Elvis The Ultimate Live Collection

A new DVD is mention by the German website from Berlin. "Elvis The Ultimate Live Collection". From the Classic Rock Productions Online site: This is Elvis doing what he did best; captivating audiences around the world with his incredible live shows. Lesser performers would insist on recording and editing their performances but the King had absolute belief in his talent and ability. Throughout his career he was always prepared to broadcast his work live. This is the definitive proof of Elvis as a live phenomenon. More ... None of these performances were pre-recorded. They were all broadcast absolutely live with no edits or overdubs. For these amazing shows there was no safety net, no retakes or the chance to correct a mistake. What you see here is the most honest picture of the most remarkable performer in history. From the excitement of the live broadcasts during the rock ‘n’ roll years to the sheer majesty of the King at his peak in ‘73; this is the confirmation of true greatness.

I bought a copy of this DVD in HMV at the weekend and thought that I would offer a short review of it. The first thing to mention is the striking front cover. It is a fantastic design, one of the best I have ever seen on an Elvis DVD. Unfortunately, it's downhill from there! The contents of the DVD are split into two sections, the early TV shows and the "Aloha From Hawaii" tracks. The TV shows are shown in a random order, nothing which relates to the order in which they were performed. The producers have chosen to caption each track as they obviously think we would not know the name of the song we are listening to, even after Elvis has introduced some of them by name! The quality of the "Ed Sullivan" footage is very good, but I have seen some of the other shows in better quality on other releases.
The "Aloha From Hawaii" section starts with "Burning Love" and runs through the majority of the concert, again with the infuriating captions. The producers have re-arranged the running order, placing "An American Trilogy" after "Can't Help Falling In Love" for some bizarre reason. I can report, after careful examination, that the width of the flares on Elvis' jumpsuit have not been digitally altered! This release could have been a good one, but the producers ruined the chances they had to make it one. A DVD for completists only in my humble opinion.

I read somewhere (forgot where) that during the 1977 specials Elvis goofed up during C.C.Rider - stopped the band from playing saying he missed a note. then picked up from where he left off. Another was during the Make the World Go Away song, Elvis was expecting Ronnie Tutt to do a riff but it never came. He signalled to Ronnie to do it on the next verse. Showing his appreciation when Ronnie pulled it off. He always goofs - but he doesn't care. I love that about Elvis - always unpredictable.

This is probably another version of Elvis:The Great Performances.

I think this type of release would work well if a DVD could be produced containing literally the best of Elvis' filmed performances. A two hour DVD containing the best complete musical performances culled from his TV shows and films would be an absolute winner. The problem would be with ownership of the material. It would have to be a joint product with EPE, the various film companies and the owners of the fifties TV performances, which means it is unlikely to happen.
