I am just curious about your opinions about those and which ones you play and why...for me it has become a hobby and more..I have all of them and I have listend to all of them..the very bad sounding ones..however...I just gave a quick spin.. :lol: ...but still I am thinking we have very good sounding AR`s which fit quite well for release .not only Vegas shows.... :wink:

A buddy of mine sent me CDRs of the Louisville shows I attended.

I gave those a spin once.

I do like many CDR titles, so I'm far away from the number you have - that's for sure. I do like some of the June '74 shows. There are also some relatively good sounding ones from August '74. Even a few from '71 are enjoyable to listen to. Do you have some personal favorites?

I have some but it's more fun to listen to when you have a nice booklet with it and if they are silver discs.

As i started well behind most fans here so when i started collecting Concert cds money was tight at the time , so the only chance i got was to get CDRS so yes i still have alot but have been replacing them with silver disc when i can, but got along way to go until all of mine are proper copies, but yes i play them alot and enjoy listening to them and as you say Cisco i have very bad ones too which can be hard to listen to but i give all of them a spin.

So far I have listen to all I got from 1969 to Jan/Feb '73. I love to listen to them, some of them have really bad sound, so you get a little bit bored when you listen to them, but I decided I would do my own collection of Elvis' shows the way I want them. I retrack them more specific, and do a little with the mixing (lower the screams from audience if that is to loud after a song, reduce some hiss from the tape etc), and I also design new covers for them so each tour or Vegas engagement gets it's own design. An example of a serie title : ELVIS ON TOUR 1971 - SEPTEMBER TOUR. The series have it's own layout with right date, pictures, tracklist with running time for each song. I really enjoy to create this series, and I think it's cool to have my own design on them. I have done the same thing for the 50's recordings with interviews, shows, recording sessions and tributes.

I listen also to AR......It's exciting to get some of the sphere and intensity Elvis created from 1969 - 1977.
Also it holds a lot of history in these sort of recordings.
I especially sit and listen to them carefully.
Make noticions of it and type it into Access.
I hope I can help you in the future with it.

Every concert has its own merits and you often make out so many things.....

I'm listening to some of my CD-Rs again now as I'm updating my list and making some notes too.
Listened to all I have once. Made a lot of notes. Took me almost 2 years to get through all of them audience and soundboards.

Now I'm making some updates and listening to some again. There are lot's of interesting moments. Even the sound is really bad sometimes.

I don't think all of them deserve CD pressing. Most of them should be available free as it's study material only.
