Touchdown har annonsert en ny 2CD: Atlanta Loves Elvis. Denne inneholder et publikumsopptak av showet i Atlanta 30. desember 1976.

From the Label: As 1976 came to an end, in spite of well visited concerts and a constant high interest of his fans his live concerts were reaching a low point in summer, which was noticeable at less euphoric feedback's from the press and his fans who were sometimes disappointed by his performance. The following autumn brought an upturn for Elvis. Towards the end of the year Elvis managed to turn his low point into his last golden age. His concerts were getting exiting with an Elvis who became more healthy and in shape again. The great mood of the King was showing of in his concerts which made his last tour 1976 to one of the greatest in the 70s. Touchdown presents an Audience Recording of the December 30 1976 concert on a new 2 Disc set. Elvis and Atlanta always had a special connection to each other which made concerts in Atlanta even more exiting. Elvis loved Atlanta and Atlanta loved him. An amazing set list and an artist who gave everything for the audience made this show the favorite for many fans. Even though this is just a record from the crowd the quality is amazing and much better than all others known so far what you can hear in the sample. Furthermore this evening Elvis sang and ultra rare and full length "Such A Night“ for his fans.
