Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden by Elvis Presley
Of all the live concert recordings released during Elvis Presley's lifetime, none carried the historical significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June of 1972. His first performances in the Big Apple since the '50s, the 'King of Rock 'n' Roll' performed four sold-out shows at the famed venue, the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972 and sold in excess of 80,000 tickets in the process.
This 2LP reissue from Sony Legacy is culled from Elvis' legendary performance at the Saturday evening show, originally issued on a single LP by RCA Records on June 18, 1972, just eight days after the concert took place. The album was certified Gold less than two months later.
Featuring defintive live takes of such all-time classics as: "Proud Mary," "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin," "Polk Salad Annie," "All Shook Up," "Heartbreak Hotel," medley of "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear/Don't Be Cruel," "Love Me Tender," "Hound Dog," "Suspicious Minds" and many more!

Elvis never looked so good as he did when he did this show. It was fabulous and the album was out of this world. No other star had the magic that Elvis had, not even to this day. I'm "Rockin" Johnny Geib formerly of WEEF & WPJX & WVVX radio. I'm retired now and saw Elvis 4 times in my life.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
