I just love this show (like almost any other from these May/June/July '75 tours). The shows from America's Own volume 1 and 2 (the evening show of the same day) has recently been re-released on the Ampex label.
Here are some more pictures of this show:
And some more from this show:
I really agree, great show indeed.As most shows were in June and July 1975.
But I do prefer The evening show, with that stunning Live version of You'll Never Walk Alone.
For those of you that are still unfamiliar with this amazing version, I have attached it:
I, myself, have always considered this one of Elvis' best shows of the 70's, because here you see him changing the song lineup by performing some rarity's, and because his energy level is a the maximum. If only a soundboard of this show was available for us - aweeee! :D
This was one of the very first bootleg LP's that i owned...can't remember what year it was now :blink: but i remember playing it for the first time to this day.
As Big Boss said...if only there was a sounboard recording :hmm:
If look at the pics that are shown here, he almost looks like the Elvis from the 50's! his sideburns are trimmed he looks healthy and happy and that's what you can hear in this show also, it's a fantastic show, only minor point: it's a audience recording..i don't think there is soundboard recording of this show, it would have seen daylight by now.. :angry: of the concerts they recorded..they really missed a few good ones..
I really wish a soundboard exist of this show as this one is my favorite from the two shows performed that day..Burning love is killer and it is one of his best shows from the 70's imo !!
