Steve Binder In LA

As one of the greatest musical moments in television history, Elvis’ comeback was not just entertainment, it was the kick-start for the revitalization of a career. And, behind it all was influential director and producer Steve Binder. In 1968, Binder directed and produced the NBC television event; “Elvis” (now commonly referred to as the “’68 Comeback Special”). In celebration of what would have been Elvis’ 76th birthday, Binder will share his memories about the making of the special, share clips from the program and discuss what it was like to work with “the King.” Additionally, he’ll also discuss his work on the “T.A.M.I Show” and the now historical “Diana Ross in Central Park.”

A post–discussion question and answer session will immediately follow and Binder will sign copies of “Elvis: ‘68 at 40: Retrospective”, just released in paperback.

I am rather confused by the last posting, the many hours of out-takes from Elvis' 1968 TV special were released in 2004 on the deluxe three disc DVD set. Perhaps some people missed out on that set.

Rather than writing a book about it, Steve together with EPE should have released on DVD the '68 comeback "bloopers" (i.e. all the non-released yet, edited parts of rehearsals !!!). That would have made many of us happy, real happy... Again, bad marketing mistakes of the Presleys? Silverman and Sodens of this world. As long as they don't put a real szuccessful marketing agency behind it, EPE may have to realize that more and more fans will hook off.. There's just no longer place for Kansas hillbiloly boys to run worldwide icon-image business, called "Elvis", don't you realize it ?!?

Hope he mentions what a hack job was made out of the 'special edition' and there wasn't even an interview with him on the DVD! Luckily you can see him on various other DVD's but he should have had a whole segment on the extra features of the special edition to himself. Bring out the directors cut onto DVD before we all grow old and I'm sure Steve is quite old already.
