The first clip 'Guitar Man' of course uses mainly Comeback Special footage lip-synced to the original single - but also features extra footage from Aloha, TTWII, the movies Tickle Me, and It Happened At the World's Fair, Stay Away Joe and more! It immediately demonstrates the inventiveness and fun creativity that makes this DVD so watchable.
In 'Clean Up Your Own Backyard' for instance all those annoying shots of the audience have been removed and covered with clever inserts of Elvis taken from elsewhere in the movie. This is professional work!
- 'Fools Fall In Love' is a hilarious compilation of Elvis with his delicious co-stars and his multiple silly on-screen kisses. See if you guess which film is which.
- 'Too Much Monkey Business' is another highlight ,includes clever compilation of all of Elvis' ridiculously silly moments from his sixties movies.
- 'U.S Male' Another sensational compile with the clever editing creating Elvis lip-syncing to the song. There's plenty of groovy slow-motion work & creative editing. Did I say how good Elvis looked in 1968? He's a hot-damn US Male! Lots of close-ups too, girls!
Change of Habit, this clips tells the story of Elvis getting ready to “Change his Habit” and ready to entertain on stage again, footage from ALL 31 movies are used to make it work!
And while you may think that you have seen all you need of the Comeback Special there is a stunning 11 minute medley of 'Nothingville/Big Boss Man/It Hurts Me/A Little Less Conversation/Let Yourself Go/Power of My Love' with lots of surprises along the way.

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.
