The magic of '69 captured...certainly a must have...pity it's not the Opening Night, and that we are not sure of the date!

This is indeed a great show in very good sound. I believe this show to be better than the ones recently released by RCA/BMG/Sony, which were recorded later during the engagement.

The date is indeed a bit unsure, how the heck did people come forward with August 3rd?? anyone knows??

as far as i know compared it with audience tapes...but then again you can hardly hear anything on those...and most of them are wrongly dated (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/rubberface.gif)

This is certainly one of the best concerts i've ver heard.
Elvis is in great mood, great voice, the sound is even better than on some FTDs and the version of MEMORIES is fantastic.
If you don't have it, go for it, it's a must have.
