These versions of "See See Rider", "Release Me" and "I Can't Stop Loving You" rank among my favorites. There's so much power in it.. "time has stood stiii-hii-hii-hii-hill since we've been apart" - this version is apocalyptic, as Elvis, taking the metaphorical stance of a modern-day Samson, takes down the temple of the Filistines in a final obliterative gush of primal force with which he ends the song.

EnigmaticSun, Your absolutely right. I play the original "On Stage" all the time. over and over again, for that exact reason.

I bought this one aout a year or so ago and even though the crowd was overdubbed I thiught it was a great performance. The I Can't Stop Loving You track his voice sounds so strong there and I agree with EnigmaticSun said about I Can't Stop Loving You. Too bad they didn't put it on the Legacy Edition of ON STAGE. Overall I think it's a great album one of my favorites.
