We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound and of Elvis, keeping his vocal power up in the central mix and at the same time trying to give a great definition to the background music. The Tape is almost complete, missing a little part of the Life Story dialogue , while we have been able to include Can’t help falling in Love from a different source of the same show in the matter to give to the show the deserved completeness. So enjoy our work and realize: this is one of the best possible audience recording of this season you can find all around!
