February 12 - Last Stint At The International

The earlier announced import CD "Last Stint At The International" from the Straight Arrow import-label has been released. This CD contains audience-recordings of both the Dinner and Midnight show as recorded on August 29, 1971  in Las VegasThis release is presented in a deluxe digi-pack, filled with rare images taken at the Las Vegas International hotel in August, 1971.

From the press-release:

This Las Vegas season is still poorly documented, so we know that many fans will be delighted with this release. Elvis delivers the goods with two no-nonsense shows, from an engagement that marks the end of an era. From '69 until this point, Elvis had created so much magic with his shows at the International. Not long after this engagement, the International was sold to the Hilton group. The hotel was renamed, and, oddly enough, some of the magic that was synonymous with Elvis at the International disappeared. From this point onwards, his performances in Vegas became very much a case of 'hit and miss'. Let's go back and touch the past, put the CD in the player and let's enjoy one more dose of the original magic of Elvis at the International.
