Label: CMG / Legacy

Following his triumphant comeback special for NBC at the end of 1968, Elvis Presley made a highly-publicized return to live performance in 1969, booking an exclusive engagement at The International Hotel in Las Vegas. Elvis treated audiences to a raucous rock set inspired by the recent sessions for his just-released studio album From Elvis In Memphis, backed by vocal groups The Imperials

and The Sweet Inspirations as well as an early version of his famed TCB Band. Live In Las Vegas 1969 showcases this incredible, important phase in Elvis' career with a previously unreleased set from the first of many engagements at The International Hotel.

Great. That is what I call news. An unreleased show. Wow ! I am so excited. Now we got 4 shows left in parts unreleased. I heard rumours that they ( Sony ) will release all 1969 Shows ( 14 if I count them right ) in a box set cause of the 50th anniversary. Bring them on. I love these shows.

Great looking release for Record Store Day, but I'll also wait for further details on a CD box set.

I bought the record and got the download for my iPod. Fine mix, similar to Hot August Night, and I hope they‘ll keep it that way for the CD box set.
