Tucson, Arizona 1972

Tucson, Arizona 1972

This CD contains an audience recording from Tucson, November 9, 1972 (8:30 PM show) recorded at the Community C Arena in Tucson, Arizona, just a few months after the show on the recent Follow That Dream release ''Summer Festival'' (August 11, 1972).

The show is a pleasant one to listen to, the tape is o.k. But since there is nothing too special on this CD we'll probably won't pick it up again, we'll get the FTD release ''Summer Festival'' which only has a few differences from this set list.

The track listing: 2001 Theme / C. C. Rider / I Got A Woman / Until It's Time For You To Go / You Don't Have To Say You Love Me / You Gave Me A Mountain / Polk Salad Annie / Love Me / All Shook Up / Heartbreak Hotel / Blue Suede Shoes / The Wonder Of You / Love Me Tender / One Night / Teddy Bear - Don't Be Cruel / Little Sister - Get Back / Hound Dog / I'll Remember You / How Great Thou Art / Suspicious Minds / Introductions / For The Good Times / A Big Hunk O' Love / Fever / I Can't Stop Loving You / Johnny B. Goode / Can't Help Falling In Love / Closing Vamp.



Heartbreak Hotel (Chinese Release): Another “official” release from the Hong Kong area we found on eBay. Is it worth the few dollars these releases cost?

Design

Again a great package to look at. A well-known image, Elvis’ name in 3D and two picture discs. We can’t help but wonder how someone who can make such an effort of the artwork makes such a mess of the text. We found the following “new” tracks on this CD: “Hunt Dog”, “Prisone Rock”, “Crying In The Church”, “I Just Can’t Help Believe In”, “Suspicious Minds”, “Do In The Best I Can” and “Something Blue” … but on playing these “new” tracks we found that they are all songs we know … that was why these titles looked so familiar.

The back cover mentions all rights reserved for: Hong Kong, China, Malaysia and ... Canada. But several other sentences are not complete either ... it shouldn't be too hard to check the text.

Content

The audio of this HDCD is supposed to be “DSD”, it features the logo, but we can’t hear it … the selection of tracks is a good one, besides the tracks mentioned above (guess you can figure out the original titles) it is a good selection featuring only good songs. “Hard Headed Woman”, “She’s Not You”, “Devil In Disguise”, “Burning Love”, Always On My Mind”, “I Want You I Need You I Love You and “That Someone You’ll never Forget” just to name a few. And if you like “Suspicious Minds” you’re in for a treat, the first disc of this 2 CD set features it twice, in a version with and a version without the fade-out in the end.

Conclusion

As with all the previous ones, consider it a gimmick release in your collection, looking at the price (they sell as cheap as $0.99 on eBay) it can be fun to collect them and have some of Elvis’ greatest tracks compiled in a different order giving you another compilation to choose from.
