I think he did "Return to Sender" much better on August 1, 1976 and trust me, as horrible that Hampton Roads show was - he actually shoots off a great version of Return to Sender.

You are right,..it was not bad..(I don`t dare saying "good"..lol..)

The live arrangement was rather good and showed that more Elvis cassics worked on stage than he himself apparently thought. That band could almost play anything and make it sound good. Elvis could sing anything and make it sound good, also. Sadly, he chose not to include many of his bonafide pop and rock classics from the 60s on stage, for reasons of laziness, lack of confidence in those songs or bad judgement, I don't know. That said, Elvis sounds absolutely horrible during this '76 show, though he isn't out of it mentally. He sounds totally s-i-c-k. I much prefer the Asheville '75 version. :)

Hampton was horrible?

Yes, Hampton '76 was. Among the worst I've ever heard him voice-wise.

He accentuates the same word "gay-o ?" as during the May 4 evening show, both of them are about 35-40 seconds long.

The source of which you are speaking is a SB (there`s no AR of this show)....we have an AR....

Re: Live Song Rarities

It`s the AR of Lake Charles, May 4, 1975 AS..thanks Patrik..!

Re: Live Song Rarities

Fri Jan 07, 2011 9:08 pm

I know.. I just noticed they're both about the same length and with the same pronounciation of the word "gay-o". Makes sense, since this AR version was recorded earlier in the same day.
