Living the Pain
The forthcoming release from the "SR" label is titled "Living the Pain" and will feature the unreleased show from Las Vegas February 21, 1972.

As everybody knows SR concentrates it's work on early 70's live period of Elvis' activity, trying to produce always unreleased shows with Elvis at the top of his possibilities. With the new release, we are proud to present the complete show from February 21th midnight show,a rare show from a Vegas winter season always poor of official and unofficial releases.. Elvis' love of singing is clear in this tape and we are glad to give you the opportunity to listen to it.

The midnight show from February 21th, as presented on this CD, represents just one of the best shows of the season, If we look closely at the first Vegas act of 1972 we can see that Elvis concentrates on the music to produce great shows. The in-between song chat and banter have gone and each number is delivered promptly without even a pause for applause. The 'NEW' songs introduced do reflect the mood of the man and for sure the rocking days are over but the rendition of the early seventies repertoire is solid and sung with great ability.

Talking of these new additions we see some great songs, representative of his life from this stage on. Naturally we are referring to songs such as 'You Gave Me A Mountain' which has an autobiographical theme of a man who no singing the pain, but LIVING IT and 'An American Trilogy' which demonstrates his personal beliefs and patriotic views. Elvis also worked hard to promote his new single 'Until It's Time For You To Go.' Here are also included rare performance of Help Me Make It Through The Night together the classic Bridge Over Troubled Water..

This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early season. The sound was restored in a studio to achieve best possible results. We have spent hours in the studio over the digital restoration of the sound, to achieve the best possible results and to give you the chance to hear it with pleasure.

This new CD will come in a new kind of deluxe long Digipack four panels, containing a collection of live and candid photographs from early 1972 .

Sorry, but this title is one of the strangest I ever heard. It suggests Elvis pain after the separation from Priscilla?

The shows towards the end of this gig were not bad..and this one is no exception..I hope they didn`t
use the known The Concert Years Vol. 50 cd-r source (wrongly dated Aug 21, 1972 DS) and have a new tape source....an indicator for the cd-r would be Bridge Over Troubled Water cause it is incomplete there..let`s wait and see..otherwise..thumbs up !

A better title might have been Bruised Ego.

Who comes up with these silly names? "Living the Pain", really?

Perhaps the tagline will be "of his womanising".

Perhaps they are referring to his private life..Priscilla left him and moved out of Graceland with Lisa..
only non-English can give such a silly title....Living With Pain ..would be more accurate then..

I think the title is a pun on that popular cliché "Living the dream", isn't it? Those twats on shows like X Factor use it, nobody said it when I was young. People live life, not a "dream".

Either way it's an awful title.

My thoughts exactly, actions have repercussions. Others felt pain as well.

Maybe this was the beginning of the heavy dose of painkillers so he would not have to be 'living the pain'?

Why do they say presented in a remastered CD if it hasn't been released before ?
