Wednesday the 16th May 1956 saw the one man hurricane Elvis Presley grace the stage at the Robinson Auditorium in Little Rock, Arkansas. It wasn’t the first time that Elvis had played the venue with his band but from this particular performance we’re extremely blessed to have a great recording to listen back to, especially one with such good quality given the amount of time that has passed since the show itself.
Released to coincide with director Ron Howard’s new Beatles documentary, Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years, Live At The Hollywood Bowl is a beautifully packaged live album which was actually originally released in 1977. However this new edition has been sublimely remixed and remastered with the addition of four new songs that weren’t on the original album. The songs, all recorded from various shows the band played at the Hollywood Bowl in Hollywood, Los Angeles, sound fantastic and about as fresh as if they were performed and recorded yesterday.
