same used to complete the concert with the song Can’t help Falling in Love, included the folded sleeve.

Next - Stop Fayetteville

Next - Stop Fayetteville

Fayetteville, NC, Cumberland County Memorial, August 3rd, 4th and 5th, 1976 shows

We all have said it once or twice, “You should have been there, it was amazing, and you should have heard it. Wow! Guess what… You can, really? YES!

Graceland Records label managed once again a rare momentum. This time it’s not just one show, but 3 complete and previously unreleased concerts. They were not available in any form – until now!

Rumours lingered about only a few songs he sang on the 3th of August 1976, but nobody heard it since that day. NOTHING was known about these 3 concerts, no recorded evidence, no track listings available, too. Just rumours.

These 3 concerts are definitively rare and also very good, for the hot summer of 1976!

HIGHLIGHTS: ALL 3 CONCERTS!

On August 3rd, Elvis is in good mood and the audience really joins in. Elvis loves it and interacts tremendously! Wow! Best moments of this show: America The Beautiful (with reprised last part), Love Letters, Hawaiian Wedding Song and very rare (unusual for summer of 1976) performance of An American Trilogy!

On 4th, Elvis was looking forward to perform again and he gave a hell of show, playing off the roof. Great moments: And I Love You So, America The Beautiful (with reprised last part) and two full performances of Hurt.

The August 5th was closing show of whole tour and last ever Elvis show in Fayetteville. Elvis makes sure the people from Fayetteville will remember that he was there, giving another fantastic performance. Best songs: America The Beautiful (with reprised ending), Jailhouse Rock, Love Letters and Hurt (with reprised last part).

Speaking about somewhat up & down shows of summer '76, this is certainly Elvis at his best. Those 3 shows are definitely „up” and far from being „down”

These rare audience recordings came from a non fan, who recorded it since he believed it was historical moment. At Graceland Records we are very grateful since these are almost beyond par the best concerts of the 1976 Bicentennial tour, I very good sound !

This special summer set is presented in 3CD-digipack, in slipcase, with great 44-page booklet filled with many rare photos (some are presented for the very first time) of Elvis on stage in Fayetteville.

You can't go wrong with this set. If you know the Graceland Records releases, you’ll will love this !

Burning Hot Tonight

Thursday, August 24, 1972 Dinner Show, Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2015-35-02

Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow single CD titled "BURNING HOT TONIGHT", featuring the Las Vegas, August 24th, 1972 Dinner show. This is a previously unreleased mono audience recording in remarkably good sound. It is taken from a recently found source which has never been in circulation (however, an alternate recording in inferior quality is out there, but this new source is far better quality). Straight Arrow's sound man was able to improve the sound quality noticeably. Ask your local dealer for samples! The dinner show from August 24th, 1972 is another topnotch performance by Elvis. He’s right in the middle of the engagement, with still about two weeks left, but he delivers the goods and puts his soul especially into the power ballads. As usual, this release is presented in Straight Arrow's standard deluxe digipack with photos taken at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel in August/September 1972. It was designed by one of the best graphic artists in the Elvis world.

ONONDAGA Nights

Following the remarkable success of our „From The Rick Rennie Mastertapes“ series, it is time to move on to yet another exciting project. Straight Arrow is pleased to announce this new 2CD set, featuring two concerts from the July/August Bicentennial tour, in topnotch audience recorded quality. It was somewhat problematic tour and especially at the end of July and first days of August, Elvis' voice was affected by some kind of laryngitis. Nevertheless, the two concerts from Onondaga War Memorial Auditorium in Syracuse are examples of two solid Presley concerts, with Presley sounding clear and enthusiastic, and in good voice. Both shows were taken directly from recently found original audience-recorded mastertapes. The July 25th, 1976 show was released in 2002 on a CD called „Stormin’ Syracuse“ from an inferior and incomplete (14 minutes missing!) source. The July 27th show is previously unreleased. Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself!

This special release is presented in a de-luxe double digipack, accompanied by a 20-page booklet filled with many professional photos from July 27th and positive press reviews of both shows. Photos from July 25th are extremely rare (amateurish snapshots only). A couple of them have been added in spite of problematic quality, for historic reasons.

Coming soon from the Rock Legends label is the second volume of '' Las Vegas' Voice '', featuring the complete February 3, 1974 Midnight show. It's not often recordings from Elvis' 10th concert season in Las Vegas were released in such good quality.

The sound quality is excellent and reveal altogether that Elvis was happy to be back in Vegas, especially with his new contract for appearing only two weeks instead of the usual four weeks up to the August 1973 season. Besides the only released soundboard from the January / February Las Vegas season this is certainly one of the best sounding show ever put out from this engagement.

Atlanta Loves Elvis

As 1976 came to an end, there was not much spectacular to find concerning Elvis Presley's career over that year. In spite of well visited concerts and a constant high interest of his fans his live concerts were reaching a low point in summer, which was noticeable at less euphoric feedback's from the press and his fans who were sometimes disappointed by his performance. The following autumn brought an upturn for Elvis. Until the end of the year he managed to turn his low point into his last golden age. His concerts were getting exiting with an Elvis who became more healthy and in shape again. The great mood of the King was showing of in his concerts which made his last tour 1976 to one of the greatest in the 70s. „Touchdown“ presents you his concert from December the 30th 1976 on a new 2 Disc now. Elvis and Atlanta always had a special connection to each other which made concerts in Atlanta even more exiting. Elvis loved Atlanta and Atlanta loved him. An amazing set list and an artist who gave everything for the audience made this show the favorite for many fans. Even though this is just a record from the crowd the quality is amazing and much better than all others known so far what you can hear in the sample. Furthermore this evening Elvis sang and ultra rare and full length „Such A Night“ for his fans.

Elvis Closing Show 1975

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – CLOSING NIGHT 1975 – a brandnew CD Set which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete performance from December 15, 1975 – well known as the “Closing Night” for Elvis´ December Las Vegas 75 Season.

Expectations were high when Elvis returned to Las Vegas in December of 1975. Will the “King” reign again or will he again leave tons of disappointed fans who were waiting for “their” concerts back in August of the same year, only to learn that Elvis had to cancel the main part of his two-week engagements at the Showroom then? To cut it short: Elvis delivered mainly great shows. He seemed to be relaxed and enjoying himself on stage. The fans loved the performances and from what we can hear on several audience recordings and soundboard recordings, too, this Las Vegas Winter season of ´75 was a very good one.

The concert is now being released for the first time in its entirety. The initial release of this show on cd goes back to the early 1990´s and lacks from a couple of missing songs. Furthermore it was even wrongly dated.

Expect a fine, decent 2 CD Set containing a great show and be sure to get your copy at your local dealer! Accompanied by a 16-page booklet with lots of information and pictures from the show itself plus some from the days before this new CD release is - just like the first two releases on AudiRec (the already sold-out titles “Elvis At The Hilton” and “Opening Night 1975”) - also limited to only 300 copies.

The sound quality is excellent and reveal altogether that Elvis was happy to be back in Vegas, especially with his new contract for appearing only two weeks instead of the usual four weeks up to the August 1973 season. Besides the only released soundboard from the January / February Las Vegas season this is certainly one of the best sounding show ever put out from this engagement. Watch out for the second volume with a complete unreleased show from the very same season !

Out now - One Week In August 1972

Out now is the new Rock Legends release '' One Week In August 1972 '' a double CD set. Elvis Kicked out his first Las Vegas August 1972 week with determination and pleasure. He added new songs into his repertoire such as '' What Now My Love '' , '' My Way '' and went back into his post-army days with '' Fever '' who will become a favorite for many fans at that time . The first CD features the opening show of August 4, 1972 recorded from the audience and in great quality for such recordings, certainly one of the best sounding audience from that year. The original tape is missing a few songs and those were replaced with the songs from the first concert of the second night and extra bonus tracks from that dinner show, including his first live version of '' Fever ''. The sound of these audience recordings were remastered from the original recordings for the best quality possible.

