I got it a few days ago and must admit that I do think that the sound on both CDs is better than on "Love Letters From Nevada".
Unfortunately that doesn't go for the shows, but they're both entertaining and interesting and by far better than those - to say the least - mediocre shows between December 5 and 9. The dinner show is certainly highlighted by a good "Steamroller Blues" which was a request from someone in the audience. There are also good versions of "That's All Right, Mama" and "Blue Christmas". Even "Are You Lonesome Tonight" could have been a nice version, if it hadn't been trashed by Hodge once more.
The midnight show has its moments too, for example a complete sung version of "Early Morning Rain" and a straight version of "Polk Salad Annie". It's the show where Elvis told the audience that he won't sing "Steamroller Blues" ever again. Throughout a microphone check caused by the new sound system the Stamps did "Sweet Sweet Spirit".
The booklet includes some good and rare pictures in very good quality. Both CDs are picture discs. The linernotes are well written.
The shows are hardly earth-shattering, but all in all do I say that Touchdown offer a nice product that can be recommended.

The artwork of THE TENTH OF NEVER looks good, the liner notes are well written and the sound is quite good, considering that it was recorded from the audience.
During the dinner show Elvis focused on the oldies, but he also sang a good version of STEAMROLLER BLUES. During the midnight show Elvis took a lot of breaks, had the Stamps sing 1.5 songs and Shaun Nielsen did another two. But nevertheless the King sang well and performed a complete version of EARLY MORNING RAIN.
Both shows are not the greatest, but still quite entertaining.
