August 1970 and Elvis was at the top of his game. Here you have the complete show of the opening night in Las Vegas.
Though some of the released shows from this season are longer and better what you get here is a great show in great sound quality and I recommend it highly

One of the most commendable releases by the Follow That Dream label, featuring Elvis Presley's opening night concert in Las Vegas on August 10, 1970. With the previous release of other concerts from this stint ("That's The Way It Is", "Live in Vegas" box sets) this CD might have long lost its originality, but definitely not its impact.
Several songs were performed here live for the first time ("Something", "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "I Just Can't Help Believing", "I've Lost You", "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling") and with the Joe Guercio Orchestra making its debut on this occasion even the familiar songs received new arrangements. The band is superb and Elvis' performance belies the often repeated remark that Vegas was an artistic non-event. Among the highlights of this CD are the opening "That's Allright", "Mystery Train/Tiger Man", "Polk Salad Annie" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". A true live rarity is "The Next Step is Love".
The sound is great, the mix excellent. With five rehearsal cuts in slightly lesser sound quality this CD runs over 72 minutes. Highly recommended.

This is really an outstanding FTD release. It has fantastic sound to the point that it could have just been recorded. I have yet to hear anything from 1970 that Elvis sang that can be criticized; everything is stellar, and this is an absolutely stellar performance with some great songs (quality and content) to capture the total live experience with the King, of course, in his prime!

Here we have another concert from August 1970 that sits along side the new That's The Way It Is box set and DVD.
RCA/BMG have released a wealth of material from TTWII, this, the box set plus another concert on the Live in Las Vegas set and a book with CD.
Its a pity that more footage has not be released, as once again we are treated to a stunning live performance.
