I have it cd and cover are great, but the sound is for me below average.A nice show thou. Elvis feels strong in his voice.

The oldscudder is being truthful in his feelings, not negative. This is an awful cover. If you think Elvis looks good here, you are delusional. As for the show, couldn't care less.

I can see I haven't missed much being off of this site. I did miss the site & glad you are back on. Otherwise, I guess some things will never change.

Yes, some things will never change. Like some fans thinking CDs like this are worth having. Awful pictures and a show that's best forgotten about. Listen to his best records instead.

Some people do enjoy audience recordings. So c'mon have some pity on collectors!..
Jesse Garon Presley wrote on August 09, 2009
well i don't need pity from anyone. every fan has his own thing, i do listen to elvis's other albums studio recordings etc. but i guess the negative vibe will remain on this site. best for me just to ignore it. and how i lead my life is for me to decide

This may not be the most interesting concert by Elvis, but I do welcome this release as it's the first bootleg CD ever from this short 1976 tour. Besides FTD's "America" released last year, there are in fact no other CD's from that tour. Live Elvis CD's have both musical and historic value, and sometimes more historic value than pure musical listening pleasure. As a collector of Elvis CD's I'm therefore glad they released this one.

I just listened to this cd, amazing versions of how great thou art and America the beautiful! The bonus songs from Johnson City March 19 1976 are great, stero sound and a steamin' Polk salad annie! You can say what you want, but this label is doing their best to release 'new' concerts. Hans: Live in kansas city from april 21st and live in Denver april 23rd are released too from this short tour, however only on cdr, but worthwile.

Hans Otto - There are two boots i'm aware of from this tour - the DAE release Holding back the years - Mar 21 in Cincinnati - great punchy sound and Running for president the 20th Mar show from Charlotte. A couple of tracks from the Johnson city show of 17 mar also appeared on Luxor's Southbound.
