1. Review by Ken Jensen

This show was recorded from the audience in Eugene, Oregon, November 27, 1976. He would never return. Memory Records have already released one show from this tour, captured the previous night in Portland, Oregon (Last Time in Portland). This show is better. Highlights include 'Steamroller Blues', 'America The Beautiful', 'Hurt' and a magnificent albeit incomplete 'How Great Thou Art'.

Elvis is in fine voice and is having a good time on stage. He seems happy, and this is such a contrast to the sad, miserable man from the past summer.

Out of the three concerts that have been released from this tour, Rockiní The Northwest is easily my favorite. I heartily recommend it.
