Incredible Product - Incredible Elvis,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis: Prince From Another Planet (Deluxe Version) (Audio CD)THIS IS ELVIS - What more can you say?
This is a reminder of why Elvis is still the most important thing to happen to music, probably ever! You can compare him to whoever you like, but there is no way this guy is going to be beaten!
This DVD/CD package is so perfect! It is what fans have been waiting for, year after year. Not only for the footage (which is amazing) but for the whole release. We all know and love the hits, but Sony release more of this, please! Combination of the book, the remastered audio and the footage makes it well worth the price tag.
The excitement of the concerts literally pores out of all aspects of the package. That's no exaggeration! Even the book, full of photos and press clippings makes the hairs on your neck stand up.
The concerts themselves are full of so much energy even on Super 8 quality footage! In fact the few minutes captured this way rivals a lot of what was filmed for Elvis on Tour, on pro equipment, for the pure excitement factor.
After watching/listening to the complete package, I felt unbelievable excitement, but also sadness. The press conference especially really highlights the innocence and modesty of Elvis, the real Elvis that by '72 had reached a level of no other performer had achieved, and up to this day, still hasn't.
And I find it such a shame, that here is a man, giving his all on stage, for other people, not seeing himself as anything other than an entertainer that in the end was picked apart by others. Whether you like his music or not, wherever you rate him in music history, you can not argue that this man was a phenomenon.
I recommend this package to anyone; I would be surprised if there is a better product released in the next 18 months.
This is Elvis!
