Episode #23 - Thursday, June 20, 2014
In this special edition of the Graceland podcast, Elvis Presley Enterprises' Kevin Kern and Elvis Radio's Big Jim sit down for an exclusive interview with Senior Vice-President of Warner Bros. Marketing George Feltenstein to talk about the upcoming release of "Elvis: That's The Way It Is" Deluxe Edition. Feltenstein describes the remastering of this set as a long labor of love which finally brings this incredible Elvis footage in the best video quality to date. The result of a historic partnership between Sony Music and Warner Brothers Home Video, the deluxe set combines the video and audio assets of "Elvis: That’s The Way It Is" with unique and previously unreleased material. The highly-collectible box set marks the first time the 1970 documentary and album have been available in a single package, with bonuses including unreleased material, remixed and remastered audio and a new 80-page book detailing the entire event with facts, songwriter and musician interviews, and photos in a deluxe 8CD/2DVD box set. The new deluxe edition combination set is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com and will be released on August 5, 2014. In addition, Elvis fans can see the world premiere of "Elvis: That's The Way It Is - Special Screening" on August 16 at the historic Memphis Orpheum Theatre.
