Elvis looks in great shape from the neck down, quite trim and with the athletic flexibility to do deep leg lunges, and delivering each song with enormous emotional and physical energy. His face shows much dissipation however, and tells another story; the feeling one gets from this film is of a desperately sad man, a hurting soul, putting a brave mask on for the world. There is also not even a flicker of ego...we see only a hard-working guy, with not a shred of arrogance. He wears his flashy clothes with grace, style and humility, and sings his heart out, and it's a beautiful thing to see.
His voice is occasionally wobbly (and the sound quality also has its variables), but for the most part he shines, particularly in the songs with a spiritual theme. "Bosom of Abraham," "I John," and especially "American Trilogy" and "You Gave Me a Mountain" are very moving, and terrific listening.
His band is wonderful, and his back-up singers, The Sweet Inspirations and J.D.Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, an added delight.

This is not my favorite Elvis concert video from a musical perspective - that would be "The '68 Comeback Special". But this video belongs on your Elvis shelf because it reveals an Elvis that we have not seen in his earlier work.
Pensive, tired, still unselfishly giving of himself to his fans. The thrill is gone and it has become work. He has a constant trail of people following him, depending on him, and he has the burden of projecting that Elvis image continuously.
There is a lot of off stage footage, which shows him to be thoughtful of and genuinely generous with his fans. He looks great for his age, but he is aging, and he seems sad. It's interesting that his only apparent joy in life (at least in this on the road, tour environment) seems to be music, including especially the impromptu off stage stuff . . . singing to himself in the limo, jamming gospel backstage with the band members. He's very likeable (loved by millions, of course) and one is glad to see him find escape in some good thing that he enjoys.
The on-stage music is good but is lacking a bit of the fire of his younger years. The stagework in the video is a montage from the series of stops on the tour. Clearly some of the concerts are better than others. At some he is a bit reserved and his famous stage posturing and movement is stilted and a parody of earlier times. He is HOT at a couple of them and, again, you can tell that he never stopped loving the music. The video brings it out clearly. Quite remarkably, we also see that he is still dealing with stagefright.Read more ›
