Amazon.com

When Elvis Presley played Las Vegas between 1969 and '76, many rock & rollers screamed sellout. Today, every rock act plays Vegas. When Elvis came to town, it was the event. RCA--still uncovering unreleased stuff decades after the King's death--celebrates his Vegas legacy with two complete, previously unreleased shows from '69 and '70; a CD of previously released material from '70 (much of it taken from the classic Elvis Onstage, February 1970 album); and a fourth CD of mostly rarities from '74 and '75. The latter also includes a show from his disastrous '56 Vegas debut. Elvis began moving in a more mainstream direction in Vegas, and some may complain that the two unreleased shows are very similar to several other released shows from the same period. But, at least early on, the boy could still rock when he wanted and break hearts with a ballad. And the "new" 1970 show includes what may be the best live version of "Suspicious Minds" available. Besides, planeloads of fans from Japan and Europe flew to Nevada just to see as many of these shows as they could in a week--two a night for $15, which included dinner or two drinks! Redundancy was never an issue. --Bill Holdship

What can I say...? I'm speechless. It's what I had dreamt of ever since I watched "That's the Way It Is" at the Movies.
As I stated in my review to "That's the Way It Is" (Special Edition), the two compilation sets go together.
If you really want the most complete Concert and Rehearsal set of the Las Vegas period you have to buy them both.
Sorry for that, it's BMG's fault, not mine.
The original "From Memphis to Vegas", "On Stage" and "That's the Way It Is" (Original Album) left me disappointed, even though I loved to listen to the King in any form.
Chopped performances with no dialogues in-between, nor jokes, nor interaction with the audience.
While the NBC-Special Album was a smashing hit, even that one was marred by deletions and it did take years for anybody to realize that it would have been a good idea to re-release the entire uncut session.
The very first complete live recording I bought was "Elvis Live at the Madison Square Garden", but it was two years later than "That's the Way It Is" and the sound was mediocre to say the least.
Then came "Aloha from Hawaii", "Live in Memphis" and the sad "In Concert" (his last Live album). Amazingly though, if one was a mole digging deeper than official sources, one could find complete and uncut concerts on Bootleg record labels throughout the world. Unfortunately, they were all dreadfully bad in sound and recording techniques. You would hear hisses and roars throughout the performance.
The only other complete recording of a Concert I could get my hands on, just after Elvis' death was contained in a silvery boxed LP set called "Elvis Aaron Presley", but we never got to know where and when exactly it was recorded...

caveat emp·tor (mptôr) n. The axiom or principle in commerce that the buyer alone is responsible for assessing the quality of a purchase before buying.
Read the review. Be warned.
Disc 1. August 24, 1969 Dinner Show. This should have been the killer, as this is from Elvis first season comeback in Vegas. But it falls flat. RCA has better, more exciting, more explosive live performances from 69 (such as the Aug 23). Again, with CD 1 of the Vegas Box, we have Dennis Ferrante's infamous "selective-revisionist instrument-exclusion syndrome." This is the process whereby Ferrante decides to delete certain instruments from the mix, such as a piano, as if they were never part of the original show! Ferrante doesn't give you the show as it happened, but rather, as he believes it should have happened.
Remember those wonderful piano fills that Larry Muhoberac uses to dress up In The Ghetto, which we've heard on "Here I Go Again?" Well, you're going to have a difficult time even hearing the keyboard on MOST tracks on disc 1. Absolutely bizzare. Ferrante also eliminated the tympani drum from the mix.
The 69 material was professionally recorded on 1 inch 8 track open reel tape, at 15 inches per second. These are good recordings. The potential for a good mix was there. But they blew it. Of course, since the original recording was good, the sound here is crisp and clean. But the vibe is WRONG--no piano--just throbbing bass and rythm guitar. It just sounds sort of lifeless. Crisp and clear, but lifeless.
I was really looking forward to hearing this 69 material. RCA has never released a complete, unedited show from the 69 season. And they still haven't, as this show does have it's monologue cut and resequenced.

"Elvis Live in Las Vegas" should have provided a four-CD wealth of never-before-released material, but inexplicably comes up short. There are no complaints about the first two discs. RCA opens the vaults a crack by presenting excellent shows from August 1969 and August 1970, which feature Presley at his peak. Unfortunately, RCA waters the cream by adding a third disc of PREVIOUSLY RELEASED material from 1970 and 1972. To make matters worse, part of Disc 4 rehashes the same songs from Presley's 1956 Vegas engagement. We've heard this stuff before! Why didn't RCA release a set of previously unissued concerts and give Elvis fans value for money? Instead, we're asked to pay a four-disc price for what is essentially a 2 1/2-disc set. No wonder the bootleg market continues to thrive.

Throughout the '70s', Elvis released several live albums that showcased his incomparable performing skills. This 4- cd boxed set captures him in Vegas, where he gave some of his best performances for the last 8 years of his life.
Disc 1 is from 1969, when Elvis began his long - running stint at the International. Here is where you'll find electrifying live versions of "Blue Suede Shoes", "Love Me Tender", "Hound Dog", "Jailhouse Rock", "Don't Be Cruel", and others. Similarly, his vocal performances shine on "In The Ghetto" and "Are You Lonesome Tonight" (dedicated to Mrs. Parker, the Colonel's wife who was recuperating from surgery). Also included are two monologues that are very interesting and at times very funny.
Disc 2 is essnetially the same setlist as the one featured on "The That's The Way It Is" (the boxed set). But it was recorded on a different than that performance, and there are some welcome additions to the set. He gives a powerful reading of B.J. Thomas's "I Just Can't Help Believin'". Also included are strong cover versions of "Something", "You've Lost That Feelin'", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water", plus the expected hits that became all too prominent in Elvis's early shows.
Disc 3 is very good as well, its only flaw being that none of the tracks are previously unreleased. The first 15 tracks are from 1970's "On Stage". Among the highlights are "Let It Be Me", "Release Me", and his smash hit rendition of "The Wonder Of You" (# 9 in November of 1970). The rest of the tracks are from 1972, when Elvis was going through many problems with his marriage to Priscilla.
