Road To Nowhere

September 01, 2016 | Music

Recorded live at the Freedom Hall, Louisville, KY, May 21st, 1977

Expected soon is our new CD release titled ”Road To Nowhere” (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-07), recorded live from the audience in Louisville, KY, May 21st, 1977. It was the second stop of Elvis’ May 1977 tour and according to Larry Geller, Elvis was in a very bad shape prior the show. Dr. Nick was present in the hotel room, using cold water with ice to make Elvis ready for concert. Listening to this CD, one must say that under those circumstances, Elvis did a remarkably good job! Among the concert highlights are ”That’s All Right“, „You Gave Me A Mountain“ ”Heartbreak Hotel”, ”My Way” and usual showtopper “Hurt“. The May 21st, 1977 show is previously unreleased in any form and it was never available on the collectors circuit in acceptable sound. The producers have been looking for a good sounding recording for long time. Finally they got a solid sounding tape from an Elvis collector in the USA. The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with a positive concert review from the local press and a collection of quite decent images taken on May 21st, 1977 in Louisville, KY.

E.P.Collector label have produced 'quite listenable' CD releases in the recent past, so that being the case i'll be getting this release also.

Yes..a new label with decent releases throughout..the sound is really good compared to what we had before on cd-r only. I heard a few samples already. The show belongs to the better ones from 1977 definitely. The set lost looks fine and I really dif Thats All Right from 1977.

I wonder why the title "Road To Nowhere". Perhaps the producers of this import cd felt that is the way Elvis must've been feeling at the time... on a road to nowhere. It's still sad to think about after all these years.
