Sony Music will release a 50th Anniversary 2 Blu-ray 5 CD Boxset of the '68 Comeback Special' in November.
This definitive box-set chronicles the pivotal NBC-TV special that helped Elvis Presley reclaim the title of 'The King Of Rock and Roll'. The original special included spirited 'sit-down' performances with Elvis and original band members Scotty Moore and DJ Fontana plus then-new material, including the classic 'If I Can Dream'. The 5CD/2Blu-Ray box set offers all previously released audiovisual material from the special including rare outtakes, plus deluxe book with rare photos and a newly-compiled oral history of the making.
Elvis Presley | The Searcher will be released on both Blu-ray and DVD (deluxe digibook presentation) in Australia in October. 'The Searcher' is a 2-part, 3 hour HBO documentary on Elvis Presley, one of the most iconic musicians of all time, and follows his musical journey from his childhood to his final recording session in 1976. Featuring over 20 new interviews with Priscilla Presley, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, his former band members and childhood friends.
The filmmakers were given unprecedented access to Graceland and hours of unseen archival video footage and unreleased recordings.

Warner Brothers Senior Vice-President of Catalog Marketing George Feltenstein has provided more details on the 12 outtakes included as special features on the 'Elvis: That's The Way It Is : Two Disc Special Edition
due out on August 12. As suspected, the content mirrors that of the 2007 2-DVD set, except with a new twist. On DVD, the outtakes were presented in abysmal quality, but on Blu-ray, they will be pristine.
'The Blu-ray has high-definition, incredible new presentation
, [and an] all-new master, but we also have, with really impressive quality
, additional songs that were not included in the Special Edition. They were on a prior DVD but ... we were unable to locate the actual master tapes that had the outtakes, and, finally, now, that tape was located
, and that is now on the Blu-ray.
