Audience Recordings - My Picks

Thu Jun 04, 2009 8:41 pm

On dozens of occasions, I've received PMs (two this week) from different people asking my opinion on certain audience recordings. Many people do not collect them, but many, like myself, do. I have compiled a list of audience recorded concerts that I have on original factory-pressed silver CDs. I don't do CDRs in any way, shape or form, so I'm only including real CDs in my list. It is compiled mostly by those with the best sound, however, there are a few that are included because of historical significance or just downright good shows. Again, mostly because of very good sound quality. I have many, many more in my personal collection, but here is my list of some of the best. For collectors of audience recordings, you can't go wrong with any of them.

Clearly you are a late 70's fan. Not one of thos apologists are you?

Great list - lots there to search out. I love the feel of a good audience recording.

If your focus lies on the sound....it is o.k....no question..

Not necessarily true. However, there are a lot more higher quality shows (sound) from this period. I have many shows from much earlier in the decade. Unfortunately, the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired.

As I mentioned twice before, my list is based mostly on sound quality and not necessarily show quality.

Man, you must love those :60 versions of "Hound Dog."

Sounds very apologistic to me. Are you sure that you are not one of those 1976 homies who love EIC and My Boy?

I think he is mike.

And what is exactly wrong with liking Elvis In Concert or any of Elvis' later concerts? I personally like some of them, to be honest.

Learn to respect people's opinion more, my god.

Did I say that I loved Elvis In Concert? Did I say that I prefered Elvis' later concerts to 1969-1973?

You completely missed my point. Of course, everyone has to like whatever you like.

For a new member you sure sound comfortable. Welcome to the FECC Forum.

Fri Jun 05, 2009 7:57 am

Here we go again - not every post, but the percentage is rising!
Anyway, i like many audience recordings. For example the live Moody Blue is much better on the audience recording than soundboard because of the enthusiastic audience reaction.
While many people yeard for Indy '76 in soundboard, i quite like to hear the audience from the perspective that we have on the bootlegs

I actually went to the search option of this message board and typed in "best audience recordings" to see if I was still missing something or not.

A very useful post by Rob, that's a fellow that works here btw, useful because of the fact that these last couple of years we are flooded with AR and it's hard to keep track of not alone what's out there, but especially what is worthwile and what is not. It would have been nice then if some more comments would have been made about the contents of this list, whether you can add anything or think something does not belong there, what do you think of the selections, keeping in mind that it is a personal thing.

And I guess now it'll have a deserved second chance, before slipping into oblivion again. :)

Well, Rob, I’m going to comment on some of these shows. My remarks are in red inside your original post, so sorry for messing up the quote. Unfortunately, that can’t be helped.

Shiek Of The Desert - Las Vegas 2/5/70 D.S. (Krystal Records 050270) (Released 2001)

[color=#FF0040]The Memory Records release is better (International Earthquake). If you recommend one of these shows, you’ve gotta recommend the other, Have Some Fun Tonight!Both shows come in less than average sound.



Let It Be Me - Las Vegas 2/21/70 M.S. (Audiophile Records) (Released 2006)
Double Dynamite - Las Vegas 8/19/70 D.S. & M.S. (Rock Legends 1009) (Released 1998)
A Dinner Bell In Vegas - Las Vegas 8/20/70 D.S. (Memory Records MR 2038-2) (Released 2004)
A Bright Midnight With Elvis - Las Vegas 8/20/70 M.S. (Memory Records MR 2037-2) (Released 2004)
You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’- Las Vegas 8/21/70 M.S. (Audionics 2001-01) (Released 2001)

I’m shocked that you don’t mention On the Road Again (Memory Records). That concert is sensational, and the sound is outstanding.

A Thunder In The Night - Lake Tahoe 8/1/71 M.S. (SR Records SR 3505-2) (Released 2006)
Trying To Get To Memphis - Las Vegas 8/11/71 D.S. (SR Records SR 3502-2) (Released 2005)
No Fooling Around - Las Vegas 8/4/72 O.S. (Ampex CD 001) (Released 2003)
The Spirit Of Sin City - Las Vegas 8/13/72 M.S. (Memory Records MR 2054-2) (Released 2007)
Red Hot In Vegas - Las Vegas 8/23/72 M.S. (Straight Arrow SA 2006-5-02) (Released 2006)
Not Too Sweet - Las Vegas 9/1/72 M.S. (SR Records CD SR 3503-2) (Released 2005)
Walk That Lonesome Road - Las Vegas 9/4/72 C.S. (P.O. 220 Records) (Released 2006)

King of the Neon Jungle should be mentioned too. It’s way better than some of the 1972 shows listed above. No Fooling Around comes in less than average sound, but it’s noticeable better than Another Opening Night (same show, different source).

A New Live Experience - Long Beach, CA 11/15/72 (MAC 24.158) (Released 1993)
Swing & Swirl Your Hips Again - San Bernardino, CA 11/13/72 (S&S 11372) (Released 2006)
Kicking And Rolling - Las Vegas 2/18/73 M.S. (Straight Arrow SA 2007-6-02) (Released 2007)
What Now My Love - Las Vegas 2/23/73 C.S. (X-Entertainment) (Released 2005)
At The Top Of The Game - Phoenix, AZ 4/22/73 (Memory Records 2052-2) (Released 2006)
Storm Over Portland - Portland, OR 4/27/73 (Live Archives 1010/1012) (Released 1991)

The Memory Records release (Shining in Portland) is much better than the Live Archives title. Also, Turning Up the Heat in Las Vegas is a decent show in good sound.

