Country Hero in Vegas



The VV label will release their second CD entitled "Country Hero in Vegas" featuring the unreleased Las Vegas performances on January 30th 1971, dinner show. After the success of the first release We decided: first to improve the product and second, keeping the same formula to give you more.…..
Here We present Elvis to the begin of the season .. no surprises in the tracklist with the exception of his latest single There Goes My Everything, but the show is extremely solid and good, the sound is good and powerful using a straight copy of the original source tape, We were able to keep Elvis' vocal power central to the mix whilst at the same time giving a new definition to the supporting musicians and singers.

Elvis' performance on these early season nights is superb as he is still performing to the best of his ability. Although he delivers short shows they are delivered in a very intense, crisp and fresh manner that cannot be denied. Elvis was on stage to have fun and demonstrated this during the older, classic numbers, but songs such as 'Polk Salad Annie', 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling' and 'Sweet Caroline' never sounded better. The season will be remembered for the introduction of the new opening composition 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' which although written by Richard Strauss in 1894 was more closely associated with the Stanley Kubrick film '2001 A Space Odyssey', a recent cinema release. As we now know this thunderous opening would be used until the final concert Elvis performed. The season will also be remembered for the beautiful new closing number ‘The Impossible Dream’ which Elvis sang with power and feeling giving us proof that Elvis continued to grow as a performer.

The LP 140 VINYL GRAM is a LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 500 COPIES. It comes with an three fold 300 gram high quality GLOSSY sleeve both sides printed, giving an unique view. The sleeve will be accompanied by relevant liner notes and with many photographs of the Elvis NOW suit from the season.

This vinyl will include a bonus CD and 7” vinyl EP. In the bonus CD you have the possibility to listen the complete concert + a selection of 16 songs (32 min.)soundboard recording, coming for the previous four days shows. From the opening night January 26 you can have the possibility to listen the evolution of Elvis’ performing during the begin of the season, we practically included all the songs no performed in the January 30 DS . In January RCA released what is without doubt the best Elvis album of the 1970’s, Elvis Country. In this season of Elvis performed three songs from the album. From here the EP idea in the matter to give the possibility to use the three songs performed to create a special Elvis Country EP. The EP comes with four songs and two fold sleeve both printed.

We hope you can enjoy this second product in the way to give life to more of his kind in next future.

The tracklisting speaks for itself. So sad the bootleggers have to resort to re-hash material. The bottom of the barrel has finally arrived folks. :?

Yes they did....Elvis is showing of his "new intro tune".

Aside from that, i think it's a pretty good show.(the 30th ds date-wich is unreleased on cd)
Although "Lovin' feeling" is cut short, something he did more this season.
"Something","How great thou art"(very sincere, hardly overblown) and "There goes my everything" are outstanding versions.
"Polk sallad" is cool...
A show i surely would wecome on pressed disc.

The sound on the cdr i have is decent,above average, so....

The bonus songs are known, but they are what they are to me: bonus songs.

PS. Why the negative comments about this release?

This and the February 31 date speak for a rushed release. Unnecessary flaws.

The show itself is very good with an appealing set list. We have some interesting songs like "There Goes My Everything" or an early live version of "Something". Elvis rehearses the newly added "2001 Theme" during the intros and the show closener is "The Impossible Dream". Elvis was in a good mood and fooled around with the audience. In the further progress of the season his mood changed and Elvis became more and more bored. Let's hope they didn`t just copy the CD-R floating around cause the sound is below average being too dull with much hiss. But I am afraid they did. Their debut "Stronger Than Pride" didn`t set the woods on fire.

About that title 'Country Hero'. This is so misleading. Elvis wasn't a "country singer". His music has never been labeled as such. Yes he did sing some country, but he also did other genres throughout his shows and his career.

I'm confused: Elvis rehearses 2001 during the intros???

It's great for vinyl collectors like me. I like the sound better.

I have all that I need in the best quality possible from the January/February '71 engagement. No need to add this to my collection. This release is considered overkill & a waste of money, IMO.


Great quality releases already out there..........

It happened more than once in that Vegas season..

I don't think they were actually rehearsing the 2001 theme. Elvis was proud of it and had it played again to show it off. This happened on a few occasions during this engagement as mentioned.

Tony, how's the weather?
