'69 releases! As a bonus there is a newly remastered version of 'THE MEMPHIS RECORD', this great album contained alternate mixes and some of the best versions ever heard. Get it while you can and get back to 1969.
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.

Elvis was in fine form on this 'Hot August Night' of the 25th of August 1969, a performance perhaps never to be beaten. For those that only read the summery of reviews, I can be quite clear, this concert is without doubt the best live recording released to-date of Elvis Presley in 1969, and is one of the best concerts Elvis Presley ever performed - both in sound quality and performance! Why? I could say, listen to it and you will agree, but I offer you an interesting fact, it was from this concert that RCA chose to use seven  of the tracks to make up the original 12 track 'Elvis In Person' album in 1969. This is 58% of the albums tracks. And this is from the good number of concerts recorded of which several have been released on CD by FTD. So crystal clear stereo sound and a great performance.
