4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Bows Out In Top Form, 25 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Elvis In Concert (Audio CD)
When Elvis was recorded by CBS in June 77 for a TV special, no one would have dreamed that this would be his last tour.
Two concerts, in Rapid City, and Omaha were recorded; but when Elvis died two months later, the special was not complete and somebody again made money by exploiting the footage into a cheap, short TV show.
The truth of the matter is that Elvis was on great form, and one listen to this CD will easily prove this.
Dont beleive the rubbish that he forgot songs, and was incoherent; sure he goofed Are You Lonesome Tonight, but what singer has never made a mistake on stage.
Elvis in Concert opens with a rip roaring See See Rider, followed by I Got a Woman. But this is just the start; terrific renditions of Thats Alright, Fairytale, Little Sister and And I Love You So follow. But the highlights are My Way, which surpasses his Aloha 73 version and is more than equal of Sinatra's. Hurt is unbelievable and leaves the studio version far behind, as does an awe inspiring How Great Thou Art, which is more powerful than the album version from 66; and again surpasses the Grammy Award winning rendition from Memphis in March 74.
I dont think that anyone will be disapointed by this CD; altough I would urge RCA to remaster this much like the way Thats The Way It Is was done. I'm positive that it would be a big seller; e.g. promoted as the final tour or last recordings coupled with Moody Blue.