The line-up songs of the opening night gave a very different and dynamic performance with '' A Big Hunk 'O Love '' as the second number followed by '' Never Been To Spain ''. '' Mystery Train / Tiger Man '' took the spot of '' Polk Salad Annie '' that night ( not performed ) and the medley part of the show was of great quality and sung with sincerity. His two new ballads were also added and '' My Babe '' made a comeback into the show replacing '' Suspicious Minds '', but unfortunately only for his opening show. '' An American Trilogy '' was the show stopper of this season and often performed before the closing number.

A week later at the August 12, 1972 M.S. was still in control and has changed a bit the line up and went back to what would become his standard, however since his opening he added some songs performed that year like '' For The Good Times '' and '' Until It's Time For You To Go '', a few others just made it back into the show ; Polk Salad Annie, Suspicious Minds, I Got A Woman / Amen and Proud Mary. This second CD features a show of excellent quality and recorded from the soundboard.

Altogether these two performances recorded during the first week of August 1972 in Las Vegas are an excellent demonstration of what would become the rest of the season.

The Man From Memphis

Coming out soon is the 6th and last volume of Straight Arrow's „FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTERTAPES“ series - a double-digipak CD release, called "THE MAN FROM MEMPHIS", featuring the May 13th 3am 1973 and Portland, November 26th, 1976 shows.

Every great story have its beginning and the end. With this special release, we conclude our „Rick Rennie recordings“ series. We are delighted with the good feedback and excellent reviews that this series has received thus far. And it has been a pleasure to give Rick's recordings new life, attention and care that they deserve.

Technically, Lake Tahoe show is one of Rick's finest recordings. Yes we are aware that FTD label released a soundboard of this highly unusual concert back in 2003, but we feel that this tape is very much listenable and definitely more atmospheric, compared with rather sterile soundboard that they put out. Additionally, Rick's recording captured moments from this show that are not on the soundboard, including the reprise of the 2001 Theme and the second Closing vamp.

The Portland '76 show was the last one captured by Rick. A lot had happened in the three years between the shows on this release, but the Portland concert is actually a pretty decent one for the time. Elvis had lost some weight since the previous tour, he was in good voice, and he seemed a little more upbeat at these shows, though he still looked tired in photos.

Without guys like Rick Rennie, we would be missing many interesting pieces of the Elvis story. Rick had the foresight to capture the excitement of Elvis in concert, and his body of work deserves a place in the collection of every serious Elvis scholar.

As with every Straight Arrow’s upgrade, this beautifully designed double-digipak edition is limited to 500 copies. If you have enjoyed previous five volumes of the „FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTER TAPES“ series, you cannot go wrong with our "MAN FROM MEMPHIS" set!

No More Feedbacks ! - Fort Worth, TX June 3, 1976

This concert was released nine (9) years ago as a double CD set titled '' The Elvis Presley Show - Holding Down The Fort '' and featured part of the opening acts on the first CD. The original tape had some damages and omissions, and therefore the show was made complete while using the same songs performed a month later at the same venue. It was well edited and runs as a complete show. It isn't most popular period for Elvis' concert but the two shows recorded in Fort Worth, TX turned out to be rather good at the time. The sound engineer Bruce Jackson was on a lucky and bad day altogether, but Elvis' mood turned the situation into a good one for his best sounding man on tour.

This concert has been unavailable for many years now and no doubts some younger fans, or others who missed it would like to have this now into their collection. It will be a very limited edition and here's your chance to get a copy !!!

Ol' Snake Hips Is In Town!

From „The Rick Rennie master tapes“ Vol. 5

Friday, August 21st, 1970 Dinner & Midnight Shows, Las Vegas International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2015-32-02 Coming out soon is the 5th volume of Straight Arrow's „FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTERTAPES“ series - a double-digipak CD release, called "OL' SNAKE HIPS IS IN TOWN!", featuring the August 21st, 1970 Las Vegas dinner and midnight shows.

Of the six shows that Rick recorded during this engagement, the shows on August 21st, 1970 were his favorite. The shows captured here represent Elvis at his zenith. His enthusiasm for performing live in front of an audience is so obvious, and his powerful charisma shines brighter than ever. Interestingly, he performs 'Tiger Man' as stand-alone versions here, and introduces it as his "second record" in a very matter-of-fact way. He also sings a snatch of the Buck Owens classic 'Crying Time', which really makes you wish that he'd recorded a proper version of it.

The August 21st, 1970 Dinner show was first released in 1998 („FROM VEGAS TO MACON“) and reissued in 2011 („AUGUST RELOADED“). The August 21st, 1970 Midnight show was first released in 2001 („YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVIN' FEELIN'“) and was never re-released - until now.

As with every Straight Arrow’s upgrade, this beautifully designed double-digipak edition is limited to 500 copies. If you enjoyed previous volumes of the „FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTER TAPES“ series, you cannot go wrong with "OL' SNAKE HIPS IS IN TOWN!". If you're a fan who only wants his finest shows - get it. If you're a fan who's not too well -versed on audience recordings - make sure that this one is your first purchase. If you are a collector who knows Straight Arrow and appreciates what the label stands for - then getting this new release is your # 1 priority. Another true gem from the label that cares. Tracklist:

I Am Going To Have To Play The Piano On This

For the first time ever on full cd: - elvis at the piano - out now !!!

From his earliest recordings, Elvis would sit at the studio piano and get in the mood for a session by singing some of the old and great songs. Sometimes he would go to the piano between takes or between songs, perhaps to center himself by returning to his roots. Fans have always greatly enjoyed the survived recordings of Elvis at the piano, although strangely enough a full album of these recordings was never released.

Until now....

Housed in a stunning jewelcase with 8 page full color booklet with great ‘Elvis at the piano’ pics and liner notes, this is a release you simply can’t ignore.
It has a very limited edition of only 300 copies.

In this second day Elvis seems more relaxed and even more focused on the songs….. in spite He skips two more recent tunes like I’m leaving and I’ll Remember You, replacing them with two classic from fifties as Heartbreak hotel and All Shook Up the show sounds better …. On stage is an impressive figure in the Fire jumpsuit, the rocker attitude still intact, the voice great, the atmosphere enormous, the demand terrific, 16.500 lucky people attended at the show.

Elvis Opening Night 1975

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – OPENING NIGHT 1975 – a brandnew CD Set which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete performance from March 18, 1975 – well known as the “Opening Night” for Elvis´ March/April Las Vegas 75 Season.

Elvis hadn´t worked in five months when he came back to Las Vegas in March 1975 and although he carried a lot of uncomfortable weight inside his stage clothing, his spirits were higher than they´d been at the start of a Las Vegas engagement in years. If you take a close look to the setlist(s) of this engagement, it shows that Elvis put in really lots of contemporary songs instead of his own “Oldies”. For instance, Opening Night delivered just two songs from the '50s (“Love Me” and “I Got A Woman”). Compared to setlists from the years before this new one was full of good choices. For us listeners of today it is even more: It's GREAT to hear Elvis doing so many well-performed songs!

Expect a fine, decent CD Set containing a great show and be sure to get your copy at your local dealer! Accompanied by a 16-page booklet with lots of information and pictures from the first couple of shows of the season this new CD release is - just like the first release on AudiRec (the already sold-out 2 CD Set “Elvis At The Hilton) - also limited to only 300 copies.

