With the official release of Elvis On Tour, we now have all music movies (besides the CBS Special).
What release made you the happiest and did you watch the most?

I have watched Elvis On Tour (bluray) many times now. Eventhough I had the 'bootleg' dvd version for many years, it seems like I have re-discovered this movie with the 2010 release. I loved the movie, but now just see how brilliant it was shot and produced.
Watching the dvd for the first time made me angry, knowing that they left out all newly discovered material. But now, I'm kinda happy that they didn't alter this movie. It is stunning as it is. I only wish that they will release the previously unreleased material (shows, backstage, etc) separately eventually
I rarely watch the NBC Special (don't like the sound), but every now and then watch TTWII and the Aloha. Both are outstanding, but Elvis On Tour really is a dynamic powerhouse which gives us a good impression of Elvis On Tour.

For me its TTWII, love the energy of the comeback and love the outtakes on the duluxe edition, and Alohas visually amazing, and its great seeing the rehearsal show. I havent seen Elvis on Tour on DVD/Blu-ray yet so cant judge. But for me it has to be TTWII, i think its a great mix of backstage/on stage and even if it doesnt capture the 'on tour' excitement of EOT.

I voted for "That's The Way It Is"! I think he was in his top form then. I don't know how many times I watched it since I bought it. I always feel I can't get enough from it.

My favourite is TTWII (original edition) as it has songs which were deleted for the New Edition. Elvis looked and sang a million dollars. My second favourites would be jointly (1) The 68 Comeback Special and (2) Aloha from Hawaii. Both amazing, historic, and in brilliant quality. My third would be 'Elvis On Tour' - some great moments but never liked the split screen technique and, in my opinion, the 1970 and November, 1971 concert tours should have been filmed instead.
Being perfectly honest my most watched Elvis DVD at present is 'Elvis Lives' - brings back memories of some great evenings with Elvis, his entourage and his fans.

I've watched That's The Way It Is countless times. I love seeing Elvis being natural and happy.

Voted for the `68 comeback...but only because I made myself pick one!..very close race with TTWII.

I love all of the ones listed, but TTWII is by far my favorite. The whole movie,imo, was electric from beginning to end.

Most watched is the TTWII
I do enjoy the Elvis 68 Comeback outtakes, tho. :D
Without a doubt the TTWII SE!!!
I saw this movie twice on the big screen in a theater in 1970, seeing Elvis so vital and so alive with energy back thin I hoped one day to somehow have a copy of that film (VCRs and DVD players were not available then) then to finally have it on VHS was great-but the DVD SE was the top for me-the original version, the SE version with many different points in it-and the extra footage.

toss up between the Deluxe 68 special or the Memphis Recording Service release of the Tupelo concert
