I love the sound of the interesting songs recorded........and I love the beautiful smile on his face on the cover...he never lost his charm....even in the waning years of his life!

Yep..I, too think the show is too important to be skipped. If you don´t have it until yet,..you can grab it now.
Despite the ugly cover..

Glad about the way Lefty and Natha see re-released imports ! I missed several of the original ones,so this one is on my list too and luckily dealer(s) is no problem for me. As for eventual forthcoming soundboards by FTD, maybe Cisco has some info about what's left ??? Always El.

My hope is FTD regarding releasing new soundboards. One of their next releases should/could be a soundboard from 1974. The march or june/july tour/ Lake tahoe 74 or maybe one of the Eugene shows from november 1976. There are many other shows that I can think of, but I assume that's wishful thinking.

think it is a good cover. Elvis looks happy with this release..
Natha (profilecontact) wrote on Dec 20, 2012report abuse
Ronaldv, I agree with you. As for the re-releases. There are so many cds we might have missed through the years, so there is nothing wrong with that. In the line of this reasoning I only wish that these labels are honest about it. There is no need to pretend more than what they actually offer. The history of ELVIS releases (both official and bootlegs) are full of statements by the companies that are (half) true or even (deliberately) wrong. All these cds are as they are and one either want them or not. Most of us know about the shows and ELVIS at that moment (or we can read it on valued CD info sites like CicoKing's), so the discussion should only be about the quality of the release.
I hope FTD has some new ones, though I seriously doubt that.

I think Ronald is right about the cover, it is ugly. I'm wondering if there are any new soundboards as well, but I highly doubt it. Whatever remains is most likely in the hands of FTD, which is fine, as long as they get around to releasing them. As for recirculating old soundboards, I'm okay with it. A lot of collectors never had a chance to own many of these shows, so it works for them, if they can find the dealers. That is the real question. Anyway, I think Cisco is right too. This release looks like a copy and paste job. Still, not bad if you don't own the FB original.

Ronald - I'm beginning to think that you're correct about the lack of "new" soundboards from any of the import labels leading to the assumption that what's left is in the hands of FTD. The last "unheard" soundboard that I can recall was on the excellent BoxCar set - that was the Madison, Wisc show from June of '77. As far as this show being incomplete - I don't recall many of the shows from this tour being recorded completely.
Ronaldv (profilecontact) wrote on Dec 19, 2012report abuse
Ugly cover. The bottom of the barrel has been reached again. I'm wondering, are there any soundboards left? I assume FTD is the only label left who owns them. Very sad indeed, but probably true.
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Dec 19, 2012report abuse
No label infos..?..looks like a copy and paste job from the old Baxter release for me..
blackdiamond (profilecontact) wrote on Dec 19, 2012report abuse
Love this (incomplete) show and I'm one of the lucky fans who has the Profile boxes. I think on this cd set the sound was pretty good. I wonder it could be better.
Orion (profilecontact) wrote on Dec 19, 2012report abuse
Not a bad show and the sound is good as were most of the May / June '75 soundboards. However, isn't that the late Johnny Hara on the cover (joke).
