A show with a very standard setlist. Elvis introduces Johnny Tillotson after the band introductions. Typical for this season is that Elvis seems in good mood, but he's talks very little so the times he had some funny comments is very rare. Here he shows it during the start of Hound Dog. Both Hound Dog and A Big Hunk Of Love is worth listening too here.
The Last part of Brigde Over Troubled Water and the beginning of Suspicious Minds is missing on this recording. The recording itself is a little distant, but not too bad.

On my source Suspicious Minds is complete. The 2001 Theme is missing and the Closing Vamp is incomplete. Please note that we had this show back in 1976 on a 2 LP set called "The Vegas Years 1972-1975" (LP1) and 1979 on a re-issue called "Guitar Man". This show once was wrongly dated with "DS". But Elvis did It`s Over in the DS (see multi track recordings). Since it is missing here it must in fact be the MS.

A version that has Suspicious Minds complete is new to me. As you can see, the 2001 Theme and the Closing Vamp is incomplete on my source too, so I guess is the same recording, but different edited. Also thankful for the information about the vinyl bootleg issues.

A good standard show from this season, it's not much more to say about this show (see tracklist). He uses the "Before I Kick Your A**" line during Don't Be Cruel in this show also. Elvis introduces actress Cher Wills during the show. I haven't been able to find more about her, so I really need some help here.

This show has some small highlights for us jumsuit junkies, Elvis sings Help Me Make It Through The Night and talks a little bit during the show. He fools around with the slow part of Hound Dog, and goes seriously into a very fast tune in this version following up with a fast and raw A Big Hunk Of Love. The Introduction Of The Band is entertaining too.
The tape runs a little fast in the beginning of the show, and sound could be better though. The first part of Bridge Over Troubled Water is missing.

February 22nd 1972 Dinner Show - Audience Recording with Good sound

This is one of my favorite shows from this season. Elvis sings one line of Carry Me Back To Old Virginia and a verse of Hawaiian Wedding Song during this Dinner Show. Michael Caine is introduced after the Introduction Of The Band. You Gave Me A Mountain gets a false start and Elvis starts from the beginning of the song again. Elvis sings Hound Dog only in slow version in this show and An American Trilogy has a very funny start. At the top of this, Bridge Over Troubled Water gets a very impressive treatment (and it's a long version too). The announcement at the end of the show is incomplete.

Nice to finally have a date to go with the Vegas Years vinyl. It was one of the first bootleg LPs I acquired.

The Closing shows (and the Opening shows) is always more exciting to analyse than the rest of the shows. The recording of this show is not the best, but at least we got it. The sound is a little distant and there's some hiss to it. The sound improves much right after the flute solo of An American Trilogy and further on (different recording??) Suspicious Minds is incomplete because of the tape switch during the recording.
It seems by the sound of the audience that Elvis is fooling around a bit during Don't Be Cruel. During the start of Bridge Over Troubled Water, it sounds like there's is a dog barking in showroom??
After the Introduction Of The Band, Elvis introduces "...a good friend of mine and actor...". I haven't been able to understand the name of this person, so if someone has, let us know. Afterwards he introduces Vernon, Col. Parker and Priscilla. He also introduces The Rambos, a very popular gospel group from Dawson Springs, Kentucky.

Elvis is starting the circus with a See See Rider in full drive, follow by a new song for the season, Never Been To Spain. He welcomes the audience and introducing himself as Howard Hughes. You Gave Me A Mountain is beautifully treated when he does it in the front of an audience for the first time and Elvis' new record Until It's Time For You To Go is following right after. Polk Salad Annie is done without the talking intro this time.
It's a very lighthearted Elvis who sings the ol' ones here, Love Me, Little Sister/Get Back, All Shook Up, Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel, Hound Dog (Elvis sings the words "Oh, God have Mercy........" in the start of Hound Dog), A Big Hunk Of Love and a great Lawdy Miss Clawdy. After Lawdy Miss Clawdy we hear performs An American Trilogy for the first time ever.
Elvis introduces Sammy Davis Jr. and somone else (haven't been able to find out who, really Need some help here) during Can't Help Falling In love.
The recording of this show starts a few seconds into See See Rider, so the 2001 Theme, Opening Riff and the first seconds of See See Rider is missing.

A good standard show from this season, it's not much more to say about this show (see tracklist). He uses the "Before I Kick Your A**" line during Don't Be Cruel in this show also. Elvis introduces actress Cher Wills during the show. I haven't been able to find more about her, so I really need some help here.

The 2001 Theme is missing and the Closing Vamp is incomplete. Just to point this out again.


No surprises? No talking? Not hardly. My mom attended this show and during Suspicious Minds she was called up to the stage by Elvis while she was wearing her Elvis outfit and was kissed by Elvis. Probably one of the first shows to acknowledge a female Elvis impersonator eh? The soundboard would probably reveal more talking if it exists. :wink:

You can hear the lady yell "They're gonna call her uuuuup..." in this audience recording.

Well,.this must have been one surprise... :lol: .....all in all Elvis wasn`t very talkative during this gig and rushed from song to song..but seeing him and his show act surely is a totally different experience
than just listening to a mediocre sounding AR of it.....
