Hmmm the 1974 show sounds pretty awful sound quality to me. the Sept 1972 show sounds much better, but still not that great. :?

Happy New Year, Cisco! That's great detective's work pinpointing the exact date. However, I need to correct you a little bit. The official opening show was released on FTD's I Found My Thrill (incorrectly dated as the January 27 DS; it should be January 27 OS). Memory Records released the January 26 DS (not OS).

Since Frank Sinatra returned to performing in Vegas on January 26, Elvis decided to postpone his opening show and instead perform two regular shows on January 26 (dinner and midnight). There was only one show on January 27 (official OS). Just to clear up the confusion. Or perhaps adding to it.

I recorded 4 of the Lisa Marie Presley shows i was at back in 2003, i wonder if they will ever be in demand years from now, eh, ya never know.

I would hang on to them,there are a lot of Lisa Marie fans out, more that most think for whatever reason
rather it be her music or because she's ELvis daughter ect.
and in the collection-world you are right,you just never know!

Wasn't Marty Panseta present only during January 26, 1974 DS ? Is it possible that Something Old, Something New is from January 26, 1974 MS and Back On Track in Vegas from January 26, 1974 DS?

You have a source..?

During the DS at the beginning Elvis makes a remark "Me and Old Blue Eyes are back"....I have to check where.....acc.to "Did Elvis Sing In Your Hometown, Too" book.

On the Memory Records release Something Old, Something New dated January 26, 1974 OS Elvis exactly makes this remark about Old Blue Eyes and him being back. That matches the article in the book. Elvis also says during the beginning of the show that he had 5 months off. He introduces Jack Lord who was sitting in a booth with Linda Thompson and Sammy Shore among others. The date is not quite correct since it was the DS of the day. The real opening 10 pm night was one day later. But there is no mixing up of dates. The info about Marty Pasetta attending the DS must be wrong. It was the MS.

Does someone have the Elvis Monthly from March 1976 ? Apparently there's an article about it.
