  Follow That Dreams fourth and latest audio/visual package (marketing jargon for cd and book to you and me) sees Sherif Hanna and Ernst Mikael Jorgensen team up again since the companies first foray The Way It Was. Live In L.A. celebrates Elvis' twenty year association with Los Angeles and California, being a home away from home.Keystoned on his May 11th.1974 evening show during a short five show concert tour of California that started and ended in San Bernardino (10th and 13th) had an afternoon performance in L.A. (11th) and also took in Fresno (12th). The 130 plus pages starts with black and white photos from the fifties three a piece from Long Beach 7th June and L.A. 8th June 1956, eight publicity shots August 1956,two press interview and six on stage in L.A. 28th.October 1957 plus four more a day later on the 29th. There on in it's colour all the way with five L.A. afternoon 14th November 1970 (Love Letters From Elvis LP), four L.A. evening 14th (You'll Never Walk Alone LP), five L.A. airport / outside 23rd April 1973 and three L.A. afternoon11th.May 1974 (Peacock jumpsuit). The main body of the book being the 11th evening with over ONE HUNDRED really gorgeous pics of Elvis in the American Eagle jumpsuit though every now and then a soft focus is captured. To round out there's eight from Long Beach 25th April 1976 afternoon show (Bicentennial white vest,blue puff sleeve shirt), twenty taken in the evening (Bicentennial blue vest, white puff sleeve shirt) and fifteen from Anaheim 30th November 1976 (Indian Feather jumpsuit). The cd,a soundboard mainly from the L.A. 11th May 1974 evening show, represents the songs in Elvis' repertoire at the time except for The Wonder Of You which sadly is not included though marking its introduction on this tour Big Boss Man is (one of two songs from San Bernardino a day earlier). He also tries to pass himself off as Glen Campbell and then Wayne Newton but nobody is falling for that. Soundwise there's a nice balance but soundboards lack that punchy depth to them you get from a regular recording though there can be no complaints.The added bonus of YOU CAN HAVE HER (previously unreleased) from the afternoon show recorded by a member of the audience (once a frowned on practice that is now celebrated) is I guarantee you the BEST you've ever heard it sound. For the anoraks the closing vamp is more jazz orientated than usual. Trivia: British rock group Led Zeppelin had front row seats for the (11th) evening show and Elvis met Jimmy Page,Robert Plant and the other guys back at his hotel afterwards.They were completely in awe of the superstar and on their leaving Plant impersonating the king sang 'Treat me like a fool' with Elvis reportedly singing 'Treat me mean and cruel' back to him. Evidence that they were indeed at the show can be heard on the cd following a nice bit of banter after Let Me Be There,the start of Funny How Time Slips Away is fluffed and Elvis asks to start it over saying that they had better do a good job because Led Zeppelin are out there. Elvis' step brother,David Stanley,recalled that Elvis had said later "I guess I showed those boys how to rock" No doubt about that.
