4.0 out of 5 stars Closing Night 3 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Elvis concert that is in two parts (2 shows). The CD is very much a 'fans' CD with Elvis' voice sounding slightly tired. Elvis is in joking mood almost throughout - deliberately inserting wrong lyrics into many of the songs or trying to 'throw' the band with his timing and then chuckling. Perhaps being present and seeing his 'antics' would be highly amusing but there is too much clowning here to allow the real power to shine through. A great plus are the inclusion of rare live recordings of songs not normally heard on his live albums ie. My Boy which are cherished. I hope there are more 'new' things to come but this is mainly for fans who wish to collect as much 'Elvis' singing as they can.

3.0 out of 5 stars If You're Looking For Trouble ...... 19 April 2008
.... you came to the right place... Yes, and this CD certainly shows Elvis in trouble.

At first play, I was shocked. Despite the presence of celebrities in the audience, Elvis is in a sTrAnGe mood and not taking the show seriously at all. Except for a few songs, he jokes and laughs his way through the entire concert. I believe this is the famous show after which Elvis is confronted by his manager Tom Parker, who is then immediately sacked by Elvis (but sadly hired back a few days later).

Despite the silly mood of the show, we do get to hear some gems, among them a live version of TROUBLE !!! I've never heard that in concert! A fantastic version at that! And listen to the interesting announcement Elvis makes in the middle of Mystery Train/Tiger Man! This is one strange concert, and unlike any other I've heard. The sound quality is more than adequate but he was playing with and singing to his band most of the time.

Some buyers have dismissed this release, but I believe we need to see Elvis from all angles - good and not so good. For those of us who were not around or too young to see him in concert, this CD is a revelation. It proves he was human, frustrated with his life and the monotony of his career as a result of being seriously mismanaged by a crooked manager. Elvis by now had done it all and, thanks to his heartless and selfish manager, was simply bored and without any new challenges.

Let's face it, he is not around to perform new concerts. So, although this show is far from Elvis' best, CLOSING NIGHT is a must for the serious fan. It may upset you but you will play this many times, mainly as a study. I have given it 3 stars for its' rarity.

Verified Purchase
There have been mixed reviews regarding this CD from Sony's Follow that Dream label which consists of two shows - Dinner (Tracks 1-7) and Midnight (8-25) - recorded at the Las Vegas Hilton on September 3rd 1973.
Having already purchased a number of FTD CD's from this era, I was looking for something that gave more of an insight into the mind of the man on stage, and this release delivers in spades!
It's been well documented that Elvis was becoming very disenchanted with the whole Vegas setup by this time (especially after the euphoria of Aloha from Hawaii just 8 months earlier) and, no doubt enhanced by the regular parties held in his suite throughout the summer season and with the pending divorce settlement to Priscilla looming large in the background, his lack of focus is very evident.
Following the obligatory 'Sprach Zarathustra' / 'See See Rider' opening, Elvis immediately halts proceedings to complain about the microphone before delivering an adequate 'I Got a Woman / Amen' combo.
'Steamroller Blues' (still relatively fresh from it's Hawaiian debut) is the first really committed performance of the night and is sung with a rawness that more than compensates for the over orchestration.
The first inkling of Elvis' dissatisfaction with the Showroom's sound system comes during 'You Gave me a Mountain' whereby, following some noticeable feedback, he inserts the line "The sound system in this hotel, will it end?" before apologising to sound engineer Bill Porter at the end.
Following 'Mountain', there's a great moment when Elvis throws both the band and the audience by announcing "We will now perform a medley of Spanish Folk songs??!!" before launching into a totally unexpected - and rare - live performance of 'Trouble'.
