ELVIS ROCKS VEGAS
on 12 March 2011
If you ever needed solid proof of why they call Elvis Presley THE KING OF ROCK'n'ROLL, then any argument ends with this CD.
This is Elvis Presley live on stage in August 1969 at his rocking and wildest best. Just pure unadulterated rock'n'roll with a couple of balads. And playing behind him is the tightest rhythm section you will ever hear, put together by Elvis himself and led by guitarist James Burton.
As if to make you sit up to attention, Elvis kicks off with the heaviest and fastest BLUE SUEDE SHOES ever performed, and without leaving you any time to catch your breath he explodes into an electrifying version of JOHNNY B GOODE. By the end of those two songs you feel like you have just been thrown off a moving rollercoaster. Knowing that, Elvis takes pity and soothes you with ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
But suddenly the pity ends as he again stampedes through the next few tracks. He belts out HOUND DOG, MY BABE and MYSTERY TRAIN/ TIGER MAN with the aggression of a lion that's had a huge rock dropped on its' paw.
As you listen, you are thinking: Is this person real? Is it possible for someone to be this good?
Your question is instantly answered as Elvis rips into SUSPICIOUS MINDS. It is shockingly powerful. This performance alone can supercharge your phone without connecting a charger.
In between this whirlwind of hits, Elvis dazzles you with ALL SHOOK UP, IN THE GHETTO, I CAN'T STOP LOVING YOU, and the Bee Gees' WORDS.
After closing with Can't Help Falling in Love, you realise there is no equal to Elvis Presley. Check out this CD and I dare you to think otherwise.
