On Stage: Legacy Edition revisits Elvis' historic return to public concerts in las Vegas in August 1969 and February 1970.
Top customer reviews
As the previous reviewer said, this album is an excellent companion to the Legacy's edition of `From Elvis in Memphis'. It gives you a little idea of how extraordinary Elvis's diverse vocal range was and due to his diverse musical influences in his life. He is the most innovative artist (in my humble opinion) and can improvise any song and make it his own, for example, Runaway and Proud Mary, Long Tall sally (disc 1).
There is a booklet which comes with the double album. which gives a bit of a potted history about his Live performances in Las Vegas and there are some fantastic pictures. When he returned to live performing, he wasn't just the `King of Rock and Roll' , he was also the' King of `Cool'. This is Elvis in his finest, at his raunchiest, at his most rockiest, at his most soulful, most inspirational and sincerest to his audience. When he sang, he did it with his heart and soul and he meant it. His backing musicians and backing singers all `a wonder' to hear. If only, I could be transported back in time, I would loved to have been at an Elvis concert in Las Vegas !
I listen and see alot of current Rock bands live, their lead musicians are not even in the same league as Elvis and somehow, I always have to come back to listen Elvis again, to be reinspire my faith in music. If you are music collector, this is `must have' in you collection. If you don't listen to Elvis much, this album will blow you away and you'd wish had listened to it before. Definitely worth buying !!
I simply love the songs that Elvis belts out with his excellent band and back up singers. The album was recorded in 1969 and Elvis is diverse in its choice of songs: covers, originals and contemporary but always sounding vital and moving. For example the great See See Rider is probably the best live version from his live albums. Then he tackles Proud Mary - The Credence Clear Water number with real power. Its great listening to him come alive in concert and take us with him. There is a nice version of yesterday and the Del Shannon number Runaway.
I think lovers of good music will like this C.D. as it is simply great music on all levels and styles.
In a catalogue which was to become strewn with live albums during the 1970s, both ON STAGE and ELVIS IN PERSON capture the King at something of a performance peak, when his command of the International Hotel showroom was fresh and innovative and before it began to teeter on the brink of self-parody. The sense of Elvis enjoying his musical renaissance is palpable throughout ELVIS IN PERSON, where old favourites like 'Blue Suede Shoes' and 'Mystery Train' stand proud alongside dynamic new recordings like an epic and impassioned rendering of 'Suspicious Minds'. Similarly, with the later ON STAGE album, Elvis' enthusiasm for more contemporary tunes shines through with his stupendous rendition of Tony Joe White's 'Polk Salad Annie' and a heartfelt cover of Joe South's 'Walk A Mile In my Shoes'.
A nice selection of bonus tracks have been tacked onto both albums, with those on ELVIS IN PERSON perhaps being of most interest, during which we get to hear Elvis getting his teeth into bluesy numbers like 'Baby, What You Want Me To Do', 'Reconsider Baby' and the song that launched his global breakthrough, 'Heartbreak Hotel'. With regard to the ON STAGE album, a bonus performance of the lovely 'Kentucky Rain' is very pleasing to hear also.
Together with FROM ELVIS IN MEMPHIS, ON STAGE is a benchmark in Elvis Presley's career, showing that at the end of the 1960s he was once again just as important to contemporary popular music as the rock groups and solo performers who had risen in his wake throughout the decade.
