***PRE ORDER ONLY. RELEASE DATE END OF FEBRUARY.

Straight Arrow Special Products SA/SP 2018-50-02
 
Our first release in 2018 is titled “Philadelphia Freedom”.  It's the summer of 1976, and America is celebrating its bicentennial. What could be more patriotic than seeing America’s greatest entertainer in the city where the countries' Declaration of Independence was formed and signed? Straight Arrow team has been looking for a recording of this particular concert for a long time… and finally succeeded.
 
Compared with July and August 1976 concerts, performances in June were of a much better standard and the Philadelphia concert is no exception. Elvis did a fine show that night. 
 
The Philadelphia, June 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased. Until now, this show was not available in acceptable sound. The only existing tape was in horrible quality. Our release has been taken directly from a previously unreleased original audience-recorded cassette. This concert was recorded by an Elvis fan from Pennsylvania. 
 
This release is presented in a de-luxe 6-panel digipak with collection of photos taken in  Philadelphia, PA, June 28th, 1976 and with great liner notes written by the fan who taped the show!
