Elvis As Recorded Live In Huntsville '75

Out soon from the Revisited import label is the CD ‘Elvis As Recorded Live In Huntsville '75’. From the press release: A new CD release from the Revisited label with Elvis live at Von Braun Civic Center, Saturday May 31, 1975 (8:30 PM). Huntsville, AL. 

A great soundboard recording released only once before on a single disc many years ago. A show with great songs like ‘Hawaiian Wedding Song’ and ‘I'm Leavin'’. 

The beginning of the evening show was not recorded but as a bonus we've included recordings from the matinee show one day later (Sunday June 1, 1975, Huntsville, AL.), including ‘How Great Thou Art’ and a medley of early hits. Elvis was truly inspired by the superb reaction he received in Huntsville, selling out five shows. These are recordings from show number 3 and 4 in very good sound quality.

This is a limited edition soundboard release to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of this great event! Including a booklet with photos and information about these shows.
