'Las Vegas International Presents

ELVIS: September 1970'

MRS CD / Book

- Review by Nigel Patterson / Piers Beagley

A 2CD deluxe set that features a new previously unreleased soundboard from 2nd September 1970 and a bonus CD that covers the final rehearsals at the International Hotel on August 10th before the start of the summer festival.

In September 1970 Elvis was still excited to be back on stage and performing for his fans.

Newspaper reviews of his concerts wrote about the excitement and fun Elvis was having back on-stage.

The accompanying 40-page booklet of the CD deluxe includes rare photographs and memorabilia taken during these engagements along with introductory notes.

EIN's Nigel Patterson & Piers Beagley provide an in-depth review of this new MRS release

Compilation produced by Joseph Pirzada, Introduction notes by Bob French, design by Kev Reape. Audio Restoration and Remaster by Studio D.

EIN's Nigel Patterson & Piers Beagley provide a combined review of this new release

'Las Vegas International presents ELVIS: September 1970’ is the latest and final chapter of Joseph Pirzada’s recent  MRS series of book/ CD sets looking at Elvis live in Las Vegas.

The 2CDs are securely bound into the customary MRS hardback cover 40 page book, one CD at the front and one the back.

The Package
Once again the set is presented as a compact Book / CD combo with its 40 pages dedicated to Elvis’ Las Vegas 1970 summer season. This set is an interesting conclusion to MRS’s earlier triple-CD set 'Summer Festival 1970: The Rehearsals'.

The book design by Kev Reape is impressive capturing the energy and excitement of Elvis’ third Las Vegas season, the earlier part of which would be the focus of the MGM filmed ‘That’s The way It Is’.

Once again the front and back covers capture the sweat and passion of Elvis putting his whole soul into his performances. These shows really would be the peak of his live performances.  

This time the introduction is provided by Bob French where he explains,

“Most fans are very familiar with the movie and accompanying soundtrack album (Elvis - That's The Way It Is) associated with this season and saw first-hand how relaxed and seemingly assured he was during these shows. Yet there's no doubt that freed from the physical and psychological constraints placed on him by having to deal with a camera crew and recording technicians, once they had wrapped up their work, Elvis was free to concentrate on what he loved doing most of all: performing on stage and singing to a live audience, unencumbered by any distractions. He adopted a more free-wheeling approach to his performances and generally had great fun - often starting a song then abandoning it! - much to the delight of his audiences.

The accompanying audio from the 2nd September - previously unreleased - pays testimony to that fact and represents Elvis reaching the pinnacle of his success following his comeback in 1968 - all of which provided him with a springboard for his next challenge: to start touring the USA again (something he had not done since late 1957), as well as laying the ground for yet another Vegas season scheduled for January 1971.

It seemed that his resurrection as a recording artist and performer was at its peak point. What could possibly go wrong?”

It is hard to believe that photographers did not use more colour film while shooting Elvis on stage but just under half the pages are in colour with Elvis looking stunning in every shot.

The book includes two pages of candid photos of Elvis with his fans which helps capture the excitement of the season.

Highlights include some beautiful colour photos of Elvis rehearsing on August 4, the first rehearsal as well as images of Elvis in his blue shirt for the on-stage final August 10 rehearsal taken just hours before the Opening Show.

The book also features some interesting memorabilia such as John Wilkinson’s 1970 signed contract and annotated (by Felton Jarvis?) hand-written set list, plus other Sumer Festival souvenirs.     

Other delights are rare candid shots take at Elvis’ September 6th Dinner show, not forgetting the multiple pages of professional photos that capture the essence of Elvis live at his earlier summer season 1970 performances.

With the sad death of the great Ronnie Tutt last week it is wonderful to see two brilliant pictures of Ronnie Tutt and Elvis performing together - both of which demonstrate what a great team they made.  


The Music.  
It's been a long-time-coming since MRS announced their future release of a brand new previously unheard 1970 Las Vegas concert recorded on good quality soundboard. So with nothing but Audience recordings available after RCA stopped recording on August 13 1970 this newly-found concert is real revelation.

There can be no doubt that fans who are interested in this new release would already own copies of Elvis' "TTWII" RCA recorded August Las Vegas concerts. After all, Elvis' August 12 Midnight show is often referred to as his ‘Best-Ever’ performance.

