Back in the mid-to-late-'90s, the Rock Legends label had been responsible for several Elvis CD projects, however, it eventually and mysteriously dissolved as per the norm given its 'bootleg
t' status. The audio quality of these compact discs had largely varied from good to excellent but soundboard sources became scarce and competing with the then newly developed Follow That Dream
label proved difficult, if not impossible. Around 2013, the label resurfaced (suspected under new management) with several re-releases in the way of such titles as From Richmond To Greensboro, No More Feedbacks, and most recently with clearer audience recordings on Las Vegas' Voice Volumes 1 and 2, among others.
Straight Arrow is very pleased to bring you, 'Solid As Rock ' as a first for the label, two concerts from 1971: The Las Vegas August 27th, 1971 dinner & midnight shows. And what a delight it is to get fresh tapes from this year, and from this season, and in rather decent sound too - a rarity for early Vegas seasons. The August 27th, 1971 Dinner and Midnight Shows are taken directly from an original audience recorded master tape Straight Arrow team is always looking for rare, unknown or seemingly lost recordings. Once again, the labels researchers were successful - the Aug. 27, 1971 D/S is a completely new show, even for die-hard Elvis fans. It has never been in circulation - in any form!

For years they were known to exist, but here they finally were, in a quality that's rare for off-line recorded tapes. In fact, these tapes are so good sonically, that they can easily match anything that's out there.

This concert was released nine (9) years ago as a double CD set titled 'The Elvis Presley Show : Holding Down The Fort' and featured part of the opening acts on the first CD. The original tape had some damages and omissions, and therefore the show was made complete while using the same songs performed a month later at the same venue. It was well edited and runs as a complete show. It isn't most popular period for Elvis' concert but the two shows recorded in Fort Worth, TX turned out to be rather good at the time. The sound engineer Bruce Jackson was on a lucky and bad day altogether, but Elvis' mood turned the situation into a good one for his best sounding man on tour.

I just had the chance to finish up watching the new DVD release, Elvis : He Didn't Come Back ... We Did. I just love seeing 'That's The Way It Is' material in this kind of quality without the big, annoying 'Property of Turner' text on the screen. The small type on the 'On Tour' material is the way to go and so much less obtrusive. 'Elvis : He Didn't Come Back ...

Audio: Bing Crosby talks about Elvis Presley
. Bring Crosby talking with his biographer Pete Martin in 1957 : Bing's comments are surprisingly perceptive: 'He's gonna be a very big star, I mean, in a lot of fields ... he sings in tune, and he's got good rhythm, he just hasn't developed enough voice just yet to handle the ballads but that'll come ...' Bing clearly understood Elvis Presley and his talent, Elvis received the Bing Crosby award
in 1971 ...

To be released soon on the Straight Arrow label is the 2CD set 'Doin' The Best I Can', featuring two shows recorded on February 16. Most Elvis experts agree that the 'post Aloha' winter engagement was his weakest up to that point. Perhaps his inner turmoils played a role, but a rather severe throat infection most definitely did. It was so serious that midnight shows on Feb. 13, 14 and 15 ended up getting cancelled and dinner shows were performed against doctors advice. At some of the shows it was clear that the infection seriously hampered his ability to sing.
The forthcoming release from the 'SR' label is titled 'Moving Forward' and will feature the unreleased show from Las Vegas February 22, 1970 ds.

Coming soon isthe final Straight Arrow's single-digipack release of 2014 - 'Meet Me…at Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe!', featuring May 26th, 1974 Midnight show. While Elvis was alive, many fans dreamt of a chance to meet the man. The best chance that people had to meet him was at the Sahara in Lake Tahoe, where the intimacy of the showroom gave Elvis the possibility to interact with his fans ‘upclose and personal’. Those that were lucky enough to witness the star during one of his shows there in May ’74, witnessed a charismatic performer in full control of his art and his audience.
The touchdown label has chosen the July 22nd 1975 show from Asheville for their next release. 'Still Crazy After All These Years!' is a 2 CD Set and said to be a Superb audience sound recording. Many fans know: that the tour with which Elvis stopped for 3 days also in Asheville just made the best tours Elvis in his career. It is also the tour where he for the last time gave still really energetic shows, then he never again approached completely these great concerts.
Following the remarkable success of our earlier 3CD set 'On A Winning Streak', Straight Arrow is pleased to announce another 3CD collection featuring three more unreleased shows from the Summer 1973 engagement in excellent quality audience recorded audio. The three shows are all strong shows, with Elvis vocally strong (much more than in February '73) and delivering a very varied selection of songs at each of the shows. It's clear that he is in his element here, as his entertaining interaction with the audience and his knock-out vocal performances amply demonstrate.
Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow's double-digipak CD release, called 'Lightning Strikes Twice In Portland!', featuring the November 11th, 1970 and April 27th, 1973 Portland shows. These shows may well represent some of best of Elvis Presley live in the 70s. The Nov. 11th, 1970 recording really captures the raw excitement and electricity of those early tours. Elvis delivers a high octane performance that drives the audience in a frenzy.
The MxF label will release soon the second volume of 'Wild Tiger in Concert' entitled 'Magnetic As Ever', featuring the Spokane, April 28, 1973 8.00 PM Show. The April Tour represent the first tour of the year, Elvis on tour means Elvis at the top of his possibilities.

