The soundboard recording of the January 26, 1970 Opening Show has been released by the Madison label.
From the press release:
The soundboard recording of the January 26, 1970 Opening Show was overall of poor quality because of severe microphone overload. It ain't perfect but now, and for the first time you will be able to enjoy this great concert in its entirety. This excellent new source has been greatly improved into a surprisingly fuller, dynamic and warmer sound, and without any doubts the best-ever sound fidelity attained on this amazing opening show of January 1970.
This limited edition of Opening Show - January 1970 will come with a professionally designed 16-page booklet, liner notes, memorabilia and photographs from Elvis' second Las Vegas season. Don't miss out soon a remarkable concert and Closing Night - February 1970's perfect companion, Opening Night - January 1970.
