Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis presents one of the most legendary performers of all time in his home town of Memphis where it all began. Not only does this 2CD Legacy Edition set feature tracks not included on the original album, it also features previously unreleased material and a 24 page booklet with rare photos, previously unseen memorabilia, new liner notes, press clips and more.
Elvis’s attention to detail and showmanship is very evident on this release as Disc 2 shows him performing hits such as “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Softly As I Leave You” for an upcoming Las Vegas engagement in preparation. Furthermore, the entire recording is actually a full scale live recording “test run” in front of a live audience in preparation for his historic concert return to Memphis, where he’d last played live in 1957.
The remarkable performance was recorded in MONO, drenched in the reverb Elvis preferred, and provides new insight into the magic of Elvis. This specially remastered release is available from 17th March, exactly 20 years since the original performance was recorded.

It is great to see this concert finally released complete and unedited. The sound has been re-mastered and the quality is very good. The packaging is unusual both in size ( approx 18cm sq ) and format, having a gatefold sleeve the front of which is designed to replicate the original LP sleeve. When opened the centre of the cover is designed to look like the original LP, the CD is mounted in the middle and has a design that replicates the centre of the original LP. The back flap incorporates a colour booklet which has some nice concert photos and information.
This is a must for any fan and superior in quality to any of the other FTD concert releases.
This is, in my view, the best Elvis live album available. On release, large chunks of the show were removed, intelligently mostly material that had been available 18 months previously on Aloha From Hawaii, but on rerelease the concert is released in its entiery, which makes it great value for money.
As usual Elvis finds it hard to let "I've Got A Woman" end, but unlike other Elvis concerts I've heard (and I've heard a few by now) he's a real passion for his older material, "Love Me" has fire, the rock'n'roll medly has Elvis' full comitment, "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" and "My Baby left Me" sounds great while "Trying To Get To You" is just amazing! Even the usualy shabby "All Shook Up" and "Teddy Bear" come across as more 'musical' than usual.
This concert wasn't about Elvis' newer material, but nevertheless "Let Me Be There" and "Streamroller Blues" are fine records.
But the hights appear in the middle of record. "Why Me Lord" is a truly great record, sung here by J.D. Sumner and Elvis, and just listen to the fire and passion in that chorus. Wow. Following this Elvis cuts into "How Great Thou Art". If you listen to Elvis sing this song in '77, it sounds like an impersionist. Here the emotion and passion of the gospel classic totally overwhelsm Elvis and his voice seems to encopase the room. In '77 he just shouts. It's a fine line, but here Elvis is very much on the right side and turns in a sublime performance.