TNT Records' have announced, 'Bicentennial Superstar' will be their fourth CD release, again with a little help from 'our friends at 'Audionics', probably THE premium and still active label when it comes to rare recordings in best possible sound - we decided to take a closer look to the extremely busy Elvis in the Summer of 1976. (Does it sound more like these are in fact the same people). As we all know it was a time when Elvis actually should have cared a lot more for himself than for his fans. Money might also have been some kind of reason to continue restless touring and the quality of his performances were in many cases merely a shadow of the past. Still Elvis' popularity was tremendous and it seemed so easy to sell out every single show. And so he did on the two nights featured in this 2 CD set.
Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow's double-digipak CD release 'A New Decade, A New Sound', featuring the February 3rd and 5th, 1970 Dinner shows. Looking back at Elvis' final decade of live shows, there are two Las Vegas engagements that stand out: the August '69 one obviously, but certainly also the one in February '70. Whereas the '69 comeback shows were a natural extension of the NBC '68 special with a strong focus on his classic hits, the second engagement From the way he performed these songs, you could tell that he really loved them and genuinely enjoyed the new direction his career was now taking.
To be released soon is new CD 'Tryin' To Get To Tahoe' (label E.P. Collector, EPC 2014-02) recorded at the Lake Tahoe, NV, May 16, 1974 Opening show. Elvis' spring '74 shows were consistently strong, and the May concerts in Lake Tahoe were no exception. Elvis' shows there were solid and entertaining, and he was in particularly good voice. The set lists offered a wide variety of music, and Elvis' commitment and enthusiasm made these intimate shows very memorable for those who were lucky enough to attend them. The show on this CD has never been released in any form, and this very decent, digitally restored audience recording
gives you a unique perspective of what it was like to experience him in person in Lake Tahoe during this engagement.
The AudiRec label will release 'Elvis At The Hilton' a brand new audience recorded double CD Set with the the 2 concerts performed on September 2, 1973, the complete '3 A.M.' Show on disc 1 and the complete Dinner Show on disc 2.

After the success of our previous releases We decided: to give you more ... so we decided to not only bring you an UNRELEASED show with best audio possible , but also an expanded cd in deluxe digipack with practically two shows!!!

the sound is reportedly very good. The show is performed on a highly professional level with a dedicated Elvis giving it all.

Backdraft has now released the 2 separate 'Final Count to Midnight' titles, housed in a SUPER DELUXE jewel case. The 2CD version and a separate DVD only release, both with different front covers, contain a deluxe 24 page booklet inside of each. We would like to point out that the content of the booklet in both of the releases are entirely different and that, the photographs and text information are not repeated ON EACH of the releases. Of note, we are delighted to be able to tell you that it is now 100% complete - for the first time ever (Roughly an overall extension of 6 minutes). Due to the enormous success of Backdraft's Box set 'Final Count to Midnight' it appears that not enough copies were pressed which have left Elvis fans having to go without.
Most of Elvis' musicians prefer not to talk about Elvis' final tours, but whenever they do, they usually agree that final tour was one that should have never been undertaken. It was simply one tour too many. At this stage it was impossible to hide the fact that Elvis was in serious problems. However, the Lincoln concert is one of the finest shows from that last tour. Elvis sounds much better than in Omaha the day before. Straight Arrow's sound engineer was able to restore all 73 minutes of the Lincoln concert ... The August 24th, 1973 dinner show is unreleased in any form. From an excellent sounding 'booth' tape.
Due to the enormous success of Backdraft's Box set 'Final Count to Midnight' not enough copies were pressed which have left Elvis fans having to go without.

A 2 CD version and a separate DVD only release, both with different front covers, contain a deluxe 24 page booklet inside of each, housed in a deluxe 'super jewel case' (See images). 'We would like to point out that the content of the booklet in both of the releases are entirely different from the box set that was recently released and that, the photographs and text information are not repeated to each of the releases'

' and contains complete masters and outtakes, the original 'Girls! Girls! Girls!' mono masters as released in 1962, movie radio trailers and promo's plus as a bonus some instrumental tracks.
Elvis' 1970 Country album was a great idea, so it is a shame that with Elvis' interest in contemporary folk music he didn't release a 'Folk' themed album. For the May 1971 session Elvis had even used folk group The Nashville Edition as backing singers and selected some interesting songs to record. Now, with the release of 'Elvis Presley : Some Call It Folk' CD, for the very first time ... finally an Elvis 'Folk' album. Housed in a stunning 3 panel digipack this is a top notch Elvis CD release.

