you wrote this almost ten days ago. did you had it alraedy? i ordered already two weeks ago but still nothing there. seems nobody here did get it already.
hope the show is really new and not just wrong dated.


jamba, you wrote just a couple of posts before that you got it already on the 16th or so and now you are writing exactly the opposite. what´s that all about?

but anyhow, i did REALLY get it 2 days ago and i was hoping for a great release after the posts i read in this thread.

i am sorry to say that i am disappointed. although the sound is decent, elvis´ voice is too much in the background but what i really hate is the "wavering" of the recording which starts already after the 3rd song and continues to get worse all through the cd. that makes me sick! :x

The tape must have been in a bad condition, but still there are a lot of worse sounding audience recordings out there. The show itself is quite good, the highlight -at least for the concert collectors- is the rare performance of "I Just Can't Help Believin'". In total it's a fine concert with a good mix of older and newer songs. The artwork is well done, I like especially the pictures of the hotel and the shots that show the whole stage.

In total "Impossible" is not the best Touchdown release, but certainly an interesting one for all collectors of concerts. :D

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT~! :D

i almost enjoyed listening to this release because i had never heard this show b4 and it also contains THE rare performance!~
but the wavering gets REALLY Annoying upon listening to the 50 minute show. :?

Then maybe we might be lucky and one fine day a soundboard recording will surface. Let's keep our fingers crossed! :wink:
