The latest release by Straight arrow is the july 23 show in Ashville.
He performed three very good shows in that city, this is the second show.

The show has been released before, but this is another source.
More info about the first version here:

Now this cd...

Except for in the beginning (where the sound is uneven), the sound is pretty good, a bit "booming", but listenable.
The first release sounds imo a bit better, but that's a matter of opinion, it's different.
That release is very hard to get now, so this is a nice alternative.
The show itself is very VERY good, Elvis his voice is awesome and strong.
The bonus songs sounds better then before, so that's indeed a nice bonus.

The artwork is a digipack, wich is cool, but i personaly feel that it's a bit rushed.
I mean: too many colours, the picture on the inside (wich is nice) has a bad cut out in Elvis hair...
It's a bit of a let down.

But the main thing is the show, and even i still prefer the original and first version, it's a must to have.

I don't think the sound is good on this release - then again I haven't listened to ARs in a while

Have the first version (Gyrating Ashville) and that one has fairly good sound. Have heard samples from this release and think I still prefer the old one too, but as it is Staright Arrow it's defenately quality and foreveryone who missed out on Gyrating Ashville this is a good runner up.
