Elvis Presley / Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis legacy edition

recorded live

Sony’s RCA/Legacy Recordings will reissue Elvis Presley‘s 1974 ‘homecoming’ live album Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis as an expanded two-CD Legacy Edition on 17 March 2014.

This 40th Anniversary release will feature tracks left off the original vinyl record, as well as a significant amount of previously unreleased material. The unissued work is largely made up of a complete “test run” of the live performance held two days before the actual concert. According to Sony this was recorded in mono and “drenched in the reverb Elvis preferred”!

Appended to this test run on disc two are five intimate tracks cut at the RCA Studios in Hollywood on August 16, 1974. These were originally intended as reference recordings for an upcoming Las Vegas engagement and three of them are previously unreleased.

Elvis Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis will include a 24-page booklet featuring the usual rare photos, previously unseen memorabilia, new liner notes, etc.
