Las Vegas, January 28th, 1971
It's January the 28th of 1971 and the crowd is ready for it. Everyone is still in some kind of a drunkenness, when he did songs like There Goes My Everything and Make The World Go
Away. Another song, Only Believe was also on the setlist that night before. So, this is a big promise for this concert.
Well, the King must have thought: Now you hear 'em, now you don't.
Just 2 days in his fourth Vegas month the surprises have taken place for standards like You Don't Have To Say You Love Me and Sweet Caroline and
The Wonder Of You. Songs which all debuted in 1970.
Okay, Elvis brings the songs with a lot of spirit, I have to say that, but everyone is waiting for that special spark. The one moment he and his band perform the almost impossible.....When that moment
finally comes, the show's over. He finishes with The Impossible Dream, a song he just knows from TV and LP. The Broadway version of 'Man Of La Mancha' must have been unknown to Elvis. His lack of
theatre education makes him overact in
'The Quest' and he seems to get away with it. The song's hard as a rock and the audience respond is overwhelming, as expected. The curtains goes down and he rushes upstairs, with the elevator for
Personnel Only, way out of his league...... Would Priscilla have been waiting for him between the satin sheets, or was it already someone else?
Who knows and who cares? Not me, that's for certain. Only the music counts.
Though the show is just 3 quarters of an hour, Presley keeps us captured here, even after 32 years he does.
A good show, a good cover and quite good sound. So, what took you so long?
