Lake Tahoe - season 3 (22 shows)
May 16th - 27th (2 cancelled)
With his 10th tour ended only 3 days before the start of Elvis 3rd Lake Tahoe season, you can imagine that this was not the time to see Elvis at his fittest. The fact that Elvis had cancelled 2 shows might have been a proof of this.
But listening to this CD doesn't show an Elvis who was doing his 18th show of this engagement. Right from the start Elvis showed the audience that he had pleasure in performing that night. The audience was clearly excited, just like Elvis.
Songs like "Trying To Get To You" (with Elvis singing 'I was steaking all the way' much to the audience' pleasure) and "Big Boss Man" really must have fired up Elvis and the audience. Although the setlist is quite nice, Elvis must have felt differently, because the next Vegas seasons Elvis would open with a completely renewed setlist.
The sound is fantastic! Although it can't compare with CD's like "The Aloha From Hawaii", "Close Up disc 4" or "And Afternoon In The Garden", this Cd is a real treat to listen to. It has a nice warm, boosted live sound.
