Lonesome August Nights

SR LP&2CD Special Product February 2020 To be released in the early February,

Lonesome August Nights (SR Records) will focus on Elvis’ August 1972 Las Vegas season, featuring the dinner&midnight show from August 18th, 1972, previously unreleased and taken directly from the original high-quality tapes. The August 18 Midnight Show was previously released on vinyl format in the SR boxed edition of Not too Sweet, here for the first time will be released on CD format completely remastered and in superior sound.

The SR attitude is to present Elvis at the peak of his possibility and without any doubt Elvis’ second week in Vegas August season presents him at the top of his possibilities, delivering great shows. If Rock is an attitude, then the man has it. The performances are terrific, rough and sharp.

On August 18th on the backstage just before to go on the stage The Colonel informed Elvis that his Lawyer had delivered the application for a divorce on the Los Angeles Superior Court... Elvis's answer was a simple nod with the head and two unbelievable SHOWS. Elvis at least at the begin seems to enjoy this newfound freedom delivering an unbelievable last great Las Vegas season.

Elvis sings and looks magnificent on the stage is iperactive and he performs all the songs to the maximum of his possibilities, presenting all the best of his repertoire from the previous two years combined with the last 1972 new autobiografical song ranging in all musical genres as only he can do. We are happy to be able to associate great performance with great audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too.

The ambiance tapes are both 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.

The shows has already said are great, we have some a few variations in the songs, this for sure make more interesting the listen of both the shows, See See Rider is back as opener song and the show now consist in a solid collection of great quality songs all well performed . Two new addictions at the repertoire : What Now My Love and My Way . Due to Elvis’ moment two sentimental&life songs no randomly chosen. However talking about best song we like to say that the rockin’ side is still present in Elvis and Polk Salad Annie never sounded better: both Elvis and the band are pushing strong with a great job of Jerry Cheff bass guitar.

A long promo text about nothing. The shows surely have been copied from cd-r as always and the cdr dont sound good. I know them.

Boxcar, I really hope that you are right. Otherwise this will never stop.

I doubt that SR has ever seen a original high-quality tape. And I can't believe the collectors still fall for their "12 in red viny, 7 in yellow vinyl, 50 in different covers, 17 with glossy photo and 27 with a piece of Elvis' underwear" is unbelievable for me. What a rip off. Astonishing they never give up. Is there really somebody out there who spends this amount of money for an average audience recoding on vinyl?
