November 30 - Ignited From Japan With Love

Expected soon from the E. P. Collector import label is another release entitled "Make The World Go Away - From Japan With Love vol. 2". It contains the August 8, 1973 Midnight Show as recorded from the audience at the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV. This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with collection of images taken in August 1973. This is the last release from this label for 2016.

From the press-release:
Recorded live from the audience on the Las Vegas, NV, August 8th, 1973 M/S, the CD is subtitled "From Japan With Love Vol. 2“ because it was recorded by a member of a Japanese fan club.

The Las Vegas, August 8th, 1973 Midnight show is previously unreleased. This concert was never before available in good sound, until now! It was taken from a recently obtained first generation copy of an original audience recorded master cassette tape and digitally restored for your listening pleasure.

Elvis opened his 9th Las Vegas season on August 6th, he performed a total of 59 shows, closing on September 3rd - and unlike in February ’73, there were no cancellations. Elvis refreshed his repertoire with several new additions, like “My Boy” or “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and his concerts were longer. Elvis looked and sounded good and he gave an excellent performance on August 8th! In fact, this is a delightful concert and one that is warmly recommended. Elvis sings quite well, and his interplay with the audience is fun to listen to. He sounds in full control, like he was entertaining the crowd from his own living room.

Elvis Ignited

Due for release on March 17, 2017 from University Press Of Florida is the book "Elvis Ignited" The Rise Of An Icon In Florida" by Bob Kealing. 

From the publisher:
"I don t think there was a better time and place to be a teenager than in Florida in the 1950s. It was such a magical place. Elvis is part of what contributed to that excitement. Bob Graham, former Florida governor and United States senator Kealing tells us the story of what happened when Elvis arrived in Florida and what role the Sunshine State played in his life and musical career.

This is a critical era in the Elvis Saga. William McKeen, editor of Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay: An Anthology Presents a great picture of what it was like to be a touring musician in the 1950s and also of Florida at the time and how the culture was changed by the shock of Elvis. Joy Wallace Dickinson, author of Remembering Orlando: Tales from Elvis to Disney It was his most electric and influential time as a live performer. The young and hungry Elvis, the rising star, burst onto stages large and small sexy, controversial, brimming with talent and ambition. One lightning-hot year in Florida fueled his rise from novelty act to headlining megastar.
