A new import release by the Graceland Records label is the CD entitled "Closing Night" with a soundboard recording of Elvis' February 23, 1970 slosing show. The CD, from the label that previously released “Elvis’ Second Night" in 2005, comes with a 16 pages booklet.
The press release:
“Elvis was again in Las Vegas, and the result of the sensational comeback 6 months earlier was, that the shows sold out even faster than in August.” Stein Erik Skar “Concert years 1969-1977”
Closing Night (23rd February 1970) Soundboard.
This is by far an outstanding show. Elvis is performing longer than usual. This show is from 2 reels which have been put together for the first time on cd. Digitally re-mastered and restored to maximum listening pleasure. As you can expect from Graceland records, we offer the best quality possible.
Now for the first time ever, the complete soundboard recording of the February 23rd, 1970 closing show. It includes a 16 page full color booklet, with many photos of that season mainly from the same show. Refreshing lay-out in the style of the Vegas souvenirs.
Plus great stories about this season and necessary facts for listening it over and over again!
- For the first time, Elvis on stage at the piano, giving a forceful rendition of “Lawdy, Miss Clawdy” and playing a part of “Blueberry hill.”
- On electric guitar, playing “One Night” and “It’s Now Or Never”
- See see Rider is, for the last time, a non-opening song
