Elvis: Hot August Night | FTD CD | August 25, 1969 | Midnight Show [Stereo]
- Sold Out/Deleted
FTD's must-have release, Hot August Night : FTD CD : August 25, 1969 : Midnight Show (Full Stereo), includes the complete live recording from the midnight show, August 25, 1969 and is presented in 7" the Classic Album format with 12-page 4-color booklet.
Elvis was in fine form on this 'Hot August Night' of the 25th of August 1969, a performance perhaps never to be beaten. For those that only read the summery of reviews, I can be quite clear, this concert is without doubt the best live recording released to-date of Elvis Presley in 1969, and is one of the best concerts Elvis Presley ever performed - both in sound quality and performance! Why? I could say, listen to it and you will agree, but I offer you an interesting fact, it was from this concert that RCA chose to use seven  of the tracks to make up the original 12 track 'Elvis In Person' album in 1969. This is 58% of the albums tracks. And this is from the good number of concerts recorded of which several have been released on CD by FTD.
