Very Good Soundboard Recording

My New Year's Eve Elvis post (1981-12-31 - NYC) reminded me of just how great, prolific, diverse, and versatile Elvis was during the 1980's. It seems alot of attention is given to his early shows (1977-1979), but somewhat less so for the 1980's. But, it was starting in 1980 that he began to branch out in different directions with specific genre albums, which further demonstrated his range and genius as a songwriter and performer. This show, a very good recording from the 1980 Heatwave festival in Toronto, was ostensibly in support of his newest release at that time, the 1960's Motown/Stax-inspired Get Happy!, but as usual, Elvis throws in numerous songs from all his albums, and several yet-to-be-released gems from the upcoming 1981 album, Trust.
