|The sound is
not bad, but Elvis' voice is sometimes very widely in the background.
The band introduction is missing on this CD.
The forthcoming release from the "SR" label is titled "Living the
Pain" and will feature the unreleased show from Las Vegas February 21,
As everybody knows SR concentrates it's work on early 70's live period
of Elvis' activity, trying to produce always unreleased shows with Elvis
at the top of his possibilities. With the new release, we are proud to
present the complete show from February 21th midnight show, a rare show
from a Vegas winter season always poor of official and unofficial
releases.. Elvis' love of singing is clear in this tape and we are glad
to give you the opportunity to listen to it.
The midnight show from February 21th, as presented on this CD,
represents just one of the best shows of the season, If we look closely
at the first Vegas act of 1972 we can see that Elvis concentrates on the
music to produce great shows. The in-between song chat and banter have
gone and each number is delivered promptly without even a pause for
applause. The 'NEW' songs introduced do reflect the mood of the man and
for sure the rocking days are over but the rendition of the early
seventies repertoire is solid and sung with great ability.
Talking of these new additions we see some great songs, representative
of his life from this stage on. Naturally we are referring to songs such
as 'You Gave Me A Mountain' which has an autobiographical theme of a man
who no singing the pain, but LIVING IT and 'An American Trilogy' which
demonstrates his personal beliefs and patriotic views. Elvis also worked
hard to promote his new single 'Until It's Time For You To Go.' Here are
also included rare performance of Help Me Make It Through The Night
together the classic Bridge Over Troubled Water..
This recording come from an early generation copy of the master tape,
the sound quality is very good considering the early season. The sound
was restored in a studio to achieve best possible results. We have spent
hours in the studio over the digital restoration of the sound, to
achieve the best possible results and to give you the chance to hear it
This new CD will come in a new kind of deluxe long Digipack four panels,
containing a collection of live and candid photographs from early 1972 .
