View Full Version : From Sunset Boulevard to Paradise Road
I just ordered this CD and I can't wait to hear it. I guess it's from '74 when Elvis tried out a new show and then changed his mind and went back to the routine.
Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect? I've read some great reviews and i want to know if I can trust them.

Yes, you're right. This is a great cd with an excellent performance. Elvis re-invented his show and performed some ultra rare stuff like GOOD TIME CHARLIE'S GOT THE BLUES or DOWN IN THE ALLEY. The king was in a very good voice and the sound quality of the recording matches the show!. The rehearsals are interisting, too. There's a fun-version of FADED LOVE and the mother******-version of PROMISED LAND. And beside the great content, the artwork is done beautifully.

I think you'll greatly enjoy this CD set, tjs. While the show is certainly historic, I personally enjoy listening to the rehearsals even more. That's The Way It Is whenever you're listening to rehearsals or outtakes; you get that great 'fly on the wall' perspective.
His voice was in fantastic shape at that time. I thought he sounded slightly downbeat during the show though--which is surprising when you consider the new song lineup--starting with his introduction of himself as the NBC peacock. But the show is definitely a great listen for its fresh songlist, and the sound is really good.
The real ear candy for me has got to be the rehearsals though.
