The thing is, my guess is the soundboard's
from the early 70's will not be of the same
quality as the latter soundboard's,
Which would mean the latter would be better...
But, wouldn't the early be a better quality
performance because of what we are
working with, an so isn't that more important?
I would love for FTD to release a show from the 1970 tours. I just didn't think they had any in their possession.
AMEN! Keith, I just hope he realizes some fans are appreciative of ALL of his efforts and that the Elvis World would be lost without him.

Finding them is another! Back in 1990, searching the vaults in Indy,
Ernst, Roger and me only eyed a couple of reels that contained half
shows from jan / feb 70. None of the 1970 tour shows were there
at the time. Im not working for FTD. They might have found/ bought
additional tapes in recent years... but had that been the case, and tapes
turned out to be in decent/ good quality, FTD would have released
one/ some, dont you think so...?

He cares, because first and foremost, he's a fan

With respect to the Phoenix show of Sept 9th 1970....You would think RCA would have recorded this in the same way they did the Vegas shows for the movie, would they have not?
They might have found/ bought additional tapes in recent years... but had that been the case, and tapes turned out to be in decent/ good quality, FTD would have released one/ some, dont you think so...?

that for real? It looks so bad, sorta 30 minutes computer job done
by a fan... Where did it turn up? were more than one copy found /

And the "alternate" behind some of the song titles... so boot style...
...Pep, or anybody else, have more info on this video tape "artwork" ?
For you lazy bast...s , who only read the last 1 or 2 posts... the artwork
is shown on this page above somewhere.
There are a lot of collectors who doesn'd want to sell there tapes for various reasons.

Hi Ger, yes the sleeve & the disc is legit...bought at my local "Future Shop" retail store on the original release date before they recieved the memo to pull them....
I was able to buy three of them, two of which I gave away to, two of my Elvis freinds....One in Holland & One in Eastern Canada...
I was lucky to get then as No other store I knew of on release day, as I phoned soon after I got my three had them in stock, as the memo had gotten to them before they were able to put any out....

What exactly was MGM's reasoning for pulling the bonus footage so late in the game?
Thu Oct 19, 2006 9:00 pm
Personally for me and for a lot of people outside looking
in MGM made a lot of stupid mistakes with this release
because it could have been so much more....than what it
was, I personally like how it was edited blows the orginal
away in my opinion.....

Pete, it is highly unlikely that BMG doesn't have ONE 1970 soundboard in their possession. Ernst has made it clear that most of the soundboards in the vaults are from 1974-1977 with a few from other years. He was non-committal about whether or not there was anything in the vaults from 1971, but ultimately it was confirmed BMG did in fact have some 1971 tapes when The Impossible Dream was released.
