Elvis Presley 'The '68 Comeback Special' is a newly remastered companion DVD to 'Elvis All-Star Tribute', NBC's upcoming star-studded special, celebrating The King of Rock 'N' Roll's unforgettable 1968 television special.

'The '68 Comeback Special' comprises, as closely as possible, the original television special as NBC would have broadcast it back in 1968. The original special, recorded over several sessions in June 1968, featured Elvis playing the songs that mattered most to him, in his first live performance since 1961. When it aired on December 3, 1968, the special was the week's highest-viewed television program, re-establishing Elvis as a driving force in popular music.

NBC's upcoming star-studded special 'Elvis All-Star Tribute', will pay tribute to Elvis Presley's '68 Comeback Special,' recreating the iconic night with musical performances, including new performances from Carrie Underwood, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Darius Rucker and hosted by Blake Shelton. It will also showcase rare footage and interviews with Pricilla Presley and Steve Binder, the director of the original special, plus a special appearance from Lisa Marie Presley.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
