Cat. No. 1969: ELVIS PRESLEY ~ SUCH A NIGHT IN PEARL HARBOR. MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE MRS 30025361. (IMPORT).

$29.95 inc GST ($23.22 )

THE CD IS RE-MASTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, PRESENTING ELVIS’S LAST CONCERT IN MARCH, 1961, BEFORE RETURNING TO THE STAGE 8 YEARS LATER! THIS DOCUMENTS ELVIS’S BENEFIT CONCERT RECORDED AT PEARL HARBOR IN HAWAII, TO AID OF THE USS ARIZONA MEMORIAL FUND, FOR THE SERVICE MEN WHO DIED THERE DURING THE JAPANESE ATTACK IN 1941.

 

LISTEN TO ELVIS AT HIS BEST! THE OBVIOUS CLARITY OF ELVIS’ ENJOYMENT IS APPARENT AS HE IS ONCE AGAIN ON STAGE, PERFORMING JUST HIS 3RD SHOW SINCE 1957. WITH ELVIS UNLEASHED AND LIKE A LIVEWIRE, HE SPONTANEOUSLY DELIVERS AN EXTRAORDINARY MUSICAL EXPERIENCE, WHICH IS HAILED AS ONE OF THE MOST THRILLING AND EXCITING OF ANY PRESLEY SHOW EVER!

 

ELVIS PERFORMS 15 SONGS AND SINGS EVERY ONE AS IF IT WERE THE FIRST TIME HE HAD EVER PRESENTED THEM TO AN AUDIENCE. THIS INCLUDES MANY #1 HITS AND INCLUDES CLASSICS THAT WERE NEVER PERFORMED PREVIOUSLY OR AGAIN SUCH AS “A FOOL SUCH AS I”, “I NEED YOUR LOVE TONIGHT”, “SUCH A NIGHT” AND MORE.

 

ALSO INCLUDED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, IS THE 30 MINUTE RADIO BROADCAST RECORDED IN HAWAII BEFORE ELVIS’ ARRIVAL. IT PROMOTED THE CONCERT FOR THE MEMORIAL FUND, PLAYING SELECTED TRACKS FROM “ELVIS’ CHRISTMAS ALBUM” AND “HIS HAND IN MINE” ALBUM, RELEASED AT THAT TIME. AS A BONUS, THE CD IS ACCOMPANIED BY A 100 PAGE BOOK THAT CONTAINS MANY RARE AND UNRELEASED PHOTOGRAPHS WITH EXTENSIVE AND INFORMATIVE LINER NOTES DETAILING ELVIS’ ARRIVAL AND PERFORMANCE.
