Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

When Elvis Presley's late-1960s comeback is discussed, talk generally centers on two events--his 1968 NBC-TV special and the recordings made in Memphis at American Studios shortly thereafter. There was actually a third key event--Presley's first Las Vegas engagement in 13 years (he flopped the first time), which kicked off at the brand-new International Hotel on July 31, 1969. The event is downplayed now since Vegas has become so synonymous with the King's decline--but this was a revitalized Presley, and, for the most part, he rocked. The white jumpsuits and "My Way" would come later; for this show, Presley wore a black karate suit and was backed by one of the hottest rockabilly bands on earth, with the legendary James Burton on lead guitar. Presley does early hits, Sun stuff, a Willie Dixon blues tune, and his latest singles ("In the Ghetto" and "Suspicious Minds"). The furthest he steps outside his oeuvre is a cover of the Bee Gees' "Words." If only he'd continued in this vein. As it is, this stands with Onstage, February 1970 as his finest live recording. --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars The Comeback Continues July 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Elvis' first legitimate live album remains one of his best. The seven-minute version of "Suspicious Minds" surpasses the studio recording. Another highlight is a rare performance of Willie Dixon's "My Babe." Though abridged, "In Person" displays a revitalized Presley in triumphant form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bless my soul! October 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is Elvis' first live album, and his best. It doesn't feature one single show, but rather highlights from several shows from his August 1969 engagement in Las Vegas. Elvis was really fired up here. He put his all into every song, even the older songs that he tended to sleepwalk through at later concerts. Four songs made their first recorded appearances here, "Johnny B. Goode", "I Can't Stop Loving You", "My Babe" and "Words". For some reason, they used a version of "Johnny B. Goode" where Elvis forgets to sing the second verse, and instead sings the third verse twice. It still rocks, though. The rest of the songs are live versions of songs Elvis had previously recorded. They are all good, especially the epic seven minute version of "Suspicious Minds". If you only get one Elvis live album, it should be this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Rock 'n'Roll All The Way June 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When Elvis returns to play before a paying audience in late July 1969, after a eight year, four month layoff to make Hollywood movies, he does so with a vengence. The shows taped in August 1969 capture a 33 year old legend who wishes to remind his audience that the fire still burns. This album is ample evidence of that fire, with an eight minute version of his soon to be number one single "Suspicious Minds" that astonishes. Some of the ballad arrangements are, admittedly, weak and pedestrian, but no fault can be found with the vocalist or musicians. One listen to Elvis's rather ironic version of "Johnny B. Goode" tells the story: they rock the house! Perhaps someday RCA/BMG will see fit to issue a single, complete performance from this engagement, but until then this serves as the best example of the "mature," rockin' Elvis Presley. (Note: two Aug'69 tracks snuck onto the following year's 'On Stage' album, "Yesterday" and "Runaway." The latter, a Del Shannon cover, harbors an amazing James Burton lead guitar solo and Elvis's stunning vocals turn the song from one of longing and regret to triumph. Check it out!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis's Short Lived Comeback Peak January 31, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The 1968 Comeback Special was too brassy and was backed by corny TV sound. But this album from the very 1st season of Elvis's engagement in Vegas August 1969 is clutch. He wasn't sure he was going to make it so he put all he had into this show. He was dressed in black, thin, tan and healthy. He had incredible energy and focus. He has vicious precison in this album. Even the old songs snap with power. He kicks tail. After this season Elvis was never the same. He returned to Vegas in February 1970 playing much more sappy music. His old hits reduced to fast medleys. But this album he cared. There is a balance of romantic songs and some kick tail rock n' roll. He's incredibly impressive and the audience is stunned by his power. This is why he was called the King. His zenith only lasted one summer. His concerts from then on would become sloppy, forgotten words, old songs run through too fast. It sounds like he's on speed. This album is the way Elvis should have stayed, on top of his game, but he didn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the greatest live album ever made!!!!!!!!! November 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow!!! This album is awesome. Let me describe your listening experience.
You put it in and at first you hear a horn intro most likely associate with jazz music. Then,you hear a guitat and just a few seconds later Elvis begins to sing Blue Suede Shoes. This leads into the greatest version of Johnny B. Goode Elvis ever did. "Here we go again" Elvis says before delivering a rocking version of his classic All Shook Up. "This is my first live appearence in 9 years",he states, "I've appeared dead before but this is my first live one" he jokes before delivering a beautiful rendition of Are You Lonesome Tonight. now it's time for the message song. "When I uh tried to think of a special song for tonight you know a message song I uh I uh what'd I do? Oh yeah I came up with this-I looked her square in the eye 'cause that's all she had was one big square eye right in the middle of her. I said baby,she said 'hu hu',she was weird to, you know. I looked her square in the eye,it was a very tender touching moment,I said baby baby baby YOU AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT A HOUND DOG". Wow,what an awsome version!!! He then performs the country cassic I Can't Stop Loving You, followed by a spiced up version of Ricky Nelson's My Babe. Then he does the Mystery Train/Tiger Man medley,always a highlight of his shows. Now he does the Bee Gees classic ballad Words, the best on the album in my opinion. Next up are two of his newer hits, the powerful In The Ghetto and a 7 minute jam of Suspicious Minds. He ends the disc with Can't Help Falling In Love.
This is a must have if you are an Elvis fan. If you aren't buy it, you will be.
