About this deal

I think besides these On Tour shows it's just one or two winter Vegas shows and that's it for multis for that year.

So we are giving them a little more time but eventually if they don’t come around, we will release the material that we have which is pretty substantial. The first three CDs in this set feature performances from 9th, 10th and 14th April 1972 respectively; that’s Hampton Roads Coliseum, Virginia; Richmond Coliseum, Virginia; and Greensboro Coliseum, North Carolina. The bootlegs were fairly narrow stereo with almost no piano in the mix, and also with tape hum as well as missing three key tracks. The others were two years old…only You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me would remain in his set list through 1975. There’s the highlight of ”This song is a favourite of mine” and the rarely performed ‘It's Over' (the only time Elvis performed it in the tour) .EIN's in-depth review by Piers Beagley checks out the positives and negatives of this long-awaited release. Elvis' voice sounds very tinny and far off at the start of the track and then about half way through, his voice is brought back to normal. As Parker closed negotiations with NBC for Presley's upcoming television special Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite, MGM executive James T. Pictures' epic big-screen drama, ELVIS, from filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, starring Austin Butler in the title role and Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis' longtime manager and technical advisor.

Of course the most important song this night would however be the very first concert performance of 'Burning Love. Reed considered the documentary "worthwhile", noting its "excellent close-up, split screen photography". It includes the premiere of the complete rehearsal recorded in Buffalo, NY on April 5, 1972, with three previously unreleased performances.Please note that the low-res p/c scans used in this review do not show the true clarity of the images or text. However if you think you’ve seen this idea before you are right as it was also used in the booklet of the 2010 DVD/ BluRay release. the booklet was no better and I just don’t like the removal of Johnny B Good, I heard that Chuck’s estate wanted too much money?

I very much doubt this as in the notes to the Elvis on Tour box-set, no reference is made to the late great Ronnie Tutt as being drummer / musician within Elvis' band. Some of this material has been featured on past releases, though it's all been newly remixed by Ross-Spang. After fifty years from the first 'Elvis: On Tour' movie and twenty years since Ernst and Roger told us that they were “giving Turners a little more time” there are a pile of missed opportunities in this box-set. Similarly it is unbelievable that the book doesn’t state which song from each concert - and rehearsal - were included in the final film. EIN notes that in 2010 Turner finally did put out the ‘On Tour’ DVD / BluRay but for some unfathomable reason RCA / SONY did not match it with the CD box-set.

When Elvis on Tour hit the big screen in 1972, Elvis Presley was no longer the frequent cinema fixture of the 1960s, when he would crank out two or even three motion pictures a year.

After years of extensive Elvis reissues from RCA/Legacy and Follow That Dream, a proper soundtrack to Elvis on Tour is most welcome, indeed, and fills a major gap within the Presley discography.I agree that for my ears it is so good that HAMPTON ROADS is complete and in great sound - it is Damn good.
