Elvis On Tour (re-issue)
|Title:||Elvis On Tour (re-issue)|
|Recording Type:||Live Recordings / Rehearsal|
* Live recordings
|Notes:||This soundtrack is one of the most widely bootlegged titles of all time. Originally released in the 1980's , the superior material made it an easy and appealing target for bootleggers. Several versions of the Elvis On Tour soundtrack have been released , both on vinyl and compact disc. |
This 1998 release has the best fidelity due to using MGM's remastered Japanese laser disc release !
Too many outstanding versions of songs on this release - GET THIS DISC ! And buy the VHS too - watching Elvis watch the Stamps quartet sing "Sweet Sweet Spirit" will bring tears to your eyes. A truly beautiful moment watching Elvis appreciate gospel music by the best gospel quartet in the business.
There are some odd sound quality defects on this disc , there are some dropouts and apparent scratches (probably on the original disc). These defects take away from the magnificence of this cd release - the material used for the film deserves the finest fidelity possible.
All live material used on "Elvis On Tour" was taken from April 1972 shows, studio material came from the March 1972 sessions.
