This DVD is most likely for the "die hard" fans, it has some great footage of Elvis and the stories told by Elvis' buddies are great to hear, but the DVD is not in full color as stated on the cover, in fact, the only parts that are in color are the interview segments with Elvis' friends, the footage of Elvis is in black and white.
The booklet that is included with this DVD, (although worth seeing) has only black and white photos as well, not full color as stated and the 55 minute audio documentary included, is in my opinion, unnecessary, because most of it uses interview segments already seen in the DVD and The CD that is included, has been previously released.
The thing that makes this DVD special, is the army footage of Elvis that is included, that alone makes the DVD worth buying.

Reviewer: George from Carmel, ME United States
The Missing years is basically a bunch of old army buddies talking about there experiences with Elvis. There is no Elvis music and the film footage that is used of Elvis is in not so great quality. The Elvis impersonator's singing is pathetic and sometimes annoying. The CD that comes with it contains Elvis interviews and Louisiana Hayrider material which has been released several times. Matter of fact it's the same cd that camein the 1993 book 'Private Presley', except with a picture disc. Basically if you're not a true Elvis fan. Avoid this release.

Hi folks, this dvd is only for diehard fan's like myself who wish to see anything with Elvis in it. It has some cool unseen footage in it, like Elvis being sworn into the army, getting onto the ship heading to Germany, home movies shot by Eddie Fadal during some of Elvis' visits. There is no Elvis music in the dvd, its a cheap impersonator which is a letdown. The audio disk is just another rehash of the early Elvis, Scotty, Bill live. All in all, i'd skip this and wait for "this is elvis" to be released on dvd. Pretty cheesy stuff here. This is only for diehard fans.
