|| Note: The
Elvis songs were not remixed and restored, the backing tracks has been
completely replaced with karaoke music. Presumably taken from the "EP
Project, Canada" releases for tribute artists. Does that mean Elvis sings
The first renewed Victrola label 2022 project is arriving! Of course it is
NOT the usual re-release, but a fresh new project in the completely upgraded
sound! All songs have been restored, remixed into stereo and we bet you will
love the result!
Ann Nixon, who is a very famous Elvis fan, said it all: "Seeing and hearing
Elvis live is a happening in itself. No gramophone record can reflect the
sound of Elvis' voice as he sounded in the real life. The dynamic range and
the power that came with his voice were never captured like people really
experienced it live."
Being with Elvis in Las Vegas is like having a private concert. Nowadays
there are countless recordings of Elvis' shows, and with this project we
want to try to show you how it was to experience the real Elvis live in Las
Vegas as had you been there in person.
We are aware of the soundboard recordings of Elvis, but quite often they are
instrumentally incomplete, or the strong bass or heavy orchestra is
overbearing the other instruments in the sound mix. Our dream was to restore
this unique collection of live songs that Elvis performed during his Vegas
years to their fullest glory. In this project we used the 1970 "On Stage"
album as a template and we dreamt of what an original Elvis album would have
looked like in the mid 70s. It was clearly noticeable throughout this
project is how well Elvis really did sing on stage, and how immaculate the
arrangements of the songs were.
That combination and Elvis' unbelievable charisma made everything sound
right. Sometimes Elvis did two shows in one night in front of 2500 people
during the span of one month. This would be almost the same as performing at
the Radio City Music Hall in New York City during four consecutive weeks.
All selections sound fresh and lively like never before!
