On June 1, 1977, it was announced that Elvis had signed with CBS-TV for an anniversary special. Elvis' final concert tour began on June 17, in Missouri and filming would commence two days later at the Civic Auditorium in Omaha.

On June 26, Elvis would perform his last concert in Indianapolis. In excess of 18.000 fans watched this historic performance. In just over seven weeks, on August 16, Elvis Presley would pass away at his beloved home, Graceland. While millions mourned throughout the world, an estimated crowd of 100.000 gathered in Memphis for his funeral.

The CBS-TV special was screened posthumously on October 3, and many fans experienced mixed emotions. However, Elvis loved performing, and found the courage to face the cameras and the critics in order to please his fans. The soundtrack album charted on October 29, reached #5, and was certified platinum. The front cover featured the famous "falcon" suit from June 1975. The inside gatefold and back had live shots from June 1974 and April 1972 respectively.

"My Way" was released as a single in November and reaches #22. Later that year, Elvis was voted the "Number One Box Office Draw" for arenas seating 6,000 to 20,000.

Fifteen years on, the musical legacy left by Elvis continues to achieve excellent sales throughout the world. The recently released "Elvis-The King Of Rock And Roll" retrospective has already achieved platinum status. (from the liner notes)
