You know how it is when you go to a concert of a well known artist and all you really want to hear is the old stuff, mainly because the new stuff is pretentious and lame...that was NOT the case here. Elvis varied it. He played both. But honestly, the best part of the show was when he played the new stuff. The duets with Emmylou Harris were also outstanding. And it might just be a personal preference, but I really dug the purple suit he was wearing.
Check it out for yourself. And look for me while you are at it, I may have been imortalized on the DVD. I am the curly haired girl in the red and white shirt.
The disc is great on many different levels. Elvis rocks his heart out on stage, and his duets with Emmylou Harris are nothing less than sublime. He also takes us on a long tour of the Southern locales that have inspired him throughout his career. His vocal and instrumental chops are first-rate, whether he is performing solo or with the band, acoustic or electric, before stomping, hooting crowds, or alone with a piano in a small studio. He meets performers and fans and really seems to enjoy talking to them.
(I saw Elvis in a one-man show in Seattle in 2005, and he has never been better. At the peak of his form, and with just a guitar and an empty stage, he put on a long, ebullient, and amazingly rich performance, filling a stadium with thousands of his fans who stood in rapt attention when they weren't cheering and singing along, playing hit after hit from the length and breadth of his oeuvre.)
Get this DVD to understand the power of Elvis live!
As for the live performance and quality, this is superb. Elvis still sings in the original key, which is something not many performers his age can still do. (I know this because he still plays the songs in the original key. I played guitar along with the DVD.) There are plenty of closeups since this was a small venue, and it's easy to see the audience reaction. (I haven't seen the PoGo dance for quite some time.)
I suggest you pick this up. If you're a die hard fan or are new to his music, I believe you'll be in for a treat.
Do yourself a favor. Experience this show. Own it, live it. It is so well done that you'll watch it again and again. Musicians take heed to the "space" given to the other players in the ensemble, and how "space" adds so much to a performance. As well, the delivery and honesty that Elvis gives is so missing from so many current manufactured (for lack of a better word) "pop bands" out there. Having "Elvis" in Memphis live, on a perfect night, with a perfectly edited performance (compiled from several performances) is just "right". You'll not want your night to end. Live it over and over...and pray that EC and his band keep giving us stuff like this. The eclectic mixture of styles takes you on a real adventure you'll not forget. I envy those who were there. As a frequenter to the HiTone I sadly missed out on this one...but you don't have to!

I was disappointed when I purchased.
Maturity as a group can not be recommended very low but, of Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint CD is very good
Let me begin with some positives: Elvis was in fairly good form, especially vocally; it was a treat to have Emmylou Harris join him for three songs in the middle of the show; and,... Read morePublished 7 months ago by dwall
Designed to give a "small club" intimate feel. Instead just feels cramped and forced. The mixes are pretty awful in places and the performances are alright... Read morePublished 8 months ago by 1365Mike
