The FTD team did an excellent job with releasing these two fine concerts
although both are well-known on the grey market for many years now. I would even
rate the March 22, 1975 MS as the best one from this fantastic Las Vegas season.
Elvis and band were in high spirits and the sparkle on stage also infected the audience. We have an appealing song line-up with interesting new songs and some of his older hits. A good and varied program with something for everybody and even a rarity is included: "You're The Reason I'm Living" which he only did here and never again,
The other concert from April 1, 1975 DS is a fine addition and gives an overview of how the shows were back then: Solid and straight entertainment. Not more and not less.
The bonus songs are also very well chosen and round up another fine concert double disc set by the FTD collectors label. (ciscoking)
