|Review by Ken Jensen
The first soundboard recording released by Memory Records, and an average one at that. Elvisís performance, however, is well above average. In fact, Iíve heard nothing from the latter half of 1974 that can match this. The tour began in Fort Worth, Texas on June 15 (available on The Man in White, Vol. 1) and ended in Salt Lake City, Utah on July 2 and was one of the last truly great tours of his life.
The Milwaukee concert captures Elvis in splendid mood, obviously enjoying what heís doing. He even sings a few seconds of "Turn Around, Look at Me" to the audienceís delight. Highlights include "Trying to Get to You", his recent single "Help Me", and a majestic "Bridge over Troubled Water".
Instead of returning to Las Vegas and the disaster that waited there, Elvis should have rested a few months, preparing for a world tour. That was the only thing that could have saved him at this point in his lifeóthat and a change of lifestyle and manager. Alas, we all know what happened.
