The "Audionics" label that released "Across The Country Vol. 2" containing the Huntsville, May 31st, 1975 evening show earlier this year, will release the CD "Adios Huntsville". This release contains the last of Elvis' five legendary Huntsville concerts from the May/June 1975 tour, as recorded from the soundboard on June 1st, 1975, 8:30 P.M. - no edits, the complete tape. The CD has a running time of almost 64.
It was one of the the best shows of the tour, and a happy, humorous and good-voiced Elvis delivered excellent versions of songs like "The Wonder Of You", "Polk Salad Annie", "T.R.O.U.B.L.E.", "I Can't Stop Loving You", "I'll Remember You" and "An American Trilogy".
A first generation DAT copy of the original mono soundboard recording was used for this project. As the majority of die-hard fans know, none of the May / June 1975 tour soundboards were recorded in their entirety. This time, only "C. C. Rider" and "I Got A Woman" / "Amen" were not recorded. The producers added these tracks from another concert, as recorded from the soundboard in Dayton, OH, 06.10.'74 8:30 P.M. These two tracks were released previously, but here they appear in superior audio from an alternate source.
As you've come to expect from us, this CD is accompanied with a classy 16-page full color booklet containing liner notes as written by a renowned Elvis expert, who was lucky enough to be in the Huntsville crowd on that day. The majority of the photographs in the booklet were taken during the Huntsville, AL, June 1st, 1975 8:30 P.M. show, where Elvis wore the "Black Eagle" suit. Several additional photographs from the Huntsville, June 1st, 1975 2:30 P.M. concert and from the Dayton, OH, October 6th, 1974 8:30 P.M. show were added to "complete the picture".
As Elvis said: "I'd like to say something, can I raise my hand... we have had a fantastic time here in Huntsville... a little rough getting in and out of my hotel, but that's all right. But you've really been fantastic down here. If you want us back in Huntsville, just let us know, and we shall be back." Now every fan will have the opportunity to return to Huntsville with the King again & again, for an unforgettable night of Elvis magic.
