Wednesay, August 22, 1973 Dinner and Midnight Shows
Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas, NV

Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2014-19-02
Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow's double-digipak CD release "ENDLESS SUMMER FESTIVAL!", featuring the August 22, 1973 Dinner and Midnight performances. Both shows are taken from original „booth recordings“, taped by the same person. The sound quality is far superior to the usual audience recordings. Ask your local dealer for samples!

The year's journey from Hawaii to Nevada was almost at its end on August 22, 1973. That Wednesday night, Elvis delivered two professional, sold-out performances for the faithful at the Las Vegas Hilton with a mix of the old and new, including a stunning, yet-to-be recorded cover of Richard Harris' 1971 single, "My Boy." After the final Hilton show on September 3, bass player Emory Gordy would leave to return to the more creative studio environs of Nashville, Presley would instruct manager Tom Parker to leave his employ, his wife Priscilla Beaulieu would leave for good, and Elvis himself would nearly leave the land of the living. It was a long, long way down from that worldwide broadcast in Honolulu on January 14, but the man would survive, somehow, and return to sing his soul that December in Memphis.



It should be noted that neither of these superb-quality, off-line concert recordings have been previously issued. Both shows are completely new, even to die-hard Elvis fans. They were never in circulation, in any form. Enjoy the music!

If you collect audience-recorded concerts, Straight Arrow is the gold standard.

Note to midnightx: the release includes a double-shot of "My Boy," the Richard Harris cover beloved by millions. ;-)

This fan has plenty of audience recording from Vegas in August '73. A couple more won't hurt anything, especially since it's Straight Arrow.

I'll let you know how they are.

So what's an off-line concert recording? It's just an audience recording at the end of the day right?

I buy them for the Announcements.

That's not true.
Faded love was vol.1 of the ''Two Mic Ambient Recordings''
You dont have to say you love me was vol.2 of that.

Living from day to day was the first of the ''Soundbooth Recordings''. see

and this is gonna be vol. 2.

and yes there is a difference between those 2.

Yes. Off-line, soundbooth, whetever -- they are still recorded from the audience.

We need to have an entire release dedicated to these closing announcements.

I'd much rather hear Al Dvorin from the tour shows, though.

Two show's in one package, from straight arrow, and this August '73 season is pretty tight, with great deliveries from the Band and Elvis (minus closing night) so I say its a buy!
