I Walk The Line

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

iwalktheline

It’s August 1970, the recordings for the MGM movie That’s The Way It Is were finished and Elvis still has more than 3 weeks to go at the Las Vegas International Hotel before

starting another short (but busy) 1 week’s tour.

Elvis was in great for which resulted in the magnificent August & September performances. Unfortunately the only soundboard/multitrack material that has seen the light of day are the  That’s The Way It Is  performances.

Lucky enough these audience recordings survived!

The August 14th 1970 show has always been considered a very remarkable show, especially as Elvis is singing some unusual songs, like the two Johnny Cash songs: I Walk The Line and Folsom Prison Blues. The show had some volume issues as appeared on the original tape, probably because of hiding the recorder.  This has been corrected where possible. All performances have been re-edited and remastered and speed corrected where necessary.

Also featured is the original August 10th, stage rehearsal remastered from scratch using an original transfer of the reel. Without any edited or added intros or outros, just as recorded! A wonderful improvement to the original release from the ’90s!

These shows are too good to be missed in any collection!
