Elvis Presley | 'Vegas Throat' CD
November 23, 2019
An amazing 11 disc boxset was released and although it is a must, it is most likely it will be played often because most shows are pretty much the same as the one before.
CMT has made an outstanding 'Ultimate' release which includes ALL the songs (29 tracks!) from the shows in ONE performance!
Lots of time and effort went into the editing and it sounds like one complete show.
This is the one you will be playing over and over, this is why we are Elvis fans; to enjoy his music!
'Good evening ladies and gentlemen, this is my first live appearance in nine years. It is very dry in Las Vegas and singers have what they call a 'Vegas Throat'.

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.
