The artist of the century, the event of a lifetime,
By A Customer
This review is from: Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite (Audio CD)
This was the single biggest event of Elvis` career. A benefit concert to be viewed by an estimated 1.5 billion people around the world. Elvis is obviously nervous right through the concert but in true fashion, his performance reamins outstanding. Noteable examples being Suspicious Minds and the dramatic overexuberance of An American Trilogy. there`s something for most musical tastes contained herein, from James Taylor`s Steamroller blues to the beautiful I`ll remember you. All the additional songs come from his 1961 film Blue hawaii with the exception of Early Morning Rain. Elvis is noticeably tired in the additional tracks, recorded as they were about 1 hour after the show ended. This is the performance that piqued my interest in Elvis and is a good introduction to the power of his voice in the later years.
