ELVIS IN VEGAS 1973 (JANUARY 26TH - FEBRUARY 23RD)

Sun Oct 16, 2011 10:12 pm

Here's the overview for Elvis' first Vegas engagement of 1973. We got 24 shows from this engagement available, so it will take a little time to complete this. In his first Las Vegas engagement of 1973, Elvis seems a little bored. I think Elvis is in good mood, but that he really wanted to be somewhere else. It's like "Hey, fellows, let's go and do the job so we can do something else". I don't say that the shows ain't good, but when the shows gets so flat, it's kind of boring for us listeners too.

January 26th 1973 Opening Show - Audience Recording with fair- sound

The opening show for this season has a setlist similar to the shows 12 days earlier, except from Sweet Caroline, Lawdy Miss Clawdy and The Stamps performance of Walk That Lonesome Road.
Elvis introduces the light heavyweight boxer Billy Fox after the Introduction Of The Band.
The sound of the recording could have been better, and the Introduction Of The Band, An American Trilogy, A Big Hunk Of Love and Walk That Lonesome Road is incomplete on the recording.

January 27th 1973 Dinner Show - Audience Recording with fair sound

Elvis seems in good mood, and delivers a quality show. He has a few funny lines like "I like to do a medley of Spanish Folk songs" and the Ed Sullivan part before Hound Dog, but otherwise he doesn't say much. The show got a little unusual start as Elvis does Long Tall Sally/Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On right after See See Rider.

Elvis gives us a straight show, going to song after song. The intro of Hound Dog gives us the impression of an Elvis in great mood. He talks and jokes for over a minute before he starts singing.

Another interesting moment in this show is when Elvis talks about his movie Elvis On Tour and when he introduces The Russian Olympic Team after An American Trilogy.
I Got A Woman/Amen is incomplete on this recording. I don't know if the new release of this show has a complete source (Under The Midnight Sun).

February 2nd 1973 Midnight Show - Soundboard Recording

It was a great experience for us concert maniacs when this show was released on soundboard. The opening theme however, is taken from the dinner show the day after. Elvis dedicates Sweet Caroline to Priscilla's mother before he goes into Steamroller Blues. Kathy Westmoreland wasn't on stage this day.
I have added the version of I'll Remember You which was released on A Legendary Performer vol. 7. It's only dated February 1973, so it is possible it is from the Dinner Show of this day.

The CD-R "The Concert Years Vol.71" is wrongly dated DS.

The shows where you didn`t list the 2001 Theme (you start with the Opening Vamp) implies that it is in fact missing. And it is correct anywhere. Well done ! The next ones please..;-)

Yes, you can put it that way, An American Trilogy has the guitar intro and Elvis singing "Oh I wish I was, in the land of cotton" then the applause afterwards. A Big Hunk Of Love has the piano intro only, then the applause afterwards. Walk That Lonesome Road has Elvis introducing the song and the piano intro, then the applause and Elvis' comment afterwards.

February 9th 1973 Dinner Show - Audience Recording with good sound

Elvis seems in really good mood and ready for a good show here. The atmosphere is totally different than earlier in this season. The introduction of I Got A Woman/Amen is real funny.
Love me has also a funny start and is very entertaining to listen to.
It's just pure excitement when Elvis starts singing Heartbreak Hotel. He even change the lyrics to "you be so sweaty, you can die" one time during the song.
If you compare Johnny B. Goode with the versions Elvis did earlier this season, man, that is like day and night....
Elvis improvise some blues before Hound Dog. I'll Remember You is sung with a reprise, and that is not often. This show is clearly one of my favorite shows from this season.
Can't Help Falling In Love is incomplete though (almost a minute of the last part is missing)

In his first Las Vegas engagement of 1973, Elvis seems a little bored. I think Elvis is in good mood, but that he really wanted to be somewhere else. It's like "Hey, fellows, let's go and do the job so we can do something else". I don't say that the shows ain't good, but when the shows gets so flat, it's kind of boring for us listeners too.


After the Aloha, I'm sure if was very difficult to mentally prepare himself for another, long Vegas stint. Nevertheless, your efforts are appreciated. Thanks again!


Thank you for your nice comments. I agree with you when it comes to after the Aloha From Hawaii show, if only they had come up with something real new for Elvis after this show, Elvis' music timeline would have been very different. I guess he was already commited to do the Vegas season..... ::rocks
