Ernst Jorgensen On Comeback Special And New Project

In a review of the new Aloha and Comeback DVD's the New York Post also quoted Ernst Jorgensen on the first time he watched the Comeback Special. The article also mentions a new project. From the NY Post: Jorgensen has been waiting years for this treasure trove, but he's used to waiting — he had to wait until 1969 to see the special in the first place. "In the small country of Denmark, it arrived 12 months after you'd seen it," says Jorgensen. "So I'd had the album for a year before I actually saw the show, and I freaked out completely." Despite all the advance hoopla, the " '68 Comeback Special" more than lived up to the hype. "It was nothing like I could have ever imagined because we'd never seen him in concert," Jorgensen says. "We only knew him from the movies. On the NBC special, you can see Elvis is trying everything he can to please us. There's an urgency and almost despair in it. And when you see 'Aloha From Hawaii,' here's somebody sitting on top of the world in total control. It's two very different emotional experiences. Elvis needed us in '68." These two DVD sets are Holy Grails for Presley fans, but don't think that means Elvis releases are coming to an end. In the works by the Presley estate is an elaborate multi-part documentary — a la "The Beatles Anthology" — that plans to cover his entire career and to include never-before-seen footage that Jorgensen has been compiling from collectors and fanatics all over the world. But don't hold your breath: it won't be out any sooner than 2007.

Reading those articles like above I think that he has a certain influence onto the products or is finally one of the persons who tests them.

I dont have any of the problems anyone is talking about with the aloha dvds, they are each perfect, i just wish they would have added the press conference and the tv interview, that would ahve been awesome, i think the way these 2 dvds were handled is the way thats the way it is should have been handled totally complete, and i hope whenever they release on tour it will be done like these.

great job ernest!!

Nice words, thoughts and plans EJ. But first you should try to do your work correctly. What do you say to your fault on the Aloha DVD disc 1 chapter 1, where it breaks up after 5 minutes? And what to your fault that you have forgotten to put "It Hurts Me" into the Comeback DVD disc 1 chapter 1 ? When will you have restored these discs and how can we fans exchange the DVDs ? And could you answer the question too why you don't use magnifique photographs for the covers instead these childish graphics?
