All recordings presented on this CD are previously unreleased. The February 13th, 1973 dinner show is completely new even to die-hard Elvis fans. It was never in circulation and it is taken from an original 'booth recording', made from a booth close to the stage and PA speakers. It is remarkably superior to usual audience tapes.
As a bonus, more of SOUNDBOARD tracks from the Dinner Show of February 10th, 1973 are included. Only part of this show was recorded, using a bass-heavy mix, possibly as a guide for future Fender bass players if Scheff left the Elvis Presley Show. Other tracks from this concert were used as a bonus on our 'Aloha Jerry!“ release. Once again, this is a previously unknown recording.
This release is presented in deluxe digipack with live and candid photos taken during January / February ’73 Vegas season and with appropriate liner notes. If you have enjoyed 'Aloha Jerry!' then you will be not disappointed by 'Echoes Of Aloha'!
