Biography

Elvis Aaron Presley is one of the biggest-selling artists of all-time, but mere numbers cannot begin to explain the colossal cultural impact he had in the mid-20th Century. He was a central figure in the transformation of the grey, conservative 50s into the technicolor 60s through the liberalizing effect of rock and pop music. Frank Sinatra had proved extremely popular in the 40s with young ... Read more in Amazon's Elvis Presley Store

This absolutely splendid box set, features the music from Elvis' "That's The Way It Is."
TTWII, is a cracking film, featuring Elvis third season in Vegas (Aug 1970) plus rehearsals and behind the scenes footage.
The music is staggeringly good, especially the live parts where Elvis really is spot-on; perhaps at his best ever!
This 3CD box is really excellent; with a full live concert, rehearsals plus the original TTWII album and bonus tracks.
CD1 is the original album, plus bonus tracks...and starting with the legendary version of "I Just Can't Help Beleivin'"; this favourite is still an amazing masterpiece, extraordinarilly sung and very sadly omitted from the DVD.
"How the Web Was Woven" is another beautifuls song; I really love this gentle piece of music. After this Elvis growls, "hut, two, three four" and lets rip with "Patch it Up", really rockin' on this one, with superb drumming from Ronnie Tutt.
The very famous "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" and "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" and "Bridege Over Troubled Water" are given the Elvis treatment on CD 1, and damn, these are good!
CD2 is a full concert, this is tremendous; really one of the very best concerts he ever gave. Opening with the one, two punch of "That's Alright" and "Mystery Train/Tiger Man", the King is sheer dynamite and in unstoppable form.
The big hits are here too; "Hound Dog", "Blue Suede..." plus a really bluesy "Heartbreak Hotel" and "One Night."
"Polk Salad Annie" is here also; this stunning funk is always amazing as is the recent live, hit version of "Suspicious Minds"; this is just thrilling.

This 3 disk set captures Elvis, vocally and physically at his peak. 1969 to 1970 he was at the orbit of an incredible comeback, and the tremendous exitement of those live engagements are evident on the live cuts, which are the real gems, particulary on the concert disk two which is my favourite of the set. The sound quality is excellent, and we hear Elvis and the group giving full throttle to Polk Salad Annie, Lovin' Feeling (which includes a soulful encore, which must be the envy of any Motown artist) and Suspicious Minds. Elvis chats with the audience between songs, and is good spirit. His voice deep and powerful, he pours his heart and soul into every tune with perfect phrasing. Disk one is mainly studio cuts, which have been issued before, and these showcase the different musical directions he was taking at that time.
Disk 3 is the rehearal has more good live outtakes, so they are not rehearsal at all. Elvis and his rythm band hash around with some oldies in preparation for the concerts. The rehearsals sound quality varies from poor to average, and are more of historical interest. Listen to "Oh Happy Day", and hear, the full grasp that Elvis had on Spiritual and Gopsel music. With this unreleased material which continues to surface, one wonders what else lies in the vaults of RCA and MGM - perhaps the concert at Phoenix which was filmed in September 1970? Or the live sets from Vegas in August 1969? Only time will tell!

This is a probably one of Elvis's best works. Especially the second cd, the live recordings. You get to hear Elvis at his top, his voice is great and most importantly he is having fun, and when he is, you are too. The way he does "Polk Salad Annie", "You've lost that loving feeling", "Heartbreak Hotel" etc. etc. Is just simply genius. The third cd is a jewel for the real fan, the rehearsuls. It's great to hear the man creating. The first cd is the same as the standard cd That's the way it is, but it includes extra songs:Love letters, When I'm over you, Something, I'll never know, Sylvia and Rags to Riches. Oke to sum it up, if you don't have this cd your collection is not complete, and if this is your firts Elvis cd, go for it!!!!

'Thats the Way it is' is for Elvis fans. Ignore those who say the King peaked in the late 50s and never recovered anything worthy, in 1970 Elvis was never fitter, musically mature and arguably happier. This amazing collection of studio and concert recordings represents the peak of Elvis' career. The next seven years would take their toll but this pivotal box set stands as a fitting tribute to Elvis' body of work. 'Patch It Up' and a stunning rendition of 'Suspicious Minds' which could go on for ever and ever and ever and retain its magic. After getting the CD check out the video/DVD if you haven't already, I guarantee you'll see why Elvis remains embedded in music culture to this day.........enjoy.

The side of Elvis as revealed in his Las Vegas concerts is an important one. In these shows, he proved himself to be the supreme perfectionist, that is the perfectionist who presents himself as casual and off-the-cuff. He has to be one of the very best performers in relating to his audience, and this set shows this.
There are three CDs here: The original "That's The Way It Is" with additional tracks, a complete concert, and the 3rd containing 9 live performances and a number of rehearsals.
Of course, many of Elvis' major hits are performed here, but there are many rarer songs too as well as unique renditions of contemporary songs made famous by others, such as George Harrison's "Something", B. J. Thomas' "I Just Can't Help Believin'", Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water", and the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Loving Feeling". And these weren't hap-hazard selections. These were the show-stopping type numbers that Elvis realized intuitively would go over with the Las Vegas crowds. And in each of these above selections, he puts in his own personal interpretation so that whether or not you prefer the original, you appreciate his spin on the number. For me, this is especially true with his thoughtful rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water".
Sound quality is poor on portions especially of the 3rd CD, but this is a price that must be paid if one is to have access to these rare recordings. Only a rank cynic can say that this release is merely a marketing ploy. These recordings are released because the producers felt there were those who would want them, even with the sound quality.
This is one magnificent set to have in your collection, if you in any way appreciate Elvis.
