This project is designed to coincide with Las Vegas' 100th anniversary this year. To celebrate the occasion, Capitol/EMI's newest label imprint - created in partnership with Las Vegas - will issue archival CDs showcasing historic Vegas concerts.
The series kicks off April 26 with eight titles. Highlighting the group is a 1986 Sinatra show from the Golden Nugget, previously unreleased in any form. Other live discs on tap for April 26: Dean Martin at the Sands in 1967; Bobby Darin at the Flamingo in 1963; Louis Prima and Keely Smith at the Sahara in 1958 and Nancy Wilson at the Sands in 1968.
Additionally, April 26 will see the release of Wayne Newton's "Mr. Las Vegas!" -- a compilation of his best-known songs supplemented by two unreleased live tracks -- and two various artists collections, featuring the likes of Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole and Peggy Lee.
Then on May 10, the series continues with a reissue of Presley's "Elvis: Live From Las Vegas," a live set recorded at the International Hotel (now Las Vegas Hilton) in 1970 and '72.
