This double disc On Stage Season on the FTD label in the 7 "format contains two shows from Elvis' second Las Vegas season. More specifically the opening show of January 26 and the closing concert of February 23, 1970. So not the mid-season recordings as we know from the album On Stage. In the opening show Elvis moves through his set at an enormous tempo. Even a bit too fast, like in the song Sweet Caroline, the band plays at a good tempo, but when Elvis is singing really to fast, he can only start the song again, this time at a “normal” tempo. Also nice on CD 1 is the fact that Elvis speaks about his recently released album From Elvis In Memphis. And starts to sing True Love Travels On A Travel Road of this album. The disadvantage of CD 1 is the so-called microphone overload. This does not benefit the sound quality. But this disadvantage is more than made up for by CD 2. This has a good sound quality and only this CD is worth to purchase this release. Including track 14, Elvis sits down at the piano and starts the song Blue Berry Hill. Then Elvis laughingly says I used to be known as Fats Domino, but I lost some weight ... After which he brings Lawdy, Miss Clawdy. Furthermore, as the show draws to a close, Elvis talks about the upcoming concerts at the Houston Astrodome. The 16-page booklet contains a series of photos from this season and an essay by Ann Moses Marino. These historic soundboard recordings were made by Elvis' sound engineer Bill Porter at the request of Tom Diskin.
On Stage Season is a release you buy for CD 2.
