I am betting it was more like cheap asses at the helm of the project. That and the fact that it was a horrible mish mash that actually made the first release a more popular item to be found in original form on DVD.

That guy whoever he was had actually come out and said he was trying to present a different kind of Elvis with that show. I can't remember the exact wording, but publishing on things(besides AYLT) wasn't the problem!

He is not an Elvis fan.
EIN: We would love you to clarify something for fans. We have read about your frustration in not being able to get the rights for "Are You Lonesome Tonight" for the film - which surprisingly was OK'd for "Elvis The Concert". EIN would have thought that MGM/Turner would have the rights to the film footage and surely the rights to song itself has been OK'd 1000 times before for every Elvis release? How can they say "no" to you using the footage for the video? After all isn't it just more money in their pocket for the same song ?
Rick Schmidilin: The owner of that song is not Elvis -friendly, film rights are different than "The Concert"
....This week I rediscovered our EIN interview with Rick SchmidlinProducer of the TTWII Recut.
I can't believe that he mentioned the possibility of him recutting 'Elvis On Tour' as a subsequent project. (I had forgotten that he said it at the time, it seemed so inevitable back in 2000!)
