* Long Tall Sally / Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On / Your Mama Don't Dance / Flip Flop And Fly / Hound Dog

** We have a guest in the audience, ladies and gentleman. One of the most distinguished actors of all time. He's made some of the greatest classic films ever made.
I knew him from the Paramount Studios when he made "The Ten Commandments" and "Ben Hur"...Charlton Heston!
I used to kid him a lot. We were both working at Paramount, when he was doing "The Ten Commandments" and one day it was raining. I said "Moses, make it stop raining!"

During "Fever" Elvis says in a shrill voice after the line "I light up when you call my name" "Elvis!" In addition, towards the end of the song he changes the lyrics to "cats were born to give you fever, be it Siamese or alley cats!" And then Elvis states: "That song is a lot of fun to do, because I can almost get my breakfast down!" He would like to suggest that he go out of bed shortly before this dinner show ...

At "Suspicious Minds" Elvis changes the text once again: "Let's donít let a black suit die, cause honey, you know how I hate this song!"

Before "I Can't Stop Loving You" Elvis asks: "You know what I canít do?"
and answers this question himself funny with: "Sing and drink water at the same time!"

Before "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" Elvis says "I'd like to do a song for my little daughter!"


At Can't Help Falling In Love Elvis sings alternatively "Wise men say when it's time to go!"

Elvis Rocks The Hilton - From The Boothtapes Vol. 10 - Elvis Presley Bootleg CD
3 panel digipak

From the press release: Between 2007 and 2016 Straight Arrow has released 20 of the so called sound booth recorded concerts. Starting with "Kicking and Rolling" in 2007, "Faded Love" and "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" in 2010, we decided to create a miniseries called "From the booth tapes." From 2013 to 2016 we have released 9 volumes, and now the right time has arrived to introduce the volume 10. The August 20th , 1973 Midnight show sound booth recording was first released by the legendary "Fort Baxter" label on "A Profile - The King On Stage Vol. 1" box set in 1995, since then it has been re-released several times but never from the original source and totally complete - until now! The pitch was incorrect on all previous individual releases of this show.

The August 31st, Dinner and September 2nd 1973, Midnight shows were released (by our own sub-label called "Vegas Strip") in 2008 on "Getting Down The Business" & "High Spirit In Vegas" CDs. The sound of these CDs was speed-corrected by one of our colleagues back then, but unfortunately, the pitch was still not right. For our final release all 3 shows came directly from the RCA tape duplications chromdioxide compact cassettes. You can see the reproductions of individual cassettes on the CD artwork. Please note that the August 31st , Dinner show was mislabeled on the cassette as the August 30th Dinner show. All 3 shows were meticulously pitch-corrected by a professional musician. We were able to edit the missing parts of August 31st Dinner and September 2nd Midnight shows, using another source recorded by our dear friend from the UK.

These tapes were never in circulation and they are of an excellent quality. We have repaired the incomplete "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "How Great Thou Art" from the August 31st, 1973 Dinner show to make it complete. As usual, this release is presented in a deluxe triple digipack with a collection of images taken on and off the stage during Elvis' 1973 Las Vegas Summer season. If you have enjoyed our previous "From the booth tapes" releases, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local audio vendor for trials! The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows and for improved versions of already released recordings. If you have such tapes, even damaged or broken, do not hesitate to contact us through your local vendor.
