Six Weeks Only

Elvis - Six Weeks Only is the name of the newest video project being issued by Restoration Sound & Vision, which documents Elvis Presley's first nationally-broadcast performances on Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey's "Stage Show" variety program. RS/V is pleased to offer the first installment, which features the King's inaugural performance from January 28, 1956, exclusively at their website.

A total of six different clips (reflecting all of Presley's appearances on the Dorsey program) are scheduled to be released by the company throughout 2009. The first entry contains spirited renditions of "Shake, Rattle & Roll/Flip, Flop & Fly" and "I Got a Woman". Unlike Elvis' later appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show", of the twelve songs performed on the six programs, only three are repeated- "Heartbreak Hotel" (his 1st RCA single, featured on three programs), and covers of Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" and Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shows" (each featured on two programs).

The footage of each of the "Stage Show" performance clips has been collated and meticulously restored by archivist Kevin Segura ("Elvis - The Ed Sullivan Shows", "Dark Shadows - The Beginning"), utilizing the LiveFeed Video Imaging system. The LiveFeed process, which restores the original "live broadcast" look to vintage television programs, has previously been utilized on a variety of home video projects and network television broadcasts.

I had both problems. The link is not correct as entered on this page. You need to start at the root page and you will see the right place to go from there. I also had the problem with the video freezing on me. I had to switch to another media player then it was fine. Unfortunately I can't put it on my iPOD since that isn't the type of media player that would work. But I can view it on my PC with the alternate media player.

I can't even get the link page, let alone download anything. Anybody else experiencing THIS problem

Downloaded this also but found that the video froze several times and the audio and video were not in sync. Did anyone else have this problem?

Just downloaded this out of curiosity. I've had a bootleg file of all the Dorsey Shows for awhile. But I must say that the quality of this one is the best I've seen. Also looking forward to a possible DVD out of this set. Great job.

Don't worry Harvey, I too am looking foward to it. The DVD format, I hope, is going to be available, but I'd like to read a review of it before buying. It's so fascinating to see that meteor exploded on the little screen of the fifties, now on our plasma screen.

Downloaded mine and the quality is excellent. Looking forward to the rest. But why am I the first to post on this thread while others are filling up the 'I Believe' thread over an incomplete box set with stuff we've had zillions of times before?
