Ladies and Gentlemen..I`d like to start with Crying Time..rarely performed ..I think we only have two other version from August 1970 in Vegas...but this one featured here is by far the longest. He also rehearsed it during the shooting of TTWII. If you have specific requests for rarities..please put them in our request box.

Crying Time (12.8.1973 MS)

The next is Memphis Tennessee as sung in Asheville, July 22, 1975 ES.
The show is one of the best I have ever heard...pity the sound is not the best.

A fan sent me this little story about the Asheville show..

I saw your post about "Memphis" being sung on July 22, 1975. I was on front row for this show. This is my girlfriend giving Elvis a red phone. He is also reading a note from her telling him she had just gotten back from Vegas and how much she enjoyed the show. He stood up and walked around with the phone and was singing "Memphis." It's the recording of "Memphis" you posted on FECC

The next one is Sweet Inspirations. He did it the only time in Las Vegas, August 20, 1970 DS. It was a hit for his vocal backing group back then.

It's a shame he didn't do the entire song.

His Latest Flame (L.V., September 3, 1971 MS)

I don't think he did that song in 1973.

You could have avoided that if you had taken a look at this website:

:wink:

I agree the 3 Asheville shows were tremendous, his voice sounds so incredibly good and flexible, it's almost unbelievable he could still pull this off, plus the band's on fire as well. He felt he had something to prove, a feeling I get as well, for the last time, when listening to the late December '76 shows...

That's one of my favorites, he sings it so pretty.. The amount of rarities on soundboard is obviously very meager compared to the amount we have on audience recorded tapes.
Still, I think Ernst should include some of them where possible within future SB releases, their sonic quality may differ, but their historical and musical importance often merits inclusion.

One of the most famous "rare live songs"....just lean back and get the goosebumps..

You'll Never Walk Alone (Uniondale, July 19, 1975 ES)

Re: Live Song Rarities

The next one is I, John..from Lake Tahoe..he also sang it the day before our version here.. a few times as a one liner and during the shooting of Elvis On Tour.

Which concert tour you regret the most that there isn't a soundboard available from, Cisco, the July '75 tour or the April '73 tour ? :)

To me, the '75 tour, because the '73 tour has some very decent AR already..

Re: Live Song Rarities

Wed Nov 17, 2010 11:30 pm

Agreed,.. soundboard from Uniondale, Norfolk or Asheville 75 would be something for me.. :wink:
