The double vinyl will be accompanied from a DVD with the best video possible of the show . After the success of the first four releases We decided: to give you more.….. so we decided to not only bring you the best audio , but also the best video quality possible.

This will be the first STEP of a wider project, infact the producers’ intention is to accompanied this first volume with other three volumes, in the way to cover all the soundboarding recordings of August 1970.
The Vegas third season allows Elvis, after the June studio session, to demonstrate his true abilities in a wider range. We see the best of Elvis in songs that will become the fulcrum of the Elvis show until 1972, Here you can hear the complete opening night. The audio has been carefully remastered from the original source and is complete from the beginning to the end. The vinyl will make the rest, providing to the listener an unforgettable experience!! The opening night is surely a great challenge for Elvis, the shooting of a movie and the rehearsal of a large quantity of new stuff gives the possibility to the man to delivery if no the best show something really different and unique to the audience. The opening show presents 8 new songs, including both the sides of his next two singles!!! …. the rest is history……
