Out Now - Love Me Tonight

Just released is the CD "Love me Tonight" on the "SR" label featuring an unreleased show from Las Vegas February 13, 1971 Midnight Show. After a long research we finally located a good tape that gives us the possibility to produce another show from Elvis fourth season. As everybody knows SR concentrates its work on Elvis early 70's live period, trying to produce unreleased shows with Elvis at the top of his possibilities. In this new release, we are proud to present the complete show from February 13th, midnight performance of the fourth Elvis’ historical Vegas season.

The midnight show from February 13th, as presented on this CD, .. no surprises in the tracklist, but the show is extremely solid and good, the sound is good and powerful using a straight copy of the original source tape. Elvis' performance on these early season nights is superb as he is still performing to the best of his ability. Although he delivers short shows they are delivered in a very intense, crisp and fresh manner that cannot be denied. Elvis was on stage to have fun and demonstrated this during the older, classic numbers, but songs such as 'Polk Salad Annie', 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling' and 'Sweet Caroline' never sounded better. The season will be remembered for the beautiful new closing number ‘The Impossible Dream’ which Elvis sang with power and feeling giving us proof that Elvis continued to grow as a performer.

This recording came from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early season. We have in our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise and trying to achieve a more clear sound and of Elvis, keeping his vocal power up in the central mix and at the same time trying to give a great definition to the background music. The Tape was unfortunately incomplete, Suspicious Minds last only four minutes for a cut in the middle.

As usually from this label, this new CD will come in a deluxe digipack, containing a collection of live photographs from the season and informative liner notes .

yes..SR..is known for just copy and paste from cdr to cd.. but this show IS good...so at least for die-hard collectors like me a must-have and debut on silver disc anyway...nothing for sound experts of course..

Sadly, I'm at the bottom of my possibilities with this one. Also, that should be 'an Unreleased Midnight show', not 'a Unreleased midnight Show'

Nice release. Especially when you like coughing and sneezing in tape..
