Forty Eight Hours To Memphis was recorded Live on stage in Richmond, Virginia. March 18, 1974, it is derived from what must have been a full professional 16-track multi track recording, the sound is absolutely great, and Elvis is in top form. The booklet is full of great pictures from the actual show and informative notes. The CD comes in a 7” digi format with a 16 page booklet. Contrary to previous informal information given, please be advised that this is a MONO release.
