I would like information on what, in your opinion, are some of the worst sounding Elvis bootleg/import CD's out there? Thanks.

I hope this question is not in violation of the one CD/one thread rule, I didn't know where else or how else to ask this question?? I guess maybe instead of posting to the thread send me a private message with your picks. Thanks!

The only boot I have is 'Hot Time In Miami', actually recorded in Hollywood, Florida a little north of Miami at the Hollywood Sportatorium. One Elvis' last appearances on the '77 tour. I haven't spun it in a while, but from what I recall it sounded pretty bad.

Hello,welcome to the forum,
The worst live bootleg i've heard is probably 'Heading for Tulsa' from July 4th 1976, Tulsa/Oklahoma 2:30 pm show. Elvis is barely audible, which is a shame because the setlist that night was good with the rare inclusion of an American trilogy for 1976.

There are so many bad sounding bootleg CD's out there, it would be pointless singling out just a few. If you are new to collecting it would perhaps be better to highlight the best imports available, rather than the other way around.

Below would be a great starting point.

The audience of Indy 77 is one of the worst I have heard!

This was back on the cassette days and was audience recording.

Im not sure if a better audience recording of the last show exists or not...

The Touchdown cd "Summertime '73" has horrible sound... its a great show, but the recording kind of ruins it.

Audience recordings of Columbus 74, Wichita '76 and Cleveland 75 are the worst I recall hearing.
