The audience definitely appreciated 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' on this one.

I felt threatened at least three times.

The audience definitely ate up 'Hurt.' Of the three times he did it, he never did go for the extra high note at the end. He did manage to pull off a decent version of 'An American Trilogy.' It was funny (again) to hear him say that he didn't want to miss Heaven on a technicality when a woman asked him for his necklace. There is also a woman during the first couple of songs that sounds as if she is very close to an orgasm. I hope she made it.

Not an outstanding show by any means, though entertaining and in very good sound.

Disc 2: Charlotte, NC, March 20th 1976 ES.
A good enjoyable show in great soundboard quality. This is one of my favourite shows from 1976, good solid versions of America, burning love, PSA, HGTA, hurt, and I love you so and a nice inclusion of heartbreak hotel. The bonus songs from 1977 are great too.

:D ... I DID IT MY WAY....2005 release of the Green Bay 28.4.77 show by Memory records in Great Sound!~ :lol: His show isn't the best as noted by Sherril being brought into sing 2 songs straight after an Excellent version of Mountain.Despite this being a bit of a less good show Elvis's VOICE is excellent strong, rich and singing every song properly! i enjoyed the great sound so much i have l have listened to it 5 times in a row......as my FTD Promised Land hasn't arrived-yet~!
The Press in Green Bay trtied to bury Elvis after this show but compared to a later tour show such as Madison 77' this compares as a 'good show!~' certainly 'well sung' by any standard....pity he didn't sing more that night. :roll:

Interesting set list, a committed performance plus better than average audience sound - making it a worthy addition for the live import collector.

One of my favouite FTDs. I love the sound quality of this cd, the TCB band and Elvis can be heard very clearly. IMO this is a great documentation of Elvis from 1977 which includes some fine performances.

Just heard all of CD1 and the beginning of disc 2 last week and was very impressed ---once he finally got the show going! (I always cringe if he asks if it's day or night!)

The sound is impressive for an AR and there's something fresh about the Tahoe shows. I plan to finish it soon. (I usually like to hear it in one sitting before making a judgement.)

But the disc I really enjoyed this weekend (I forgot to finish the other one) was:

Thursday, August 30, 1973 Midnight Show at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV

01. Opening Vamp / C. C. Rider, 02. I Got A Woman / Amen, 03. Love Me, 04. Steamroller Blues, 05. You Gave Me A Mountain, 06. Trouble, 07. Long Tall Sally / Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On / Your Mama Don't Dance / Flip Flop and Fly / Hound Dog, 08. Love Me Tender, 09. Fever, 10. Bridge Over Troubled Water (with reprise), 11. Suspicious Minds, 12. Introductions of singers, musicians, 13. My Boy, 14. I Can's Stop Loving You, 15. An American Trilogy, 16. Johnny B. Goode, 17. Introduction of daughter, Lisa Marie / Lady Of Spain (one liner), 18. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, 19. How Great Thou Art (with reprise), 20. Can't Help Falling In Love, 21. Closing Vamp



Both immediately rank with the better AR's - not top 20 but certainly edging into the Top 40, providing a fresh show with some unique aspects. Both are for hard-core fans only but are true beauties for those who collect the best concerts on CD with top-shelf presentation for a stellar "you are there" experience.

Yesterday I gave BACK WITH A BANG! another spin. One of the most enjoyable concerts of Elvis' later years. :D

1977-5-23 - Funny How Time Slips Away - Straight Arrow

3rd Show from the penultimate tour - pretty good show, pretty good sound, last time Elvis sings Funny How Time Slips Away done earlier than usual in the set.

"Alright, Okay, You Win" from Straight Arrow. Honestly, not really a bad concert (pity it's incomplete) in more than decent sound quality. All in all, a show that an audience recordings fan can enjoy.

Very enjoyable and listenable audience recording. The crowd starts applauding midway through "An American Trilogy" and gives him a fantastic ovation at the end. A superb version pulled off by the main attraction.

I actually didn't compare the two. However, I was pleased with the sound on the new disc and have removed the original from the shelf.

I'll probably give it away some day in the future.
