Art of the Cover - Elvis Presley's "That's The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition 8CD/2DVD) Box set" (2014)







The Monumental Definitive Edition of Elvis: That's The Way It Is (Deluxe Edition), the King's 1970 Album and Concert Documentary, Presented Together for the First Time Ever in a Deluxe Box Set (8CD/2DVD)

Although purists believe Elvis's peaked artistically at Sun Studios, all agree that in his early 70s Vegas years he was a magnificent performer who created fantastic music. This set captures that period perfectly. In the age of binge watching television shows, this is a perfect opportunity for binge listening/watching that wonderful period of Elvis's career.


This 8 CD / 2 DVD deluxe edition of Elvis: That's The Way It Is features the six complete shows recorded and partially filmed by MGM. All the concerts have been either mixed or remixed and digitally remastered to provide the ultimate audio experience. 

The original RCA album is expanded with the four single sides from the period, and a selection of "fly-on-the-wall" outtakes from the June Nashville sessions that produced the majority of tracks for the album. 

Completing the audio section, a separate disc of insightful rehearsal highlights showcases both the hard work and the playful atmosphere that governed Elvis' relationship with his musicians. It also includes a 80-page, 4 color book that features rare photos, memorabilia, recording data and insightful liner notes.

Finally, two DVDs featuring the original theatrical version (1970) and subsequent re-edited extended version (2000) completes the ultimate overview of this truly memorable event in the career of Elvis Presley.
