Fake Elvis "Answering Machine" message released by FTD!: The promotional blurb for the recent FTD book 'Best Of British – The RCA Years 1957-1958' noted in part, "This is Elvis, with the continuation of the British story now detailing his RCA releases from 1957 - 1958. The CD included with this book features many first-time officially released Elvis tracks. Here, amongst his classic songs, are the songwriters’ demo recordings as Elvis first heard them, plus the message he recorded on his home answer machine!"
Unfortunately it has now been revealed that Elvis' answering-machine message is a fake, edited together from The Truth About Me interview outtakes of August 22 1956. It isn't an answer phone message at all!.

Of course EIN certainly agree that the book, by Trevor Simpson, is a marvellous examination of the period and that the CD is only a bonus however this has to be a major slip-up, albeit only 16 seconds long. It has also been round for long enough for keen Elvis fans to know that it was only a fake. It starts "Hi, this is Elvis Presley" in exactly the same way as the Truth About Me.

Of course it might be OK to add it as a Bonus "joke" track but to promote it as the real deal is misleading at the very least.

Elvis’ Honeymoon 1967 Cadillac Sold for $88k: It was known as the car that Elvis Presley and Priscilla would drive around Memphis after they got married. The famous 1967 Cadillac Coupe De Ville was recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $88,000. Before being out for auction, Elvis Presley’s Cadillac Coupe de Ville has been part of Mike L. Moon’s private collection since 1979. It has been on display at the Elvis Presley Museums in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Niagara Falls ever since.
Elvis purchased this red Caddy on September 15, 1967 and it was the car he drove Priscilla with around Memphis, shortly after they were married. The bidder received copies of the original Bill of Sale, as well as the original Protect-O-Plate showing the name Elvis Presley and listing the address of Graceland. Finished in red with a black interior, the 2-door coupe comes with an 8-cylinder engine and a 3-speed automatic transmission.

Channeling Elvis: How Television Saved the King of Rock 'n' Roll has been released: Allen J. Wierner's latest book has been released. Based on years of research and analytical insight, Wiener's book brings a long overdue perspective on an important part of Elvis' career which is usually examined on a show by show basis and one which not only spanned his whole career but was instrumental in his initial success and then punctuated his career with seminal performances which are now part of television history.
From the press release: Elvis Presley was a virtual unknown when, in 1956, he strutted his stuff in front of a national television audience for the very first time. By year’s end, following a dozen TV appearances, he was an international superstar. Over the next two decades, Elvis turned to TV whenever his career required a boost or a complete makeover. Channeling Elvis: How Television Saved the King of Rock 'n' Roll takes a close-up look at his 20-year career through the unique lens of television.

Based on more than a decade of research, dozens of fresh interviews, and careful review of hours of television and other footage, this book focuses on Elvis' TV career and the role it played in creating, sustaining, and reviving his unrivaled popularity. Only television captured the full arc of the King's career, from his initial steps on the national stage and highly anticipated return from the U.S. Army to his resurrection in the wake of some lame recordings and weak movies, renewed acclaim as a concert artist, and premature, self-inflicted 1977 exit. Television captured it all. And Elvis Presley's TV appearances also provided us with the most extensive visual record of this incredible man doing what he loved best: performing live. 

Featuring the insights and observations of some of his closest associates, Channeling Elvis: How Television Saved the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll places us behind the camera as well as in front of the small screen to explore one of the most fascinating and revealing aspects of a legendary career.

