May 06, 2019 | Music

Touchdown will release a CD with the title I Do A Lot O’ Things, But I Can’t Fly!. It containts the August 20, 1971 show this is what they say about it:

Touchdown proudly presents another show from the August/September engagement in 1971, recorded on the dinner show on August 20, 1971. The tracklisting is enjoyable and so is Elvis! 

We worked hard to improve the sound quality and hope that you'll enjoy the result as much as we do. As usual the CD is accompanied by a full-color 16 page booklet with lots of rare photos and information on the event itself.

The show is not bad and what I heard sounded not bad either. The show is mis-labelled as being the DS. In fact it is the MS according to an eye witness book (Kieran Davis, At The International). They probably took the date from cdr The Concert Years Vol.2 which also has the wrong date (DS). Just a side note.
