ONONDAGA Nights - Straight Arrow (Import news)

ONONDAGA Nights - Straight Arrow (Import news)


Following the remarkable success of our „From The Rick Rennie Mastertapes“ series, it is time to move on to yet another exciting project. Straight Arrow is pleased to announce this new 2CD set, featuring two concerts from the July/August Bicentennial tour, in topnotch audience recorded quality. It was somewhat problematic tour and especially at the end of July and first days of August, Elvis' voice was affected by some kind of laryngitis. Nevertheless, the two concerts from Onondaga War Memorial Auditorium in Syracuse are examples of two solid Presley concerts, with Presley sounding clear and enthusiastic, and in good voice. Both shows were taken directly from recently found original audience-recorded mastertapes. The July 25th, 1976 show was released in 2002 on a CD called „Stormin’ Syracuse“ from an inferior and incomplete source. The July 27th show is previously unreleased. Every second was digitally restored, every click manually removed, every drop-out fixed to achieve optimal listening pleasure. Ask your local dealer for samples to judge for yourself!

This special release is presented in a de-luxe double digipack, accompanied by a 24-page booklet filled with many professional photos from July 27th and positive press reviews of both shows. Photos from July 25th are extremely rare (amateurish snapshots only). A couple of them have been added in spite of problematic quality, for historic reasons.
