This FTD set is was originally slated for an April 2001 release. It is now expected for sometime in July or August. Beside the cover art there's an update from the FTD label staff on the EPE website.
"The Way It Was" will be a 96 pages – 25 recordings – visual / audio documentary of the making of That's The Way It Is. With the support of Turner Entertainment, RCA Records and Elvis Presley Enterprises, we can now present Sherif Hanna’s immaculate collection of photos from the film. The majority of the pictures we have chosen are in black and white, but there will also be a handsome collection of colour shots throughout the book. Facts about all the recorded material will be included in the book – complete with notations on where each recording was originally released. The book is printed on top quality paper, and wrapped in a glossy hard cover. The format is square - 24x24 cm’s. The CD will be inside the book. It will contain songs from all of the recorded events and feature a total of 25 cuts. Only 4 of these have previously been released, but as RCA has released all they have from three of the recording dates, we had to include them if we wanted to have something from each date."
