Legacy release coming of Elvis Live In Memphis

Tue Jan 07, 2014 10:41 pm

Amazon has it listed as coming out in March. Looks like we are going to get two different mixes with some bonus tracks from Vegas on the 2nd disc. Interesting.

No kidding, hardly worth a Legacy Edition release, UNLESS they include a version without added echo and applause, then it would be worth one or two listens.

I see it and those last tracks are rehearsals fom august 16 1974. I don't know why they are being included.

Aside from the bonus tracks, it would be interesting to know the difference between the two discs. Two mixes but which ones. A new one maybe plus an old one from the FTD.

Is the track-listing on Amazon actually correct?

Re: Legacy release coming of Elvis Live In Memphis

Good question. I would think that the first disc would be the original album from 1974, and the second disc would be the complete show and remixed/remastered. And whether that would be the FTD mix & master, who knows.

But I really hope Vic Anesini was involved in regards to the complete show.

Perhaps the whole listing is a mistake. Live On Stage In Memphis in no way qualifies for any kind of Legacy Edition treatment. It is as redundant a live release now as it was in 1974.

It may not be. For one thing, a Legacy release usually presents the album as it was released at the time. The 1974 RCA LP did not include the entire concert, it was carefully edited to avoid as much overlap as possible with the 1969, 1970, 1972 and 1973 live albums.

Werent the songs omitted cause they were
sloppily performed

Well, I definitely wouldn't say "Steamroller Blues" was "sloppily performed", as I enjoy this performance more than the Aloha master.

Very surprising Legacy release. I hope - if this information is really true - that they try to do wonders with the sound as they already did with MSG. If not, I don't see the purpose of this release.

That is a great cut, and beats the hell out of the Aloha master. All Shook Up, Teddy Bear... they tell another story. Fever is very weak.

No, it was primarily to avoid repetition, although several do suffer in comparison to earlier versions.

As noted, RCA was well aware that four live LPs had already been on the market in the past five years. Another rut!

For my money it's not nearly as good as the 1-14-1973 live master, which RCA pulled for single release.

That said, imagine if Elvis had tried "Steamroller" three years earlier.

I wonder if the planned Legacy release is to pair up the Memphis show remixed and complete with the March 18th show put out on 48 hrs to Memphis.

Neither did the inclusion of Love Letters with Elvis Country.
