The Madison label will release soon a new CD titled ''A New Kind Of Rhythm!'' featuring the March 21, 1976 evening show in Cincinnati, OH. For the first time, the whole performance will become available as originally recorded, in '' living binaural ''. This concert was recorded in binaural with Larrie Londin's drums separated on one track, which definitely gives a new life to that show with his heavy drumming style. The recording runs also a bit more longer since it contains the complete '' final announcements '', not featured on '' Holding Back The Years '' released in mono.
Elvis' performance that night at the Riverfront Coliseum was excellent by 1976 standard. His revamped TCB crew with Larrie Londin on drums and Shane Keister on piano certainly add that evening, a freshness that cannot be denied. Elvis was on stage to have fun and he did, but got serious on songs such as '' You Gave Me A Mountain '', '' America The Beautiful '', '' And I Love You So '' and '' Hurt '' ( including a full reprise ). His new musicians didn't let him down either on heavier numbers like '' Steamroller Blues '' and '' Polk Salad Annie ''. As the audio evidence proves, Larrie's powerhouse drumming and Shane's bright keyboard stylings gave the music a new spark, a new kind of rhythm for America's Bicentennial year.
The packaging will come with a 16 page booklet , picture disc, relevant liner notes and over 25 photographs from the actual concert. This is not a new show...but definitely a different and new kind of sound !
