Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 27 August 2004
I came across this film as I flicked through the TV channels one evening. I originally missed the first half of the film but even coming in half way through I was hooked.
After watching the film, I immediately ordered it from Amazon. It turns out that first third of the film is footage of the build up and rehearsals for the Las Vegas concert - it is nice to see the man himself laughing and joking with his band members and friends, you get to see a different side to the normal staged interviews and performances. The remainder of the film is made up of footage from a couple of performances Elvis made at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1970 and is absolutely magnificent. Most of the Elvis staples are there (Heartbreak Hotel, Suspicious Minds, etc) mixed in with some of the lesser remembered songs. All songs are given with so much fun and energy; it is easy to see why people still consider Elvis Presley to have been the ultimate showman and performer.
Put the film on, turn off the lights, wire the sound through the stereo if possible and just take it the spectacle of it all. I always say that given a time machine, one of the things I would like to do would be to go to an Elvis concert (I was not even born in 1970!) when he was in his post Hollywood concert tour semi-comeback phase. This DVD is nowhere near as good as the real thing would have been but it is as close as we are going to get and for that it is wonderful.
This is how people should remember Elvis.
