A fairly good result of his second run in Vegas.

I look forward to this album, getting the "Legacy" treatment. "On Stage" and "In Person", two of Elvis' best Live albums, in one nice collection ! I hope the sound, is remastered and mixed nicely.

As a music retailer, I was lucky enough to get my copy today, and let me tell you-this is a really NICE piece. Yes-I already have the 90s remix version of "On Stage", and the FTD version of "In Person". I am still impressed with this reissue. First of all, these two releases go well together, as the very best collection now available of Elvis' live material from his "comeback" period. The sound is spectacular; the ORIGINAL mixes sound better than the remixed (as with "On Stage') versions, and the bonus tracks are perfect choices. I love the orange RCA label on the discs, and the liner notes and art design are appropriate and respectful to the importance of these two albums. The 90s reissue of " On Stage" was very impressive, and it remains a nice alternate view of that classic release, but this is now the definitive version, with all the original banter and audience reaction from the original LP release restored in sound quality that surpasses the 90s remix, The second disc sounds as good as the FTD release, and both discs have an excellent selection of the most important bonus tracks previously released on the FTD of "In Person", the 1999 issue of "On Stage", "Collectors's Gold", "Greatest Hits Volume 1", "Platinum Volume 1" and the "Elvis Aron Presley" box set. I do not defend the fact that this is the 3rd, 4th, 5th time we are forced to buy this material to get the ultimate versions, but this is reality. It is a joy to experience all over again, thanks to the superb presentation this release offers. Sell your previous versions if you must to buy this one, but at such a reasonable price, you won't really need to. Just buy it, and re-live the excellence of these two live albums with many added bonuses and enjoy your life more. Legacy releases of Elvis are proving once again to be well worth the re-investment.

My only problem with this set was that it seemed whoever created it never actually listened to them before. They left the dialogue leading into the songs at the end of the previous songs.

Sounds great! Could someone explain to me why most of the bonus tracks on disc 2 state they are taken from FTD release "Elvis In Person" and state they are from the August 23rd dinner show, and the actual FTD release states they are from the August 22nd dinner show? I am refering to selections 13-16 on disc two of the Legacy Edition. So, what is it Aug 22nd or 23rd?

I LOVE THIS SET!! I have always loved both albums but they've never sounded better. The 90's remix version was cool and all but I disagreed with the mixes. These sound like the original mixes, just remastered. If they have been remixed, they were done with great care to be faithful to the original. I read that someone got an "Alice In Chains" CD instead of Elvis on disc 1. Instead of being mad, if I were you I would keep it and buy another set at Walmart. The reason I say this is because honestly that "Alice In Chains" mistake version is probably going to be worth money to collectors later as crazy as that sounds. Mistake CD's happen and there are several instances of them being valuable later.

I also got this great set, but it took 4 times to get it right. I bought mine in Waynsboro PA at Walmart. The first three had the Alice In Chains cd as cd one. I never thought to keep it because of future value. Oh well, dummy me. Either way, this is a great live double cd. Sound is great and elvis is so alive and having fun........PEACE

Production errors sometimes occur. That is why I'm never first in line to buy anything. I've got the corrected version. It's great. Five stars!
