This show would be a great release for the fort baxter classic series if they ever choose to continue it,it has better sound than some soundboards,although im not an audiance recording fan this one has really good sound,as for these reissue from other labels,not interested,and the bonus songs seem to be a mix bag of well known recordings that you can get on other imports that feature the entire show!

Nope! I think only "snow is on the roses" and "Rags To Riches" are real AR, the rest is a kind of SB (The Show itself recorded with two microphones in the showroom). Hound Dog has 3 Ends, the first end was too short. You don´t need it if you have Fort Baxter releases in your collection.....

Its the thing to do nowdays, isnt it? Rip-off an existing quality cd from yesteryear ( Baxter), and re-release the damn thing once more, without having to pay a frikkin'cent in gettin' something new yourself. No, this is so much easier. Leave it to the Germans. if its not nailed to the floor, they take it. And for your information, people, this show was recorded with 2 mikes by RCA employees. So its not your run of the mill 'audience' recording.

Nice gesture to the members. Anyway..does anybody understand the inclusion of Hound Dog as a bonus song.....?? We already have several live

It's crap. But at least cheap crap. Better than expensive crap:)

For an audience recording it's okay. The cover is very poor, one of the worst I've seen. Don't know why they included Elvis' rambling as a bonus. Really doesn't make sense.

Yep! It´s a real silver disc. I´m not owner of the A Profile Volume 1 from F.Baxter. So: it can´t be wrong to buy it for 5€ incl. package and porto..... It´s a nice show, some Infos from the show and the bonus tracks; a 4-sided booklet with pictures of this time. Only the front-cover and the cd has a 50´s pic. The most bonus tracks are from other F.Baxter releases. I think it´s limited on 1000 cd´s. A special thanks from a web site to members. Go on with the good work!!!
