March 27 - A Brand New Cadillac, Honey!

The Straight Arrow import-label announced the release of the double CD set v"A Brand New Cadillac, Honey!". It contains audience recordings of the 2:30 PM show in Long Beach on April 25, 1976 and the show in Seattle on April 26, 1976.

From the press-release:

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new double CD dedicated to Elvis' April ’76 tour. It was short but very good tour, with Tony Brown and Ronnie Tutt replacing Shane Kiester on piano and Larrie Londin on drums. The Long Beach, April 25th, 1976 afternoon show is previously unreleased. The Seattle, April 26th, 1976 show was first released by Millbranch Music ("The Bicentennial King Vol. 2", released 2010) from a rather bad, flat sounding tape source. Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copies of the original audience-recorded cassettess, which were not in circulation previously. Both shows were recorded by the same person. These enjoyable concerts were never before available in good sound quality… until now! Ask your dealer for sound samples. As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel digipak that includes photos taken in Long Beach (2:30 pm) and Seattle and newspaper reviews of both concerts. Again - it’s new Straight Arrow so you know what to expect!
