unfortunately this is becoming quite a problem... with good concerts not getting heard because of greedy people!~ :(

I agree, is a shame... Would love to own the last Concert, in hd on Bluray...

Even though, I feel EPE and PP dont want us to have it. As with Elvis' looks, and often monologe slurring, during this performance...

His performance of Unchained Melody, was amazing...

By the way I'm partial to the 1998 upgrade of "Adios" on Rainbow Records with a new title and a fatter booklet with notes and photos.

I just miss some of the "sweetened" applause during the introductions or final comments.
There are differences in EQ over the various iterations of that stereo AR. One in particular (I think it's Final Farewell) is very muddy in comparison.

Agreed.


Keep on Rockin'

Agree, this is sad...

With respect to the two concerts mentioned by Ton Bruins, the audience copies are in reasonably good quality and it's good that they are available in some forms for collectors. So, let the greedy hold on to the tapes and hopefully they will enjoy them sitting on the shelf collecting dust!!!
