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

5.0 out of 5 stars VIVA LAS VEGAS 22 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright Lights City Gonna Set My Soul On Fire 7 Mar 2002
By J. Kerr
Format:Audio CD
Elvis and Las Vegas are almost synonymous, yet all too many percieve Elvis "decline" with his years in Vegas........not true.
This is a fabulous set, although a tad dissapointing; no songs from 73 or 76, not enough rarities and too many songs that have been released before. That said, this is worth every penny, disc 1 & 4 are very special indeed, with disc 2 being almost a continuation of "That's The Way It Is."
So what do we have? Definately a set for not merely the Elvis fan, but essential for any fan of great music, from, of course, the greatest.
Starting with the packaging; it's great, quite like a book with CDs inside, just like the "Platinum: A Life In Music" set, with 90+ tracks, over 50 are unreleased.
Starting with a concert from 1969, this is stunning. Absolutely Elvis at his finest, pure rock 'n' roll, almost like a mix between the "68 Special" and "That's The Way It Is." Songs like "Jailhouse Rock" and "Heartbreak Hotel" sparkle with attidute, like the 50s all over; whilst new hits like "Suspicious Minds" and "In The Ghetto" are breathtaking, then and now.
Disc two treats us to another show from August 1970 and "TTWII"; Elvis is more polished that a year previous, still rockin hard, but now with the big time show-stoppers like a mesmorising "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "I Just Can't Help Beleivin'" almost steal the show from the likes of the legendary "That's Alright" and a really beautiful version of thr Beatles "Something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential collection of Elvis' Vegas years 14 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a superb compilation of tracks spanning nearly 20 years of Vegas appearances from the 50s to 70s. Understandably, RCA have picked the cream of the crop (there must be hours and hours of horrendously bad and flawed performances somewhere in the RCA vaults) for this 4cd set, and as such, it's all of a very high musical standard, although it should be noted that a few of the recordings are far from perfect quality. However, this is irrelevant - Elvis' voice is near flawless, and he is in fine spirits throughout - chatting and joking with band and audience and taking time out to introduce songs (the start to Polk Salad Annie is superb). For virtually all of the songs you can hear he is totally into the performance - unlike "Aloha From Hawaii" for instance. With over 50 unreleased tracks, this is an essential purchase for any Elvis fan, although at 90+ tracks in total, it could be overlong as an introduction (albeit the best one available) to Elvis' live work for new fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars FOR LIVE FANS EVERYWHERE 10 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Hi,
Iv just purchased this box set and all i can say is if you like listening to Elvis (live) then this is the cd set you need. Its got different versions of his best material, you can hear how he changes his performance over the years.Theres tracks on here that you thought you would never here LIVE, for instance MY BOY, DONT CRY DADDY AND KENTUCKY RAIN. All i can say is go get it if your a live listening fan. It comes in a nice booklet packaging with info on all the recordings i.e (Date and year of show)and nice colourful CDs. Well thats about all i can say just GO BUY IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars when god wore a jump suit 7 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Forget the mythe of the tacky,bloated las vegas elvis, the bloated was only the last four years anyway, listen to a singer at the top of his game. He had the audience in the palm of his hand from start to finish. The only downside is he did not vary his sets nearly enough.
How many acts today could perform without dance sets, laser light shows and backing tracks?
SIT BACK TURN THE VOLUME UP AND FEEL THE HAIRS ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK STAND UP WHEN 2001 BEGINS.
Forget the tabloid headlines of overweight and over the hill and listen to that voice.
live in Las Vegas indeed. Awesome.