Praise for Channeling Elvis: “Unlike the Hollywood-contrived plastic persona that characterized the vast majority of his big-screen appearances, the Elvis who turned American television on its head during the mid-’50s and used it for his rebirth in the late-’60s was the real performer in all of his lip-curling, pelvic-thrusting glory. Equally captivating was the sadder figure who faced the final curtain on his 1977 TV special, and it is thanks to Allen Wiener’s great insight and invaluable research that, at long last, Channeling Elvis investigates and illuminates these pivotal moments of a legendary career.” – Richard Buskin, author of Classic Tracks: The Real Stories Behind 68 Seminal Recordings

Nashville RCA Studio A To Be Demolished: Nashville country music RCA Studio A that has hosted Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson looks set to be torn down to build luxury apartments - to many it is a symbol of 'old Nashville' and the city's rich musical legacy. Fans of Elvis' fans should not be thrown by this news as it is NOT the famous STUDIO B where Elvis, (Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison etc) recorded their classic material. Studio B is still open for tours and has a truly stunning ambience.
Pianist Ben Folds has fought an energetic campaign to save Studio A but he has bowed out after the rent was more then doubled.
The rather nondescript RCA Studio A in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, has been visited by a host of country stars including Willie Nelson, the Beach Boys and Dolly Parton.
Various news stories report that... 
A) Elvis recorded in Studio A - this is not the case as Elvis' classics were recorded in the smaller, more intimate Studio B.
B) The studios were constructed in 1965 at the request of Chet Atkins, who was originally looking for a place to track string parts for Elvis Presley's gospel albums. However Elvis' 1966 Gospel Album was recorded in Studio B and featured no orchestral overdubs.
However, not everybody in the creative industry is opposed to closing the doors of the recording studio. In an open letter, acclaimed country guitar player Harold Bradley - a former owner of RCA Studio A - rebuked anyone willing to stand in the way of progress. 'What makes a place historic?' he asked. 'The architecture of the Nashville sound was never brick and mortar. Certainly, there are old studio spaces that, in our imaginations, ring with sonic magic; but in truth, it's not the room, it's the music. The architecture of Nashville's evolving sound is a synergy of creative energy. That's still here, and it has nothing to do with this building."

Barbra Streisand - with Elvis - Makes Chart History: Barbra Streisand's new duets album "Partners" has entered the Billboard 200 chart at number one, making her the only recording artist in history to have a number one release in six consecutive decades.
Streisand is the best-selling female recording artist in history. She is the only woman to make the All-Time Top 10 Best Selling Artists list, an honor which includes fellow duet "Partners" Elvis Presley and Billy Joel. She also now has the longest span of number one albums in history; just under 50 years.

"Partners" is Streisand's 33rd album to make it into the Top 10 on the US charts. She is the only female artist to have achieved this milestone, tying her with Frank Sinatra.
Today Streisand posted,"Hearing the news that "Partners" entered the charts at #1 was an overwhelming feeling of joy!!
It's especially sweet since I get to share this moment with my wonderfully talented partners who I had the pleasure of singing with: Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, ... and last but not least, Elvis Presley…forever The King! - ... With lots of love, Barbr"

Elvis Presley & Roger Moore ‘Haunted’ – New Movie Short: This has been kicking around since 2011 but it is an amusing watch for a lazy weekend. Combining footage of Roger Moore from 1970’s 'The Man Who Haunted Himself and Elvis in ‘Live A Little Love A Little’ this fan-made movie by Natasha Rostov and Alexander Elvis is a fun thriller and clever mix. It is surprising how so much of the footage seems to match.
The story is "James Penlowe (Roger Moore) leads an ordinary life, but his past catches up to him when he gets a mob hitman Greg Nolan (Elvis Presley) on his tail."

News and EIN exclusives from earlier last month

(Book Review) Elvis and Ginger: It has been 37 years in the making but finally, Elvis' fiancee and last love, Ginger Alden, has released her account of their relationship.

The picture Ginger paints of Elvis is a predominately positive one.  She had concerns about his reliance of medications and his temper, but she also shows the warmth of Elvis Presley and that he wasn’t always withdrawn or emotionally down.  Elvis laughed, talked, read books, played racquetball and had fun!

That said, release of her memoir has elicited an emotionally charged debate and divided some fans.

