As everybody knows SR concentrates it's work on early 70's live period of Elvis' activity, trying to produce always unreleased shows with Elvis at the top of his possibilities. With the new release, we are proud to present the complete show from April 16th afternoon show, a rare show from a the first tour of the 1972, known well from the Elvis on Tour documentary ... Elvis' love of singing is clear in this tape and we are glad to give you the opportunity to listen to it.
After the emotionally breakdown of Vegas winter season where personal problems have blended with music and subsequent depression, Elvis starts the first of the three tours of the year with the will to give his best. The April tour 19 concerts in 15 days will be filmed from the MGM documentary Elvis in Tour and still present Elvis' at the top of his possibility, the repertoire of the tour is an extension of the Vegas February season with the only inclusion of For The good times and Burning in love coming for his recording March sessions . The man looks pale in front the cameras and no in his best looking although in terrific shape, however in no way is possible to compare him with previous November 1971 tour.
Talking about the show , the show is solid and rough no too long considering a tour concert, we have 53 minutes only, but Elvis worked hard performing 18 songs, including his new single “An American Trilogy.” together his classic best repertoire of Vegas.. Talking of highlight of the show, we can agree with the Florida-Times review, the physical performance of Suspicious minds is surely the best moment of the show…
This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the early Tour. The sound was restored in matter to remove the background noise and preserving Elvis' voice and trying to achieve best possible results. We have spent hours in the studio over the digital restoration of the sound, to give you the chance to hear it with pleasure.
This new CD will come with the classic of deluxe Digipack four panels, containing a collection of live photographs from the actual show .

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
