So happy to see another concert with these songs. ;-) I was dying to hear the 2-22-73-version. How many concerts did he give in the seventies? So when will it ever end?

I don't know what is the problem, guys: if you don't like these releases, it's so easy: just skip them... But I can't read your strange words about UNRELEASED shows. Maybe you like SONY compilations CD's with the same masters???

The sad thing is, the title says it all, Back In The Desert. After Aloha, he should have been rejuvinated and anyplace but back in that place. It surely depressed him if you read the accounts of those who knew him. 1973 was the beginning of the end in many ways.

Dgirl You got to buy this! If not you will be missing a 1:08 minute version of Blue Suede (Elvis had dropped the shoes at this point) & also a 1:26 minute version of Hound (he also was dropping off the dog). Do you really want to miss out on the wonderful 12 pg. booklet.

In the 70's I stopped buying albums immediately after Aloha becaues I didn't like the live concert 'samey' songlists. I still hold the same view today. I have bought many more albums on CD over the last 10-12 years (a fool and his money are soon parted I think the expression goes) and yep some of those are audience recordings and I promise you I'll not buy anymore audience stuff. I wouldn't mind the booklet though, screw the CD. As the oldscud pointed out he couldnt even be bothered to complete the lines of some of his classics, just need the jailhouse rock version of forgetting the lines completely to make it complete. I think this may have been released before under 'The Concert Years, vol 60 1969-77' if anyone has it and wants to express an opinion about the sound quality.

If they can, then why can't FTD codme up with a similar top quality (CD + super great booklet with lots of coloured shots) ? I definitely will buy this one in the meantime.

Of course FTD can release cd's with wonderful booklets. But that would make them expensive. Remember, at FTD they pay royalties when due.

Ftds are expensive already,and a nice booklet should have been included in every release,after all its a collectors label.
