What a well-put together issue with plenty of interesting articles - more on the Elvis articles elsewhere. If you are a music lover, particularly American roots music, this issue is always a must, especially with Elvis on board!
It turns out not to be the "Elvis In Person" Lp version, but another one from that Vegas season.
So Track 27 (!) of 29 is "Suspicious Minds" from August 26, 1969, which first saw issue on RCA's disc one of the 2001 "Live in Las Vegas" box. The main Elvis article is all about Elvis in Vegas and specifically the advantages of this early live version.
What a nice package.
I've heard from some folks via PM, but anyone else can just contact me via PM to do a swap.

I transcribed the information from the magazine incorrectly: it is the August 24th show from LILV.
I'm going to have to make a comparison to see who is correct.
The author makes a strong case for the merits of this version.
