THE BICENTENNIAL KING VOL. 5
Introducing the fifth release on a label by the name of MILLBRANCH MUSIC here is another complete performance by Elvis Presley in the year of 1976. This time we chose to release a complete recording of Elvis´ performance from May 6, 1976. This very long show (more than 90 minutes) would not fit on one cd so this release simply has to be a 2 CD set.
Out by December 7, 2012 this will be factory pressed, limited to only 300 copies with an 8 page booklet containing lots of photos and information regarding Elvis´ last concert series in Lake Tahoe. The sound is very good for an audience recording and Elvis is delivering a decent show with some rare songs, being in good spirits. This concert has NOT been released yet on factory pressed cd. All you fans out there know what to expect from Elvis´ 76 Lake Tahoe performances - so if you are interested be advised to get your copy as soon as you can.

I`v been wondering for ages why this show hadn`t been released on silver disc..
One of the best shows from this gig with many rarities and Elvis being in a
good mood. A highlight from this time....
We have 2 sources on cdr..one in a bit better sound and slightly incomplete during
the intros..the other one a hair worse and complete..
The source here seems complete and the sound should be fine, too as I have heard.
A true gem from 1976..looking forward to it.... ::rocks

One wonders just how much "Aloha" director Marty Pasetta was shocked at the change in Elvis from only three years prior.

What we hear are some songs done well, some indifferently and some very poorly. It's 1976 -- fun times!

Anyway, rock on. Your knowledge is always appreciated and welcome.

I have the other releases from this series and I have been more than satisfied with the quality of all of them.

For what it's worth.

Finally a better sounding (I hope) recording of this great show, the sound sucks big time on the CD-r's. I always wanted to hear this one in good quality and cant wait to hear Cryin in The Chapel!

Perhaps you have a x-generation copy..if you have one closer to the original..the sound is better...

Thanks Rob.

I thought Vol 1 was great but Vol 2 was disappointing as far as the sound quality goes. (Haven't heard the others).

Re: Bicentennial King Vol 5

Wed Nov 21, 2012 1:08 am

Now that you mention it, I do remember volume 2 not being up to par. Especially when compared to the good sound and very surprising performance from Elvis on volume 1.
