4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Live On Stage In Memphis November 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Elvis is in fine shape vocally and physically. He has a lot of fun on this album probably because he is playing to his hometown fans.
It is not my favorite of his live albums but it is a very good live show. I do not like it as well as the others because the orchestra only has the brass at this show. It is minus the strings and reeds and the overall effect isn't quite as good as it is on Madison Square Garden or the Aloha From Hawaii Albums.
Hopefully RCA will re-remaster this album and bring out the backbone of the show (the band) a bit more like they did on the recently released 25th anniversary Aloha show.
The horns are overbearing and need to be toned down.
Overall its a good album and worth having in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under-appreciated live recording. March 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have not yet purchased the CD of this set, but the vinyl serves me well: it's Elvis best live-in-concert performance since the '61 Benefit show. I think the '74 effort was dismissed because it was deemed yet another in a long series, actually starting in '68. But many factors make it a very significant event: Elvis' vocals, noticeably stronger and "brighter" than on the '73 Hawaiian show; the hometown atmosphere; the version of "Let Me Be There" which was so good that (reportedly) a test 45rpm promo was made and the cut was issued a second time on a later album; "How Great Thou Art" from the l.p. which won a Grammy! And I still think that the rock and roll Medley was good enough to release on a single A-side! Fans, go back and listen (Reconsider, baby...).

5.0 out of 5 stars What Elvis fans have been waiting for..... March 19, 2014
By FTM Fan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Finally, RCA has officially released the full live concert recorded on March 20th 1974 at the Mid South Coliseum in Elvis's hometown of Memphis Tennessee. This particular concert was somewhat significant, as it was his first live concert in Memphis since the early 1960's. The original release of this concert in 1974 had several songs cut from the track listing, due to spatial limitations on the vinyl disc. With this recent release, all songs cut from the original album are now present and accounted for, such as Suspicious Minds, Steamroller Blues, Fever, and Polk Salad Annie and more. Prior to this release, the only way to obtain this concert with its entire track listing was through the Follow that Dream (FTD) label. Unfortunately many of the FTD releases are of poor sound quality with a "bootleg" feel to them.

This is not the case with the Legacy Edition, the sound is awesome and it is quite obvious that Elvis is having a blast performing in front of all of his hometown fans...He even comments towards the end of the concert "It's been said that a person can't return to their hometown, but you have disproven that theory completely...you really made it worthwhile!"

He is in rare form, backed by his red hot band, he sounds great, tackling many of his greatest hits such as American Trilogy, Teddy Bear, All Shook Up...he even won a Grammy Award for his live rendition of How Great Thou Art.

The other disc included in this set is a concert which occurred in Richmond Virginia on or about March 18th 1974, and is a "warm up" to his Memphis Concert. The track listing is identical, except for the last few songs which are some studio recordings he was practicing for inclusion into his live act.

This is a great deal!!

First off, I just want to say how good the remastering is. The Memphis concert sounds like it was recorded yesterday and is a considerable improvement on the 2004 Follow That Dream Edition. The second disc is from Richmond VA, recorded two days previous and despite being flagged as unreleased, was released in 2011 on the Follow That Dream label titled 48 Hours to Memphis. As an extra treat, there are 5 bonus songs recorded during rehearsals in August the same year.
The way I see it, I have 2 FTD albums worth $70 for $14, and even though this is the 5th version of this album I have purchased over the years, the clarity makes it sound like a brand new recording, so no star deduction for the false claim from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a new concert March 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this new Legacy release. It was remixed and remastered and sounds pretty cool. Past releases like the 2004 still had the echo and reverb that overpowered the show. There was also fan chatter that was quite annoying at times. This new mix was cleaned up of all of that. Elvis' as well as all the back up singers voices are clean, up front and clear. The band was also brought to the front as well. I listen to a lot of Elvis' concerts and expect to hear a concert, not the recording of one. Prince From Another Planet displays this beautifully. On a side note, In the song "Funny How Time Slips Away" you can hear the Sweets say "Tee Hee Hee Hee" after Elvis says "Aint it funny...". I love it!

I'd never heard the Richmond concert before. I liked that as well. It's recorded in mono and is soaked in reverb. Play it in a good sound system or headphones and it sounds pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hail to the king April 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
A superior album with all the old standbys as well as songs not performed by the king too often on stage or recorded (blueberry hill). I like this performance better then the aloha via satellite album as he seems more relaxed and in tune with the audience. This is the album RCA should have released originaly.

Well, if it's Elvis it is good. This was from a hometown concert he did in Memphis, first time in years he had performed in his hometown.

Excellent set. As a bonus, the second disc was originally released as FTD's 48 Hours From Memphis, so that really adds to the value.
