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

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.

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!)

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.

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.

Well, it's now the end of September 2009 and those in charge of the treasure trove of Elvis Presley recordings have really missed a golden opportunity in not remastering and reissuing this seminal, great live album this past July/August, what would have been the 40th anniversary of this album's recordings and Elvis' retaking the stage for live concerts for the first time in nine years, as he said.

It is really tragic how RCA/SONY/BMG or whomever these days has control of the Elvis catelogue treats it so abysmally and with so little regard not only for those of us who've long been fans but also those who should be familiar with the greatest of all rockers.

Michael Jackson called HIMSELF the King of Pop and forced people, interviewers, his PR people, etc to call him that. But Elvis was given the title of The King Of Rock by others, his fans and those in the business, who knew there was none better.

Anyway, I am quite sad, when thinking of this particular recording, that this was not reissued with more material from those particular shows with a background/history of why the album and those concerts in 1969 were so important and how powerful and committed Elvis was to the music, the performances and his fans. And maybe a DVD with more of the rehearsals and performances that must still have never been seen in the "That's The Way It Is" film(s).

What a missed opportunity by the caretakers of The King Of Rock's music. And how his fans have missed out in being able to celebrate that specific time in Elvis' life and the great recordings made from that incredible set of shows.

Someone, somewhere, should hang their head in shame for not having had the respect for Elvis and his music, as well as his fans, in making something like this happen.
