Elvis has left the building - in style,
This review is from: Elvis In Concert (Audio CD)
After hearing about the TV special after Elvis's death, I thought this was one CD to avoid but a friend persuaded me otherwise, and they were right. This is really good.
For a man with 6 weeks or so to live he sounds enthused, interested and alert (although I'm sure some tweaking went on in the studio). This is from a man who, if the books are right, was strung out on "prescription medication" 24 hours a day.
There is a good variety of songs including Fairytale, What'd I Say and a rare live Little Sister (one of my favourites). The TCB band are also on good form. He forgets the words to some songs but who wouldn't after recording so many songs.
This is actually better than some of the FTD releases which seem to be repetitive and scraping the bottom of the barrel.
The snippets from the fans are worth a listen and the comments from his father show a man heartbroken by his son's death and would bring tears to a glass eye.
I would recommend this highly.