Read EIN's full review


(Book Review) Memphis Mafia Princess: Shirley Dieu's memoir of her years inside Elvis' inner circle is one of two new books (the other being Ginger Alden's release, Elvis and Ginger).

Fan reaction to Memphis Mafia Princess has been a strongly positive one and, as EIN's Nigel Patterson recently discovered on reading Ms Dieu's memoir, rightly so.

From living the high life and backgammon parties at Huigh Hefner's private club to the rigours of touring and Elvis' tragic death, Shirley Dieu weaves a fascinating mosaic of life in Elvis’ inner circle and colorfully brings to life the nuances of both people and events.  While the release is a positive affirmation of Shirley's experience with Joe Esposito (her partner for almost 5 years) and Elvis, it is balanced with insightful observations about Elvis, others in his life and a number of important incidents, one of which is particularly confronting and raises serious questions about the conduct of several of the Memphis Mafia.

New Footage of  August 19 1975: Recently posted on YouTube is some pretty good quality fan footage synced with sound from Elvis' 1975 Las Vegas Summer Season August 19 Dinner Show.
This was the season where despite poor health Elvis introduced the positive idea of a Request Box for audience song choices. The footage shows Elvis struggling on to entertain his faithful audience and having some fun at the same time.
It is worth watching especially the fun 'My Boy' and Elvis' VERY LAST performance of 'Suspicious Minds'.
However bear in mind Elvis' poor health. Sadly Linda Thompson summed it up so well noting that.."Elvis didn't even realise himself how bad he was at the time" and sadly it was a huge step down from his closing July 75 tour shows.
The footage runs 23 minutes. CLICK HERE to YouTube-
A few years ago Southern Comfort/Audionics released the excellent "'(Cancelled) The Request Box'" which featured several shows from this short season which was cancelled after only five performances.

'Elvis And Ginger' Selling Well: The continuous publicity campaign is certainly working as 'Elvis and Ginger' charts at #14 on this week's New York Times Hardback Non-Fiction best seller list - becoming one of the biggest selling Elvis books in years!
In further promotional interviews this week Ginger Alden "Elvis Presley’s final love" revealed...
Ginger Alden: To begin with it was hard for me to realise that I was his girlfriend. But in time I got a little used to the fact that Elvis and I were a couple. But in the beginning I respected his privacy. I thought he was a busy man and I don't want to just pick up the phone. But we had exchanged numbers and over time, I felt more comfortable with it.
Ginger: Even towards the end there were so many things he was looking forward to. He wanted to do a more serious film. There was a film called "The Mission" that he told me about one evening and we went to his attic and he looked through a box to look for the script. Elvis was always searching why he was what he was and it kind of paralleled his life and what he was trying to do through his music and bringing joy to others. He wanted to play Europe.
He told me he wanted us to get married. He wanted to have more children.
Elvis was the happiest when he put a smile on someone else's face. He didn't have a lot when he was growing up and he was just the most big-hearted man I've ever met.

"If You're Going To Start A Rumble" -The Importance of Fights In Elvis Movies: Exactly why were there so many fights in Elvis movies? Were they crucial to the plot or did they replace the plot themselves?
In his films, fights were always useful for raising Presley’s morale –he often choreographed them himself with the Memphis Mafia – and as a means of reassuring those fans (especially men) who had preferred the hard, rocking Elvis that he had not, as a friend of writer Greil Marcus put it, "sold out to the girls." So it came to pass that in twenty-nine of his thirty-one feature films, he throws at least one punch.

(Mini Book Review) ELVIS: AN AMERICAN TRILOGY VOLUME 1 “FAMILY” MISSISSIPPI TO MEMPHIS, Dennis W. Forbus

DenKar Publishing Group, USA, 2014, Softcover, 287 pages, Illustrated, Index, ISBN-13: 978-0578138305.

