Instead here is Elvis live in 74 singing Mama Don't Dance and Let Me Be There. This is very disappointing.

There are much better albums that deserve a legacy treatment (even the one dedicated to Elvis albums) but here we go again wasting time and space in the catalogue.


Who says legacy aint releasing stuff related to sun later this year? it's only January!!



That's right, it's not July yet. If we are hearing about this one in Jan. then we might hear about a Sun set in April or May.

It goes without saying that Sony will ultimately produce a new, updated mainstream Sun set.

'Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis' 40th Anniversary 2CD Edition To Be Released March 18


140108_recordedmemphis.jpg


RCA/Legacy Recordings Set to Release 40th Anniversary 2CD Edition of Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis, the King of Rock's Triumphant 1974 Hometown Return Concert

Newly Remastered Album Includes All Concert Tracks Not Included on Original Vinyl

2nd Disc Premieres Previously Unreleased MONO "Test Run" of Entire Concert Recorded with a Live Audience at the Richmond Coliseum on March 18, 1974


* * * * *

RCA Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis (http://smarturl.it/elvis_ERLOSIM_amzn) with an expanded 2CD release of the monumental concert experience featuring tracks left off the original album (because of the spatial limitations of vinyl) plus a wealth of previously unreleased material.

Disc 2 of the newly remastered expanded Legacy Edition of Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis presents for the first time a recently located recording of Elvis' complete concert "test run" held for an ecstatic live audience on March 18, 1974, two days before his historic concert return to Memphis, where he'd last played live in 1957. The remarkable "test run" performance was recorded in MONO, drenched in the reverb Elvis preferred, and provides new insight into the magic of Elvis.

As a special added bonus for Elvis aficionados, Disc 2 of Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis includes five intimate tracks (three of them previously unreleased) cut at the RCA Studios in Hollywood on August 16, 1974. Originally intended as reference recordings for an upcoming Las Vegas engagement, the performances—which include "Down In The Alley," "Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues," "Softly As I Leave You," "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "The Twelfth Of Never"—-provide a rare fly-on-the-wall glimpse into Elvis' consummate backstage artistry as he prepares these songs for concert.

The musicians backing Elvis on Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis include James Burton and John Wilkinson (guitars); Charlie Hodge (guitar and vocals); Duke Bardwell (bass); Ronnie Tutt (drums); Glen D. Hardin (piano); The Sweet Inspirations, J.D. Sumner & The Stamps, Kathy Westmoreland (vocals) with Joe Guercio and his Orchestra.

Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis will include a 24 page booklet featuring rare photos, previously unseen memorabilia, new liner notes, press clips and more.

Following the artistic success of his 1973 Stax sessions and the global phenomenon of the Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite album and broadcast the same year, Elvis opened 1974 with a 15 city tour routed to end in Memphis and a state-of-the-art concert recording.

"I wanted to record a live session in my hometown of Memphis," said Elvis at the time. "After all, this is where it all started out for me."

Originally released on vinyl on July 7, 1974, Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis reached #1 on the Country charts and featured "How Great Thou Art," the track that would bring Elvis his third (and third Gospel) Grammy win.

I don't get it. What is this "test run" concert on the 2nd disc?
Is this the same concert we got on "48 hours to memphis" FTD?

Vandaag, op de 79ste geboortedag van Elvis, maakt The Legacy bekend dat op 14 maart a.s. een bijzonder heruitgave van het album ‘Elvis Recorded Live In Memphis’ het licht zal zien. Het originele album verscheen vrijwel exact 40 jaar eerder, op 20 maart 1974. De nieuwe uitgave is bijzonder: disc 1 bevat het oorspronkelijke album, geheel opnieuw gemixed, en nu aangevuld met de songs die –wegens ruimtegebrek- destijds niet op het vinyl terecht kwamen. Op disc 2 is het volledige concert te horen dat Elvis enkele dagen eerder in Richmond gaf, en dat hij als een test voor de show in Memphis beschouwde. Daarnaast zijn op deze schijf delen te vinden van de opgenomen repetities (augustus ’74) voor een serie concerten in Las Vegas, met zeldzame opnames als ‘Softly As I Leave You’ en ‘The Twelfth Of Never’.

Yes it is, and most likely in the same sound to.
I would personally have chosen the March 17 1974 recording in memphis, Which we got ''That's Allright Mama'' And ''Johnny Be Goode'' From as bonus tracks on the "48 hours to memphis" FTD

They are calling it a "test run" insinuating that it was recorded to make sure things went smoothly for the real deal two days later.

Sounds more exciting that way.

It's slightly worrying that Sony don't even know that he performed in Memphis in 1961!

we have everything from FTD and I do not think anything has been changed on sound. They could publish a studio album again. Put Luck with bonus and the lost album with the May 63 session with bonus would be nice.

Will be interesting to see what the actual product lists with regards to this material, the On Stage Legacy Edition credited the FTD material borrowed for that one.

It's stated from the website Johnny2523 quoted (http://www.bluesmagazine.nl/40th-anniversary-2cd-edition-elvis-recorded-live-stage-memphis/)

I did my own translation and it's basically the same -->

Today, on the 79th birthday of Elvis, The Legacy is known that on 14 March, a special edition of the album "Elvis Recorded Live In Memphis" will see the light. The original album was released almost exactly 40 years earlier, on March 20, 1974. The new edition is special: Disc 1 contains the original album, completely mixed again, and now supplemented with the songs, because of space-time is not ended up on the vinyl. On disc 2 is told that Elvis gave a few days earlier in Richmond, the entire concert, and that he regarded as a test for the show in Memphis. In addition, this drive to find the rehearsals recorded (august '74) for a series of concerts in Las Vegas, with rare recordings as "Softly As I Leave You" and "The Twelfth Of Never.

The first statement is a typo, the second correct.

The 1974 Richmond show has not been released at retail.

Neither had the August 1969 bonus cuts on the On Stage - Legacy Edition, yet they are duly credited as being first issued on the In Person FTD within the booklet for said release. I wonder if the Richmond show will be given the same curtesy.

Here's Mountain and Steamroller from the alternate show on the legacy edition - still sounds great to my ears. Okay, if I'd be nitpicking again I'd say the horns might be a little too upfront and Elvis and James a little too far in the back of the mix but all in all it sounds natural and clear to me.
