    new release: The Hampton Roads Concert

    If what the flyer that we picked up at the Utrecht Record Fair says is true, we?re in for a treat. In a couple of weeks time, the Triangle Label releases a top class CD. ?Hampton Roads? is announced as a perfectly mixed show from April 1972 (the On Tour recordings) and contains, apart from a 40 page booklet with lots of color shots, also a reprint of the 1972 MGM pressbook. Earlier this year, the producers of ?Hampton Roads? released the 5 stars CD ?Greensboro?.

    Interesting news Steve, the Greensboro CD from Triangle sounded very good indeed, wonder how they are going to package this 40 page booklet.

    A sneek peak:






    I've seen samples of the booklet last night and it really is breathtaking. It really is that good. Besides the (fantastic) boxsets of BMG/FTD and the booklet for the 'a Profile - The King On Stage' boxsets, I can't find any Elvis release that has a booklet with more page, more info and more pictures.

    We really are in for a treat

    It's like the old 2LP sleeves: the booklet will go in the left sleeve and the cd in the right sleeve.

    I've allready orded my copy of this soon to be released cd. Looking forward to hear and see this release. I think the art work is great! By judging the preview flyer. I got a mail yesterday from the guy i buy this kind of releases from. And i wanted to upload the preview right a way..but something went wrong and it was uploaded this morning in the news section. So i appologize for that, the news is now twice in that section.

    It looks absolutely wonderful!

    If the sound is as good as The Greensboro Concert, we are in for a treat!

    No, it's not in LP size...

    It's a fold out cover done just like in the good old times of black vinyl

    You can see that, if you look a little bit closer on the pictures...

    This is a sample of the booklet. Although it's great, it's simply nowhere near as great as all the other pages in the booklet.

    Today I listened to a few samples of this soon-to-be-released CD. Although they were mp3, they still gave a fantastic impression of what to expect.

    I can assure everybody that the soundquality is amazing. I have every soundboard that has been released, and this one really is the best sounding. It's crisp and clear.

    "A Big Hunk O' Love" rocked like hell, with "Sweet Sweet Spirit" you can hear all individual voices during this close harmony, Kathy Westmoreland can be clearly heard during "Until It's Time For You To Go".

    The power of this release (besides the amazing artwork and package) is that they instruments can almost be heard individually. It's not a one big mass sound, or with a way too loud pumping bass,but you can hear the hi-hats (?) of the drums, the rhythm guitar, the background vocals, and so on very good. Even the audience is present.

    After seeing samples of the package and artwork and hearing some samples I am really looking forward to this release.

    Mah boy, mah boy!

    I've heard big parts of the CD and have seen all booklet-pages.

    There's nothing on the Import-market nor on the official site that can compare with this up-coming release.

    Great liner-notes, rarely seen pics and more than nicely done artwork added with a fantastic soundquality.

    This will be a classic one.
