This album was recorded live in February, 1970 at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. This version of the CD is the originally released version, and you should consider buying the newer CD with added tracks which wouldn't fit on an LP (hence the original configuration.) Most of the songs are performed with energy, but some of the songs Elvis chose to perform left me scratching my head, especially "Yesterday," the loathsome "Sweet Caroline," and "Proud Mary" all hits for others that would have better been left alone by Elvis. The highlight of the CD is without question "Release Me." I think this is the strongest performance of this song that I have ever heard. Also strong are "C.C. Rider" and the amusing food-inspired "Polk Salad Annie," a song which is simultaneously funny yet cantankerous.
On balance, I think "Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite" is a better Elvis live album, but this one is worth listening to, especially for the unbelievably powerful version of "Release Me."
