    This is a must have boxset. The packaging is beautiful, with informative liner notes for a good read, and each of the 4 cd's have different colours. The booklet features rare photos, and the content of the cd's is brilliant. Of special mention is the complete concert in Texas April 18, 1972, filmed for EOT. Elvis puts on a real dynamite performance for this period, and the sound is great, save a few feedback problems. Overall, you must get this boxset, thats all i can say
    sincerely, Scott, a 15 year old Elvis fan
