Hey look it has cool cover art and liner notes,whats that collectors label called again?

Now, Mature... I know FTD has come up with some pretty uninspired covers, but ALL of them look more professional than At The Forum! Don't knock FTD just for the sake of it.

Ok lets say your right and this cover isnt as good as some of ftd covers,there sure are plenty of other imports that do a much better job on artwork,not too mention that ftd offer NO liner notes at all,ive lost alot of the interest in ftd,just my oppion,sure if they release something that interests me then ill get it but the lack of effort shows sometimes,either all or nothing with that label,not really knocking them,i think its deserved,have there been some great releases? yes of course but putting those great releases in a cheap digi pack with no info or pics is a bit cheap looking,but the prices arent now are they?as for this release, ill skip,by the way i like the artwork!

This cover looks 10 times better than some of the FTD covers like Too Much Monkey Business, 6363 Sunset, Memphis Sessions, Spring Tours 77, Dragonheart,Takin´ Tahoe Tonight!, Polk Salad Annie, Elvis On Tour - The Rehearsals etc. Most likely this CD was made by a fan and not only for the money!

Very brave from Graceland Records to create a "jumpsuitless" cover. Reminds me of the Memphis'74 cover;)

Love the artwork !, Daring a non Elvis photo cover. Wondering why mr. Walker complains. Its looks professional to me. I read that it is a 20 page booklet with more than 35 afternoon photo's. sound is been fixed pretty good, when I listened to the sample at another site. This baby will get a place in my collection. Wish other labels would putt this kind of work into a release. There are only a very few. Very fine quality for audience release thumbs up !

I wouldn't mind having this in my collection.

This release is by far better than the old Tiger label disc. We have upgraded sound and modern layout with booklet and informative liner notes. It`s a good companion to the FTD of the other show. You Can Have Her sounds fantastic. Compared to the many crappy audience recordings we had these weeks this release stands out. highly recommendable..

But isnt it rather pathetic that you need to buy a import in order to get the better sounding version of you can have her,when ftd is suppose to be the collectors label! There i go complaining again(doh)

One of the very best EVER covers. It puts a lot of miserable FTD resease covers of shows and concerts away and it goes to show the bad taste of the BMG strategic Elvis Mrktg Dept (not listening to Elvis fans nor marketing experts - as we have noticed so many years now) Let the bootleggers show them what good taste can do and also the right price for such a great product. Many fans don't have or don't want to spend one hundred (US$100) for BMG releases (LA and TX concerts plus a little book with b/w photos...cheap and crappy looking). We deserve more and better quality man ! Anyone listening ?
