I am in full agreement with Bennie. Let's stop complaining and at least be grateful we have the opportunity to continue to buy Elvis releases. Nobody makes you buy them but what is not your cup of tea will certainly be someone elses. Please stop crabbing guys, we are usually such a tight "family"!

It,s great news, but why a compilation ? FTD records you should now that fans want to have a complete show, of corse if they had the complete tapes. The sound will that be as good as "one night in vegas". FTD I know you have talked about bringin DVD's out on your label, do you have plans for that ? If you don't, I have. EPE won't give the fans ELVIS IN CONCERT 1977, maybe it's something for FTD records ? Two complete shows, Omaha and Rapid City on DVD in 5.1 or dts sound !! Like M. Luther King said: I HAVE A DREAM !!

Question, did Elvis ever do a complete song of Loving You live, if so I have never heard it, and I have all of the BMG/RCA releases. Thanks, Ron

This sounds like a good release. It continues the Spring Tours idea, which I think was successful. Hopefully there will be a few unusual tracks included. Elvishimselvis, I'm pretty sure Felton didn't record anything after Rapid City on June 21 1977. The CBS cameras were there in Indy on June 26 as they were gathering together extra offstage footage for inclusion in the special. They didn't film the actual show and, as far as I know, Felton didn't record it either. Too bad really, as it has a good version of Bridge Over Troubled Water, which was rare for 77.

To answer some comments from below. RCA did not do any complete shows in Feb. 70. During the show they would turn the machine off if they heard Elvis doing a song they were not interested in recording. I suppose they saved a dollor or two by not recording the entire show. Ernst has already said they want to put this together so it feels like a live show. Lastly these are stereo recordings, not soundboards. This will most likely be the final word on Feb. 70. I am very much looking forward to it as Elvis was great in 1970, and the sound quality will be top notch.

I don't care for the title, but I'm looking forward to this compilation. Elvis sounded great in Feb. '70. I prefer compilations to full concerts because with comps the producers can give you the best of what's available(in their opinion). With full concerts it's what it is. You not only get the great moments, BUT you're stuck with the throwaways as well AND all that talking between songs. I don't find Elvis' "humour" all that interesting(JMHO).

I'm beginning to get sick of all the complains about I want to this or I want that. First of all I think we should be thankfull that we, all Elvis fans, have the oppertunity to get unrealesed material from the artist we loved in the best quality at this time. There's no other record company that provide this service (because that what it is) for the fans than BMG. So we all should be more thankfull. If you don't like it don't buy it (that's a statement too you know) but don't complain. I'm for all am thankfull I can get these great CD's KEEP RELEASING THEM The true fan

I would love to hear a soundboard from INDY 1977. didnt Felton record any of the songs from that show. I have recently seen the lost airport footage shot in Indy and it was pretty cool but it had no sound. Im not burnt out yet on the Feb or Aug 1970 as long as its differnt stuff and not the same songs we alreay have from the TTWII....

I know its Feb 1970 and not August, but I think we have done this year (1970) to death. I agree, a compilation of songs does nothing for me, except wish I was listening to the full concert. Please can we start looking at 1977 for future releases.

I agree. It would be the best if they give us a complete concert from FEB 1970. I have always loved the ON STAGE FEB 70 ALBUM. Elvis voice sounds allittle different from the AUG 70 Shows not worse not better but a little different. RCA was there to record so they must have a complete show or all the parts to make one. It would be so cool to hear a show open with ALL SHOOK UP in the same sound quality as ONE night in Vegas from FTD. Also I would love to see a real life animation concert from the FEB shows and put in the soundboard as the sound.

Is this to be a complilation of professional recordings, soundboard recordings, or a mixture of both?
dismas (profilecontact) wrote on May 10, 2004report abuse
Will the various tracks be edited together to give the audio appearance of one united, seamless concert experience? Or will they simply be strung together with awkward gaps of silence in between each individual performance? Anybody out there have any idea? Thanks in advance.

Sounds like an interesting idea but the frustrating thing about concert compilations is that it really makes me want to hear the complete individual live shows. I hope such compliations won't affect the release of complete shows. that said I hope we'll have the audio recordings of songs from TTWII - plus chat! the omission of the 'hello out there...' sequence on the TTWII SE cd (just after Elvis performs Polk salad Annie) was quite noticable.
