Set for release on May 13 (Exactly 30 years after this actual event) on the Triangle label comes Elvis' special 3 am show as recorded on Mother's Day, May 13, 1973 at the High Sierra Theatre in Del Webb's Sahara Hotel, Stateline, Nevada. This release is a factory made CDR.
Although it's an audience recording, the sound is good and far above average. Help Me Make It Through The Night, Steamroller Blues, Bridge Over Troubled Water (with reprise), My Way and a very rare version of Faded Love are among the highlights of this show. Elvis is not very talkative but it seems he is in a pretty good mood and delivers a very good show. Ernst Jorgensen has announced that this show will be released on the Follow That Dream label too, but then as a soundboard. On the first promo CD for the Elvis Today magazine, we could already find "Faded Love" from this show.
