_____________________________________________

We had this show before in GREAT sound by the TRIANGLE label.(Also on less but still good sound by Vicky)
Nothing wrong with that one,it's still very powerfull and superb.

Now Madison released it once again,and once again the sound is so damn good!!
We can't compare the two because they sound both so different!!
Madison delivers a great outstanding product here.
Booklet is as always very informative and this stereo version gives hope for volume two that will be released soon(i hope).

Who hasn't heard his show before: It's essential and better then any BMG release from that tour.
For those who have the Vicky and/or the TRIANGLE release, it's still a very fine addition to the collection.
This show can't be bettered on shiny disc.
It's perfect.

Only 2 flaws on this cd...for me that is.

James Burton is way low in the mix.

And the bass is heard in some songs and not on others.

Brill booklet.


Just a view!.

That's true Kev....
The mix is sometimes to different in tracks

But on the other hand it's such a "live" sound..
No flat sounding soundboard,but a real concertlike performance.

I would put the TRIANGLE and MADISON release next to eachother,even with difference in sound.
The first one has a real loud volume,while the other has Elvis' voice so upfront.
Fact is,it's better then the Texas show BMG given us on the Close up box.

Fine cd,but to be honnest,heard it before and where are the new shows Madison promised? (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif)

Got my copy yesterday. It is absolutely a great CD with a nice concert.
The winner for me is the sound. The concert itself, ok it is just a 1972 standard.

I agree with that.
This is a good chance to get the Greensboror-Show in a fine quality and a nice artwork for all, who have no chance anymore to get a copy of the Triangle release.

Before we will get any new shows, they will bring the volume 2 (I bet the 2nd Triangle-Show), so that there will be no other madison release until the end of the year. (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif)
But that is just a guess....

Don"t take this as gospel...but i have heard from a seller,that vol 2 on Madison will/could??? be out in 3 weeks time!??.

I"ve played it a few times since my last write up,and it"s one of those cds that get better with each play,as i am hearing different things etc.

FTD...i love,but why is mostly soundboards and not the 4 shows from NEW YORK (72) and HAWAII (73)?.

As for ON TOUR...something is round the corner...but what corner,in what year???????????? (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/undecided.gif)

Looks like i was right about the next vol coming out...


Red-Hot In Richmond
Standing Room Only Tapes Volume Two
The next Madison label release will be Red-Hot In Richmond - Standing Room Only Tapes, Vol. 2

This fiery performance, captured in Richmond, Virginia by a battery of MGM documentary cameras on Monday, April 10, 1972, has been issued once before -- but this time it's far more complete, and in GREAT SOUND QUALITY. For the very first time, hear the show mixed down from MGM's multi-track tapes into superb STEREO!

Snippets of this evening made the final cut of MGM's "Elvis On Tour," although with hindsight, it seems this was a major mistake. Ripping tracks like "Proud Mary," "It's Over," "Hound Dog," "For The Good Times" "Polk Salad Annie" and "An American Trilogy" were top shelf. And Elvis was in very, very good humour the entire night -- oh, yes, you're in for a real treat.

Track listing :

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra 1:17 ; 02. C.C. Rider 2:59 ; 03. Proud Mary 2:43 ; 04. Never Been To Spain 3:36 ; 05. You Gave Me A Mountain 3:13 ; 06. Until It's Time For You To Go 2:31 ; 07. Polk Salad Annie 3:14 ; 08. Love Me 1:37 ; 09. All Shook Up 0:58 ; 10. Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel 1:49 ; 11. Heartbreak Hotel 2:04 ; 12. Hound Dog 1:21 ; 13. Bridge Over Troubled Water 4:11 ; 14. Love Me Tender 1:43 ; 15. It's Over 2:15 ; 16. Suspicious Minds 4:52 ; 17. Introduction of Vocalists, Musicians, Orchestra 1:50 ; 18. For The Good Times 3:07 ; 19. I Can't Stop Loving You 2:21 ; 20. An American Trilogy 4:15 ; 21. Lawdy Miss Clawdy (incomplete)* 2:40 ; 22. Funny How Time Slips Away 2:49 ; 23. Can't Help Falling In Love / Closing Vamp 2:02

* Unfortunately, the kickoff to "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" is missing.
Total Time = 59:03

It is the version of Bridge from this show taken from the multi track but hasn't had any mixing done to it. If Madison released the show and didn't mix/master it this is what it would have sounded like.

Actually it's the incomplete Multi-Track recording, and nothing to do with the mixing!

It seems this song was not recorded on Multi-Track entirely, and had to be edited with the first part of the Mono recording to make it complete.

It's there for completists only

I also didn't notice this edit the first time around although I was listening for it. Only after hearing that incomplete bonus track of 'Bridge' could I spot where the main recording had been repaired. It sounds to me as if the edited part runs a fraction slower than the multi-track recording. But it's a very minor point in the bigger picture .... and I appreciate that Madison didn't try to hide the fact that this piece was missing.

This CD from Madison features the show performed at Greensboro on the 14th April 1972. It was first released under the title ‘Sweet Carolina’ by the Vicky label and re-issued later as ‘The Greensboro Concert’ by Triangle in impressive punchy sound quality. In both cases the sound was mono, whereas this new release has been re-mixed and mastered from the original tapes and is now a true stereo recording. Three songs from this show were featured in the movie ‘Elvis On Tour,’ (Bridge Over Troubled Water, American Trilogy and Funny How Time Slips Away) with a further song (Release Me) turning up in The Lost Performances video.