However after the MGM cameras and RCA engineers went home Elvis relaxed - and away from the professional constraints of being put on camera he started having more fun with his performances.

Audience recorded shows such as the "Double Dynamite" August 19th performances already gave us a glimpse of Elvis’ later summer season shows and I expect what collectors were hoping for was Elvis less "TTWII" and more “loose-as-a-goose” and mah-boy, mah-boy, this show delivers exactly that! To be honest, the first time I listened to it I laughed out loud (a bit sad as I was the only one in the room!). What a blast, well worth the anticipation.

Once again MRS has converted the mono soundboard recording to "Stereo" and as it is a live performance the "Fake stereo" is pretty forgiving.

The joy here is that this previously unknown soundboard recording is of such good quality and there are plenty of fans out there who wouldn't realise that it isn't a multi-track stereo recording.

There's almost no tape hiss and the audio mix of musicians, backing-vocals and orchestra is near perfect. At times the tape does get pushed into some peak distortion – more noticeable on headphones than loud-speakers - but it is better than a lot of officially released soundboard recordings.  

Elvis collectors have also noted that this soundboard tape is of far better quality than some shows (ie mid-1975) that we have recently been getting from the official FTD label.

Strangely James Burton’s guitar is mixed to the left channel which makes no sense. Why would you do that in a fake stereo mix? I swapped my headphones around for more realistic listening. Similarly on the second rehearsal CD James Burton and the band are also swapped left<>right. This was surely a mastering mistake.    


CD1: The Concert: 2nd September 1970 Dinner Show - 57 minutes
Kicking off with a great stereo drum intro and screams from the crowd, Elvis powers in to 'That's All Right' and it's a truly rocking start. There’s the kind of power and energy of Elvis in 1969 showing right from the start, even if it’s September 1970.
This night Elvis was truly feeling high on life – and maybe other substances. :-)     

Ronnie Tutt’s family were in the audience and just as ‘I Got A Woman’ starts Elvis pauses to note, “Hello. Is that your kids shouting “hey Daddy” Ronnie?, Oh boy! I’m gonna bring in Gene Krupa tomorrow night!”

Elvis’ energy keeps the show going on a real high and with all this surplus energy and humour one has to wonder if the energy wasn’t medically aided.

Elvis segues ‘I Got A Woman’ briefly into ‘Amen’ stating “There you go. We don’t usually do that in this spot, we just did it tonight”.
This is fascinating since while Elvis tried out a brief verse of ‘Amen’ at his August 14th show, it was indeed possibly this very show that Elvis started performing his ‘I Got A Woman / Amen’ medley which he would continue for the rest of his career.

Afterward Elvis jokes, “Good evening and welcome to the Golden Nugget. My name is Johnny Cash”.
Elvis also jokes about Gatorade and keeping his whistle wet and explains that, “I met Colonel Chicken / Sanders / Parker” and then laughs at his own stupidity, “whoo, I like Colonel Chicken!”.

Elvis is in a top mood, laughing and joking with the audience who is obviously enjoying the show. There’s another bonus with this soundboard in it also having plenty of audience reaction in the mix. This makes Elvis’ crazy banter more enjoyable.

‘Love Me Tender’ is the usual kiss-the-girls routine. Again it is in good “stereo” with the orchestra, Sweet Inspirations and Ronnie Tutt’s drums nicely separated.
There is however some noticeable audio gating on Elvis’ vocal to raise it above the background, which does introduce some odd hiss at times.

‘I’ve Lost You’ starts roughly which causes Elvis to ask for it to be restarted. Sadly his joking mood and changing lyrics at the start doesn’t mean that it’s a great version.

‘I Just Can’t Help Believin’’ – always a favourite – is a delight for being taken at a slightly faster tempo than usual and with Elvis playing with the melody of the lines. Unfortunately Elvis loses the lyrics at the second verse and re-starts the song, “Charlie forgot the words” (a quick edit fixes this, which would have been a neat bonus for MRS to have added at the end).
Elvis is very involved in the overall production noting, “orchestra” at the middle-break and also adding a cool, “sing the song now, girls”.     
The second section really feels that Elvis is standing next to Charlie Hodge duetting – but in a good way – as he seems totally involved. A lovely addition to the collection.

