Elvis - Closing Night 1975 - AudiRec (Import news)
AudiRec proudly presents: ELVIS – CLOSING NIGHT 1975 – a brandnew CD Set which will be released shortly. It includes an audience recording of the complete performance from December 15, 1975 – well known as the “Closing Night” for Elvis´ December Las Vegas 75 Season.
Expectations were high when Elvis returned to Las Vegas in December of 1975. Will the “King” reign again or will he again leave tons of disappointed fans who were waiting for “their” concerts back in August of the same year, only to learn that Elvis had to cancel the main part of his two-week engagements at the Showroom then? To cut it short: Elvis delivered mainly great shows. He seemed to be relaxed and enjoying himself on stage. The fans loved the performances and from what we can hear on several audience recordings and soundboard recordings, too, this Las Vegas Winter season of ´75 was a very good one.
The concert is now being released for the first time in its entirety. The initial release of this show on cd goes back to the early 1990´s and lacks from a couple of missing songs. Furthermore it was even wrongly dated.
Expect a fine, decent 2 CD Set containing a great show and be sure to get your copy at your local dealer! Accompanied by a 16-page booklet with lots of information and pictures from the show itself plus some from the days before this new CD release is - just like the first two releases on AudiRec (the already sold-out titles “Elvis At The Hilton” and “Opening Night 1975”) - also limited to only 300 copies.
