Shaking Up The Great Lakes

Shaking Up The Great Lakes: The third release on the Fort Baxter Classic Series will be ”Shaking Up The Great Lakes”. This CD will feature the April 24th, 1977 Ann Arbor, MI show which originally has been released on the ”A Profile – The King On Stage vol.1”.

Since the soundboard recording is incomplete the CD will also contain the performance recorded two days later in Kalamazoo, MI. Both soundboard recordings had some songs edited out when originally released and will now for the first time be presented in their complete form. These two concerts certainly make a nice double features as both contain several songs done only once, songs like; ”Trying To Get To You”, ”Jailhouse Rock”, ”Teddy Bear / Don’t Be Cruel”, ”Help Me”, ”Little Sister”, ”Polk Salad Annie”, ”Unchained Melody”, ”Little Darlin”’, ”Big Boss Man”, ”Heartbreak Hotel”, ”And I Love You So”, ”Blue Suede Shoes” and ”Hurt”.

The material is presented in its best-ever-sound quality to date with a 12 pages colour booklet, relevant text and photographs. This is scheduled for release in September. Definitely a very interesting CD to those who missed them out back then, and further more since it will be in better sound quality. The total running time will be 74:59.
