Two New Touchdown releases
June 5, 2017 - 4:56:27 PM
'Beyond All Bounds'
Once again after a longer break Touchdown comes back with two new releases! The first one is 'Beyond All Bounds' which includes recordings from the Seattle concerts on April 29, 1973. The afternoon show is well known, but never sounded better than this time. The recording was carefully remastered and it now sounds clearer and much better balanced than before. Up on that we offer you six songs from the evening show from the same day in even better audience quality than the complete show from the afternoon. It’s a real treat to listen to the songs in this quality.

The second CD - 'December Heights' - offers the show from December 11, 1975 (10pm show). The show was released before from a much inferior sounding recording. The recording was mastered very carefully and now you get - besides the last two tracks - the complete show in excellent audience quality!
Both releases will be presented with beautiful 16-page booklets including lots of pictures from the concert respectively the Vegas season in question and informations about the concerts.

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.
