As everybody knows SR concentrates it's work on early 70's live period of Elvis'
activity, trying to produce always unreleased shows with Elvis at the top of his
possibilities. With the new release, we are proud to present the complete show

is an extension of the Vegas February season with the only inclusion of For The
good times and Burning in love coming for his recording March sessions . The man
looks pale in front the cameras and no in his best looking although in terrific
shape, however in no way is possible to compare him with previous November 1971
Talking about the show , the show is solid and rough no too long considering a
tour concert, we have 53 minutes only, but Elvis worked hard performing 18
songs, including his new single “An American Trilogy.” together his classic best
repertoire of Vegas.. Talking of highlight of the show, we can agree with the
Florida-Times review, the physical performance of Suspicious minds is surely the
best moment of the show…...
This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound
quality is very good considering the early Tour. The sound was restored in
matter to remove the background noise and preserving Elvis’ voice and trying to
achieve best possible results. We have spent hours in the studio over the
digital restoration of the sound, to give you the chance to hear it with
