Vegas Variety Vol. 8

To be released March 2nd, 2012: Rainbow Records proudly presents Volume 8 of their series "Vegas Variety", featuring the complete performance of August 6, 1972 Midnight Show at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Nevada.

Rainbow Records is again able to deliver a very fine show in really nice sound, recorded by some fans tape recorder which has been secretly brought with by a fan. It is important for many Elvis-Fans to have just about every show Elvis ever did in their collection. Unfortunately there is no soundboard or professional recording available for every show. But still we are fortunate enough to hear most of the concerts because of the private recordings many fans did when they visited Elvis in Las Vegas and on his many tours. Those recordings might sound a bit rough to some ears but they are what they are: A document of Elvis´ big output of live performances. As usual a very high quality booklet comes with this release. It has a lot of pictures and information covering the magic of Elvis and Las Vegas back in August/September of 1972 on its 20 pages.

Tracklisting: 01. Also Sprach Zarathustra 02. C. C. Rider 03. Proud Mary 04. Until It's Time For You To Go 05. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me 06. You've Lost That Loving Feeling 07.

Watching Your Dreams Into Ashes

As Elvis wound down his seventh visit to Las Vegas, he probably felt a mixture of elation, depression and nervous anticipation. The shows in August and September 1972 were sold out, professional and well-received. He looked great and sang like a bird, as these two previously unreleased sterling performances on September 2 clearly prove. But in mid-August it was reported he had filed a divorce action in Santa Monica Court from his wife Priscilla. Then, immediately prior to his closing show, Elvis participated in a press announcement for a January 14 worldwide satellite broadcast of "Aloha From Hawaii" to an estimated total TV audience of 1.4 billion people. 1973 would be a year of enormous highs and tremendous lows, as Elvis began to watch his dreams turn into ashes.

These previously unissued Dinner and Midnight sets are taken from 24-bit digital transfers of the first-generation copies of privately-recorded cassettes. They were recorded by the same fan and are presented in superb monaural sound.

Like its predecessors from Straight Arrow Special Products mini series, this new release will be presented in a beautiful digipack with all the necessary information as well as a collection of photos of Elvis in his "Blue Swirl suit" suit as taken at the Hilton in late August / early September 1972.

If you liked Straight Arrow's previous outing "BEFORE DARKNESS FALLS", you will like this one, too!

Late Night In LA

"In early February the new label 'Verve' will release their first CD which will contain a much improved version of Elvis show from May 11, 1974. The first release of this concert was released through the collectors label FTD in combination with a book about the concert. Annoyingly the speed ran obviously to slow and the pitch was also wrong. When it was released as a single CD there was hope that FTD worked on the show for the better, but once again nothing was done to correct the faults. So here you can hear the show for the first time at the correct speed and the correct pitch. Also we did everything to improve the overall sound quality and as a result you'll get to hear a soundboard that could have sounded this good in the first place.

[01] Also Sprach Zarathustra - [02] See See Rider - [03] I Got A Woman/ Amen - [04] Love Me (with reprise) - [05] Trying To Get To You - [06] All Shook Up - [07] Teddy Bear/ Don't Be Cruel - [08] Love Me Tender - [09] Steamroller Blues - [10] Hound Dog - [11] Fever - [12] Polk Salad Annie - [13] Why Me Lord? - [14] Suspcicous Minds - [15] Band Introduction - [16] I Can't Stop Loving You - [17] Help Me - [18] An American Trilogy - [19] Let Me Be There (with reprise) - [20] Funny How Time Slips Away - [21] Big Boss Man* - [22] Can't Help Falling In Love* 
The main part of the show was recorded on May 11, 1974 during the evening show in Los Angeles at the Inglewood Forum. Only the tracks marked with '*' were recorded on May 10, 1974 during the evening show in San Bernadino."

Elvis November Tour

Press release:
CD Saturday, November 13 1971 (2:30 pm). Dallas TX. Memorial Auditorium
DVD Saturday, November 13 1971 (2:30 /8.30 pm). Dallas TX. Memorial Auditorium+ Monday,November 15 1971 (8:30 pm). Kansas City MO. Municipal Auditorium

Available from the end of January, Elvis' November Tour (SR Records Special Product) with focus on Elvis' November 1971 tour. 
Here we proudly present to you the first of three volumes of SR special products dedicated to the year 1971. 
After the first attempt in January 2006 with the import Setting The Standard accompanied with a bonus DVD-r first 100 copies only, the necessity to show Elvis' in live action gave us the push to give shape to this special product series. We accompanied the usual audio concert with a real DVD as we wanted to allow you the possibility to see the man where he reigned: on the stage. Here we present to you the complete Dallas 13th November 1971 afternoon show, although part (about half) previously issued by Sundial Production in 1996 (Kicked it up in Dallas) here you have the chance to have the complete show in a superior audio quality, a digital transfer of the first-generation copy, the sound was painstakingly restored for your listening pleasure.

