Hampton Twice

According to Gravel Road Music the “Star-sprangled Spectacular Bicentennial ’76” will raise a few questions for the critics as Elvis sounds way better now with a mastering job done properly… The second disc is a great re-mastering of the famous Hampton ’72 concert, which blows all previous releases of this show out of the water – Great sound, fantastic dynamics and Elvis in amazing voice.

Doesn`t matter what you think about this show..the sound is extra fine..

Yes of cause some fans really think that Elvis owed them something. But it is not like you are forced to buy anything, so if you dont like it dont buy it, as I see it Elvis gave his fans a lot more than they gave back to him, even today a lot of fans use most of their time rambling about how much better they could have done his job, if I didnt know better I would think they were jealous of his succes.

By the way his emotional issues are not something i overlook,i fully believe he was bi polar which is hell to deal with.

I would not give my manager 50%,id also not recorded alot of thoe 60's stuff,although songs like yoga is is a classic.
When your job is making music then yes you owe those who are buying your stuff the best.

A lot of people blame Elvis for not beeing 100% perfect in everything he did, I seriously doubt that if those people have had the chance to "Walk a mile in his shoes" they would have done any better. I never felt that he owned me (or any other fan) anything, instead I am really thankful for the 1000 of hours of joy he had given me.

I dont care for parker,but elvis could have did things differt,he didnt seem to care enough and because of that he made no so great choices. Lack of confidence,sometimrs lazyness,bi polar disorder,are these facts,i dont know but they are just some of my views.

Yes, if only one of us clever fans have had Col. Parkers manager job, or even better, been Elvis, then he would have been The worlds greatest legend.... Oh wait HE IS !!!

If ftd was a smart collecotrs label,they would release a on tour set,but they are not. I will never understand this desire to tie in a dvd set with the audio set. Do they think fans want to buy 10 items at a time,how about things be spaced out a bit? Not to mention a on tour set aint happening.

If we blame The Colonel for Elvis not appearing on world stages, making few TV appearances, giving a mininum of interviews, not appearing in any films in the last few years, the lack of professional footage, and 'not helping' him to stay on this earth longer, then this curiously created the eternal legend. The less is better stance taken by Parker whatever his motives, has ensured that saturation point was never reached while he was alive and so we are constantly looking for more. The year 1972, Hampton and other Elvis On Tour concerts, are very interesting as in hindsight were in world stage terms, and us getting to know him, an early goodbye.

So true dgirl. Elvis could have played anywhere and should have been on the major stages in London, Tokyo, Sydney, etc.

Tony, Whats' even sadder is that Elvis was playing towns like Hampton VA (and Vegas) instead of the major cities of the world. Really sad actually.

What a sad toll those mere four years between these concerts took on Elvis, it's tragic to compare the cover pictures and the recordings contained on the CDs.

Great!!! I love "Gravel Road" label.

Everytime a remastered version appears I ask myself if they really just re-work the CD (so it's 1:1 contentwise) or if they use another tape or source).

I'm sure Ernie is saving this show for an On Tour project, since it's the best show they recorded together with Richmond.

I`d too, say when you don`t have the originals - especially the Hampton 1972 concert - you are well served with this new release. The artwork will be great, too..I am sure..

Indeed, it is a total shame that no one has released the April 9, 1972 show. For now, it remains locked away in the vault at Sony. My prayer is that someday FTD will get around to releasing it. For now, the very best import production of that show is Triangle's "The Hampton Roads Concert," arguably the best bootleg ever! I doubt that Gravel Road could improve the sound of that release at all, it is that good. Nevertheless, if you don't have the Triangle release, this one may suffice. Gravel Road puts a lot into their artwork. As for the August 1, 1976 show, Fort Baxter did a pretty good job with it back in 1994. The show itself is really sad. Elvis was in terrible voice. But again, if you don't own it already....

Sony has the complete show,but ernie,isnt too smart and chooses to overlook this show!

You mean no one has the complete 72 show anywhere? Total shame

Pfff, do we need this? No! Previously released cd's that we already have in splendid sound. Wake up guys and bring on something NEW!
