Elvis Presley: the 68 Comeback – the Album that wasn’t supposed to be

Steve Binder, the director of the Elvis special, was promised by Col Parker that there would be no soundtrack album. This was a one time tv event, like the TAMI Program Binder had directed in the early 60s.

It marks the return of Elvis to the live stage and performing his A Game – a revitalized studio period and then The Concert Years.

This show aired on tv and blew the rating and put Elvis back on the Main Stage.

bootlegs of the un-released recordings circulated… until the dawn of home video and VHS and DVD deluxe box sets!

One of the sit down shows was released on VHS.

It was funny to me that, at the time, The Beatles were “too good” for the CD format.

 

Yet. there was Elvis – an LP and CD release $5 difference in price, CDs cost more, but they had another 5 tracks that the LP didn’t have.

 

when the music industry tried to make scandiscs and usb sticks into new music formats, Elvis releases where the first out – and when Elvis can’t sell a medium. no one follows.