From Elvis In Murfreesboro

With a little help from our friends at “Audionics” we are able to present another fine CD release by TNT Records – this time it´s the show in Murfreesboro/Tennessee from May 7th 1975. Here we go with a concert (recorded from the soundboard) that has coincidently its 10th year anniversary related to its first release on – you guessed it – Audionics. For this new release the guys from “Audionics” have remastered their 2005 Version and out comes a significantly better sound – you will like it! The concert is COMPLETE and this is rare (if not unique!) for an SB recording from April/May 75.

When Elvis was ready for his April/May 1975 tour it was already clear that it would be another big success in his career. By now the “King” was such an iconic performer that it virtually was a matter of unimportance to his many fans if he sang his usual setlist or just read the names of the local phonebook. No, not really of course. But in some way it was simply astounding how fans – maybe mostly female fans – reacted when Elvis came to town. Already on the second station of the tour Jacksonville Journal Staff Writer Sandy Strickland wrote in her article titled “Elvis Presley (Sigh) Is Here!” that “One woman threatened suicide. Another is fasting in some mystical hope that it will bring the desired results. Secretaries have threatened to put all phones on hold or close down the entire switchboard while they try to catch a glimpse of him” and explained this behavior very simple with “Elvis is in town”.

Take your time and read the full article within the 16 page booklet that accompanies the release. It also has many photos from the concert and the whole tour.

Enjoy Elvis in his last concert from the above mentioned tour. The “Closing Show” can easily be called a fine performance from a seemingly relaxed entertainer. The year of ´75 didn´t look that promising at the very beginning, but with two more soon to follow extremely successful tours all through the country Elvis headed for more fun, as being on stage in front of thousands of fans was more than likely what he just loved. As Joe Esposito, his Road Manager, said once in one of his many interviews: “Elvis Presley loved to be Elvis Presley!”

Bicentennial Superstar Elvis Volume 2

Welcome to TNT Records´ brandnew CD release. Again with a little help from our friends at “Audionics” – most likely THE premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided to release Volume 2 of our very well received series “Bicentennial Superstar”. It is going to be presented in our usual high quality standard. The recording is taken straight from the soundboard and there is a 16-page booklet containing all the information you need to know regarding the concert and the whole tour.

As we are aware from all the information we do have access to these days it was more than clear and also visible that Elvis actually should have cared a lot more for himself than for his fans. Although the “King” at least tried to get back in shape and although he got rid of quite some weight since the last tour in early September ended it was a much too short “Recovery” and Elvis stepped on stage looking not too good, showing a pale face and a not so well fitting haircut (of course we´d be more than happy if it was just for the haircut but it wasn´t). Still the fans were loyal and came in masses. The Colonel also was happy to receive another share of “big money” from touring all through the country. After all Elvis seemed to be an all-time-winner in terms of making money with performing that often in a year. Whatever it really was that kept Elvis doing show after show we still can only guess.

Nevertheless, the shows in October of 76 had their moments. Elvis changed his setlist from the months before slightly and for example put back a more than welcome “Steamroller Blues” into it. He did at least what he had to do: Making his many fans happy. That didn´t necessarily include all the reporters from the local newspapers who sometimes wrote some true words the fans did not want to read. But of course there still weren´t that many really negative reviews of Elvis shows in the press. It was just a matter of time though…. The show we are presenting on this release took place on Oct. 20, so Elvis was right in the middle of the tour. The 12.000 fans in the sold-out Notre Dame University Stadium in South Bend saw Elvis wearing the brightly coloured Flame Suit for the first time on stage. Fortunately this show was recorded from the soundboard in its entirety which is rather rare – there are too many SB´s out there on the fan market that lack from starting with “Love Me” or similar, many also do not have the last song(s) originally recorded. Sit back and enjoy experiencing Elvis in autumn of 76 singing some very good versions of songs like “Steamroller Blues”, “Help Me” and a still strong “America The Beautiful”!

ELVIS: CITY OF ANGELS

Out now: Audionics had release something special. Called „ELVIS: CITY OF ANGELS“ (Audionics 2015-01-2), this release consists of a 170-page hardback book & two CDs, featuring both shows which Elvis performed on May 11th, 1974 at The Forum (Inglewood) in Los Angeles, CA. Audionics is aware that these shows were released before (by the Graceland Records label, 2007 and official Sony/FTD label, 2007). To bring out the ultimate sound quality, Audionics worked with direct transfers of the original mastertapes.

Compared with its previous release, the evening show is vastly superior in sound. It was not taken from the same compact cassette source you have heard on the FTD soundboard release 'Live In L. A.', but comes from an original reel-to-reel soundboard tape transfer! The sound difference is like night & day. The afternoon show has much improved sound too, coming from the original audience recorded mastertape. The sound (although not excellent) is clearer than before and most of disturbing distortion is gone.

In recent years, some younger fans claimed that Elvis' performances in LA were mediocre. Nevertheless, fans who were present always mentioned these were "kick-ass performances". It's worth mentioning that these shows were attended by a few members of the hard-rock band 'Led Zeppelin' as well as by Bill Wyman, the Rolling Stones bass player.

The 170-page book is filled with many brand new photos of great quality (both b/w and colour) and what’s most important, more than 200 images have never before been published anywhere! This special audiovisual set will mark the ultimate release of Elvis Presley's live appearances at the Los Angeles in May ’74. Every second was digitally restored to achieve the best possible result. This is the first-ever Audionics real audio-visual presentation. It’s a special set which deserves a place in any serious Elvis collection!

The man looks pale in front the cameras and no in his best looking although in terrific shape, however in no way is possible to compare him with previous November 1971 tour.

Talking about the show , the show is solid and rough no too long considering a tour concert, we have 53 minutes only, but Elvis worked hard performing 18 songs, including his new single “An American Trilogy.” together his classic best repertoire of Vegas.. Talking of highlight of the show, we can agree with the Florida-Times review, the physical performance of Suspicious minds is surely the best moment of the show…...

This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early Tour. The sound was restored in matter to remove the background noise and preserving Elvis’ voice and trying to achieve best possible results. We have spent hours in the studio over the digital restoration of the sound, to give you the chance to hear it with pleasure.

Elvis '70: Hot To Trot! & Almost Done, Folks!

Elvis '70: Hot To Trot!
From „The Rick Rennie master tapes“ Vol. 4

Coming out soon is the 4th volume of Straight Arrow's „FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTERTAPES“ series - a double-digipak CD release, called "ELVIS ’70: HOT TO TROT!", featuring the August 20th, 1970 Las Vegas dinner and midnight shows. These recordings, last released in January 2004 by Memory records, have not been reissued since then. To achieve the best possible results, Straight Arrow worked from a direct digital transfer of the original 120 minute cassette.

Roughly a week after MGM had left town, Elvis Presley had finally settled on a format for his show that he felt comfortable with and that resonated with his Vegas audiences. He had tried out many different songs during the first two weeks of his engagement: some worked, others didn't. The shows that are included here capture a confident Elvis who at this stage clearly loved performing in Las Vegas. His powerful voice, warm stage personality & cool sense of humor really shine on these recordings, and give the listener a true sense of what it was like to see the man on stage in his prime. Elvis is clearly in his element, singing a well-balanced set that features both the cream of his recent recordings as well as solid versions of his classics. He even jams with the band on brief versions of 'Memphis Tennessee' and 'More'. As with every Straight Arrow’s upgrade, this beautifully designed double-digipack edition is limited to 500 copies. If you enjoyed our previous volumes of the „FROM THE RICK RENNIE MASTER TAPES“ series, you cannot go wrong with " ELVIS ’70: HOT TO TROT!" Ask your local dealer for samples. Newly remastered from the best possible source, these recordings are a real delight for the true Elvis aficionado!

