If you have ever wondered about the power of Elvis Presley live,this Wonderful new 3 CD Set will enlighten you.
For the first time ever-we have a complete 1970 Elvis Concert- and it really is a must have for all Fans and non fans alike.
Disc 1 contains the original TTWII album plus additional tracks-all in superior sound.
Disc 2 contains a complete 1970 concert again in fabulous sound quality. Elvis really gives a fantastic show full of ultra high energy performances,backed by the famous TCB band. What a show!
Disc 3 contains Elvis and the TCB band in rehearsal,very interesting! You also get some more Live performances of unreleased songs.
All in all this is the best ever Elvis release by BMG,the performances are top notch as is the sound quality,contains over 40 Unreleased tracks!
A MUST!

This is the very best compilation from RCA/BMG ever! I am a serious Elvis collector with over 60 live shows from 1969 to 1976, and I can honestly say this is the cream of the crop. Elvis was the #1 concert attraction in the US from 1969 to 1976, and that title was earned by performances like those in this set.
I bought the jewel box version (I didn't like the looks of the digipak) and while some complain about the packaging, what counts is on the inside. We get the original albumn with bonus tracks on CD-1; the complete midnight show of Aug. 12, 1970 on CD-2; and additional live and rehearsal takes on CD-3. Highlights include the following: (CD-1) I Just Can't Help Believing, Just Pretend, Stranger In The Crowd,& Something. (CD-2) A killer opening of That's All Right & Mystery Train/Tiger Man, Just Pretend, Words, You've Lost That Loving Feeling, Polk Salad Annie, Little Sister/Getback & Love Me (both feature Elvis on electric guitar), Bridge Over Troubled Water, and Suspicious Minds. (CD-3) Can't Stop Loving You, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, Stranger In The Crowd, Make The World Go Away, Don't Cry Daddy/In The Ghetto, and Johnny B. Goode.
Many people have said that these songs are just the sames ones over and over, so no big deal. While some of the songs have appeared in the Elvis In Person or On Stage albumns, the sound quality is not the same, nor are the performances. Elvis' voice is way up front in the mix on this set and the backing vocals and instruments are superb. Of the 60 shows I have (50 of them are soundboard recordings) this is by far my favorite! In fact I made my own 80 minute CD-R of the best live tracks and have played it on a regular basis since this set came out in July.

RCA has truly delivered the goods with this stunning three-CD edition of Elvis Presley's "That's the Way It Is." Along with the original album, the box set includes a complete and previously unreleased concert from August 1970 that captures Elvis at his peak - a revelatory performance that justifies the purchase. More previously unissued material can be found on Disc Three, which showcases a fascinating rehearsal with Elvis and his musicians as they run through everything from "Cottonfields" to the "Peter Gunn Theme." For Presley fans and popular-music historians, the revamped "That's the Way It Is" emerges as a landmark (and long overdue) addition to the Elvis discography.

This is a three CD collection that was released in conjunction with a DVD that was also called Elvis - That's the Way It Is (Special Edition). Elvis - That's The Way It Is was a documentary film about Elvis Presley's August 1970 concert series in Las Vegas. There was also a corresponding album released around the same time the movie came out. Which brings us this CD collection, released for the 30th Anniversary of Elvis - That's The Way It Is.

Disc One is subtitled "Special Edition". It features the original That's the Way It Is album, plus seven bonus tracks. The original album only featured four actual live tracks from August 1970, with the rest of the album being studio recordings from June 1970, most of which were performed live in the movie. Elvis was at the top of his game at the time, and this was a great album. The bonus tracks are six more studio recordings from 1970, plus a live version of the Beatles' "Something".

Disc Two is subtitled "The Concert". It is the complete midnight show from August 12, 1970. This show is described in the liner notes as "probably the best live concert ever recorded by Elvis Presley". I'm not sure if that's true, because all of Elvis' concerts from around this time were great. But this is certainly one of the best, if not THE best.

Disc Three is subtitled "The Rehearsal". The first nine songs are additional live songs from August 1970 which were not on either Disc One or Disc Two. Everything else on the CD is from rehearsals for this concert series.
