Looking at a career that had more artistic and commercial triumphs than most in the 20th century, one could be forgiven for thinking that Elvis' run of four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden on June 9-11, 1972 was just another of these big events. But for Elvis, it wasn't.
Of all the live concerts released by RCA during Elvis' lifetime, none carried the historical significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Carden in June 1972. The New York Times review's headline "Like A Prince From Another Planet" proclaimed opening night a triumph. Featuring rare photos and memorabilia, this special 2-CD Legacy Edition combines the multi-platinum evening show released as 'Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden' in 1972 with the equally compelling afternoon concert issued in 1997 as 'An Afternoon In The Garden'.
