Press note:
The forthcoming release from the "SR" label is titled "Rock and Blues" and will feature the unreleased show from Las Vegas February 06, 1972 Midnight + two parts of a show preformed February 21 and 22, 1972.

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. This our seventh release, we are proud to present three very rare shows, one complete and part of two others so as to give you a more complete view of the season. The complete show from February 6th midnight performance is the first audience released recording from this season and in addition we combine the best of the February 21st midnight show and the 22nd dinner show to give you the opportunity to listen to a larger picture of the man and his music during this season. Elvis' love of singing is clear in these tapes and we are glad to give you the opportunity to listen to them.

The midnight show from February 06th, 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 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 performances of Help Me Make It Through The Night and Hawaiian Wedding Song.

These recordings come from an early generation copy of the master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the 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 with pleasure. So enjoy our work and realize: this is the best possible audience recording(AR) of this season you can find all around! Until now we had only the opening night and a live compilation from BGM from the period 14-17 February. Here is the first chance to listen to a different Elvis in a complete show far away from nervousness of an opening night or a professional recording.

For the first time from this label, this new CD will come in a deluxe package with a 16-page booklet, containing a collection of live and candid photographs from February - 1972 and informative liner notes. Not a simple collection of pictures but a booklet professionally edited in line with the tradition of SR's previous one. We spent time to research good shots in a way to give shape to something different and an artistic layout hard to do overall because extended throughout a 16 page booklet.


Sound Sample:  One Night
Concert: A solid show with typical setlist. Again Elvis doesn`t talk much. The interaction with the audience is definitely missing which makes the show appear a bit rushed. Highlight the new American Trilogy which creates its own atmosphere. Many bonus songs. (Ciscoking)
