Once again BMG/RCA deliver the goods, with yet another first class box set dedicated to the King.
I can't recommend this set enough. This is the only release that really highlights how good Elvis was live.
Here we are treated to not only some exceptional music, but the King as he really was, giving 100% to the audience whilst joking, laughing and interacting with those lucky fans.
The highlights; disc 1 is a cracker, raw and gutsy as he returned to the live stage, delivering breathtaking performances of classic songs both his and others (Beatles, Del Shannon).
Disc 4 is my favourite, and as it says in the liner notes; Elvis 1974 Vegas engagements were considered among the very best concerts he ever gave. Just listen to the amazing delivery of "How Great Thou Art" or "America the Beutiful" or the rocking "Burning Love" and "Promised Land.".
Also on disc 4 check out JD Sumner and the Stamps perfromance of the gospel classic "Why Me Lord.". Elvis does something to make JD laugh, ruining the song and causing a comotion as the whole place bursts into fits of laughter......fab, just fab.
