Elvis ’68 Comeback Special-3 Disc Deluxe Edition
Suggested Retail Price: $49.95.

-Available for the first time, the original Elvis television special as it first aired on NBC on December 3, 1968, but with one change: the restoration of the bordello segment that was deleted from the show’s main production number at the request of Singer (Sewing Machines), the broadcast’s primary sponsor. (This restoration was also made in the previous home video and DVD releases of the show, but those releases varied from the original broadcast version in other ways as well.)

And all the material shot from which the components of the TV special were assembled:

- Available in their absolute entirety for the first time (including "Are You Lonesome Tonight" deleted from past home video and DVD releases due to rights issues), both of the black leather sit-down shows – Elvis, clad in black leather, performing jam sessions with original band-mates Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana along with close friends Alan Fortas, Charlie Hodge and Lance LeGault.

- Available in their absolute entirety for the first time, both of the black leather stand-up shows – Elvis, clad in black leather, performing solo on stage.

- Available for the first time, all the material shot for the Trouble/Guitar Man opening of the special – used and unused takes – everything in its complete, raw form.

- Available for the first time, all the material shot for the gospel production number – used and unused takes – everything in its complete, raw form.

- Available for the first time, all the material shot for the big Guitar Man production number – used and unused takes – everything in its complete, raw form.

- Available for the first time, all three takes and the false start shot for the If I Can Dream show closer – all in complete, raw form. (The final take was the one chosen for the television special.)

- Available for the first time, the shots of Elvis from the closing credits roll of the television special – but without the credits roll.

- Available for the first time, the complete taping session for Elvis’s on-camera “huh-huh-huh” promotional tag for the television special.

- The exciting new If I Can Dream music video created for this DVD set and its promotion. It is assembled from the traditional white-suit If I Can Dream show closer and Elvis’s never-before-released performances of the song at the end of his two black leather stand-up shows.

The original videotape material for this program has been digitally remastered and restored. The audio, originally recorded in mono, has been digitally remastered and rechanneled for Dolby Digital stereo and 5.1 surround.