As ever, the artwork and design are superb and include a generous selection of photos together with a well written account of the featured show. However for many, the pertinent question concerns the sound quality, namely; how does it compare to what we have had before? The answer is simple—better than ever! It’s now noticeably clearer with better definition, yet still retains most of the ‘punch’ achieved by the Triangle release. The main difference is that this stereo mix is more balanced, which allows for a far greater appreciation of the musical arrangements and stage set-up, whereas before the focus was firmly on the drums, with a prominent bass drum punching throughout and raising the temperature accordingly.



The CD starts with the 2001 introduction, with the crowd’s excitement reaching a climax as Ronnie Tutt kicks off the show with an explosive opening drum salvo. This leads to a perfectly paced See See Rider, after which Elvis welcomes the audience with a simple “Good evening.” He then directs his band to “Take it down,” for a hard rocking cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Proud Mary. The detail provided by the mix here is staggering; even the handclaps from the backing groups are crisp and clear.



On Never Been To Spain, the band hit a groove and turn in a sublime performance, making Elvis’ later comment, “We’ll get the ending right one day,” a bit of a mystery. You Gave Me A Mountain follows as a new song for this year, first introduced into his set back in January. It’s a great version, with the drums high in the mix, which contributes to the power of the performance. After this, he sings his latest single, Until It’s Time For You To Go, with the crowd atmosphere adding extra interest to the proceedings.



“Take it on Jerry,” provides the cue for Polk Salad Annie, which is particularly exciting and involving in this mix and sound quality. It was obviously a draining performance, because afterwards he says,” You fellas can just lay down for a while; I’m going to stand here and look at the ceiling.” The ‘50’s hits are next, which start with Love Me, followed by All Shook Up and the Teddy Bear / Don’t Be Cruel medley. Each selection is greeted by a roar from the crowd and benefits from good crisp drumming, which can be heard to great effect in this sound quality.



In the build-up to Hound Dog, Elvis remarks, “I was a little weird kid, had little weird sideburns and guitar and so forth y’know….still doing the same thing; nothing different. “ He then proceeds with a teasing funky arrangement, before the tempo doubles for the usual fast-paced version. Heartbreak Hotel provides a temporary respite, before the pace picks up again for a barnstorming performance of A Big Hunk Of Love, with Elvis urging Glen Hardin to “Play it,” adding, “it’s your big chance man.”



Bridge Over Troubled Water is the superb performance featured in Elvis On Tour, but has been repaired here as the original tape was damaged. Evidence of the damage is provided as a bonus track and shows that approximately 30 seconds was missing following the opening bars at the start. It also shows how skilfully this repair has been carried out, as it is extremely difficult to detect; the only appreciable clue being the change from a mono to a stereo mix.



Suspicious Minds follows this, with some great piano backing audible in this mix. Afterwards he teases the audience by shouting out, “Well don’t you know,” as if to signal a further reprise. Love Me Tender features various ad-libs (….’my suit turn blue’….’till we lose our minds’), followed by the group introductions which are extremely succinct and completed in just over a minute. A fabulously soulful For The Good Times is performed next, followed by American Trilogy featuring an incredible sustained note on the ending.



He then addresses the audience, saying, “We’re gonna spring a new song on you tonight. We don’t know it too well but….if we goof it up just bear with us.” This remark heralds the first ever live performance of Burning Love, which proves to be a spirited attempt, but falls apart during the final chorus when the band miss his cue to end it. Elvis admits as much by commenting afterwards, “I thought we’d never end the bloomin’ thing,” adding, “Now that’s new and we’ve never done it on stage before, so if we goofed it up, I’m sorry.”



Release Me has him back on familiar ground, but its gentle rolling rhythm sounds rather pedestrian after the driving tempo of the previous song. Afterwards, he asks for the house lights to be turned up so he can see the audience, before continuing with Funny How Time Slips Away. This was another song featured in Elvis On Tour, which is particularly memorable for the moment during the ending when he points proudly at his belt buckle saying, “For those of you who can’t see back there, this is an owl.”



After this, he thanks his audience profusely, before calling out “Wise men” as the cue for Can’t Help Falling In Love. This results in another fine performance, followed by a short closing vamp which fades out before the announcements. Two bonus tracks follow this to round off the CD.



The first features a backstage discussion before his show in Macon the next evening. Someone asks whether Burning Love will be performed that night, which leads Elvis to comment on the mistakes made during the performance of this song in the Greensboro show. In truth, it’s only a snippet running for less than a minute, but proves interesting nonetheless. The second is the unrepaired Bridge Over Troubled Water track, which was presumably included to indicate the precise point at which the tape was damaged.



In conclusion, this is a CD you will return to often—guaranteed. Many have mentioned that the enjoyment of this show actually builds with repeated listening, as the superb quality allows you to appreciate subtle nuances in the performance which can be overlooked on a casual listen. It is indeed that good and thus one of the finest releases ever issued by an Import label—faultless in design, content and production—they simply don’t get better than this! Consequently you’ll need to move fast, as reports are coming in that it’s already sold out.

I friggin' hate this CD. It's the only Madison platter I managed to miss completely, and one I definitely wanted to have... ...obviously now I haven't been able to find it anywhere. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I hope FTD puts out it out sooner than later... although I'd settle for the Hampton Roads show too.
