The forthcoming release from the "Straight Arrow" label is titled "RED HOT IN
VEGAS" (SA 2006-5-02), and will feature the Las Vegas August 23rd, 1972 Midnight
show. Just like all previous releases from this label, this new CD will come in
a deluxe package with a 16-page booklet, containing a neat collection of
photographs from the August - September 1972 Las Vegas engagement (both on-stage
and candid shots), rare memorabilia, informative liner notes with an "Elvis in
1972" overview, as well as details about Elvis' Las Vegas 1972 Summer Festival.
The August 23rd Midnight show was one of the best concerts of the season; among
the highlights are great performances of ballads like "What Now My Love" and "My
Way", as well as some superb rock'n'roll numbers like "Proud Mary", "A Big Hunk
O'Love", "Little Sister / Get Back" and a fast version of "Polk Salad Annie".
This recording comes from an early generation copy of the original audience
recorded mastertape, and the sound quality is excellent for an amateur
recording, close to soundboard. The sound was professionally restored in a
studio. Unfortunately, the August 23rd, 1972 Midnight show was not recorded in
its entirety. "Missing tracks" were added from another show from the same
season; the August 13th, 1972 Dinner show. "For The Good Times" was Spliced
together fom the August 23rd and August 13th recordings. As a bonus, a 1972
interview with John Wilkinson was added. This CD is set for release early
