Elvis At 42: Still Dazzles Fans

Monday, August 24th, 2020



Let’s first explain what a ‘Matrix Recording’ is… A Matrix recording mix is a cunning mix of soundboard/multitrack recordings with audience recordings. Sometimes soundboard recordings can sound dull, and the main reason for this is that the sound engineer probably wanted to catch one particular aspect of the performance. This could be the singing voice of the artist, or one of the instruments. These soundboard recordings can miss a of of the ambiance that the audience there were experiencing. An audience recording mostly never sounds dull, but the quality of the singing voice of the artist is obviously of lesser sound quality. Mixing these two creates a whole new sound, and now you can enjoy the shows as if you were actually there!

Available now is the April 24th 1977 show from Ann Arbour Michigan as a matrix mix
