And I Love You So

July 16, 2020 | Music

AND I LOVE YOU SO - Limited edition - Factory Pressed NTSC DVD set.

STAR has managed to get their hands on some incredible footage UNRELEASED worldwide in this quality!!
Other video releases containing amateur footage, usually are out of synch, to slow/fast and very VERY bad edits.

After "the good old days" when we had lots of TTWII and On Tour outtakes we did not get anything new for a long time... 

This will change now!   

Be sure to check out the link for the official trailer:  

STAR delivers an almost complete show from 1976 with a running time of 56 minutes, including 17 COMPLETE performances.
No skips and bumps so you can enjoy the man as you should! 

Most of the footage with MATCHING audio has been taken from March 17, 1976 during his performance in Johnson City, backed up with "help" from other shows from the same tour.

This "Opening Night" show for 1976 shows Elvis in a very good mood and shape, lots of interaction is going on with the audience, and you are with them during this great show!
Due to the fact that not everything has been filmed, clever edits are used to keep the show going without annoying breaks and even some extra songs were used to make it work even better.
A great result of this has to be the March 22 version (St. Louis)  of "Let Me Be There" which has some amazing close ups!

But there's more! 

We get the very first live version of "Hurt' a rocking "Polk Salad Annie" and "Burning Love" and a rare live version of the title track "And I Love You So" where Elvis stops for a while since he doesn't approve the bands performance. You constantly feel the energy from Elvis working with his new band and the Crowd.

Next to the complete songs we also get all the band solos, hear Larry Londin for the first time during an Elvis show, see James Burton making an encore by Elvis' request, enjoy the Joe Guercio Orchestra doing a fine "Hail Hail Rock and Roll" . Yes it is all there and you can enjoy it soon!

As a bonus some rare tracks from the CBS tapes are included.

Before the 'what a frog' and 'crap' brigade arrive this is what I enjoy far more than the books. I love these pieces of film, as we on this forum, know there was nothing professionally captured between January 1973 and June 1977 (a crime in itself) and so this and a limited number of other bits and pieces of any passable quality and length are all we have showing Elvis in concert for that period - so I will be buying it.

Love the video part from the end, and the rest is realy good stuff. What can I say more ? This is something for me and it will be the first time that I am gonna buy stuff from this label. And they say that there will be more stuff coming. Bring them out !

I grew up with 8mm footage .. b/w .. grainy .. drop-outs .. image-loss and all that for a lot of Dollars per hour. Today we get this footage in far better quality and often synched with 1st generation audio or soundboards. Unwatchable stuff became viewing pleasure over the decades. How blessed we are. And I also hope that the 'I don't need TTWII rehearsals' or 'I don't need any more FTDs' or the 'I don't need more sessions or more soundboards' league doesn't pop up here. Cause I still enjoy my hobby and the material-bonanza we've had and obviously still have.

I’m really looking forward to this. I don’t usually support import stuff, but I cannot see anyway this would ever be released officially. This looks so good and hope I can order before it sells out.

Perfect words, Boxcar! Complainers are a pain in the neck most of the time.
