4.0 out of 5 stars Auld lang syne, 26 Feb 2004
This review is from: New Year's Eve (Audio CD)
This is a pretty cool release. Recorded bootleg by one of the audience, its been restored pretty well. Not like studio quality but what can you expect. Its interesting to hear the audience go wild over this guy who was supposedly really bad in concert toward the end of his life. As one of the audience says "he looked at me" - swoon!
Elvis takes a while to get into the groove. He sounds a bit grumpy on the first CD but on the second he really lets loose and says he'll stay all night and sing what they want. Reconsider Baby is outstanding. There is, of course, the usual fare - Hound Dog, Amen, CC Rider and the band introductions but we can live with that. However, what's interesting to listen to is how Polk Salad Annie differs from his renditions in the late 60s/early 70s. He was, when all is said and done, a man who was bored out of his skull doing the same old stuff night after night. But would the audience want to hear new material from a guy who was essentially a relic by the mid-70s.
However, it should be said that this is for Elvis fans only and is one of the better FTD releases
