    Nevada Nights...

    Do any of you own this FTD CD? I can't seem to find a review of it!

    Most of the time Amazon U.K. has customer reviews for the FTD's

    I looked on Amazon but didn't see any. I also could not understand why they were asking $59.95 either!

    Re: Nevada Nights...

    I'll give you a review right now:
    Overall, Elvis gives a strong performance, especially on the first disk.
    Disk 1-
    Big Boss Man- Different opening song, and very well-performed
    Proud Mary- having been almost two years since it was last performed, ELvis still can rock it out. After the song, he jokingly introduces himself as the NBC Peacock, but stumbles and says "I practiced that all evening and goofed it."
    Down In The Alley- The only live performance of this song, and very energetic.
    Good Time Charlie's Got THe Blues- ANother one-time-only performance, not original recording good, but still worth listening to. After the song, Elvis says, "I've done a lot of things in my life, but..." Before launching into
    Never Been To Spain- The final performance of this song, and as great as ever.
    It's Midnight- Great song, great version.
    If You Talk In Your SLeep- At the end, ELvis adds "That's not about me, I didn't write that, I don't do that... Charlie wrote it.. *laughs*. No, a friend of mine, Red West wrote it.."
    I'm Leavin' Great version of an underrated song.
    Let Me Be There- Strong, energetic,,and I love how stops to thank the audience before launching into the reprise.
    Softly As I Leave You- Great version of a touching, emotional song
    If You Love Me- Just as good as let me be there
    Love Me Tender- Typical 70s version
    Polk Salad Annie- Love how the orchestra is more involved in this version, missing the awesome Jerry Shieff bass solo, and almost exhaustingly long.
    Promised Land- Great version, though the original recording is better
    My Baby Left Me- Probably the best live version of the song
    Bridge Over Troubled Water- What can I say? Absolutely beautiful, sincere, heartfelt, yet powerful.
    Fever- Unusually serious, until the end, when he goes overboard.. watch it! WATCH IT! SIt Down Sit DOwn... FEVER!!!!
    Hound Dog- Typical version
    Can't Help Falling In Love- Too bad it is cut short.

    Highlights of disk two-
    Fever- Funnier version... cats were born to give chicks fever, be it jumpsuits or leather suede...
    Dialogue- Really fnny, as Elvis talks abou this life with Lisa Marie.
    I'm Leavin'- He introduces the song by saying, "it's not the title of the song, I'm just getting the hell out of here"
    First Time Ever I Saw Your Face- Great version, too bad he cut the performance short.

    Good decision, Roseanne. I bought mine last month, I had heard it on Jay Gordon's Elvis Only just before it was released - & then I couldn't find it at ShopElvis! It's availabe now though. I love mine. I think reviews were in the news section, & elvispresleytheking did a great job, too.


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    I noticed that, too. I also bought the I Believe 4CD set, that was excellent, IMO! Sam's Warehouse had it for under $30

    THis is where I actually helped a Bestbuy worker find it, because I knew where it was and he thought it was a single CD!
    Thanks for your praise on the review, by the way.

    He surely didn't get proper recognition for such a versatile and refreshing set-list!
