Elvis live, as always, was dynamic to say the least, and this excellent sample of his Feb 1970 Vegas engagement shows the new songs flooding in, whilst rubbing shoulders with classics from Elvis, plus contemporary hits from The Beatles and Creedence Clearwater Revival and Neil Diamond.
The first song "See See Rider" became the opener for hundreds of his concerts, this blues classic is attacked hard and fast, before an excellent cover of Neil Diamonds "Sweet Caroline."
"Runaway" is the Del Shannon classic, updated here, and with some wild guitar licks from James Burton; Shannon, who is in the crowd and pointed out by Elvis, must have been loving it.
"The Wonder of You" is next and it hit #1 the year this album was released. It's an all-time classic, sing along......I know that you know the words.
With "Polk Salad Annie" business really picks up with this astounding piece of Southern funk. The spoken intro, wild bass and guitar licks add to the breathtaking performance by Elvis; which, if you have seen "That's The Way It Is", you will agree is unforgettable.
"Yesterday" performed in a medley with "Hey Jude" at the end, is very good. Elvis apparently really liked "Yesterday." I recently heard Paul McCartney say that he did'nt like Elvis' version too much.
Made famous by Creedence Clearwater Revival and covered by Tina Turner, "Proud Mary" is a real classic song. And I hate to be biased, but Elvis version wipes the floor with all others. Drums and guitars here, Elvis rockin, and relishing the lyrics.... Read more ›
The banter between the audience and Elvis is enough to make this CD buyable. But not only that Elvis performs with such ease while at the same time being so brillent.
The songs included show Elvis's wide vocal range. However, I didn't enjoy the HEY JUDE/YESTERDAY and that is one song I skip by.
Elvis begins with See See Rider which is one of the best songs on this CD along side Polk Salad Annie and finishes with I can't stop loving you- again, blowing me away.
If you own an Elvis collection or are starting out get this CD!
