Red-Hot In Richmond

The next Madison label release will be "Red-Hot In Richmond - Standing Room Only Tapes, Vol. 2."

This fiery performance, captured in Richmond, Virginia by a battery of MGM documentary cameras on Monday, April 10, 1972, has been issued once before -- but this time it's far more complete, and in great sound quality. For the very first time, hear the show mixed down from MGM's multi-track tapes into superb stereo according to the press-release:
From the press-release:

Snippets of this evening made the final cut of MGM's "Elvis On Tour," although with hindsight, it seems this was a major mistake. Ripping tracks like "Proud Mary," "It's Over," "Hound Dog," "For The Good Times" "Polk Salad Annie" and "An American Trilogy" were top shelf. And Elvis was in very, very good humour the entire night -- oh, yes, you're in for a real treat.

Tracklisting :

01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra 1:17 02. C.C. Rider 2:59 03. Proud Mary 2:43 04. Never Been To Spain 3:36 05. You Gave Me A Mountain 3:13 06. Until It's Time For You To Go 2:31 07.

An On Tour show should have already been released by Ftd no excuses,how long do they stick to the were waiting on mgm reason,it surely would sell very well,if people lay therem oney down for america,i mean come on now!

I really write to encourage Ernst and the FTD team. As a business i want them to succeed by giving fans what they want. I would never buy a bootleg if I didn't have to. I have every FTD release - love 'em all. But i find it frustrating that that I'm still waiting for certain concerts and sessions to be given the treatment. I'm waiting to get all the concerts from the EOT tour and I don't understand why the TTWII concerts are still unreleased. Of course a balance has to be made and other eras of Elvis' life have to be given attention but why must the bootleggers get there first? and was the glitch on 'where no one stands alone' ever rectified?

I've read the criticisms of my criticism, and I thought to myself "Okay, maybe comparing FTD to an import label is unfair? All those royalties and such." Instead, I'll compare FTD to FTD. The Classic Series release of "That's The Way It Is" absolutely outstanding while "America" is amongst the worst FTD's thus far. Same royalties paid. TTWII has two CD's, a large album format, and an excellent booklet packed with photos, all for the same exact price as the sub-standard "America" CD. Can't FTD put just as much effort into a soundboard? Is that too much to ask? Maybe Ernst can use the middle finger he's sticking up to me to scratch his head and think about it.

well, to some of you, maybe this will be quite a strange question: With Greensboro in mind, why in all the world does one need another show from the same period after all? I was a die hard fan 30years ago, but today I just enjoy the development releasewise, as there aren't too many unknown songs to be excpected to come out...

I always welcome these kind of releases and especially the Madison ones. But It starts getting annoying reading the FTD critics with every acceptable/good bootleg release. If I was Ernst Jorgensen I'd put up my middle finger to the complainers here and put the FTD project to a stop. I have all FTD's here (as most you have probably) and I enjoy them all; one more than the other (with America being one of the worst) but I thank Ernst and his mates for every single release. Material the bootleggers CAN'T provide us with anymore. But for some people it's never enough. And by the way: I don't really like the Elvis On Tour shows. Crap compared to the TTWII shows 2 years earlier. And Elvis didn't have the awesome TTWII look anymore. So: let's all enjoy every single good release (being bootleg or FTD) but stop putting the FTD release down here.

It is funny that I do enjoy the outings from the bootleggers most of the time more than the outings of FTD (Except multi-track recordings that is). Strange considering the list of soundboards BMG/FTD is supposed to have acces to (see the J.A. Tunzi Sessions Book).

So that we don't forget the realities: FTD has a limited budget, and they do have to worry about royalty payments and other such necessities that labels such as Madison can choose to ignore. So it's quite unfair to compare FTD and Madison (both of which are doing fantastic work, by the way) in this manner.

Well, the royalty payments is only approx. 5 cents a CD, so that is not a big issue.

Fully agree with Scott Hayward and RJ ! Always El.

Right on Scott, comparing FTD to bootleg labels is pretty stupid actually. I welcome both though..

