If you're a newbie just discovering Elvis this would be a good puchase to go along with vol. 1.
Me? I've already got all this material. No sale.

Hey Ep en Natha. Every fan has got these footage. yes maby the youngsters here but i think theire parents would have a dvd with (for example the 68 combecak-deluxe box) in the collection. But isnt that so i think the clipos should be remixed (included te spancox sound) a lot of disco light. A rapper who's talking sh... between the line what Elvis sings .And there we go. Again a chart topper. Almost every fool buys it because it brings him back in the charts.

Aaron Presley, you are right. I occasionally meet elderly Elvis fans who don't know much about DVD releases. Others don't buy the movies. Moreover there are people who like Elvis' music but are no collectors. In any case this collection is a nice gift to them. For us this is indeed nothing special; though, Steve, I don't know how to do it myself.

ok steve maybe that's your point of view, but there are Elvis fans who don't have this footage
so they are happy, i think that's the whole point for this release..and that isn't a crime..right?

Hard to get excited about stuff we've seen 1000's of times. Plus most of us can make our own compliations these days.
