Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Cincinnati, (OH), October 16, 2021

Thanks for a great review - it's great to hear that Elvis' singing is in fine form. I too noticed a slowness in his delivery of recent times where he lagged behind the accompaniment and it got quite irritating after amore than a couple of numbers. Shame about the response to the crowd though - you'd...

Don’t think he played Hammersmith in 1982 so maybe on of the TKO shows from 1983? The BBC recorded one of those (17th October 1983) if I recall correctly for their In Concert Radio One broadcast series!

Re: 40 years since Elvis played his second gig in Ireland , in Macroom, Co. Cork

Still seems there might have been a professional recording of the whole show made . I’m increasingly frustrated- what’s the point if keeping these pro shows under wraps ( shows such as second El Mocambo, RAH with the RPO, the second Palamino show from Feb 1979!) They’re unlikely to ever garner more ...

Re: live in London 1995

That's really interesting, David. There's never ( to my knowledge) been anything like a transcription LP or disc from this concert available as far as i can recall so these are VERY rare items. Any idea how much they went for ?
