Wild Tiger In Concert

April 07, 2012 | Music

The MxF label will release soon the first volume of “Wild Tiger in Concert" featuring the Long Beach, November 14, 1972 Show.
The November Tour represent the third tour of a busy year, Elvis in 1972 is still a rocking Elvis but without any doubt it is the last year with Elvis is still on the top of his shape. For this reason his performance is superb, in spite some fatigue and maybe some worries about the imminent Hawaii TV satellite Show, Elvis is very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm and he sings with power the classic repertoire of the 1972 including the incredible “new rocker single” “Burning Love”. On stage you see an impressive figure in his Aztec star blue jumpsuit and golden cape, the rocker attitude still intact, his voice is great, the atmosphere enormous, the demand terrific, 28.000 lucky people attended at the two shows of Long Beach.

The show was previously released in a substandard quality using an unknown generation copy of the tape released by the Tiger label way back in 1991. Here we present the show directly from a first generation copy of a privately-recorded 60-minute cassette. The sound was painstakingly restored for your listening pleasure. The improvement is incredible, the sound quality here is incredible good, considering it was taped from the audience. Elvis’ voice is loud and clear, the band sounds very powerful in very good balanced mix with some great James Burton’ guitar solos, the audience is never too intrusive giving instead the real feeling of the concert.

Like its predecessors, this new release will be presented in a beautiful four panel digipack with a collection of photos taken during the actual show. As bonus the first 500 copies will come with a poster 24x12 cm. The recording excellent quality and the superb show give to Wild Tiger in Concert the status of UNIQUE. Don’t miss it!!!!

... In reality, it gave us a far better sound, same tape source for sure, but one from firsts hand copies, if not original one. Enjoy it beginners and old fans. TCB

I rarely buy ARs, but in this case I may make an exception. The promises the importer lay out sound intriguing.

This may be one of the audience recordings that may be interesting to buy. Look forward to info from CiscoKing on this concert and the sound quality!

In no case a bad show..knowing MxF I can assume they took the old bootleg which is on the market for years now (Long Beach, California by Tiger 1991) and made a re-release out of it.. if you have the original there is no need for this re-release cause it already sounds quite well....For newbies I`d say..not uninteresting.

Thanks CiscoKing! Not a bad show... does this reconcile with MxF claim that Elvis his performance is superb or a gentle way of indicating that MxF is somewhat exaggerating? How about the performance of How great thou art?

The show is good...but it isn`t a milestone..the April 1972 shows were more powerful and vibrant..IMO..but we are still talking of good entertainment. I like How Great Thou Art from 1975 better..
