Another re-issue.
Is it worth the money?
We got it before on the Peaff label and cdr.
This pressed Memory label cd is the best outing so far.
The sound is pretty decent for an audience recording.
And Elvis' performance is top notch,straight forward,as al his opening nights in Vegas where.

That and the addition of a few rare tracks make this cd a real treat for the collector.
But Memory is way behind great covercreators like Madison ect...Maybe they should call Chris?

Conclusion: One for the die hard fans and those who would collect one of a kind live recordings like the sample here given.

tracks 1 to 17 are wrong speed (1/2 ton too slow). tracks 18 to 25 are ok. The speed have changed after the introductions, it's often the case with the audience records.
