Closing Night (FTD) - Front Cover

The soundboard recording of Elvis's closing night for the August/September 1973 engagement at Las Vegas Hilton. The first seven songs are from the dinner show on September 3, and the remainder of the CD is from the midnight show. The reason for this splitshow CD, is that these two segments are the only known recordings done professionally.
