Additional information:

These are two live soundboard recordings. CD 1 contains the afternoon show, at the Mabee Center of Oral Roberts University, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on July 4, 1976 and CD 2 contains de Evening Show at Duluth Arena, in Duluth, Minnesota, on October 16, 1976. This release comes in a 3 panel 5 digipack.

 

CD 2 - Tracks 24-28 were recorded live at Dane County Coliseum, in Madison, Wisconsin, on October 19, 1976, Evening Show.

 

The Tulsa show was long time overdue and requested by fans for years now. Finally, we have it. It is a solid performance with a nice song line-up and Elvis is really having a good time on stage. No wonder, July 4, 1976 was National Day - 200 years after the Declaration of Independance was signed. Hence, the title of this FTD. Highlights: You Gave Me a Mountain, America (The Beautiful), An American Trilogy, Help Me, Hurt and How Great Thou Art. Definitely one of the best shows from this tour.

 

The Duluth concert is also really good. Elvis looks slim and trim, is focused on the music and delivers fine renditions of songs like Fever, Steamroller Blues, Hurt, It's Now or Never and Blue Christmas.

 

The bonus tracks from Madison are a nice addition and round up a great 1976 double CD pack. Thanks, Ernst and team!
