February 09 - A Study Of Elvis Presley In Concert

The Gravel Road import recordlab released the book / CD / DVD / Blu-ray set 'A Study Of Elvis Presley’ In Concert'.

Publicity statedThe book contains 136 pages thesis with many beautiful related photos, interviews and documents with extended information about “the tv-special”.  To support the thesis, we had to include footage of the aired European TV-Special broadcast and a behind the scenes interview and four clips to support the thesis. 

All multimedia material is available on the net, YouTube, forums and other dedicated sites, etc., but for easy access we’ve collected them in one place and edited it to follow the story line of the book. We tried to use the best quality multimedia available to us. 

Every effort has been made to debunk accepted “facts”. Putting facts in the right perspective as should have been done years ago. 

The question why we’ve made a book instead of an internet publication?  It’s simple, you can pick it up and show it directly to anyone who comes along with old mis interpreted facts. 

This book will help Elvis fans explain and the media to correct their opinion when reviewing Elvis’ last TV special or concerts of his later years. Anyone should pay the respect Elvis deserves for his showmanship and the genius which he really was. 

Elvis In Concert is a historical document. It has to be seen and listened to, so someone can understand the full Elvis story. It’s the Shakespearean final act of a great life. Perhaps he said it best himself in a 1961 interview with Lloyd’ Shearer. ‘Cut Me and I Bleed.’

We do hope that it sets off an idea to bring out a massive release which justifies Elvis in his later years. Right now you hold a rare study of Elvis Presley in concert, a plead and thesis in your hands.

The audio and footage are additional and limited in quantity. For quality and durability, we choose pressing in 24 carat gold when possible. All our sources are mentioned in the book for even more in-depth reading.

The audio on the CD is remastered and re-arranged according to the original setlist of Rapid City to have the full concert experience how it develops into the climax moments of the show of which we refer to in the thesis. Fan comments were removed and “Unchained melody” is added.  The footage is on DVD and Blu-ray (Same content in higher resolution.) Note: The clip of “I Really Don’t Want To Know “was our first test for the high quality audio presentation only. We included it as a bonus. See the book for more detail
