Press note:
The AudiRec label will release 'Elvis At The Hilton' a brand new audience recorded double CD Set with the the 2 concerts performed on September 2, 1973, the complete '3 A.M.' Show on disc 1 and the complete Dinner Show on disc 2.

It was the summer of 1973 - 'Labor Day Weekend' brought thousands of visitors to Las Vegas, the 'Entertainment Capital City of the World' and Elvis - again - was the most requested performer people wanted to see in Concert. No wonder the Colonel agreed when being asked to schedule a special '3 A.M. Show' on Sunday morning (Sept. 2) to fulfill the many requests for tickets. Elvis was so popular in Vegas, it is hard to compare with any of todayīs artists. So it is never a fault to say that Elvis was indeed the 'King Of Vegas'. For our first release and with all the technical help we could get from our friends from the 'Straight Arrow' Label we were able to obtain two rare shows, both from September 2, 1973. We were given the opportunity to work with the original tapes, recorded at the showroom of the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel by a very well-known and a hundred percent devoted Elvis-Fan.

Both shows have been recorded with a tape-recorder brought in secretly and have to be called 'typical audience recordings', though clearly ones which are of real good quality for that type of recordings.
 

      
 Sound Sample:  What Now My Love (3 a.m. show)


My Boy (dinner show)
 
      
 Concert:  The dinner show was incomplete released  before on "Top Acts in Vegas Vol.4". See comments there.
The 3 am show debuts on silver disc here. I would rate this one as the better show out of the two. Elvis is in a good mood and we get strong renditions of songs like Steamroller Blues, Release Me, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face or How Great Thou Art. He was also having much fun on stage. The audience surely had one happy hour to enjoy ! (Ciscoking)
