Here’s Audiophile's 3rd release "The Las Vegas Years Volume 2" subtitled "Early Morning Rain". This CD is planned for late June release.
When Elvis' August Las Vegas engagement in 1975 was cut short by illness - Elvis returned in December to Las Vegas after a 3 month break from performing, being energetic and vocally in very good form. This show contains something unique - Sweet Inspirations’ drummer, Jerome Monroe was on the drums as Ronnie Tutt was unavailable due to the birth of one of his children. Elvis was in great spirits this night and gave it all to his audience, especially with some newer material “And I Love You So”, “Softly As I Leave You”, “America The Beautiful” and a complete rare version of “Early Morning Rain”. Also Elvis had a little boy from the audience come on stage to dance while Elvis sings "Hound Dog".
This CD also contains four bonus tracks and one of them is the last full live version of “My Boy” that Elvis ever performed live on stage. This new CD will come with an 8-page booklet, containing photos from December 1975 Las Vegas Engagement. The audio was cleaned and fully restored using professional equipment to achieve best possible result.
|Sound Sample:||I'll Remember You
|Concert:||The sound of this audience recording is really good and so is the show. Elvis has a strong song line-up and he sings songs like America, My Boy or I'll Remember You with passion. Also Trying To Get To You gets the treatment it deserves. Back in the 50`s we are ! The bonus songs are also well chosen with Just Pretend being another highlight.(Ciscoking)|