Synopsis: Unusual and visually impressive release where the Elvis story is told in the first person. Well done and true to the spirit and incidents in Elvis’ life. As the first volume of a 'trilogy', the book explores Elvis' familial roots and incidents from his early life in significant detail. A strength of the narrative are the stories revealed through interviews with many Presley and Smith family members and others who knew Elvis in his formative years. Elvis historians will welcome this information.

Another strength of this release are the many interesting and sometimes extremely rare photos and archival material it includes. Some of the hundreds of images include the Tupelo Hospital where, after his birth, Elvis and Gladys spent 2 days, a photo of Elvis aged about 7 at church and stunning color photos of a young, blond Elvis leaving East Tupelo Consolidated School one afternoon.

The author, Dennis W. Forbus, is an ETA. Reviewed by Nigel Patterson, EIN

The book description: A journey through the world of Elvis, before the world knew Elvis. This volume one of our trilogy brings out the very roots of the Presley and Smith Families, in depth stories never before shared in publications, from people never before heard of in the Elvis world. Yes, some fresh stuff for the Elvis fans and collectors. This project will reveal family photos, historical documents, and property locations and proof of places Elvis lived that few have ever been told about, much less seen pictures of. Interviews from family members, friends, church members, classmates, fans, and even people that made fun of Elvis, laughed at him, and gave him the very reason to one day sing and record his hit song, "Don't Be Cruel."

This volume goes in great details of family roots and childhood stories, mishaps, and mysteries. The volumes coming soon deals with his friends and fans, and his faith and his final days. Stories told by those that knew Elvis the boy, or the man, long before he became Elvis, The King of Rock-n-Roll! Even get to hear stories that came right from Elvis himself! Nineteen years of interviewing family, friends, band members, background singers, church members, body guards, and many more. Over 73 people have been interviewed and used in this trilogy set. Four years of actual investigating and writing this project. Nine trips to Tupelo, seven trips to Memphis and Graceland, and many miles travels to parts throughout America. Why? To simply place proof and integrity inside these pages. Both the author, as well as the publisher, have gone to great lengths to print what we believe is the truth according to our historical facts findings over the past years.

'Ultimate Elvis Sessions' UPDATE: As Erik Lorentzen and the team carrying out the final proof-reading and head to print it could be your LAST CHANCE to get your pre-orders in. With a LIMITED EDITION of 2,000 boxes worldwide Pre-Orders are close to being Sold Out. The time-line of the three books has also been slightly altered.
... Originally, when this project was being discussed some years ago, the general idea was to have three volumes of Ultimate Elvis, each one dealing exclusively with the three decades Elvis recorded: the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. That would give the work a neat symmetry, we believed.
However, as the project took shape and, incredibly, grew to about 1600 pages - which included a great deal of text along with about 3000 images -
it became obvious that the amount of material we had for each of the decades varied considerably. This was due, in the main, to the fact that while Elvis’ recording career spanned twenty-four years from 1953 to 1977, his
his professional recording career only started in 1954 and paused, so to speak, in 1958. And while he did record some material at home in the 1958-1960 period, there wasn’t that much of it. The sixties, however, proved to be extremely prolific in terms of the number of film soundtracks he recorded, not to mention the non-film, original recording sessions he undertook during that period.
Therefore, in order to even out the material in three volumes of similar length - not so say accommodate the extensive discography and song index in the final volume - we decided to deviate slightly from our original idea and cover the time frame thus: 1953 – 1960; 1961-1968; and finally, the years leading up to 1977.

