3.0 out of 5 stars This concert was recorded live, right here in the Mid-South Coliseum, in Elvis' hometown, Memphis, Tennessee., January 2, 2007
This review is from: Elvis Recorded Live on Stage in Memphis (Audio CD)
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.
