| Press notes:
Rainbow Records proudly presents Volume 9 of their series “Vegas Variety”, featuring the complete performance of December, 1976 Dinner Show at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Nevada.
Rainbow Records is able to deliver the third to last Las Vegas performance Elvis ever did. This time the guys from RR managed to obtain the original cassette tape with a recording from this very evening. The fan who recorded the show in 1976 knew exactly how to do it and used two microphones and a very good recorder – so you can expect to hear the show in really good sound. Probably even listenable for the “I don´t like audience recordings” guys out there, who knows?
Anyhow - it is important for many Elvis-Fans to have just about every show Elvis ever did in their collection. Unfortunately there is no soundboard or professional recording available for every show. But still we are fortunate enough to hear most of the concerts because of the private recordings many fans did when they visited Elvis in Las Vegas and on his many tours. Those recordings might sound a bit rough to some ears but they are what they are: A document of Elvis´ big output of live performances.
As usual a very high quality booklet comes with this release. It has a lot of rare pictures from exactly this show (Dec. 11, 1976 DS) and information covering the magic of Elvis and Las Vegas back in December of 1976 on its 16 pages.

|Both shows from December 11 belonged to the best of this Vegas gig. And the fact that Mr and Mrs. Beaulieu were in the audience surely encouraged Elvis to deliver his best. (Ciscoking)
