and without a doubt, this double set presents Elvis still at his best. After
shedding some extra weight the man is ready to face his first tour of 1974.
March 1974 started with two great shows in Tulsa and then departed to

large distant adoring crowd without the orchestra.

At the same time, we are glad to include as a bonus CD an unreleased
Ambiance Recording of the previous day in Tulsa. The sound is decent: if you
want to live the atmosphere of an Elvis concert in 2021 this is the right
tape. We can guarantee that Elvis was greeted with incredible enthusiasm;
the popularity in the live scene in the middle of 1974 is at its maximum
The tour presents Elvis still at the top of his possibility, despite He is
not anymore the rocker of 1970. He still looks great in his impressive
jumpsuits and he delivers great shows with a great version of his classic
hits adding to the repertoire the religious new Help me and reaching the top
of the classic anthem American Trilogy and the sacred How Great Thou Art.

very good concert from a very good tour. The crowd went nuts as soon as
Elvis hit the stage. A move with his little finger almost caused riots
among the fans and the King knew it.

I Can't Stop Loving You, Let Me Be There and more.
