I ask this because that is the "only way you could know 100% about anything concerning releases by Sony"-everything else is a surmised guess (educated or otherwise) We all have them-sometimes they end up correct-other time way off base.
If you knew "100% from sources within Sony" and had said as such-the skeptism would have been non-existent. You never said this.
If you knew "100% as fact" that a DVD of "unreleased concert footage" was to be part of the set-and said so with sourcing from Sony-my skeptism would have been non-existent-the DVD of "unreleased concert footage " makes all the difference in the world to the idea behind releasing the set-so close to selling nearly 500,000 units at $5 bucks a piece. My thoughts as a man who has been involved in business still make sense considering I had no knowledge of consequence about any 100% sure DVD inclusion with unreleased concert footage" That would have changed my thinking-because it changes the mathmatical equation 360!
Now having said that-let me say this, if the footage ends up being blurry, not synced well and not edited for maximum viewing pleasure-this set will not do well....
The hype so far has been toward "fans" ........the surprise about the footage is what the buzz is about (and that so far is working) but not much is going on to get others interested in this release-perhaps that will change-but if the footage ends up as I said blurry, choppy etc-then this will not be a big seller to those "others"
Isn't that the idea of this type release-remastered, better sound, better mix-.........video to introduce Elvis to new potential fans?
As far as negativity....isn't introducing the thought that Lisa may be perceived as lying with her "nothing in the works" statement introducing negativity toward Lisa?
I read the rumor you posted from unknown sources and did not think Lisa was perhaps lying-until you brought up the subject.
IMO Your post could have stood alone without that statement and your information would be totally intact. But that last statement brought negativity into the post that really is speculation. IMO
