The Final Curtain [Boxcar, CD5/6]

Disc 5 - Live at the Dane County Coliseum, Madison, WI; June 24, 1977. Very good soundboard. Slight muffle Tracks 514-517. Disc 6 - Live at the Market Square Arena, Indianaplis, IN; June 26, 1977. Very good audience recording.

Recently, an Elvis boxset of 1977 shows, The Final Curtain - featuring six DVDs and six CDs, was released by Boxcar. While fans appreciated the sumptious packaging, it was the soundboard quality of the shows that was the main attraction. Five of the CDs were sourced from soundboards and Disc 6, featuring the Indianapolis June 26, 1977 show, came from an original audience master, and as a fan commented, “with better clarity and depth than ever before”.

The following review was written by David Troedson and David Adams and posted at elvis.com.au.

CD5 - It is also now June and Elvis’ third last ever concert… CD5 does not have the sparkling sound of Discs 1, 2… it is superior to many of the 1976 concerts, and some that FTD have released officially.

CD6 - This is the audience recording, and as such it is actually pretty good. This is an updated transfer from the original dual audience reel tape and re-mastered to exceptional sound quality than ever before. This box could not be complete without having the last show, the final curtain, being in the final sound quality. All of the audio materials contained in the box are taken from 1st generation copies of original Soundboard/RCA tapes. So it is included in this set as it is Elvis Presley’s last ever concert, performed June 26, 1977…

There is a unique ambiance with the excitement of the audience being louder than on a normal professionally recorded and/or soundboard concert. This takes a bit more concentration to listen to how Elvis is performing, and while I won’t play this probably more than a couple of times in the future it does have its character, and some fans will completely disagree with me and enjoy the performance. Regardless of your view it is an important record of an admittedly sad (as it turned out) Final Farewell. And yes, in my opinion it is one of Elvis’ better shows, he went out rockin’!!!

  2. Indianapolis is certainly far superior to anything I have ever heard before. Thanks so much for adding this historical recording