‘You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’’ – By now Elvis is getting serious and this version is truly magnificent. Elvis pushes the call and response “listen to me, talking to you” - and again is totally engrossed in the music.  Some peak distortion creeps in to the loud sections but the power of Elvis’ performance is magnificent. There’s no “If this suit wasn’t so tight” joke in this version, just pure passion…  “I can’t go on… who-oh-oh”- A real highlight.

‘Polk Salad Annie’ – Keeping the power-level on high, Elvis gives this a hard workout. Nice stereo and the required Jerry Scheff bass-line. Elvis throws in some fun moves mid bass-solo teasing the crowd with, “Jones, Humperdinck, Glen Campbell ‘Hot damn, hiya’ all’.. whoo.. Lord”. The fake ending – with total silence – and re-start is very neat, followed by “sock a little Volkswagen” to me. Elvis ends up collapsed on the floor - and the audience loves every moment.

“Don’t get me, when I’m down. Better get up of the floor.. look, a nickel, a nickel! I thought it was for Polk Salad Annie.”

The Introductions were always going to be loose tonight.. “Charlie this is Jerry, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John…. Judas on the organ back there. They’re going to pull the plug, drop the hooks and beat the hell out of me!”

But the intros are short and sweet and with a “Let’s go down to Louisiana” the rockin’ ‘Johnny B. Goode’ helps get thing back on track.  

‘The Wonder of You’ “a record that came out this year” is another fine version with Elvis pushing out the lyrics while also playing with the melody – listen to Elvis singing along on James’ guitar solo - and afterwards adding, “I guess I’ll ne-e-e-ever know the re-e-e-ason why, you love me as you do”.  Elvis also pushes hard on the final note.   

‘Elvis talks about Heartbreak Hotel’ is a crazy discussion where he becomes distracted by the “little fat funky angels” and gets completely off track. “My mouth feels like it’s got a bail of cotton in it. It’s a crazy night, tonight”.  He was right!

After some teasing multiple false-starts to the song, “Too fast, I’m a nervous type of guy anyway!” Elvis then gives up and instead rocks into a stunning ‘One Night’ a track that he should have always kept in his set-list. Wouldn’t it have been great addition for ‘Aloha’?

Just as you hope Elvis is back on track he’s derailed again with a false start to ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ where he also considers ‘Jailhouse Rock’ but only getting as far as  “Warden.. ” before back to a rocking ‘Blue Suede Shoes throwing in some “Whole Lotta Shaking going on” into the mix. This was another medley that Elvis only started trying out later on in this season after the MGM cameras had left.

‘Hound Dog’ gets the usual 1970 TTWII “strip-your-gears” joke intro but with Elvis getting the giggles about the idea of “Ever see a Panther and a Tiger getting it on?” and is thrown away in a less-than-one-minute.

Luckily ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ – “It’d like to get serious for just a moment and sing a very beautiful song for you” – is sublime. Perhaps knowing how much fun he’s been having he puts a real power and sensitivity into this classic. The “Sail on silver girl” section harmonising with the Imperials is divine with Elvis giving it his all. The stereo mix here also works extremely well, with the orchestra, the drums, the piano, the backing vocals all very well placed in the mix.

Elvis puts in that 1970 summer-season power to ‘Suspicious Minds’ with some nice extra touches “Oh no, ‘cos honey, you know I’d never lie to you.... uhh-huuh, lord knows I wouldn’t do it”. You can easily imagine Elvis doing that thrilling ‘TTWII’ work out at the end.     

Elvis rightly gets a standing-ovation and with a quick kiss-the-girls ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ finale wraps up one stunning performance.

While this show is “loose-As-A Goose” it is truly memorable not only for the energy Elvis and the band were putting in later on at this 1970 Las Vegas Summer Festival but also because Elvis was having so much fun.

While this performance would probably have been released on the FTD collectors label rather than by SONY, no Elvis fan could really be disappointed in this newly discovered tape. After all we have no soundboard recordings at all from this all-important season. So it is a real positive that it can be released via EU public domain so that anyone can buy it. A gem of a concert, and one that I will be revisiting in the future.    