Together here we present to you a professional DVD (the lucky people who have the Setting The Standard know what we are talking about) with previously released and unreleased footage from the Dallas afternoon/evening shows and for the first time the complete 20:00 min footage of Kansas City. 
The DVD will include the three shows along with a series of special features to give you the idea about how the DVD was made. Elvis in Nov 71' was a spectacle to see and for all majority of the people who missed the opportunity to attend to the 1971 shows we think this DVD can demonstrate what we are talking about. Working on such old video-tapes of the early eighties hasn't been easy, we worked for almost one month to give life to 50 minutes of digitally-remastered and edited video.....after a pre-filtered acquisition of the old material we worked for the same time in the restoring of the video-quality and the professional editing of the "NEW" material. All the footage has been digitally restored in order to achieve the optimum image quality. The footage has been synced with audio from the original concert and the 8mm footage speed corrected so that audio and video are timed correctly. We hope the rarity of this video and our determination to make a great job give you the opportunity to enjoy the end result.

Elvis' November tour is, we think, the best moment of Elvis' comeback to live shows, the perfect balance between vocal ability and live wild action; both the Dallas shows together with Houston are the best moments of the tour. So we are glad to give you the opportunity to listen and view Elvis at the top of his prowess.

For the first time on this label, the double set will come with double printed DVD sized sleeve, containing a collection of live RARE photographs of the three shows and all the necessary details. The first 500 copies will come with a bonus collector card.

The Hillybilly Cat Live

Here's the press release:
Graceland Records is planning a new CD release, a digipack with gorgeous photos and liner notes plus technical information. It features one of the best shows from his August Las Vegas engagement, namely the August 23rd, 1970 dinner show, taken from the original unspoiled – a tremendous audience recording! This recording was partly released in 1970 on vinyl as "The Hillbilly cat, Live", but it was a combined version of 2 different shows, August 23rd dinner and 24th Midnight show. The sound quality was great for the time the time. Rumors were that a professional recording (soundboard) was used. This is not the case; a stereo tape recorder was used directly in front of the center stage. Graceland Records was lucky enough to work with the original audiocassette. These days the possibilities to improve an audience tape are far greater than they were in 1970, so this recording now sounds significantly better than it did on the 1970 vinyl bootleg.

Now Finally for the first time ever on CD. 
One of the first bootlegs ever, "THE HILLBILLY CAT LIVE" A much sought-after double album from Canada, released back in 1970 with a mix of two shows, edited to create one powerhouse performance. 
Now for the first time the complete tape recording of the first of these 2 shows: the August 23rd 1970 dinner show, which was only partly released on the double album and now in full, with only the last part of "Suspicious Minds" & "Can't help falling In Love" repaired with audio from the August 24th midnight show. Due to a little mistake the tape was turned off too fast, but he wrote down the set list.

This show is hilarious, wild and loose: Elvis was in great spirits & the Hollywood cameras were gone. The many false starts indicates that he was fooling around and having a great time doing it.. With probably the craziest intro ever to "Hound Dog", a wild and rocking version. With great renditions of "Tiger Man" "That's all Right" and "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" All phenomenal performances..

A fantastic and entertaining show where he combines humor and true entertainment. A sparkling show with no weak spots. Elvis was on top of his game ! This is definitively one of the finest performances of this season.

Do not miss your chance to obtain another winner from Graceland records ! 
Tracks:
01. That's All Right 02. I Got A Woman / Ave Maria (excerpt) 03. Tiger Man 04. Monologue 05. Love Me Tender (with false start) 06. I've Lost You 07. I Just Can't Help Believing 08. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' 09. Polk Salad Annie 10. Band Introductions 11. Johnny B. Goode 12. Band Introductions 13. The Wonder Of You 14. Heartbreak Hotel (with 2 false starts) 15.

