For the first time released on silver disc,
It’s All About Elvis! A week into his March-April engagement at the Las Vegas
Hilton, Elvis continued to offer generally dynamic performances, filled with
good humour and a sense of fun. A good deal of the set from the midnight show on
March 26, 1975 incorporated songs from his sessions at RCA Hollywood from
earlier that month, all of which would appear on the Elvis Today album.
Three-quarters of his two most recent singles received an airing as well, with
‘Promised Land’ sounding frisky indeed. The often-lengthy, angry and
too-revealing monologues from the previous summer in Las Vegas were now gone.
On this set is a superb-quality off-line recording of the entire show, and it’s
a delight. There are commendable performances of 'I’ll Remember You’ (with a
quick one-liner of Dionne Warwick’s 1967 hit ‘Alfie’ at the start), 'It's
Midnight' (with a funny false start), 'Big Boss Man', ‘And I Love You So', 'Burning
Love' and his current top-twenty RCA single, the dramatic 'My Boy.’ Elvis even
throws in the seldomly performed ‘Until It’s Time For You To Go.’ Wednesday’s
child might have been full of woe, but Wednesday night’s gig at the Hilton is
full of go-go-go!
As fans have come to expect, this recording is of very good quality, sourced
from an early generation copy of the original cassette. It was recorded by the
same fan who taped shows used for our previous release, "AMORE, ELVIS". The
digipak contains excellent liner notes and is filled with photos from the
March-April 1975 engagement. As usual, these recordings have been carefully
engineered to be presented in the best possible sound. If you have enjoyed
"AMORE ELVIS", you will love "WEDNESDAY NIGHT ROLL OVER"! That’s a guarantee,
