I'm not exactly thrilled with another show from 1976 with the usual songlist, but I haven't passed up an FTD concert yet and will not start with this one. I could do without the book though.

Adam S. is right about the '76 show; only come up with such a show when Elvis sings a rare live version of some songs or the sound is more than excellent. Also I don't like the idea of this project with the two CD's and a book; Many fans cannot afford buying this one.

Why will they release two Cds with the book ? Is one Cd not enough ? Do they want to get in the Book of Records ? This is too much !!! Ernst said at the beginning that there will be 3 Cds every year. And how many Cds we get in 5 years ? Too much !!! Ernst, please think about it !!! TCB.

Big dissapointment. Especially Fort Worth show. Where is Shake a hand, Steamroller blues, Young and beautiful,Help me and Burning love, mentioned a few weeks ago ? The only reason to release 1976 concert is in my opinion - first - great sound quality, second - "special" song in the songlist of the concert. The songlist of the Fort Worth gig is only average. Tucson 76 was and is a winner ! Not only for including Danny boy but also for Help me, Help me make it... and Burning love. The only interesting thing here is Polk salad Annie. Sorry to say but it is not that I was waiting for.
