5.0 out of 5 stars A more personal show than that of the televised live concert, 17 Oct. 2003

This review is from: Alternate Aloha (Audio CD)
Elvis' comeback concert in Hawaii in January 1973 was for many, many years the most watched special in television history. The Alternate Aloha provides listeners and fans with a recording of the live dress rehearsal for that performance on January 12, and being able to hear this unusual live show is something special. It may not be Elvis at his best, but it more than adequately proves that The Big E still had in the later stages of his career. The girls scream just as loud as those who would see the actual show the following night, nobody seems to care when Elvis forgets some of the words to Burning Love's chorus, and you are left knowing beyond the shadow of a doubt that Elvis had most certainly been there when you hear the announcement that Elvis has left the building. I think there is also a more personal nature to this recording than to his televised concert, particularly when he tells the audience about the upcoming live show and seems to seek some reinforcement from his fans to conquer a bit of nerves.
Along with this classic live dress rehearsal recording, you also get three recordings from late, late recording sessions: Blue Hawaii, Hawaiian Wedding Song, and KU-U-I-PO. There are significant amounts of down time, discussions about the tracks, and a little bit of fooling around in these three tracks, offering yet another revealing glimpse at the true Elvis Presley. Even if you own the actual televised concert, I think The Alternate Aloha is more than worthy of any Elvis fan's attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAWAIIN STYLE, 9 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Alternate Aloha (Audio CD)
THIS IS THE DRESS REHEARSAL/WARM UP CONCERT FOR ELVIS' 1973 SPECTACULAR ALOHA FROM HAWAII SHOW.
ALOHA WAS SEEN LIVE ON TV BY 1.5 BILLION PEOPLE IN 40 COUNTRIES AND IN TURN BECAME A MASSIVE MULTI PLATINUM SELLING ALBUM.
THIS WARM UP CONCERT IS JUST AS GOOD, MAYBE BETTER BECAUSE ELVIS IS VERY LOOSE.

4.0 out of 5 stars The CD of the Alternate Aloha is missing 2 tracks that were on the cassette tape, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alternate Aloha (Audio CD)
This CD is ok but it is missing two of the songs from the original cassette. If I Could Dream is just about one of the finest songs the King ever performed and for some reason it was left off of the CD!
