The widely appreciated label Memphis Recording Service, or MRS for short, will release a new CD-set on January 27, 2023: MRS - Las Vegas Hilton Presents Elvis Opening Night 1972. This is 1 CD with Elvis' opening concert on Wednesday, January 26 1972 at the Hilton in Las Vegas. Also Sprach Zarathustra turned out to be a keeper during the opening and at the same time the song See Se Rider became the standard song as opener. Also during this show Elvis performed several songs for the first time : among others the strong American Trilogy. In addition, Elvis also sings several songs that were linked to his personal life at the time: You Gave Me A Mountain, It's Over, It's Impossible. All sung with a fairly autobiographical undertone. This, of course, was the time Priscilla had decided to leave Elvis. In March, Elvis would record the songs Always On My Mind and Separate Ways... Visually, something also changed: from this period Elvis wore more and more a cape on his jumpsuit, which made him look even more fantastic. In addition to the personal problems, there were of course also artistic highlights to come: the tour in the spring of which many recordings would be made for the documentary Elvis On Tour and of course the four shows in New York's Madison Square Garden. But now it's waiting for the next great release MRS - Las Vegas Hilton Presents Elvis Opening Night 1972!
