However, his opinion changed after he began talks with the special's producer, Bob Finkel, who persuaded Singer, NBC and Parker to alter the show's original concept. The performance includes the tracks 'All Shook Up', 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' and 'Can't Help Falling in Love With You'. However, the peak performance of both shows surfaces via an inspired, impromptu jam on Baby, What You Want Me to Do?

The topics included mentions of his early career, his Hollywood years and the current music business. Binder planned to shoot the segment in the locker room to give the public a sense of how Presley's music was developed in an intimate setting, but Parker opposed this concept. The sit-down sections of the special were a forerunner of MTV Unplugged, showing for the first time an artist in a casual setting. Despite encouragement from the director and Memphis Mafia entourage member Joe Esposito, Elvis remains a nervous wreck.Various recordings from the special were used as the soundtrack for the Elvis pinball machine, released by Stern in 2004. The arrangements of the songs for the stand-up shows were fast-paced, and Presley accompanied them with shakes, gyrations and facial expressions that he emphasized with fist gestures and knee-drops. but as this is regarded by many as Elvis at his peak, maybe the guy just didn't have any more to give. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. Originally conceived as a generic Christmas variety hour filled with fake snow, gift-hungry kids, and holiday standards until Presley took creative rein, the end result is a perfect blending of white hot performances and exciting production numbers that re-cast his classic hits in a modern, vibrant light.

To reduce costs, producer Hal Wallis shortened filming schedules, almost abandoning rehearsals and retakes. As with the first two shows, the cameras that shot Presley from different angles did not have individual taping machines.

The '68 Comeback Special should have been a new starting point in Elvis' career; it seems history will show it as the beginning of the end. Despite its monoaural source, just as much attention was devoted to the 'Deluxe Edition' audio with awe-inspiring results. All takes of the material shot for the original broadcast's two big production numbers and for the show's opening and closing segments.

There are also clips of him splitting his pants; looking like a complete dork as he miss-times a simple walk down a few steps, seeming a little geeky, and human - for me, this is where this Deluxe Edition really hits the mark. With these extras we get to see him sing this “message song” time and again, hitting the same gruff notes over and over, leaving us in no doubt - this Elvis was taking care of business. His initial Las Vegas booking, 57 shows in July–August 1969, attracted a total audience of 101,500, a Las Vegas attendance record. Three discs featuring all the material shot for Elvis Presley's 1968 television special, including the two complete jam session concerts and the two complete solo concerts, which have never been released in their entirety.

Yes, it is possible to see Elvis' eye shadow; his almost blue-rinse dyed hair; and yes, one can make out the make-up slapped on to his chiselled features. The new box set features five CDs and two blu-rays and collects all of the existing audio and video from the show, including including the original album, both ‘sit-down’ and ‘stand-up’ performances, rehearsals and sessions recorded with the Wrecking Crew in June 1968, including outtakes. In 1985, HBO broadcast the first sit-down session of the show under the title Elvis: One Night with You. The special's final running time was fifty minutes, edited from four hours of taping; Presley was satisfied with the result.
