ELVIS PRESLEY
Love American Style [Gravel Road Music GR CD 7404-2, 1CD]

Live at the Milwaukee Arena, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; June 28, 1974 (Evening Show). Fairly to very good soundboard.

Gravel Road Music press notes:

“On April 25, 1974, The Journal ran a four-paragraph story on Page 15 of the first section under the headline, ‘Elvis To Be Here In June 28′ [with] a one-head column shot of Elvis…” This was the only announcement, no printed ads, No TV commercials.

It was sold out! Two months in advance 11,800 seats!

Even today fans who heard the concert say: “It was one of the best shows ever of 1974.” All reviews on this show were raving, but it took almost 13 years to redo this hard-to-find and rare show justice and made available again to the fans.

The concert is now included on Elvis - Love American Style, a deluxe hardcover book with 100+ pages and many (80+) amazing beautiful page size photos of the show with the light blue “Phoenix” pattern jumpsuit, essential liner notes, background information and news reviews. The concert is fully re-mastered audio. (The audio was taken directly from the original soundboard tape transfers made in 2004.) Limited to 550 copies worldwide.

  3. Elvis didn’t change his set list much the last years of his life, so you judge these by the band, strength of his voice, etc. His band could always, always cook and Elvis seemed into the show, going through a lot of these oldies at near-breakneck speed.

  4. I would note that any Elvis fans in the Milwaukee area probably heard about his big concert in Dallas Texas just the month before in March. So they probably jumped at the chance to see him in their city. Despite his lower interest in rock circles at the time, Elvis was still riding a big Country and Nostalgia Oldies wave.

  5. I also will say that Elvis probably has had one of the most enduring loyal fan base, even to this day, especially among women. He was nothing if not charismatic.

  6. Classic… it amazes me the amount of SB Elvis out there. I am sad he went premature, however - he wasn’t as bad as people made him out to be… what would Jim Morrison sound like in 1994 if he lived ?

  7. jim woulda prob become a lounge singer in vegas not too far removed from the bill murray skit that he did on snl in the 70s. while i liked elvis when i was a kid it was only later on that i lost a little respect for him when i found out he never wrote a note and 100% of everything was essentially covers. while thats ok to a point i guess since ppl like sinatra did that too and for the most part so did joe cocker and i love cocker to death and while im not a big fan of michael bolton his best work isnt anything he ever wrote. the same goes for many singers out there.. they are best known for their covers not their original material. paul young is another one. sure he did some writing but it was god awful. when they sang songs other people wrote.. wow!
    i have 1826 elvis songs and in one folder over 50 cds etc. i have 100s of his shows. imagine if i was really a huge fan? any time a sbd or very high end recording is offered ill dl it.

  10. I held Elvis’ hand. I tuned his guitar. He was near, I was far. Loved Me Tender. Love Me True. He covered me on the crappah. Stankeroo. 100’s of hours. Bootlegs galore. Makes me wonder. Where for art thou, Darthie? Why, he’s at Graceland, of course! Standing in line for a soda, like everybody else. In Blue Suede Shoes. An ELVIS impersanator, no doubt.
