Elvis : From Hawaii To Las Vegas 1973 Soundboard Dress Rehearsal FTD CD (Elvis Presley)
FTD 5" digi pack release, 'From Hawaii To Las Vegas' of an originally recorded soundboard recording of Elvis' January 25, 1973 Las Vegas dress rehearsal for his January/February 1973 season at The Las Vegas Hilton. The rough audio quality is more than compensated by the fascinating insight into how Elvis worked in order to create his shows. With little talk, and a lot of music, we are invited to a first row presentation of what he had in mind, and yet he decided to change the repertoire the very next day.
Among the many songs is 'Separate Ways' - rehearsed with and without the orchestra - a song that Elvis chose to never perform in public. So a very interesting release, one the likes of we have not had before.
