Elvis: Viva Las Vegas Spliced Takes CD
September 7, 2019
All songs from the movie are included, so besides the Elvis tracks, you also get the Ann Margret Songs and 'The Climb' performed by George McFadden
One of the highlights probably is the 'longer' version of 'If You Think...' it has been created using 8 splices and includes multiple sax solo's
'Do the Vega' has been giving an extra 'touch' by repeating the 'Shake like a son....' portion which makes it sound more up to date and modern.
'Santa Lucia' has a longer intro and extra instrumental break. The title track also sound very different due to the use of 3 takes and 4 splices.
As always you get a lot of value in these releases since almost everything sounds very different than usual without fake remixes.
'If you think you don't need this release.... then baby you're wrong!
Make sure to order your copy now!

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
