Eugene, November 25, 1976 SB release by FTD ?

Sat Mar 24, 2012 10:12 am

From another topic where we shortly talked about this show..I came to think about it..
I think .this is one of the best shows from 1976 from a period where Elvis seemed to
reconsider his whole situation and really delivered decent shows..I have attached what we
have on AR..it sounds brilliant..and Elvis clean..not slurring the words or whatever..
Do you think this would be a good choice for a future FTD..?

Eugene, November 25, 1976 ES

Yes, from November of 1976 it would be a great choice.

I'd prefer something from April 1972, but that's just me.

Just curious, why do we need a soundboard if the audience tape sounds brilliant? (and it does!)
I'd rather have a Nov 76 soundboard not yet available in good sound.. (Anaheim, California!!)

Anaheim on soundboard would be amazing. My mom & grandma were lucky enough to attend that November 76 show.

I think we have enough 1976 soundboards to hold us over for awhile.

I might be in the minority, but I don't mind a soundboard from any period ever! Of course anything pre-74 is more desirable since by my count we have 24 from '74 - 25 from '75 - 25 from '76 - and a few from '77 although generally not being complete since it seems they stopped recording complete shows. As opposed to only 7 from '73 - 11 from 72 - 6 from '71 - 9 from '70 - and 8 from '69, so a show from Tour 23 is needed and would be great - it'd be nice to have a totally unreleased show - meaning not released as an audience recording - then again if Eugene was the best show of the tour it would make a good case for release.

Of the 9 Tours from 1976 - 3 are still not covered the opening tour or tour 16 the next to last or tour 23 and the dreaded late summer tour or tour 21 where we have great sounding boots but poor shows like "Old Times Are Not Forgotten and "Southbound" and of course nothing from Tahoe or Vegas. So if we're lucky we should see at least 5 more soundboards from 76 - and who wouldn't love to hear another soundboard from the end of the year? Odds are though that Atlanta, Wichita, or Pittsburgh don't exist or are in the hands of private collectors.

Because the AR is far from being complete..without the pre show program we have a RT of 21:55.

Although I welcome every soundboard, I tend to agree with that. 1976 is not one of THE best years, you know...

I for one, would absolutley love it if FTD released this on soundboard.

Gosh, many of us are not getting any younger..., why don't they just release ALL of the soundboards they have from ANY year!!! At the pace they are going they are going to loose their "market" of concert cd buyers.

I know. Some of these soundboards are so similair it would have been better had they just released them by
years.

Perhaps a 100 page picture bookl with most of the tours from 1976.

A 10 disc set. That would just take care of the 1976 right there.

And do the same with 1974, 1975, and maybe a smaller set for 1977.

If they had done it that way, it would have pave the way for other better releases.

But to put these 1976 shows out one at a time, is really stretching it out.

Glad you liked my tape and CD boot from this show....................that's the last show I ever saw Elvis perform :cry: ........................AND he sounded so great!!!!!! For me, I'd love to see a soundboard from '71................the only show I saw in '71 is the Aug.1st Tahoe show which is all over the net and has been made into many boots...........................all sounding not too bad but some missing the absolute beginning of the tape where we totally freak out when Elvis comes on stage....................he was only 20 feet away to the left of us!!!!!!!! :smt007

Actually, Cisco, now that you are somewhat affiliated with FTD's soundboard release program, please realize that while this may be a decent show for 1976, for the most part, 1976 was a major let-down. We know there are limitations in terms of what can be released between 1970-1973, but please try to find possibilities and options for that period.

I really really would love to see Eugene released as well as: November 30, 1976 and February 21, 1972 dinner shows released on soundboard.

We'd finally have a good quality record of the show where my mom was kissed by Elvis. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The audience recordings sounds damn good :smt020, so in soundboard quality it will be great!. But please leave it complete with all the other acts if possible.

If I could choose a show I would prefer the soundboard of the December 1976 Las Vegas show that is in the RCA vaults :smt007. Thank you. Bye for now :smt006.

For the love of all that is good please hold off on the 1976 soundboards for a good while!! It was a sh*t concert year and surely better focus can be placed on other areas of Elvis' career.

I'm afraid on FTD you'll never be getting the 'other acts songs as well' because FTD doesn't want to have to pay those artists. :|
