Elvis Rocks The Garden

January 18, 2021 | Music

In 2012 we have released the great June 9th Madison Square Garden NYC concert (CD "Left a Good Job in The City," SA 2012-24-02). This, now classic, is hopelessly sold out for many years. Now we have restored this recording again from scratch. In 2020 we obtained two quality tapes of other NYC concerts from June 10th Evening and June 11th, Afternoon. We have decided to release all three shows in one deluxe 3CD set.
We are fully aware that the June 10th Evening show was released several times officially by RCA from the professional multi-track tapes. Nevertheless, we have found an alternative source - an excellent audience-recorded tape! It brings you a whole new listening experience! The incredible audience reaction to every song will blow you away! The June 11th Afternoon show was released in 2010 from an inferior source. Once again, we have found an excellent audience-provided alternative. Unfortunately the last three songs were not recorded by the same person. We have used a bit less-quality secondary source to make the show complete. Both the June 10th E/S and 11th A/S were recorded by the same person, using a reel-to-reel tape deck instead of usual the cassette recorder. These recordings are new to your ears - they were not in the circulation yet! If you have enjoyed our "Left a Good Job in The City" CD, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local audio vendor for teasers! Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipack including photos from the three NYC shows and the Daily News press review, this new release is the beauty that you must not miss!

Looks like it could be a winner if the sound quality is as good as advertised.
