This week, Justin, Bec and Olivia take a look back at the live
material originally released as the "From Memphis to Vegas" part of
Elvis's 1969 double LP and whether it still holds up as originally
released, and ponder why it's been overlooked by comparison to
Madison Square Garden, Aloha From Hawaii and even Elvis in
Part 1 this week includes some brief Elvis news, more discussion on Baz Luhrmann's ELVIS, and then a thorough look at Side A of the album, as well as providing some context for the 1969 engagement. Part 2 next week will cover Side B and Songs of the Week.
