It's a very bad sounding CD,compared to the old Baxter title. The sound quality is totally ruined here. Audionics is basically is a good label,but this release is substandard. I'm totally disappointed.

SnowMan, I'm really interested in the difference in sound between the Fort Baxter and the Audionics .As I wrote before : I cannot compare because I never had the chance to buy the Fort Baxter release. So could you pls give me some info : what is the real difference ? Bass, treble, midrange, voice not in front enough, distortion etc ....? ( I hear no distortion on the Audionics. ) So pls explain what you mean by inferiority of the Audionics . Just asking ! Always El.

as far as I'm concerned. FTD has announced the release of this show in the near future. Let's wait and see what the comments will be after their release, probably some complaining and moaning by the usual same. Always El.

Benny Scott,you have to compare A HOT WINTER NIGHT and AT FULL FORCE to hear that the second one is very inferior soundwise. If you only has the latter,then you might think that it sounds ok,but compared to A HOT WINTER NIGHT it's a disaster.

SnowMan,Fly-Trouble,Zoltan84,HangLoose and some others : am I one of the lucky-ones ?
The copy I received is a very, I repeat very good one! Very good and clear sound, treble, midrange, bass, voice, band, the clearly audible reaction of the public wich doesn't disturb at all , you name it : they all sound pico bello, so I must say : thank you Audionics ! So pls don't bash Ciscoking anymore, it's not his fault if you were unlucky . Maybe something happened during one of the pressings of this CD, and as result a number of bad-sounding ones. I must agree with Paulex : the sound is GOOD and IMHO very good !I can't compare with the Fort Baxter, because I never had the chance to purchase it, but I am very happy with this release .And as for Ciscoking : I keep my 100% trust in his opinions . Always El.

Even a CD-R copy of the Fort Baxter CD is much better than this. At least soundwise.
SnOwMan (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 19, 2010report abuse
Ciscoking,i can't believe that you still recommend this release to ANYONE. This is a faulty product that's not even useful for those who don't have this concert. Even a CD-R

It arrived here today. When i listened to it i couldn't believe to my ears. It sounds awful compared to A HOT WINTER NIGHT IN DALLAS. The booklet is beautiful as always,but i'm totally disappointed. If you already have the Fort Baxter version,then save your money and buy something else. Something more worthwhile.

Clearly not any more than what we can expect from your comment.

The Audionics label is from the Czech Republic. So don't be surprised if the sound is crap. What else you'd expect from beer drinking Eastern Europeans?

Ken Jensen's opinion about the Audionics label: "They have released total junk such as High Voltage! and The Request Box. What’s wrong with them, you might ask? The former stops dead when it reaches "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" (first version). It won’t play beyond that point, so the CD is useless. There is a similar problem with one of the 1975 CDs. I think, perhaps, I was able to play it with extreme difficulty. Or perhaps I couldn’t. Can’t remember. I tried playing those CDs on my iBook, on the stereo, on the DVD. No luck anywhere. I don’t think the 1976 show came in improved sound at all. I returned it and received a new copy. Same problem. Returned that one too and got my money back. It’s not surprising that they have messed up the Dallas show."

The sound was restored in a garage and not in a renowned studio. With all due respect to bootleggers,this is far the worst release of 2010 so far.
HangLoose (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 15, 2010report abuse
Got it today and i'm shocked! I'm deeply disappointed in the Audionics label. This is a c.r.a.p. CD.
Erika Freiburger (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 15, 2010report abuse
So i won't get a replacement CD? I can't believe that such a bad sounding CD was put out by Audionics:( I want my money back!

Review by hm80ep: "I got the new Audionics release today and I'm afraid I'd have to agree with TheCoolKing, Joern, and (partially) with KB. The sound on "At Full Force" is worse than it was on "A Hot Winter Night In Dallas" from 12 years ago (although I wouldn't call it a disaster). How is that possible I do not know but something must have gone terribly wrong at the 'renowned studio' that Audionics used to restore and master their 'DAT copy of the original mono master tape.' On a more positive note, the booklet is stunning but that's not what most of us buy music CDs for, is it"

