(P)Review Follow That Dream, Volume 5?

The next release on BMG's Collectorslabel (after The Jungle Room Sessions) will probably the show in Lake Tahoe, dated May 13 1973. This show was released before as an audience recording on the bootleg "Elvis Presley Live in Lake Tahoe". Elvis gave possibly the best show of the engagement at 3 AM on May 13. This was an extra concert in connection with Mothers' Day, from which Elvis' fee was donated to the Barton Memorial Hospital in Lake Tahoe, which needed money for medical equipment. The Mothers' Day concert showed Elvis in good form and, just like during the rest of the concerts, he talked little but sang better. The performance of "I'll Remember You" was quite a fun version - which the audience thoroughly appreciated. "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is amongst the definite highlights of the season, and is, as always, performed beautifully with - not unusually - the last verse sung twice. Elvis ends this extra concert in a special way. Straight from "It's Over" he veritably dives into "Release Me". He shouts out the words for the first verse.. "release me and let me love again....". Then follows "Faded Love" and the closing song - "Can't Help Falling in Love". Previous review is taken from one of the best Elvis-books ever, Stein Erik Skar's The Concert Years. We really wonder if BMG will release the show completely. Without censorship, because Elvis uses some language that's wasn't allowed before on Elvis releases, e.g. changing the lyrics in "I'll Remember You" from "I'm so lonely.." into "I'm so horny..."
