Amore Elvis !

Audience Recording.....


Straight Arrow is continuing their collector's series of 2 shows from one evening, released in a single package. This time the producers have chosen two excellent performances from Saturday, March 29, 1975 at the Las Vegas Hilton.
Elvis returned to Nevada in very good form when compared to his final shows of 1974. He included several cuts from soon-to-be-released "TODAY" album rather than some of his usual oldies. Presley's shows were shorter than his previous Vegas visit in August and September because he kept banter to a minimum.
On this collection there are worthy performances of "And I Love You So", "It's Midnight", "Big Boss Man", "Burning Love" and the powerful "My Boy". There are also some rarities, like a one-liner of "Rip It Up", "Tiger Man" not performed as a medley with "Mystery Train," and "Hawaiian Wedding Song" sung exclusively by Sherrill Nielsen.
As fans have come to expect, the tapes are of very good quality, sourced from early generation copies of original cassettes recorded by the same fan. The double digipak contains liner notes and is filled with photos from the March-April 1975 engagement. As usual, these recordings have been carefully engineered to be presented in the best possible sound.

Strange thing that Straight Arrows announces the same show as Touchdown.

If "Amore Elvis" doesn't sound any better than their latest release containing the shows from December 3, 1976 than I wouldn't bet money on it.

I like the fact that SA is coupling 2 shows from the same day in one package (2 CD Digipack). I'd like to see FTD follow that format as well.

Is Now or Never from Memory still a better source for the M,S.?

One I'm surprised we haven't seen yet is a re-issue of Lake Charles 1975-5-4 A.S. & E.S.

The Memory release contained the dinner show. Therefor SA is superior in comparison to the old one from Memory, but the tape from the midnight show drones out heavily if you know what I mean. Nothing I will listen to again.

So now Straight Arrow is releasing the midnight show of March 29, 1975 as announced by Touchdown the other day? :smt017

Does the "war" spread into the bootleg world, too? Or is that just a coincidence?





PS. About the duplication of the cover shot. It's allowed to copy yourself, isn't it?
:wink:

Love that audience recordings. They are saving me so much money these days :)

And that one....
Man, you don't even have to buy it for a new cover cause you probably have it either.
Awesome.

So if both these shows are from March 29th, what date was the FTD "Big boss man" show from? If i remember correctly, they dated it wrong and many fans thought it was from the 29th.

Not bad at all sound wise. Thanks, Cisco.

I'm wondering whether the source for the Touchdown edition of the MS is the same and if... the couple heard on the DS sample is so eager to have a conversation through the whole show (hope not). :smt001

Sound is decent, but that is a very bad performance by Elvis on "I'll remeber you".
