By popular demand! For those who missed Fort Baxter's 1997 Goodbye Memphis 2?D, Audionics / Fort Baxter will release in a limited edition the 2CD-set titled The Final Homecoming (Audionics 2009-05-2 / Fort Baxter CS-1005). This release will contain the famous July 5th, 1976 Tour finale as recorded live from the mixing desk in Mid-South Coliseum, Memphis, Tennessee.
From the press-release:
To achieve the best possible sound quality, Audionics / Fort Baxter worked with 1st generation DAT copies of the original soundboard tapes, as originally used for the 1997 release. The sound was restored in a renowned studio and is a significant improvement over the original release.
As usual, this new release will come in a beautifully designed packaging with a 16-page booklet, containing a selection of live photographs from the July 5th, 1976 Memphis concert as well as informative liner notes. This 2CD is set for release in September. Don't miss your opportunity to get the ultimate release of that legendary final Memphis show! One of the show highlights is a sensational version of That's All Right, Mama. He sings it with gusto, saying: "they said he can't do that stuff anymore, by God just watch me!". He also sings a few lines of Jambalaya as well as a rare-for-the-period One Night.
The next Audionics release will contain an unreleased soundboard recording. More details soon.
