The new import label EPB76 records announce its first release entitled titled "Big Boss Man In Trouble". This release features Elvis June 6, 1976 show as recorded from the audience in Atlanta. The CD is due for release early November and runs for 80 minutes.
From the press release:
This release is taken directly from original master tape and professional remastered with a great audio-quality. Its a full length show , the best of the June tour. It's a very good performance with Elvis in good mood and strong voice, the highlights of the concert are surely the rare last live version of “Shake A Hand” and an outstanding performances of “America", "Hurt" and "Big Boss Man”.
The CD contains a de-luxe 16-page full color booklet with 16 rare photos mostly unreleased taken from the original concert in a very professional layout.
Extract from the inside note:
Atlanta, June 6th and the end of a tour of 13 shows where the last four were just in Atlanta. In spite of a passable tour with Elvis often not in good condition, slow in his movements and lacking concentration in some songs. Despite this the tour was completely sold out and with the public full of enthusiasm. The last show, presented here lasts 80 minutes. We decided to leave out the solos because the audio quality was very bad in respect to the rest of the tape and overall to keep the concert to one CD of purely Elvis.The Show is good the repertoire result very interesting without doubt is no the classic boring concert of the last period of Elvis' live activity. Elvis sings 19 songs with a great mood with a great public reaction, here is almost possible to breath the atmosphere of the Elvis' performance. The electricity that Elvis generates in the attendance is possible to touch with our hands what mostly considering the limitation of the audience tape here is the winner element…
