FTD 128: The Return To Vegas ( PRE-ORDER )
This is the official release of the soundboard recording that Joan Deary planned as a double albumrelease back in the late seventies. It’s the earliest known professional recording from Elvis’ 1969engagement in Las Vegas. The original tape box has “opening night” written on the back, but that’s not the real date. Some experts believe it’s from August 3, but we have no information what so ever to suggest a certain date. However, the arrangements seem to suggest that this show is definitely several days earlier than the shows RCA recorded from August 20 and onwards. Why Joan Deary edited and mastered this for release is another mystery, since she off course had all the shows RCA recorded on 8-track tape with audio in substantially better quality.
