This Is Why He Is The King,
This review is from: An Afternoon In The Garden (Audio CD)
This is (in my opinion) better than the original New York release 'As Recorded At Madison Square Garden'. Which is a good performance in itself, but generally the clearness and strength of Elvis' voice is far better here. Such performances as 'Proud Mary' 'Reconsider Baby' and 'For The Good Times' are some of my favourite on the CD. But my favourite above all is this version of 'An American Trilogy', his voice is so powerful and is filled with emotion. Elvis does his regular pitch of Hound Dog, Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede shoes etc...
But one of main things which make this a fantastic concert is the crowd. The audience are absolutley electric and Elvis handles them (as usual) in perfect style. I haven't heard alot of concerts from '72 but from what ive seen and heard, this has to be the best from the whole year. I wonder wheather some of the acts around today could perform like this on stage consistantly, i seriously doubt it.
In my opinion...better than Hawaii '73.
