    THIS HONESTLY HAD BEEN THE FIRST ELVIS PRESLEY CONCERT DOCUMENTARY I HAD EVER OWNED OR PLAYED MANY YEARS AGO, IN VHS TAPE FORMAT, ON MY NEWLY PURCHASED VHS PLAYER. I VIVIDLY RECALL MY EXCITEMENT AT THE FACT THAT I WAS ACTUALLY IN THE PROCESS OF ENJOYING THIS ELVIS VIDEO PLAYING ON MY COLOR TELEVISION. WHAT IS MOST RECALLED, AS COMPARED TO THE DVD/BLU-RAY VERSION I'M REVIEWING HERE, WAS THE BEGINNING HAD SHOWN A BRIEF COMBINATION OF ELVIS' KARATE MOVES, FROM EACH OF THE FEW CONCERTS FILMED FOR THIS DOCUMENTARY, IN FOUR COSTUMES#LIGHT-BLUE, DARK-BLUE, RED, & WHITE#, WHILE PLAYED TO AUDIO OF "JOHNNY B. GOODE" RECORDED AT A REHEARSAL PRECEEDING HIS SPRING 1972 CONCERT ENGAGEMENTS. THIS, CLEARLY#LIKELY FOR LEGAL REASONS# HAS BEEN ALTERED HERE FROM THE ORIGINAL RELEASE, AND REPLACED WITH REPITITIONS OF THE LIVE MEDLEY OF "TEDDY BEAR/DON'T BE CRUEL. THIS CHANGE IS OF NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE. HOWEVER, THERE'S DEFINITELY AN OUTSTANDING ELEMENT, WHICH CERTAINLY COULD'VE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER, AS HAS BEEN EFFECTED ON MORE RECENT REISSUED RELEASES OF TITLES SUCH AS "ALOHA FROM HAWAII", "'68 COMBACK SPECIAL", AND "THAT'S THE WAY IT IS". I REFER TO IMPROVEMENTS ON OTHER REISSUED VIDEOS OF ELVIS WHERE, UNLIKE ON THIS TITLE, SUPERIOR REMASTERED HD VIDEO & SURROUND-SOUND QUALITY AUDIO HAS BEEN PAINSTAKINGLY EFFECTED, AND THE EXCESSIVE TINY "BOX SHOTS" OF ELVIS, HIS BAND, THE AUDIENCE, AND SO FORTH HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH FULL SCREEN VIEWS TO IMPROVE THE OVERALL ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE. IN THIS COLLECTION OF LIVE ON TOUR PERFORMANCES, IT HAS BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED, THERE'S A DEBATE ON WHETHER THE FILM CREW, THE FILM DIRECTORS, ETC., OR ELVIS' GRUELING TOUR SCHEDULE IS AT FAULT FOR HIS SLIGHTLY DISCOLORED SKIN APPEARANCE. THAT WAS MOSTLY A PAST DEBATE, AND I'M CERTAIN MOST OF THESE ISSUES COULD'VE AND SHOULD'VE BEEN CONSIDERATELY ATTENDED TO AND CORRECTED BY THE TIME OF MODERN REISSUE. IN ANY CASE, THIS VIDEO DOCUMENTARY, AS OTHERS, OFFER PRECIOUS MATERIAL AND RETROSPECTIVES REGARDING ELVIS ON STAGE AND ELVIS BEHIND THE SCENES, AS HE IS "TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS" IN THE MANNER THAT ONLY AN ARTIST OF ELVIS' MAGNIFICENT CALIBER COULD. I AM MOST PLEASED SUCH FANTASTICALLY ENTERTAINING AND HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT MATERIAL IS STILL OFFERED FOR SALE. ELVIS NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN.

    Outstanding Performances by Elvis in On Tour

    Posted

    To all the Elvis fans out there, I don't have to tell you what On Tour is all about. Elvis is outstanding in voice and puts on fabulous shows. The DVD is nice to have FINALLY but it could be a lot better if they could have included the out-takes and extras that we all know about. No extras on this DVD and the chapter menu should be by song but is not. Color is slightly better than the original VHS but not to the standards of the REMASTERED "That's The Way It Is". Still a must have for any Elvis fan.

    Best Elvis DVD Out There

    This is a must own DVD. I highly Recommend everyone to watch this. The dvd is so inexpensive, and the Blue-Ray is worth the extra pennies. Besides you only have one life, and its only money. This DVD takes you behind the stage and gives you a close up on the Kings Life. Theaters were sold out everywhere when this was released, I would know they gave me the boot, and i had to wait for the DVD Release. Long Live The King- Jonzo D Great.

    Award winning documentary now presented on hi-def blu-ray. Digibook packaging looks great as well with full color pictures. The King has never looked or sounded better. Must own for music fans.

    This was great! Of course, I agree with all the people that have responded about changes. Why change the original? BUT, I often wonder why some albums go to "No Longer available" .
