It is an audience recording of the Dinner Show 11th August 1971.

the same show was released on the SR label titled TRYING TO GET TO MEMPHIS. it comes with an 8 page booklet and offers three bonus songs (aug 10, 71, DS): jailhouse, rock, it´s over, you´ve lost that loving feeling.

all in all it´s a keeper and i dare say it was used to spin off SHOWTIME AT THE INTERNATIONAL (which might explain the missing label!!!)

Interestingly Showtime was out months before Trying To Get To Memphis.

Is the sound quality the same on both??

oh, yes, the artwork (8 page booklet) is beautiful. it ceven ontains one or two pics of elvis in his cicsokid outfit i´ve never seen before.

and as you obviously own SHOWTIME as well i can´t wait to read your review comparing both relaeases.
