Notes: Announcement:
Following the remarkable success of our earlier 3CD set "On A Winning Streak", Straight Arrow is pleased to announce another 3CD collection featuring three more unreleased shows from the Summer 1973 engagement in excellent quality audience recorded audio.

The three shows are all strong shows, with Elvis vocally strong (much more than in February '73) and delivering a very varied selection of songs at each of the shows. It's clear that he is in his element here, as his entertaining interaction with the audience and his knock-out vocal performances amply demonstrate. The presence of his daughter Lisa Marie inspires Elvis to give his best. These shows are a delight, and especially in this clear vibrant audience recorded audio that gives you a true "you are there" feel, they make for captivating listening. The August 28, 1973 D/S and August 29, 1973 D/S and M/S are previously unreleased. A few highlights from the (previously released) August 28, 1973 M/S were added.

All 3 shows are taken from 1st generation copies of original audience recorded cassettes, made back in the 70s by English super-fan Rex Martin. Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself! If you enjoyed the "On A Winning Streak" set, then you will definitely not be disappointed by its sequel, "The King Holds Court"!

 

Sound Sample: Fever (CD 1: August 28, 1973, Dinner Show)


My Boy (CD 2: August 29, 1973, Dinner Show)


Trouble (CD 3. August 29, 1973, Midnight Show)

 
Concert: Solid and typical shows from this period with appealing set lists. The fact that Lisa was there surely set some more forces free.  Highlights are songs like What Now My Love, Steamroller Blues, An American Trilogy and of course the lovely The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. For all jumpsuit junkies a worthwhile addition to the collection. (Ciscoking)
