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.
