Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

The most explosive live performer ever, hits New York for his first and only concerts in the Big Apple in 1972.
This dynamaic performance is one of his very very best, exhillerating from start to finnish and brimming full of high spots.
When Elvis hits the stage with a ripping "That's Alright", the King has really arrived; and for a solid hour, never lets up.
Highlight..."Polk Salad Annie"; this is a constant highlight; every CD this song appears on, no matter whether its from 1970, 72 or 77 this is a standout.
"I Can't Stop Loving You" is also excellent; with Elvis really digging deep, and delivering, big-time.
If you like Elvis, but have never heard him live; then this is as good a start as any, compliment this with the afternoon show from the same day, "An Afternoon In The Garden."

Elvis goes through his live routine once again but with such a great voice and editing of this album you can't say it's rubbish. Because there are so many 'Live' albums I give this 8/10 as most of it you will have heard before.

Never before had Elvis, or anyone else for that matter, sounded so slick, so sharp, so exciting, and so damn good. New York was ready for Elvis Presley - but so was Elvis.

The anticipation was huge. Elvis had not appeared in the big apple since the mid fifties and sixteen years had passed since then, along with 32 movies and a string of hits. In attendance at these shows were many celebrities such as David Bowie, John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul Simon, and Art Garfunkel.

After a long wait during which the audience demonstrated their impatience with the supporting acts, Elvis bounded on stage and the audience reaction completely drowned out the otherwise thundering music. Straddling the microphone in his trademark stance, Elvis kicked off with the fastest and most exciting version of That's All Right Mama you'll ever hear. You immediately realise you're in for a special treatment.

Before the 20,000 crowd had time to recover from the first number, the band breaks into a stunning version of PROUD MARY. Elvis just ripped into it and gave it an electrifying finish. YOU'VE LOST THAT LOVIN' FEELING is just phenomenal while POLK SALAD ANNIE is a powerful measure of the man's rocking versatility - as well as the band's precise synchronisation. You can hear the audience temperature rising to fever pitch.

One song rolls into the other with so many of his former hits and more contemporary material performed flawlessly. His rendition of HEARTBREAK HOTEL blew my mind. Both Elvis and his band were on fire on this June 1972 night as he lit up the atmosphere and completely mesmerised the audience. By the time you hear the opening bars of his final song you realise you've just experienced a happening.

This Album Reflects What Elvis Was About Live Good Stuff If You Like Elvis
I Am A Musician And Have Just Started Playing In An Elvis Tribute Band And Most Of The Artist Do The Madison Square Songs Because They Are Dynamic.

This album, and possibly the 'On Stage' album are my favourite records of Elvis live. The're both records of him at his peak as a performer and are genuinely electric. While the sound quality could be better you feel the audience's excitement from the first strains of the 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' intro. Every time I hear it I wish I could have been in the audience back there in 1972. In my view this album is far superior to the more heralded 1973 'Aloha', maybe because it has more a feel of a rock show with a brilliant, blistering cover of 'Never Been to Spain': why didn't he do more songs like that? Yes, there's also a cover of 'The Impossible Dream' but it's with passion an commitment with Elvis brilliantly hitting the high notes. It might of even been a nod to the fact that he was in the hometown of the Broadway musical.

While the Madison Square Garden concerts weren't filmed for the documentary 'Elvis on Tour' most of the songs from this album were performed in the featured concerts and are from the same period. Hence, this is effectively the soundtrack for the film.

Maybe because Elvis was particularly nervous about performing in New York, feeling that they didn't necessarily get him and needing Tom Jones to remind him that he was ELVIS PRESLEY, he seems to have less banter than usual with the audience and rattles through the songs pretty quickly. It has been alleged, and subsequently denied, that Colonel Parker ordered that the mix for thi album be speeded up so that he could fit all of the songs on one vinyl disc on its original release. I'll be generous an go along with an Elvis nervous performing in front of what he felt might be a tougher audience but whatever the reason this is a stellar performance, not only for any die-hard Elvis fan but for anyone who wants to find out what all the fuss was about.

Before the summer 2001 I never listened to Elvis. However, a mutual friend introduced us, and since that time I have been enjoying this live album immensely. I believe that I listened to this album for almost three months ALL THE TIME. Until my family decided that they needed a break.
What's so great about it? It's hard to say. I think that earlier Elvis is much too polished and serious. In the 70s he obviously loosened up a bit, thus creating both hilarity and some real good swinging performances.
Introducing Elvis to my work mates in a small hotel resulted in that the CD almost got worn out to the pleasure of some and annoyance for others.
Regarding this album in particular, it is let down by poor sound quality, however the performances are great. My favourite songs appears on the later stages of the concert.
I'm looking around for even more late Elvis, it's fun and unique.
