'A Private Audience With The King' new import CD: Straight Arrow new release features one of the best shows from his final Las Vegas engagement, namely the December 8th, 1976 9PM show, taken from the original source. Once again, a really good audience recording! - a new 2CD release, jewel case with a gorgeous 16-page booklet.  
This recording was previously released in 1991 by the PEAF label ("Tornado From Vegas"), but it was an incomplete version edited down to 70 minutes and the sound quality was below par. Straight Arrow was lucky enough to work with the original audio cassette as recorded by "Gemini", who was happy enough to attend and record all 15 shows of this season.
This December 8th, 9PM concert is somewhat special. Elvis looked and sounded better than in the days before this show, and he gave strong, laid-back performance which lasted for 84 minutes. 400 British fans were present together with fan club president Todd Slaughter, British journalist Clifford Davies, Elvis’ father Vernon and show business colleagues Liza Minelli, Merv Griffin, Tanya Tucker.
Among the show highlights are solid versions of "That's All Right", 

Softly As I Leave You", "Hurt" and a knockout performance of "How Great Thou Art".
The CD package is completed with a 16-page booklet, including a rare collection of photos from the December 8th, 9PM show and liner notes written by a person who was THERE and describes the show in fascinating detail. "A Private Audience With The King" will be released on December 10th, 2010. Do not miss your chance to obtain another winner from Straight Arrow!
