RCA will never release it !You've got that right..RCA hasnt released nothing lately but the same ole recycled stuff.That last release was a joke....big build up too about the 'LIVE' Texas concert..then they went and edited out every single spoken word by Elvis...any one listening to that release that didnt know too much about Elvis would get the impression that Elvis never talked to his Audiences..I purchased that new release on the first day it was available because I wanted to hear that new 'never before heard ' concert..It was the first thing I listened to..I could not believe it.no spoken words,just one song after the next,from beginning to end...I have heard many,many,many Elvis concerts,I have over 100 diffrent concerts by Elvis,and at every concert Elvis ever did,he always spoke to the audience,played around,joked,(that was part of the fun of goin to an Elvis concert)but not the one in Texas according to RCA..Why did they bother to even release the concert if they were going to edit it /I mean it did not contain one single 'NEW ' tune by Elvis,so what was the point in releasing it anyway.....I truly hope Im not the only one who is sick of what RCA is putting out these days/kk

Desert Storm is an essential show in every Elvis collectors collection (is that right, sounds weird). And I guess RCA/BMG will never, ever release it! ;)
I took a look at your "great" sound list, Albert. Very nice...
1969 Here I Go Again (I agree, it's a little better than Opening Night)
1970 True Love Travels (I understand your choice, because on import they don't get any better than this, until now, and though it's not a complete show, it does give you the feel of one)
1971 Agreed, Lean Mean and Kickin Butt is slightly better soundwise than Power Of Zhazam.
1972 The Greensboro Concert
1973 Don't Think Twice
1974 Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind (great sound!)
1975 Deep Down South & Let Me Take You Home
1976 Holding Back The Years & My It's Been A Long Long Time
1977 Coming On Strong
Reading back this list is almost the same as the one I did earlier.
Your list Albert is a fine list as well. It's hard to choose though, because most of those soundboards sound just fine!
