Wednesday Night Rollover !



It’s All About Elvis! A week into his March-April engagement at the Las Vegas Hilton, Elvis continued to offer generally dynamic performances, filled with good humour and a sense of fun. A good deal of the set from the midnight show on March 26, 1975 incorporated songs from his sessions at RCA Hollywood from earlier that month, all of which would appear on the Elvis Today album. Three-quarters of his two most recent singles received an airing as well, with ‘Promised Land’ sounding frisky indeed. The often-lengthy, angry and too-revealing monologues from the previous summer in Las Vegas were now gone.
On this set is a superb-quality off-line recording of the entire show, and it’s a delight. There are commendable performances of 'I’ll Remember You’ (with a quick one-liner of Dionne Warwick’s 1967 hit ‘Alfie’ at the start), 'It's Midnight' (with a funny false start), 'Big Boss Man', ‘And I Love You So', 'Burning Love' and his current top-twenty RCA single, the dramatic 'My Boy.’ Elvis even throws in the seldomly performed ‘Until It’s Time For You To Go.’ Wednesday’s child might have been full of woe, but Wednesday night’s gig at the Hilton is full of go-go-go!

As fans have come to expect, this recording is of very good quality, sourced from an early generation copy of the original cassette. It was recorded by the same fan who taped shows used for our previous release, "AMORE, ELVIS". The digipak contains excellent liner notes and is filled with photos from the March-April 1975 engagement. As usual, these recordings have been carefully engineered to be presented in the best possible sound. If you have enjoyed "AMORE ELVIS", you will love "WEDNESDAY NIGHT ROLL OVER"! That’s a guarantee, baby!

Straight Arrow Special Products

SA/SP 2012-10-02


Why do all the recent SA releases are being labeled as ‘special products’? What makes them ‘special’? The fact they’re digipak releases? I just wish we got a good ol’ SA 'regular' product one of these days…

Wow another audience taped concert! Can't wait to hear it.......not. I can't imagine that an audience taped show has "very good quality". Well, at least the package has "good liner notes"!

What we had on cdr ended during Steamroller Blues. Now we have the show for the first time
in complete form which means a new (and better sounding) source. Debut on silver disc of course.
Another great digi package IMO. The shows were not bad and Elvis was in great shape vocally.

One of the most beautiful CD-covers ever! The set-list is interesting, esp. 'Steamroller Blues' and 'Until It's Time For You To Go'.

I know the show and it`s not a bad one....the Vegas setlists were excellent in 1975..

Damned audience recordings!

One of these days I'm going to consider not buying one of them.

yes any release from this season in good sound is always welcome from STRAIGHT ARROW! :lol:

Boy, they are really rushing them out these days! I have virtually stopped buying them now. An Elvis dealer had a pile of old SA releases for sale at half price at an Elvis event recently. It seems they are difficult to shift these days. If there were 2 discs in the set then I would consider, but one 50 minute bog standard show for £20....I don't think so.

20,- is too expensive, i agree. change your dealer if you can. for example i just received an offer for the cd for just 15,- EURO which means around 12,50 POUNDS.

That`s a a fair price.. :wink:

That alone is worth the price of admission.

A nice song, IMO. It was in the UK top 5 around the time I was becoming an Elvis fanatic. Happy memories.

What do you have against these shows ? They offer interesting set lists and Elvis
is in a good mood. We have a decent sound regarding the source.
All in all an audience recording par excellence..

I don't have anything against them. I have been collecting audience recorded shows, starting with cassetttes, for over 30 years. I just find now that you pay £20 then never play them again due to the fact there are so many excellent soundboard shows available, plus Elvis did virtually the same songs night after night.
There is only one cd with this set and I find it poor value for money when I could put that £20 towards half a decent Elvis book or summat else.

Yes, there are plenty of good performances and many good sound quality ones. But there are also some appalling releases made over the years which have just been put out to line someone's pockets. (Anybody remember "Broken finger" for example??!!!) :mrgreen:
