Don't listen to a word of what people says about This Is Elvis. Most fans complains about something with This Is Elvis and TTWII. This is Elvis is a great release the only thing is that the 1983 expanded version comes for a first generation VHS. The theaterical version is perfect from the original 16mm film.

On August 16th a good friend and I went to a little place called Turnhout, which is in Belgium. There is an Elvis shop connected to the Belgium fanclub ElvisMatters.
There I bought a new book called "Elvis On Tour '75" by Sandi H. Pichon.
This really is a little treasure. It contains loads of beautiful pictures of Elvis April 1975 tour. Fabeltastic
I can really recommend this book.

The last thing I bought was for my 2 year old grandson.
Don't ask me what it's supposed to be. I'm not sure.
It plays " I'm All Shook Up" and he's learned all the words and sings and dances to it. That's good enough for me. ;)

With so many people selling stuff supposedly autographed by Elvis sometimes its hard to tell whether its authentic or not. But That is very cool you have the real deal !!:D

NEVER!! And you know what?? As I read those books written by the MM, I kept thinking back to Peter's books and thinking, some of these tales are a little exaggerated or situations have different meaning told through the eyes of another individual. With so many around him, we have too many versions of each event that took place with Elvis. Hence, all of the debates here.

I have watched much of the Pieces Of My Life Anthology on youtube, as the maker of these put the whole 4 hours on youtube for FREE so we could watch it. I love how every performance is COMPLETE from start to finish on that set. I am happy to say my dealer has Vol.2 of the Soundboard films which is the March 21st Evenging Show, and told me he was including that for me as well, just hasn't got the DVD Cover made of that one yet!!!!!!!!:D:D:D

a 4 dvd boxed set from Europe - it has 2 documentaries, one covering early Elvis, the other 60/70s Elvis

and the 3rd disc is about and included the 68 comeback and the 4th disc is the Aloha


irritatingly, they released a separate disc with the aloha special with interviews of the band and production crew

and I couldn't bring myself to pay $20 for that single disc

when the 4 disc set was $30.

The first time I ever saw Elvis...August of 71...he sang that. I have the CD from that night...it really was a beautiful, haunting song. That was the first, and only, time that I ever saw him do it.:blush::blink::blush:

Got Elvis A Biography by Jerry Hopkins today...now I have both of his books.

Do you mean both versions of that same book? I think I saw where Elvis A Biography was re-released. I don't have that one, I do have Final Years. Do you have the Guralnick books, too? I have the Guralnick books and am deciding on whether to add Hopkins' books, too.

I did finally locate the Gold Lame McFarlane figurine, a tiny bit more than I wanted to pay, but I got it (y) and the seller was kind enough to send along a bonus gift - an Elvis wall clock! I was excited, hubby - yeah, I caught him rolling his eyes, but he hung it up in the kitchen anyway. :lol:

I notice there is a new 'Complete' edition set available now with lots of extra music and reading matter.
Does anyone know if this set contains more film footage than the 'Deluxe' edition which has been available for a while now?

I have the Deluxe one and it's fantastic.

I too want to know how this newest edition of the '68 Special stacks up to the Deluxe one most of us bought a couple years ago that had so many blank spots in the film?

Has anyone viewed it yet and is it worth getting?

Diane

Lisarose
08-14-2008, 05:03 AM
Diane, Teddy, I believe the new 68 deluxe is music only, cd's with all the takes, I don't think it's film footage.
And let me ask, since I'm still waiting for my dvd's the outtake where Elvis is singing Uh-huh and Steve is singing 'boing, boing, boing' imitating the NBC peacock notes, is the final commercial included anywhere? Was the commercial ever produced? I hope so, that has to be the funniest outtake, he just keeps singing uh-huh, uh-huh, and he gets more and more irritated :D

While in Memphis last week I treated myself to a real "goodie." The Elvis Gallery sells some really fabulous pictures. Ed Bonja is doing a few Limited Editions of his photography. I bought #96 of 2500, a gorgeous pic of Elvis on stage in Vegas, August of 73. The pic is a 16 x 20 and then it has been triple-matted and framed. It also has a gold plaque at the bottom telling what it is. I am REALLY proud of it!(y)(y)(y)
