DOC, I'm not trying to be a wise guy with this question. Did Nipsey Russell open for Elvis in the era mentioned? I was unaware of that. Did he also open during the 1970 tours as well or just Las Vegas? IF it is true, then thanks. I learned something new about Elvis.

Nipsey Russell opened the Presley shows at the Sahara Tahoe in July-August 1971.


Jay Leno used to open for Tom Jones in the late 70's. When we saw Jones in Denver in 82 he had comedian George Wallace open for him.


Unfortunately, we don't need their sets for evaluating the Presley show.

It will be so crucial to hear Kahane's set ... hopefully soon.

OK, I get it.

Your hatred for Jackie Kahane is quite clear.

Re: The 1975 Las Vegas Happening - Is OUT NOW!

Track 6 is the longest of CD 1, Which is jackie kahane's act, it runs for 24 minutes

Goin back to memphis is slower then the June 10 1975 version. And the sound is quite good actually on CD 1

Re: The 1975 Las Vegas Happening - Is OUT NOW!

Tue Apr 16, 2013 2:35 pm

The sound on CD 2 is better and an improvement then back with a bang, here is a sample first about 1 minute of Back with a bang and then the same minute but this time from the new CD.
The bonus songs ARE the one's from a legendary performer

Unless I’ve missed something, "I’ll Remember You” and "Hound Dog” may still be unrelased as they did not appear on any of the "Legendary Performer” volumes from Madison.

28 Big Boss Man
29 My Boy
30 I'll Remember You
31 Hound Dog
32 An American Trilogy
33 If You Love Me ( let Me Know )


According to the Elvis In Norway site:

VOL. 5

30: My Boy (Las Vegas, March 1975)
31: Big Boss Man (Las Vegas, March 1975)

VOL. 7

27: If You Love Me (Las Vegas, March 1975) [the back cover of the actual CD states it's Spring '77]

VOL. 8

23: American Trilogy (Las Vegas, March 1975) [the back cover of the actual CD states it's August 1972]

"I was having dinner in the hotel restaurant. They told me it's customary to leave 15 to 20%. I said, 'No thanks, I always eat the whole thing."

There appears to be some crosstalk, near the end of the recording. Someone says Joe Esposito is "changing a tire."

You can't make this stuff up.

This new release devotes 24+ minutes to Jackie Kahane! Another piece of the puzzle, thank you.

It also reveals where the title comes from.

"This show, it's more than a show, it's a happening."
- Jackie Kahane, March 19, 1975 DS

it's a good deal for me, atleast 2 unreleased track, unreleased pre show (i like goin back to memphis, and the sweets) and you get the main show in a better sound then back with a bang.
