Elvis worked hard during this last Tahoe season in spite has not been an impressive vision he fought very hard to deliver a good show. The choice of songs was more varied with respect to the regular tour and the intimate showroom seemed to inspire Elvis to deliver longer and more solid shows.

The 05th May Evening Show here presented doesn’t make an exception Elvis delivered 18 solid songs reaching the top with the bluesy 'Trying To Get To You', the anthem 'America', and the very sensitive 'Hawaiian Wedding Song', at the same time in spite of the poor shape He still able to perform rockers like the classic 'Polk Salad Annie' and overall the fast 'Burning Love'.

We are happy to be able to present this great performance with a very good audio quality in order to be able to obtain a result that you can enjoy too. The ambiance tape is of very good quality, as you can appreciate both Elvis and the band and at the same time, you can feel and live the atmosphere of the intimate Lake Tahoe Showroom, where the limit of the ambiance became the force of the recording giving to you the possibility to listen to the great enthusiasm of the public.
