While some of Elvis import labels are just re-releasing previously issued and
repackaged stuff, the always reliable E. P. Collector label is always looking
for something new to release. We are always reaching out to people in order to
find new material, and if it's interesting, we will purchase it, even if the
sound is not studio perfect. In recent months we were in touch with a couple of
fans who recorded a number of interesting concerts, which now enables us to
release two more surprises.
The first new release is titled "LOVE MY TEDDY BEAR TENDER" and it
brings us the Las Vegas, September 3rd, 1971 Dinner show. You'll have to forgive
us for the somewhat clumsy title, but maybe you'll understand when we tell you
that it contains a sensational concert rarity! During this concert, he sings
"Love Me Tender" to the tune of "Teddy Bear"!! He only did this once, during
this concert, and now for the first time you can hear this amazing discovery!!!
Who would think that we would still be getting surprises like this in 2019?!
Concert recordings from '71 are hard to come by these days, especially
unreleased ones. During this season, Elvis was on fire, and his setlist was
varied and strong. Near the end of the engagement, his shows were a bit looser,
and this one is a real delight. This concert recording is a completely new show,
even for the hardcore fans. The audio was mastered from an original audience
recorded cassette tape. This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a
press review and a collection of images taken in Las Vegas, NV, in
