Yet another re-releae...but I got news: The soundquality on this one is better then on "The Final Curtain" CD...Elvis' performance stays bad of course...sounds very weak and uninterested...doesn't even sings "Hurt" or "Unchained Melody", that says a lot..

Sticking to the subject : this is a 1977 concert and the year 1977 (and even 1976, 1975 19... ) Elvis-wise is obviously not everybody's cup of tea. I'm the first to agree that Our Man wasn't in good shape, but no one can deny that not everything was bad, there were some good performances too. In spite of his declining health, Elvis always cared for his fans and tried to please them untill the bitter end. Listening to one of the,let's say, "less good " concerts gives me a feeling of admiration for The Man belting and singing his heart out to please his audience(s). So,"to whom it may concern" : please accept the fact that some fans (maybe more than one thinks), I'm not saying "enjoy", but still find it worthwhile to listen to these concerts. It's even not the first time I read postings on this site of members asking fot the release of "Elvis In Concert" on CD/FTD or even on DVD. And by the way : there are even fans who don't like his SUN-stuff and prefer his later work. Do they have to be crucified for that ??? By all means NO. They have the right to like or dislike something, and that should be respected. Always El.

Jesse and Harvey: for these kind of conversations we built a personal mail option: your argument has nothing to do with the subject anymore. I for one agree fully with Harvey but then again, this has nothing to do with this release, so please stick to the subject or risk a warning both!

Yeah Hank is The Man. "Move It On Over" is the Big Bang of rock 'n roll in my book. Harvey, that sounds like a blast, but can we have a couple of beers instead?

Ah, Luke the Drifter. Now that's my kind of language. Can we do coffee and a Steven Segal movie sometime, Jessie? (though I doubt that's your real name...)

You've never walked in that man's shoes or saw things through his eyes Or stood and watched with helpless hands while the heart inside you dies.So help your brother along the way no matter where he starts.For the same God that made you made them too these men with broken hearts.

Like is said, i really DON'T care what and how you think,you think all your statements are based upon truth, you don't respect other fans opinions,and if you cannot win a debate you going to spit fire. steer clear from me.
Harvey Alexander (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 21, 2011report abuse
God forbid that anyone should tell the truth on here. Let's revert to keeping eveything sugar-coated, shall we. Elvis was still great in 1977. His shows were all fantastic and he died because of Colonel Parker. Happy now?

Well swell for you Mr Harvey Alexander,you have more childish points you wanna share with us? i really don't care what you have to say and what you think, ..don't worry Loesje, i wil not waste my time anymore on so-called fans like him.

Jean Claude Van Damme. How do you all feel about his movies? Betcha all love 'em, too. Quality stuff, eh? What's being 'understanding' got to do with it? I fully appreciate that you can't change history and that Elvis ended up a tragic character. I wish I could change that, but I can't. No-one can. But there's no need to constantly re-live it by listening to '77 soundboards full of false-starts, slurred speech and lacklustre performances. I've heard that stuff and it sucks. That's why I'll avoid it. And Steven Segal, too.

Thnx Benny and Natha Well spoken my friends, and as for you mr.harvey alexander..i do not get a kick of Elvis Dying on stage,as far as i can see you r a person with little understanding, read again what benny and Natha wrote to you in response they know what they are talking about,hopefully you learn from it.
Natha (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 20, 2011report abuse
Well stated Benny. Your analysis is well done. This discussion is repeated time and again whenever something from the late seventies is released. It is tiresome to read and respond. I am happy though that Harvey is talking in the sense of 'our hero', which shows his sincerity and in this case also his concern about the last period.
By the way Harvey, as you refer to Steven Seagal Movies as not being your kind of movie, I am sure that a lot of Movies you like (if you like any!) will be regarded as horrible by others. So please do leave this kind of personal dislikes or favors out of this thread.

Never liked Elvis in 1977. Never. Never saw, although I have it, more than once Elvis concerts from 19 and 21 do June 1977. But recently I had another look in some selected songs from Rapid City (21 June) in YouTube. And I found Nick Cave' s words very very assertive and true "“On those last concerts (Cave says) just before he died, you see a man who fought an incredible struggle with life. It’s one of the most brutal things ever captured on film. In those pictures, he has a unique glow of heroism.” To me, Pedro, that Elvis is not my Elvis, My King… but is my Hero… for sure… I won’t by this. “But to each his own I suppose…”

Harvey, I really don't think it's a matter of getting kicks from listening to a man "dying on stage" like you describe it. That would be morbid wouldn't it ? Some buy it because they want everything (I'm not part of those, but have no problem at all with the collectors !), some buy it because of historical reason, and after listening there's a chance they shake their head and ask themselves " how could it end like this ?", and some can buy it simply because they want to take the good with the bad of their idol. As far as you're concerned: I can understand you, asking yourself "why", that's ok with me, no problem, you have the right to, but it would be nice if you tried to understand the view of others . Nothing personal ! Always El.
Harvey Alexander (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 20, 2011report abuse
That figures. But why would anyone want to hear our hero at his lowest ebb? This show is very poor. Elvis can hardly speak for tripping over his tongue and his overall performance is horrible. So why would anyone want to hear it? As well as liking Steven Segal movies (doh!) do you also get your kicks from listening to a man dying on stage?

