Here is the press release for the upcoming Straight Arrow release "High Sierra Fever" with an unreleased audience recording of Elvis' May 7, 1973 midnight show from Lake Tahoe.
The forthcoming release from the "Straight Arrow" label is titled "High Sierra Fever" (SA 2007-7-02), and will feature the Lake Tahoe, May 7th, 1973 Midnight show as taken from an excellent quality audience recorded tape.
Compared to the January/February 1973 Las Vegas shows, Elvis was in better voice in Lake Tahoe, and his shows were more engaged and playful again.
This concert includes classy performances of "Steamroller Blues", "You Gave Me A Mountain", "I'm Leavin' ", "What Now My Love", "I'll Remember You", "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "A Big Hunk O'Love".
As a bonus, an excerpt of "Surrender" and the seldom performed "It's Over", recorded during the Midnight Show the previous day were added. Both mastertapes were recorded by the same person, and they are of equal sound-quality.
This recording comes from a 1st generation copy of the original tape. As you’ve come to expect from us, the sound was restored in a renowned studio to achieve the best possible results. And it's not necessary to emphasize another Straight Arrow label tradition – this new CD will come in a deluxe package with a 16-page booklet, containing a collection of live- and candid photographs from April, May and June 1973, rare Lake Tahoe memorabilia, informative liner notes as well as details about Elvis' Lake Tahoe 1973 season. This CD is set for release in late September. Don't miss your opportunity to spend an unforgettable hour with The King in High Sierra!
