Review of both Complete Shows and Rehearsals sets

Review

NOTE the following review is of both 'That's The Way It Is : The Complete Shows' and 'The Rehearsals' and is a good overview.

I've just had the opportunity to watch the 9+ hours of video (exhausting but intriguing as well) and think I can provide some accurate details to the questions being asked:

- The focus of the video is Elvis. If a camera angle with Elvis in it exists, then that is what is seen on the screen.

The picture quality is the best you will ever have seen of these outtakes (and I've purchased over 50 discs of this material over the last few years spending over $1,500). The footage has either come from an earlier generation copy or has been extensively remastered to improve sharpness/colour/reduce graininess, etc (or both). It is not as good as SE of course (except for the portions in the edits borrowed from the original discs) but significantly better than what we have had before.

The edits are all created 'new' from scratch. Nothing has been taken from previous (Crap) Star or other releases. There is at least 3 hours of new footage without 'Property of Turner...' and perhaps about 30 minutes of footage never before seen. Some of the completely 'new' footage that I can remember includes: 'Something' from Aug 10; 'some extra telegram' reading;

Great Idea !!!! 'Love Me Tender' complete from Aug 12ds without 'Property of Turner...'
Great Idea !!!! 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling' complete from Aug 12ds (TTWII SE was a splice of Aug 12ds and Aug 11ds);
Great Idea !!!! 'new extra dialogue' before 'Twenty Days And Twenty Nights' on Aug 12ds;
Great Idea !!!! 'extra dialogue' before 'Heartbreak Hotel' on Aug 12ds;
Great Idea !!!! 'Hound Dog' from Aug 12 ms but mainly the band;
Great Idea !!!! 'dialogue and complete instrumental' before and after 'Polk Salad Annie' Aug 12ms
Great Idea !!!! 'Heartbreak Hotel' Aug 12ms (to this date I've never seen the first bar of the song with Elvis in the picture, always the audience
Great Idea !!!! 'Love Me' / 'Words' / 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' Aug 12ms without 'Property of Turner...'
Great Idea !!!! 'Lot of New dialogue before 'The Wonder of You' Aug 13ds
Great Idea !!!! 'Can't Help Falling In Love' more complete Aug 11ds
Great Idea !!!! 'Love Me Tender' Aug 11ms
Great Idea !!!! 'I Just Can't help Believin' Aug 11ms
Great Idea !!!! 'I'll Take You Home Kathleen' - a few lines Aug 7 rehearsal
Great Idea !!!! 'Lot of clips' with original sound from Aug 14MS that were new to me.

Probably a lot more but these clips stood out in my mind.

There is no cropping of any pictures. In the 3 angle sequences, the main angle is raised to the top where the widescreen black bars would normally be seen. The 2 additional angles are at 50% size and below the main normal sized angle. Talking about angles, there are lots of new angles throughout that I had not seen before.

Sound throughout is excellent to my ears except with Aug 14MS which is 'camera' sound. The rest has to be from BMG source but the mix is different. Live material played surround on a Dolby digital 2x receiver.

- 3 angle screens seem to be in perfect synch
- The picture looked very good on a 65-inch screen and better than what I've seen before
- some of the songs (perhaps 5-6) do not have original Elvis footage but rather nicely created videos from candid/band/audience/Vegas clips to create more complete shows for Aug 11 and 12.

All the rest are complete Elvis songs presented in multi-angle and single angle depending on what was available.

Don't expect Turner quality throughout
Expect better quality than you've ever seen before
Expect excellent sound in stereo (except for rehearsals which are a combination.)
Expect perfect synchs
Expect complete songs in order
Expect lots of new footage without 'Property of Turner...'
Expect seamless transitions from multi angle to single angle
Expect a box set that you will value for many years to come
Expect to be able to see where Turner/MGM did their splices and the proper order here.
