  • Elvis : Rocks The Hilton

Between 2007 and 2016 Straight Arrow has released 20 of the so called sound booth recorded concerts. Starting with "Kicking and Rolling" in 2007, "Faded Love" and "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" in 2010, we decided to create a miniseries called "From the booth tapes." From 2013 to 2016 we have released 9 volumes, and now the right time has arrived to introduce the volume 10.

The August 20th, 1973 Midnight show sound booth recording was first released by the legendary "Fort Baxter" label on "A Profile - The King On Stage Vol. 1" box set in 1995, since then it has been re-released several times but never from the original source and totally complete - until now! The pitch was incorrect on all previous individual releases of this show.

The August 31st, Dinner & September 2nd 1973, Midnight shows were released (by our own sub-label called "Vegas Strip") in 2008 on "Getting Down The Business" & "High Spirit In Vegas" CDs. The sound of these CDs was speed-corrected by one of our colleagues back then, but unfortunately, the pitch was still not right.


 
For our final release all 3 shows came directly from the RCA tape duplications chromdioxide compact cassettes. You can see the reproductions of individual cassettes on the CD artwork.
Please note that the August 31st, Dinner show was mislabeled on the cassette as the August 30th Dinner show. All 3 shows were meticulously   pitch-corrected by a professional musician.
We were able to edit the missing parts of August 31st Dinner and September 2nd Midnight shows, using another source recorded by our dear friend from the UK. These tapes were never in circulation and they are of an excellent quality.

We have repaired the incomplete "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "How Great Thou Art" from the August 31st, 1973 Dinner show to make it complete.
As usual, this release is presented in a deluxe triple digipack with a collection of images taken on and off the stage during Elvis' 1973 Las Vegas Summer season.
 
If you have enjoyed our previous "From the booth tapes" releases, we believe that you will love this one as well. Ask your local audio vendor for trials!
