Announcement: This new 2-CD release from the BJ Records label with the title "Two Nights In Binghamton"featuring the May 26 & 27th, 1977 shows in Binghamton.
Back in 1999 the Coast To Coast label released the CD "Why Me, Lord" featuring the May 26th 1977 concert in Binghamton, NY.
While in reasonable sound at the time, it was released in much better sound the following year on the Krypton Label, both of these releases showed that there were still nights where Elvis could pull it off and leave a mesmerizing performance when the moment was right, it took until 2006 for the second show to become available on the Graceland Records label under the name"Second Night" that release showed us that Elvis did not run out of steam after the previous night, if anything he was giving even more during the second show! Just listen to one of the best versions of "Unchained Melody" as Elvis pours his heart out.
The two Binghamton shows are a good example of some of those special moments where Elvis got it together, Elvis performs a varied setlist with a couple of songs that hadn't been performed very often at the time, this includes the last live version of Kris Kristofferson's "Why Me, Lord", Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and even "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Heartbreak Hotel" were performed whilst not a standard anymore at the time, it made for a nice surprise!
BJ Records felt it was time to re-release these two shows because of their historic place in representing Elvis his final year of performing on stage, with the original releases out of print we've put both shows together in a neat package, this allows older and newer fans to have both shows in the same place, while also enjoying the improved sound quality.
This digipack has been filled with some great photos of Elvis taken during these two shows, and newspaper reviews. Itís a very limited edition set, go get your copy right now!
