Midnight Resurrection At The International

August 25th 1969 midnight show, International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV.

This is a typically excellent 1969 set. Among the highlights are Jailhouse Rock, Mystery Train and All Shook Up. Of course, contemporary material is included – strong covers of Words, Yesterday and I Can’t Stop Loving You, plus terrific renditions of Elvis’ recent recordings, In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds. It’s Elvis in 1969, so don’t expect even a single average performance!

This recording is taken from an early generation copy of the original tape. The sound quality is very good for a 42 year-old audience recording. The CD booklet contains a collection of August 1969 photos and liner notes.

I probably would've bought this back in the day (when bootlegs really mattered and were our only source of anything 'rare'). But what's the point now? We have several '69 shows in great quality already (FTD and Sony), so why go for another one in inferior audience recorded sound? This is like buying a badly photocopied version of yesterday's newspaper.

The comment about the sound quality was to put the grading into context and so that the hard of thinking will not expect it to be equal to releases like "Elvis In Person".

I imagine this concert will eventually gain an official released from the RCA tapes,. Seven tracks from this show were used on the original "Elvis In Person" album and "In The Ghetto" twas released on the "Writing For The King" set, so we already own a great deal of the material. Contrary to some others who are bored with material from this era, I look forward to the release of the rest of it, in complete form rather than just individual tracks being released. People should not speak for everybody when they say "enough".

I don't want anything starting with Las Vegas, 1969 and 1970. E.N.O.U.G.H. !!!

If FTD releases a 1969 show everybody moans "O no, not again. They are all the same". If an audience recording pops up everybody is excited. What a crazy site here.

Worthwhile to collect if you want the complete show in 'listenable 'audience recorded' sound' but i wonder how many years before Sony/FTD decide to give us the complete show in Marvelous Vic Anesi mastered Quality?
