I would use these instead:

Polk Salad Annie - TTWII disc 2 (best version)
Proud Mary - Afternoon in the Garden
Mountain - Aloha Via Satellite
I cant stop loving you - TTWII Disc 3 (very dynamic)
Something - TTWII disc 1 (arrangement is more soulful)

You might also consider both "Johnny B. Goode" and "Steamroller Blues" from Platinum.

I actually like Unchained Melody from the silver box (the issued single) with overdubs. I would use Mystery Train/Tiger Man off of TTWII Disc 2, only because that disc is my absolute favorite to listen to. The sound and energy are fantastic.

If I remember correct "johnny" from Platinum is the same as In person version......a mistake in production.Havent compared platinum remix vs Memphis 74 ftd of Steamroller blues......will do that.

I like the Moody Blue version of unchained melody the best.......will check the medley though.

Yes, "Johnny B. Goode" is the same recording, but the mix is quite different.

I prefer the In Concert version of "Mountain" over the Aloha version.

Hi.

use 2001 Intro from Aloha. Best mastered performance of it

(don't use the MSG Intro with its sour note) :roll:

I recommend beginning the cdr with a brief highlight of the 1975 Jackson MI show with the pre-show announcement about "The show wil begin in a few minuites. Be sure to get your Elvis super souvenirs in the lobby! Only $10.."
