This deluxe boxset focuses on the third tour of 1977. Elvis’ live performances in this year are often criticized and not without a reason, but he was still offering his fans a great time. The magic of seeing Elvis in person probably exceeded the fact that he often delivered a standard, and sometimes even mediocre, performance

The reaction of the audience is very telling. They scream, shout and get wild for their hero. Whilst listening to the recordings of these shows you cannot draw any other conclusion than that of the shows being below par. However, the charisma of Elvis was enormous, which probably made this go unnoticed by most of the fans present

This set mostly contains soundboard & multitrack recordings, but it also contains two rare audience recordings. These high quality audience recordings of the April 27th & 30th performances deserve a place in this boxset as they are both first class audience recordings remastered from scratch to achieve an optimal listening experience

This 6xCD set includes a wonderful booklet with many rare and unpublished photos
