Wild Tiger At The Hilton Vol. 4

September 15, 2012 | Music

The MxF label will release soon the fourth volume of “Wild Tiger at the Hilton'' featuring the Complete and Unreleased Las Vegas January 28, 1974 Dinner Show. After almost five months of rest, Elvis back to the Hilton in better shape and stronger respect the previous season. The early season show here presented is without doubt better as quality respect the one included in the volume 3. Elvis appears concentrate and his performance is superb. He deliveries a long show, practically 60 minutes, respect the classic 45.00 min. of the rest of the Season.

Elvis was very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sang with power and sensitivity, delivering a solid and heartfelt repertoire like the “new” songs “Spanish Eyes, Help me and Let Me Be There recent hit from Olivia Newton-John” and the classic “Trying to Get To You” sang terrifically. At the same time he introduce the oldie “My Baby Left me” without forget the classic early 70’ songs like You’ve Lost Than Loving Feeling, Polk Salad Annie and Sweet Caroline. As you can see from the track list the number of the classic oldies in the show are significant reduced. This season will be the first with the new agreement , Elvis signed two years of contract performed twice at year, but only two weeks at the time rather than the previous four.

Best song: If You Love Me The Love from Elvis for the song cannot be denied, He able to make the own song.. delivering an original version with a full reprise. The show is unreleased and complete, 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 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 Season. The recording excellent quality and the superb show give to Wild Tiger At The Hilton vol.4 the status of unique.

This label has a bad reputation, so I'll avoid this release. That being said, maybe Cisco should recommend this show for release by FTD. The song set looks pretty good.

After many years, no one is able to explain real details about any pressed cd, without at least a listen to that master to be pressed, neither before release. No one has all sources for all shows like in this case. As always i wait to receive and compare by my own, till that, so many are badly commented exactly from above reason.

What I wrote somewhere else should fit here, too.. What MxF has done so far is just taking the cdr floating around and coyping it without any efforts re sound improvement or good cover art work. The results are poor..to say the least... The flyer text gives a hint with whom we are dealing with..

Wow, that is one of the strangest pictures of Elvis I have seen. I can't decide if it is a terrible picture or just a very odd one. It definitely is not a very good picture of Elvis. But my favorite thing about this is what they list as the best song: "Best song: If You Love Me". This song is not even on the track list! LOL. (Yes, I'm sure they meant the other awful Olivia Newton-John cover "Let Me Be There", but it doesn't bode well that they can't get their own song titles right on the press release!)
