Press note:
Audionics will release something special. Called „ELVIS: CITY OF ANGELS“ (Audionics 2015-01-2), this release consists of a 120-page hardback book & two CDs, featuring both shows which Elvis performed on May 11th, 1974 at The Forum (Inglewood) in Los Angeles, CA. Audionics is aware that these shows were released before (by the Graceland Records label, 2007 and official Sony/FTD label, 2007). To bring out the ultimate sound quality, Audionics worked with direct transfers of the original mastertapes.

Compared with its previous release, the evening show is vastly superior in sound. It was not taken from the same compact cassette source you have heard on the FTD soundboard release 'Live In L. A.', but comes from an original reel-to-reel soundboard tape transfer! The sound difference is like night & day. The afternoon show has much improved sound too, coming from the original audience recorded mastertape. The sound (although not excellent) is clearer than before and most of disturbing distortion is gone.

In recent years, some younger fans claimed that Elvis' performances in LA were mediocre. Nevertheless, fans who were present always mentioned these were "kick-ass performances". It's worth mentioning that these shows were attended by a few members of the hard-rock band 'Led Zeppelin' as well as by Bill Wyman, the Rolling Stones bass player.

The 120-page book is filled with many brand new photos of great quality (both b/w and colour) and what’s most important, more than 120 images have never before been published anywhere! The accompanying text was written by an infamous author. This special audiovisual set will mark the ultimate release of Elvis Presley's live appearances at the Los Angeles in May ’74. Every second was digitally restored to achieve the best possible result. This is the first-ever Audionics real audio-visual presentation. It’s a special set which deserves a place in any serious Elvis collection!
