Cleveland June 21st 1974 recording available?

Thu Sep 23, 2010 8:16 pm

Does anyone know if this has been released yet? According to Merijn Van Der Meer this concert exists on audience recording, he knows there was a woman that recorded it and as I remember it, he can no longer locate this woman. He said Elvis did something special/different that day. It's interesting to note that the soundboard appears to be in the Sony vaults according to JAT. Has this tour been covered by FTD yet?

I have heard every time Elvis had a concert in Cleveland that he did a great job and since the Rock n Roll HOF is there, I would like to see FTD release this concert and a few others from Richfield Coliseum in the 70's, maybe in conjunction with focusing on Elvis at the HOF. Maybe in conjunction with an Elvis month celebration there or something. BMG did the same thing back when they released the 3 track HOF promo cd, I was there that night. They had the spectacular Dragon suit there during the celebration. That suit is amazing to see in person.

Elvis performed a small portion of the song Good time Charley's got the blues after let me be there; the tracklist is nearly the same as all other concerts from that time.

Quite frankly, any show from that June 1974 tour could be released and I would be thrilled. I was at both shows in Philly on Sunday, June 23, 1974. They were both terrific shows. Elvis seemed to be having a lot of fun. The shows FTD has released so far from this tour have been quite good.

I, too, am rather fond of the June 1974 tour.
