The DVD Concert

The big surprise of this DVD and indeed the whole set is the rough 8mm footage shot by Don Lance at the afternoon show on June 10th, 1972. Considering the conditions that he had to film under, this footage is very good indeed. Though the footage in total is probably less than 20 minutes, he captured some great moments: Elvis looking iconic and almost otherworldly as he enters the stage, 'That’s All Right' is complete, 'Proud Mary'and 'Never Been To Spain' nearly complete, 'Polk Salad Annie' almost complete (GREAT finale!), 'Hound Dog' complete, parts of 'Suspicious Minds' and 'American Trilogy' and the final moments of 'Can’t Help Falling In Love'. 

Elvis looks great and very tanned in his blue ‘wheat’ suit with a yellow scarf around his neck, and right from the get-go he’s in total command of the stage and the audience. He is not as dynamic as he was in November ’71, and you can see the first signs here of the more static ‘Aloha’ performer. He came to New Yorkto sing – and that’s precisely what he did.

Though the rawness and the wild energy of the ’69 – ’71 shows was now largely gone, he was now a more consummate & all-round entertainer, a real pro who had honed his performing skills in the past three years, and the timing for his MSG debut was perfect. This footage captures Elvis at a moment in time where he still had that focus & sense of purpose, and you can see his commitment even on the early hits like ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ (some lovely close-ups, by the way).

It’s important to point out that this film is far from perfect: it’s grainy, in parts it’s blurred, and most songs are incomplete. ‘Reconsider Baby’ is only a few seconds. But it’s such a thrill to see this footage after all these years. We all know the photos from the afternoon show of Elvis bending over, ready to do ‘Hound Dog’, and now you can finally SEE it. 

Ever wonder what he meant when he said, "it just died, didn’t it", following ‘That’s All Right’? Well, now you can see that he was referring to his microphone.

There’s a lot of cool things to observe in those 20 minutes. Personally I particularly enjoyed seeing him perform ‘Never Been To Spain’ – he was really into that one, just digging the feel of the song – and the finale of ‘Polk Salad Annie’, which really captures the excitement of the Madison Square Garden shows.

In the same way that you can't listen to the 'Aloha' concert without combining it with the memorable images from the video (memorized in your head), this DVD also adds a brand new dimension to listening to both of these MSG concerts as now we know what Elvis was doing, where he was standing, and how he was performing to his adoring crowd. 

The karate kicks at the end of 'Suspicious Minds', the arm pumps during 'Polk Salad Annie', teasing the audience while bent over for 'Hound Dog' or standing right next to James Burton during the chickin-pickin' guitar solo, all add to a new appreciation of these shows.

So you are getting a great DVD with this set but the Best part is the Superb, Extremely High quality studio sound you get to listen to it with by having these Hi-Res Super Audio CDs with the New HYBRID 3 Technology. Read below so you can really appreciate what you are getting and the benefits from it.

So Give It A Try. You Don't Know What You've Been Missing. You'll Never Listen To Music The Same Way Again!
