Good picture. Tiger Man only 19 seconds ? Why take that as a bonus track ?

...wish I had never bothered to get "Blazing Into The Darkness" because after I buy this new FTD, I'll have it twice! I've heard rumors that "Blazing" is dated wrong, but all you have to do is compare tracklists and you can see that this is the same concert.

Hopefully, this is not the same show as "Blazing Into The Darkness." Ernst says it's not. Time will tell.

Yeah, like Hound216 wrote, the track listing appear as almost the same... but only almost.. since Blazing in to the darkness report Proud Mary in place of I Got a Woman. So let us have more trust in Eernst and his job.

Anyway, it's a good tracklist, with, hopefully, good versions since we have a Polk sallad, one night, suspicious and hound dog with resonable times, and performed in a period that Presley still care a little about that musics. TCB.

mmm...a top 10 FTD release... for me anyway!
Ton Bruins wrote on September 14, 2005
Sorry to say Pedro Nuno but Elvis wasn't interested in music at that time. He had some difficult privat problems and was fed up about Las Vegas all ready.

I disagree with the 1972 season at Vegas Elvis being bored...It was at this engagement that he announced his 1973 Aloha fom Hawaii concert...I believe he was gearing up for that event,and he was focused on his music,and not so much his troubled life...

I tell you this. He was all ready bored in 1971 for Las Vegas.
ijustcanhelpbelievin wrote on September 15, 2005
to ton bruins- i don't disagree that vegas was no longer a challenge for him...he conquered it in 69,and 70,but he was peaking again in 72. who wouldn't be bored with the same songs 2 nights for 30 days? the review for blazing into the darkness says he was in fine voice,and great spirits, so i am going on that...

If it is the same show as Blazing, that's fine with me. I have Blazing Into The Darkness, and Elvis is in fine voice and spirits. Elvis jokes around with Charlie Hodge and says at one point, "He can't help it ladies and gentlemen, he's from Alabama." It's pretty funny. Hopefully, the sound on the FTD version will be improved. Blazing is pretty weak for a soundboard recording.

ijustcanhelpbelievin: of course I would be bored too singing the same old songs night after night. But it's Elvis to blame, isn't it ? He could have sung hundreds of other songs to keep him fresh and to have a challenge but he didn't. Too bad. I have many soundboards now and I listen to them 2 or three times and that's it. Again see see rider, i got a woman, love me, teddy bear...boring. The other day I listened to Blazing Into The Darkness and I couldn't listen that one out. No higlights and a very flat sound. He should have stopped playing Vegas earlier. Special shows to me are for example Desert Storm or Closing Night 73 or Birmingham and Dalllas 76. But in August 72 Elvis wasn't at his best.

ton bruins- i agree elvis was the one who choose to sing the same old songs...man,what was he thinking? i still do disagree about the 72 vegas season however,but you have a right to feel the way you do...i will purchase this ftd,but only after reading reviews on it...glad to hear from you ton...

This show is not the same as Blazing Into Darkness. That one had a false date mentioned on the cover, it actually is August 12th Dinner show (compare it to the audience tape available from this date, Elvis is introducing the people from Crown Electric Company). The FTD release is the correct August 11th Dinner Show.
