5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Full Asking Price For 'Danny Boy' Alone, 21 Mar 2013
This review is from: Tucson '76 (Audio CD)
An excellent example of Elvis live in the seventies, on this particular CD he is in great form, in a great mood, with plenty of witty chat with the crowd and band, throwing a few surprises in here and there.

As a soundboard recording, it's a 10/10. The artwork is attractive too. Understated, but not too much. It's a beautiful presentation.

These FTD CD's are very expensive and no doubt many simply aren't worth the outlay*, but this one is top-drawer. The improvised, yet accomplished version of Danny Boy is really worth buying this album for. Elvis pours his heart into it, and it's such an honest rendition. You can almost sense the admiration from the other band members as Elvis makes the old Irish folk song his own, live on stage, and unplanned.

There is also a rare version of Help Me Make It Through The Night on here; other highlights include Hurt, You Gave Me A Mountain, and Burning Love.

You'll also notice one girl in the crowd who had a scream like nothing else you've ever heard - Elvis couldn't help but acknowledge her glass-shatteringly high-pitched squealing, if only to shut her up!

*Why on earth haven't FTD CD's been made available for download at a reduced price?!! That would well and truly finish off the bootleggers!
