It's a great show, but I'll find the sound on the CD somewhat "overproduced" - too much reverb and heavy compression in my opinion.

I wonder myself if they didn't have better pictures from that event. Most of them are not very sharp or do look like a bad scan.

Nonetheless - all in all a good release by FTD.

I've got to agree - the sound is a bit strange.

This is an outstanding concert, certainly one of the best concerts in ELVIS career.
I had the vinyl but never payed too much attention to it till the cd came out.

I love the lp release with the crowd reaction etc but I read somewhere that this was overdubbed is that true??? As I dont have the FTD release so I can't compare.

FAN-ELVIS-TASTIC! The original is still one of my favs on vinyl and cd but this is just fantastic. The sound is so much better and the audience dubs have been wonderfully reduced.
I feel like a lifelong Memphian listening to this n shouting "go for it my boy!" - and I'm Irish!
Blueberry Hill/I Can't Stop Loving You - a fav from the original so much better produced here.
The packaging is great and I love the pics - seeing at last what he looked like at the show.

Great FTD!

[And again - how wonderful to have our association with Chris-G at the Elvis shop, as ever impeccable service - value, courtesy and speed]

I know this FTD gets a lot of critism about the soundmix...
But is it really so bad?

The original lp/cd was not complete and has overdubbed fake applaus, good sound tough.
The boot "Steamroller blues" has the complete show but also the fake stuff... nice sound too...

This FTD is al that you can want: The complete show, no fake things, a very fine "in the building" soundmix.
Very warm too.
To me it's the best sounding recording of this show, and that includes the famous Japanese cd. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif)
FTD did an excellent job on this, it's like sitting in the front row!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif)

However none of the titles listed above DO contain the complete show as the false start to Help Me was edited out for some reason and later showed up on the Funny Side Of Elvis CD issue.

Why FTD decided not to include the false start i have no idea.

Cutting and pasting is the way how RCA-BMG-FTD-Sony work.
