A Song For Sheila


Expected soon from the EP Collector label is another exciting new release entitled A Song For Sheila containing the Las Vegas, August 29th 1974 Dinner show.

Elvis opened his 11th Las Vegas season on August 19th and he performed a total of 27 shows, closing on September 2nd. Once again, Elvis revisited his live repertoire based on previous seasons and he included several tracks from the December ’73 recording sessions, and he also added songs like Softly As I Leave You and If You Love Me (Let Me Know). Elvis’ new love, the beautiful Sheila Ryan, was present and he sang the rarely performed Early Morning Rain for her (he sings the complete song).

This show is previously unreleased except for 7 songs released from a soundboard source by the FTD label (It’s Midnight). This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape and it’s packaged in a nicely designed digipak with a great collection of quality images taken in August 1974.
