3.0 out of 5 stars Forget the bad songs and listen to the good ones!, 4 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Elvis In Concert (Audio CD)
This CD is a special one. If you are a beginning Elvis fan, then you'd better not buy this CD. You should buy his Aloha from Hawaii Special or the Comeback Special from '68 if you want a good live recording. If you are a Elvis fan for a longer period of time, then you should buy this CD! This CD has some bad songs, like Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock and the Teddybear/Don't Be Cruel medley. These oldies were sung in a uninspired mood. On the other hand, we have the songs which had a meaning for Elvis. Think about My Way (although he needs to use a piece of paper because he doesn't know the words), How Great Thou Art, It's Now Or Never or And I Love You So. Songs like That's Allright, You Gave Me A Mountain and Hawaiian Wedding Song are good as well, although he sounds a bit tired. The band introduction songs are nice (Johnny B.Goode, What i'd Say, I Really Don't Want To Know...) although i think they are far too short to be really enjoyable. For the die hard Elvis fan this is a must have, because it gives a good impression of how Elvis was on stage in 1977. Downpoint is that the recording is not always really good. Like in See See Rider, you can't hear Elvis really clearly. But one should forget the downpoints and should listen to the good songs of this album! If you do that, then it's an enjoyable album anyway.
