The sound quality is rather disappointing and average at best.

And what a way to preview an Elvis concert CD - with a Voice solo performance. :smt038

SA/SP 2012-11-02

Straight Arrow is continuing their popular collector's series of 2 shows from one evening, released in a single package. This time the producers have chosen two excellent performances from Sunday, February 3, 1974 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

On this collection there are worthy performances of revived songs like “Tryin’ To Get To You”, “Sweet Caroline” and a powerful “Polk Salad Annie”, The December ’73 Stax sessions are represented here with pleasant renditions of “Spanish Eyes” and “Help Me”. “An American Trilogy” is as powerful as ever and Elvis' passion for Olivia Newton-John’s “Let Me Be There” is evident too, with the ending being reprised in both shows.

As fans have come to expect from us, the tapes are of very good quality, sourced from early generation copies of the original cassettes. The double digipak contains liner notes and is filled with photos from the Montgomery, AL, March 6th, 1974 show, due to a lack of quality images from Presley’s January-February 1974 engagement.

As usual, these recordings have been carefully engineered to be presented in the best possible sound.

Tracks:

CD 1 / Sunday, February 3, 1974 Dinner Show:

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Tryin’ To Get To You - 06. Sweet Caroline - 07. Love Me Tender - 08. Johnny B. Goode - 09.

Closing Vamp / Announcements.

CD 2 / Sunday, February 3, 1974 Midnight Show:

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. Tryin’ To Get To You - 06. Sweet Caroline - 07. Love Me Tender - 08. Johnny B. Goode - 09.

Yes i know i got this release rather LATE... but had a very good listen to both shows today. D/S sounds good about 8/10 and M/S is a slightly longer show and nearly 9/10 sound......so the release is "Good" PROBLEM with only same songs on both shows + 1 extra at the M/S once you have heard one show its same for next show. Release is 'ok' but file this one as listenable but for collectors only. 8)

Nice title for the cd, although didnt Elvis get it wrong? Didnt he sing "with an 'umble heart"?? Sounds that way to me.

Or could be "a numb old heart"!!

Yes i must admit Tony this was THE most uninteresting of my recent 7 Bootleg CD's i listened too and agree....really the FTD covered that season for me pretty well. :roll:

I like the release. The shows were not uninteresting to me bacause I am an Elvis fan. I was interested in both shows from the opening song until the closing.

But that's just the way I walk another mile.

I don't listen to anything on a regular basis.

However, if I did, this release would be the one.
