"Elvis Is Dead"
A collection of news reports from local and major TV stations on the passing of Elvis Presley, recorded in August 1977
      
      
 Release notes:  This comprises of a 400 page jam packed book with 6 CD’S and 6 DVD’s (PAL ONLY) with hours of unreleased footage and new complete soundboards all housed in a large and heavy beautiful box set. The book is packed with more than a thousand pictures mostly never before seen with reviews, full text featuring all the tours and rare facts etc and, a layout that made what most people thought impossible to do, a 1977 book finally look worthy of a release. Printed on beautiful silk paper this hard back edition is a must for any fan.
In essence, the CD‘s feature mainly on the earlier tours where as the DVD’s are on the later of 1977.
The 6 CD collection includes 3 new shows featuring the lost recorded performance of Orlando on February 15th, Saginaw’s May 3rd and Madison’s June 24th.
Also included on the CD’s are highlighted show recordings from 1977 and has a new version of Elvis’ last show in Indianapolis, which has had an updated transfer from the original dual audience reel tape and re-mastered to exceptional sound quality than ever before. This box could not be complete without having the last show, the final curtain, being in the final sound quality. All of the audio materials contained in the box are taken from 1st generation copies of original Soundboard/RCA tapes.
The Orlando show was recorded in binaural with the band and orchestra on the right channel and the piano on the left. Elvis’ voice is inaudible on this recording and was considered by many, a lost recording. The most sophisticated re-mastering technique was used to bring Elvis’ voice to the foreground; otherwise, this show would have been lost forever!
With Madison from June 24th, this is the only complete Elvis show from 1977 to exist on soundboard and to this day, is the last known soundboard recording concert of Elvis Presley to be released.
The material for this show was taken from an original master tape. Although the tape suffered some minor damage, we are very pleased with the results.
Also for the first time we have Jerome ‘Stump’ Munroe on drums instead of Ronnie Tutt.
On the many other recordings on the CD collection, fans will be pleased to know that all tracks previously released have been updated and, they will notice the difference. Some of the more recent single song releases from Abilene and Chicago have all now been corrected and there is even another bonus ‘My Way’ unreleased track from Chicago included.
The 6 DVD (ONLY IN PAL) collection is an absolute must have, this includes 8mm footage with more than 2 hours of unreleased footage with the best sound possible on all footage. The 8mm DVD’s are dual layered for maximum length with maximum quality and all have multi angle viewing. Included in this section is 36 minutes of unreleased footage from Indianapolis alone. Means you really can see Elvis, close!
The DVD set also includes the CBS TV Special and is a very special treat for fans. For the first time ever, using a 1st Generation digital copy of a TV Station tape,
(originally used to broadcast ‘The Special’ in October 1977) it has been re-mastered frame by frame and now finally, released to fans after 33 years to watch this in all its glory!
We also have the most up to date release of the last 2 professionally filmed Elvis shows taped for the CBS TV Special in 1977. These were the shows that were recorded in Omaha and Rapid City.
These come from a tape source four generations better than previously used before. Not only have these 2 shows been painstakingly restored and re-mastered frame by frame, but for the first time, it will include new unreleased footage from Rapid City, making this show practically complete. In fact all that is missing is just a few of the introductions. The new footage found from Omaha now makes this show 100% complete!

Info: One step too much:

EPE Takes Legal Action Against Global Bootleg Ring

Elvis Presley Enterprises took swift action to stop the commercial sale and distribution of a DVD/CD set which included recordings and audiovisual footage of Elvis Presley concert performances. Working with a team of investigators across three continents, EPE was able to track down the individuals they believe to be behind the release and distribution of the box set.

As of today, EPE has begun action in the Chancery Division of the High Court, England and Wales, against Joseph Prizada, the alleged source of the infringing materials in the box set. On an order from the High Court, on January 25, 2011, EPE lawyers and computer experts were authorized to search Mr. Prizada's home for evidence of the sale and distribution of the box set. The evidence uncovered led to the filing of a lawsuit against Mr. Prizada for copyright infringement.

On February 2, 2011, EPE also filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court, Northern District of Florida, against Bud Glass, an Elvis Presley memorabilia collector, for the alleged illegal sale and distribution of the box set in the United States.

EPE is currently reviewing the evidence and considering filing additional lawsuits against other individuals responsible for the manufacture, sale, and release of this particular box set as well as other bootleg recordings and merchandise.
