Fantastic video Albert!!!! thanks for sharing this with us! And what a voice this man has!! awesome! I'm proud to be a Elvis fan after seeing this video!
As a small present to all the great members of TCB-World.com, I have posted a clip (good quality) of the amazing live version of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'.
Besides it's one of the best versions I have ever heard, this one is from his last concert. If you haven't seen it yet, hurry and download it. I will delete it once it has been downloaded 100 times.
Bridge Over Trouble Water (9,7 mb) (best use 'save target as')
Here are some pictures from that last concert (visit www.Kennyelvis.net for even more great ones):
I'm in the process of downloading this right now, but I want to go ahead and thank you for it, as I know how good it is. I haven't watched it in a while though.
I love to see reactions like Patrick's because it affirms my belief that Elvis really went out with a bang. I love this show from beginning to end. It's a shame CBS and RCA didn't record it.
I hope everyone else enjoys it just as much.
...you won't forget me when I go.
One thing that really struck me when I first saw it, was how wild the crowd was. Right after Also Sprach Zarathustra goes into the drumruffle from Ronnie Tutt, the crowd goes nuts..... And then, after quite some time, out of nowhere comes Elvis..... the crowd explodes! Elvis walks a bit over stage, takes notice of the crowd, walks some more... and then starts "I say SEE...See See Rider.." and again the crowd goes bzurk....
It's wonderfull to see that our man really showed who's the King on his very last concert. It would have been such a shame when we -the fans- would have known that his last concert would be one of his worse. Fortunately this wasn't the case.
I can't help but wondering how much better his image might have been if Cincinnatti/Indianapolis would have been recorded by CBS instead of Omaha/Rapid City.....
Thanks albert for that video.
but i all ready have this one on vcd.
not a bad show.
and it is very sad that this one was his very last show.
Long Live Vinyl. :worthy:
One way i love to look at his last concert like this:
Elvis knew he was in a bad shape,he wasnt stupid.It must have really hurt elvis that being once the sex symbol was not looking very healthy.Yet he had the love for every single fan to not disapoint them,he plucked up enough courage to carry on to the end.
I sure respect elvis for doing that as it must of been hard on him ,but that goes to prove just how much of a strong willed guy he was.The '77 era in elvis' life is looked upon with dissgust by some and with sadness by others, i love to think of it as a tribute to us from elvis.He always wanted to make his fans pleased
Next time you play the '77 cd or watch the '77 footage,think how much courage it took for elvis to not let down his fans and im sure it will give some a new out look on the whole '77 era :worthy: .
BTW albert thanks for the footage,this goes to prove what a powerful voice he had in the later days
Great video Albert, thanks for the pictures Kenny. I've read a lot of positive reviews of his last concert, one review where they said that at the end of the concert "he didn't want to leave the stage, shaking hands with everybody for a long time". Nobody should ever question the heart and courage of EP nor his love for us fans.
Thanks for the video albert.
The audio is much better not allike the CD.
from where is this audio?
And doe you have de VCD or the DVD?
Anyway thanks for sharing Albert :worthy:
The source is VCD. I don't know what the audio source is used for the overdubbing. It's so much better than the (already great) 'Adios, The Final Performance' CD.
I wouldn't mind if FTD released the CD in this quality. In fact, it would be one of my favourite CD's

Same goes for the concert a few days earlier in Cincinatti. That one has also amazing soundquality. The sound really match the sound of a real live concert: full, dynamic, boosted and lots of audience
"Right after Also Sprach Zarathustra goes into the drumruffle from Ronnie Tutt"
Ronnie did not play this show Albert, it was Larrie Londin
Greate video Albert :worthy: :worthy: :worthy:

does anybody know wath the best adio is on this CD's???
Adios have first class sound Steve
I can't answer your question, Steve, but to add to it: how does The Last Show (I have a cassette recording of this one, and I think it's really good) compare to Adios? I am pretty sure that The Last Farewell is an inferior recording, but I'm not certain of that.
Also, as has been said, the sound on the VCD is awesome, but it is not complete.
...you won't forget me when I go.
thanks for the adviece!!!!
The last farewell was the first release of the 2 lp set ,later was transferred on to cd in poor quality with schratches and all, Adios the final performance was taken from the source tape used for the LP set..So this is the one to pick...as I said Adios,my friend