CD2 - Final Rehearsal Main Stage - 10th August 1970
The second CD of this set is obviously a ‘bonus treat’ in addition to the main course of the brand new concert. For the “general public” this might be something new and exciting but to Elvis collectors - and EIN readers - it is something that nearly all of us will already own in various forms, either from the classic 1991 bootleg ‘Hang Loose’ or via the 2011 FTD ‘Stage Rehearsal’ set and the more recent ‘TTWII’ deluxe set.

Right: The original tape legend from Elvis' 10th August renearsal. It was originally featured on the classic 1991 bootleg ‘Hang Loose’. You can see how the genuine tracklist has been altered on every release.


Previous releases have been disappointing in either audio quality, poor-editing or poor presentation and MRS had the real chance to give us the genuine rehearsal tape as originally recorded in great quality but it seems that MRS never read my EIN review about the original FTD release.

Perhaps it would have been so much better to use the original bootleg ‘Hang Loose’ tapes and in the original order.

However my main complaint about the ridiculous “Vic Anesini edits” where he added totally unnecessary audience applause to two songs has luckily been fixed at last. This is a real bonus.

On the previous official release ‘I Just Can't Help Believing’ was completely spoilt when the audience suddenly starts applauding as Elvis sings the intro. This made no sense for a rehearsal. At last with a new spliced beginning, it is a gorgeous version.  Like several of these featured rehearsals, Elvis never recorded this exquisite track in the studio so this version is unique with its pristine (no audience) quality. This version is also without the Charlie Hodge duet-vocal and Elvis delightfully sings a-long with the orchestra solo. Just Brilliant and the best version released so far.

Another gem is ‘Something’ which has also been fixed with a new edit that creates a proper start – again without the audience applause that featured on the FTD release. Now it feels like a true rehearsal. Once again this was a song Elvis never recorded for release in the studio and so this multi-track recording is the best we will ever have. Without performing to the audience Elvis again sings it very delicately and slowly - and it is a beautiful version. At the end of the original rehearsal tape Elvis says a nice "Alrighty, alrighty" knowing that they had got it perfect. Disappointingly MRS, like the previous FTD release, leaves off this cute Elvis comment.

Unfortunately for Elvis collectors MRS also copy other mistakes of the previous FTD releases.
The MRS versions feature the same fades in Elvis’ vocal that Vic Anesini did in his edits. This, for me, is a shame.  Previous TTWII rehearsals released by MRS have sounded clearer than the FTD versions but here the mixes sound very similar.

The audio however is not identical. MRS have added more compression and some echo, while the percussion is also sharper. The mix is also not identical with the Backing Vocals being more centred whereas on the FTD mixes they are right channel biased.    

It would have been so much better to use the original bootleg ‘Hang Loose’ tapes and in the original order. I didn’t like the fake order that FTD originally did in their track selection and the same playlist is used here. Why?

My previous complaints also include...
- The note-perfect ‘You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me’ chosen as the first track which is nearly identical to the later evening’s concert version but minus the audience applause and interaction. A better rougher “rehearsal” track would make a better introduction.  
- The Unnecessary vocal-track edits on
a) ‘Polk Salad Annie’ to remove Elvis’ rather whacky comments like "Made the alligators turn queen" and "Spiteful, overweight old woman" @1.40 by fading out Elvis’ microphone track.
b) ‘Bridge’ with Elvis’ comment, "What you gonna do?" @2.50 faded out
c) ‘You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'’ Vs2  with Elvis’ comments "is it back there?" (@00.20) and to Jerry Scheff, "why don’t you hold the bass right here?" (@00.38) both removed which is a shame as they both help create that genuine rehearsal feel.

The POSITIVES however are
-    ‘Sweet Caroline’ another song that Elvis never recorded for release in the studio and this multi-track recording is a very fine attempt.
-    ‘You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' (Vs.1) – A superb version with a fabulous mix and Elvis imparting pure emotion as only he could - listen out for his delicious "uuumm" @3.00.
-    ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ as a truly impressive rehearsal for everyone on stage - and as Elvis notes at the end, "Damn right, son!"
   ‘Patch It Up’ – this version ROCKS!
-    ‘You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'’ Vs.2  where Elvis puts his soul into another very strong vocal with his voice well-balanced against The Sweets call and response. Brilliant for that and the clarity of the mix it is a lovely version – listen out for Elvis’ fabulous intake of breath @3.40!

