I voted for Johnny B Goode.
This could have been a good single for Elvis.

I Can't Stop Loving You

Was a power house performance in '69 and 1970...over the years it lost its edge when being performed live though imo.

Mystery Train/Tigerman. Probably the first time i heard him sing this live was on this LP. Ahh....how awesome. after hearing countless studio albums...i couldn't wait to get hold of some live material. This one was one of the first. A cracking release in its day on a par with anything ( live ) through the years.

This is still my favorite "Live" LP.......Love it to this very day and, for me anyway, it still TOPS anything that has been released since from the '69 Vegas engagement. I know it's not a true complete concert from one show, but it does feature what I feel are the cream of the crop versions......I love everything about it. Elvis and the band were at their peak here, and as hard rockin' as anything one might hope to hear from say the likes of the Doors or Led Zeppelin.

I voted for "Mystery Train/Tiger Man". I've never heard a better version, absolutely NEVER. The two solo's James does are flawless, and Elvis simply tears the song to shreds. Man was he ready to hit the world stage at this time rather than be glued down in Vegas.....Ah the possibilities!

He was as big as the whole country itself, as big as the whole dream. He just embodied the essence of it and he was in mortal combat with the thing. Nothing will ever take the place of that guy.
