Press note (December 2016)|
Making its year-end debut is a brand new and exciting, unreleased, Elvis show on the brand new Ragdoll label! For the label's maiden outing, the folks at Ragdoll have chosen the Las Vegas midnight show of August 27, 1974.
Simply titled, "12:00 am", the newly re-mastered recording finds Elvis in superb form and in fine spirits. From discussing Karate and his relationship with his fans to delivering powerful and rockin' versions of "It's Midnight", "Mountain", "Trilogy, "Big Boss Man" and "If You Talk In Your Sleep" respectively, Elvis is committed to please. The introduction of Red West is most unique with Elvis rattling off the titles of West's song compositions! Ragdoll's debut is a 2-cd set comprising the show in its entirety.
Handsomely packaged to include a 8-page booklet featuring rare photos to compliment the sonic clarity, Ragdoll promises a bright future!
Excellent and varied concert. Elvis and band are in high spirits and we get all
what makes good stage entertainment. |
Perfect mixture of his older songs like Big Boss Man, the beautiful Hawaiian Wedding Song or It's Now Or Never and more recent material like It's Midnight, If You love Me Let Me Know or Let Me Be There.
I like this show. (Ciscoking)
