Gravel Road Music announces next release

Tue Mar 29, 2011 10:25 pm


Gravelroad Music (GRM) returns with yet another great package like ELVIS: GOOD TO BE BACK, this time it's SPANISH EYES: BY REQUEST, Elvis live at the Sahara Tahoe in May 1974. This absolutely excellent tape, from the Friday, May 24, 1974 MS, was the very first available soundboard recording from Lake Tahoe, released in 1995 by Fort Baxter. At this show Elvis was heard taking a personal request for "Spanish Eyes," not something he did too often...

Now the performance is presented by GRM at the correct speed, with improved sound and in a super-deluxe package. Along with a booklet filled with Tahoe '74 facts, photos and detailed liner notes, there is also a reproduction of the rare May 1974 Sahara Tahoe reservation postcard with the color photo of Elvis on back, and another menu-sized, "Your Personal Invitation" card with the invite on the flip-side. Both of these collectables are very hard to find, and suitable for framing.

GRM would like to consider this YOUR personal invitation to the May 24, 1974 midnight show at the SAHARA TAHOE. For new fans the show will be a thrill and for longtime fans, an absolute rediscovery. This show captures Elvis being happy and giving his best.

Here is the track list: 01. C. C. Rider 02. I Got A Woman / Amen 03. Love Me 04. Tryin' To Get To You 05. All Shook Up 06. Love Me Tender 07. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me 08. Hound Dog 09. Fever 10. Polk Salad Annie 11. Why Me Lord (with reprise) 12. Suspicious Minds 13. Introduction of singers, musicians, orchestra 14. I Can't Stop Loving You 15. Help Me 16. Bridge Over Troubled Water 17. Let Me Be There 18. Spanish Eyes 19. Big Boss Man 20. Funny How Time Slips Away 21. Can't Help Falling In Love 22. Closing Vamp

Approximate running time: 62:00
All tracks are 24-bit restored and remastered for a fresh, high fidelity sound.

On some other topic people were complaining about the cover art, but it looks OK to me.

Looks pretty cool. I just got "Hilton's All Shook Up" and "Continues at Full Blast". Pretty happy with both CDs. I still have to find a copy of Return Of A Prodigy though :(