Here's the dilemma the way I see it. I can buy FTD's "America" for around $30. It's a sub-standard show with poor sound, housed in a cheap cardboard digi-pack and without a booklet, liner notes, or other goodies that makes CD's top notch. Or I can buy Madison's "Greensboro Revolution" for around $30 (or any Madison title). I get an excellent show in the best sound available, outstanding artwork, a booklet with useful information, and loads of photos. Hmmm? Which one to buy is really is a no brainer. I simply won't put my money on another FTD soundboard recording until they get their act together. FTD sells the far better produced Classic Series CD's for the same price as the soundboards and they still make a profit. So please, spare me the "reasons" about why FTD does so little with their soundboards. The label is Follow That Dream, not Follow That Nightmare.

elvistruth you must go to the corner now for your ernst remark,your so ungratefu! (kidding)

I agree with "dressingroom". But only in commercial sense of view. For the mass marked a special, high class concert with additional gems, would have been right. That in mind I have always meant that the Essential 70's Box set should have contained ONLY the studio recordings (incl. the few live singles) and there should have been released a volume 2. A 2CD with the 40-50 titles only recorded live during the 70's instead of the "Presley Show" CD on the box. It would be like The Command Performances of the 60's covering the live recordings instead of the movies. For the complete shows the public should discover the ORIGINAL releases!

That said a box or double CD's with essential (bootleg) shows are no problem within the FTD marked. It is not too late for FTD to take the shows back and make them official forever after. It only takes some effort to make them more attractive than the exsisting versions (which is the same strategy as Madison and others are using at the moment). An example: now we have finally been treated with both the opening ang closing of the Las Vegas Jan/Febr. 1970 season. This should have been an official release. But let's say that FTD releases them together with an additional CD of unreleased rehearsals and live-tracks a couple of years from now? It would be a winner, no doubt about it!

elvislives72: the concert box indeed would have been a great idea. But what would you do put on it? The setlists at some point in time did not vary so much anymore. you'd be down to snippets of shows featuring rare performances. one could publish an attracitve whole show and add the other gems he performed in accordance to the featured tour...

I Love the album / CD -cover! - Great Photo and artwork!! RCA take note.. Do some exciting Album covers.. like this one! I for one.. enjoy the Elvis concerts from 1973-1977, just as much as I enjoy the 1969-to 1972 concerts. In 1974 and 1975.. he was doing more new material, on stage and pushing his voice, more than ever, on selected songs.

Look i LOVE everything elvis but even i know the '68-'73 was the time when no -one could touch him. So then why are we not getting concerts from this era? why are the bootleggers giving the fans what they want and not the official label? why are we getting concerts from '76 when we should be getting them from '70 or '72 ? Maybe madison should take over from FTD or am I being ungrateful? I like elvislives suggestion and I found this sudden interest in the EOT era matches fan interest. Why wait for the 40th anniversary, let's have them now FTD before we all lose interest.

I just got Volume 1 and now I'm looking forward to get Volume 2. What great releases!! Thank you, Madison.
Lefty (profilecontact) wrote on Aug 25, 2008report abuse
Carry Me Back To Old Virginia by Vicky records was the original release. It had 16 tracks in comparison to Madison's 23 track outing, so to say it's far more complete certainly rings true. If the rest of the artwork looks as good as the cover, this is going to be another masterpiece! For Elvis concert fans, you can't lose with anything circa 1972. My copy of Volume 1 is still in the mail, and I'm already looking forward to Volume 2.

Absolutely amazing!!! letting FTD one million of times behind this great show, great sound and super cover!!! It's time to thinking buy more and more these products and say bye to Uncle Ernst

I think it's safe to say that the bootleggers have the main RCA label and FTD label beat by a landslide with their releases. Boston 71, Hampton Roads 72 and Birmingham 76 should all have been released by RCA by now instead of the bootleggers putting them out in superb sound quality. Why Ernst never proposed for a live concert years box set as a followup to 'Walk A Mile In My Shoes-Essential 70's Masters' back in the mid 90's is beyond me. Imagine if we would have had these shows as a box set back then or even today. Disc 1-Boston 71; Disc 2-Hampton Roads 72; Disc 3-Richmond 74; Disc 4-Birmingham 76; You couldn't pick out 4 better shows than those to cover Elvis' touring years. What a sad missed opportunity by the label.

When will it be out? Madison promised a couple of weeks after vol. 1... Now FTD has to come up with more shows from this tour before the bootleggers do! Also "Opening Night 1969" should be restored, improved and released officialle before the pirates gets their hands on it. FTD wisely re-releases the Aug. 19, 1974 concert with extra added value in October, making this release official once and for all:-)

Would love to see a dvd of the entire show.We haven't actually got a complete Suspicious Minds on video from Elvis on Tour.I bet it would be pretty wild as Elvis and the TCB band were on top form.
