I got this set today and its very dissapointing, its just 8 single releases put together. Its advertised as having the best footage available and it just simply isnt. I baught the set for 45 pounds (90 dollars) and I was hoping for 19 hours of good quality elvis. When instead Ive got a mix of random releases thrown together in a set.
I was hoping to see some new footage, after all it did say "all unreleased" - and what happens, everything is old footage.
Heres a list of the thigs on the DVD's
DVD1 : Tiger Man - DVD of small clips from the 70's - all known stuff
DVD2 : I'll be there Vol1 - (Great DVD but I allready have it, )
DVD3 : I'll be there Vol2 - (Great DVD but I allready have it,)
DVD4 : Final Days (Poor Quality Rips of Rapid City and Omaha, with cbs special)
DVD5 : Live Spirits (Great DVD but I allready have it)
DVD6: In Person 1970-1973
DVD7: Coming on Strong
DVD8: Pieces of my Life
This set was clearly advertised as a, wait for it, RARE
fan club set. There was absolutelly no mention of it being a set of well known DVD's all readilly available.
I dont even know how they can put all these different dvd's together and call it their own. Its just completelly misleading. There must be a lot of people buying this set without realising what they were getting into.
As you probably know there have been some new videos posted on youtube by a user under the name of tcbhome. These are all from the DVD pieces of my life, anybody who watches them would think that they represented the whole set. That is not the case.
Also, tcbhome advertises the dvd's as new, which they are deffinatelly not, we have proof of that with somebody on this forum saying they got a copy in 2002.
I have nothing against tcbhome himself, I got another DVD from him which was fine. This is just a heads up about the set itself, it is really bad. Dont get sucked in.
If anybody wants I can post the advert which makes the set seem like the be all and end all of the import market. Then you'll be able to see for yourselves what a waste of money it is, in my opinion.
