On this double CD on the FTD label, in the 5 "format, the two concerts of June 30, 1974 that Elvis gave in the Omaha Civic Auditorium, Omaha Nebraska. During the afternoon show Elvis wore the Blue Swirl Suit and during the evening show the beautiful Peacock Suit. The evening concert of June 30 was never released before. Nice detail in this show is the fact that Elvis sings Happy Birthday to Sylvia Shemwell of The Sweets. Also striking : almost at the end of the show Elvis asks to start the song My Way. What is exceptional in this period. The band starts the song, but unfortunately this is then interrupted after a musical effort of 30 seconds. Why is not clear. Charlie may not have the lyrics at hand. Because you hear some talk on the background, it may be the conversation between Elvis and Charlie. The downside of this release is that there was a shortage of recording tape during the evening show, so the end of the show was not recorded, so not available on CD 2.

Noteworthy of these concerts is the fact that there were originally no concerts planned in Omaha for the tour that eventually ran from June 15 to July 2, 1974. Until those in charge received a petition with 13,000 signatures to bring Elvis to Omaha for a concert. This was transferred to Parker, after which everything accelerated. In the end it turned into three (!!) concerts in Omaha. Which sold out in just four days. To indicate that also in 1974 there was a huge demand for tickets to see Elvis. This FTD - Elvis Omaha Nebraska '74 is a good release for fans of a mid-seventies Elvis concert.
