A new 3CD deluxe stereo boxset of some of Elvis’ live performances in Las Vegas is to be released next month, remastered and remixed for the best possible sound quality.

Las Vegas International Presents Elvis: The First Engagements 1969-70 will be released on 7 May by MRS and is made up of performances drawn from Elvis’ first two engagements at the Las Vegas International Hotel in August 1969 and January thru February 1970.

The accompanying 40-page booklet includes rare photographs and memorabilia along with introductory notes.

You can listen to a sample of the CD here.

A series of 180g LP versions (including the former MRS release of Summer Festival 70 – The Rehearsals) will all be released a month later in June.
