Here we have the 3rd release from the Luxor label, and this time they bring us the August 31, 1976 show. Again they prove their knowledge how to remaster the tapes, and no doubt they are the best when it comes to remixing the tapes, but, it's too bad that the concert is very boring. Elvis is not inspired and sounds very tired, there is some life in Mystery/tiger man train, but this is the only "highlight" of the show. As a bonus we have two songs from Johnson City, "Trying to get to you", and Elvis first live version ever of "Hurt". If you want a great quality soundboard show like the "Guaranteed to blow your mind" & "My, it's been a long, long time", and don't care what or how Elvis sang, then this will be a nice add-on for your collection, if you're looking for a great show, then you can skip this one.
