Manufacturer Description

'68 Comeback Special (50th Anniversary Edition) is the definitive chronicle of the now legendary NBC-TV show, Elvis. After years of making formulaic movies, Elvis was finally unleashed to perform live again on an intimate stage with his original sidemen, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. Playing "That's All Right", "Heartbreak Hotel", "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" and many of his great hits, the sheer rawness and excitement of the performances attracted unanimous critical acclaim. Greil Marcus in his book Mystery Train said, "If ever there was music that could bleed, this was it." The closing song "If I Can Dream" encapsulates every emotion that Elvis and the entire production crew felt during the making of the special. NBC-TV's Elvis is as raw and inspirational today as it was in 1968. This 50th Anniversary Edition includes all the known audio recordings from RCA's vault and all the videotaped performances are here for the first time on Blu-ray. For millions of fans, including a young Bruce Springsteen, the Elvis '68 Comeback Special was a life-changing event. "I remember I waited for weeks for the '68 Special," Springsteen recollected recently. "I knew it was coming. I can remember exactly where our TV was set up in the dining room, the exact place I was sitting. I mean, it's one of those things that's imprinted on my memory forever."
