This really does seem like a great release. With this FTD-release Sony/RCA/FTD have released everything they have from this Vegas stand, except the February 19 Dinner Show. Why has that show not been included on a second disc? Now, we still have to track down a bootleg, if we want to listen to those songs... A missed opportunity, but I'll definitely get it for the songs that are included.

My guess is hat they wanted to create a "new" live album, a "on stage pt.2", that explains the title and that they used four already released tracks, because there where no unreleased versions of those songs in the archive. I didn't know why you want more material that is already released on this cd? Isn't unreleased stuff more welcome than already released material?

I'm very critical with ftd. The release a lot of redundant stuff, terrible sounding shows, recordings where elvis could be best described as a sleepwalker, often released in a way that screams: "we don't give a fu×k, cause you buy it anyway."
But this seems to be a brillant cd, i'm really excited about it.

Well, I am again only partly satisfied. Good news are the previously unreleased tracks. But for the rest, when I take a look into my iPod lists, there are still left-overs like 3 tracks on „Today, Tomorrow & Forever“, another 4 tracks on the CD of „Writing for the King“. So why do not collect all those together with the 3 songs from „Polk Salad Annie“ (not belonging to the Feb. 15th concert) on a 2nd disc, adding the rehearsal songs from Feb 18th at least once properly mixed (and maybe more), so we would have finally those before spread songs collected and in an homogeneous mix on one album. So again bitter sweet.

The stereo concert releases are back !! A marvellous change for the better. I think this might be the beginning of the complete sessions releases Ernst Jorgensen was talking about in the latest 'man and his music' magazine. Makes good economic sense to have it on 1 CD and keep the unreleased stuff in the majority. Didn't know there was a complete 'I Got a Woman' from this period. Should be a major winner here.

Great news. This is going to be the first ftd in a long long time that's really worth buying, not only for completeness sake. A lot of unreleased, great sounding stuff of elvis in his prime. Really looking forward to it.
