"First let me say Scotty Moore is a national treasure.As always they have to go to England to be respected properly.Eric Clapton,Mark Knophler,Albert Lee and David Gilmore really put there hearts into it.Very well recorded and shot.Some of the other performers singing Elvis's songs are a mixed bag for me.Some have a lot of heart and talent,some are kind of creepy in a lounge lizard sort of way.I would have liked more Scotty just playing guitar,but over all this is a very worthy purchase.I saw Scotty play with the Lee Rocker band in KC a few years back and i was very happy to find this DVD.Bill Wymans band is solid throughout.Great Show!"
They did the King proud!!

"This is a brilliant DVD, in fact I have bought 3 and given away in presents also. A marvellous variety of musicians, and every one a winner. Bill Wymans Rhythm Kings are suberb and provided brilliant music to accompany the many vocalists, as did Fairport Convention. Albert Lee's wonderful vocals, in addition to his superb guitar playing, are so well suited to Elvis songs and the finale of Hound Dog with all the musicians was absolutely fantastic, Scotty Moore looks delighted!. Eric Clapton seems to be so relaxed and thoroughly enjoying the whole experience. Marc Knophler likewise, however, I must add that these paricular artists are amongst my absolute all time favourites, to have them performing Elvis songs alongside the wonderful guitarist Scotty Moore is like having your birthdays all at once! Paul Ansell has a fantastic voice also and some of his songs sound so much like Elvis that if you close your eyes the King is there with you! Not to forget Steve Gibbons who brought his own smooth style and vocals to the show, great guy! Martin Taylor took it in to another dimension with his wonderful guitar playing and the hairs stood on the back of my neck. Absolutely great stuff and there is enough Elvis material to do another using the same musicians, what a collection that would make!"
