"Oh, my boy!"
Reviewed by Johnny Heering

This CD features '68 Comeback Special performances that were not featured on the Memories CD or the Tiger Man CD. It features the complete dressing room rehearsal tape from June 25. This features Elvis and his buddies jamming and joking around. The show producers occasionally interject a suggestion. This was recorded on a home tape recorder, so it's not professional sound quality, but it is very listenable.

The CD also includes the "stand up" peformances that were not featured on the Memories CD. They are the same songs as on that CD, but from different performances. You can tell that Elvis really got a charge out of performing in front of a live audience after such a long absence. He gets really fired up, but he makes a few mistakes. For instance, he misses the intro of "Heartbreak Hotel" and he completly loses his place in the middle of "Blue Suede Shoes". Those mistakes just add to the charm of the performance.

Then we have an alternate take of "If I Can Dream". This is an awesome performance done to a prerecorded backing track for the finale of the TV show. The last track on the CD is the closing credits theme, "Let Yourself Go". Elvis does not appear on this track. This CD would be a great addition to any Elvis fan's CD collection.

Why was "Jailhouse Rock" the only track drafted dirctly from the original Comeback album? This does not make too much sense for me since the sound quality is quite audibly different from the rest of the live tracks. I don't see the point in using this poorly mixed master instead of remixing it from the scratch - just like they did with all the other track released on Burbank, Memories an Tiger Man...

At the time of its original release this was a must have. Now, almost everything is available elsewhere. And in better sound. No longer essential.
But nice to have.

This was and IS a great release from FTD. I was excited when it first came out and still give it a spin once in a while. Elvis at his best!
