Will there be more soundboards from Audionics?

Wed Jul 09, 2014 2:24 pm

When they released their soundboards last year, Audionics said in their press releases that they were just "warming up", or something to that effect, and it seemed like there were more interesting stuff on the way. So do you guys think there will more soundboards from them? Maybe they will step up and become the new bootleg kings and help us all get over the awful demise of Madison! I hope so.

I'd also like to hear your opinions on Audionics' last CD with the Tuscaloosa show on it. Is that one worth tracking down? Or are the highlights already released on other CDs?

If I remember correctly, Rock Legend said some time ago that the Shreveport show (released on The Creeping Crud Express) was the last soundboard tape left from the good old days and that the well went dry. Will we see another unreleased soundboard out any time soon? I think we will, but I guess it's going to be through the official channel (FTD) rather than on bootleg. On the other hand, who knows...


PS. I didn't get Things Get Loose In Tuscaloosa. I'm fine having Deep Down South in my collection.

That's basically correct.

It is my understanding that the import labels have virtually nothing left at present.
The only exception to that is Mr ‘Boxcar’, who played me fragments from two September 1970 shows when I met him two years ago. He also said that there is another September ’70 show which was sold to somebody in the U.K. Let’s hope that these shows will be released… The material he played was truly amazing, and pretty good sound too.

That's very interesting, thanks for sharing.

It would be fascinating to hear recordings from Elvis' first tour in well over a decade.

Let's hope they see the light of day in the next few years.

Both shows are from September 2, 1970 - so this was in Vegas, not on tour.

As I recall, he said the third one was from one day earlier.

Thanks for great news. Then Mr Boxcar have a soundboard recording of both Johnny B. Goode and his fantastic medley of Blue Suede Shoes/Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On. I love the shows from September 70 in Vegas. More fun and joy.

Thanks for the input. Maybe there was a bit of hype and exaggeration in the press releases... But I did love the "Houston" CD as it was such a special show, and it was great to discuss it here on FECC. It's rare that an Elvis release triggers so much discussions these days.

Thanks for the clarification.

Yeah, it's certainly a lot quieter than it was a few years ago, but then we've had so many great releases...

Perhaps there are few standard soundboards to release but I wonder if there are more instrument-focused soundboards out there such as that found on Echoes of Aloha and Aloha Jerry. I would definitely be interested in more of these. Although the fact that Elvis' voice is quiet is annoying, one notices the band's playing more.
