"Must have DVDs" - Elvis Presley: Elvis '68 Comeback Special (Sony/BMG)

This is arguably the finest short review we've read about the Comeback Special DVD. Savor the words wriiten by Shane Nichols............


"The 1968 TV special was called simply Elvis, but posterity knows it as the comeback show. It caught Presley at a defining moment, resurrecting his career with an authoritative demonstration of supernatural talent and charisma.

The seven hours of this triple DVD set include the special as it went to air (minus ads), plus the two "leather suit sit-down shows" (with original band) and the two "leather suit stand-up shows" (performed solo). It repeatedly shows the star reaching for excellence, for the killer groove that infused his early work. It's thrilling, exciting, probably Elvis's finest hour - he's imperial but generous, funny, beautiful and musically hungry".
