It looks to me to be the same. I can't tell any difference whatsoever. Show me a "before and after" picture and I might be convinced.
I'm glad this was the first Elvis concert I watched. I'm definately getting the book.
And this is the new image which was released this month shsowing a new glimpse of the inside artwork:
So, I was correct when I said that some new artwork had emerged- But I think you have misunderstood what I meant by this- you said that you "can't tell any difference whatsoever". This is indicative that you thought I meant the actual artwork design of the book cover is new.
What I was saying was that a new photo has emerged showing a previously unseen angle of the book where you can see the artwork inside.
Hope this helps clarify things.
And don't worry, there is no need to thank me.
Yes, that helps clarify a lot more but I have one final question. In the first photo you posted (and in relation to the second photo where it looks like (what seems to be) to be a cardboard stand-up, does the book come with a sleeve that you can slide the book into to protect it or is it just the book? Do you know that I'm trying to say? I'm not good at describing things....sorry....
Oh, and JRtherealJR: I wasn't planning on thanking you. You didn't have to be rude and respond like that. What is this, anyway? "Pick on Tony" week??
And thanks for confirming what I was teasing you about- I knew you probably wouldn't thank me for all my hard work in putting the information & photos up.
But no worries- it's only a bit of lighthearted banter ;)
I don't have the $$$ to pre-order, unfortunately. When is the actual release date?
It's an essential purchase for me, also, because I've always loved the Aloha show ever since I first saw it on VHS a LONG time ago. Some may shoot me but, I love the mix on that VHS release because you can hear the full band (especially the backup vocalists and Kathy Westmoreland - unlike on the the 2004 re-issue where they basically sound like they were in another room altogether).
