I've also received the "Aloha" and "NBC Special" boxsets. They really look fantastic. BMG/EPE did a great job. And the price (60 euro for both postage included) is really good.

I haven't had time to see them all, but from what I've seen from the quick peeps is awesome!

The dvd's are fantastic and the footage is realy clear. These DVD's give you a real inside look into the Burbank and Alha shows. From all the footage I love the after Aloha show footage the most... This is more compleet than I could ever ask for...!!!

I almost didn't selpt the last couple of night but I have seen the 5 dvd's now compleet and I think EPE this a very good job on this one... :clap:

Hey JB, thanks for noticing but I'm counting because I'm going to buy them at the fanclub who has a showing of the Aloha show this saturday on a big screen, 50 square meter. :clap: It's free admittion for their members and they do it for their members because they want to thank them. (y) So I want to buy them there.

The idea was good but there are also two new FTD's comming out, so I'll save my money for them :D

TOMORROW IS A LONG TIME!!!! (n)

I pre-ordered my copies from Amazon.com and received my "Items have been shipped" notice today!!! They will be arriving next day air mail tomorrow, and I cannot wait...EXCEPT...

With all the posts I've been reading here on the board from people who already have the sets, my enthusiasm has been somewhat tempered. With all the talk about glitches, irritants and errors, I am beginning to get a little concerned...

Will let everyone know as soon as I have received them and have had a chance to check them out!

TCB!

No big worry Mike, not enough to spoil your excitement. They are great.believe me,you just cant help love them, believe me, beleve me.lalala (h)

you know now you mention it I wish these guys would have included that "Satellite bleep" before the "original show" insead of the dark screen and 2001 starting up.......gives it a little more pizzaz .IMO.

Whoa... (y)

Without giving a lot of detail, and considering I've basically just sampled a lot of the material, in short...these DVD's kick @ss!

Oh man...Comeback...wow! So much...

Aloha...the biggest impression I came away with was of the new edit and how much better it captures the action of the performance. Or, in general, just how much more it captures! It definitely showcases a lot of great unseen looks and moves and things that just weren't apparent before, and overall somehow just more energy comes across. I am now a bigger fan of the show thanks to this. Very well done!

Just wanted to give a quick first impression.

Thank you, EPE/BMG! Oh yeah--and Elvis!

Where have you ordered the set? It's weird that it's taking so long. I've heard that they already are available in some stores? But hey, the longer the waiting, the sweeter the joy.

Today is the DAY ! :)

PS : Just heard they are withdrawing the sets in EU because of the Aloha July 12 to get the faults set right ! do you still get to buy yours ?

If they want to do it right it I wish they would include the "it hurts me"(completely !) on the 68 set too. But what about us that already jumped the gun ? :'(

P.S. Annie
06-27-2004, 05:15 AM
:partytime I got them, I haven't put them in the dvd yet, just got home. But saw some great stuff on the big screen last night. (h)

Didn't know about the withdrawn until know.

Must be nice. I'm just poor and can't afford either DVD. Still paying off school books for college. What a task that's been. I tried to tape the comeback special and "Elvis And Me" (when the heck is that going to be on DVD?!) off of VH1 but wound up taping the wrong channel...so I had 5 or so hours of a basketball game and that TV show "Just Shot Me"...which I wanted to do to the TV...SHOOT IT.

Hey Circa 1956,

We cannot allow money to prevent you from watching the shows. Right now the Discs are copy protected, but in a little while hey who knows ! ;)

In the mean time if you can watch it on VHS I am sure someone among us here will be able to get a copy to you!

Tell us where you are ( a PM will do) and remember there are NO CHARGES or STRINGS attached......well Ok maybe only postage will be charged depending on where you are !

jb,

Once it's available on the net I still wouldn't know where to go to get it :lol: I'm a total nerd when it comes to that sort of thing. I'm so slow I only recently "discovered" (as if it were lost) the video library at Jordan's Elvis World :lol:

I live in Pennsylvania--I'm gonna pm you with exactly where at. If you would seriously be willing to to that I would be extremely grateful to you. My mom would be too because though she isn't the biggest Elvis fan, she loves him in the Special. She even said she'd pay the shipping if it comes to that :lol:

Thank you Lonnie :D Took forever to cut him out of that picture and forever to learn how to use the animation feature in Adobe ImageReady. Now that I know how I'll be an animatin' fool :lol: I couldn't compete with everyone's nifty clear background avatars so I just finally gave up.

This, my friends, does indeed sum-up the new DVD releases.

This is it - This is the stuff that we have all been waiting for. IMO, I don't think things will ever get much better than this.

Get the DVD's, sit back, and get ready to pick your jaw up off of the floor-boards.

MESMERIZING. A hardcore fan's .................. dream come true. These will make you rediscover what made you a "fan" in the first place ......... and ............ I have absolutely no doubt, will make yet another generation of new fans in the process.

EPE is due our gratitude & support on this one folks. No complaints, whatsoever.

Enjoy, ............. I know I will for a very, very long time.
