okay http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e160/selenauno/77satelite.jpg...we all know EPE are hiding the cbs special from the world....and it will probably never be officialy released....lets imagine ..what if back in 77 they had beamed that show worldwide like a satelite concert like aloha:lol:..do you think those EPE peeps would still be hiding the special from us as ? would they have been forced to release it?..and bypass elvis physical apearance thingy its beamed worldwide would it have been released?.....http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Penguins/penguin-007.gif:king:

I don't think that would have ever happened because of his condition at the time. But had it been beamed around the world (and this is a big IF), I think it would have generated as large a audience as the Aloha Special. But it would have never happened, ever, not only because he died, but because he just wasn't in his prime any longer. Sad, but true.

If given another chance to do another satelite show at that point and time.He might have tried to get back in shape to the best of his ability. It's hard to say what could have been. I don't think it was possible either by 1977.

If the special was beamed around the world and Elvis was still in bad shape then EPE still wouldn't release it today as that's the reason it hasn't been released and probably will never be released.

Look, EPE tries to forget the 70s. I'm sure someone forced em just to release the Aloha special as is.

EPE doesn't release the special because non Elvis fans would make fun of him, the media would start calling him fat Elvis again and we've come such a long way since then.

I realize a lot of die hard fans want to see it released but I agree with EPE on this. I think the only way to release it would be through FTD that way die hard fans could get it without the general public knowing about it

I hate to say it, but I actually agree with Brian on this issue. "Elvis in Concert" was such a small, tiny part of his career and it really isn't Elvis at his best. Its sort of the same with the movies. You hardly ever see a few of the movies that he did that are really terrible --- You often see his earlier movies ("Jailhouse Rock" is on every few months!), but how often do you see "Trouble with Girls" or "Easy Come, Easy Go"??

I know he was proud of "Aloha from Hawaii", and he won an award for "Elvis on Tour" (which is long overdue to be released!), and he just comes across as irresistable in TTWII, and the '68 Special speaks for itself.

But Elvis was made to be a parody of what he actually really accomplished. His legacy isn't those last few years when he was ill and when didn't perform at his finest. Honestly, I do not think Elvis would have wanted to see it either.

I don't work for EPE I'm just stating a fact if you release in Concert then just sit and watch what happens with the media and the non hardcore fans

I personally don't think that special should have been filmed since Elvis is so overweight and he looks sick besides it pales in comparison compared to his other t.v. appearances.

I think it`s more than a bit laughable that EPE seems to be afraid of the world seeing the material used for "Elvis in concert"......it`s not like it`s been carefully hidden away all these years...just look at youtube...it`s all there...and then some......the world already knows about it. I think the real shame of it lies in the terrible job that was done in making the special in the first place.....remaster all the shows and let the people who want to buy them have the option.....At the end of the day it is Elvis as he was in 1977.....and I`m long since tired of worrying what the world in general thinks.

No, EPE have obviously made a business decision to use 73 as a cut off date of Elvis' Image. So it would seem logical that they wouldn't promote an Image that they consider detrimental.

Elvis in Concert has been shown over here in the UK many years ago, there can't be many countries that haven't at least shown a clip from this show, Hell even EPE have used clips in official DVD's to show the sad decline!
