Press note:
To be released March 11, 2011: The brandnew BSM Label brings you an audience recording of Elvis Presley┤s show in Norfolk, Virginia of July 20, 1975 - 2:30PM (Matinee Performance). The cd has a running time of 79:50 min! The summer tour of 1975, with the exception of the final five city tour of 1976, can easily be considered the last great stand Elvis made. He was healthier, happier, and less distracted by his personal life on stage than he had been in 1973 and 1974.

Back was an Elvis filled with happiness to be touring. He was having a very good time with slightly different setlists, his good ole┤TCB band, and the audience. He also pulled out many rare songs, even songs he had never performed live before, and mixed up his set list quite a bit on this summer tour. He was singing with power and inspiration.

Especially in this Norfolk matinee performance he did an extremely powerful version of 'How Great Thou Art' and a rare "Promised Land". So have fun and enjoy the first release by BSM! Every copy of this cd comes with an 20 page booklet full of information regarding the show PLUS an extra poster (59,4 x 42,0 cm) containing the photo from the front cover of the CD booklet!


  Sound Sample:  Polk Salad Annie  
  Concert:  The show is really excellent showcasing Elvis and band in top condition. We have a great setlist and the audience went crazy. Definitely a show highlight out of a fantastic tour. Pity that the sound drops at the end. Anyway, highly recommendable ! (Ciscoking)