All copies are faulty,not only yours. Here's another review by TheCoolKing: "I received my copy too. When I put it in my CD player, I first thought that my loudspeakers were damaged. I think the sound is very bad and I didn't play more than a few minutes of the CD. Will put it on Ebay tonight. Sorry!"
Erika Freiburger (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 15, 2010report abuse
Just received it today,but it seems i got a faulty copy. The sound quality is very bad. Anyone knows how could i get a replacement CD? I guess the sound is bad only on my copy. Thank you for any help. Love,Erika

Another review by Joern: "The new Audionics sounds crappy in comparison to the old Fort Baxter Original. I do own the CD and heard it by myself. It's a pile of junk."
FLY-TROUBLE! (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 15, 2010report abuse
Ciscoking,you say that you recommend the 'At Full Force' CD. May i ask WHY??????? It's a sonic disaster compared to 'A Hot Winter Night In Dallas'! It's not only weaker,but it's much weaker! From now on i can't trust in your so called honest reviews,sorry. And finally,let me share KB's review with you,taken from the elviscollectors site:

"Sorry guys, I recieved my copy today, and all I can say is D I S A S T E R . I tried to compare it with the "A Hot Winter Night In Dallas" and the result is tragic. "At Full Force" is not listenable, the sound is muffled, distant and the output level is tooo low... It sounds like a 10-th generation copy of "A Hot Winter Night In Dallas". It even lacks the damn force... It's ironic since the title is "At Full Force"...

Why did they even release the cd when they knew that result is horrible? All in all, I spent my hard earned 25 euros on the usleess cd, and the guys behind the Audionics lebel simply LIED when they mentioned the sound improvement. How, for Christ sake, in 21 century with all the sound devices available someone can srew the sound sooo bad??? Bloody amateurs.

So once again, the sound is pure sh*t, and in my opinion it's not even good for the people who don't have the old Baxter boot. I'll try to sell my copy, but I wouldn't pay more then 10 euros for that c.r.a.p. And I'll think twice before I buy a Audionics cd with the 'improved sound' next time. My advice to everyone- avoid it like the plague."

Hey Linda, I thought "C-R-A-P" was the common judgement of Cisco's when he didn't like the release ;-)
Smile:-) (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 13, 2010report abuse
Please guys.... Give it a break. Actually a relevant dilemma, but if you are going to continue with your sharp tongues, please continue somewhere else.

Personally I will skip this release since I'm lucky enough to own the old Fort Baxter release. But I would not hesitate to recomend the new Audionics version to those who are not in possession of this show. Even if the sound is not up to standard. It is the only way to get hold of this concert these days, it is a soundboard and the show is a must have for all concert fans:) Good luck!

"I am just a guy who shares his knowledge with others" - Yep. But not for free:) "why don`t you do this" - Because we don't get free CD's for our reviews.
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
Absolutely right,..NO label is perfect...all of them had some bad releases..but we cannot deny the fact that the aforementioned labels are the best re packaging and contents..and price related to what we get,..just add Rainbow Records. and Graceland Records..is this wrong to mention..? Shall I say SR or Wonderland Records is the best or what do you expect..that would be the greatest lie ever..shall I say a Legendary Performer Vol.15 is great..? What do you expect..? And hey..I am no trendsetter I am just a guy who shares his knowledge with others...why don`t you do this..? Just do it..instaead of talking nuts..
Linda Kovalcik (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
Nice try,Cocky,but you're wrong again. I don't have any connection to the terrible SR label. But for free CD's i would gladly praise their shi..y releases. Just like you are praising the Audionics/Gravel Road/Straight Arrow releases for some reward. A few CD's from Audionics,a few gifts from Straight Arrow,nice digipacks from Gravel Road and ol' Cisco's CD collection will be bigger than ever. An alluring way building your collection on other people's cost.
FLY-TROUBLE! (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
With all due respect for Ciscoking,it's impossible not to see that his reviews are one-sided. What's behind this,i don't know,but there isn't any label that gave us only good releases. Even some of the FTD's are faulty. Many of the Audionics releases needs speed-correction. There were several crappy Madison releases,too. And so on. There are no perfect labels. There are bad ones,there are average ones and there are good ones,but none of them are perfect. About partial reviews: these so called reviewers should go to the ...... There's no need to mislead new fans.
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
Not 20 Linda ,..25..lol...sorry..coudn`t resist....from what fraction are you..SR..?...Sorry..only kidding..
Linda Kovalcik (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
No... i didn't state that he only writes 'positive' reviews about imports. I stated that he writes ONLY positive comments about the Audionics/Gravel Road/Straight Arrow releases. Everything put out by these labels got only postive reviews from Ciscoking. Isn't it strange a little bit? Don't get me wrong,Carpentros007,most releases by the above mentioned labels are good. But some of them are not... And all of them got positive reviews from Ciscoking. Even the bad ones.
Buy heyyy,let's be fair with the Cocky guy. For free CD's many of us would write only postive reviews,wouldn't we? Imagine,you get all the releases from the top labels for free. At least 20 CD's in a year. And all you have to do to get them is writing short praises on a few forums. So somehow i can't blame him.
drjohncarpenter0117 (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
Linda,sorry you are wrong to say but you Ciscoking only writes 'positive' reviews about imports? there are other well informed web-sites where his advice about 100's of imports,good bad and ugly and has been a great deal of help over many years for me in trying to decide what is a essential buy and what's not?....so please take a look around the www. and see just how well in formed his reviews are on this subject and i find it hard to believe he is in someone's pocket regarding pushing reviews on imports.?.....you know he may be a well informed top class Elvis fan.
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
Linda...again..it`s just me..little Cisco...don`t follow my advice..just skip it..hey..no problem..really..
Linda Kovalcik (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
How interesting that Ciscoking always writes ONLY positive comments about these Audionics/Gravel Road/Straight Arrow reissues. Sounds like a commercial to me. I wonder what he gets in exchange for this. Free CD's? Or money? Or does he do it to support a bootlegger friend? I don't know but somehow his reviews doesn't always sound honest to me. If you want to hear honest reviews then listen to those people's opinion who don't get anything for their review. Just my opinion.
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 12, 2010report abuse
I have it.I like it, I recommend it..for those who haven`t got the old release just essential...!

