|Location:||Burbank - California , Las Vegas - Nevada|
|Date:||June ?? - 1968 / 14 - 17 February - 1972|
|Note:||Tracks 1 -11 recorded 1968 at the Burbank Studios,
Tracks 12 - 18 recorded live in Las Vegas, February 14 - 17 - 1972
|Recorded on a personal tape recorder in the dressing room of the infamous Burbank , Ca studio. Joe Esposito owns another tape recorded in the same fashion from a different date , and BMG has released some songs from this date. |
First released on the vinyl release "Elvis Rocks And The Girls Roll" , to date, this is the only cd release to have this material in it's entirety. It is unknown if more material from this rehearsal session exist from the same master tape.
Elvis is very relaxed in this environment , quickly going through songs that were to have been included in the televised special. Several of the Memphis Mafia are in attendance , helping add a "loose" environment for Elvis to experiment in.
Tracks 17 -23 have been released on numerous bootleg releases since the 1980's - these soundboard songs were to have been released on a RCA album titled "Standing Room Only" in 1972 , but the announcement of Elvis playing Madison Square Garden in June quickly killed that pending release.
The front cover is taken from Elvis' acceptance speech at the Jaycees "Outstanding Young Men Of America" award ceremony , which is from 1971 - kind of misleading , since the speech is not on the disc !
