Looks good. I definitly will buy it. We get some unreleased material from 3 or 4 shows which we only got in parts but now complete. As it is I heard someone whine cause the box is not i Lp format. Come on ! It´s Elvis in his prime and the package is a beauty.
This does look a stunning set and I certainly will buy it. Good work sony but please don’t charge us a fortune. Very small improvement could be a different picture on each disc instead of alternating pink and orange imo. Can’t wait.
I bought all the RCA/BMG/Sony/FTD releases of the Elvis '69 material through the years. I've got enough. I'm through buying box sets. No matter what the occasion.
There will be another anniversary, the 1969 studio sessions. And as a download we get a lot of these sessions in august too. It fills 5 CDs. Not for free as you may think. And I guess that we will get the complete sessions in the future from our favourite laber ftd.
Hi ! I am from France and have pre ordered my copy for 81,90€.
~ Any American fans looking for a great deal on this set would be wise to order from Amazon UK instead of Amazon U.S. Right now Amazon UK is offering this set for only £65.68 + £4.80 postage to the U.S. That converts to only $88.83 U.S. dollars! ... I ordered it simply because I couldn't resist that price.
Amazon UK now selling at £91.84
circleG, the price is actually £76.53 (currently). You have to login to Amazon.co.uk and click "Pre-order now" to see the reduced price.
The price of this set is going up and down like a yoyo on Amazon.uk. Not seeing £76.53 TheMemphisFan which is a real shame as I was about to order with a £10 gift voucher. It's currently £92.26 (unless you apply for an amazon credit card and get £10 off). This is the highest price so far!
Again... the Amazon UK price is currently about £76. You must LOG IN and then click "Pre-order now" in order to see the reduced price.
I did try and do exactly as you said TheMemphisFan but still could not get that price from Amazon UK However I have found it and purchased even cheaper. I've just pre ordered through zoom.co.uk (owned by universal studios) for £67.50 and postage is free! You have to sign up for newsletters to get a 10% discount on your first order but even without doing that, its still only £75.
Milky White Way, congrats on finding an even better deal elsewhere. It pays to shop around.
