Raising His Own Bar


Coming very soon is a previously unreleased Dinner Show from August 14, 1969. Just recently the “Convair” Label released “Bright Light City” featuring Elvis Presley’s Dinner Show August 12, 1969. With its stunning artwork and of course with a great show, the fans demanded for more. You may now say that you have an old Import CD at home called “The Winner Back In Vegas” also claiming that this release featured the August 14, 1969 Dinner Show but during the years fans and research proved that this information was wrong and it was a compilation of songs from various shows to represent a complete show. “Convair” has all the information tracked down and they are part of the 20 pages booklet that comes with the new release.

It’s the raw and powerful Elvis who is trying to raise his own bar from show to show. It’s the third week of his first engagement after the Hollywood era and one can feel that he enjoys himself in front of the audience. His jokes and his nervousness can be found during the monologue which often gets referred as “Life Story”. Hear him telling his own career is pure fun. As a special bonus we have included a rare audioclip of Jerry Scheff, bass player in 1969 of the famous TCB Band talking about being on stage with Elvis.

This release comes once more with a stunning cover and is again limited to 300 copies only. Get it while you can.

With all the multitrack recordings recorded by RCA there is no need for these kind of cd's. Most of the aug 69 shows are very familiar. Even the life story is practically the same in every show. Only when a new song comes around it would be usefull to release that song, or show. Too much of the same.

Actually, no. Tapes from 1969 are more important than that.

Elvis only gave 57 live performances in 1969, and just 11 were officially recorded on multi-track by RCA. Follow That Dream has well-represented the engagement from these multi-tracks, with four (4) incredible CDs.

To date, six (6) have been issued in full:

August 21 MS - Viva Las Vegas (RCA)

August 22 DS - Elvis In Person (FTD)
August 22 MS

August 23 DS
August 23 MS
- Elvis At The International (FTD)

August 24 DS - Live In Las Vegas (RCA)
August 24 MS

August 25 DS
August 25 MS

August 26 DS
- Live in Vegas (FTD)
August 26 MS - All Shook Up (FTD)

In fact, super fans practically have another TWO 1969 multi-track shows in their collection:

Elvis Presley
Sunday, August 24, 1969 MS
International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV


Blue Suede Shoes - Writing For The King (FTD)
I Got A Woman - Writing For The King (FTD)
All Shook Up - Writing For The King (FTD)
Love Me Tender - Writing For The King (FTD)
Jailhouse Rock / Don't Be Cruel - Writing For The King (FTD)
Heartbreak Hotel - Writing For The King (FTD)
Hound Dog - Writing For The King (FTD)
I Can't Stop Loving You
Johnny B. Goode - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
Monologue
Baby What You Want Me To Do - Platinum (RCA)
Runaway
Are You Lonesome To-night? - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
Words - Platinum (RCA)
Yesterday / Hey Jude - Writing For The King (FTD)
In The Ghetto - Elvis Aron Presley (RCA)
Suspicious Minds - Writing For The King (FTD)
What'd I Say
Can't Help Falling In Love - Writing For The King (FTD)

Elvis Presley
Monday, August 25, 1969 MS
International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV


Blue Suede Shoes - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
I Got A Woman
All Shook Up - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
Love Me Tender
Jailhouse Rock / Don't Be Cruel
Heartbreak Hotel
Hound Dog - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
I Can't Stop Loving You - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
My Babe - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
Mystery Train / Tiger Man - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
Monologue
Baby What You Want Me To Do
Runaway
Are You Lonesome To-night?
Words - From Memphis To Vegas (RCA)
Yesterday / Hey Jude
In The Ghetto - Writing For The King (FTD)
Suspicious Minds
What'd I Say
Can't Help Falling In Love

Among others, Tom Jones was at the August 25 MS, so Elvis was no doubt really kicking ass and taking no prisoners this night. The real "mystery" show is August 23 DS. In 43 years, not a single cut has surfaced, the only one of the "energetic eleven" to hold that distinction. Coincidence?

In any case, given that Presley was at the TOP of his game in July-August 1969, every single new show is an essential purchase for the serious Elvis fan, even audience recordings with very poor titles.

At the very least, his nightly monologue, a truth-telling, stream-of-consciousness revelation without parallel in his performing career, is always worth close analysis.

Yup. 8-24-1969 MS is not a soundboard.

8-03-1969 DS may not be a soundboard or a multi-track, either.
