Great package of MOSTLY previously released material
on 18 August 2014
A great package, but what a let down. Why bother releasing the same material over and over again. I now have over twenty different versions of these concerts and so called rehearsals except for the 15% of unreleased material in this box set. I was more exited 15 years ago when I heard this material on import records and CD's than the build up of this release. Why bother saying a CD recording is unreleased when it has been released in video form. It is also important to note that the so called rehearsals were mock rehearsals done for the camera to put in the film. I hope one day The Lost Performances or Elvis in Concert will come out on DVD, not to mention Elvis and the Beauty Queen. Thank-you to the wonderful people that put out these releases years ago (i.e. Bilko, Fort Baxter, 2001 and Madison just to name a few) because, those were the wonderful memories I will cherish when I heard these recordings for the first time. FDT is also a joke for releasing repetitive material apart from a few gems like Jungle Room with the hidden track, Nashville Marathon and the Disc 2 on the Classic CD releases. The deluxe packaging that RCA has put together is flawless i.e. wonderful booklet and packaging however, not worth the big dollars. For future releases RCA need market the product "Buy the new Elvis picture book and receive 6 CD's of realised material and a bonus". I am now waiting for Rapid City and Omaha to be released.