Grand Roulette At The Sahara - Lake Tahoe 5/6/73 M.S. (MR 2057-2) (Released 2009)
High Sierra Fever - Lake Tahoe 5/7/73 M.S. (Straight Arrow SA 2007-7-02) (Released 2007)

High Spirit In Vegas - Las Vegas 9/2/73 M.S. (Vegas Strip VS 1973-01-2) (Released 2008)

Raised on Vegas comes in less than average sound. The show is great, though, and the setlist pretty rare. A Change of Mind could be mentioned too. Good sound.

Something Old, Something New - Las Vegas 1/26/74 O.S. (Memory Records MR 2028-2) (Released 2002)

Elvis At The Forum - Los Angeles 5/11/74 Mat. (Graceland Records 7403-2) (Released 2007)

The first title is great and should be hunted down. The second sounds dull, like it was recorded through a brick wall, clearly one of the weakest Memory Records releases from an audio perspective. That’s what happens when they use a 20th generation copy of a fifth generation copy of an early generation copy of the master tapes (or something like that). The Keep the Fire Burning and El in El Paso soundboards suffer from the same problem. The Forum show comes in less than average sound.

Great list. Only i cant agree with When Elvis Comes Marching In - Chicago, May 1, 1977. The sound is far from good.

I have the Lincoln 1977 on cd released by P.O. 220. Never heard of the label Sanfi. The rlease i have is not the best quality.

No Fooling Around - Las Vegas 8/4/72 O.S. (Ampex CD 001) (Released 2003)

King of the Neon Jungle should be mentioned too. It’s way better than some of the 1972 shows listed above. No Fooling Around comes in less than average sound, but it’s noticeable better than Another Opening Night (same show, different source).


Can't agree at all. I'd say the sound is very good being sourced from an audience recording of the show. It is much better than on many other titles both you and Rob list. Too bad it is not complete as Another Opening Night, though complete, is sonically inferior - no doubt about that. Just my two cents. :smt001

Re: Audience Recordings - My Picks

Sat Mar 06, 2010 7:30 pm

That opening night show comes with pops and clicks and tape speed problems, maybe even flanging sounds. The sound quality is acceptable if we look beyond this, but the tape drag ruins several songs.

I wasn’t aware that the second source is complete, whereas the first one isn’t. On the other hand, I haven’t listened closely to those CDs in ages, and now I don’t have them in my possession anymore. What’s the difference in contents?

On "No Fooling Around" The Wonder Of You, Introductions and An American Trilogy are missing but the bonus cuts make up for it nicely.

I listened to the show the other day and will stick to what I've said before. It's a very enjoyable show with very good sound. The pops and the clicks are hardly noticable and the dragging is more a problem of the bonus section and not the main show.

Ain't it funny how time slips away ? Threads like this one have more of an ongoing value, that is beyond the mere topical ones, because each year brings one or more fine additions or even replacements of existing releases, and everybody who isn't categorically against AR, should take notice, it's an Elvis community after all.

Together with Ken's suggestions, we have a total of 80 different quality AR releases, give or take a few. Wow. :shock:

Re: Audience Recordings - My Picks

Sun Mar 07, 2010 3:46 pm

you have to add

On The Road Again - Portland 11/11/70 (MR 2038-2) (Released 2004) - Great sound and from the second tour from which we have no soundboards. Essential.

Better Than Ever - Miami 9/12/70 ES (MR 2050-2) (Released 2006) - Great show, OK sound and from the first tour from which we have no soundboards. Essesntial

Houston Astrodome - Houston 2/28/70 ES (CD-R) - Great show, distand sound. Features Kentucky Rain and Long Tall Sally Instead of Blue Suede Shoes and One Night which is played on the other houston shows. Again, no soundboards available from this tour. First Non-Vegas shows. Essential

White Herring In Vegas - Las Vegas 8/26/69 MS (CD-R) - Probably the best sounding audience fom 1969. Excellent show.

Tender Touching Moment - Las Vegas 8/27/69 DS (CD-R) - Incomplete 1969 show but a very odd songlist. It's Now Or Never, Loving You, One Night, Love Me, Baby What You Want Me To Do (incomplete), Runaway (incomplete)

All Up To Elvis - Las Vegas 2/10/72 MS (CD-R) - Excellent show featuring two rare songs I'm Leaving it Up To You and Help Me Make It Through The Night

Who Shot Me - Chicago 6/17/72 ES (CD-R) - Unusual setlist including the only 1972 version of Something

The Concert Years Vol 27 - Las Vegas 8/7/72 MS (CD-R) - Good show featuring the first known version of Steamroller Blues and the only one before the Aloha show

Elvis Does It Again - Las Vegas 8/18/72 DS (CD-R) - Great show featuring the only How Great Thou Art of the 1972 August Season

Explosion In Vegas - Las Vegas 8/17/72 MS (Sabam TM Boum 001) - Excellent show

Las Vegas Swirling - Las Vegas 9/1/72 DS (CD-R) - Very good Sound

King Of The Neon Jungle - Las Vegas 9/3/72 3AM (MR 2030 2) (Released 2003) - Very good sound

-to be continued...-

Re: Audience Recordings - My Picks

Sun Mar 07, 2010 5:02 pm

Voldto, please don’t continue. Rob said no CD-Rs, and I’ve gotta agree with him. Besides, I’ve already mentioned two of the titles you list. The Better Than Ever release comes in atrocious sound. That’s why it’s not included. The August 26, 1969, midnight show has been released on multitrack.

Please read the original post properly before you post. Thanks!
