On Stage February 1970 Expanded CD Elvis second live album, partly cut at the International Hotel in Las Vegas in early 1970 , is one of his most unfairly underrated releases. In its original form, it did seem a bit cheap, offering ten songs that werent necessarily associated with Elvis Presley. By this time, he was adding covers of other artists contemporary hits to his set, not to capitalize on their success but to keep his hand in contemporary music and show audiences of the era that he was capable of doing more than reprising his own 1950s and early-60s songs. The critics failed to notice two things, however Presley had the same first-rate band who had graced the previous tour, led by James Burton on guitar when he performed Neil Diamonds Sweet Caroline, Tony Joe Whites Polk Salad Annie, or (most especially) Del Shannons Runaway, he did them extremely well. The Wonder of You might not have been Thats All Right or even Heartbreak Hotel, but it was a towering performance by a singer who, even then, could run circles around virtually anyone in the business this side of Roy Orbison . The 1999 full-priced reissue not only improves the sound, but adds six songs (for a total of 16), four of them -- In the Ghetto, Kentucky Rain, Dont Cry Baby, and Suspicious Minds -- recent Elvis Presley hits. Although he didnt do any of the songs from his movies or any of the early-1960s hits, he did those four, and that makes this CD essential for any Elvis fan who cares about his comeback or the best work that followed it also makes this the perfect companion to the 1968 television comeback and the Suspicious Minds (aka Memphis Record) album.

Probably one of the first social conscious songs Elvis did in the 60's - 70's timeframe. Just went music was changing, he changed with it too. Classic Elvis.
