Especially for the Elvis Collectors We include numbered 100% genuine reproductions of the original tickets of both concerts. This is limited to 555 editions only!
Hear Elvis at the piano and many songs performed for the very last time on stage. With the last and arguably best-performed version of "How Great thou art" and the last versions of "Are you lonesome tonight", the powerful "Trying To Get To You" and the unusual "Hawaiian Wedding Song".
With this release it is obvious whatever may have been wrong, Elvis' unique voice never failed him!
In the spring of 1977 CBS-TV expressed an interest in creating a the program. After much pre-planning, producers Gary Smith and Dwight Hemion chose the cities of Omaha and Rapid City on the June tour for their primary videotaping locations. Elvis did not do so well in Omaha, but gave everything he had in Rapid City.
The Monday, October 3, 1977 broadcast, aired about six weeks after Elvis' unexpected death, used most of the second show in their edit.
The RCA soundtrack "ELVIS IN CONCERT" reached *Billboard* U.S. #3 shortly after this airing. The program would be rerun just once, on Sunday, May 7, 1978, and has never been issued on VHS or DVD.
