February 20 - In The Ghetto

The Straight Arrow import record label announced the release of 'I
n The Ghetto', featuring the Friday, February 19th 1971 Midnight Show as recorded from the audience at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.

Publicity stated: Straight Arrow is very pleased to bring you, as a first for the label, concert from January / February 1971 season: The Las Vegas February 19, 1971 Midnight Show.

This concert was previously released 13 years ago in very bad sound quality on the “Setting The Season” double CD.

Straight Arrow was fortunate enough to obtain recently recovered 1st generation copy of the original reel to reel audience-recorded tape of this show, coming from collection of British fan Rex Martin. This historic concert was never before available in good sound quality - until now! Every second was enhanced to achieve the optimal listening experience. The sound was remastered to the correct speed. If you have enjoyed our previous 1971 CDs, we believe that you will love this one as well. 

Presented in the usual Straight Arrow fashion with the top notch digipak including the photos of Elvis in Las Vegas 1971 and local press reviews, this new release is another beauty that you must not miss! The Straight Arrow team is always looking for new, unreleased audience-taped shows and for better quality versions of the previously released recordings. If you have such unique tapes, even damaged or broken, do not hesitate to contact us through your local dealer!
