Exciting news to say the least, I´m anxiously waiting to watch these great performances from a time when television was something extraordinary. Thanks Sofa!

Wonderful but, I can never watch the Steve Allen Show..painful. So, I hope they don't bring that one out.

Great artwork! Great news. The Little Gaelic singers must be all growed up now. Reading Elvis news on google.com where a certain Elvis Presley 25th Anniversary Declaration rides high. Just chancing my arm as we say here in Irelandtoo :-)

I hope the running time on the January 6 1957 version of Don't be Cruel is wrong because if i recall Elvis did the full version and not a 50 second version. Other than that its a very cool release and i'm glad they're giving us the option to play the elvis songs by themselves.

Best news in a long long time! Finally the medley from the last show which I havent seen since 1957. Wow is all I can say!

Wow! This is the best Elvis DVD since the release of the deluxe editions of "Elvis" and "Aloha From Hawaii" two years ago.

Smart move EPE- this one's gonna sell like hot cakes! It will be even better if they colorized the whole things as well? Let the DVDs have BOTH the b/w original versions and the new color versions. x

Finally justice is being done to these historical performances. Let's hope the same treatment will be done to the Dorsey/Steve Allen/Milton Berle shows. Hopefully in our lifetime!

Every crap has been released on DVD. I wonder why it took 50 year until somebody came up with the idea of remastering these historic shows.
