NEW YEARS EVE is a 2 CD-set of Elvis Presley's complete New Year's Eve 1976 concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is an audience recording, NOT a soundboard. The record company has searched for years to find a soundboard, but without success.

As many collectors know, this show has been bootlegged over and over, and the record company wants to make sure that the many fans who are committed to not buying bootlegs get a chance to experience this historic concert.
The sound quality is noisy, hollow, and loaded with crowd noises, but this is a historic moment and probably the best quality we are ever going to get.

What an INCREDIBLE concert!!!!! E is in top form & rocking in the new year with some 16,000 plus fans. The quality of the recording isn't the best; but the timing of the concert & the amazing performance far outweigh that. It is a must, must have for a true Elvis fan & if RCA could somehow find a soundboard recording of this someday; that would be absolutely the best.

Who cares if it's NOT a soundboard?? This was one of the BEST shows of 1976, in line with Dallas & Birmingham on the same tour! Compare this concert by Elvis to 1975 's NYE in Pontiac? NO comparison. Pontiac SUCKED, was shorter, vibes weren't right, and Elvis didn't seem to be enjoying himself as he did in Pittsburgh! Lots of songs from 1960 ( s ) comeback sessions from the army!

"BIG BOSS MAN", "FAIRYTALE", "MY WAY", "ARE YOU LONESOME, TONIGHT? ", "RECONSIDER BABY", " RAGS TO RICHES" , "UNCHAINED MELODY" --all in 1 concert and one of the best of 1976!!!!! I had the bootleg record version many years ago but NOT in this sound quality. This is great!!! Now, having said this, the Dallas show from Dec. 28 and Birmingham show from Dec. 29 , 1976 would be great follow-up cds!!!!!! thanks for all these FTD
