After a longer break Touchdown Productions proudly presents two new releases - "Sunset In Vegas" and "A Night In Saginaw"’!
The first one presents you the midnight show from August 23, 1974 in Las Vegas for the first time in complete form. The show was first relased in 1993 as ‘Vegas Birthday Show’, but it was incomplete and missed three songs from the show. The soundquality is very good for an audience recording. The show itself is a good one. Elvis wasn’t very talkative and was focussed on singing and entertaining the audience.
Tracklisting - Sunset In Vegas

total runtime: 68.15 min
The second release presents you the show from April 25, 1977 in Saginaw. The concert was released for the first time in 1994. The soundquality is significantly better as Touchdown Productions was able to find a new source. After the very good concert in Ann Arbor the day before, Elvis also offered in Saginaw a very solid show with nice versions of ‘Heartbreak Hotel’, ‘Little Sister’ and a mighty fine version of ‘My Way’.
Also included are six former released songs, which got newly remastered.
