Hope The Sound quality is good. some rarities here, steamroller blues, one night, and i love you so and it's now or never should be nice to listen. don't know what to make of this. should wait and see.
Although someone disliked the cover in the first post (your are right: photograph shouldn't be part of the Elvis types) it matches at least colourwise with the season. October is quite orange according to the foilage 'round that time. Never been to Minnesota, but I guess it looks exactly like that up there, maybe even white with unexpected snow. Tracklistwise I like the bonustrack of Blue Christmas. It was always intresting to me, how this song evolved since the '68 comeback: From a bluesy song to a country styled rendition by 1977.
I'm a big fan of soundboards but even I am getting a little bored with the 1976 shows. Don't get me wrong I'm looking forward to this but couldn't we break up the 76 releases with a few more from the earlier years in between?
If it was his concert in Minneapolis (Bloomington) November 5, 1971, I'd be very interested (I was there). But this? No.
I'm very happy about this release. I have a special place in my heart for this show. My birthday is Oct 17, 1980 (not 1976.. sniff) so I can't wait. I finally tracked down a concert ticket from the show so this makes me one happy Elvis fan.... PS... Happy Birthday EP.
I couldn't be more thrilled with this release! I've prayed for this release!! I was at this show!!!
I was only 8, but I remember leaving there thinking that was the coolest thing I've ever seen. My older brother got within almost touching distance when Elvis entered the building. I remember the flashbulbs going off like crazy and the screams of the audience. I remember talking with my brother right after the show on how Elvis looked good and so cool. I can't wait for this FTD release! God bless you Ernst and Roger!!
EJ, if you're reading these postsre "MM" i'd be seriously reconsidering changing the title to something alittle more catchy like "Minneapolis Express" or "One Night of Rhythm & Blues" - "MM" just doesn't do a concert release justice even by FTD standards.
Thank you for sharing your sentiments as one being there. That sentiment adds to my enjoyment of listening to this concert. Shows were primarily for those present. A live experience cannot be captured by any sound-only recording. Love to add this cd to my collection.
JerryNodak - My parents were at the show in '71 as well! I have been looking for that show without any luck (soundboard or audience). According to Tunzi, the show exists as a soundboard so hopefully it will surface one day!
The cover looks like a piece of .... Apart from this,i'm glad that a completely new soundboard will be available soon.
what use FTD a cheap designer ?. But ok the show is good. But there are better shows
There are many talented fans who would happily design FTD covers for free! (If FTD would let them to do this.) Instead of this they pay who knows how much money to an idiot who designs average and below average covers. Also,they regularly use a deaf sound engineer (called Lene Reidel). A blind designer and a deaf sound engineer won't make FTD any better. But that's just my opinion.
I can see why this would appeal to certain fans (those that were at the concert or that had loved ones that were there). I cannot understand why anyone else would buy this. It's just the same old same old. With a terrible cover to boot. Anyway Happy Birthday in Heaven Elvis. I'm sure you're getting a kick out of what's going on.
Zoltan84 your right of course,but Ftd is now all about profit,they are loosing supportmalthough some wont admit it,it is indeed happening!
theoldscudder it is no wonder he was bored,but why not make a change,or at least try to sing correct versions of your classics,such talent,that was thrown away,sad really!
I think you're all missing the point with the covers... the 70s were a wasteland designwise but they're supposed to look in keeping with the time and they certainly achieve that - to put a new 2010 look on a 1976 concert would seem very strange... especially when combined with Elvis hair and outfits.
That's not problem that they created a 70's lookalike cover. The problem is that it doesn't look good.
I bet Elvis in the morning didn't look good either... ;)
Unreleased in any form before...it fills a gap..Ernst..BRAVO !!
Wow! Track listing is so different to 'New Haven '76'...
