Quietly, Elvis Presley's December 1976 Concert at Memorial Auditorium Was Officially Released
Only, as I went about researching that particular show, I discovered this: Two months ago, the long-passed-around soundboard recording was officially released by the Presley peoples on the Follow That Dream label, set up via a partnership with Sony BMG. (These recordings, never advertised, are "considered of interest to serious Elvis fans and collectors.") The Memorial show is actually the second disc of a $30 two-fer titled Elvis Showtime! Birmingham/Dallas '76. He damned sure didn't sound like a man who had but eight months more to live. Forthcoming in moments, something for your weekend listening pleasure.
