The impression is meant to be a easy going informal 'jam', but it all sounds just plain lazy. Elvis aborts the first song half way through to joke about the concept of the 'big start' and never really gets started.
Elvis sounds breathlessly, his focus is all over the place and his inclination to resort to yelling is disturbing. "Softly As I Leave You" misses the mark, "Love Me" and "All Shook Up" are lazy and pointless, and "America" is as bad as anything Elvis recorded, portentous and overblown and at times - lets be honest - tuneless!
Why did I buy it? I recently purchased the Memphis gig from '74 and it was great, full of life and power and fun. Where did it go indeed...
So why two stars? "And I love You So" is good, "Wooden Heart" is a bit of fun and he makes a good fist at "Tiger Man" and "Blue Christmas"... god bless him!