All Shook Up (false start only) / Hound Dog 18. Bridge Over Troubled Water 19. Suspicious Minds 20. Can't Help Falling In Love. Short version: 
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD! 
One of the very first bootlegs, first released in 1970: 
THE HISTORIC ... THE HILLBILLY CAT "LIVE"! THIS WAS A SOUGHT-AFTER DOUBLE LP FROM CANADA, FEATURING TWO 1970 VEGAS SHOWS (AUGUST 23 DS & AUGUST 24 MS) EDITED TOGETHER AS ONE POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCE. MANY BELIEVED IT WAS A SOUNDBOARD RECORDING, BUT IT WAS SIMPLY A GREAT STEREO TAPE, MADE FROM A FRONT, CENTER TABLE. NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME, HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES, ENHANCED USING 21ST-CENTURY TECHNIQUES. The AUGUST 23 DS is the COMPLETE TAPE, which was only partly released on the double album. Only the last part of "Suspicious Minds" and "Can't Help Falling In Love" were missed by the taper, and repaired using the AUGUST 24 MS.

This show is hilarious, a wild and loose Elvis was in great spirits, as the Hollywood cameras were gone. Listen for perhaps the most delicious intro ever to "Hound Dog," a wild and rocking version, for sure one of the best of this season. Also hear great renditions of "Tiger Man," "That's All Right" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'"! 
This is a fantastic and entertaining evening, where Elvis combined his unique humor with true entertaining -- a sparkling show with no weak spots. No wonder it became one of the first, and most legendary Elvis bootleg LPs! 01. That's All Right 02. I Got A Woman / Ave Maria (excerpt) 03. Tiger Man 04. Monologue 05. Love Me Tender (with false start) 06. I've Lost You 07. I Just Can't Help Believin' 08. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' 09. Polk Salad Annie 10. Band Introductions 11. Johnny B. Goode 12.

Before Darkness Falls

Elvis' 1973 "Summer Festival" was his ninth month-long stand in Las Vegas since July-August 1969. Reviews noted his excess weight and half-hearted performances. But, despite bad press, health issues and a 1967 marriage that would soon end in divorce, Presley slowly warmed to his always-thrilled fans.

The songs here, from his Sunday shows on August 26th, 1973, are a good example of this warmth. At both shows Elvis welcomed the presence of Lisa, his beloved daughter, then just five and-a-half years old. Obviously, she provided additional inspiration for her dad. In fact, there are several rare highlights, including "A Big Hunk O' Love," "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," "Release Me" and "How Great Thou Art." And for fans of legendary bass player Emory Gordy, Jr., these would be among the last dates he would ever do with Presley.

Both the Dinner and Midnight sets are taken from a 24-bit digital transfer of the first-generation copy of a privately-recorded 120-minute cassette. The sound was painstakingly restored for your listening pleasure.

The August 26th, 1973 Dinner show is previously unissued, while the Midnight show was released in substandard mono by Memory Records in 2002 ("Caught In The Act"). Straight Arrow presents both shows in superb, "two-mike live ambience" stereo sound.

Like its predecessors from Straight Arrow Special Products mini series, this new release will be presented in a beautiful digipack with all the necessary information as well as a collection of photos taken during the September 1st, 1973 dinner show.

If You Don't Come Back

A new release to be out soon is "If You Don't Come Back". This disc is the "lost album" of Presley imports. It has a long history and would likely never have been released if not for the many requests over the years. 
The version of "Loving Arms" here is worth the price of admission. Never has Elvis been so up-close and personal, as if he's singing in your living room! 
The tracks have been carefully selected to retain the "Stax sound."

At the time, this Elvis session was an unique blend of country, funk, gospel and rhythm & blues. It was an attempt to reach the mainstream sounds of the day, like what Elvis managed in 1969. But this time RCA was embracing the famous Stax sound. Enjoy a prime slice of the "Stax sound"! 

* GREAT SOUND
* 16 TRACKS

San Francisco Bay Blues

14 years after the first release of this show, Audionics delivers a slightly more complete version of Elvis Presley's San Francisco November 28th, 1976 show, as taken from the mixing desk. Elvis first played San Francisco on October 26th, 1957, two shows on one day, near the very end of his final fifties tour. He would not return to the legendary "City by the Bay" until almost exactly 13 years later, on November 13th, 1970, at the legendary Cow Palace.

Presley made his final two appearances in the same building on November 28 and 29, 1976. Unlike most tour shows earlier in the year, Elvis was in fine form, and the shows were well received by the San Francisco crowd. 
For the SAN FRANCISCO BAY BLUES reissue, Audionics worked directly with a first generation, DAT copy of the original soundboard tape and made some improvements to the audio. It was a painstaking process of repairing and enhancing the original binaural recording, and then the sound was mixed down to genuine stereo.

