3.0 out of 5 stars If You're Looking For Trouble ......, 19 April 2008
This review is from: Closing Night (Audio CD)
.... you came to the right place... Yes, and this CD certainly shows Elvis in trouble.

At first play, I was shocked. Despite the presence of celebrities in the audience, Elvis is in a sTrAnGe mood and not taking the show seriously at all. Except for a few songs, he jokes and laughs his way through the entire concert. I believe this is the famous show after which Elvis is confronted by his manager Tom Parker, who is then immediately sacked by Elvis (but sadly hired back a few days later).

Despite the silly mood of the show, we do get to hear some gems, among them a live version of TROUBLE !!! I've never heard that in concert! A fantastic version at that! And listen to the interesting announcement Elvis makes in the middle of Mystery Train/Tiger Man! This is one strange concert, and unlike any other I've heard. The sound quality is more than adequate but he was playing with and singing to his band most of the time.

Some buyers have dismissed this release, but I believe we need to see Elvis from all angles - good and not so good. For those of us who were not around or too young to see him in concert, this CD is a revelation. It proves he was human, frustrated with his life and the monotony of his career as a result of being seriously mismanaged by a crooked manager. Elvis by now had done it all and, thanks to his heartless and selfish manager, was simply bored and without any new challenges.

Let's face it, he is not around to perform new concerts. So, although this show is far from Elvis' best, CLOSING NIGHT is a must for the serious fan. It may upset you but you will play this many times, mainly as a study. I have given it 3 stars for its' rarity.
