It's Tahoe Time

The „Rainbow Records“ label is going to release it´s second CD entitled "It´s Tahoe Time" containing a 50 minutes long performance of Elvis Presley´s October 13, 1974 Midnight Show at the Sahara Tahoe Hotel, Lake Tahoe. Until today there has never been a CD release containing any of the eight performances of this much too little known of concert engagement at Lake Tahoe in autumn of 1974. Synopsis: The recording of this show has been taken from an early generation (audience recorded) Cassette-Tape and it has been carefully worked on in a professional studio. So the Producers are able to present one of (only two until today known of) recorded performances of Elvis´ October 74 concert series at the Sahara Tahoe Hotel in good and listenable sound-quality, rounded off by a great 16-page booklet containing all necessary information regarding the October 74´ engagement at Lake Tahoe including a special report by a female fan who saw all eight shows (!!), written just a few days after this engagement was over. By the way: At this show Elvis was wearing his then brandnew „Mexican Sundial“-Suit which he seemed to lock away after the short engagement was over - until 1977. We believe that this is a very interesting performance. Elvis is in good mood and delivers a mixture of both his early and his later classics. Hear Elvis doing classy versions of songs like „It´s Midnight“, „Big Boss Man“, „I´m Leavin´“ and an impromptu version of „Lawdy Miss Clawdy“. As a bonus you can hear James Burton playing his guitar and giving an impression of how it sounded when he was at his very peak – in 1973. The seven minute long „Music Makers“ – Special has been taken from the original ´73 Vinyl-Album „Guitar“ – a real rarity and a nice bonus for a real nice cd!

At Last!! I hope it appears in decent sound quality, because the cdr I have from this particular show for some time now, hasn't. It's a very good show, especially I'm leavin' and It's midnight. If the sound is much better than my cdr I'll buy this concert again.
