Let It Be Me

November 13, 2006 | Music
The Audiophile Records label will release their second CD title called "Let It Be Me" late November. This release will contain previously unreleased - and according to the press release completely unknown - audience recording of Elvis Presley's Midnight Show in Las Vegas, February 21, 1970, taken directly from the original master tape. The sound has been digitally restored to achieve the best possible quality, regarding the off-line source.

The songs "Kentucky Rain" and "Let It Be Me" are incomplete from the main show. However, bonus tracks were taken from another unreleased audience recording during the February 20th Dinner Show, that contain the complete versions of "Kentucky Rain" and "Let It Be Me". The sound quality is very good for an "audience recorded standard", including the bonus tracks. This CD will come with a full color 8-page booklet containing sleeve notes, press reviews, several rare photos taken by an Elvis fan that recorded several shows during this Las Vegas engagement. Included is an essay on the fan's experience seeing Elvis.

They put "Audiophile" in their label's name, and they release audience recordings?And "master tapes" applies to these cassettes stuff?
