We're talking about a slight overdub that matches the original sound as it sounded live in front of a live audience. There's a lot that could be done with the 68 material that could draw new interest. But, that would be thinking outside the box. They do not do that at Sony. Too cheap.
Too cheap? Try, too "respectful." Sony is smart enough not to disturb the Comeback special by permanently marring it with cheap overdubs just to satisfy the few fans out there that are to dense to appreciate these wonderful performances exactly as they are. In the millions of words written, praising the Comeback special, no one has ever complained that drums were too low in the mix or that it was in need of overdubs to "enhance" the experience. It's kind of mind-boggling to think that any fan would suggest this.

One of these images represents the 68 Special material. The other represents the 68 Special material painted over with overdubs.
Can you guess which is which?

By the way, Prince From Another Planet was not just targeted at the general public. In either case, preserving the historical integrity of important recordings is more important here than tarnishing the quality of some of Elvis' greatest recordings. You may need to get over that.
