    Well that's strange - I had the impression that this is an ablum.. err album with a lot of songs.. And it's not just that - the combination seems to be very versatile; with some rarities as well.. Some aren't thát rare (as far as the 'Ding en Sich' is concerned), but rather 'unusual' for Elvis at that particular time, making comparisons even more interesting. Unless I'm very much mistaken I'd like to listen to this one.

    Elvis Live in Concert: Southern Nights
    Tomorrow 8:00 pm ET

    Join us for the world premiere of the newest live concert FTD release Southern Nights, just released! Ernst Jorgensen joined TY this past week, live in the Elvis Radio Graceland Studio on Elvis Presley Boulevard in Memphis, and explained that this soundboard compilation from the 1975 Spring Tours is the "companion" set to Dixieland Rocks. The performance shows just how vast Elvis' repertoire was at that time. The concert contains 25 songs, and 19 of the songs were not featured on Dixieland Rocks. As always, your Elvis Radio expert musicologist, Doc Walker will be your Elvis Live In Concert (ELIC) host for this international world premiere.

    Rebroadcasts: Sat., Jan. 21st @ 12 am ET & Sun., Jan. 22nd @ 10 pm ET.
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    It's a very interesting cd with a lot of unusual songs on it. Because the songs are chosen by Elvis at the moment, he really delivers and sings great versions. A nice performance is "That's Alright" when he sings "...son, that girl you're foolin', she ain't no good to screw...".

    The first date that you did sonny is misdated. Elvis wasn't in Atlanta on April 24, 1975. He was in Macon.

    Personally, I thought SOUTHERN NIGHTS was a very good CD with some fine performances on it, including rare 1975 performances of YOU GAVE ME A MOUNTAIN, HELP ME, I'M LEAVIN', a rockin' version of BLUE SUEDE SHOES, and a very cool (albeit short) rendition of TROUBLE!!

    The only downside for me is the varying degrees of sound quality on the CD, but considering the tracks were recorded at different shows during the spring '75 tour, this was to be expected!!

    All in all, I thought SOUTHERN NIGHTS was a great look at some of the highlights of Elvis' spring tours of 1975. Perhaps this CD (along with SPRING TOURS '77) will set the stage for more of these type of "tour compilation" CD's from the FTD label, where complete shows might not be available, but some great individual performances exist on tape?? Personally, while I enjoy listening to complete shows, I think these type of "highlight" CD's are very enjoyable to listen to, and really give listeners a good feel for how Elvis' performances were during a particular tour, season, etc.

    I personally enjoy this cd very much, mainly because it contains some recordings made right here in my backyard (Atlanta) , but mainly because all of the versions are strong and he's in wonderful vocal form.
