Standing In The Rain

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017


Ampex is proud to present their latest release Standing In The Rain as recorded live at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY on June 24th 1973 at 3pm.

On this day, Elvis is performed his last show in a series of four sold-out concerts at this venue, much like he did just over a year earlier 32 miles away in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden. The audience was primed beyond measure as Elvis had not performed in the New York-tri state area since the previous year.

The setlists at these shows were similar to the recently aired Aloha From Hawaii TV special, with several variations, most notably a classic rock ‘n roll medley, How Great Thou Art and I’m Leavin’.

This show was previously released on the MxF label entitle Uniondale Hysteria, Final Day from a much inferior and different tape. The guys at Ampex found a brand new source, and the sound of this recording replicates exactly what the fans in the audience heard that night. It was recorded on high quality BASF tape, and has tremendous dynamic range considering the limitations of amateur equipment in those days. It captures the sound of Elvis’ show that evening in clear and brilliant sound. You will feel like you are right there in attendance.

This release is mastered directly from the original first generation audience recorded cassette, which has been carefully preserved in its vintage hard plastic case for 40 years. The CD will also feature a 16 page booklet, including liner notes and rare photos of Elvis in Uniondale.
