Tennessee Starlight

The "Straight Arrow'' label that released the CD "Pieces Of My Life" (SA 2005-1-02) containing the famous Asheville July 24, 1975 concert in 2005 will release their second CD later this month. The new release will be titled "Tennessee Starlight" (SA2006-2-02) and will contain the complete audience recording from the February 1977 tour in Johnson City, TN. on February 19. Approximate running time 67:26. From the FECC site: Just as their previous release, this CD will come in a deluxe package with a 16-page color booklet containing many photographs (some never before published) from the actual concert and comprehensive liner notes with information about the concert and whole tour. Among the show highlights are spellbinding performances of "You Gave Me A Mountain", "My Way", "Love Letters" and "Hurt". An unusual moment comes right before the end of the show when Elvis performs a wild version of "Polk Salad Annie". According to the producers, this recording comes from an original audience recorded master tape that was transferred and professionally restored by 24 bit technology for the best possible sound quality.

I like the cover! This is a good show. I have had this in cassette format for many years and the sound is very good; this CD may even be improved on that.

I think it cannot top their first release. Anyway...this is the best tour of 1977 and this show not the worst out of it. Polk Salad Annie close to the end is a rare moment..

looks like a promising follow up to their 1st excellent Asheville 24.7.75 show release(which i thought was superb!) i like their 'straight' releases and liner notes are especially 'straight' and good! this is a label to support (and follow) in the future!
