It hardly needs introduction; the set list is a well-balanced mix with an impressive show!
A strong mix of his hits and fills the show with his latest recordings and topping it of with par excellence covers of very popular recent top ten charts hits like “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me, Sweet Caroline, You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling, Polk Salad, Something, Snowbird”.
Even the closing of the show had a drastic change.
Making the performances of January /February 1971 by far the most energizing starts of a Vegas Season.
The extra’s are a part of the Snowbird studio session with the unreleased undubbed Master take 6 & a rare take of the vocal harmony overdub by Elvis.
As extra bonus we included a seven-minute telephone conversation, privately taped in March/April 1971.
