From the publisher; This is the fourth deluxe digipack CD and last of our highly sought after series LAS VEGAS JAN/FEB 1971 engagement. Just like the previous 3 CDs in limited pressing. This CD contains the complete closing show of February 23, 1971. Twenty-two color photos of the same show and a beautiful and rare poster as a centerfold are used to make this a fabulous package Elvis 1971 style! Audio has been restored to a more balanced sound and the missing rare first live version of “Help me make it through the night” is also included! We believe, with our four releases to have captured Elvis at his best! In Vegas 1971. Great sound, Quality photos, Strong in-depth liner notes. About the show, the quality of performing is truly excellent, Elvis is committed to give an excellent show. Less talkative between songs until the last part of the show, where he start to talk and surprises us with his very first known performance of “Help Me Make It Through The Night”, which he will record only a little while later that same year. Was it a try out? Much more background info you can find in the liner notes… Definitive highlights of the show are “Polk Salad Annie”, “How Great Thou Art”,“Bridge Over troubled Water”, “Help Me Make It Through The Night” and the powerful “The Impossible Dream”! What you can expect from us… Gravelroad Music stands for high quality releases, with very high expectations for both the audio and the packaging and background information.
