This review is from: Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis (Audio CD)The original BMG release of this great concert ranked as one of the best Elvis ever did. Now this brilliant FTD release of the entire concert surpasses the original ! Superbly remastered, this great show reveals an artist clearly delighted to be with his hometown fans and he does not disappoint in delivering an outstanding performance.
The "additions" to the show include a blistering "Steamroller Blues", as well as energitic renditions of "Polk Salad Annie" and "Suspicious Minds". Also, a very good "Fever" is added. Standout performances remain the Grammy award-winning "How Great Thou Art", "Help Me", and an excellent "Let Me Be There", together with the always stirring "American Trilogy".
The "older" Presley hits usually act as quick fillers, but pleasingly this concert includes an excellent medley starting with "Long Tall Sally" through to "Hound Dog". Favourite Elvis classic "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" is given a particularly lively performance.
Overall, a fantastic FTD release which even the sceptics must concede reflects the brilliance of Presley loving it live !
