LABEL: Straight Arrow (SA 2009-12A/B-02).
NOTE: doppio CD, audience recording dello spettacolo di apertura del 2 dicembre 1976 a Las Vegas.
In allegato al bootleg abbiamo un libretto di 16 pagine.
Ottimo spettacolo, forse il migliore di quest’ultimo ingaggio nella “città del peccato”.
Troviamo una rarissima versione di “I just can’t help believing”, da quasi 6 anni lasciata nel cassetto. Per il resto, 100 minuti di buonissimo Elvis.

  1. Thank you so much for this one Marco
    Have a good week my friend _ Elvis always sounded great in any situation /city he attended _ Vegas was a prison towards the end tho for him _in early years like 1969 - 73 he was King @Vegas -but towards the end it was monotonous and all he saw was his penthouse suite and stage and that was it _It was kinda boring for him to just do this - Don't you think _

    Post Note - it will be interesting to see other fans comment on this view that i put onto y'all _
    Thanks in advance

  2. Thank you very much Marco for this release. Very appreciated.
