With A Humble Heart

Sunday, February 3, 1974 Dinner and Midnight Shows, Las Vegas Hilton

Straight Arrow is continuing its popular collector’s series of two shows from one evening released in a single package. This time the producers have chosen two excellent performances from Sunday, February 3rd 1974 at the Las Vegas Hilton.

On this collection there are worthy performances of revived songs like Tryin’ To Get To You, Sweet Caroline and a powerful Polk Salad Annie, The December ’73 Stax sessions are represented here with pleasant renditions of Spanish Eyes and Help Me. An American Trilogy is as powerful as ever and Elvis’ passion for Olivia Newton John’s Let Me Be There is evident too, with the ending being reprised in both shows.

As fans have come to expect from us, the tapes are of very good quality, sourced from early generation copies of the original cassettes. The double digipak contains liner notes and is filled with photos from the Montgomery, AL, March 6th, 1974 show, due to a lack of quality images from Presley’s January-February 1974 engagement.

As usual, these recordings have been carefully engineered to be presented in the best possible sound.

Nice release from SA. There isn't much available from this season. Yeah, I found my thrill from FTD. I will give that one a spin tonight, have not listen to it for a very long time.

Both shows were unreleased before on silver disc. What we had as cdr before wasn`t sounding good. especially the DS was horrible sound wise. This means now er have new better sounding tapes. SA won`t disappoint you there I am sure. The shows were solid and Elvis wasn`t very talkative, the music had priority. howevr he still had some fun with the audience of course new songs were added, Help Me, Let Me Be There, Spanish Eyes and Trying To Get To You and Fever were a fantastic highlight among others. perhpas not the best Vegas season but defintitely not the worst. So not only for die-hard collectors

My heart skips skips a beat .... Keep em coming. These SA releases have become a highlight for my. If you collect audience recording .. then it has to be this way.
