August 11, 1971 DS is the fifth show of the second annual Elvis Summer Festival. From The August 1971 season there is no any soundboarding recording available...the dinner show of August 11 is the closest thing, ...second our personal view..even better, because together a superb audio quality, we have the best and varied Elvisí performance of the season. This season shows very well that Elvis has widen his musical range in many ways, giving view of a larger spectrum to his musical performance. Talking about show, what we can say! surely Elvis delivery an Explosive mix between high energetic songs as Proud Mary, Johnny B. Goode, Polk Salad Annie or the oldies Hound Dog and Lawdy Miss Clawdy together power pop ballad like You Donít have to Say You Love Me and Itís impossible. Talking about best song is always very hard, however in this case Elvis gives us a hand..after a rare an impromptu version of Memphis Tennessee no too rehearsed, but complete a voice come from the audience ďYou are good Elvis, but your band plays too loudĒ . Elvis replied immediately by saying ďCome on man your ears are too oldĒ. After that Elvis gives life to the first complete and probably best version of ď Tryiní To Get To YouĒ. Elvisí voice reaches a level of unexpended energy, in the same time that band really kicked on the tune, an unbelievable performance for this great show.
