Captain Marvel Jr. Records Has Always Strived To Bring Fans The Best Possible Product, No Matter What Obstacles They Must Overcome.
"Candid Elvis On Camera"Is Their Newest Release.
In June Of 1977 Elvis Was Being Filmed By CBS For Their Upcoming 'Elvis In Concert Special".
This Cd Starts Out With Felton Jarvis Explaining The Whole Process Of Elvis Arriving, Etc As Heard On The Original Special.
Then "See See Rider" Begins, Two Things Instantly Catch You Off Guard. First Of Which Is The Mix Which Has Charlie Hodge Way Out Front In The Recording.
Secondly, Is The Sound Quality Which Is Below Par For Captain Marvel Jr. Which Has A Very Good Track Record In Providing High Sound Quality. BUT, I Can Assure You Of This.. I Have Reviewed Both This, And "As I Leave You" And The Capt. Marvel Jr's Release Has Much Better Quality (At Least To My Ears!)
Now, Back To The Concert.... It Is Quite Evident That Elvis Was Very Ill During The Filming, And His Voice Seems To Be Very Weak (Maybe That Is Why Charlie Is Mixed Over Elvis??) Elvis Sings His Usual Concert Repetoir, Including "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" With The Mess Up, Like On "Moody Blue And Others".
Some Of The Highlights To Me Are "And I Love You So" "How Great Thou Art" And "I Really Don't Want To Know"
It Is Very Interesting To Listen To This In It's Undubbed, "Un-Basterdized" (Thanks Brian For The New Term!) Form. We Now Finally Get To Hear This Concert In It's Full Form Without The Overdubbing/Editing By RCA.
An Added Extra Bonus Is The Track "Your Life Has Just Begun" From The '74 Home Recordings.
Now If You Had To Chose Between This And "As I Leave You" I Would STRONGLY Urge You To Buy "Candid Elvis" As It Is Definitely The Superior Product!