Every Elvis fan should decide for themselves if they wanna buy Elvis concerts from 1977,don't put Elvis fans in a corner for buying 77 material.
Jesse Garon Presley (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 19, 2011report abuse
And your comment will not change the fact that the fans wil still buy this material,no matter what you think.
Harvey Alexander (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 19, 2011report abuse
And your comment proves why releases like this continue to sell.
Jesse Garon Presley (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 19, 2011report abuse
I think with your reaction you have made the most pathetic remark about Elvis 77 concerts ever,what has Steven Seagal got to do with Elvis Concerts, In a concert you sing , you don't act.
Harvey Alexander (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 19, 2011report abuse
Elvis concerts from 1977 are like Steven Segal movies - you just don't go there.

In terms of sound quality, there are some outstanding soundboard recordings from 1977. Just listen to Fort Baxter's "Moody Blue and Other Great Performances" and you'll know what I mean. That being said, it's a shame that Elvis was falling apart in. I haven't heard this particular show, but from the set list you can see that Elvis didn't sing any of the later day show stoppers. And it looks like Sherill Nielsen earned his money that night too. I'm a serious fan, and I love the 70's in particular, but I'm going to pass this one by.
Smile:-) (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 17, 2011report abuse
The soundboard from two days later must be brought to the surface! At least for historical and sentimental reasons. FTD must release Elvis In Concert in the classic album series! Oh yeah, oh yeah baby:)))))
ElvisCriticsSuck (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 16, 2011report abuse
Should be interesting! My friend actually made a cassette/audio recording that night of the show, if I remember Elvis did not sing "Hurt"(?). Madison was also the scene of Elvis breaking up a fight at a local gas station there, before the show, there is still a Marker on the site. Fifteen Years later, on June 24th,, Wayne Newton played at the same venue, he had a Tribute Song to Elvis at the time called"The Letter", I had let him know before his concert about Elvis being there, and that night he talked about how great a person Elvis was. Hope I can find a Reasonably-Priced Source for this new CD here, in The States!

This is trash and the graphics were put together by a two year old... don't waste your money... the show is one of his worst from 1977...

Forgot to say that when I get it I'll put the front cover on the computer and turn the "M" upside down and make it a "W". Simples.

I've ordered this because it's a soundboard (I've stopped buying ARs as well) and I only managed to get Final Curtain on CDR, so simply an upgrade to silver CD.
benny scott (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 16, 2011report abuse
Real thanks for the info Cisco ! I'm really not a die-hard collector who wants everything, but I more saw it as one of the very last concerts before Elvis passed away and thus interesting to have. Had it been an audience recording I wouldn't have ordered it, I stopped buying ARs . Take care. Always El.
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 16, 2011report abuse
benny....it`s only for die-hard collectors who don`t have the box and must have every show..it`s one of the worst our man ever gave.. really..it`s for sure just lifted from the box..stating MI instead of WI make these guys amateurs for me.. well.. perhaps agenda for a second run..who knows..;-) seems like a quick buck anyway. therefore the hard word..perhaps a bit h arsh agreed but it kind of nails it..if you want the show by all means..and are a true collector please forget my statement below..

Hi Jesse and drjohn, don't own the previous release, so I'll go for it.Would indeed have been better if the maker(s) of this product should have taken more attention about the right state, but if the sound is ok it'll do for me. Have to confess I'm interested in every period of Our Man's career . Always El.

Ah the old trick of bootlegging a bootleg??......nothing new in that as this practice has been done for years,do these 'New' labels not know we Elvis fans know our stuff and messing up a new release with incorrect info does not do them any good if they want fans to buy this release, have this on TFC set so have a chance to skip this one........but of course for those who want this go for it if the latter part of '77 is your cup of tea.
Jesse Garon Presley (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 16, 2011report abuse
This is not really a new soundboard,this concert was previously released on the now famous " hard to get" Final Curtain boxset on CD 5 to be exact, so therefore i won't buy it again,because i allready have the concert , but for those who don't have the box? this is their chance to obtain this concert.
benny scott (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 16, 2011report abuse
Should indeed have been WI and not MI (Michigan). It's a soundboard, so let's hope it sounds good. Have nothing against a new label as long as the quality is ok. Always El.
