Press notes: the new Straight Arrow's double feature CD release entitled 'Sin City's Hottest Ticket!', featuring the August 23, 1973 Dinner and Midnight performances. Both shows are taken from original 'audience booth recordings', taped by the same person who recorded previous Straight Arrow's release, 'Endless Summer Festival'. The sound quality is far superior to the usual audience recordings. Ask your local dealer for samples! Following the great success of the ‘Aloha' special, Elvis was more in demand than ever, and he was truly the hottest ticket in town. Las Vegas hotels at the time routinely booked their shows 20% over room capacity, because they knew that normally many of those who ordered tickets would not turn up for the shows. In Elvis' case this caused problems, because virtually everybody who ordered tickets DID show up!

In private, Elvis was fighting his personal demons at the time, but on stage he was delivering the goods. Perhaps his delivery was not quite as tight as at earlier Vegas engagements, but he was in good voice and genuinely seemed to enjoy the interaction with the fans. The shows presented here are two solid, engaging performances with plenty of highlights, including a gorgeous ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' and a rare-for-this-engagement one to last performance of ‘Something'.

It should be noted that neither of these superb-quality, off-line concert recordings have been previously issued. The August 23, 1973 Dinner show is completely new, even to die-hard Elvis fans. This concert was never in circulation, in any form.
