MxF har annonsert en ny CD-utgivelse I sin serie «Wild Tiger in Concert'»; Magnetic As Ever. Denne inneholder et publikumsopptak av 20:00-showet i Spokane den 28. april 1973.

From the Label: The April Tour represent the first tour of the year, Elvis on tour means Elvis at the top of his possibilities. The 1973 is still a rocking Elvis, but without doubt is the year when all the demons come to the surface, maybe everything has to change to remain the same…...The year was begun with the glorious Hawaii TV satellite Show and after a pale useless Vegas season, Elvis recuperated from the fatigue, started the first tour of the year in a different mood … very energetic on stage, full of enthusiasm he sings with power delivering a solid and long show, with the classic repertoire of the 1973 including a incredible “Steaming rolling blues” version, together a sensitive I’ll Remember you and nice super pop I’m Leaving….. On stage is an impressive figure in Fire jumpsuit, the rocker attitude still intact, the voice great, the atmosphere enormous, the demand terrific, 13.000 lucky people attended at the two shows of Spokane. The show is unreleased almost complete, Johnny B.Goode is missing for the half.. Here we present the show directly from a first generation copy of a privately-recorded 60-minute cassette. The sound was painstakingly restored for your listening pleasure. The sound quality here is incredible good, considering it was taped from the audience. Elvis and overall the band is loud and clear, the sounds is very powerful in very good balanced mix with some great James Burton’ guitar solos, the audience is never too intrusive giving instead the real feeling of the concert. Like its predecessors, this new release will be presented in a beautiful four panels digipack with a collection of photos taken during the afternoon show. As bonus the first 500 copies will come with a Christmas Card 12x12 cm. The recording excellent quality and the superb show give to Magnetic As Ever the status of UNIQUE. Don’t miss it!!!!
