On Fire In Florida – 40 Years After Vol. 2

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

OnFireInFlorida

Two great concerts recorded on Saturday, February 12th 1977 at the Sportatorium, Hollywood, Florida, and on Sunday, February 13th 1977 at The Auditorium, West Palm Beach.

Straight Arrow is pleased to bring you a new 2xCD dedicated to Elvis’ February ’77 tour.

The February 12th show in Hollywood was first released in 1994, 23 years have passed since then and now is the right time for a proper re-release. Straight Arrow went back to the original cassette and restored the show from scratch.

The West Palm Beach show from February 13th was previously released from an incomplete soundboard source.

Our COMPLETE recording has been taken directly from a previously unreleased original audience-recorded mastertape. Both shows were recorded by the same person.

In spite of Elvis’ unhealthy look especially at the beginning of tour, his concerts were solid and playlists were variable, incl. some rarely performed songs, actually, it was best tour of 1977.

As usual, this new release will be presented in a beautiful 4-panel double digipak that includes photos taken in Hollywood and West Palm Beach, plus newspaper reviews of both concerts.
