Kentucky Rain - Elvis Presley Bootleg CD

Press note:
The February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show is a previously unreleased concert, taken directly from an original audience recorded master tape.
This concert was never available in good sound quality thus far (note: in 2007, the "SR" label released a so-called February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show on the "Rock In Black" double CD, but this show was wrongly dated and in fact it was the February 23rd, 1970 Dinner show!)

The February 22nd, 1970 Midnight show recording is slightly incomplete, missing the last song "Can't Help Falling In Love", so we have included this song in the same good sound, as taken from the February 20th, 1970 Dinner show, to make the concert "complete" for listeners' comfort.
As usual, this release is presented in a deluxe 6-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, February 1970 and a press review.
 

Sound Samples: Kentucky Rain

Concert:

A welcome addition to any collection of audience recordings. The old cd-r can go to the bin since this release is also much better sounding and almost complete.
The concert is strong and Elvis is very focused without missing some fun with his audience.
In addition we have an excellent set list with many highlights like: Long Tall Sally, Kentucky Rain, Let It Be Me, Polk Salad Annie or Suspicious Minds. Highly recommendable ! (Ciscoking)
