COMING SOON – AUGUST

From the producers of “Plugged in & Geared Up” comes a fully remastered & edited Las Vegas show of 1969.

“ELVIS"
-THE RETURN OF A PRODIGY-


The special 40th anniversary
“ELVIS LIVE IN LAS VEGAS 1969~Edition


(IMG:http://www.elvis-tkc.com/forums/uploads/1248821489/gallery_21960_20_108369.jpg)


Facts:
- The earliest known soundboard of 1969 to date
- Newly discovered ‘69 audio
- The differences between the later released shows of end August 1969 will strike you.



“ELVIS -THE RETURN OF A PRODIGY”

Will be released by Gravel Road Music in August!



This is the August 3, 1969 Dinner Show, straight from the original ‘69 reference mix. It is completely remastered and edited.

This is the earliest soundboard to date of Elvis first Las Vegas engagement in 1969.
It’s also the third live performance he gave, the music is very different from the late August released live performances.
This is to date the closest you can get to the opening show of July 31st, 1969
The liner notes are a review of somebody who actually was there.

It will give you a very lively idea how it looked .


WITH - more than 50 photos of the same show (many in color) included will help you even more to imagine the first few shows of 1969.

As an bonus we included some interviews prior to the opening show and original radio spots of 1969.

We hope at Gravel road Music that you all are just as excited as we are about this release, because it’s an historical soundboard recording, placed in the right perspective.

Note; The show itself was released by Fort Baxter in 1993 as “Opening Night” no edits were made at the time and an effect was placed on the audio to cover up the tape noise.

Now it is upfront clear and very lively as a wild 69 show should be.

For the ones who have “Opening night” or the copy from this show, this release will appear as if you are hearing it for the first time.

One for the 'must-buy' list for sure.

I don't have the original 'Fort Baxter' outing, so for me, this is a very welcome release. And when it's coming from a label like 'Gravel Road', I see no reason of skipping it. ..... At first I thought the title was a tad odd choise, but the GR team obviously knows what they're doing so... looking forward to it!

Great to hear the concert in probably better sound; Are you lonesome tonight with male backing vocals is totally different.

So far only a few updates were really better sounding than their original outings (re-releases of for example: It's A Matter Of Time, The Power Of Zhazam or Night Fever In Vegas). I certainly hope that this one will be equally as good as the other ones, in that case this should be a really worthwhile adition to ones collection !

I knew that, but thanks anyway (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif)

They have proven once already to come with an outstanding re-release (and I like "Vegas Rhytm" A LOT), so I hope this one will be equally outstanding (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rockon.gif)
