Concert:

This opening show belongs to the better ones of this tour. Elvis is committed and tries hard to deliver an entertaining concert. Although not all was gold I would give this one a pass.
Highlights for me: You Gave Me A Mountain, It's Now Or Never, How Great Thou Art and Hurt. The sound is really fine. (Ciscoking)

Too Late For Goodbyes - Elvis Presley Bootleg CD



Announcement:
Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' May ’77 tour. The Knoxville, May 20th, 1977 tour opening show is previously unreleased.
This recording was taken directly from a recently found original audience-recorded mastertape of excellent sound quality!
This historic concert was never before available in decent sound… until now!

The Largo, May 22nd, 1977 show was first released by JR Productions (”ELVIS… TONIGHT 8:30 PM“, 1994). 22 years have passed, and it is the right time for a proper re-release. We dug up the original cassette and restored it from scratch. Knoxville is a solid tour opening concert. ”And I Love You So” and ”Hurt” are performed really well but one highlight stands out, an amazing performance of „How Great Thou Art“.
Largo was affected by sound problems and Elvis changed the microphone several times. Nevertheless he was in a very good mood, and he gave decent performances of songs like ”Fairytale”, ”Funny How Time Slips Away” and ”My Way”.

As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes rare photos taken in Knoxville and Largo and a newspaper review of the May 22nd, Largo concert.
It’s new STRAIGHT ARROW so you know what to expect!
