Elvis Week 2010 tickets went on sale for the general public today.
Happy Birthday Desiree
The Virgo import label announced the release of their CD "Happy Birthday Desiree" containing reissues of two Las Vegas concert recordings.
According to the press-release of this CD both concerts were recorded on the birthday of Elvis' first-born daughter, Desirée. On august 24. 1969, during the midnight show Elvis was in top form. He was the King again. But without his 11 years old daughter he was lonely. 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' sounded very sincere on this night. He sang it from his heart...
The next date is august 24, 1970. During the dinner show he didn't forget his daughter's 12th birthday and sang 'When The Snow Is On The Roses' for the first and the last time, for Desirée. This show wasn't recorded professionally, but fortunately a member of the audience recorded it in fair quality.
