Next-Stop Fayetteville

Graceland records will release a set with 3 audience recordings from August 1976. Here is their press-release: 

NEXT – STOP FAYETTEVILLE

Fayetteville, NC, Cumberland County Memorial, August 3rd, 4th and 5th, 1976 shows

We all have said it once or twice, “You should have been there, it was amazing, and you should have heard it. Wow! Guess what… You can, really? YES!

Graceland Records label managed once again a rare momentum. This time it’s not just one show, but 3 complete and previously unreleased concerts. 
They were not available in any form – until now!

Rumours lingered about only a few songs he sang on the 3th of August 1976, but nobody heard it since that day. NOTHING was known about these 3 concerts, no recorded evidence, no track listings available, too.  Just rumours.

These 3 concerts are definitively rare and also very good, for the hot summer of 1976!

HIGHLIGHTS:  ALL 3 CONCERTS!

On August 3rd, Elvis is in good mood and the audience really joins in. Elvis loves it and interacts tremendously! Wow! Best moments of this show: America The Beautiful (with reprised last part), Love Letters, Hawaiian Wedding Song and very rare (unusual for summer of 1976) performance of An American Trilogy!

On 4th, Elvis was looking forward to perform again and he gave a hell of show, playing off the roof.  Great moments: And I Love You So, America The Beautiful (with reprised last part) and two full performances of Hurt.

The August 5th was closing show of whole tour and last ever Elvis show in Fayetteville. Elvis makes sure the people from Fayetteville will remember that he was there, giving another fantastic performance. Best songs: America The Beautiful (with reprised ending), Jailhouse Rock, Love Letters and Hurt (with reprised last part).

Speaking about somewhat up & down shows of summer '76, this is certainly Elvis at his best. Those 3 shows are definitely „up” and far from being „down”

These rare audience recordings came from a non fan, who recorded it since he believed it was historical moment. At Graceland Records we are very grateful since these are almost beyond par the best concerts of the 1976 Bicentennial tour, I very good sound !

This special summer set is presented in 3CD-digipack, in slipcase, with great 44-page booklet filled with many rare photos (some are presented for the very first time) of Elvis on stage in Fayetteville. 

You can't go wrong with this set. 
If you know the Graceland Records releases, you’ll will love this!

As a diehard elvis cd collector, you need this release, believe me. There are not much opportunities nowadays to buy such releases as this!
You Dont Know Me (profilecontact) wrote on Sep 2, 2015report abuse
Jaques... would you buy it if it was called Fayetteville Fever, or Farenheight or Centigrade in Fayetteville or maybe Fat,Flu and Feisty in Fayeteville! haha! the shows speak for themselves and are all unreleased in any form until this

The Ciscokind of views are excellent and always base myself on them for buying my CDs. But in relation Next Stop i will not buy, despite the artwork to be excellent

I agree with Thorsten. We have better shows like Memphis (07/05/76) & new year (31/12/76)

Thanks, but no thanks. I am "happy" with the shows of Summer '76 which I already have. It's Elvis but it's Elvis at a low point. I don't need no more shows of this sad period of his career. However, thanks Ciscoking for your input as always.
You Dont Know Me (profilecontact) wrote on Aug 31, 2015report abuse
What Ciscoking wrote is correct and a must have for a true collector of 'live shows'.

At least it is Elvis as is. Not at his best (to say it mildly), but thankfully Elvis only with the people *he* chose!

Thanks CIscoKing. I also ordered mine and am in eager anticipation,

I may add that this is no quick buck release..its a beautiful 3 disc digipack with booklet etc..a real eyecatcher for the collection. I am really a bit nervous..;-)

In spite of the fact that these 3 unreleased shows are from the (weak) summer of 1976, I'm very thrilled with this release!
I'm an elvis fan for 38 years now, but these moments are very rare in all those collecting years....

Unfortunately and sadly, many of us don't have a local dealer for this release..., :+(
Ciscoking (profilecontact) wrote on Aug 29, 2015report abuse
Next stop..your local dealer to purchase this 3 cd set as soon as possible before it is sold out !!! 3 shows never heard before in any form in one set ! Sound is okay..I heard a sample..!! For collectors of such stuff a must-have !