Almost Done, Folks!

Following the remarkable success of our earlier August/September 1973 Las Vegas season releases, Straight Arrow is pleased to announce this new 2CD set, featuring two more previously unreleased shows in topnotch audience recorded quality.

It was the final weekend of Elvis' 1973 Summer Festival, which meant that there was an extra buzz of excitement in and around the Las Vegas Hilton on Saturday 1st September. Elvis pleased his audience with strong renditions of „Steamroller Blues“, „You Gave Me A Mountain“ and „Trouble“. "Bridge Over Troubled Water“ was given the respect it deserved - especially during the Midnight show, when Elvis wasn't satisfied with his rendition and repeated most of the song. He said that when he did something, he liked to get the sound right. Elvis treated fans to his emotive new song, „My Boy“ - a song which was not recorded in studio until December '73. Since Presley Senior was in the audience, Elvis sang one of his father's favourite songs, „The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face“. The grand finale of both concerts was powerhouse „How Great Thou Art“ - with reprised ending. The September 1, 1973 D/S and M/S are previously unreleased. Both shows are taken from 1st generation copies of original audience recorded cassettes, made back in the 70s by English super-fan and collector Rex Martin. Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself! Double digipak is filled with (some previously unpublished!) August 1973 photographs and an eye-witness text written by an English fan, who was there!

Doin’ The Best I Can

Coming out soon on Straight Arrow is the 2CD set „DOIN‘ THE BEST I CAN”, featuring two shows recorded on February 16. Most Elvis experts agree that the „post Aloha“ winter engagement was his weakest up to that point. Perhaps his inner turmoils played a role, but a rather severe throat infection most definitely did. It was so serious that midnight shows on Feb. 13, 14 and 15 ended up getting cancelled and dinner shows were performed against doctors advice. At some of the shows it was clear that the infection seriously hampered his ability to sing. Still, being the professional that he was, he tried to do the best he could. This is also what you will hear on the previously unreleased concerts from this engagement on this new Straight Arrow release. Presented in truly excellent audience-recorded audio, they give us interesting insights of Elvis at work under trying circumstances. His voice is not at its best here, his condition prevents him from firing on all cylinders, but still he’s giving solid and professional shows. And that’s one element that certainly deserves to be acknowledged more than it is today.

The February 16, 1973 concerts are taken directly from original „booth recorded tapes.“ The Feb. 16, 1973 D/S was previously released („A DINNER AT THE HILTON“, 2007 and „I'M A STEAMROLLER BABY“, 2008) from an inferior audience recorded source. These CD have nothing to do with Straight Arrow’s excellent „booth tape“ version! The Feb. 16 1973 M/S is a completely new show, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form! These tapes were rediscovered recently and we believe that you will agree with us that this is another great find. A real must - not just for the hardcore collector. Another quality Straight Arrow release! Tracklist:

Loose As A Goose!

Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow's double-digipak CD release, called "LOOSE AS A GOOSE!", featuring the August 19th, 1970 Las Vegas dinner and midnight shows. These recordings were first released in 1998 („DOUBLE DYNAMITE“ set) and were never re-released - until now.
17 years have passed, and it is the right time for the ultimate release of these special recordings.

To call this new Straight Arrow release „a nice upgrade“ would be like calling the Mona Lisa an „okay“ painting! The label was able to retrieve the first generation Rick Rennie cassettes from the August 19, 1970 dinner & midnight shows (the originals are lost) and then carefully enhanced every second on the tapes. As it turns out, that earlier release of these two show was edited, so this new SA release presents Rick's 1st generations tapes in their complete form for the very first time. To give you an example, the dinner show on „DOUBLE DYNAMITE“ was about 45 mins; now it‘s 56 mins!

Still, one edit remains in the DS recording, the one made by the late Rick Rennie originally. Rick told us about 10 years ago that ‘Love Me Tender’ just went on and on, with Elvis being mostly preoccupied with entertaining a few lucky ladies in the front rows. This went on for almost 15 minutes, and all around him Rick could hear people starting to "boo" Elvis. He felt embarrassed about this moment and edited it from the tape. Interestingly, the label on the tape reads: "Elvis - the booed show. Edited." Even though Elvis’ performance on this night was quite strong overall, you can hear in parts that Rick’s account rings true. Elvis’ off-color jokes receive only polite applause, if even that, and during ‘Polk Salad Annie’, he accidentally falls flat on his face!

But make no mistake about it, even these moments cannot distract from the pure dynamite of Elvis’ vocals & showmanship at the time. Especially on the newer stuff he sings at full throttle. The midnight show is even better: it’s 70 action-packed minutes of Presley at his mightiest, rockinest, lovinest… It’s „Elvis 1970“, and that really says it all for the true fan & connoisseur. Even moreso than the TTWII recordings, these tapes give us a unique insight into Elvis performing live in his element & at the peak of his considerable powers. At the same time, these recordings are significant because they give us the first glimpses of what was to come…

As with every Straight Arrow’s „upgrade“, this beautifully designed double-digipack edition is limited to 500 copies. If you enjoyed „A NEW DECADE, A NEW SOUND“ and „LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE IN PORTLAND“, you will definitely not be disappointed by "LOOSE AS A GOOSE!". These shows never sounded better! Elvis never sounded better!

Elvis: City of Angels

In January 2015, Audionics will release something special. Called „ELVIS: CITY OF ANGELS“ (Audionics 2015-01-2), this release consists of a 120-page hardback book & two CDs, featuring both shows which Elvis performed on May 11th, 1974 at The Forum (Inglewood) in Los Angeles, CA. Audionics is aware that these shows were released before (by the Graceland Records label, 2007 and official Sony/FTD label, 2007). To bring out the ultimate sound quality, Audionics worked with direct transfers of the original mastertapes.

Compared with its previous release, the evening show is vastly superior in sound. It was not taken from the same compact cassette source you have heard on the FTD soundboard release 'Live In L. A.', but comes from an original reel-to-reel soundboard tape transfer! The sound difference is like night & day. The afternoon show has much improved sound too, coming from the original audience recorded mastertape. The sound (although not excellent) is clearer than before and most of the (disturbing) distortion is gone. In recent years, some younger fans claimed that Elvis' performances in LA were mediocre. Nevertheless, fans who were present always mentioned these were "kick-ass performances". It's worth mentioning that these shows were attended by a few members of the hard-rock band 'Led Zeppelin' as well as by Bill Wyman, bass player from The Rolling Stones.

The 120-page book is filled with many brand new photos of great quality (both b/w and colour) and what’s most important, more than 120 images have never before been published anywhere!This special audiovisual set will mark the ultimate release of Elvis Presley's live appearances at the Los Angeles in May ’74. Every second was digitally restored to achieve the best possible result. This is the first-ever Audionics real audio-visual presentation. It’s a special set which deserves a place in any serious Elvis collection!

MEET ME…AT DEL WEBB'S SAHARA TAHOE!

Coming out before holiday season is the final Straight Arrow's single-digipack release of 2014 - "MEET ME… AT DEL WEBB’S SAHARA TAHOE!", featuring May 26th, 1974 Midnight show. While Elvis was alive, many fans dreamt of a chance to meet the man. The best chance that people had to meet him was at the Sahara in Lake Tahoe, where the intimacy of the showroom gave Elvis the possibility to interact with his fans ‘upclose and personal’. Those that were lucky enough to witness the star during one of his shows there in May ’74, witnessed a charismatic performer in full control of his art and his audience.

