Collected Works Part 1

August 16, 2021 | Music

Elvis’ first live LP “Elvis In Person” which was released as a double LP together with the “Back In Memphis” album reached the gold status in less than two months after its release. No wonder RCA decided to record another live album early 1970. This resulted in the “Elvis On Stage” LP featuring live performances from February 1970 at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. Also included were two left over recordings which were actually recorded for the “Elvis In Person” LP but they remained unused. The whole project asproduced by Felton Jarvis contained slight overdubs and applause. The recordings presented here are mostly undubbed or they are presented in unique mixes. Most of the tracks are sourced from near mint acetates containing those unique mixes. The original “Elvis On Stage” LP only reached the gold status eight months after its release. A reason may be that the album did not contain the usual golden oldies which you would expect on a live album. The album showed Elvis has grown beyond his hits and became an all-round entertainer. Also presented in this box set are two complete live midnight performances recorded right after the RCA crew left the building.
Just as all recordings on this set also these vibrant audience recordings are digitally remastered for optimum listening pleasure.
