Hello Martin, the old boxset "The Complete Works" presents way more than 6 songs per concert shot for the documentary. The real truth around MGM not releasing more material is a big mystery. They took years to do that on the special edition (when everyone thought that theatrical version and lost performances was all there was). I'm inclined to believe there's still more stuff somewhere.

There is a good (and sad) reason a complete concert hasn’t been released. As Rick Schmidlin, the producer of the special edition of TTWII says in The Man and his Music (December 2000): ‘No concert had more than six songs shot. They shot six songs at most, and then they moved onto the next night. Also there was ‘a lot of out-of focus material, and a lot of wide shots where Elvis is a pin dot on the screen. (… ) You also have to realise that the camera is loaded with 20 minutes of film, and they did not change camera loads, generally, throughout the show. So that’s the thing people don’t understand… the nature of the material.’

TTWII was originally filmed for the cinema and for 50 years we have not had a complete concert, which would really interest me it would be 1 or 2 blu ray with a concert and other new images ...

Do not collect huge books, so this is not for me. As for unreleased performances, they are just going to be songs we probably have other outtakes on. Now if it said unreleased newly discovered songs never performed by Elvis, I may consider it. On second thought, nah, too expensive.

I just don't feel a need for this. So, I won;t be buying.

I guess I'd better place a mortgage on my house to get this. And "many rare and unreleased performances"?! Yes, of course. There's quite a few burps from Elvis we've never heard before!

This book release has 8cds that apparently include all the rehearsals etc and has many unreleased performances. While we have the best of these recordings, it will be great to have everything in one place. And these FTD books are always very well made and a joy to have. It will be expensive I guess but I am really looking forward to it. I read somewhere that the mainstream "From Elvis Is Nashville" 4cd Sony release will include undubbed versions of the all 1970 Nashville recordings. If this is the case, I'll be looking forward to this as well. We already have all the live recordings. Maybe a "complete sessions" from 1970 will follow from FTD?
