Everybody Let's Rock: From Japan With Love Vol. 3 CD
July 7, 2017 - 12:40:43 AM
Recorded live from the audience in Las Vegas, NV, August 5th, 1972, D/S and M/S, this 2CD-set is subtitled 'From Japan With Love Vol. 3' because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.
The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Dinner show was first released in 2008 on the CD 'Directly From The 1972 Elvis Summer Festival'. This earlier CD was taken from different, inferior source tape. Our new recording is of much better sound quality. The Las Vegas, August 5th, 1972 Midnight show is previously unreleased.
There is no need to discuss the fact that ALL shows from August/September 1972 are excellent! Natural highlights are especially ballads like 'What Now My Love', ''An American Trilogy', 'My Way' or 'For The Good Times' and rock’n’rolls like 'A Big Hunk O’Love' or 'Johnny B. Goode' One song from Midnight show stands out: a cool, one-off of 'Jailhouse Rock'! Needless to say that this is a rarity for 1972, and what a great version it is too - it easily beats all other 70's versions.
Both concerts are taken from a recently found first generation copies of original audience recorded cassette tapes. They were never before available in listenable sound, until now! You may ask your supplier for samples.
This CD is packaged in a nicely designed double digipak with great collection of quality images taken in August 1972.
If you enjoyed some of our other releases such as 'Rock & Soul… And Some Mighty Fine Rock’n’Roll' and 'The Make The World Go Away', then you sure to enjoy our latest release.
As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy it. We are planning another CD taken from those 'Japanese' tapes. So stay tuned!

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.
