Vegas Variety Volume 7

To be released November 7, 2011: Rainbow Records proudly presents Volume 7 of their series “Vegas Variety”, featuring the complete performance of December 4, 1975 Dinner Show at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Nevada. Elvis did only one show at this date.

Many fans call this Vegas engagement one of his strongest ever and the recording we hear on “Vegas Variety Volume 7” proves them to be right. It was 36 years ago and Elvis was (again) sold out for every single performance in Vegas. Until today every recording from this engagement that was released on cd showed an artist in great mood, giving a lot for the money that people spent to attend one of Elvis´ by now legendary concerts at the Hilton showroom.
Rainbow Records is again able to deliver a very fine show in really nice sound, recorded by some fans tape recorder which has been secretly brought with by a fan to “record” the King. As usual a very high quality booklet comes with this release. It has a lot of pictures and information regarding the magic of Elvis and Las Vegas back in December of 1975 on its 20 pages.

According to back cover of the CDr "The Concert Years Vol. 62", he does introduce a certain "Julie Lamar". A joke at the expense of Lamar or of Julie? Or "Proofreading for the King" again?

Scudder - your post regarding Miss Newmar or Heddy's twin has got to be the funniest damn thing I've read in ages. I guess you didn't find Halle Berry sexy, huh ? Seriously, I don't know about the sound on this one, but Elvis was consistently excellent during this season in Vegas. One can only hope the sound lives up to the performance - especially on songs Bridge or Just Pretend.

Or it could be Lamar Fike's sister or wife using his first name as her last name!

I'm so excited about this release with the highlight being Elvis introducing Julie Newmar (The sexiest Cat Women). Wait! Just reread who is Julie Lamar? Heady's younger sister? Will not be buying after all.