"Streets of San Francisco" Staring Elvis?: This story was noted on the FECC message board back in 2007, but has recently been picked up again. The "Elvis" episode of the old TV series 'Streets of San Francisco' featuring a young Michael Douglas has been getting YouTube hits again. Mentioned in Elvis Monthly at the time, the episode featured Elvis co-star Bill Bixby (Clambake, Speedway) and featured all sort of Elvis characters in the story. The screenplay was written by Elvis acquaintance Rick Husky. Called 'Target : Red' it was first shown in September 1974.
Bill Bixby plays hitman Jerry Schilling, there is also a character called General Red West, an FBI agent called Vernon Presley and sidekicks Sonny and Lamar.
Guest stars: Byron Morrow (Vernon Presley), (Nurse), David McLean (Captain), Bill Bixby (Jerry Schilling), Andrew Duggan (Major General 'Red' West), Linda Marsh (Myrna Schilling), Bret Morrison (Lamar Fisk).
At the time Rick Husky was supposedly pitching a screenplay for what he hoped might be Elvis' movie comeback - Was this a version of that script or was he trying to show Elvis and Parker what he could do.

Priscilla Suggests Fans Stay Calm about Elvis Planes (again): After Tuesday's news about Elvis’ two jets, the 'Lisa Marie' and 'Hound Dog II' now up for sale, Priscilla told fans, "Concerning the recent reports about the planes. Please be patient. We are STILL negotiating and it is not appropriate for us to discuss at this time. Thank you , Priscilla"
EIN realises that EPE no doubt want to own the planes so as to "cut-out the middle man" and increase their base profits. We guess that EPE thought they would be the only definite buyers and would be offering less than seller K.G. Coker wanted. So it makes business sense for him to put them up for sale to anyone, if only to scare EPE to a higher price.
After both the Graceland auction and the high prices being demanded by EPE for the new Hotel (see news story below), EIN can see his logic in pushing for a better price.
After all, if new owners ABG want the big spenders as part of their Elvis "clients", then EPE/ABG suppliers will be thinking they should spend big in return!
(News, Source;ElvisInfoNet)

Elvis Planes Now Up For Sale: Elvis Presley’s last two jets, the 'Lisa Marie' and 'Hound Dog II' are now up for sale.
The four-engine “Lisa Marie” features a queen-size bed, gold bathroom fixtures, a videotape system with four TVs and a stereo system with 52 speakers, according to the sales advert.
It states "Accepting Serious Offers For Purchase Option, As A Package Of Two Aircraft Previously Owned By Elvis Presley. For Display Only, Not Airworthy For Flight!"
The tail section on the 1960 Convair 880 features Presley’s trademark “TCB” — for “Taking Care of Business” — and a color scheme personally chosen by Elvis.
The smaller “Hound Dog II” JetStar was Presley’s back-up
plane, flown while “Lisa Marie” was remodeled to suit Elvis’ tastes, the ad said.
These planes represent the epitome of 1975 rock star luxury, but if you buy them don’t expect to fly them.
“They’re both museum pieces,” said K.G. Coker, the Memphis man who bought them after Presley’s 1977 death. They’ve not been flown since they were parked at the tourist entrance to Presley’s Graceland mansion in 1984.
Coker’s ad doesn’t set a price, but it he is looking for “serious offers.”
Millions of Elvis fans have peered into the planes as part of the Graceland tour, with Coker getting a cut of the ticket proceeds, but his agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises has expired. He’s looking for a buyer because his agreement with and negotiations to keep them at Graceland have failed, leaving the jets’ future up in the air.
Fans erupted in protest when a news report in July said Elvis Presley Enterprises sent a letter to Coker asking him to move the planes from Graceland Plaza, across Elvis Presley Boulevard from the singer’s famous home by next year.
Priscilla Presley, the singer’s former wife and mother of his daughter Lisa Marie, tried to ease fan fears in a tweet on July 2: “Please calm down, we’re in the midst of negotiations. It’s as simple as that.”
A spokesman for EPE last week stated that negotiations were still going on, but Coker declined to comment on the process.
Presley’s father sold the planes in 1978, but his estate later negotiated with the owners to park them at Graceland after it was opened to the public. Go HERE to see the advert & to buy the Lisa Marie!

Very High Prices for "Graceland Guest House" Founders: EPE have announced seemingly ridiculous prices to become a founding member of their new hotel complex - up to $30,000 - something the average Elvis fan could never afford.

