Not an overly-flattering cover shot.

That puffy sleeved shirt/jumpsuit combo along with the sundial suit is the worst Elvis ever looked. Those photos should be banned from all future releases!

I allready have the first release of this one that was called "Goodbye Memphis" with extra 13 tracks from april 23, 1977 and 2 home recordings from 1974. If you missed the first one make sure you get this one because it's a very good one, a complete very long concert in very good quality !

It`s one of the best shows from 1976. It was the tour end concert and being in Memphis was a challenge for Elvis. He tried hard to please the crows. The result is really a good one. He enjoyed his time on stage. The sound is pristine on the old release and should be even better on the new one knowing Audionics. Recommendable..!

the cover looks great but sorry I really can't care for releases like these anymore. Of course the sound is improved, the booklet is wonderful etc..

Thanks Herman, I'm looking forward to this one. Of course there are always somone that don't like these releases, but to fans like me it's good. i really like to see coments on the different releases and sometimes it seems as if everybody has every release and therefore they don't have to release stuff like this, but to me it's very welcome, so i often don't care to much on those who tear these to pieces. Of course i don't buy them all (who can afford it!!), but some are 'must have' releases to me!

I have to agree that this is not a very good picture - and I also have seen worse. Still, I wouldn't kick him out of bed!
