Elvis live in Cincinnati, Ohio 1971 AR

Sun Dec 02, 2012 3:56 pm

Here´s how I spent my saturday evening, I transferred a cassette to cd-r.
Elvis Presley live at Cincinnati Gardens in Cincinnati, Ohio on Thursday November 11, 1971 at 8:30 PM. 13 272 people attended this performance in which Elvis was dressed in a black jumpsuit with a green cape. Information from Stein Erik Skar and his excellent and unsurpassed book Elvis The Concert Years 1969-1977, published by Flaming Star in 1992.

I dug through my mediocre collection of cassettes and found this tape I got for free from the late great Bob Heis. I had asked him if he made any recordings during the many concerts and this is the only one.
I bought many photo-sets featuring Elvis in concert from him some 20 years ago. Bob Heis sure was a great man and he did so much for us fans, he left behind an invaluable legacy of stills and films.
This here show has become a favourite of mine, at least post-1970. Please enjoy this concert friends, the sound is rough but the excitement is great. Excellent show and excellent song line-up but bad sound. I`ll put it on youtube for everyone who hasn´t heard it before, coming tomorrrow. Is it out on a CD?
I believe this was the tour when JD Sumner and The Stamps joined Elvis.

Since this show is from the November '71 tour shouldn't the opening song be That's All Right?

Was it ever revealed who the source for the Boston soundboard was? it's a shame because as much as i like the Boston show there were better shows on that tour that i wish we had on soundboard.

To make things clear, this is audio only. I transferred my Bob Heis cassette to CD-R so I have no footage to go along with it. I thought you´d enjoy the sound.

I know I do.
The sound is not that great but it is possible to enjoy the show once you get used to it.
The similarity with Boston is striking.
November '71 shows an uncaged Elvis, with a better setlist compared to previous years (in my humble opinion) and less polished concerts compared to '72.

I think as far as on tour shows, it never got any better than this tour.
The day we get a new Nov '71 soundboard would be big news to me.
It's mysterious only one showed up in all these years.
