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.
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!!Read more ›
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'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.
