This cd contains the third show from this short Vegas season that lasted only 3 days. The show is quite good with an energetic Elvis (who supposedly after appearing on stage lied down on stage before performing See See Rider) and a good, even surprising, set-list.

Both Blue Suede Shoes and It's Now Or Never are sung very early in the show. My Boy is a sort of laughing version (but good nontheless) and Loving You is the first live performance. Before the intro's Elvis does the last ever live version of Suspicious Minds (unfortunately incomplete) and during the last part of the show Elvis does a great How Great Thou Art and, a good, Crying In The Chapel which is also the first live performance. All in all a good show in decent sound quality

"How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977

This is one of the request box shows; when the fans entered the show room they could thro their requests in a box. from that box some choices wered made..this is the reason for the strange order of songs.

Loving you was performed in very short portions several times in aug. 1969 with a longer version on 27 aug. 1969. the version here is nearly complete.
