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.

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...).

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.

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.

This concert album was recorded live March 20, 1974 in Memphis. It was Elvis' fifth live album, not counting albums that were partially live. The entire concert is not on this CD, but the whole concert has recently been released on a different CD. I would call this an average Elvis concert. There are several songs that have been on too many concert albums; like "See See Rider", "I Got a Woman", "Love Me", "An American Trilogy" and of course "Can't Help Falling in Love". The highlights of this CD are the gospel songs, which always brought out the best in Elvis. He performed three of them this time around; "How Great Thou Art" (always a powerful performance), "Help Me" (he had recently recorded this song, this is the first live recording) and "Why Me Lord" (first recording of this song, J.D. Sumner sings the verses and Elvis sings the chorus). This album also includes Elvis' first recording of "Let Me Be There", which was Olivia Newton-John's first big hit. I might mention that the Loggins & Messina hit "Your Mama Don't Dance" is part of the "Rock and Roll Medley", but the King only sings a tiny portion of that song. One final thing worth mentioning; the piano player plays the intro to "I Can't Stop Loving You" and Elvis sings "Blueberry Hill" instead, just to be funny (he does soon switch over to "I Can't Stop Loving You"). If you really want this concert on CD, you'll probably want the complete show instead of this one, but that is an expensive import.
