Labor Day Madness

This time around fans may thrill to two fantastic Nevada summer performances by the King: the Saturday, September 2, 1972 Special 3AM Show and the Sunday, September 3, 1972 Midnight Show. Both were recorded by the same super-fan, and the Sunday tape is previously-unreleased. The set will be housed in a deluxe digipack, with photos taken from the 1972 "Summer Festival."

As usual, the recordings are excellent quality, sourced from first-generation, 1981 cassette copies of the original mono tapes. Sit down, relax, put on a pair of comfortable headphones, and be transported back to a crazy Labor Day weekend at the Hilton, where Elvis was rocking fans and celebrities alike. Elvis looked great and he sang even better!

The show on CD 1 is also complete now. On King Of The Neon Jungle the beginning of Suspicious Minds was missing.
A different tape was used here. Also the show on CD 2 stems from a new and better sounding source.

Is the sound much better than the Summer Festival 1972 CD? Or is it just a re-release with a minor adaptation in accordance with 2012, which a good HiFi installation can manage as well? Anyone?
