UNCHAINED ELVIS is another classic example of why all fans really need to take the time to listen to some of Elvis' shows from 1977 and decide for themselves about how good Elvis could be during the last year of his life...without immediately judging him based on what EPE wants you to believe about Elvis in his final years.
UNCHAINED ELVIS is an above-average audience recording from Elvis' show in Binghampton, N.Y. on 5/26/77. Elvis is in good spirits throughout the entire show, treating fans in the audience that evening to a high energy show including great renditions of POLK SALAD ANNIE, HURT, AND I LOVE YOU SO, and a rare 1977 performance of WHY ME LORD!
As an added bonus, fans are treated to 3 bonus performances from Elvis' second Binghampton show the following evening --- a great off-the-cuff performance of HEARTBREAK HOTEL and powerful renditions of BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER and UNCHAINED MELODY!!! All in all, very good performances from the undisputed King of Rock N' Roll only weeks before his tragic and untimely passing.
UNCHAINED ELVIS is one import which I feel every fan should try and add to their collection! One listen to this CD will surely convince most fans that, despite his obvious health problems, Elvis was still able to give a fantastic performance during the final months of his lifetime.
