The MxF import-label announced the release entitled "Atlanta, Second Stop" dedicated to Elvis’ 1973 June Tour. It features the June 29, 1973 08:30 PM Show. 

From the press-release:
This CD is entitled Atlanta, Second Stop, featuring the Omni Coliseum June 29, 1973 8.30 PM Show.
The June Tour represents the second and last tour of the year, Elvis on tour means Elvis at the top of his possibilities. In the Omni coliseum Elvis performed five shows in the single the tour. The show here presented is the second one. The begin of the 1973 presents an Elvis still at the top, no more a rocking singer, He deliveries with enthusiasm the classic repertoire post-72. The year was begun with the glorious Hawaii TV satellite Show and after a pale useless Vegas season, Elvis recuperated from the fatigue, started the first tour of the year in a different mood, the second tour is even better with our man very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sings with power delivering a solid and long show, with the classic repertoire of the 1973 including a incredible “Steaming rolling blues” version, together the really dramatic What Now My Love and the classic Bridge Over Troubled Water. In this specific solid show. Elvis replaced the classic Bridge Over Troubled Water with the gospel How Great Thou Art and added two nice variation the sensitive Help Me Make It through The Night and the Beatles’ song Something for the rest is the classic songs line up of the tour. On stage is an impressive figure in the Orange Sunburst, the rocker attitude still intact, the voice great, the atmosphere enormous, the demand terrific, 17.143 lucky people attended at the show.

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 is very good really impressive without doubt one of the best audience recording coming from the specific June tour. We are very proud to give you the opportunity listening with pleasure this solid show. Considering it was taped from the audience in a big hall the audio is incredibly good.. Elvis and overall the band is loud and clear, the sounds is very powerful in very good balanced mix 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 panels digipack with a collection of photos taken during show.. All the photos come from the Steve Rino & Bob Rush book, Elvis June 1973 tour. The recording good quality and the superb show give to Atlanta second stop the status of unique.

Unusual song lineup? Looks like a good show, too bad it's an audience recording.

The problem I have here is that this import release starts at the same point as the cd-r floating around in colectors circles. I am afraid it is another copy and paste job. This means good show, bad sound. I would take it with great reservations and wait for sound samples..

"The show is unreleased and complete" - so did Elvis skip the first part of See See Rider?
