Track 1 - 4 is from Memphis June 10, 1975
Track 2 and 3 is sung by voice.

What can i say? Elvis in this period is pure magic. In march everything was as it should be on stage. Elvis has such power in his voice, and he attacks even the 50s numbers the way only he could. Elvis was in grat shape at this tim not only vocally.

Its very starnge that Elvis was at his best the same year he had some big lows. (Im not talking about what Elvis said in vegas). But the later tours in 74. Collage park etc. Its unbelivable that both these things happend at the same year.

And by the way,guaranteed to blow your mind, the coolest name on a cd ever?

I'm actually surprised to see that this great cd hasn't gotten any replies yet [img]style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif[/img]

This has always been one of my favorite releases. It's a great show, sound is very good (even for a soundbaord) and the packaging is very nice. The warming up from Voice is a nice addition (of which I'm sure is not liked by most of you) to this cd, it really creates an "concert" atmosphere.

Probably the best Steamroller Blues ever .............. indeed guaranteed to blow your mind [img]style_emoticons/default/woohoo.gif[/img]

Like you guys have already stated, this is indeed a great cd. Elvis put on one helluva concert for this crowd.

I just listened to it the other day and was really impressed, the great sound, the setlist is fantastic. Probably the best version of Steamroller Blues i've ever heard.

I really enjoy these March '74 shows, Elvis was in top shape vocally, and this concert proves that.

To tell the truth Stefan, i can aviod much of the none Elvis material, (alltough i watch sweet spirit on the EOT movie). But the first times i listen to a record i listen to everything.

as for the songs on this record, there is no weak Elvis song... Perhaps the moma don't dance medley is not optimal, it's still funny. Personal favorites from this show would be Triology,Polk salad Annie and Steamroller blues... wait include Let me there and Trying to get to you aswell. [img]style_emoticons/default/wink.gif[/img]
