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.
Anyway, that's my one and only gripe with this superb album. The concert itself is legendary. Elvis had not performed in Memphis since 1961 and this was his first concert in his hometown since then. Expectations were high and it is such a blessing that this concert was recorded, because it tops all concerts. Elvis was keen to be there for his people and they were just ecstatic to see him. Together with the audience, Elvis and his slick TCB band almost blew the roof off the Mid South Coliseum. They really never sounded better.
Elvis' regular bassist Jerry Scheff had been replaced by newcomer Duke Bardwell and a new backing vocals group recently discovered by Elvis himself also join the band on stage, in addition to the existing vocals. He proudly named them 'Voice'.
Elvis rocked like never before, and every song performed was done as only Elvis could - more especially the rock'n'roll and gospel numbers. They were beyond fantastic. Just listen and you'll see what I mean.
In 1974 Elvis was 39 years old, divorced, and wealthy. And though no one knew it, he had just three years to live. He would spend those final years playing live to screaming audiences all over America, as if trying to perform in every city of every state.Read more ›
