Elvis On Tour (Again)
Another DVD of the award winning “Elvis On Tour” concert documentary was released... in Pakistan. Anything new? Design In contrary to the previous DVD of “On Tour” (a bootleg) with the “That’s The Way It Is” design this DVD has a proper “On Tour” design. A classic movie poster, as we think all of Elvis movies should have. Why don’t the movie companies release old movies like the James Bond series; a double printed design with a modern look and the classic look on each site of the insert. The menu is o.k., or should we say we’re used to it … more on that later. Content Turner Entertainment hasn’t released this movie on the digital format, bootleggers have, and according to the print on the cover of this release, this should be the first legal “On Tour” DVD “manufactured under license in Pakistan”. The strange thing of this “manufactured under license” release is that they used a bootleg DVD and copied it 1 on 1, therefore the menu looked familiar when it popped up on the screen. Good to watch “On Tour” again. Seeing the special effects, which were popular on the big screen in the seventies, we can only notice they don’t work so well on a wide screen television set. Since it is a straight copy of the previous bootleg DVD, we will skip the actual review, just read our previous one. The DVD has the original trailer as an extra track; bootleggers simply copy the movie companies on that too unfortunately. As a bonus this release also contains a CD with “talking” from "On Tour". But since the movie is a copy, this material is probably a copy too, so we didn’t bother to see if we have it in our "talking collection". In contrary to the DVD disk, the CD is (factory) pressed on a CD-R. Conclusion For now it will do, but we do hope Ted Turner has received copies of the remastered “Aloha” and “Comeback” DVD sets and saw the sales figures of these sets worldwide. We know what a wise man would do … so hopefully we will have good copy in the near future so we don’t have to settle for (laserdisc) copies.

What bothers me is that EPE has turned into a commercial firm trying to squeese as much money as they can out of Elvis beloved fans. They're realising footage at a very little rate, so that we the potential buyers have to turn to these somehow poor bootleg series, because EPE want's us to buy so much of that one product before realising a new. I for one won't have anything of. JUst realese more Elvis footagfe and material more quickly so that we the fans can enjoy it while we are stil alive. I mean are they dumb, what's taking them so long, pick uip the pace people!!

Job - are you serious ? If you are serious, I suggest you reach for the medicine cabinet yourself ! In 1972, Elvis was absolutely outstanding, and still in great shape (for christ sake, he was 37/38 years old, how good are you meant to look). And ''An American Trilogy'' was / is the greatest version you will ever here in your life. There is so much potential, to turn this into a DVD 6 Disc Special !

Elvis On Tour still not available on the Official DVD is a big Shame & Disgrace. Good for Warner/ MGM now the big $ profit goes to those smart bootleggers. They sure have a great sense of humour as well. "Manufactured in Pakistan"? I doubt, as there is not enough food in Pakistan let alone DVD Manufacturing Plants. I remember some years ago one Fan Club in UK selling "Made In Korea" boot CDs. It's high time a DVD box-set of ELVIS ON TOUR is released officially. It's a great sin to let all these precious film-reels rots in the MGM vault.

Now would be the perfect time to give On Tour the Thats The Way It Is treatment i.e. a digitally remastered and skillfully edited DVD. It would ride on the success of Alloa and the 68 Comeback and introduce Elvis to a new generation, as well as pleasing current fans. At my local superstore presently Elvis is 1st, 2nd and 5th in the DVD chart. Surely this proves that Elvis is a winner financially and if the powers that be cant see this then it is a poor show. I saw On Tour at the cinema when it was first released and have liked it ever since. A DVD of this would certainly make my, and I guess others Elvis fans day.
