REVIEW: In the 1960’s Elvis Presley concentrated mainly on his successful movie career. By 1968, it had been more than seven years since he had appeared on stage in front of a live audience. In his first television special, clad in his now-iconic black leather suit, Elvis performed classic hits both on stage alone and, in sequences generally regarded as the forerunner of today’s popular unplugged jam sessions, with friends and original bandmates. The program also included splashy production numbers. Usually referred to as the ’68 Comeback Special, the actual name of the program was Elvis. Taped in June 1968 in Burbank, it first aired that December 3rd on NBC and was the network’s biggest ratings victory that year as well as the session’s top-rated show. It stands today as one of the great moments in rock music history and as a stunningly brilliant milestone in Elvis Presley’s career. This special edition is the 2006 edition of the TV special: re-edited and expanded. BONUS FEATURES: *Video collection of fun moments from the shooting of the special. *Photo Gallery.
