Another live recording released by Memory records gives us the show of June 28, 1974 (8.30 PM) in Milwaukee, another show on the shelf.
Photos from Peter Haan’s archive are, again, put nicely together by Geert Hof (Solid Gold Elvis). A minor is that the liner notes are printed over the fold. Those liner notes give an interesting sketch of 1974 (the revival of Rock ‘n’ Roll), a huge part about “Recorded Live On Stage” and a paragraph about the actual show.
The sound quality isn't too good for a soundboard recording, sometimes it sounds like it is “floating” a little, but overall the show is very good to listen to. That is a good thing, since it is well worth to listen to. Elvis is in a very good mood, obviously enjoying himself and thus his audience. The set is pretty standard for a 1974 show, with “Trying To Get To You”, “Polk Salad Annie” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You” as (powerful) highlights. Another highlight is 15 seconds of “Turn Around, Look At Me” (which has a more complete version on “Gyrating Asheville”). All together this release shows that the final decline had not started yet and proofs that the rave reviews of this tour were rightful.
This time a soundboard recording on the Czech label, okay to listen to but disappointing for a soundboard recording. Anyway, buy it if you don't want to miss a good Elvis-performance.
This is a corrected review. First we assumed that it was an audience recording and the quality didn't give the reviewer a hint to even think about it. Our excuses for this mistake.