Hi Paulex, thanks a lot for the info !!! I'm glad the sound is good, so I'll welcome this release as a new adding to my collection. As I wrote before, I don't own the earlier FB-release. Thanks again .Much obliged.Always El.

Does not surpise me much...They said they used the same source from 1998 when they announced this cd. So it turns out the old boot is even better, hahaha. What a joke! Who's foolin' who?

Paulex thanks, I know enough...rip off again...
Paulex (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 11, 2010report abuse
Hi Bennie, Sound is good! No doubt about that. It surely is a soundboard. And I am certain you will very much enjoy the show, because E is in grate shape. I just think that the sound of the old FB is much better (clearer might be the right word, although I'm not sure that is the right way to say that in english). I tried this cd because nowadays we get a lot of earlier released shows with socalled improved sound. Apparently this is just a sales line! LOL! I once discovered the difference between the old Vicky's On Tour shows and the releases of the same shows by the guys of the Triangle label......WOW! I wish I could say the same from this 76 show, but I will keep playin' the FB one!
benny scott (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 11, 2010report abuse
Paulex, according to the press-release this is a recording straight from the mixing-desk. Is the sound bad ? I ordered "At Full Force" too 'cause I never had the chance to obtain the FB. Waiting for my copy. Always El.
Paulex (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 11, 2010report abuse
just got the Full Force cd. I decided to listen to the sound of the old FB first. Right after that I placed Full Force in the cd player.....and what a disapointment that was! Off course it's my own opinion, but I believe the FB is much better soundwise than this "new and improved" Full Force. This was once but never again. I do not believe this "sound improvement" bs ever again! lol!

Vegas Varity 3,At full force and Get down and Dirty all in the next couple of days.?...it never rains it pours sometimes in the Elvis import world, can't wait for reviews when we have all had a chance to listen to the good,the bad and the ugly.........by the way Ciscoking rules!!.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 10, 2010report abuse
Did Ciscoking said something specific about the sound of At Full Force compared to the Fort Boxter release ?
benny scott (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 10, 2010report abuse
Got an e-mail from my supplier that both releases are on their way ! So " Get Down And Dirty" must have been released already. Looking forward.... so much more because Ciscoking gave a possitive reaction concerning those releases. And as I have all the reasons to trust the man I hope these CD's will be a treat ! Always El.
Ton Bruins (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 10, 2010report abuse
I am very curious about the sound improvement of At Full Force...
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Mar 10, 2010report abuse
I am looking forward to both...Elvis at his best live in 1976 and in the studio ...
