I got it today, hope it sounds better than the Venus release "Bringing It All Back Home" from a few years ago. And i can't help it to "complain", but why is it that the FTD makes tiny errors all the time. On the inside digipack I can read that disc 1 has a 1974 concert, but on disc 2 I can only read "live June 10 and no year". Does the FTD makes these CD's in a rush or what...;) Stil i'm glad i have it now that's for sure

Terrific !! And long overdue too. It's good that FTD have kept up the 'Memphis' theme as a companion to the 'Way Down' release. I'd be interested to know what the '74 show is like.

Both shows are excellent...I can tell you..we had Johnny B and Thats Allright from Mar 17, 1974 ES already on 48 Hous To Memphis FTD...looking very foreard to this 2 cd powerhouse pack by FTD...thank you Ernst for taking the Mar 1974 show into this pack..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great package indeed. With the "On Stage In Memphis" in the planning I wonder why they only taped one of his shows there in multitrack format. Instead of that they obviously took the whole equippment to Richmond where the 'lost mutitrack' tape was made. Doesn't make sense for a "On Stage In Memphis" project.

"June 9, 1975 (afternoon show)." ? Maybe is JUNE 10 evening show...
Dazman wrote on August 13, 2016
I'd be interested in how the sound will be for the 1975 show, since Vic Anesini will be mastering the sound. I think the effort on the DAE 'Let Me Take You Home' boot will be hard to top.

Marco: good catch, inconsistent promo text and I did just cut and past, sorry. Corrected it.

Still not good ..June 10, 1075 evening show it is..Lex..;-) This.. Tracks 20-22 recorded live at State Fair Coliseum, Jackson, Mississippi, June 6, 1975 Can also be not correct...either it is Jackson, June 9 or Dallas June 6..I go for the former..

I'm curious about the '74 show, but before I decide to buy or not I'll wait to read the reviews after it's released.

Still not good, Ciscoking. Elvis only did one show on June 10. Correct should be June 10, 1975 (no E.S.).
Ciscoking wrote on August 16, 2016
Sure..but believe me....it was an evening show..and no AS..thats how serious collectors list their concerts. Also of help for newbies who are starting to learn..
thekingisalive wrote on August 16, 2016
I don't list my shows like that, and I'm a serious collector. Your "system" is flawed and terribly confusing to newbies. You really need to stop doing this. It makes you look unknowledgeable.
Ciscoking wrote on August 17, 2016
I dont want to look "knowledgable"...I am just a simple fan...enjoy your system.

It was only a matter of time before the Memphis '75 concert was released officially.
