The Ed Sullivan Show - Watch Elvis' Introduction To The World In This Special DVD From The Ed Sullivan Show !

The Ed Sullivan Show (originally called "The Toast of the Town" for the first seven seasons, before the name change for the rest of its 23 years on the air) is a legendary program in the annals of television history. One of the landmark events during the course of the show was the introduction of Elvis Presley, the future King of Rock And Roll. The Encyclopedia of Television, published by the Museum of Broadcast Communications, talks about that event:

...Sullivan's deal with Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, created national headlines. The sexual energy of Presley's first appearance on 9 September 1956 jolted the staid, Eisenhower conformism of Sullivan's audience. By his third and final appearance, Elvis was shot only from the waist up, but Sullivan learned how to capture a new audience for his show...

Image Entertainment will bring you all three of those performances on the November 21st release of The Ed Sullivan Show - Elvis Presley. This will cost $29.99 SRP, and besides all 3 episodes featuring Elvis Presley, there will be a number of Elvis extras as well!

* A rare home movie capturing a very early Elvis performance, shot on August 7, 1955, at Magnolia Gardens near Houston, Texas
* Elvis and Ed remembered
* Elvis is on his way! Ed Sullivan Show clips
* Special Elvis moments including an appearance by comedian John Byner
* Home movies of Elvis and Priscilla, Elvis and his friends cutting up on a film set and some of the first shots of daughter Lisa Marie

Share the excitement of Elvis Presley's earthshattering introduction to the nation in these three unforgettable episodes from The Ed Sullivan Show, now on DVD for the first time ever, and experience for yourself why Elvis became the legendary King of Rock and Roll! Appearing on the show Sept. 9, 1956, Elvis sent shock waves through a repressed nation with his soulful singing, wild hip gyrations and raw energy, attracting a record-breaking TV audience of more than 60 million people. Presley returned on Oct. 28, 1956, continuing to provoke ecstatic screams with hits such as "Don't Be Cruel," "Love Me Tender" and "Hound Dog." In fact, these exhilarating performances were so explosive that Elvis was filmed above the waist during his final Sullivan show appearance on January 6, 1957

 長らく噂されていた エルヴィスの 「エド・サリヴァン・ショー」 完全版DVDが 米国 Image Entertainment より 11月21日に 発売されることになりました。 エルヴィス、 3度の出演場面の 完全版の他に ホーム・ムービーなどの 特典映像もつくようです。

'68 Comeback and Aloha From Hawaii Single-Disc DVDs - Content & Cover Art

In August 2006, Elvis Presley Enterprises and Sony BMG will release the single-disc DVDs Elvis: '68 Comeback - Special Edition DVD and Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii - Special Edition DVD. These are follow-ups to the smash hit releases of deluxe edition box sets of '68 and Aloha material in 2004.

The single-disc releases are geared toward reaching the casual and potential new Elvis fans who could be interested in this material but are not ready to commit to the pricier box sets. The single-disc editions also make it possible to get the Elvis '68 and Aloha material into retail outlets that don't carry DVDs above a certain price point. These single-discs will reach a broader market than the box sets have and should make a nice contribution to the growth of Elvis fandom worldwide.

Hopefully, some special content on the single-discs will be pleasing to the serious Elvis fans who already have the box sets and anticipate something new with them in mind on the single-disc releases.

Here are the cover art and content information (a bit more detailed than in the DVD packaging) for these new releases:

ELVIS: '68 COMEBACK - Special Edition DVD

In the 1950's, singer Elvis Presley led the rock 'n' roll revolution in music and pop culture. In the 1960's he concentrated mainly on his successful movie career. By 1968, it had been more than seven years since he had appeared on stage in front of a live audience. In his first television special, clad in his now-iconic black leather suit, Elvis performed classic hits both on stage alone and, in sequences generally regarded as the forerunner of today's popular "unplugged" jam sessions, with friends and original bandmates. The program also included splashy production numbers. Usually referred to as the '68 Comeback Special, the actual name of the program was Elvis. Taped in June 1968 in Burbank, it first aired that December 3rd on NBC - the network's biggest ratings victory that year and the season's top-rated show. It stands today as one of the great moments in rock music history and as a stunningly brilliant milestone in Elvis Presley's career. After this triumph Elvis poured renewed creative vigor into his recording work, wrapped up his movie contract obligations and returned full-time to the concert stage, beginning a new and exciting era of the Elvis phenomenon.

