Despite all of the television appearances he made which were filmed in New York City (The Ed Sullivan Show, The Steve Allen Sow, Stage Show), Elvis Presley came to New York City only once in his career for a live concert performance. lt was an eagerly awaited event. lt was a historic occasion.

lt all began at 4:00 pm on June 9, 1972, when Presley, in a blue suit in the Mercury Ballroom of the New York Hilton, held a thenrare press conference. One of the members of the press asked why he had started making concert appearances again. "I missed it," he answered. "I missed the closeness of a live audience."

Over the next three days, he had the opportunity to make up for lost time and make history at the same time when he gave four sold-out performances at Madison Square Garden (8:30 pm on the 9th and llth; 2:30 and 8:30 pm on the 10th). He was the first performer ever to do so. 80,000 Fans attended the shows, which grossed $730,000; tickets were $5, $7.50 and $10.

Although RCA Records recorded both shows on the 10th, it is the evening performance that is included on this album.

It was an event. It was standing room only. It is understandable, and now it's captured in the brilliance of digital sound. (from the liner notes)
