Number 1, he last performed in Memphis in 1961.
Number 2, this explains a LOT.


They meant ''Last Played Richmond in 1957'' Which again dont make sence, as elvis performed in richmond in 1972.

Really? I loved his work on MSG show. I hope the dude is back!

Sorry, of course it's all a matter of taste. But I can't listen to this darn mess.


I'm amazed! The Dude made the whole concert alive again. He also brought some edge the the sound that the original vinyl was lacking. The original mixing and mastering was done in a bit hurry, wasn't it?

When I bought the Legacy edition of Aloha after the MSG release, it sounded so boring that I never even listened the whole CD. It may rot in peace.

I'm sorry I was talking about the A. S. That sounded awful to my ears. I liked the new mix of the Aloha rehearsal show though.

And why are three of the rehearsal tracks unreleased??? :wtf:

I wonder where did they pick up that piece of information about Elvis' preferences?

Well this breaks from the tradition that Elvis' Legacy Editions have TWO classic albums per release.

48 hours to memphis cant be considered a classic album, as this was not released in elvis lifetime.

Then go ahead! I have a soft spot for the 1988 "Alternate Aloha" mix but this one sounds really good. Okay, the main show on the Legacy Edition sounds really shite.

Not really! The Aloha rehearsal wasnt a classic album either.. they already broke it with that.

That's true, didn't even think about that one. I am so much NOT a fan of the live albums after That's The Way It Is material I barely pay attention to them. I buy them and put them on the self, as I will with this release. And MSG broke from this tradition too. My mistake.

It looks like the Legacy group is doing like RCA 40 years ago: more and more live albums. A Legacy production dedicated to the Sun recordings (60th anniversary) would have made more sense to me, and it was also the perfect opportunity to release the live I Forgot To Remember To Forget. 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.

I was also very please with mixing/mastering on PFAP... and quite disappointed they used yet another set of engineers on the Aloha rehearsal show... which is, IMO, a terrible mix.

I'm looking forward to this release even if it kills two FTD in the process (Memphis and 48 hours to Memphis)

You're right. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Still, the 74 concert for a legacy release is a big disappointment for me.

How in any way is this a Legacy Edition release? If this information proves to be true, it's somewhat disappointing. I guess it's an opportunity get these shows out into the mainstream but I don't see the attraction (from a general public point of view - doesn't have the notoriety of the MSG or Aloha shows).

Re: Legacy release coming of Elvis Live In Memphis

This fan may or may not get the Legacy edition, but I really see no reason to.

I personally am too fond of the two FTD releases to go with anything else.

Well, it's more of a legacy edition than Elvis has had in the past - at least the second disc will be filled with rare material (although not unreleased) which is directly related to the main album as with Legacy releases by other artists.

Looks like I guessed right on this one, except for the rehearsal bonus tracks.

Re: Legacy release coming of Elvis Live In Memphis

Wed Jan 08, 2014 6:42 pm

I'm sure when then say 'unreleased' they mean unreleased in America, we have to remember that FTDs are 'Imports' here and not widely available to the general public. IMO

I hope the main concert is remixed, because I really didn't enjoy the FTD of that release so much... I thought the sound was a downgrade. It would be a shame to put that version out on the mainstream market.

If the 2nd CD come from March 18, 1974 Richmond show (previously issued on FTD's 48 Hours to Memphis, there are some errors in the tracklist

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.
