Cassette available on RCA (3892). NOTES: Full title: Elvis In Person At The International Hotel, Las Vegas, Neveda. Personnel: Elvis Presley (vocals); James Burton, John Wilkinson (guitar); Charlie Hodge (guitar, vocals); Larry Muhoberac (piano, organ); Jerry Scheff (bass); Ronnie Tutt (drums); Millie Kirkham (background vocals). Recorded live at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Neveda from August 22 to 26, 1969. Digitally remastered by Dick Baxter (September 1991, BMG Recording Studios, New York). By 1969, Presley was no longer an unwelcome upstart to conservative Vegas audiences. Rather, he was exactly what Vegas loves best: a long-established star who put on a very big show. ELVIS IN PERSON contains highlights of the last five nights of Presley's month-long stint at the International Hotel, and it documents his Vegas show in its nascent stages. For this engagement, Presley featured more of his own hits than he would in the future. Presley was also more enthusiastic about performing that he would later be, as the thrill of conquering audiences had not yet given way to the tedium of constant touring. For all these reasons, ELVIS IN PERSON is many fans' favorite Presley live recording. There are occasional odd moments--an operatic soprano caterwauling behind "Are You Lonesome Tonight?," unnecessary horn flourishes at the end of nearly every song--but they are easily overshadowed by the strengths of Presley and his rocking core band, led by guitarist James Burton. All the tracks on this album originally appeared on the two-record set FROM MEMPHIS TO VEGAS/FROM VEGAS TO MEMPHIS in 1969.
