The '50s rock crowd sometimes seems to have a problem with actual singing and singers.
I agree Vegas was a place he should have moved on from, but he did also tour all over the USA at the time. He wasn't totally holed up in Vegas. Close but let's have some perspective.
I have the same misgivings about his movies, but from what you write, we should just cue up the Sun Sessions and leave the rest to rot.
The "other" Elvis? Is that the one in those mad rhinestone suits with the bell-bottom pants? No sir, not for me. He was an imposter. I want the REAL Elvis.

I have bought these productions and they are real dvds and there are no problems with the sound. It isn't the ultimate bootleg-dvd, but nice to have.
