Overview

Of all the live concert recordings released during Elvis Presley’s lifetime, none carried the historic significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June 1972. Now, a pair of hour-long performances have fi nally been coupled in one package for the fi rst time in the 2-CD+DVD box set, PRINCE FROM ANOTHER PLANET: 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION. Adding to the historic weight of PRINCE FROM ANOTHER PLANET is an evocative 5,000-word essay written by Lenny Kaye, longtime guitarist for Patti Smith. Kaye actually covered the press conference and the concerts for his gig as music editor of Cavalier magazine in the ’70s.

PRINCE FROM ANOTHER PLANET takes its title from a New York Times headline that accompanied its rave review of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden (80,000 tickets sold), the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972.

CD one reprises the (slightly longer) Saturday afternoon show, some 23 songs (plus introductions), archived and issued for the fi rst time 25 years later in 1997, on CD. CD two reprises the Saturday night show in its entirety, some 20 songs (plus introductions) originally issued on LP on June 18, 1972, just eight days after the concert took place. Accompanying the two CDs is a bonus DVD that presents the full WNBC-New York June 9th press conference, a mini documentary featuring interviews with Lenny Kaye (Producer, Patti Smith Group guitarist), James Burton (TCB Band – Guitar) and Glenn D. Hardin (TCB Band – piano), Joe Guercio (Elvis’ Musical director & conductor from 1970 to 1977) and Jerry Schilling (Old friend & bodyguard to Elvis, author of “Me and a Guy Named Elvis: My Lifelong Friendship with Elvis Presley,” and former manager to Jerry Lee Lewis, Lisa Marie Presley & The Beach Boys) as well as PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN Fan Footage!

This footage of the Saturday afternoon show, was shot on a hand-held camera by a fan that captures a revealing portrait of a physically commanding Elvis and his powerhouse TCB Band, background vocalists, and orchestra. Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden now sounds – and looks – amazing!

Although personally, I don't have this album, my dad has the LP, so I can play it whenever I want. Elvis plays his best repitoire here, including That's All Right, All Shook Up, Heartbreak Hotel, Hound Dog and Suspicious Minds. Although Elvis looked bad in 1972, he played some of his best live performances. Since I have only ever heard the LP version, I can't say anything about the digital remastering, but I've heard it's pretty bad. Still, it's a good concert, and you can't go wrong with Elvis; he's the best.

I have been an Elvis fan since I was 15yrs old. I have this particular CD as an LP and think it is great. I agree with the previous review in that Elvis did not look great in '72 however in saying that he never lost the ability to 'sing'. Get the CD you won't be disappointed.
