The officially released "New Year's Eve" serves as a valuable document of Elvis Presley's last stellar performance. Though the two-CD set contains an audience recording from Presley's 1976 Pittsburgh concert, the sound quality is better than most amateur tapings. Highlighted by dynamic renditions of "Tryin' to Get to You," "Polk Salad Annie," "Hurt" and "Unchained Melody," the King is nothing short of astonishing. Sadly, this level of energy and commitment was largely absent in Presley's final shows. However, for one glorious winter night in 1976, Elvis surpassed all expectations with this 90-minute tour de force.

I have read many reviews for this album on several sites and most of them focus on the poor quality of the recording. Yes, I too am concerned about quality and want good sound. This concert, however, is the best Elvis performance I have heard since Aloha From Hawaii. It is awesome. Elvis even remembers ALL the words to Jailhouse Rock, something that doesn't happen often in '76 or '77. Yes the quality is bad. It sounds like you are standing outside the arena listening at the door. I put off buying this album for a long time based on comments I had read about the quality. Now that I have heard it, I am glad that I bought it. If you buy this cd you should be prepared for the bad quality, but you should buy this cd if you are a huge Elvis fan.

Many people consider this to be the best concert of the final year of Elvis' life. It may very well be so, but unfortunately the concert was not professionally recorded. This recording was made by a concertgoer who snuck a tape recorder into the arena. The sound quality is not very good at all. You can hear Elvis and the band, but sometimes they are drowned out by the screams and comments made by people standing near the guy with the tape recorder. As for the performance itself, it is indeed one of Elvis' best efforts of his later years. He is in good voice and actually is enthusiastic for a change. It is also one of his longest concerts, running 88 minutes long. This is an important concert, and if you want to hear it you will have to put up with the crappy sound quality. Here are some of the stupid comments you can hear concertgoers say on these CDs:

"Happy Birthday, Elvis!"

"I am lonesome!"

"Jesus, watch where you're walking!"

"I'm gonna get closer and take some pictures."

"Who cares?"

"You give me fever!"

For many years, the Presley Myth would have us believe this unreleased concert was one of the best of Elvis's career. In this case the Myth becomes the Truth, proving that even in the last months of his life, Elvis was still capable of casting a dynamic presence on stage.

Elvis is simply in great form throughout this 87 minute show. Although his later concerts usually weren't as bad as some Presley detractors would want us to believe, Elvis seldom displayed this much vibrancy on stage in his final year of performing. The best thing about this show is that Elvis sounds committed, rather than phoning in an adequate by-the-numbers performance that were so common in his later career.

The sound quality is not nearly as bad as some reviewers have said. For an audience recording it's actually quite good. Although not a cheap purchase by any means, this is an essential recording for Elvis fans who want to own the key performances of his 1969 to 1977 touring years.
