01-28-71 M.S. Lean, Mean, & Kickin' Butt (Soundboard Recording) (This is an excellent show. No joking around, with all great versions of each song. E has kind of a rougher sound to his voice, since this is a couple of days before he became ill, but the rough sound is a good one. He also closes the show with The Impossible Dream.)

01-28, 29/ 71 Heavy Times (Soundboard Recordings)featuring the Vegas performances on January 28th 1971, midnight show and January 29th 1971, dinner show.

Can’t Help Falling in Love is in the show, but not the closer as it's the second song of the night.. For the 1st time, E sings Help Me Make It Through The Night, and for the last time, sings In The Ghetto. Other highlights were Tiger Man, , There Goes My Everything, Just Pretend, and 1 line of Old shep and E closes with the Impossible Dream.)

11-15-71 Live In Kansas City (Bad Audience Recording) (Reviews and writes always say this is by far the best show on this tour, going right at about 90 minutes. The bad problem is, is that this cd is incomplete and only has about 60 minutes of the show. There are 2 other releases of this show with the same exact problem.Highlights include It`s Over, I Can`t Stop Loving You, and It`s Now Or Never.This show can be seen on the vcd Return To Splendour.)