Originally, the May 26th Midnight was supposed to be closing show of the season, but due to the huge demand, special 3am show on May 27th was added. The show on this release is a real audience pleaser, as he flirts with the girls on the frontrow and sings all the 1974 show favorites with verve. This is a rather good audience recording that gives you a frontrow perspective of this delightful performance. Ask your local dealer for samples! The May 26th, 1974 M/S is a completely new concert even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form. The so called „May 26th, 1974 M/S“ audience recording available on tape/CDR is wrongly dated!

"MEET ME… AT DEL WEBB’S SAHARA TAHOE!" is taken from a first generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette, obtained from a collector in the US and the date was verified through several very credible sources. Every second was digitally restored to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Straight Arrow is taking the opportunity to thank Elvis Presley fans all over the World for their loyalty and continual support. We are doing the best to deliver you interesting collectors releases in good sound and eye catching packaging. We are always looking for previously unknown concert recordings or superior sounding versions, compared to what is available on tapes/CDRs/old CDs. The year 2015 is a special anniversary for us - it marks 10 years since our initial CD release titled „PIECES OF MY LIFE“. We promise you several surprising releases for 2015 – so stay tuned! The Straight Arrow team would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and prosperous, Happy New Year!

Magnetic As Ever

The MxF label will release soon the second volume of “Wild Tiger in Concert'' entitled MAGNETIC AS EVER, featuring the Spokane, April 28, 1973 8.00 PM Show.

The April Tour represent the first tour of the year, Elvis on tour means Elvis at the top of his possibilities. The 1973 is still a rocking Elvis, but without doubt is the year when all the demons come to the surface, maybe everything has to change to remain the same…...The year was begun with the glorious Hawaii TV satellite Show and after a pale useless Vegas season, Elvis recuperated from the fatigue, started the first tour of the year in a different mood … very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sings with power delivering a solid and long show, with the classic repertoire of the 1973 including a incredible “Steaming rolling blues” version, together a sensitive I’ll Remember you and nice super pop I’m Leaving….. On stage is an impressive figure in Fire jumpsuit, the rocker attitude still intact, the voice great, the atmosphere enormous, the demand terrific, 13.000 lucky people attended at the two shows of Spokane.

The show is unreleased almost complete, Johnny B.Goode is missing for the half.. Here we present the show directly from a first generation copy of a privately-recorded 60-minute cassette. The sound was painstakingly restored for your listening pleasure. The sound quality here is incredible good, considering it was taped from the audience. Elvis and overall the band is loud and clear, the sounds is very powerful in very good balanced mix with some great James Burton’ guitar solos, the audience is never too intrusive giving instead the real feeling of the concert.

Like its predecessors, this new release will be presented in a beautiful four panels digipack with a collection of photos taken during the afternoon show. As bonus the first 500 copies will come with a Christmas Card 12x12 cm.
The recording excellent quality and the superb show give to Magnetic As Ever the status of UNIQUE.
Don’t miss it!!!! Track list:

Out Now - 14000 Fans Can’t Be Wrong!

Out now on the VV label is their sixth release entitled "14000 fans Can’t be wrong!" featuring the UNRELEASED complete live audience recording on September 13th 1970 8.30 PM show From Tampa, Florida.. The vinyl will be accompanied from a deluxe digipack cd including the Show plus the almost previous day show from Miami + a bonus glossy PHOTO . After the success of our previous releases We decided: to give you more.….. so we decided to not only bring you an UNRELEASED show with best audio possible , but also an expanded cd in deluxe digipack with practically two shows!!!

“14000 fans can’t be wrong!!!” wants to give you a unique perspective of the man and his music during his first tour in 1970.. This will be the first STEP of a wider project, in fact the producers’ intention is to accompanied this first volume with other unreleased show from Elvis’ 1970 first tour…

Elvis ‘ first tour comes almost immediately after the third Las Vegas season, maybe too soon to give Elvis time to recuperate…from a long and we suspect boring month of concerts in Vegas. The tour was a 8 concerts in 6 different cities. It was a modest tour considering Elvis’ popularity , in fact all the date were an immediately sold out with a wild reaction from the audience. Elvis looked great at the top of his possibility, performing a solid and maybe too short show with the best of the repertoire of the previous month in Vegas with no new songs added.

About the Show, Elvis’ sang the two best singles from the 1969 sessions + plus his last one from the 1970 sessions…I’ve Lost You maybe for the moderate success only, won’t be performed anymore after this tour..In the Ghetto will follow the same destiny …. Talking about of the best song, all the songs a very well performed although sometime no too seriously, overall in the case of a serious one like In The Ghetto…however in “The new song” I’ve Lost You and You’ve Lost the Loving Feeling we find Elvis at his best… In the cd we include together the Tampa show also 30 minutes of Miami Evening show, giving to the listen a wider spectrum about Elvis’ first tour. The Miami show was already released but we have in our hands a straight copy from the original tape, so we decide to add the highlights of the show to complete the bonus cd in the matter to delivery 80 MINUTES OF music.

Both the recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early tour. We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound of Elvis, keeping his vocal power up in the central mix and at the same time trying to give a great definition to the background music.

The LP 140 VINYL GRAM, IT BRINGS TO THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 500 COPIES. It comes with an CLASSIC SLEEVE AS OUR FIRST RELEASE, WITH A FEW BEAUTIFUL SHOTS FORM THE CONCERT giving an unique view. The bonus cd comes with expanded tracklist with a deluxe digipack . A bonus glossy heavy paper A/4 format comes to complete this beautiful package.

We hope you can enjoy this SIXTH product in the way to give life to the next volume soon as possible.

You can place your order at your favorite dealer from now on.

Two New Straight Arrow Announcements

Lightning Strikes Twice In Portland!
From „The Rick Rennie master tapes“ Vol. 2
Wednesday, November 11th, 1970 & Friday, April 27th, 1973, Memorial Coliseum, Portland, OR

Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow's double-digipak CD release, called "LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE IN PORTLAND!", featuring the November 11th, 1970 and April 27th, 1973 Portland shows. These shows may well represent some of best of Elvis Presley live in the 70s. The Nov. 11th, 1970 recording really captures the raw excitement and electricity of those early tours. Elvis delivers a high octane performance that drives the audience in a frenzy. In parts he sounds a bit unfocused, but overall both Elvis and his audience are having such a ball that any criticisms of his performance are nothing more than nitpicking. The April 27, 1973 concert in the same city may well be his best show of the year, and is a serious contender for "Elvis' best concert performance in the 70's". Compared to the '70 show, his performance here is tighter, more focused and far more varied. Elvis is vocally strong and he delivers the goods in a knock-out performance.

Both shows were first released by the Live Archives label (1991) using slightly incomplete and inferior sounding copies of original Rick Rennie tapes. Memory Records issued those shows in 2004 („ON THE ROAD AGAIN“ and „SHINING IN PORTLAND“ CDs). Those Memory Records releases were engineered and mastered using now obsolete hardware and software. 10 years have passed, and it is right time for the ultimate re-release of these special recordings - in a new, crisp, dynamic sound. Straight Arrow’s release of the November 11th, 1970 show appears - for the first time - totally complete. The Opening Vamp and the famous "Elvis has left the building" announcement at the end of show were restored. The 1970 show is taken directly from the original stereo master tape. The 1973 show is taken from better of two existing 1st generation copies made back in 70s (the master tape got lost thru the years). Original tape transfers made in March 2004 have been used. Every second was digitally restored from scratch to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples. As with every Straight Arrow’s release, this beautifully designed double-digipack edition is limited to 500 copies. If you enjoyed „A NEW DECADE, A NEW SOUND“, you will enjoy "LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE IN PORTLAND!" too. These shows never sounded better!