- Annual archival Diamond Level gift on Elvis’ birthday
The cost of this is $30,000!

No wonder, as Forbes noted (see EIN's August 15 'Why Did Graceland Have the Elvis Week Auction?' story below) the Graceland Auction was a good idea for EPE to learn who the Elvis high-rollers might be.
EIN reads the above description to mean that for $30,000 you can ONLY stay TEN nights at the new complex per year - and you still have to pay $71.50 per night!
What sort of Elvis fan can afford that? This seems a very expensive time-share deal!

As the new owners ABG announced back in 2013 "We envision moving the Elvis brand into other realms beyond music, including the luxury items market." ABG's Joel Weinshanker was at Elvis Week and appears to be the driving force.
The lesser "GOLD LEVEL" Founder (for only 750 members)
Let's you stay only FIVE nights at the new complex per year, you still have to pay $71.50 per night and costs the lesser price of $10,000!
And you don't get the "Invitation to the family cocktail gala"

'King Of The Hilton' New Anne E. Nixon book: 'King Of The Hilton' is an exciting new book about Elvis in Vegas seen through the eyes of someone who was there, superfan Anne E. Nixon..
After many requests from fans, respected Elvis writer and researcher Anne E Nixon, (author of Ten Years After and The Elvis Archives), is for the first time publishing her detailed show reports from the Vegas years.
Anne attended 40 Elvis Presley shows from 1972-1976, and wrote copious notes on each performance. A few of her show reports were printed in books and magazines at the time, but only now has she opened the vaults and every show she attended is given in-depth coverage.
With the help of  Richard Harvey, she has written a text-rich 300 page A5 sized softback book that will delight all fans of Vegas-era Elvis.  King of the Hilton is an affectionate, and sometimes poignant diary that takes the reader right back to the Hilton Hotel in the seventies, when Elvis reigned supreme.
Crammed with show anecdotes, complete set-lists, musician/celebrity/jumpsuit checklists, and verbatim Elvis dialogue - the authors had access to previously uncirculated private audio - and loaded with never before published facts about the Hilton scene during those heady days. All of this delivered at a fan-friendly price only- £15.99 / US$27
Inside this handsome book you’ll find -
*Complete first hand reports of every show of the final Vegas season in December ‘76.

*The famous 1974 ‘Desert Storm’ closing show as seen from a front booth.
*Over 100 illustrations including Hilton artefacts.
*The '74 monologues.
*Cancelled! The 1975 season.
*In-depth appendix of songs, suits and show times.
*Closing Night '73 'Monkey' show, exactly what happened on-stage .
*Each edition of this limited print run publication will be signed and numbered.

FTD Releases August 2014 OUT NOW: Three new releases announced for August 2014 release are OUT NOW, a Classic Album, UK book, plus new LIVE vinyl album.
- ‘Elvis For Everyone’ – Classic Album.
This 2-Disc 7" Set Celebrates 1965’s Classic Album "Elvis For Everyone" and features a selection of previously officially unreleased session outtakes.
The original press release posted by RCA in August 1965 says, "This is the first Elvis Presley album since 1962 [POT LUCK] that is not a movie soundtrack album." In this new album, Presley demonstrates great versatility by singing a wide range of songs, familiar and unfamiliar, slow ballads and hard-driving rock’’n’rollers. Only one of these songs has ever been issued before ("Summer Kisses, Winter Tears"). The lead off-song, "Your Cheatin’ Heart." Is the title song of the new movie based on the life of Hank Williams., currently playing throughout the country … ..Varied repertoire and Elvis in top form make this really Elvis For Everyone."
Although it was compiled from previously unreleased recordings, it appeared like a breath of fresh air to Elvis fans that had become
somewhat tired of the formulaic soundtracks. The LP hit the top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic. 
This 2-CD classic edition features insightful essays, rare memorabilia and great outtakes! 
It also features the rare overdubbed version of "Wild in The Country" that featured maracas and additional bass guitar. Although, the source remains a mystery to this day, it was supplied to RCA-UK for its stereo version of the album as a replacement for "Summer Kisses." This track had been issued two months before on RCA-UK’s unique album, Flaming Star And Summer Kisses. 
Apart from OPTIONAL MASTERS that could have been used, DISC 2 contains 23 Previously Unreleased Outtakes from the ‘60s!!!!!!
Go here to SONY/FTD 2014 releases for full tracklisting.

