September 24 - Having Fun on DVD and Vinyl

The Star importlabel released the new DVD '(It's Fun) Having Elvis On Stage'. This new disc is limited to 500 copies. 

Publicity stated: A brandnew STAR dvd is out now, and it is just the thing the fans have been waiting for!

Lots and lots of footage has been released in the last months, great stuff to collect, but it is simply no fun watching it due to bad edits, out of synch sound or both.

The Star labelhas used some of the best performances out there and combined them into a great new release.Most of these performances are complete, the ones that are not have been put in very nicely for you to enjoy.

We see and hear Elvis do lots of great songs including rarities like 'I'm Leavin'', 'Bosom Of Abraham / You Better Run' and 'Big Boss Man'. 

Not only do we get great songs from soundboard, some tracks even have multi-track audio, like 'Fairytale' (Spring Tours) it is a great version and you can see and hear Elvis frustration at the end when there is a problem with the mike, he runs over to Charlie and throws the damn thing on the ground, you can hear it fall.

Other Multitrack recordings included are: 'If You Love Me' (Spring Tours), 'That's All Right / Proud Mary' (MSG Evening Show), 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'I’ve Lost You', 'Love Me Tender', ' Words' and 'Sweet Caroline" (August 1970)

The StarS team also wanted to show in this release Elvis connection with the crowd, funny moments, getting gifts etc, to give you the total "Elvis Experience"

Including performances from different tours and years. It really shows it's fun having Elvis on Stage. A total of 33 tracks and some bonustracks will blow you away!
