Getting back to the subject of this dvd; is the Houston press conference the full 8 and a half minutes or has this too been butchered by Tunzi?

... Going by the response, only Daz ( you poor devil) ordered a copy of this scam dvd. I hope all others are warned now to keep away from it .
Or will you buy it, Tony, for 3 bloody minutes of "new" material? No, I dont think you will... will you?! Anybody else who ordered a copy, and has something nasty to say about it? I just love the idea, Tunzi in a shitty mood, doing the rounds in Memphis... Yes, he reads our comments here, everyday. And yes, Im an arrogant little bastard. But a honest one.

I Have learnt my lesson now thou watching it again :roll:
i wonder what mr tunzi means by " I am closer than anyone to unearthing the pied piper of cleveland footage" Is this a marketing coy to maybe buy vol 4 and /or a new dvd with a 1 sec clip or still from this footage :lol:

Also as a bonus we see more people receiving elvis charity cheques than before :lol: :lol: on vol 3 of this dvd.

i have now cracked the protection on this dvd so anyone want a free coffee matt?

He will never answer anything tough.


I get the impression *Diamond Joe* is kinda like Charles Durning's Oscar nominated Texas Governor in "The Best Little Whore House In Texas".

Watch the clip, listen to the song.. you get the pictue.

Well, i got the first Hotshots and was happy.

I was gonna get the 2nd one but after reading the reviews on here i never did.

I was gonna get this 3rd one but (again) after reading the reviews on here i (again) never did.

Sorry Joe , after the reviews of the 2nd DVD thought you had a chance to redeem yourself with this 3rd edition but your greed has damaged your reputation big time.

REVIEWS

Wed Aug 15, 2007 12:16 am

But nobody HAS reviewed it as such yet! Nobody could even answer the question as to wether the Houston press conference runs for the full 8 and a half minutes as per the audio. All I got was another sarcastic answer from a new member hiding behind a psuedonym name!

I will be surprised if anyone buys this edition after these reviews.

Only person i can think of would be Trigger from Only Fools and Horses. :lol:

HOUSTON

But if it DOES contain the full Houston press conference, that has never been seen in it's entirety, so that is worth having.

So you'd buy this DVD for this "Press Conference" alone? It HAS been doing the rounds in collectors circles for years! And being part of the Elvis fan club I'm sure you would have seen it in complete form - otherwise someone has been keeping something from you!

Come on Tony - on another thread you're telling us you wouldn't buy the best selling Elvis album in years!

Get a grip!

I have not bought the third volume, simply because I don't like the first two releases. Unfortunately I spend money to buy the first "Hot Shots And Cool Clips" dvd and I thought I got a little too less for my money. I have seen the second volume with a friend and I was happy that I did not pay money for the dvd. Its nice to watch but not too much new stuff and certainly a too high price for the things offered. For ten bucks the "Hot Shots And Cool Clips" releases would be ok, but not for the price Tunzi is asking.

Hey, isn't Tunzi Lichters twin, separated at birth?

Funny enough, when I got that Sinatra Show DVD from him years ago, I was really shocked at the quality. It was - to my eyes - not really better then what I already had on video at that time.
But... he promoted it like it was a perfect picture quality, spurring high hopes among the fans and collectors.

So I decided to write to him and inform him what I felt about his work and especially his not so correct promoting of the DVD. When he wrote back he only called me names! Well then, isn't this the way, people who really don't have much to offer, react, when somebody tells them they are not really worth a damn?

And to Tallhair: "You are so right".
Thanks God the world got Dutch people who care(d) about the legacy of Elvis Presley. You certainly are one of them!

Wed Aug 15, 2007 11:06 am

After buying vol 1 (ok) and vol 2 (rip-off) I will not buy Tunzi stuff again.

... Much nicer avatar, Burger King.
Don't be surprised to see this thread removed in a couple o days. If I dont shut up, King Administrator will take action, and theres a reasonable chance I will be blocked from this site for the 2nd time.... The Toonz can screw anybody, anytime. And no matter what, he will always have the blessings from a certain somebody on this site. They always win. This thread will be labeled "Personal trashing", or whatever nonsens... Let me say it one more time : My attacks are targeted at the lies told by Tunzi in his advertisements for his dvds. Especially his "Holy Grail" crap on the Jailhouse Rock screentest.
Lemme add, there was a time, long, long ago, when he seriously tried to publish decent photobooks. And yes, long, long ago, he actually did research for some of his projects, such as his editions of Recording Sessions... But in the last couple o years its been strictly: grab the money and run! Maybe time, Toonz, to do some serious thinking on how to save some of your once owned credibility. But why worry? You have friends in the right places on this site. And they need you.

I sincerely hope this sort of practise by the forum admins will not be implemented. It's fair game to warm others of a misleading product.

To TALLHAIR

Thanks for your nice words.
Eerrr... please allow me this question: Why don't you again do some QUALITY work for all of us fans and collectors. You are the man! Your stuff is always HIGHCLASS. No matter what.

But maybe the times are changing. As you said. Some people with the blessings of the right persons in the right places allow themselves anything and get away with it. Sad, so sad.

YOU were the one who claimed your local dealer had the DVD, so ASK THEM.

As far as I can see, only one member of this mb has the DVD. If your original information was incorrect (which I guess it was) then why not direct your question at daz cav.

And "TONY", please.
Do you really want to start addressing the issue of psuedonym's?

Well do ya "68'boy"?

it totals 8 mins 57 secs

Wed Aug 15, 2007 1:49 pm

Hey Guys and gals.. the running time for the houston press conference on the tunzi vol 3 dvd is 8 mins 57 seconds!!
