Elvis: That's The Way It Is - The Complete Works - 6CD/DVD/book set - Video (including quality) Update.



Details of the Video Footage: I've just had the opportunity to watch the 9+ hours of video (exhausting but intriguing as well) and think I can provide some accurate details to the questions being asked:
-the focus of the video is Elvis. If a camera angle with Elvis in it exists, then that is what is seen on the screen.

The picture quality is the best you will ever have seen of these outtakes (and I've purchased over 50 discs of this material over the last few years spending over $1,500). The footage has either come from an earlier generation copy or has been extensively remastered to improve sharpness/colour/reduce graininess, etc (or both). It is not as good as SE of course (except for the portions in the edits borrowed from the original discs) but significantly better than what we have had before.


The edits are all created 'new' from scratch. Nothing has been taken from previous Star or other releases. There is at least 3 hours of new footage without "Propert of ..." and perhaps about 30 minutes of footage never before seen.

Some of the completely 'new' footage that I can remember includes: "Something" from Aug 10; "some extra telegram" reading:
"Love Me Tender" complete from Aug 12ds without Property..;
"Lovin' Feeling" complete from Aug 12ds ( T T WII SE was a splice of Aug 12ds and Aug 11ds);
"new extra dialogue" before 20 days on Aug 12ds;
"extra dialogue" before H Hotel on Aug 12ds;
"H Dog" from Aug 12 ms but mainly the band;
"dialogue and complete instrumental" before and after Polk Salad Aug 12ms
"H Hotel" Aug 12ms (to this date I've never seen the first bar of the song with Elvis in the picture, always the audience
"Love Me/Words/Lonesome T onight" Aug 12ms without Property..
'Lot of New dialogue before Wonder of You" Aug 13ds
"Can't Help Falling" more complete Aug 11ds
"Love Me Tender" Aug 11ms
"Believing" Aug 11ms
"I'll Take you Home Kathleen"-few lines Aug 7 rehearsal
"Lot of clips" with original sound from Aug 14MS that were new to me.

Probably a lot more but these clips stood out in my mind.

There is no cropping of any pictures. In the 3 angle sequences, the main angle is raised to the top where the widescreen black bars would normally be seen. The 2 additional angles are at 50% size and below the main normal sized angle. Talking about angles, there are lots of new angles thoughout that I had not seen before

Sound throughout is excellent to my ears except with Aug 14MS which is 'camera' sound. T he rest has to be from BMG source but the mix is different.
Live material played surround on a dolby digital 2x receiver.
-3 angle screens seem to be in perfect synch
-picture looked very good on a 65 inch screen and better than what I've seen before
-some of the songs (perhaps 5-6) do not have original Elvis footage but rather nicely created videos from candid/band/audience/Vegas clips to create more complete shows for Aug 11 and 12. All the rest are complete Elvis songs presented in multi angle and single angle depending on what was available.


Don't expect Turner quality throughout
Expect better quality than you've ever seen before
Expect excellent sound in stereo (except for rehearsals which are a combination.
Expect perfect synchs
Expect complete songs in order
Expect lots of new footage without Property..
Expect seamless transitions from multi angle to single angle
Expect a box set that you will value for many years to come
Expect to be able to see where Turner/MGM did their splices and the proper order here

I've still yet to see a detailed review of the music cd's.

I listened to the 3 songs that were played on EER last Friday, but with them being streamed @ 32kbs, my ears couldn't really get a sold grasp on the true quality.

Are they mixed down versions from the mastertapes, stereo, mono, soundboard????????????:hmm:

Yep I heard those tracks on EER aswell Steve thought they sounded fine to my ears..although I think they will sound better once you put the CD's on the player and play them...probably broadcasting it over radio may have brought the sound quality down, but I thought they sounded great anyways...
