5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsWith a (mostly) unreleased '69 concert included in the two-CD version, it was a no-brainer to pick this one up. Sure, I have all of Disc One (and the "hook" of including the "Viva" title track is still a bit gimmicky to long-time fans), but it's hard to pass up unreleased Elvis material.

No doubt it's exploiting the catalog but they've managed to put some of Elvis' later tracks into a compilation, which probably hasn't happened enough. I saw a commericial tonight for this CD during TV Land's cable broadcast of "Aloha From Hawaii" and have to say it comes off really well. No "Hound Dog" or "Don't Be Cruel" is heard in the commercial but instead things like "Polk Salad Annie" and "I Just Can't Help Believin'," etc. On top of that, with the still photos and the TWWII footage, it's yet another blow for rehabilitating Elvis' 70's "jumpsuit" era...

Long-time fans and non-completists can safely skip this one (assuming they have the masters on disc one) and it's agreed that there is a sound-a-like aspect to the '69 shows, but many who visit a site like this one won't be disappointed by this release.

3 Stars3 Stars3 Starsi have already pre-ordred my copy as a cd fan and elvis collector!-just see if the so called unreleased concert from 1969 is actualy "unreleased"?..it appears to me that it will already have been released by rca/bmg previously on the 2001 box set "live in las vegas"(4 cd set)..this 4 cd set from 2001 had the 24th august 1969 show released here for the first time1..this new rca/bmg double cd set appears to releasing the very same show from the 24th august all over again?(are we fools?)

3 Stars3 Stars3 StarsI'll only buy this latest in a long line of "genre" releases if it has the extra disc of the "unreleased" 1969 show with it.
