  • Night of the Dragon
Wednesday, August 28th 1974 Dinner & Midnight shows, Las Vegas Hilton, Las Vegas, NV.
Label:  Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2020-63-02
Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' Summer Las Vegas '74 season, which was always rated as controversial due to Elvis in-between-songs comments in several shows. Nevertheless, musically, all shows were very good. Straight Arrow has released only 2 shows so far: "Karate Fever" CD (August 31st, 1974 D/S in 2010) and "Stormy Weather Ahead" 2CD (September 2nd, 1974 D/S in 2017).

August 28th recordings are coming directly from the recently discovered new sources; the first generation copies of the original audience-recorded mastertapes, never before in circulation! These fascinating, previously unreleased concerts were never before available in such an excellent sound quality!

Both play lists included several songs unique to this season: "It's Midnight", "Big Boss Man" and funky "If You Talk in Your Sleep," the latter with a karate demo midway. His song selection demonstrated his expertise in a great variety of musical genres: the sexy styling of "Fever," the poignancy of "I'm Leavin'," and the feel-good of two Olivia Newton John songs "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and "Let Me Be There." Most of all, perhaps, Elvis touched first base musically with the stirring performances of "How Great Thou Art." Worth to mention is the rare inclusion of "My Boy" which was presented only once in 1974 (by request).
As usual, this release is presented in a deluxe 4-panel double digipack with a collection of images taken on stage during Elvis' Summer Las Vegas '74 season.

If you have enjoyed our previous August / September '74 releases, we believe that you will love this one as well.
