High Spirits In Vegas And Getting Down To Business

High Spirits in Las Vegas" and "Getting Down to Business" are two new import releases on the Union Records label. Although the cover indicates that both shows are "soundboard recordings" we doubt they are. The original tape is a soundboard recording probably, but these shows seem to come from a third or fourth generation tape. Nevertheless, the sound quality is way above average. Both shows were taped during Elvis' August/September 1973 engagement in Las Vegas, and their release coincides with the publication of the book "Caught in a Trap" that focuses on the very same concerts. It's obvious that Elvis's voice is in great shape here, with "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "What Now My Love" as undisputable highlights. Also, Elvis throws in a few rather unusual songs, such as "Trouble", "My Boy" (he didn't cut the studio version until December of that year) and "Release Me". Too bad the sound engineer decided to cut two songs of the August 30th show in half. We received information these CD's might be CDR's we're trying to find out right now.
