Description

A definitive portrait of the artist in 1972, the Elvis On Tour box set arrives in the wake of the release of Warner Bros. Disc 1 was recorded live on April 9, 1972, at Hampton Roads Coliseum, Hampton, Virginia, and contains all previously unreleased material. The 2018 ‘Amiga’ 'Elvis On Tour' bootleg – a 13-inch boxset plus 128-page hardcover book - is by far the best celebration of ‘Elvis On Tour’ including impressive text, details, photos and is a real commemoration of the excitement of Elvis on stage in 1972.

It includes the premiere of the complete rehearsal recorded in Buffalo, NY on April 5, 1972, with three previously unreleased performances. The mix is crystal clear as if they had been recorded for album release and you can really enjoy the ambience of the RCA studio. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. Here Elvis sings the songs at a slower pace than he would on stage which also gives a more relaxed, sincere feel to the songs, especially the ballads. Disc 3 was recorded live on April 14, 1972, at Greensboro Coliseum, Greensboro, North Carolina, and contains all previously unreleased material.

So we are giving them a little more time but eventually if they don’t come around, we will release the material that we have which is pretty substantial.

The reviewer remarked Parker's discrete appearance on the documentary and he praised the cinematography. Release Me’ also has a lovely funky gospel groove more very different to the “max- power” On Stage version.The fourth CD features the 18th April gig at the Convention Center Arena, San Antonio, Texas, and includes material that was part of 2003’s Elvis: Close-Up box set, however it has been newly remixed for this release. Aididge's crew shot Presley behind the scenes in Jacksonville, Florida, where they captured what would become the documentary's final scene. In the (for me) good mixes, the team around Rob Santos and Steve Rosenthal was always there, but Matt Ross Spang didn't manage it so well in my opinion, even at the Aloha concert on FTD. The reviewer praised Zemke's work editing the film, but he felt that the use of the split screens "becomes too much".

CD 5 has audio recorded live at RCA Recording Studios in Hollywood, California, on 30th and 31st March 1972. With that, and two stunning performances done in Hampton Roads that day, it was time to “Take it home”. Elvis' voice sounds very tinny and far off at the start of the track and then about half way through, his voice is brought back to normal. Only the second time that he had performed it live and the crowd must have been stunned as they would have never heard this classic before – amazingly it wasn’t to be released for another 4 months. Especially when Turner recreated TTWII it was with hope of critical acclaim and financial rewards for Turner and although I think TTWII has done fairly well it was never a big commercial success.

Throughout the concerts you really get the feeling of the excitement from the audience shrieks and show is less rushed than Madison Square Garden and perhaps these concerts have even more of the feel of “A Prince From Another Planet”.

The reviewer favored Presley's live sets, but he felt the scenes that followed him to the next show were repetitive and that Presley played for "idolatrous legions". Rather than merely emulating the records in the mold of a nostalgia act, Presley and the TCB Band reinvigorated the older songs with taut, funky arrangements and an abundance of energy. I hope that Ernst Jorgensen one day discovers a "power line" of the multitrack concerts as a renewed marketing opportunity (just a hint from me ;) ) or that MGM takes money in hand and releases all FOUR 'On Tour' concerts complete on Bluray with new mix out. EIN NOTE: Interesting points and I did note that to my ears on Hampton Roads "The new mix also lowers the previously loud JD Sumner in the mix.I also agree that "John Wilkinson's rhythm guitar is virtually inaudible" on most of the shows but in the end I had to cull my way-too-many pages of notes to create a readable review. Note that back in 2018 EIN wrote, "This AMIGA bootleg is an incredible, all-encompassing Deluxe presentation of ‘Elvis On Tour’ in pictures and sound. While tonight Elvis might have been more ‘business mode’ the new mix / remaster with its great focus on the rhythm section truly delivers the goods.