The CD continues with six extra Bonus tracks but these are all similar to previous releases.
Do fans really want to hear “Don’t Cry Fatty, get up off your ass again” or ‘I’ve Lost You’ with Elvis’ vocal missing - or another lesser version of ‘Something’ with audio-flutter?  
With better rehearsals of the same songs already included - and in better quality - these seem a little superfluous.

Having said that, the final track ‘Twenty Days and Twenty Nights’ only ever sung once by Elvis in concert at the August 12 Dinner show is perhaps the cleverest addition since it creates a neat finale to the whole set and is not featured anywhere else on this set.
“We better show Joe that ending - Right” says Elvis.

EIN NOTE: The live September 2nd 1970 concert was such a stunning find by MRS that it is only the naysayers, jealous that FTD didn’t discover this first, who are bad-mouthing this release. If released by FTD they would be saying that it was the discovery of a lifetime!    

Overall Verdict: A brilliant package and one that Elvis collectors have been longing for. A brand new unknown, good quality soundboard of Elvis live in 1970 at the peak of his live renaissance.  Not only that, but it also shows how Elvis started to relax and really enjoy himself once the MGM cameras were turned off.  This live recording truly adds something new to Elvis’ 1970 live on-stage musical legacy that previous RCA / MGM recordings did not include. While I have my issues about whether Elvis collectors really need the second CD of rehearsals, mainstream purchasers will no doubt enjoy hearing more of the hard-work that Elvis put in before this legendary Las Vegas season to help create such stunning live performances. Selling for the same price as recent FTD live double-digi-packs this new MRS release is an essential purchase for any Elvis fan.

'Summer Festival 1970: The Rehearsals' In-Depth Review: MRS's new triple-CD set 'Summer Festival 1970: The Rehearsals' was released last month.
The CDs contain rehearsal highlights from one of the most memorable periods in Elvis’ career - his captivating performances at The International Hotel Las Vegas in the summer of 1970. With remastered audio and accompanying 40-page booklet the package is aimed at the general public, plus Elvis collectors who could not afford last year's FTD fan club deluxe release.
Elvis’ glorious rehearsals on 24 July at RCA studios are the real key to this release. Twenty seven classic performances and with Elvis not only rehearsing the familiar songs we would all come to know from the MGM movie but also songs he would never perform on stage.

EIN's Nigel Patterson and Piers Beagley check out this new collection and discover some neat surprises along the way.

(CD REviews, Source;ElvisInformationNetwork)

MRS 'Elvis:Back In Living Stereo' in-depth Review: The new MRS set contains 6CDs of essential 1960-1962 master recordings, plus rare alternate outtakes - including plenty of officially unreleased material - and all of the personal home recordings Elvis made during the 1960s.
The 100 page book, with text from Gordon Minto, includes rare unpublished documents and photographs, supported by a comprehensive text discussing each of Elvis’ RCA studio (non-film) recording sessions held during 1960-62.
Musically the packed cds - over seven hours - present a stunning look at Elvis recording in the early sixties before the shine wore off. The "Master" sessions nicely contrast with the looser "Outtakes" discs and with Elvis getting even more uninhibited on the Home Recordings. - Very unihibited with a certain Nancy Sharpe!

But with so much thrown into the mix, and some tracks in poor audio quality, have MRS packed "Too Much" into the one release.

Go here as EIN's Nigel Patterson & Piers Beagley check out the positives and negatives in their in-depth review.

'Elvis - Made In Germany’ In-Depth Review: The new MRS 'Elvis - Made In Germany – The Complete Private Recordings’ 4CD set contains more than 3 hours of the private recordings Elvis made while off duty in Germany when he was serving as a soldier in the US army during the 1958 -1960 period and, includes rare tracks from a recently discovered tape comprising over an hour of unheard personal recordings.
The 152-page hardback book contains rare photographs and documents plus a comprehensive text provided by Gordon Minto, which discusses each of Elvis’ RCA studio (non-film) recording sessions held during 1957-58, before focusing on the private recordings he made in Germany.
The BONUS CD features the essential RCA studio masters from 1957-58.

With such an expansive book, along with hours of Elvis jamming with his friends in Germany, there is plenty to discuss as well as finding out what extra material this set contains over the official releases.
