The Creeping Crud Express

Right after the release of the very controversial Houston, August 28th, 1976 show (‚HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM…‘), Audionics is back with another remarkable release with more previously unreleased soundboard material. This time, Audionics presents Elvis in solid form during his memorable May/June ’75 tour.

Elvis often wore different Phoenix jumpsuits in May/June ’75, and in a way that’s entirely appropriate. Compared with the fall of ’74, he looked fresh and rejuvenated, sounded great, and seemed genuinly happy about being on the road again. He was like a phoenix rising from its ashes.

Fortunately, the June ’75 tour is well-documented, and most of the shows have been released on soundboard. In this deluxe package, Audionics presents for the first time the unreleased afternoon show in Shreveport, Louisiana on June 7th, 1975 – a real killer show. Even though most of the shows on this tour have a similar setlist, it’s always a treat to hear a new show from this remarkable tour and to hear unique moments - like different dialogue, fun interplay with the audience and of course small variations in the way he performs the songs or especially good versions. The audio quality of this soundboard is topnotch.

The Dallas show has been out before, first by RCA in 1980, and then more complete on import as ‘Dallas Seventyfive Uncensored’ a couple of years ago. We were able to obtain a superior and even more complete tape source, and it’s a joy to hear this fantastic show in excellent sound. Presented in a deluxe double digipak with rare photos (some are published in color for the first time here) and relevant liner notes, this is another winner that every die-hard fan must own.

Until now I never realized that the Dallas show was that complete on "Dallas 75". I always thought it was only a patchwork from the parts that were available on "Elvis Aron Presley but it wasn't. When this"Creeping Crud import is out there's only the tour-opening show from Huntsville missing from that tour. All others are then available as soundboards.

Hope this means that there are more new soundboards on the way, maybe Aswille 75 !!

The Dallas show as always been a favourite of mine so this is an added bonus to the new soundboard on the following night, i also quite like the cover even though the title is not one of the best however this is elvis referring to the girls he is kissing in the audience that there will catch the creeping crud :-) my copy is on order and with all Audionics releases this will be a winner !!

Don't no one buy this unless they change the title, a 5 year could come up with a better title

There's nothing like spoiling a good release that has an excellent cover by giving it a ludicrous title. I know he refers to "the creeping crud" but the title makes no sense.

I'll be getting this for sure it's Elvis at his best Humor in the A/S show and unlike the previous Audience recorded Bootleg you can hear this show properly~!

Great news from a super tour !! For me both CDs are interesting because I don't have either of them.

Good Lord ! Who comes up with these titles ? This almost sounds like a joke - and a bad one.
