Elvis Presley Trouble In Vegas Memory Records Label

...finally, the next release from the Memory Records Label will be ELVIS PRESLEY "Trouble In Vegas", a single disc title that evidently presents the most 'interesting' of two previously unreleased dinner shows on December 9, 1976 in which ole EL is severely medicated and is indeed having a bit of a hard time getting through the performance...the 76 minute show is plagued with false starts and forgotten lyrics, documenting an episode where things all went wrong in a place he typically took by storm.

That's all we've scoured up through the last 6-7 days from a silver disc perspective and as the Spring unfolds we can surely expect things to pick up as well as some surprises.  Well, surely something will create excitement along the way!  Have a great week and keep your browsers on the HotWacks News Ticker...
