Essentially a recreation of one of Elvis Presley's historic 1970 performances at the Las Vegas International Hotel, VIVA LAS VEGAS selects cuts from several previously available live Presley albums, including "C.C. Rider," "Polk Salad Annie," and "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" from ON STAGE, and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" from THAT'S THE WAY IT IS. After Presley had spent some years in the '60s playing second fiddle to the Beatles, his career had undergone a spectacular resurgence following the broadcast of his now-legendary 1968 TV special. The energetic, committed performances captured here show a reinvigorated artist at the top of his game, performing well-chosen material by the likes of Tony Joe White, John Fogerty, and the Everly Brothers, and backed by a crack band of musicians whose ranks include the storied guitarist James Burton, the '60s country star Sandy Posey, and the gospel group the Jordanaires. The studio version of the title track is an added bonus
