5.0 out of 5 stars ELVIS S-h-A-k-E-s UP NEW YORK in '72, 25 Jan. 2009
This review is from: An Afternoon In The Garden (Audio CD)
Elvis as Recorded at Madison Square Garden
In June 1972, Elvis Presley shook New York city's foundations with his famous Madison Square Garden concerts. Four shows were performed, two of which were recorded. The first live recording, entitled As Recorded at Madison Square Garden, was released about a week later (to date an unbeaten speed record I think). Thirty years later, this CD of the afternoon show is released.

Apart from being a fantastic live concert, just wait till you hear the audience react when Elvis walks out on stage. The engineers had to abruptly shut down the audience microphones so that the unbelievable deafening roar doesn't drown out Elvis and the band. Oh they didn't call him the king for nothing.

And what a performance. As good as, and many may say better than, the original 1972 release of Live At Madison Square Garden (evening show). To me, the original is just slightly more polished, but sound-wise this release is heavier and better. The tracks are almost identical but in this concert BLUE SUEDE SHOES is thrown in for fun, and Elvis includes a great rendition of his 1960 blues hit RECONSIDER BABY.

This is the legendary Elvis Presley doing what he did best. Without hesitation get it, hear it, feel it, love it.
