Tanya For Dinner

Coming soon from the Straight Arrow label is their new digipak release, 'Tanya For Dinner' featuring the March 28, 1975 dinner performance. 

Elvis hits the ground running with his usual openers, and keeps the energy up and pacing crisp throughout. New covers like "And I Love You So" -- taped in Los Angeles just a few weeks earlier -- are bright. Even the jokes are chipper, such as his lyric change to "I want a little drink of brandy" during "Big Boss Man," a tiny rib at stage assistant Charlie Hodge. Listen for outstanding renditions of "It's Midnight" and "I'm Leavin'" and a warm introduction of teenaged country singing sensation, Tanya Tucker. The audience recording is previously unreleased from a recently-discovered source. The quality is very good, from start to finish, save a brief segment during band introductions, where a secondary source is used to fill in a missing portion.

Bad title. But good material. Tanya Tucker, is a huge Elvis fan, and I'm sure she would be flattered with the album title, however.
