Cover Art Rock Back The Clock

This is the cover art of the upcoming Straight Arrow 2CD release "Rock Back The Clock" featuring Elvis' 1975 New Years Eve show. From the press release: The main reason for this new and ultimate Pontiac '75 release is that the sound quality is excellent for an off-line recording. Since no soundboard recording of this show exists, only audience taped documentation of this historic event is available. Over the last 15 years, three independent audience recordings were collected and on each source there was a major problem: excessive echo caused by the large stadium space. This new source is very clear and most importantly, almost echo-free because the person with recorder was sitting very close to the sound system. This new CD will contain a 24 page booklet with approx. 60 photos. Some of them are unpublished, some not, but they all were carefully hand-picked from the almost 150 available shots to give the listener a visual overview of The Event. You will see Elvis before and after the show as well as in both jumpsuits on stage. An unusual photo of the Silverdome stage before the concert is included as well as the review from the local newspaper, original ticket stub and show poster. To make the release even more authentic, sleeve notes were written by a fan that was so happy to be there... The “Straight Arrow” team wishes you a Happy New Year 2008 and hopes that you will enjoy this special New Years Eve release! Tracklisting: CD-1: 01.

Foony show when Elviss split pants his. Best versions of 'Wooden Hart' that he ever didd but 'My Way' started without a start so it hasn't got a start. Little Lisa was there on the night and sitting on Vernons kneee for the whole show. She has pretty. The TCP band were rocking and rockings their socks offf for sure on the rocking numbers but I cry that Glenn Hardi playeb his last shoo with The King this night. Oh sadness for the ones who were there with binocoolars.

This concert was not only one of the last Very Good Shows of Elvis career (not a truly 5 Star because he didn't star from the beginning “My way” and didn't had the courage to sing Wooden Heart, loosing himself a bit when he ask to a 60.500 audience crowd: what do you want to ear?) but it is a truly land mark because it was the very last time that the main TCB band played together: For the last time in this concert we had James Burton, Jerry Scheff, Ronnie Tutt, John Wilkinson and Glenn D. Hardin! A Piece of History. Just send it out!
