New recording discovered of Pittsburgh concert???: Can it be true. Many doubt it, but G.I. Blues posted this message recently on the FECC (http://www.elvis-collectors.com/) board:
'RECENTLY DISCOVERED RECORDING OF PITTSBURGH 12/31/76!: WE'VE RECENTLY DISCOVERED A COMPLETE AND EXCELLENT QUALITY RECORDING OF THE HISTORIC PITTSBURGH 12/31/76 SHOW! THE ORIGIN OF THIS RECORDING IS A BIT HAZY BUT ITS PURPORTED TO BE AN EXPERIMENT TO RECORD FROM THE SOUNDBOARD, BUT WITH A DIFFERENT SOUND THAN THE USUAL. MY INFORMATION SAYS THIS WAS RECORDED WITH "AUDIENCE MICS" TO GET MORE OF THE REAL FEEL OF THE CONCERT. AND IT DEFINATELY WAS A SUCCESS! THE RESULT IS AN EXCELLENT RECORDING WITH A SOUND THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL YOU ARE THERE IN THE ARENA! IT DOESN'T SOUND EXACTLY LIKE YOUR REGULAR SOUNDBOARDS, BUT I CAN ASSURE YOU ITS GREAT! BETTER QUALITY THAN ANY RECORDING OF THIS SHOW I HAVE EVER HEARD! AND THE COMPLETE SHOW IS HERE ON 2 CDs. COMPLETE BAND INTRODUCTIONS,EVERYTHING FROM START TO FINISH! ALMOST 90 MINS! 36 TRACKS!'

In the past Elvis' Pittsburgh has been released in varying quality on the following releases:

Rockin' with Elvis New Year's Eve
Auld Lang Syne
Rags to Riches
New Years Eve (FTD)

Same here, three of the previous releases come from the same source. The concert on Rags To Riches came from a diff'rent source in similar quality as the others.

No new recording discovered of Pittsburgh concert: The story we reported yesterday appears to be false. There are two audience recordings of Elvis' Pittsburgh December 1976 concert available - but no recording of 'Soundboard' quality. The promotional blurb below has also been seen before a few years ago.
The famous John Herman recorded tape was officially released on FTD's 'Elvis New Year’s Eve.' The other audience recorded tape (to which the story below is referring) is featured on the 'Rags To Riches' bootleg. While this tape was recorded slightly closer to the piano, hence Elvis playing Rags To Riches sounds clearer, it still is only an audience recording and has its own faults.
For all the intricate details go here to the FECC posting.

So, the report was false?

Surprise factor: ZERO!
