Elvis on Tour 9 CD Box Set




The Amiga International import-label announced the release of a new Deluxe 9 CD Box set entitled "Elvis on Tour - 45th Anniversary Deluxe Edition". This 13-inch boxset contains all known recordings made for the concert documentary "Elvis On Tour" and comes with a huge 128-page hardcover book. Due for release on December 28th 2017.

From the press-release

Amiga International releases a long awaited limited edition boxset featuring 9-CD’s, all remastered, of all known recordings made for the Golden Globe Award-winning concert documentary "Elvis On Tour". This will include the premiere of the complete rehearsal recorded in Buffalo, NY on April 5, 1972, with three previously unreleased performances. The 13-inch boxset also includes a huge 128-page hardcover book containing detailed essays of the entire April 1972 tour with rare and unpublished photographs and related memorabilia. When considering the lack of attention paid to this concert documentary, it seems a shame that so few official releases have emerged. It is for this reason that Amiga International presents this deluxe package to honor the excellent recordings made for the much neglected "Elvis On Tour" film. The audio / visual experience is undeniably the quintessential overview of the making and scrutiny of this extraordinary glimpse of Elvis as master of his art. This highly anticipated boxset will be released on December 28th 2017
