August 26 - Burning Hot Tonight

The Straight Arrow import-label announced the release of "Burning Hot Tonight" containing an audience-recording of the August 24, 1972 Dinner Show performance, as recorded at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV.

From the press-release:
Coming out soon is the new Straight Arrow single CD titled "Burning Hot Tonight", featuring the Las Vegas, August 24th, 1972 Dinner show. This is a previously unreleased mono audience recording in remarkably good sound. It is taken from a recently found source which has never been in circulation (however, an alternate recording in inferior quality is out there, but this new source is far better quality). Straight Arrow's sound man was able to improve the sound quality noticeably. Ask your local dealer for samples!

The dinner show from August 24th, 1972 is another topnotch performance by Elvis. He’s right in the middle of the engagement, with still about two weeks left, but he delivers the goods and puts his soul especially into the power ballads.

As usual, this release is presented in Straight Arrow's standard deluxe digipack with photos taken at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel in August/September 1972. It was designed by one of the best graphic artists in the Elvis world.
