Of all the live concert recordings released by RCA during Elvis Presley's lifetime, none carried the historic significance of his long-awaited New York City shows at Madison Square Garden in June 1972. Now, a pair of hour-long performances have finally been coupled in one package for the first time as Prince From Another Planet: 40th Anniversary Edition.
Prince From Another Planet takes its title from a New York Times headline that accompanied its rave review of the King of Rock 'n' Roll's four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden (80,000 tickets sold), the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972. CD two reprises the Saturday night show in its entirety, some 20 songs (plus introductions) originally issued on LP on June 18, 1972, just eight days after the concert took place. CD one reprises the (slightly longer) Saturday afternoon show, some 23 songs (plus introductions), archived and issued for the first time 25 years later in 1997, on CD.
Accompanying the two CDs is a bonus DVD that presents unseen footage of the Saturday afternoon show, captured on hand-held camera by a fan, and now acquired by Legacy from that fan decades later for this package. Rarely is unseen footage of Elvis in concert discovered, so this footage lends historical importance to the package. The film is a revealing portrait of a physically commanding Elvis and his power house TCB Band, background vocalists, and orchestra.
20 minute "mini documentary" featuring footage from the June 9th press conference, the June 9th evening show, the June 10th afternoon show plus new interviews with Lenny Kaye, James Burton and Glenn D. Hardin, Joe Guercio, and Jerry Schilling.
The complete NBC-New York film of the June 9th press conference. Approximately 12 minutes.
The June 10th afternoon show (complete audio) with approximately 20 minutes of fan-shot 8mm film synched with the newly mixed audio, including a complete performance of "That's All Right".

Can't believe he was able to get in with a camera. They watched eveyone so closely and it was forbidden. He must have known someone. I was only able to sneak in audio casette tape recorders for those of you who know what this is. The included booklet contains some fascinating background to this weekend of the King in New York for four sold out concerts totaling 80,000 fans! The fist time anyone sold out four shows at the Garden. Don't know if it has ever happened again.
I highly recommend this piece of music history from, and of the King!
These music, I listened in real time, being revived with clear sound for the 40th anniversary, makes me recall every events and happenings in early seventies. Richard Nixon visited China in July '72, one month after this shaw. Five months before, Shouichi Yokoi, a left alone soldier of the second World War, was discovered alive in the jungle of Guam. Though the world began moving for the thaw, Japan was still struggling to wipe off vestiges of the World War from it's mind. There was nothing left for the Japanese other than looking forward to our bright future. We saw something similar to our recovery from the defeat in his come back concerts. We were greatly empowered by his performance at that time.
At the time the global bad economy and climate issues are blocking our way, I wish younger generations perceive something confident and powerful to solve these problems from his stage. Attached DVD is delicate to judge. You can feel forefront technology in cleaning old shot of hand-held camera and synchronizing with remixed audio. You'll experience similar excitement of the night as the shooter from fuzzy image. However, the too long black screen with the sprocket holes on the left side weaken my energy to see them thoroughly.
