Hello, folks
I read somewhere on this board about these. Never heard before of it.
Are these cd-r`s ? Has this material been released elsewhere ?
did they use video sources ?
Does anybody know the exact contense (take no.s) ?

I’m fairly sure this is a CDR release. I couldn’t find a track listing, but I found some information on a website stating that this CD includes “25 takes from Burbank June 20-23, 1968”.
These were the recordings of the production numbers that Elvis then lip-synched to during the recording of the special. As RCA have released at least one version of all these tracks officially, and there have been bootleg releases of similar material in the past, I would guess that the disc is compiled from various previously issued sources.
