Customer Reviews

We loved it and my brother loves it too.
Gary and Valerie Streff
I was surprised to see that there's even an option to listen to it in 5.1 Audio, which I recommend you do, because it enhances the quality of his music even more.
luginla
A lot of unseen footage, including the earliest footage ever taken of Elvis, and the last footage ever taken of him.

I really recommend you buy this DVD! If you're an Elvis fan (I am!) or simply admire good music, then you will love "Elvis- The Great Performances". Not only it includes more than 30 performances of his greatest hits and other bonus features, but also the quality of it is superb. The videos were great and it really made me feel like I was a part of those performances. I was surprised to see that there's even an option to listen to it in 5.1 Audio, which I recommend you do, because it enhances the quality of his music even more. I'm very happy and satisfied with my new purchase.

I love this Elvis collection. This DVD set includes some of Elvis's most classic performances from 1956 all the way up to a few weeks before he passed away. It really brings me back to the time when he was the hottest thing on the music scene. A nice bonus in this collection are the interviews with his close friends and musicians and the personal home movies of Elvis. Definitely worth the $15!

Format: DVD
I think this release is an excellent collection for the longtime fan as well as those new to Elvis. This new edition takes the first 2 of the "Great Performances" specials and remasters most of the video, and adds interviews with some of Elvis' fellow musicians as bonus features. This doesn't include the 3rd "Great Performances" special, but that one consisted mostly of Elvis' Ed Sullivan appearances, which are easily found on the Elvis on Ed Sullivan DVDs. Its good to have these specials back on the market since they were hard to find new for a while there, and the remastered video looks very nice. With these you get a some of every era of Elvis, so it provides a good overall picture of him as a performer. Thumbs up!

I really enjoyed the new bonus material and Elvis sounds incredible in 5.1 audio. My favorite Presley performances were:

1. Suspicious Minds
2. Don't Be Cruel
3. Return To Sender

"Ready Teddy" on The Ed Sullivan Show is also an all-time classic. I'm happy with my purchase and don't have any real complaints at the moment. For those reasons I have to give it 5 stars!

Format: DVD
Of course 2 hours of Elvis (why it is on 2 DVDs is just to give the impression of more and charge more)....is always 5 stars! My rating is because until I stuck it into my player I had no idea I was repurchasing DVDs I've owned for years with different artwork etc. If you have the 3 Elvis DVDs or the 3 DVD set...Elvis - The Great Performances Box Set you have all this so SKIP!

My one star rating is to try and make others take a second look.....and make sure before buying. I can't imagine any fan already not owning these.

Its obvious by the low helpful rating that people aren't reading my review but are ELVIS fans who think I'm bashing the King. As I said in my review...its just to let others like me who jump on anything new ELVIS ...check before wasting money. The one star isn't going to hurt Elvis....its to help.. excuse me.

I love Elvis, and I love the footage. But I have absolutely no idea why performances of Elvis onstage and from movies are sometimes overdubbed with Elvis singing the same songs in studio. It ruins the charm of "great performances." Sorry to two greats who put this together, George Klein and Jerry Schilling.

There are a number of great Elvis collections out there, but this one is my favorite for the following reasons:
1. Spans just about his whole career from when he was taking off in 1956 to right before he died
2. Includes home videos of Elvis with friends and family - really gives you another side to the man
3. Really interesting interviews with legends and friends of Elvis like Jerry Lee Lewis & Sam Phillips
4. You really can't get more Elvis performances and songs for this price.

This collection is a treasure for everyone who loves Elvis and also for those who are not familiar with his wonderful work. He is the greatest entertainer who ever lived...with no doubt!
