I have this cd, very good show put on by our man.

Nice to hear "Sweet Caroline" sung in 1976.

The sound is pretty good also for an audience recording.

The sound is indeed good for an AR Loraine.
Above that it's a historical show,Elvis' farewell in Vegas.
Altough he didn't knew it at the time...

The sound imo is much better on Black Diamond than the cd Farewell To Vegas which also has the dec 12th closing show on it..I like the false start on my way...strip the beard off your face..pretty good show..sad it was his last and he just hated vegas now..

It's a pity that they used a later generation tape for this CD; there is an excellent first generation tape circulating but that's always the problem. The makers often used a later generation tape.