'Las Vegas, December 07, 1976' is the title of a new release of the only known available soundboard recording from Elvis' last Vegas season. Now newly remastered and for the first time available in the right speed!!! This show was first released on the cd 'Run On' in 1997. Although this is a soundboard recording, the sound quality is not very good. Whilst the sound quality is disappointing for a soundboard, the unusual circumstances of this show make it worthwhile to listen to. And as stated above, now you can hear this show for the first time on cd in remastered sound and in the right speed!
Here's another book of which fans have high expectations. 'Elvis : We'll Remember You
' is the 1.2 kilo heavy book by Ed Bonja, who worked as an official tour photographer and tour manager during 1970 – 1977. Ed took some 10,000 photos of Elvis live on stage, and backstage. This new release focuses on the seventies. The live section of the book covers all the concert years (1970 – 1975) when Ed used his camera. There will be quite a lot of material from 1972, which seems, in a way, to be Ed’s 'top year'. The countless b/w and color photos of the book show the clowning, rocking, smiling, moody Elvis – even lying on stage – and most of all: giving his all as an entertainer: singing!
Next up in the 'bootleg series' is 'For Mono Fans Only

As a special bonus we've included 6 radio spots and a movie trailer for the movie 'G.I. Blues'.

'The Nation's Favourite Elvis Songs' debuted on ITV in the United Kingdom.
When I think about Elvis' movies, I sometimes think back to when I first 'discovered' Elvis Presley (January of 1978) and my first impressions of 'Elvis movies'. What I always recall is initially enjoying these films but cringing when Elvis would start singing, probably nothing against Elvis, just that to my mind movies were for acting not singing, as such I could not stand it when the story was interrupted But then after a while (probably) I learned to love both (So I assume this part) but then it developed (I assume slowly evolved) into actually watching the movies FOR Elvis' singing and as the movies got 'tired' as in I had seen them often I began to lose interest in the actual movie and just watch for the songs. Which (I guess) eventually led to a decline in overall interest.
Gravelroad Music will release 'Elvis : Let It Rock!' containing the February 23, 1971 Closing Show. This is the fourth deluxe digipack CD and last of Gravelroad's highly sought after series LAS VEGAS JAN/FEB 1971 engagement. Just like the previous three CDs this is a limited pressing.

The Spirit Of 1971 DVD
follows the DVD Elvis 1969-1970
. After the much publicized Las Vegas shows in 1969 and 1970, Elvis returned to Vegas in 1971 for another run at the International Hotel. The shows Elvis gave during 1971 in Las Vegas, Tahoe and on the road are not widely known to many Elvis fans. Not many good photos were taken, not many press and news reviews were written.
'Elvis : That's the Way It Is : The Complete Shows' contains two (2) dual layered DVDs

' contains 3 hours
of quality film of Elvis' rehearsals. Both titles are in full stereo
and in 5.1 Surround Sound
In twelve days, Elvis cut thirty-six sides at 'American Sound'. While the overdubs made the songs undeniably more commercial, had the tracks been initially released without them, the resulting albums might have been even more revolutionary, taking Elvis Presley's career in an entirely different direction. As Peter Guralnick observed on listening to the multiple takes of In The Ghetto
, 'As the song develops, one is provided with an incontrovertible glimpse of what the process might have been like for Elvis, if only he had been able to approach recording consistently as an art' ... in the undubbed form here we have Elvis as he could have been.

Gravel Road Music's 3CD Memphis 1969 box will be released January 3rd. This release is intended to be a flawless release with the best sounding Elvis of 1969. We started by going back to the basic recordings of the American sound studio; the edited repaired master tracks without the dubbing done later in Nashville. The combination package 'Elvis In Person & Back in Memphis' was the basic concept, but we wanted more. During the first days of the comeback in Las Vegas in 1969, special RCA presentation box sets were given away. These box sets are very rare and expensive to get hold of. This was the perfect 1969 package idea for this release. Included are:
The reproduction slipcase of the famous 1969 presentation box set ...

After the success of the first three releases We decided: first to improve the product and second, keeping the same formula to give you more ...
The double LP
set, 200 Gr. vinyl,
33 rpm picture disc
never sounded better!!!! is a limited edition hand numbered release of 500 copies. It comes with an three fold 300 gram high quality glossy sleeve both sides printed, giving an unique view. The sleeve will be accompanied Newspapers clips and with many photographs of the Elvis different suits wore in February. Both the vinyl disc will be for the first time of the label, an incredible two picture disc, a real collectors gem!!!!!! The CD
with the Houston show, will be accompanied with a plain sleeve. We hope you can enjoy this Fourth product in the way to give life to more of his kind in next future.
I must admit to finding that the 1969
is a remarkable work that should have broad appeal - a big surprise. My initial skepticism was quickly overcome. This concert DVD should appeal to any Elvis fan that likes Elvis music to start with. With full quality normal audio, from CD, anyone can play this via their DVD player preferably then with the audio output via a stereo system. [And this is no diversion from what the format is] This DVD is well worth consideration for inclusion in your Elvis library for several reasons.
