Saw this posted elsewhere, but im curious too ....

Is the sound quality any better on Elvis In Concert 2CD set from Japan compared to the German and US pressings which are both single CDs?

I have the three pressings you mention, and yes, it sounds a tad better.

Sound quality on 24bit paper sleeve is the best IMO

I can't wait for a 5.1 surround sound blu-ray.

I have both the Japanese 2CD set and the 24bit paper sleeve. The 2 CD set is certainly no better than the US edition in terms of sound quality while the Japanese 24bit version is noticably better... it's the best one available.

I'm sure I'll get shot down for asking by certain members but can any one upload the 24 bit remaster of EIC? Would like to hear the sound difference.

Please PM me

Thanks in advance.

At this juncture, given that 85 % of the main catalogue has been issued on FTD, it's only a matter of time (no more than 2 years out) that an EIC 2 CD deluxe will be re-issued on the label.

What a tease... but I hope you're right. I'd like to hear the complete Rapid City show in remixed/remastered sound... while it's far from Elvis at his best, it's a better than average show for 1977... and really his last decent live performance.
