The CD "Opening Night - January 1970" will be the follow up to Madison's "Hot August Night". This January 26, 1970 opening show recording was overall of poor quality because of severe microphone overload. It ain't perfect but now for the first time you will be able to enjoy this great concert from beginning to end according to the press-release.
From the Press release:
This excellent new source has been greatly improved into a surprising fuller, dynamic and warmer sound. Elvis' vocal never sounded so good, and neither gives the impression this was produced from a worn out tape. Most previous releases of this show had the closing song cutting short ( less than 20 seconds ) and mentioned as '' not completely recorded ''. The whole closing number was recorded and features on this new version.
This limited edition of Opening Show - January 1970 will come with a professionally designed 16-page booklet, liner notes, memorabilia and photographs from Elvis' second Las Vegas season. Don't miss out in March 2008 a remarkable concert and Closing Night - February 1970's perfect companion, Opening Night - January 1970 !!!! Watch out for an unreleased 1973 soundboard recording from the same label !!!!
