"IF THERE IS ONE CONCERT THAT DEFINES THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL - IN ALL HIS GLORY - IT IS THIS! I WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES THAT ATTENDED THE FIRST SCREENING OF THIS DVD IN GRACELAND AT ELVIS'S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AND I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT EXPERIENCE! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DVD TO ALL MY FRIENDS. EVERYONE THAT WATCHES THIS WILL BE MESMERIZED, FROM THE MOST AVID ELVIS FAN, TO THOSE THAT HAVE NOT EVER SEEN AN ELVIS MOVIE. GRACELAND EXECUTIVES DID THE WORLD A GREAT FAVOR BY CAREFULLY REVIEWING ALL THE EXISTING FOOTAGE FROM EACH CAMERA SHOT, AND PICKING THE BEST SHOTS OF ELVIS THAT WERE AVAILABLE. THE SOUND IS REMASTERED AND IT IS BETTER THAN EVER! THIS IS THE UNCUT ALOHA FROM HAWAII CONCERT INCLUDING THE SONGS THAT ELVIS PERFORMED AFTER THE CONCERT ENDED BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT DAY WAS REALLLY SOMETHING SPECIAL. I HAVE ALREADY PRE-ORDERED THIS RAW, UNCUT, COMPLETE HISTORICAL DOCUMENT. If you saw the first "Aloha from Hawaii", this is more than a billion times more exciting, and there is NO COMPARISON. Words can not describe how exciting this is! I CAN NOT EVER SAY ENOUGH FOR IT! LONG LIVE THE KING OF ROCK AND ROLL!"
Elvis' Last Hurrah

"I love this DVD - play it all the time. As a teenager in the 70's I was totally put off by Elvis. I couldn't relate to the "Captain America meets Englebert Humperdink" personna/music. I liked the 50's Elvis when I'd hear him - but I thought he was washed up. I didn't see the special when it first aired in '73.
Now I'm older and wiser. This DVD has everything that you could want related to the show. The dress rehearsal really kicks a#@. What an incredible band! In the actual show Elvis is a little off key compared to the rehearsal - he looks pretty nervous through the first few numbers. But then he relaxes and we get a primo performance. I find myself watching the first disc more - the uncut performances of the rehearsal and the broadcast. I never seem to get tired of it.
James Burton, Ronnie Tutt, the Sweet Inspirations and the whole gang just smoke throught the whole thing. After this, Elvis had a few more good moments left on record, but the overall quality of his work really deteriorated. This was his last peak - on video at least."
Outstanding - he's back and clearer than ever.

"I'll be brief and to the point. This dvd remastering is fantastic. You can see the pores in his skin, the follicles of his hair. The sound is beautiful. We have all already seen the concert, but not like this. Thank you, thank you, thank you goes out to all the people who painstakingly beautified this dvd to its peak visual and aural symphony. Well done and enjoy it! "
This is the moment I've waited for

"This Deluxe Edition DVD features pretty much everything you could ask for in regards to Elvis Aloha from Hawaii. You get the staged footage of Elvis arriving in Hawaii and greeting fans, which is actually pretty boring. You get the complete rehearsal concert that was taped two days before the live broadcast. Elvis shows more energy here than in the broadcast concert, but he forgets more of the lyrics and sings two less songs. You get the complete Aloha from Hawaii Concert, which has been re-edited from scratch. The show was originally broadcast with quite a bit of "montage" footage, which means multiple images from the concert seen on the screen all at once in video blocks, but almost all of those effects were removed from this version. After the concert, Elvis recorded five songs on stage with no audience, which were inserted into the concert after commercial breaks, played with montage footage of Hawaii. The complete footage of that recording session is here, complete with all takes of each song, with no footage of Hawaii. Finally, the original broadcast version of Elvis Aloha from Hawaii is included, minus the commercials. What more can you ask for?"
Classic performance with extra material--what a guy!

"This new-edition DVD set is simply great! It includes the concert version that was originally telecast in the US in April 1973, and the version shown live to much of the rest of the world via satellite (a big deal in 1973) three months earlier. It also includes the "alternate" concert, which was the rehearsal for the live telecast. These are awesome concerts performed just before Elvis' health began its major decline, showing his generosity (Kui Lee Cancer Fund) and patriotism. The first segment shows footage of Elvis' arrival at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, taped for the concert introduction. (He stayed in the Rainbow Tower there, visible in the footage.) My favorite bonus segment of the set, however, is the taping of the "extra" songs which were inserted, with scenery, for the US telecast. These were taped in the middle of the night, just after the arena cleared immediately after the live satellite telecast. How he, and his musicians, could perform so well, recording five quality songs on the spot, just after doing a concert beamed live to billions of people is astounding!! His remarkable talent and stamina really come across here! My personal favorite, "No More," was not used in the telecast and is seen nowhere else in the set. His interactions between takes with the director and musicians during this segment, never intended for public viewing, show a personal side of this GREAT performer. The credits roll over the beautiful song, "I'll Remember You," and we certainly always will. This is a classic set to be enjoyed for years."