The King Holds Court
Tuesday, August 28, 1973 Dinner Show & Wednesday, August 29, Dinner & Midnight Shows, Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV

Following the remarkable success of our earlier 3CD set "On A Winning Streak", Straight Arrow is pleased to announce another 3CD collection featuring three more unreleased shows from the Summer 1973 engagement in excellent quality audience recorded audio. The three shows are all strong shows, with Elvis vocally strong (much more than in February '73) and delivering a very varied selection of songs at each of the shows. It's clear that he is in his element here, as his entertaining interaction with the audience and his knock-out vocal performances amply demonstrate. The presence of his daughter Lisa Marie inspires Elvis to give his best. These shows are a delight, and especially in this clear vibrant audience recorded audio that gives you a true "you are there" feel, they make for captivating listening. The August 28, 1973 D/S and August 29, 1973 D/S and M/S are previously unreleased. A few highlights from the (previously released) August 28, 1973 M/S were added. All 3 shows are taken from 1st generation copies of original audience recorded cassettes, made back in the 70s by English super-fan Rex Martin. Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself! If you enjoyed the "On A Winning Streak" set, then you will definitely not be disappointed by its sequel, "The King Holds Court"!

Bicentennial Superstar

Welcome to TNT Records´ fourth CD release. Again with a little help from our friends at “Audionics” - probably THE premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided to take a closer look to the extremely busy Elvis in the Summer of 1976. As we all know it was a time when Elvis actually should have cared a lot more for himself than for his fans. Money might also have been some kind of reason to continue restless touring and the quality of his performances were in many cases merely a shadow of the past. Still Elvis´ popularity was tremendous and it seemed so easy to sell out every single show. And so he did on the two nights featured in this 2 CD set.

Show #1 took place on June 30th, and the 16000 fans at the Coliseum in Greensboro absolutely loved Elvis´ show although they experienced that “the pelvis didn´t move quite the way it used to” and that “Elvis Presley is in his forties now” and “has put on some weight in the midsection”. While the fans on the one hand didn´t bother that much regarding Elvis´ weight the press did. Anyhow the reviews were still okay and the reporters finally had to admit that the “Elvis magic” still turns ém on! Thankfully the concert has been recorded from the soundboard and for this kind of recordings it has fantastic sound! Plus it reveals that Elvis delivers at least a decent and entertaining show. Show #2 is from August 31, and by this time Elvis´ health problems were visual even for his most dedicated fans. On this late August/early September tour The “King” had a very bad start with terrible performances in San Antonio, Houston, Mobile and Tuscaloosa. Collectors most likely do own the released CDs with the shows from August 28 and 30 so they can judge for themselves. Elvis “Super-Fan” Brenda Dymock was a witness on every show of the tour and she wrote in a 1976 article which she sent to UK´s Rex Martin: “Well I don´t know what happened with Elvis between Tuscaloosa and Macon but Boy! What a difference. He was in a great mood and really put on a great show.”
Well, whatever Brenda has experienced: Just listen yourself on yet another great sounding soundboard recording!

A New Decade, A New Sound

A New Decade, A New Sound from „Rick Rennie master tapes“ Vol. 1
Tuesday, February 3rd & Thursday, February 5th, 1970 Dinner Shows, Las Vegas International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2014-25-02

Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow's double-digipak CD release "A NEW DECADE, A NEW SOUND", featuring the February 3rd and 5th, 1970 Dinner shows. Looking back at Elvis' final decade of live shows, there are two Las Vegas engagements that stand out: the August '69 one obviously, but certainly also the one in February '70. Whereas the '69 comeback shows were a natural extension of the NBC '68 special with a strong focus on his classic hits, the second engagement From the way he performed these songs, you could tell that he really loved them and genuinely enjoyed the new direction his career was now taking. Most of the oldies were gone from the setlist. It was a very bold move, especially for an artist whose career in the sixties had been marked by boredom and predictability. Released from the chains of the past, Elvis looked and sounded like a man in full control of his career, and he clearly relished the artistic freedom that was now his.

The fact that the music sounded better than before was due in no small part thanks to the two newcomers to the core band; Glen D. Hardin on piano and Bob Lanning on drums. Hailing from Lubbock, Texas, Hardin grew up with Elvis' music, seemed to know all the songs, and was able to contribute with a lot of ideas. Just as importantly, he wrote fresh arrangements for several of the new songs in the show. Elvis loved these arrangements, and Hardin quickly became a highly valued member of the band. Lanning was & is a true no-nonsense rock & roll drummer, who cites Earl Palmer as a main influence. No surprise therefore that he refused to be speeded up by Elvis (or by anyone else, for that matter), and instead focused on laying down a solid groove. In retrospect, this goes a long way in explaining why the February 1970 recordings are musically more solid than other live recordings from the 70s. With that in mind, we would like to dedicate this special collectors' release to messrs. Hardin and Lanning. It’s worth mentioning that Bob Lanning was “found” quite recently after a 45-year absence, and he will be part of a special Elvis show that will be touring Europe in May 2015! And no doubt it'll be a sensation to hear his tight & fearless drumming again after all these years!

The February 3rd, 1970 D/S was previously released by the Memory Records label („HAVE SOME FUN TONIGHT“, 2002). The February 5th, 1970 D/S was released twice from an inferior source and finally by Memory Records („INTERNATIONAL EARTHQUAKE“, 2002). Those Memory Records releases were engineered and mastered using obsolete hardware and software and for some mysterious reason, both shows were even slightly edited.

12 years have passed, and now it‘s time for the ultimate re-release of these special recordings - in a new, crisp, dynamic sound, and with no edits. Straight Arrow’s release of February 3rd and 5th, 1970 Dinner Shows is taken directly from the original tape transfers made in 2001. Every second was digitally restored from scratch to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples.

As every Straight Arrow’s re-release, this beautifully designed double-digipack edition is limited to 500 copies.

New Cover Elvis At The Hilton

AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS AT THE HILTON – a brandnew double-CD Set which will be released shortly. CD 1 includes the complete “3 A.M.” Show while CD 2 includes the complete Dinner Show – both dated September 2, 1973. It was the summer of 1973 - “Labor Day Weekend” brought thousands of visitors to Las Vegas, the “Entertainment Capital City of the World” and Elvis – again – was the most requested performer people wanted to see in Concert. No wonder the Colonel agreed when being asked to schedule a special “3 A.M. Show” on Sunday morning (Sept. 2) to fulfill the many requests for tickets. Elvis was so popular in Vegas, it is hard to compare with any of today´s artists. So it is never a fault to say that Elvis was indeed the “King Of Vegas”. For our first release and with all the technical help we could get from our friends from the “Straight Arrow” Label we were able to obtain two rare shows, both from September 2, 1973. We were given the opportunity to work with the original tapes, recorded at the showroom of the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel by a very well-known and a hundred percent devoted Elvis-Fan. Both shows have been recorded with a tape-recorder brought in secretly and have to be called “typical audience recordings”, though clearly ones which are of real good quality for that type of recordings.

