what a great show that was.on february 23, 1970!!!
Great song lineup, great vocal and elvis in good mood.
I think that along with the august 12 ms this show would be the second best show form 1970.

January 27 1974 - Las Vegas - Midnight Show...

Really Good Show. Elvis is in a really good mood with some new songs added to the setlist and few oldies. The highlights of the show are "Let Me Be There" (he actually sings it twice because he says he and the band really love to sing it) "Polk Salad Annie" (with a Guitar Solo instead of Bass Solo), "Spanish Eyes", "Help Me" (introduced as his upcoming single), "An American Trilogy".

Only negatives are that he brings back "You've Lost That Lovin Feelin" and "Sweet Caroline" to his shows. I think they should have been retired by this time. Especially Caroline. To Elvis' credit u can tell he still loves singing "Lovin Feelin'". He really belts it out. Another negative is Sherril Neilson. Not a fan of his singing at all and He sings along on "Spanish Eyes".

During "Long Tall Sally" Elvis changes the lyrics to "I Saw Marty Allen and Bald Headed Sally...They saw Frenchie coming and they ducked back in the Alley". After introducing Marty Allen Elvis sings a line of "The Most Beautiful Girl in The World". Elvis says Marty told him to do that and jokes that he will get around to recording that song because Charlie Rich needs the money. Elvis also makes some comments about his jumpsuit having mirrors on it and he hopes it does not drive the crowd crazy.

Anaheim Ca - April 23 1973...

A Good Show. Not on the same level as The Portland show later On the tour though. Elvis is in a good mood. After the crowd is cheering for him when he does the "Well, Well, Well's" before I Got A Woman he says..."I Haven't done anything yet, I just got here". before the oldies medley he says he would like to do a medley of Irish Folk Songs. Just before he sings "I'll Remember You" he says "Recently did a TV show, last week....I Hope You Saw it....(The crowd cheers) then Elvis jokes..."Then we don't have to do anymore because u saw the rest of it". At one point he jokes he has The Jolly Green Giant behind him. I don't know what he was joking about there.

The highlights are "You Gave Me A Mountain", "Steamroller Blues", "How Great Thou Art", "Johnny B Goode", "What Now My Love", "I'll Remember You", "An American Trilogy.

Unchained Melody - 1977 - various February 1977 performances, including a near complete 2/20/77 - Charlotte show.

Some good, some not so good on this one. I especially love the impassioned take on How Great Thou Art, and the (only) live version of Moody Blue

Gave the opening night show a spin last night it was a great reminder of just how vibrant Elvis was during this period. It was his second engagement in Las Vegas yet he was still able to create quite an electrifying show. A particular aspect of the recording that you cannot ignore is his voice--which is heard loud and clear in this recording. That growl that we remember from 1954 was still there. The amount of power coming through those lungs can be felt right through your speakers. Elvis' secret weapon was reaching a particular register in his voice; he'd hit certain notes and his voice would kind of scratch the roof of his throat. It's the secret ingredient in a lot of his most famous performances from the fifties. You can hear many moments in this show when he reaches that spot. The July/August '69 and Feb 1970 engagements were the most raw Elvis would ever be on a Las Vegas stage.

The overall performance by everyone on stage is pretty shaky and at times a tad inconsistent (it was opening night so they get a pass). But the overall feeling is very rock and roll. Almost too rock and roll for the sleepy Las Vegas crowd. I was struck by this especially when I remembered that Dean Martin was apparently in the audience on this particular evening. You can't get more Las Vegas than Dean Martin and I began to wonder what Dean thought of this show? He probably had a great time but I wondered what kind of notes he would have given Presley after the show? I could see him suggest to tighten up the band, fix the pacing, concentrate more on Elvis' singing.... in other words: iron the wrinkles out...less rock and roll and more slick Las Vegas shlcok. Unfortunately, as the years progressed for Elvis in Las Vegas, that's exactly what would happen: the wild, unpredictable rock and roll element in the music disappeared as the shiny (not too mention tame) Las Vegas sound completely took over. By the mid to late 70's--the music had been completely stripped of its identity, leaving nothing but a shell of what these songs used to be.

Elvis' voice was too big to be confined to a Vegas showroom. His voice was built for outdoor stadiums, arenas and large halls. That voice needed to ricochet off aluminum chairs and metal roofs, not comfy booths and dinnerware. Vegas killed his spirits and the first thing it took was his voice. You can hear Elvis use that classic voice in these first two engagements but soon he would find less and less opportunities to use it. There's no need to shout or scream in a Vegas showroom--the sound doesn't echo because of the intimate nature of the room. There isn't much space between the stage and the audience so there's no need to work extra hard to make your voice travel to the back of the room like you would in an arena. Elvis eventually got used to that. He realized he never had to project that way again. In many ways, he never did.

This is a great show and is for me one of the best examples of Elvis' power as a live performer.

just restored this for a project, gotta love the sound on this, and Elvis in great form .............
If you listen to it you can only conclude it's probably one of the best shows Elvis ever gave. He is full of energy, giving it all and really firing up the band backing him up. "Words" for instants sounds so great; Elvis really had much more control of his voice than in the known 1969 versions. "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", partly known but with a great reprise. We can name all 22 tracks as highlight but the entire thing is so great that you have to experience it yourself completely, believe us, when you close your eyes you really feel like being there! It only makes us longing for a boxset with all recorded concerts...

September 6 1971 - Closing Show...Las Vegas...

A really Good Show although Elvis' voice seems worn down. U only notice it when he talks. No problems with how he sings. he intros himself as Johnny Cash and it sounds like he says "i grew up at The International" and says he will try to entertain the audience on way or another. Its been said that this is the show where he debuted the capes. During the intro to "Polk Salad Annie" he says .."Batman...Fly Away". he might have been joking that he looked like Batman with the cape. The Highlights of the show are "Polk Salad Annie", "Johnny B Goode", "Its Impossible", "Are You Lonesome Tonight?", "Suspicious Minds" with big Karate demo afterwards, "Lawdy Miss Clawdy". Before he does the oldies medley he says..."Oldies but Goodies man". After he performs "Suspicious Minds" and starts introducing the band u can hear that he is really out of breath. which is a good reason he usually did the intros after performing that.

Near the end of the show he does quite a bit of talking. He intros Priscilla saying "stand up baby"...after she gets a big applause he jokes that she gets more applause than he does.He also explains that he still has friends from High School with him (meaning Red West etc.), and thanks the audience for coming out to see him even though the economy is bad. He then compliments the band by saying .."All these guys with me were handpicked. They are the best in their field." He also mentions that the suits are made especially for the fans.."Without you it don't mean nothing" and then jokes it would be a "cold ass room".:)

Then as he goes into "Can't Help Falling In Love" he stops it and adds..."People ask me when I'm gonna quit" the crowd shouts "noooooo!!!" and Elvis replies "Its true....Retire....No, I Love it!...I dig it!!" and the crowd cheers. he then closed the show with "Can't Help Falling..."

Houston: funny elvis sings ''You know i can be found laying here on the ground, If you can't come around, atleast please telephone'' during Don't Be Cruel
Elvis uses a bit of his raw voice on hound dog.. I was thinking it was goin to be a trowaway, but heck this version isn't half as bad as those others, this one is quite okay!.
Elvis does a rocking burning love and seems to be really up for this show. Great setlist, and i doubt anybody left dissapointed!
