CHAOS IN COLLEGE PARK - SA 2006-4-02

The new release from "Straight Arrow" label is entitled "CHAOS IN COLLEGE PARK", and will feature complete September 27, 1974 College Park, MD, tour opening show. Just as their previous 3 releases, this new CD will come in a deluxe package with a 16-page booklet containing many rare colour and black & white photographs from the actual show, as well as comprehensive sleeve notes with an "Elvis in 1974" overview, with detailed information about the concert itself and the September/October 1974 tour. The producers are aware of the fact that this show is one of the most controversial Elvis Presley concerts ever. Among the show highlights are surprisingly solid performances of "It's Midnight" and "How Great Thou Art". This recording comes from a newly acquired original audience recorded master tape that was transferred and professionally restored by using 24 bit technology for the best possible sound quality.

Excerpt from sleeve notes:
"Over the years, it has been reported time and again that the September 27th show was probably the most tragic Elvis concert ever. While this concert is by no means Presley at his best, we must say that we have heard worse. This recording shows that this concert does not live up to the myths surrounding this night. While there is no doubt that Presley was in trouble, his show is for the most part "business as usual", and he actually turns in a couple of very decent performances, like for instance a showstopping "How Great Thou Art".

Moreover, the audience is quite audible on this recording, and they appear to be having the time of their lives, from start to finish. It's interesting to compare this show to the one in the same city one day later. In fact, both concerts are rather similar, but surprisingly on the 27th, Elvis' voice seems less slurred between the songs and he is singing noticeably better for most of the time. Thus, another "Elvis Myth" is now laid to rest".

Tracklist:
01. Also Sprach Zarathustra - 02. Opening Vamp / C. C. Rider - 03. I Got A Woman / Amen - 04. Love Me - 05. If You Love Me (Let Me Know) - 06. It's Midnight - 07. Big Boss Man - 08. Fever - 09. Love Me Tender - 10. Hound Dog - 11. Bridge Over Troubled Water - 12. Polk Salad Annie - 13. Band Introductions - 14. Lead Guitar Solo (by James Burton) - 15. Drums Solo (by Ronnie Tutt) - 16. Bass Solo (by Duke Bardwell) - 17. Piano Solo (by Glen D. Hardin) - 18. Killing Me Softly (by Voice) - 19. Why Me Lord - 20. All Shook Up - 21. (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear / Don't Be Cruel - 22. Hawaiian Wedding Song - 23. How Great Thou Art - 24. Can't Help Falling In Love - 25. Closing Vamp / Announcements.

Ce concert si controversé sort enfin en son entier, il a parfois été écrit que c'était le plus mauvais concert d'Elvis, à l'écoute, on sent qu'Elvis n'est pas au top de sa forme, mais ce n'est en rien une catastrophe. A nouveau, nous pouvons constater qu'au niveau des concerts d'Elvis, tout a été dit, et souvent n'importe quoi. La bande d'origine provient du master qui a été transféré et restauré professionnellement en utilisant la technologie 24 bits pour un résultat optimal.

The August 23rd Midnight show was one of the best concerts of the season; among the highlights are great performances of ballads like "What Now My Love" and "My Way", as well as some superb rock'n'roll numbers like "Proud Mary", "A Big Hunk O'Love", "Little Sister / Get Back" and a fast version of "Polk Salad Annie".

This recording comes from an early generation copy of the original audience recorded mastertape, and the sound quality is excellent for an amateur recording, close to soundboard.

"Missing tracks" were added from another show from the same season; the August 13th, 1972 Dinner show. "For The Good Times" was Spliced together fom the August 23rd and August 13th recordings. As a bonus, a 1972 interview with John Wilkinson was added. This CD is set for release early December.

Premier cd du label Straight Arrow pour un Vegas, d'après la première génération du master d'origine, très bonne qualité sonore malgré que ce soit un audience.

Le bonus est constitué de l'interview de John Wilkinson par Tony Prince à Radio Luxembourg en 1972.