Originally, the left channel consisted of all vocals and nearly all the instruments, while the right channel featured only piano (Tony Brown) and rhythm guitar (John Wilkinson). To give the listener an idea of how this sounded, four digitally-restored, binaural bonus tracks are included. Unfortunately, the original tape ends during "Hound Dog" (previously unreleased), missing the show's closing tracks "Hawaiian Wedding Song", "Blue Christmas", "That's All Right" and "Can't Help Falling In Love".

SAN FRANCISCO BAY BLUES is presented in a neat-looking digipack filled with photographs taken during the November 28th Cow Palace concert. 
Here's your chance to listen to SAN FRANCISCO BAY BLUES - for the first time as complete as originally recorded.

A Triple Threat! & Alright, Okay You Win Out Now

Out now are the Triple Threat and Alright You Win CD's. 
Triple Threat 
As recorded at the Sahara Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, NV - Sunday, May 2, 1976 
Label: Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2011-03-02 In the past year 'Straight Arrow' managed to obtain a couple of superb-quality Vegas and Tahoe off-line recordings suitable for special releases. The third volume of our "STRAIGHT ARROW SPECIAL PRODUCTS" mini-series is "A TRIPLE THREAT!" (SA/SP 2011-03-02) and features the super-cool Lake Tahoe concert from May 2, 1976.

Of all of Elvis' 70s concerts, those in Lake Tahoe are the most poorly-documented. In a way it's a real pity, because the beauty of the Nevada surroundings and the intimacy of the Sahara showroom always seemed to bring out the best in him. Although Elvis looked somewhat unhealthy in May 1976, he appeared to be in a very good mood, and his warm interaction with fans made the shows quite memorable. The May 2, 1976 gig featured on this release is one of the longest and most entertaining that he gave.

Listening to this, one might easily get the impression that Elvis was courting guests in his living room. There's a nice intimacy to the recording, and his interplay with audience and musicians alike is a true delight. There are also a number of vocally-impressive performances in evidence, one being Elvis' latest RCA single, "Hurt," which he reprises twice! It is the only known date where "Hurt" was performed three times due to the terrific audience response! Worth a mention as well are solid performances of "Burning Love", "My Way", "Tryin' To Get To You" and "An American Trilogy".

This previously unreleased show is taken from a 24-bit digital transfer of a first-generation copy of original cassette. Since the recorder was very close to James Burton's stage monitor, the lead guitar is exceptionally well-defined in the sound image.

Like its predecessors, this new release will be presented in a beautiful digipack with all the necessary information, plus Lake Tahoe memorabilia and photos taken during actual gig. If you dug "FADED LOVE" and "YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY YOU LOVE ME" CDs, we'll bet that you will love this one, too. 
Tracks: CD1: 
01. Introduction: Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman (with break) / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. You Gave Me A Mountain 07. Elvis talks - 08.

Alright, You Win 
Since the late 70s, there were rumours that the tour opening in College Park was a complete disaster - one of the worst Elvis concerts ever. This rumour was first published in Jerry Hopkins' book, and it was repeated in various publications so many times that almost nobody had any doubt. In 2006, Straight Arrow released a CD called "CHAOS IN COLLEGE PARK" which was an eye-opener, and proof that it was rather decent concert with some fine performances, too.

According to several books, the Detroit, MI, September 29th, 1974 afternoon performance was another of the most controversial Elvis Presley events. In a recent book, "DAY BY DAY", it's said that Elvis was on stage for 30 minutes only, giving his worst concert of the tour. 
In August, Straight Arrow obtained a bunch of tapes, among them a 1st generation copy of a previously unknown audience recording of this Detroit concert. The producers decided to release this particular recording because it is an interesting show in good sound quality. Will another myth be shattered? Is the show as bad as its reputation? Judge for yourself. It's worth pointing out that the running time is about an hour, and not 30 minutes. 
As you've come to expect from Straight Arrow, the tape was completely restored for your enjoyable listening. The disc is accompanied with a deluxe 16-page booklet, including critical liner notes and a collection of photos taken in Detroit on Sept. 29th, October 4th and in South Bend on September 30th, 1974. 
"ALRIGHT, OKAY, YOU WIN" will be released in early October.

Tracks:

01. Opening Vamp / C. C. Rider - 02. I Got A Woman / Amen - 03. Love Me 04. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 05. It's Midnight - 06. Big Boss Man - 07. Fever - 08. Love Me Tender - 09. Hound Dog - 10.
