4.0 out of 5 stars LIVE IN VEGAS 1975, 20 July 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dinner at Eight (Audio CD)
Unlike all concerts I've heard, Elvis stops the show even before hitting the first note! Seemingly in a bad mood (can't be blamed when stuck in an hotel suite for weeks and only coming out at showtime) he is immediately disgruntled with the microphone and makes that known to all. Who else can get away with that?

The fact is, someone forgot to turn ON Elvis Presley's microphone!!

Anyway, once that's out of the way, the Vegas audience are treated to a great performance. From sounding a little sleepy, he quickly warms up to the audience and delivers strong renditions of the standard late 1975 repertoire - with one notable exception - the audience requested WOODEN HEART. That Elvis even remembered this 1960 GI Blues movie track is comforting, but to actually hear him perform it live in 1975 is remarkable - unrehearsed and unpolished.

The highlights of the concert include excellent versions of TRYIN'TO GET TO YOU, HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT, MYSTERY TRAIN, AND BLUE CHRISTMAS. The CD sound quality is very good and Elvis was on form vocally.

I would recommend this show to any fan anyway, but more especially to hear Elvis perform a very rare WOODEN HEART.