'Elvis: That's The Way It Is' Deluxe Edition: After weeks of speculation Sony/RCA/Legacy officially announce the release of monumental definitive edition of "Elvis: That's The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition)" presented together for the first time ever in a Deluxe Box Set (8CD/2DVD). Available on August 5, 2014.
The CD selection is exactly as EIN predicted with two concerts being officially released for the very first time. 
CD1 ‘That's The Way It Is’ - Original Album
CD2 August 10 Opening Show - (FTD One Night in Vs)
CD3 August 11 DS - Unreleased
CD4 August 11 MS - (BMG Live In Las Vegas box-set)
CD5 August 12 DS - Unreleased
CD6 August 12 MS - (BMG 30th Anniv box-set)
CD7 August 13 DS - (FTD The Wonder Of You)
CD8 Rehearsals - (BMG 30th Anniv box-set)
That’s The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition) is the most ambitious Elvis Presley restoration package ever created, bringing together - for the first time ever - the album, the theatrical and home video versions of the film, six full-length concerts (featuring previously unreleased performances), rehearsal highlights and other rare recordings in one astounding and essential package. The result of an historic partnership between Sony and Warner Brothers, the deluxe set combines the video and audio assets of Elvis: That’s The Way It Is with unique and previously unreleased material.
The highly-collectible That’s The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition), bonuses include unreleased material, remixed and remastered audio and a new 80-page book detailing the entire event with facts, songwriter and musician interviews, and photos in a deluxe 8CD/2DVD box set.
Originally released on RCA Records in November 1970, Elvis: That's The Way It Is combined eight studio tracks, recorded in Nashville, and four live concert performances recorded in Las Vegas during Presley's 1970 "Summer Festival" season at The International Hotel in Las Vegas to create one of Elvis' best albums.
On July 14, rehearsals for the movie and live shows commenced at the MGM lot in Culver City, California. The Hollywood cameras rolled for five different rehearsals prior to the opening night on August 10. Unquestionably, Elvis was keen to broaden his repertoire for the film,as more than 60 songs were attempted during the period, far more than the usual average of 20 to 25 that would normally be chosen. Over the four nights filmed by MGM, Elvis and his band worked tirelessly, trying out a broad variety of musical styles, emphasizing his desire to share the wide range of music he loved with his audience. Director Denis Sanders captured the end result magnificently, providing fans throughout the world with their first glimpse of the new contemporary Elvis performing at the peak of his vocal prowess both in rehearsal and on the stage.
'That's The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition)' centers on the SIX complete shows recorded and partially filmed by MGM. Two of the shows are released for the first time in their entirety.
The original RCA album is expanded with the four single sides from the period, and a selection of “fly-on-the-wall” outtakes from the June Nashville sessions that produced the majority of tracks for the album. Completing the audio section, a separate disc of insightful rehearsal highlights, featuring unusual song selections showcases both the hard work and the playful atmosphere that governed Elvis’ relationship with his musicians.
That's The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition) puts the original RCA album and the 1970 MGM documentary feature together in a single package for the first time. It includes the previously released original theatrical DVD version (1970) and the re-edited and extended DVD version from 2000.
(EIN note: What a shame not one scrap of new footage has been included. This would have been the perfect place and presumably indicates that there will never be an official release of any more MGM filmed material).
