If you like Elvis' Vegas years, as I do, then this box set is for you! A quick breakdown of the 8 CD/2 DVD set:

CD 1 - The original album and some singles/outtakes
CD 2 - Show from 10/08/70
CD 3 - Dinner show from 11/08/70
CD 4 - Midnight show from 11/08/70
CD 5 - Dinner show from 12/08/70
CD 6 - Midnight show from 12/08/70
CD 7 - Dinner show from 13/08/70
CD 8 - Various rehersals
DVD 1 - Elvis: That's The Way It Is (Special Edition 2001 film)
DVD 2 - Elvis: That's The Way It Is (Original 1970 film)

This box set provides a very specialised look near the beginning of Elvis' residences in Las Vegas performing at the International Hotel in 1970 (though he had played there a year earlier in 1969 as potential dry run). As you can see by the film it captures Elvis at arguably his best (in physical and vocal form) after the '68 Comeback Special and before the slow decent into ill-health from around 1973/4 to his untimely death in 1977.

Whilst there are quite a few tracks that are marked unreleased, many others have already shown up on the Live In Las Vegas or Walk A Mile In My Shoes box sets.

What on earth has Sony Music done to That’s The Way It Is?

I don’t own a CD player so any CD’s I play on my Blu-ray player and have the sound going through my Bose Solo.

The sound quality is absolutely fantastic, stunning in fact. I was able to hear things on this release which I never heard on the 3 CD set of the same name which was released some years ago.

As for the picture quality of the DVD’s, again this is fantastic. You would never think this was recorded 44 years ago.

Initially when the press release came out for this set along with the price, a lot of fans complained about the cost as it were out of reach for a lot. Due to the hard work involved in putting this set together I personally can see how the cost is justified. It is certainly a must have for any collection.

It is by far one of the best releases to date. Keep up the good work.

AWESOME... but what are they still holding back!!!!!

I didn't need to read any reviews about this box set. As soon as I saw it advertised knew I wanted it. In fact it was more a case of I had to have it. And like the earlier Prince From Another Planet boxset. Which I think is truly great.

This boxset is simply AWESOME. Its just superb in every detail. There is so much stuff and the remastering, or whatever they did, have made it better than anything that has so far come out. I haven't read a single bad review of this box set. And I understand why. There is just so much 'new' stuff. Yes, bits and pieces have been released on various other box sets. But non of them, were of this quality.

7 whole concerts on CD. 1 rehearsal CD. 2 movie DVDs. Its fantastic.The CDs and DVDs are easy to take out of their slots. No messing with individual cases, This is Elvis in his prime, and 'Knockin em Dead!' Although he never liked being called 'The King', this is the 'King of the Jungle' as he should be. Caught maybe, but Wild and Untamed. This is Elvis as he was at the start of the 70s. And its all beautifully put together.

All I wonder is? What else have they got, that they have yet to release? Tbh I can't wait to find out.

I do partly agree with the last reviewer however to say Elvis was bored at this point in his career is simply not true that did not come until 1973 when Elvis was sick of performing in Vegas, remember that Elvis performed two shows a day so of course some of the repertoire and banter will be similar but his performances was faultless okay some of his 50s numbers was rushed or was he really trying to be more contemporary and keep the show flowing who knows but to hear him sing songs like Bridge over troubled water,Just Pretend,Ive lost you,Wonder of you and the rip roaring Polk salad Annie is pure magic the set also includes rarely performed songs such as Twenty days and twenty nights,Stranger in the Crowd,Make the world go away.There goes my everything and Walk a mile in my shoes.I know most of the content as been released many times over but not in this quality you also get two unreleased shows and the packaging and the book that comes with it is first class, i actually sold all my previous outings to buy this set and i am glad that i did.My only criticism is the DVDs that come with it are not the new Bluray discs that is why i gave it four stars and not five however do not be put off by that this set is a winner and should belong in every fans collection but if you are just a casual Elvis listener opt for TTWII legacy 2 disc version that can be bought for less than a tenner.

this was elvis at his most showmanship, entertainmentship (is that a word...?) naughty , tongue in cheek best
after the awful repetitive scripts of the movie years everyone was waiting to find out what elvis was going to do next
and many critics says that elvis was finished and that the movies had damaged his career , and then BANG elvis let loose with this spectacular season of concerts in aug. 1970 and proved once again to all his critics and non-believers that there is no other greater entertainer in the world than ELVIS PRESLEY.
this box set is after all his legacy to all fans of the great man,
i love this period of elvis , i even have this set in bootleg form that was titled THAT"S THE WAY IT IS ...THE COMPLETE WORKS
which has 6 C.D.s / 3 D.V.D.s , i also have the TTWII special edition 5 LP vinyl set and another 5 LP VINYL 4 C.Ds , 2 dvd BOXSET titled THAT"S THE WAY TO REHEARSE which was released in 2012 , as well as the F.T.D. sets ( vinyl and cds)
so i think you can guess how much i love the aug. 1970 concerts and this just makes my collection complete.
probably the best format of this fantastic show that has ever been released , most elvis fans shall know about these but for those who don"t ....hold on tight because this will blow your mind ......FANTASTIC
