I give this release a 3 stars simply because like Steve Damon says, Elvis pretty much gave the same show every night for the month. We don't need anymore FTD releases from 1969 unless it's the one with Elvis doing "Funny How Time Slips Away" in its entirety, but this show is a good no doubt ..
I have this cd. And like all of his other cd's it is wonderful. Elvis never sang a bad song.

A High energy show all the way !! I give it a ' 4 ' only because Elvis didn't really
change his set all that much in 1969 . Once he had it in place , it was there . He
gave great performances no doubt ! but with the exception of " Rubberneckin "
" Funny How Time Slips Away " , " This Is the Story " , " Inherit the Wind " and an
ocassional rendition of " Reconsider , Baby " , the set pretty much remained the
same from July 31-Aug. 28 , 1969 . Elvis was in great form , both in voice and in
body , but in my own opinion , we really don't need too many shows released from
this engagement although I would like to see FTD release the entire concert in
which Elvis performs " Funny How Time Slips Away " from the 25th of Aug. simply
because for one of the very few times , he does a song " LIVE " before recording it
You just can't get enough of ELVIS!!
