1 Starbeautiful picture and sound but bad BAD editing. This is not , i repeat NOT, the version we all know and love on the VHS release but a 'new' version.

We have 'it hurts me' at last where it should be but gone are the sit down songs that were in the original '69 version and the later extended video version. Also Elvis playing guitar over the credits at the end is gone and replaced with highlights from the show over which is playing ' a little less conversation' - its a totally new version and totally unnecessary!

They should have just put the video version straight onto DVD with extras. Luckily I have my brazilian version which is exactly that only minus 'are you lonesome tonight' and not in such excellent picture or sound but i can live with it.
