Notes:

Press note (sic):
Our previous release 'Solid As Rock' received a great deal of acclaim from the fans, who praised the quality of Elvis' performance as well as the good audio. Some even stated that we had 'undersold' this release, and that the sound-quality of the recording is better than what was stated in our publicity. We at Straight Arrow believe that self-praise is no praise at all; we prefer to let our product speak for itself, which is also why we have built up a loyal following over the years. We simply deliver the goods, no hype necessary. The Straight Arrow team is always looking for rare, unknown or seemingly lost recordings. Once again, the labels researchers were successful - BOTH Aug. 29, 1971 shows are completely new, even for die-hard Elvis fans. They have never been in circulation - in any form! Unfortunately, the Aug. 29, 1971 M/S was not recorded in its entirety. The cassette recorder was stopped - perhaps accidentally - during ĄLove Me Tenderď and the last couple of songs are missing.

It is with pleasure that we can now offer you more recordings from 1971. This fine Las Vegas season is still poorly documented, so we know that many fans will be delighted with this release. Elvis delivers the goods with two no-nonsense shows, from an engagement that marks the end of an era. From '69 until this point, Elvis had created so much magic with his shows at the International. Not long after this engagement, the International was sold to the Hilton group. The hotel was renamed, and, oddly enough, some of the magic that was synonymous with Elvis at the International disappeared. From this point onwards, his performances in Vegas became very much a case of 'hit and miss'. Let's go back and touch the past, put the CD in the player and let's enjoy one more dose of the original magic of Elvis at the International.

This release is presented in a de-luxe digipack, filled with rare images taken at the Las Vegas International hotel in August, 1971.

 

Sound Samples: Sweet Caroline (Dinner Show)

It's Impossible (Midnight Show)
Concert:

Both concerts are completely new and present the King in top condition. He doesn't talk too much, but focuses fully on the music. Therefore we have two tight shows with great renditions of many songs like Thatís All Right, Polk Salad Annie, Suspicious Minds, Sweet Caroline or Johnny B. Goode. But please choose your own highlight. (Ciscoking)
