View Full Version : Rarest live cuts?

05-23-2006, 07:30 AM
I need a little help. I am trying to put together a cd set of the rarest live cuts for Elvis' entire career and, although I have some in my posession, there are so many cds out there, I don't know where to begin. If someone could lead me in the right direction with cuts you can think of and what cd they are from, I would really appreciate it. Then I can go out and buy them and get my cd set made!
Thank you so much.

Oh, one question too. I just heard a " When God Calls me Home" from, I believe Vegas in 76. Anybody know what cd that is on?

Thanks again

Some of the rarest songs live:
Moody Blue,
Where no one stands alone (both can be found on: thank you very much/moody blue and other great performances from fort baxter),
Good time charlies got the blues (on: if you talk in your sleep, fort baxter),
When the snow is on the roses (on: live in las vegas box-set, RCA),
Danny Boy (on tucson '76, FTD)
You'll never walk alone (on: pure stage power, label ?)
Rags To Riches (on: New years eve, FTD) to name a few.

The only problem is when you make a cd-r like this is the overall sound quality..most of the recordings are recorded from the audience, and the sound is most of the time not that good. The songs i mentioned are all soundboard recordings, exept the last 2, (so the sound is very good).
