Great release! I hope the sound is worthwhile. Elvis was great in 1973! Looking forward to this one. By the way: GREAT cover!

I was told that it includes the only and rare "Polk Salad Annie" for 1973.But a sound sample is needed I think because it's an audience recording and I don't want to spend a lot of money for that. :/

Its a really great cover, but after all this is just a poor audience recording. No matter how many sources they have and how much they did with the sound it's for the die-hard fan. I hardly ever listen to soundboards, only exceptions is Dinner Date with Elvis and Storm over Portland, both from 1970..

"Elvis was great in 1973"? Don't you mean he was bored out of his skull doing the same songs night after night in Vegas? What's great about that? No originality, no forward-thinking, just endless versions of 'You Gave Me A Mountain' and the rest. No wonder he started shooting out TVs.

Elvis was bored with his career by 1973, especially after Aloha. I saw Elvis in 3 different years, 1972, 73 & 75. The 1973 show I cant even remember it was so auto pilot driven. Oh yeah I do remember a silly rock medley involving Your Mama Cant Dance, a rock classic if ever there was one. A wasted year both on wax and in concert. Best thing about this release is the cover.

Is this an Elvis fans forum or what? I think so called 'fans' who claim that Elvis was bored bla bla from 1973 on, better listen to John Denver or Engelbert Humperdinck and forget all about Elvis. Elvis did GREAT tour concerts in 73 and 74, 75. Ever heard of An afternoon in Nashville, Guarenteed to blow your mind or a Sold out in dixie? Sleep tight guys!

And dream on Ronaldv. Your blind devotion will leave you one day and you'll awaken to realize that Elvis's drive and creativity had dried up by 1973. No longer was he an innovator - just a Vegas act singing the same songs night after night. His 'legend' stemmed from his groundbreaking early recordings and not from the Vegas years (unless you are a lover of belts and gaudy jumpsuits from the decade that taste passed by).

At one time checking this site was something to look forward to. It was interesting & entertaining to read the reviews & the comments/opinions of those on this site. This is no longer true. It has become a tedious & tiresome endeavor since the majority of the comments are from the same negative & often nasty members. It is one thing to constantly pan a review but not at the expense of others. If the same members do not like a review, they are certainly entitled to their opinons. They ought to extend that some courtesy to others. Supposedly there are over 6000 members of this site, but I notice only the same comments over & over referring to a person's taste in a song as "crap" and calling other members "stupid". It is not only juvenile & inconsiderate, it is probably why we never hear from any new members. Who wants to be treated like that. I hope we get some new fresh members willing to express their opinions, pro or con, with a new approach - a respectful manner. Otherwise, I am sure I am not only one tired of wasting their time.