Did you know, that Elvis rode on the back of “Memphis Mafia-Member” Lamar Fike when entering the stage at this early morning show of September 2? He was clearly in a playful and funny mode in the morning hours of this Sunday and it was showing in many parts of this concert. We all know the photos from the Closing Show of this engagement (just one day later) where Elvis did the same (riding on Lamar´s back but this time with a toy monkey on HIS shoulders) – but that was not the first time Elvis did such a “special” start of the show. Anyhow, this is just a small piece of information we collected for the 16-page booklet which accompanies the release. You will read many details regarding those two shows, written down by witnesses just barely one hour after the shows ended – up at their hotel room at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel!
Expect a fine, decent double CD Set and be sure to get your copy at your local dealer! Tracklistings:

Tryin' To Get To Tahoe

Expected soon is new CD entitled ”TRYIN’ TO GET TO TAHOE” (label E.P. Collector, EPC 2014-02) recorded at the Lake Tahoe, NV, May 16, 1974 Opening show. Elvis' spring '74 shows were consistently strong, and the May concerts in Lake Tahoe were no exception. Elvis' shows there were solid and entertaining, and he was in particularly good voice. The set lists offered a wide variety of music, and Elvis' commitment and enthusiasm made these intimate shows very memorable for those who were lucky enough to attend them. The show on this CD has never been released in any form, and this very decent, digitally restored audience recording gives you a unique perspective of what it was like to experience him in person in Lake Tahoe during this engagement.

The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with rare Lake Tahoe, May ’74 cover shot and collection of ”Peacock” images taken in Cleveland show on June 21st, 1974.
Tracks:
01. Opening Vamp / C. C. Rider - 02. medley: I Got A Woman / Amen - 03. Love Me - 04. Tryin' To Get To You - 05. All Shook Up - 06. medley: Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 07. Love Me Tender - 08.

14000 Fans Can’t Be Wrong!

To be released shortly (early November) on the VV label will be their sixth release entitled "14000 fans Can’t be wrong!" featuring the UNRELEASED complete live audience recording on September 13th 1970 8.30 PM show From Tampa, Florida.. The vinyl will be accompanied from a deluxe digipack cd including the Show plus the almost previous day show from Miami + a bonus glossy PHOTO . After the success of our previous releases We decided: to give you more.….. so we decided to not only bring you an UNRELEASED show with best audio possible , but also an expanded cd in deluxe digipack with practically two shows!!!

“14000 fans can’t be wrong!!!” wants to give you a unique perspective of the man and his music during his first tour in 1970.. This will be the first STEP of a wider project, in fact the producers’ intention is to accompanied this first volume with other unreleased show from Elvis’ 1970 first tour…

Elvis ‘ first tour comes almost immediately after the third Las Vegas season, maybe too soon to give Elvis time to recuperate…from a long and we suspect boring month of concerts in Vegas. The tour was a 8 concerts in 6 different cities. It was a modest tour considering Elvis’ popularity , in fact all the date were an immediately sold out with a wild reaction from the audience. Elvis looked great at the top of his possibility, performing a solid and maybe too short show with the best of the repertoire of the previous month in Vegas with no new songs added.

About the Show, Elvis’ sang the two best singles from the 1969 sessions + plus his last one from the 1970 sessions…I’ve Lost You maybe for the moderate success only, won’t be performed anymore after this tour..In the Ghetto will follow the same destiny …. Talking about of the best song, all the songs a very well performed although sometime no too seriously, overall in the case of a serious one like In The Ghetto…however in “The new song” I’ve Lost You and You’ve Lost the Loving Feeling we find Elvis at his best… In the cd we include together the Tampa show also 30 minutes of Miami Evening show, giving to the listen a wider spectrum about Elvis’ first tour. The Miami show was already released but we have in our hands a straight copy from the original tape, so we decide to add the highlights of the show to complete the bonus cd in the matter to delivery 80 MINUTES OF music.

Both the recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early tour. We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound of Elvis, keeping his vocal power up in the central mix and at the same time trying to give a great definition to the background music.

The LP 140 VINYL GRAM, IT BRINGS TO THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 500 COPIES. It comes with an CLASSIC SLEEVE AS OUR FIRST RELEASE, WITH A FEW BEAUTIFUL SHOTS FORM THE CONCERT giving an unique view. The bonus cd comes with expanded tracklist with a deluxe digipack . A bonus glossy heavy paper A/4 format comes to complete this beautiful package.

We hope you can enjoy this SIXTH product in the way to give life to the next volume soon as possible.

You can place your order at your favorite dealer from now on.

Living the Pain Out Now

Out now is a new release from the "SR" label is titled "Living the Pain" and will feature the unreleased show from Las Vegas February 21, 1972.

As everybody knows SR concentrates it's work on early 70's live period of Elvis' activity, trying to produce always unreleased shows with Elvis at the top of his possibilities. With the new release, we are proud to present the complete show from February 21th midnight show,a rare show from a Vegas winter season always poor of official and unofficial releases.. Elvis' love of singing is clear in this tape and we are glad to give you the opportunity to listen to it.

The midnight show from February 21th, as presented on this CD, represents just one of the best shows of the season, If we look closely at the first Vegas act of 1972 we can see that Elvis concentrates on the music to produce great shows.

The 'NEW' songs introduced do reflect the mood of the man and for sure the rocking days are over but the rendition of the early seventies repertoire is solid and sung with great ability.

Talking of these new additions we see some great songs, representative of his life from this stage on. Naturally we are referring to songs such as 'You Gave Me A Mountain' which has an autobiographical theme of a man who no singing the pain, but LIVING IT and 'An American Trilogy' which demonstrates his personal beliefs and patriotic views. Elvis also worked hard to promote his new single 'Until It's Time For You To Go.' Here are also included rare performance of Help Me Make It Through The Night together the classic Bridge Over Troubled Water..

This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early season. The sound was restored in a studio to achieve best possible results. We have spent hours in the studio over the digital restoration of the sound, to achieve the best possible results and to give you the chance to hear it with pleasure.

Adios Lincoln & Rattling Plates, Aces'n'Eights

Here a press release from Straight Arrow:

Adios Lincoln
Monday, June 20, 1977,8:30 pm, Lincoln, NE, Pershing Municipal Auditorium.
Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2014-23-02
Most of Elvis’ musicians prefer not to talk about Elvis’ final tours, but whenever they do, they usually agree that final tour was one that should have never been undertaken. It was simply one tour too many. At this stage it was impossible to hide the fact that Elvis was in serious problems.
In any case, the Lincoln concert is one of the finest shows from that last tour. Elvis sounds much better than in Omaha the day before. Surprises include a well-sung ‘Help Me’ and arguably the best ever version of ‘Unchained Melody’, which for the first and only time was performed before the band introductions. Interestingly, and completely unknown until now, is that Elvis asks J.D. Sumner and the Stamps to perform 'Walk That Lonesome Road' during the band intros, which is very unusual for the time frame.
The June 20, 1977 show was first issued on CD in 2004 („ELVIS ROCKS LINCOLN“). This sloppy edition was taken from an incomplete source, missing 17 minutes. For the first time Straight Arrow offer this concert complete. Using two independent original audience recored tapes, Straight Arrow's sound engineer was able to restore all 73 minutes of Lincoln concert.
This new CD edition is limited to 500 copies. Do not miss one of the best shows from Elvis Presley final tour!

Rattling Plates, Aces'n'Eights (From „booth tapes“ Vol. 5)

Friday, August 24, 1973 Dinner Show, Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas, NV Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2014-24-02 Liner notes: Imagine being a singer, and really putting your heart into a song. At the same time, your audience is having dinner, and some of them plainly don’t give a fuck about you or your singing. They are talking loudly, making noises with their plates, smoking one cigarette after another… Doesn’t sound very enticing, does it?

