April 08, 2012 | Music

TOUCHDOWN PRODUCTIONS proudly presents a recently discovered complete and much better sounding source from the midnight show an October 13, 1974 including the former unreleased 'Let Me Be There'.

After the mediocre September/ October Tour Elvis is back in decent form and delivered a real good show at the Sahara Hotel.

The soundquality is very good for a show that was recorded from the audience.

Goode / Hawaiian Wedding Song / Let Me Be There / Can't Help Falling In Love

All tracks recorded on October 13, 1974 in Lake Tahoe at the midnight show.

It's still an ugly suit as were most jumpsuits after 1972

I'll be buying this just for the cover. It's Super Duper!

I doubt that the source has been "recently found". A complete tape is circulating in collectors hands few years now. Obviously someone has taken care about this tape now. I don`t think that so many people recorded this very show...lol.. Lake Tahoe was a difficult place for a tape recorder..;-) Anyway,....we had it back in 2007 on "It`s Tahoe Time"..there they took the old source which first surfaced on The Concert Years Vol. 7 cdr with Let Me Be There being missing and Johnny B. Goode being incomplete. A few years ago a new tape surfaced which is complete but bits of the 2001 Theme and the Closing Vamp. The running time of the old source is 48:36...the later source runs for 51:14..I hope they improved the sound..the show itself is not bad...

In the "sun" jumpsuit in 1974. I like the album-CD-photo.

I wish thank Ciscoking for his reviews: very helpful for me.

Gosh, the sundial suit doesn't look half-bad in this photo. Makes me wonder if it was The King's bloated physique in 1977 that gave the sundial suit such a bad rapport with the fans?
