First In Line Vol. 2

MxF LP&2CD Special Product November   2019

To be released in the middle of November, First In Line Vol.2 (MxF Records) will focus on Elvis’ January&February 1974 Vegas season, featuring the midnight show from January 30th and the evening show from February 08th, 1974, both the shows previously unreleased and taken directly from the original ambiance high-quality tape.

Elvis’ tolerance for Vegas has reached its limit in the previous august 1973 season so after the deserved rest of 5 months, Elvis is back in Las Vegas Hilton. According to the new contract, He will perform twice a year, but only two weeks at a time rather than the previous four. The repertoire was reduced compared to the previous season to 15/20 songs with three new additions: Help me, Spanish Eyes and the popular Let Me Be There. The choice of songs in the different shows varied little, but due the 9 days of the distance of the two shows here presented we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows. .

They are happy to be able to associate two great performances with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too. 

Both The ambiance tapes are of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time you can feel and live the live atmosphere of the intimate Las Vegas Showroom. In the first show closer to the opening of the season we still have the splendid You’ve Lost The Loving Feeling dropped 9 days later, with the inclusion of Sweet Caroline, the classic Johnny B. Good and the sentimental The First Time Ever I saw your Face..I longer show and slightly better in the audio quality and for this reason included in the LP.

This label and SR should join forces. Wouldn't make any difference though... They still will release stuff without "improving" the sound quality.
