Having Fun with Elvis on Stage
In 1991 a book came out called "The Worst Rock and Roll Records of All Time". Their criteria was that "the artist must have at least passively condoned the project, and the work must be done by a 'major' artist". So with all there was to choose from, how could this 1974 Elvis Presley concert album have possibly attained the top spot? Surely a live Elvis concert would have some great performances of songs made famous by the King of Rock and Roll himself, wouldn't it? But let your eyes travel to the top right corner of the album cover with me, and notice four simple words that made all the difference. (I blew up the picture in that area if you couldn't read it.)
Yes, this is an actual Elvis live concert album WITHOUT THE SONGS!! This has got to be heard to be believed! Elvis Presley was a great charismatic performer, but he wasn't so good on the between-song patter (and remember, that's all there IS here)! And one last thing: the management will not be responsible for injuries caused by jaws dropping and heads shaking in confusion after listening to this album.
