Of course, if I won the lottery it'd be a whole different story!!

It would be nice and mainstream/FTD crossovers have happened lately. With one of the unreleased concerts now purported to be on the two disc set, I'm this close to cancelling my deluxe set pre-order and sticking with just the two disc set for now and seeing what happens...

How does the August 12th Dinner Show compare to the Midnight Show?

Did this set get a new cover? Check out amazon's link to it:

If the producers have any sense that will not be the final cover!

Hi,

I received an advance copy of the audio (as a download) and also the cover which is as shown on amazon. I guess it is the final artwork as this is what is being sent to the press. Hoping to get a pdf of the booklet soon.

I'm hoping the 'deluxe edition' banner will be on a wraparound or something on the retail/ physical edition or just not there at all really!

Perhaps this variant is just to distinguish it from the similar-looking Legacy Edition when it shows up in Amazon or similar online search results. The first version, without the artist and title information, had a subtle and classy appearance - particularly when compared to nearly every other Elvis cover.

Though I fear this new version will in fact replace the first version, hopefully the variant will instead go by the wayside like the blue ELVIS text version of Prince From Another Planet that emerged shortly before that release.

Cover issues or not, though, only one month to go!

MS Elvis was in better form. For example, MS has the You've Lost that Lovin Feeling with reprise.

Any impressions yet of the audio, specifically of the mix & mastering of the concert discs?

Yeah, I know what you mean. Although I suppose if you want a definitive of all the TTWIS material in one place this is the one to get (and then get rid of all the earlier releases). For me though, the two live shows are all I really want.

Peter, when are you going to listen to the set?

Re: That's The Way It Is 8 CD (SONY) Box Set : CONFIRMED

Sun Jul 06, 2014 9:03 pm

Hi,

Although I haven't had a chance to listen to all the tracks yet what I have heard is very good and, to me, sounds better than on previous releases. Of course, this is just my opinion and others may feel different when they hear it. It is nice to have all the material in one place and I am sure the whole package will be impressive… just hope I get sent a finished copy :)

How does the sound quality of "Oh Happy Day" on the new set compare to the prior publication of this song on the 2000 TTWII 30th 3CD set? Did they find better source tapes for the new release. Some have said they may have had access to better tapes, including MGM sources. Is this true?

Hi,

I'll check the running time and also the quality of Oh Happy Day later today and let you know.

Thanks for the insight. Do you find it just clearer or you notice a different mix?
