THE 68 COMEBACK RADIO SPECIAL takes your listeners beyond the original one-hour broadcast and inside the extensive archive of unedited live shows, backstage rehearsals long praised by fans and collectors. For his first concerts in seven years, the King turned in some of the most raw, captivating performances he ever set to tape. Music: Elvis classics live from the 68 Comeback Special archives, including the leather-suited unplugged sessions reunited with Scotty Moore and DJ Fontana; backstage rehearsal sessions; alternate studio takes of other music recorded for the TV special.
Interviews: Emmy-winning director Steve Binder, guitarist Scotty Moore, and audience members discuss these performances, what they meant to everyone at the time and why they are still revered today. We also hear from Elvis, himself, through comments recorded throughout the footage.
