4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis and Band, the concert with no audience, 30 Jan 2005
This review is from: Elvis on Tour: The Rehearsals (Audio CD)
Recorded during Elvis' mixed 72 film, "On Tour", this captures Elvis running through his live act with a stripped down band and without an audience. It sounds better than it is. Sometimes Elvis got lost in the multitude of backing singers and raucous orchestra, this sorts out that issue but Elvis is a little indifferent to the material, stopping this from being a true classic.
However, Elvis was in fine form, and when his heart was in it, as with the second half of the album, it really sores.
Elvis was in fine form at the start of 72. After an indifferent year or so, were Elvis had really struggled to find quality material, '72 started with Elvis being inundated with good new material. The three highlights get an airing here, in a stripped down version, with "Burning Love", "Always On My Mind" and the brilliant "Separate Ways" all given soulful treatment. Elvis also digs up a few songs from the previous year, which thankfully includes a fine version of "The First Time Ever". Also worth hearing is probably his best version of "For The Good Times".
A real bonus is "Young And Beautiful" from the Jailhouse rock. Elvis turns in a relax and well, beautiful rendition of what previously had been a rather obscure weepy.
