January 03 - The Boston Garden - Deluxe Box Set

The Gravel Road Music import-label announced the January 2022 release of the Deluxe 168-pages book / CD / DVD / Blu-ray set ‘The Boston Garden – November 10, 1971’.

From the press release: The 168-pages contains over 150 rare and unknown photos of the Boston concert, from private collections, mainly in color and also the unedited news reviews (the good and the bad ones), personal stories and little known facts on this concert.

For the first time, a brand new transfer from the soundboard tape was made for this release of the concert. It unveils much more detail and you will hear things you previously may not have noticed. The sheer richness and fullness of the audio is amazing. The idea of a mono recording is gone! And the best thing is, this is the real deal! 

You’re wondering, “Do gold CDs sound better? Are they really that much better than regular CDs?” Short answer: “You bet!”. The fact is that the gold disc's aural improvements are audible under any circumstances. Yes they can be played in any CD / DVD /  Blu-ray player. 

To us, this concert doesn’t need any enhancements to overwhelm the listener, it is the first row with Elvis and 15,000 fans at the Boston Garden! It sounds all new. There was additional work but it all started with the transfer and we loved it! It’s a thrill to hear it like this. 

We included due to the large demand the footage of Boston and the November tour also in HD on Blu-ray, also from a new transfer of the material. Almost 2 hours and yes, it includes little bit of new footage too. The very first release in High definition! 

We’ve chosen to use dual-layer DVD to have the best possible quality on a DVD. As a bonus we added a compilation of Boston and Tuscaloosa to have a more enjoyable viewing experience of the Boston concert. Although priority has been given to the historical content. So you’re good to go either way!
