Bicentennial King, Volume 2

http://www.elvisnews.com/images/coverar ... king-2.jpg

The relatively new label Millbranch Music has its second release out by the end of September 2010. This will be a factory pressed cd limited to 500 copies with an 8 page booklet containing lots of photos and different original 1976 Seattle newspaper articles from before and after the concert. The sound is quite good for an audience recording and Elvis is delivering a fine show, being in good spirits.

I'm all over it. My collection is running a little short of 1976 shows. I just received the new Seattle 1970 release today.

I wonder which one will be better.

When will this endless barrage of mediocre '76 AR re-re-releases ever stop ? Not only the bootleggers have scraped the barrel, but have dug a huge hole at the bottom. :x

It isn`t a re-release. It´s the first time you get this show on silver disc..I`d say there are worse shows in 1976..I invite you to listen to the CD-R.... :wink:

Seattle 4/26/76 ES

If the sound is as good as on Vol 1 of this series, it will be a very welcome release .

Here's hoping.

Sounds like a good show in O.K. sound quality. Rare 1976 (funny) version of My Way.
Should be a worthwhile release. I have nothing from this tour,other than the America FTD.

That is true. I was pleasantly surprised at not only the sound quality, but also by Elvis' performance.

It was a worthwhile purchase.

Better than that, I consider it a great release.

Fantastic atmosphere, wonderful show....and I never would have purchased it had it not been for a recommendation from you...thanks truly.

It's actually one of my favourite shows....turn the lights down, crank up the volume....and you are THERE.

From this tour of 8 shows 6 are available (incl.CD-R)..two of them now on import..
California Wave (Long Beach April 25, 1976 ES) is the show right before the one in question.
The tour belongs to the better ones of this year with quite appealing setlists..similar to Tahoe this year...
