Madison did it again!!
After the succes of the Closing night cd,this is a logical follow up.
the booklet is outstanding,the cd inlay has a very original pic too.
Never seen this one before!!
EP is the hottest thing in Vegas.
The sound is certainly better then on any other previous outing,so that's pretty good.
But it must be said,don't expect super audio,it's not a BMG reel they can use.
But untill they(BMG or FTD) do something,this is the best alternative.
The show is finaly complete too.

Elvis' second season from 1970 in Vegas falls in between the rawness of 69 and the soft voice from august 70.
But man,did he rock!!! notworthy.gif
Enjoy a most rare sampletrack!!

A superb release.. Finaly I must say. It's been a while since I've been this happy about a Elvis release.
Im not a big fan of re-releases, but this one is a exception.

This is one cracking cd thumbup.gif

Sound quality is so much better than on the old FT Baxter cd, and the mic overload on the opening songs isn't quite as annoying either (at least to my ears tongue.gif )

The booklet is very well put together too - lots of cool photos thumbup.gif

I highly recommend this one....

Got it,love it,think it's a winner clap.gif .The sound improvments are very good and it is more of a pleasure to hear this show now.And the full version of Cant Help Falling In Love brings the show to a natural end.Go get it folks

still don't care for the sound on this cd , i just knew that this would never be totally superb and what a shame as i love the show and love wtching the outakes we had over the yeras on boot , the booklet is well done , a great release just the claims about improved sound were a bit misleading.
