Bumps Are Gone But He’s Still King!


There’s a new CD out containing the Hartford, CT., July 28th 1976 show, which is previously unreleased in complete audience recorded form.

The Audionics label released parts of this show taken from soundboard source (CD ‘Across The Country’ in 2005). Unfortunately, a complete soundboard recording of this concert does not exist.

The EP Collector label has had a complete audience tape of very good sound quality in their vaults for many years and they have finally decided to release it.

This date is the longest and perhaps the best show from this particular tour. Among the concert highlights there are fantastic performances of Jailhouse Rock, America, Polk Salad Annie and Hurt. There is one special moment too, when Elvis sings Happy Birthday, to Kitty Kahane, daughter of his friend and comedian, Jackie Kahane.

This show was restored with great care and with a focus on not changing the integrity of the original monaural recording.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with concert reviews and a collection of images taken during the Hartford concert on July 28th 1976.
