Here is the press release for the new Czech Memory Records release "October Encore In Lake Tahoe". This CD will be available early October 2007.
The forthcoming "Memory Records" label CD release is entitled "October Encore In Lake Tahoe" (CD MR 2055-2). As most die-hard fans know, in Elvis did a short eight-show stint in Tahoe, more or less as an encore, to fulfill his contract after the cancellation of the May 1973 engagement.
There are only two recordings available from this engagement, and the only other known tape is that of the mediocre October 13th midnight show. The tape with the Dinner show, presented on this CD, is of very good sound quality.
Elvis performed in high gear, thrilling the crowd with a funny version of Fever, a poignant "It's Midnight" and the absolute showstopper, a great reading of "Bridge Over Troubled Water". Three songs got the last verse reprised, too.
This is a rare, previously unavailable recording. We were able to obtain the 1st generation copy of the original master tape, as recorded by a member of the audience. The sound was transferred in its original mono format, and all tracks were digitally restored for best possible sound reproduction.
The CD contains 8-page booklet (not so common for MEMORY Records) with many photographs taken during the Lake Tahoe, October 12th dinner & midnight shows and the October 14th dinner show.
We hope you will enjoy this CD as a presentation of an unique October 1974 performance of The Elvis Presley Show which, until this historic release, has not been previously represented in good sound quality!

I just got this CD release and its great sound, great show and (unusually for Memory records)great liner notes- some interesting Elvis dialogue during the show and it made me wish i had actually been at the show watching!
