    I agree with you Jak, especially about the song list. You mention the level of the shows from 69 to 72, that's the point I was making earlier. I saw several shows a year, every year, and they became less and less physical as time went on. There is a YT video posted earlier about Steamroller Blues in 74. I don't see any sensational movement in the video...just Elvis kind of dancing around to the slow rhythmic beat. Go back to 1970..take a look at Patch It Up or Suspicious Minds. Now that's physical. It was always a discussion on the way home from seeing him, Vegas or concert show, that he was less and less physical every time.
    As for a set-list...I love the one from 08/06/1973

    Agreed...yes, he should have brought the house down. I wonder why the decision was made to keep it so middle-of-the-road. I'm sure people will think I'm nuts, but, songs such as I'll Remember You and It's Over were far from my favorites.

    Ahh what a great import we have here from Madison didn't they do a superb job on upgrading the sound from the previous release of the show The Power Of Zazham released on the Captain Marvel JR Records.

    Think that is going to be my next show to listen too. Right now got Tenessee Starlight from Febuary 19th 1977 playing through the headphones, man one of the best ever versions of My Way I've heard!

    I was 11 Rossie, and my papa had just passed on and left my grandma living alone. So every day when i wasn't at school i would stay with her and keep her company like during summer breaks and on the weekends. One day we were talking about her life and my papa's and she told me how he was in memphis around the time elvis died and she had this really old newspaper the Commercail appeal one that reads in big letters Death Captures Crown Of Rock N Roll. i got to looking at it and it had some nice photos of elvis from july 5th 1976 in memphis his last concert there and i thought it was unreal how he changed so much. Then she told me she had this tape my papa had taped back in 2000 on tcm titled elvis that's the way it is special edition. I liked it alot, then i went home and my mom had these two really old rca cd's titled elvis presley the top ten hits and i remember everyday after school i would come home lay down and listen to those cds over and over. i remember really getting bummed out because on the last track which was burning love the cd started skipping and i heard the first about 10 seconds of it and it would stop. And after that I recall buying my first cds at walmart As Recorded at MSG and Aloha from Hawaii and one called Burning Love with the red disc. the stuff on there got me hooked for life and ever since then ive been a fan. I went through about a year or so kind of not doing anything containing elvis like bieng on forums collecting, etc but now im back harder than ever and its here to stay!

    Since you suggested it, thats the concert I played for tonight..must say it is a pretty darn good show. After the band intro's like i said before he seemed more focused and not messing around. Love Jame's guitar sound on Proud Mary during the intro to the song. Bad to the bone!
