In 1969 Elvis made his triumphant return to live performances following his recent and successful TV special 'Elvis' nowadays better known as his '68 Comeback', in which we saw a Elvis that was unleashed and unplugged, singing his guts out like a roaring tiger, the real Elvis was back after years of making formula movies, Elvis returned with a passion that had been gone for quite some time. The next step was Las Vegas, Nevada, Elvis would perform an almost month long engagement from July 31st until August 28,
In the city that he failed to win over back in the 50's. Obviously nervous, Elvis would be performing twice a day, but would the audience accept him this time? The answer is a definite yes! Elvis sold out show after show, and the audience was ecstatic, with a new band selected by Elvis himself, and backing vocalists, Elvis conquered Las Vegas, singing his older hits Jailhouse Rock, Don't Be Cruel, All Shook Up and Heartbreak Hotel but also recent hits like Suspicious Minds and In The Ghetto, while also showing some of his roots by playing the electric guitar, and performing select covers of artists and music styles that inspired him. Elvis showed the audience that he was still as great as ever.

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.
