Unforgettable Nights In Baltimore And Little Rock?
Released by an unknown label (using the places of the coverts as “label”) are two CDs entitled “An Unforgettable Night In Baltimore” and “An Unforgettable Night In Little Rock”. Are these unforgettable releases? Design The two CDs come is similar basic designs, with the same amount of information we get on the Follow That Dream releases; date, musicians and the track listing. Content The CDs contain concerts recorded from the audience from November 9, 1971 in Baltimore and April 17, 1972 in Little Rock. We’ll skip the review of the content of the first CD (Baltimore 8.30 P.M.) right here because we can hardly hear Elvis. A pity since Stein Erik Skar’s “The concert Years” mentions this November tour received rave previews. Let’s hope we get a better quality release some day, until then this CD is for my concert archive only. The April 17,1972 concert in Little Rock (8.30 P.M.) from Elvis’ fourth tour this year (April 5 to 19, 1972) is perhaps best known by fan because several concerts were filmed by Pierre Adidge and Robert Abel for the documentary “On Tour” which won a “Golden Globe” award for the best documentary in the USA. In Little Rock only the some activity surrounding an Elvis concert was filmed. The CD opens with a few minutes of Jackie Kahane, but fortunately it doesn’t last too long before we get Elvis because Jacky can’t play an audience like Elvis can. Why he kept that man as part of his opening act?!? Only Elvis, or for that matter The Colonel, will probably know. This concert comes in a slightly better audio quality so we actually tried to listen to the entire CD. But we started skipping through the songs to check if Elvis was on something relaxing because the songs sounded slower than we know Elvis delivered them in 1972. But probably the producers were on something relaxing, because the tape runs at a too slow. Therefor we turned it off, we like to enjoy listening to Elvis, not to be irritated. We didn’t even notice it listening to Jacky Kahane … his jokes were always slow. Conclusion Only one conclusion possible, use these CDs for coaster … although, with the hole in the middle they aren’t even fit for that … You’d rather stick to better sounding releases with basically the same material from the same tour.

The Baltimore concert is the worst sounding audience cd I have in my collection, such a shame for a great show like this. Awful that there are people out there who release such a bad sounding cd. But I can put my glass of beer on it, expensive solution as a matter of fact. The Little Rock concert is a lot better, fortunately. But I wish I never bought the first one, it sounds even worse than Chicago, june 16th 1972.

I played it on a DVD set that automatically adds breaks between tracks, but your addition is another reason to skip these releases :-)

Kees, I wonder if you noticed that there are 2 second silence pauses between each two tracks on both CDs ?! Also, there is very sharp click at the very beginning of track 01 of Baltimore CD. I had no courage to listen more than few seconds then. Actually these two so called CDs are probably worst s..t that I got in my whole life. To release live CD with 2 second pauses between tracks.... unbelievable, unforgettable.
