Hear the Rare Elvis Presley Album Recorded in Kalamazoo
Even diehard fans of the King of Rock & Roll may not know that he released an album called "Shakin' Up the Great Lakes," recorded in Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Less than 4 moths before he passed away, Elvis Presley's 1977 concert tour brought him through Michigan. The King played Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor on April 24th and Kalamazoo's Wings Stadium 2 nights later. Both shows were recorded directly from the soundboard and an album called "Shakin' Up the Great Lakes" was issued on CD in 2006. This now rare, collectors item renders a crisp, clean, accurate representation of what it was like to be in the audience for what would be the last run of shows for Elvis. You can spens about $40 for the European import on eBay of press "play" on the YouTube link below and turn it up.
