Elvis Let it Rock

Gravelroad Music likes to announce their latest upcoming release

This is the fourth deluxe digipack CD and last of our highly sought after series LAS VEGAS JAN/FEB 1971 engagement. Just like the previous 3 CDs in limited pressing.

This CD contains the complete closing show of February 23, 1971.
Twenty-two color photos of the same show and a beautiful and rare poster as a centerfold are used to make this a fabulous package Elvis 1971 style!
Audio has been restored to a more balanced sound and the missing rare first live version of "Help me make it through the night" is also included!
We believe, with our four releases to have captured Elvis at his best! In Vegas 1971

Great sound, Quality photos, Strong in-depth liner notes

About the show, the quality of performing is truly excellent, Elvis is committed to give an excellent show. Less talkative between songs until the last part of the show, where he start to talk and surprises us with his very first known performance of "Help Me Make It Through The Night", which he will record only a little while later that same year. Was it a try out? Much more background info you can find in the liner notes…

Definitive highlights of the show are "Polk Salad Annie", "How Great Thou Art","Bridge Over troubled Water", "Help Me Make It Through The Night" and the powerful "The Impossible Dream"!
What you can expect from us… Gravelroad Music stands for high quality releases, with very high expectations for both the audio and the packaging and background information.

On A Winning Streak!

On A Winning Streak! - From „booth tapes" Vol. 4
Coming out soon on Straight Arrow is the 3CD set "On A Winning Streak", featuring three strong shows as recorded on February 17 (DS + MS) and 18 (DS), 1973… which means that all of it was recorded within a day. This release documents what a strain it was on Elvis' creativity and general well-being to be performing under such a tight schedule for a whole month, but it also shows how well he actually coped under the circumstances. All three shows are tight, lively and entertaining, and you can really hear that the whole room was buzzing with excitement at his shows. All three shows are well-paced, featuring a solid selection of concert favorites as well as songs from the recent 'Aloha From Hawaii' television special. Elvis is clearly enjoying the interaction with his fans, and there is plenty of that here. Interestingly, he momentarily loses his patience with one loud fan, though he later says that he was "just kidding".

A fascinating release, featuring all three shows in surprisingly good audience recorded sound: in fact, these recordings are amongst the finest audience recorded shows out there. Everything can be heard clearly, including all of Elvis' comments, and the well-balanced and crisp live sound on these recording will make you feel like you are right there in the showroom enjoying the King in person. These tapes were recently rediscovered, we believe that you will agree with us that this is a great find and a real must, and not just for the hardcore collector. Another quality Straight Arrow release!

All the different camera angles have been edited to create a real professional movie.
All the footage has been digitally restored in matter to achieve the best result of image quality. All the footage includes matching audio from the original concert  in the way to get  a perfect sync between audio and image with speed correction of the original footage. Although the show is no  complete , the result believe us is very impressive, Elvis as you never seen..THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!!
