Couple of songs from this album you can find on 'Live In Las Vegas' box, cd 4. I simply don't like their sound quality (it's poor and boring), and I hope that ftd would be able to fix that. (DEA have done great job on 'From Sunset Blvd To Paradise Road', remastering the sound - I don't want to listen Live In Las Vegas cd 4 any more when I know that the sound quality could be 10 times better). People at BMG/FTD should buy and listen some bootlegs to see how to handle with live material in proper manner.

Interesting to read of a CD containing an unreleased Elvis concert in good quality described as "another waste of time". Some of us are obviously spoilt by the amount of unreleased recordings being issued by BMG/FTD. How things change, ten years ago everybody was crying out for these recordings to be released!

I can´t wait to lay my hands on it ! Sounds very good. Elvis is this season in good vioce, so what do we want more ? I hope we will get a concert from the May or June season ?!? TCB.

This isn't just another 'boring Vegas show' the listing differs from 'known' listings of the 30th March 75' Dinner show and who knows maybe its a show i havn't even heard(and iv'e heard all that's available that season!) This season needs to be 'represented properly' and i guess they don't have the opening night show and besides the 'bonus' tracks are all first versions of songs at this engagement or 'rare' and that's VERY interesting too. Looking forward to it!

Another boring 70s show. I'll buy it to express my support, but I think BMG, maybe, doesn't have something of interest anymore. It's sad but it was predictable. Happily, "Elvis is back" is coming. Allways a milestone in Elvis career, after 45 years.

I'm sure this will be a good cd, as for people being fed up with his repertoire, Elvis tried to change it in 74, but the audience didn't like it("If you Talk In Your Sleep" August 19, 1974) As I See it he really wanted to make a change, but somehow he was stuck with his image!
Looking forward to this.

I remember reading somewhere that the dignitaries (Barron Hilton etc.) that attended opening nights were fed up with hearing Elvis perform the same songs all the time so they pressured The Colonel into getting Elvis to change his repertoire every now and again. This was allegedly how shows like this came about. But Elvis "being Elvis" would change back to his tried and tested after a few shows.

Elvis' song line-ups for this engagement showed two things...he wanted to do his current stuff and take it easier after being in the hospital. A lot of his current hits are included, but almost nothing from earlier in his career, which surely disappointed some in the crowd. But, at least the majority are good choices and are actually his hits. Elvis had a nice string of Top 20's in the mid 70's and they are well represented. As for show length, 15 tunes is about the standard by this point. His shows usually clocked in at around 60-70 min. throughout the 70's (with exceptions of course), until 1977 where he would barely get in 45-50 min (thanks to band intros) and about a dozen tunes. But, more important than length, song selection, etc. is Elvis' mood and vocals that is what makes a show.

From my own research, it looks certain to me, that this concert is incomplete, missing at least 1 song probably more.

Elvis wasn't exactly giving long concerts on that engagement if that's a full show, was he? :)

As long as it's not a lousy 1977 concert.........

Well, good news. Hope "Big boss man" will be the complete dinner show from march, 30rd 75, as announced earlier, and not a compilation of two concerts.
