This concert was recorded in Memphis on 20 march 1974. Elvis was on good form and put on a good show. The concert was originally released by RCA the same year, edited to fit on one LP.
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 concert is Elvis singing in his own home town; never an easy task for an artist and the fact is acknowledged by him towards the end of the show. Perhaps because it is 'back down south' there is an air of 'country' to the songs, with the backings being more in the rhythm and blues style which his home town audience would have been been familiar with. His voice is very good and very strong and his version of 'How Great Thou Art' on this album is probably one of his finest performances of this song. The Medley tracks are more impressive than the listings suggest and with each song being in the same key Elvis keeps moving effortlessly and smoothly along. The audience is very responsive and seems to bring out the best side of the King; his sense of humour and his genuine appreciation of their applause comes across right through the show. Although the show is one of the shorter ones, at about 45 minutes, any edits do not show and the concert seems complete. Also the variety of the songs and Elvis' effortless stage presence makes the experience seem much longer. This is the soundtrack to a very pleasant and enjoyable show and it makes you wish that you had been present.

At last 30 years after the original release thanks to FTD we have the show released in its entirety. The show is the last of a 15 city March 1974 tour and was recorded on Wednesday the 20th of March at the Mid-South Coliseum, Memphis, Tennessee at 2130. If you own the original version, which is an edited version of the show, then you will be pleased to learn that the obtrusive audience overdubs during songs have been removed which improves the sound. The show starts as most 70's Elvis shows did with Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathrustra, See See Rider and the I Got A Woman/Amen medley which includes J.D. Sumner showing off his mega bass voice at Elvis' bequest. Love Me is given a standard performance as Elvis is still warming up. Trying To Get To You is excellent and shows that the King is in good voice but All Shook Up is too short and seems rushed. Steamroller Blues however is quite different, this version already released on Elvis Platinum is given a bluesy performance and put into the context of a whole show is better than the Aloha version. Teddy Bear/Don't be Cruel are well sung but again more rushed than in the 50's. Love Me Tender is fine and gives Elvis a chance to smooch with the ladies in the audience. The Rock 'n' Roll medley is next and songs that would normally be given a throwaway performance are moulded together to make an excelent 3 and a half minute medley. This leads into an unusual but marvellous version of Fever which shows Elvis having fun and giving some wonderful Ad-Libs. Polk Salad Annie follows and is given a wonderful bluesy performance. The tempo of the show then drops with the gospel song Why Me Lord with the verses sung by J.D. Sumner and leads into one of the gems of the show How Great Thou Art.Read more ›

The one time RCA should've featured an exciting live on stage shot of Elvis on the cover of an Elvis Presley live album, they put a picture of his Graceland mansion instead! Just the front of his home with no Elvis in sight. That's typical lopsided marketing and decision-making by his management in the 70s. The Graceland picture would've nicely adorned the cover of his later 1976 album 'From Elvis Presley Boulevard' instead.

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.
