If I can dream

Looks like the upcoming FTD release I'll Remember You hasn't been released before, after all. According to ElvisNews.com the Danish fan club Elvis Unlimited has confirmed with Ernst Jorgensen that the album will contain the midnight show from February 3, 1973 and not the dinner show, that has been bootlegged twice.

Furthermore, as Elvis only sang "I'll Remember You" at the dinner show and not at the midnight show the song is included as a bonus song on the new FTD release. And finally, Ernst also told Elvis Unlimited that not only was Elvis in great spirits for this show, but also that the sound quality is outstanding on this release.

That is certainly good news, as I think Elvis sounds uninspired and tired on the dinner show, keeping his talk to a minimum (altering between "thank you" and "thank you very much" after the songs) and just going through the motions.

This should come as no big surprise, as it must have been a strange experience returning to the routine of Las Vegas after the Aloha From Hawaii success just a few weeks earlier. What if the satellite show had been followed by a World tour instead. One can only dream...

You are right, a World tour was the next step. Do you think that Col. Parker´s secret identity was the only reason to delete that project? I am not so sure.
