    The original source tape is damaged.
    We have chosen to keep track 6 & 7 on this release for historical reasons in spite of the damage. However “Hound Dog”, performed between “Hurt” and “Unchained Melody” was
    beyond any element of repair and has consequently been left out.

    Yes, on the original Fort Baxter import release A HOT WINTER NIGHT IN DALLAS, there is a fade out in the middle of YOU GAVE ME A MOUNTAIN and it fades back in around the middle of JAILHOUSE ROCK. My guess is that the FTD CD of the Dallas show will be from the same source tape as the Fort Baxter release, as the Fort Baxter CD also omitted HOUND DOG.

    I have to say that it is a nice surprise to see the Tahoe '74 show being released along with the '76 shows. And according to the press releases, both releases will contain a booklet which will also be a nice addition as well.

    Thanks Mike for the additional information.

    It's a good thing I ordered So High..got it around two months ago, and listened to it fully yesterday, what a true gem.

    Cool to see the release date of these new FTD's will be May 10th, 'tis five days before my 20th birthday, have an idea already of what I want

    Also a little additional information, the cover shot to High Sierra , it is I'm almost positive from the October 1974 Lake Tahoe Engagement.

    Really? That's interesting if you're right...I wonder if that means there aren't any pictures from the May Tahoe engagement???

    Yeah Mike I'm almost positive, Kenny posted it on the Kings Court months ago, I remember it.

    Perhaps FTD or Ernst borrowed it from him...not sure.

    I can't wait for the TAHOE release – an utterly fascinating period of the King's concert years!

    By all accounts Elvis enjoyed his shows at Lake Tahoe,I'm hoping for a terrific show.

    Re: NEW FTD RELEASES!!!

    So, all of Elvis' shows were recorded? Something like the MSG shows? I ask this question because I often see: "Elvis on this place, 1976", "Elvis on ... 1974". Just curious.

    Some of Elvis's concernts were recorded by fans, or by pros. Not all were recorded though.

    TY Tommy! That made me think something. It would be so nice to have many 50s shows on tape. Imagine them on the movies, yay!

    Yes, it's a shame a lot of 50's stuff has no sound.

    I've heard some of the shows from his May '74 Tahoe shows that have been around on the import circuit, and they are some great shows, so hopefully FTD has picked a great one for this release!
