    Well, that's a tough job. My Elvis mood swings from studio to soundtrack to live. Since I'm currently in the "live Elvis' mode, these are my two top-lists:

    Import CD's
    • Opening Night ('72)
    • Let Me Take You Home ('75)
    • We'll Make You Happy ('75)
    • Holding Back The Years ('76)
    • Moody Blue And Other Great Performances ('77)
    • Adios, The Final Perormance ('77)
    • It's a Matter Of Time ('73)
    • Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind ('74)
    FTD CD's
    • Spring Tours ('77)
    • Dragonheart ('74)
    • Recorded Live On Stage in Memphis ('74)
    • Takin' Tahoe Taonight ('73)
    • One Night In Vegas ('70)
    Of course there are CD's with better shows, but I still prefer to listen to Cd's with a bit decent soundquality. Therefor I don't listen much to most of the audience recordings

    Sweet child in time
    you?ll see the line
    line that?s drawn between
    good and bad
    see the blind man
    shooting at the world
    bullets flying taking toll
    If you?ve been a bad
    oh Lord I bet you have
    and you?ve not been hit
    by flying led
    you?d better close your eyes
    you?d better bow your head and
    wait for the ricochet

    GREAT QUESTION CHAD!!

    Unfortunately, there are too many great bootlegs out there for me to narrow my list down to just 5!!

    But I can give you my Top 5 favorite FTD releases:

    SPRING TOURS '77
    THE JUNGLE ROOM SESSIONS
    6363 SUNSET
    TAKIN' TAHOE TONIGHT
    SILVER SCREEN STEREO


    It's hard to narrow down the FTD list, because there are so many great ones! But this is my current list of favorites!

    TCB!
