Three panel fold-out digipak
3 New Single CD Releases From Straight Arrow -
Our second release is titled "My Wish Came True". It was the 1st tour of 1977
and in spite of his unhealthy look, Elvis was in solid voice - especially near
the end of the tour. February 20 is one of best shows of the tour and it marked
the first time that Elvis attempted his recent single "Moody Blue".
Our release has been taken directly from a 1st generation copy of an original
audience recorded master cassette tape, as recorded by Claude Baker (aka Crazy
Canuck), who passed away in September 2016. Claude attended, and recorded, all
of Elvis' shows during the February tour of 1977.
Portions of the Charlotte concert were previously released from a soundboard
tape on the official 'Follow That Dream' label, but this show has never been
available on CD in its entirety before. Note: This is the very last
audience-recorded show from the February 1977 tour that is still unreleased. The
sound quality is very good. There are highlights a-plenty, including a soulful
'You Gave Me A Mountain', strong versions of 'My Way' and 'How Great Thou Art',
and a truly gorgeous 'Unchained Melody'.
As usual, this release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak, with a
collection of photos taken in Charlotte, February 20th, 1977 and two local press
reviews. With special thanks to our dear friend, the late Bob Heis.
