“Sold Out volume 10” is something special… Ever since the inception of Pyramid, we’ve been inundated with requests to release a volume focusing on the final year. We all know that the last year was difficult for Elvis. And for those of us who love the man and his music, it’s still hard to see footage from some of those shows. But there were also those nights where he could pull it together and blow everybody away with the power and might of his voice: performances like “How Great Thou Art”, “Fairytale” and “Hurt” are a testament to that fact. “Sold Out volume 10” has plenty of those moments. And some truly great close-ups of the man giving his all on stage.
One of the advantages of footage from the final year is that it’s often more complete, and indeed one of the shows on this release even clocks in at over 54 minutes. And there are various cool concert rarities including “Funny How Time Slips Away” as the third song in the show, a solid “Until It’s Time For You To You”, a neat “Steamroller Blues”, a back-to-the-basics “That’s All Right Mama”, and more. There’s also plenty of light moments where he is in a playful mood, teasing Charlie and J.D., hiding behind Jerry, etc. And after years of hearing him make the ‘creeping crud’ joke, you can now finally SEE it. We’ve once again included several fascinating behind-the-scenes films, of Elvis in his penguin outfit, the band & singers arriving at a venue, fans waiting in line, shots of the Lisa Marie at night, etc.
This is a release you can’t afford to miss. The liner notes were written by original backing vocalist Carol (Sonja) Montgomery, who provides a fresh perspective on the Nashville ’71 session where Elvis walked out. Packaged in a gorgeous digipack with various pix of The King in his Sundial suit, this gem of a release hits all the right spots! Order it today!