By 1973, it was clear that Elvis’ Las Vegas shows had a negative effect on the singer. But even at this stage, he was still impressive as a singer and a performer, and especially on those nights where he really turned on the power, there was nobody like him in Vegas -- or anywhere else, for that matter.
The August 24th, 1973 dinner show is unreleased in any form and was sourced from an original, excellent sounding „booth“ tape. What is perhaps most surprising, is that Elvis was still quite focused three weeks into the engagement. In earlier years, the standard had sometimes slipped a bit in the third week, even as early as August ’70! Now he delivers a strong show, with ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ and ‘Big Hunk O’ Love’ being the show highlights. ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ was not a regular during this season up to this point, but he delights the audience with a snappy version of his first million seller. And who knows, at this stage he may well have concluded that he’d found his own ‘Heartbreak Hotel’…

This show was rediscovered recently and we believe that you will agree with us that this is another great find. A real must - not just for the hardcore collector. Another quality Straight Arrow release!

Tracklist:
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Steamroller Blues - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain - 07. Blue Suede Shoes - 08.

Final Count to Midnight - Part 2

This is a press-release we received from Backdraft:
Due to the enormous success of Backdraft’s Box set ‘Final Count to Midnight’ it appears that not enough copies were pressed which have left Elvis fans having to go without.
Since we are unable to process more copies of the box set due to logistical reasons, Backdraft will now release 2 separate products housed in a deluxe super jewel case.
A 2CD version and a separate DVD only release, both with different front covers, contain a deluxe 24 page booklet inside of each. We would like to point out that the content of the booklet in both of the releases are entirely different and that, the photographs and text information are not repeated to each of the releases.
These are again in very limited supplies and dealers will be restricted on quantities.
In the meantime, the production team at Backdraft would like to thank Elvis fans from around the world for their enormous support on this and our past releases.
We will look forward to the near future when we will release a brand new unreleased soundboard (never before heard, not even as an audience recording) from the Las Vegas engagement from the Summer of 1970.
Update August 2, 2014

Some Call it Folk

Elvis’ 1970 Country album was a great idea, so it is a shame that with Elvis’ interest in contemporary folk music he didn’t release a "Folk" themed album. For the May 1971 session Elvis had even used folk group The Nashville Edition as backing singers and selected some interesting songs to record.
However from a marketing perspective we can hardly see an LP called "Elvis Folk" appealing to his fans in 1971, and let’s face it Elvis wasn’t recording what the general public would consider Folk. Instead the sound was more of a spontaneous "unplugged acoustic" feel as opposed to the more recent big ballads or soulful stew of the Memphis sessions. But still….some call it folk.
Now for the very first time....finally an Elvis ‘Folk’ album. Housed in a stunning 3 panel digipack this is a top notch Elvis CD release.

On A Winning Streak!

On A Winning Streak! - From „booth tapes“ Vol. 4
Coming out soon on Straight Arrow is the 3CD set “On A Winning Streak”, featuring three strong shows as recorded on February 17 (DS + MS) and 18 (DS), 1973… which means that all of it was recorded within a day. This release documents what a strain it was on Elvis’ creativity and general well-being to be performing under such a tight schedule for a whole month, but it also shows how well he actually coped under the circumstances. All three shows are tight, lively and entertaining, and you can really hear that the whole room was buzzing with excitement at his shows. All three shows are well-paced, featuring a solid selection of concert favorites as well as songs from the recent ‘Aloha From Hawaii’ television special. Elvis is clearly enjoying the interaction with his fans, and there is plenty of that here. Interestingly, he momentarily loses his patience with one loud fan, though he later says that he was “just kidding”.

A fascinating release, featuring all three shows in surprisingly good audience recorded sound: in fact, these recordings are amongst the finest audience recorded shows out there. Everything can be heard clearly, including all of Elvis’ comments, and the well-balanced and crisp live sound on these recording will make you feel like you are right there in the showroom enjoying the King in person. These tapes were recently rediscovered, we believe that you will agree with us that this is a great find and a real must, and not just for the hardcore collector. Another quality Straight Arrow release!

look Out Jackson Town

Welcome to the third CD release by TNT Records. Again with a little help from our friends at “Audionics” - probably THE premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided once more to pick this time three shows from “Tour Number 14” (May 30 – June 10, 1975). On this brandnew 3 CD set (Release Date: Early May 2014) you are going to hear the three 1975 concerts Elvis did in Jackson, Mississippi (two shows June 8, one show June 9).

Barely over 200 miles or a 3-hour drive from home - on June 8 and 9, 1975 Elvis had Jackson, Mississippi on his tour schedule to play three concerts in two days at the State Fair Coliseum. Tour Number 14 saw its end coming with just another 4 shows in total to do. From all audible and visual experiences listeners of the Jackson-Shows can have it might only be fair to say that Elvis had quite a lot of fun doing what he loved to do: Just being Elvis Presley, singing “his” songs and entertaining the thousands of people who came to see him live in Concert, paying either the regular ticket price or whatever the many ticket scalpers asked for.

The first of the three shows – the afternoon show from June 8 – has been released exactly a decade ago and was titled “Fly T-R-O-U-B-L-E” – it seemed a perfect title for this release because the minute Elvis entered the stage the whole area around him was swarming with flies. On the recording you can hear several jokes and references to those little beasts throughout some parts of the show! The evening performance of this day brings another perfectly motivated Elvis on stage and he delivers another great mixture of “Oldies but Goldies”, Gospels and contemporary titles such as “An American Trilogy” and “The Wonder Of You”. The concert from June 9 (there was only one show this day) can – again – be called “a great performance”. RCA used “Why Me, Lord” from this show on the 1980 “Silver Box” (called “Elvis Aron Presley” – originally released on vinyl as a 8-LP Box). Another nice detail regarding this show: Elvis performed a spontaneous version of “Help Me Make It Through The Night”, the only time he did this song on the whole tour.

If you have missed the show´s first releases from approximately 10 years ago or if you want to owe them in even better sound than before plus exactly the way they were recorded (without the standard “2001 Theme / See See Rider” opening) you should not miss this great new 3 CD set! You can also expect a great 24-pages booklet full of photos and information including newspaper articles and original paperwork. Ask your local dealer for it, he should have it right in time around the scheduled release date for you!

Walkin' Talkin' Glitz City Blues

Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow CD release titled "WALKIN‘ TALKIN‘ GLITZ CITY BLUES", featuring the August 23rd, 1972 Dinner show. It is taken from an original mono audience recording in remarkably good sound. Yes, we used the original actual cassette that was used to record this concert in the first place, and we were able to improve the sound-quality noticeably. Ask your local dealer for samples!

It’s unlikely that anyone who saw Elvis Presley on stage during the Summer ’72 engagement came away disappointed. Presley looked fabulous: he had a nice tan, he was slim, and both the jumpsuit and the jacket / pants combinations that he was experimenting with looked rather good on him. His shows that season were tight and highly professional, and truly offered something for everybody. The setlist was largely based on the MSG one, with new additions like ‘What Now My Love’ and ‘My Way’ adding extra spice to the show. The dinner show from August 23rd, 1972 is a topnotch performance. He’s right in the middle of the engagement, with still about two weeks left, but he delivers the goods and puts his soul especially into the power ballads. It’s not unlikely that he may have wanted to impress journalist Joe Delaney, a reviewer for the Las Vegas Sun and an old friend of the Colonel’s, who was in the audience that night.

It should be noted that the August 23, 1972 Dinner show is completely new, even for die-hard Elvis fans. This concert has never been in circulation in any form. Unfortunately the tape ran out before the finale of „My Way“. The producers decided to use (great sounding) original tapes of the August 22nd, 1972 M/S and the August 23rd, 1972 M/S from their vaults, to fill out the missing part.

This release is presented in Straight Arrow‘s traditional deluxe digipack, designed by one of the best graphic artists in the Elvis world, rare photos from this engagement (he actually wore the blue swirl at this show) as well as intelligent liner-notes that give you the low-down on this show. No need for us to toot our own horn really, since you all know it by now: Straight Arrow delivers.
