FTD concert CD and DVD sets?

Fri Jan 04, 2013 1:38 pm

From the big talk about the MSG DVD and the wish of a NYE 76 DVD - it got me wondering about major concerts Elvis did and collecting film and photos to do a DVD/CD combo. Makes me wish the cameras had been around during those seven years.

Here are some shows I wish FTD would issue or reissue with perhaps a DVD.

August 3, 1969: I doubt any footage exists of the actual show, but this is the beginning of Vegas. Still find the show better than the shows he did later in the season. You'd think a smart businessman like Parker would have pirate-filmed a 1969 show, but then again who knew they'd be so drastically different from the 1970 ones.

Houston Astrodome 1970: Another head-scratcher, as you'd think something would have been filmed or even recorded on the tape deck. First stadium show (tour show) in almost nine years.

August 12, 1969: Majority recorded by MGM, but dealing with those suits would be impossible. Still, this would be a show to have.

MSG 1972: Already done, but I wanted to list it.

Hawaii 1972: Restore the existing film, and release the concert of Hawaii pre-Aloha.

March 20, 1974: Was Memphis filmed by anyone? Fans, news, anybody? One of the first last stands.

Vegas March 1975: Never seen any film from this era. I've seen a lot from August though.

July 19, 1975: Both shows. (Enjoy the spinning guitar routine during See See Rider)

July 23, 1975: The best show of the Ashville shows. I think Elvis striped his voice, as e wasn't as good the following night - but did a lot of unusual songs the following night.

December 31, 1975: Many pan this show, but I always liked it. I know there is a good 8mm film set out there of there, and also a very bad one too. I liked the unusual stage set-up and Elvis swinging around 180 during See See Rider. Being a big arena, t should have been close-circuited onto big screens. Elvis didn't look great, but it wasn't that bad.

July 5, 1976: The final Memphis show. Maybe one of the better sub-standard 1976 shows. Elvis' voice was all bass here, but he pulled off a passable show.

October 14, 1976: Soundboard exists, and good 8mm footage exists. He got better, however, as the tour progressed.

December 4, 1976: One of the better Vegas shows from the period.

December 31, 1976: The best show of 1976, and it should have been close-circuited filmed secretly and edited for CBS. Just saying,

April 24, 1977: One of the better 1977 shows, if not the best one out there.

June 21, 1977: Still find it to be a great show, in spite of what it was. Forgot a re-release d Elvis In Concert - just privately FTD release the June 21 show.

July 31,1969 was never released on bootleg so there goes the credibility of the source. I am very pessimistic about ever getting the chance to see unreleased TTWII or On Tour footage, let alone some the other footage you mention. It will not be FTD for sure. Chances are Ernst might announce his retirement some time around 2015 and before that time comes he might want to have Elvis career covered in audio on FTD. There still is an awful lot of work to do. Apart from that video is expensive and as FTD sells around 2,000 or less copies of releases it may well be a mountain too high to climb. Chances your scenario happens are zero if you ask me.

I think all the surviving Elvis concert footage should be synched with sound but costs and returns will probably not allow it to happen.

Was not meant offensive to you Johnny, I just meant that this website is not a credible source if they base their list on such vague rumours.

What does 'Elvis striped his voice' mean??? :?:

It obviously means that it was striped and not polka dotted on that night, Tony.

Does everything need to be explained to you?

Re: FTD concert CD and DVD sets?

Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:04 pm

I really don't think that's a credible list. I know the Boston 71 show became a rumor after Elvis thought he heard Boston instead of Buffalo at the MSG press conference. I think there is a lot of fan footage out there that could be digitally mastered straight from the film sources. Would be great. I know they were about to start FTD DVD releases, but called it off. I'm very much into footage, so always waiting patiently for something to come out. I really like the latset MSG footage we got from Sony.

Re: FTD concert CD and DVD sets?

Fri Jan 04, 2013 11:29 pm

It sure would be interesting to get FTD dvds with footage - They could do audios like they usually do and which are great to every fan like us . Ftd should do Dvd releases too for the fans -I sure would be interested in what comes out -It sure would be interesting I say - ::rocks