Elvis ('68 Comeback Special) (76:12)

A new 2006 edit of Elvis not seen on any DVD release to date, expanded with content not included in the original broadcast. The edits/expansion involve the "black leather" footage. All production numbers appear in their original form for television but for the tweaks/expansions made for 1980s home video releases.

The original videotape material for this program has been digitally remastered and restored. The audio, originally recorded in mono, has been digitally remastered and re-channeled for Dolby Digital stereo and 5.1 surround. Presented in its 4:3 (1.33:1) aspect ratio.

NOTE: The two solo mini-concerts and the two jam sessions from which the "black leather" performances were derived are found in their entirety on Elvis: '68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD (7-hour, 4-disc set), along with an adapted version of the original broadcast special, the raw elements and unused takes from the production numbers, and a special white suit/black leather suit presentation of Elvis's performance of If I Can Dream.

Having Fun With Elvis In Burbank (09:25)

Elvis had a tremendous sense of humor and during the production of the 1968 TV special there were many funny moments. In 2004, as part of the promotion surrounding the release of Elvis: '68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD, there were special screenings of selected material from the deluxe set in Regal Theatres in a number of cities in the United States. In the Regal Theatres program we included a specially assembled 6-minute/16-second collection of funny moments, which audiences greatly enjoyed. This was put together after all content for the deluxe set had been finalized and discs had been manufactured, so it was not part of the deluxe set. For the single-disc release Elvis: '68 Comeback Special Edition we decided fans would enjoy having this "funny reel" as bonus material, so we went back into the studio to refine and expand it into a 9-minute/25-second feature we know you will love.

Photo Gallery

Photographs of Elvis from the rehearsals and production of the 1968 TV special and the birthday party for Elvis's manager Colonel Tom Parker at the studio.

Easter Egg (08:33)

An "Easter egg" is hidden content on a DVD. It's not listed on or in any of the DVD packaging or shown obviously on the onscreen DVD menu. You have to find it. It's a popular way of delivering to "in the know" fans special content that the general public might not appreciate fully. If you find the Easter egg, you will get this message onscreen:

Congratulations! You have found the "Easter egg."

Three takes from the Guitar Man production number featuring the dancers' karate segment and Elvis's final portion of the song It Hurts Me were inadvertently left off of Disc 3 of the 2004 release Elvis: '68 Comeback Special - Deluxe Edition DVD. The one tape containing these three takes had not made it into the inventory of raw tapes when the digital transfers used for the deluxe DVD set were made and were found later. We provide these takes here. Enjoy.


Elvis Presley made television and entertainment history with his Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii concert, performed at the Honolulu International Center Arena on January 14, 1973. Beamed live via Globecam Satellite to various countries and on a delayed basis to approximately thirty European countries, it first aired in America that April 4th on NBC in edited form, including four "insert" songs shot just after concert. In all, the concert was seen in about forty countries by 1-to-1.5 billion people that year, a global ratings smash. Never before had one performer held the world's attention in such a way. Aloha from Hawaii presents Elvis Presley at the pinnacle of his superstardom, giving one of the most outstanding concert performances of his career.

DVD Promo Spots

This edit is shorter than the one for this concert on Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD because the opening theme Also Sprach Zarathustra heard while the screen is black awaiting the footage of Elvis's stage entrance to begin is not included and the footage of the cast on stage after Elvis has left and the closing vamp continues to play is not included. Other than that this edit is the same as found in the deluxe set but for a correctional tweak to Elvis's introduction of J.D. Sumner & The Stamps and The Sweet Inspirations.

The original videotape material for this program has been digitally re-mastered and restored. The original multi-track audio has been digitally re-mastered and remixed for Dolby Digital stereo and 5.1 surround. Presented in its 4:3 (1.33:1) aspect ratio.

Post-Concert "Insert" Songs for TV Special (14:30)

The master takes of the "insert" songs for the American broadcast - the four songs that were used and the one that wasn't.

Blue Hawaii

NOTE: This concert also is found on Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD (4-hour, 2-disc set), which includes the American broadcast version, all takes of the "insert" songs, the entire dress rehearsal concert and the complete raw footage of the "arrival in Hawaii" sequence shot for the original TV special intro.

Easter Egg (09:14)

An "Easter egg" is hidden content on a DVD. It's not listed on or in any of the DVD packaging or shown obviously on the onscreen DVD menu. You have to find it. It's a popular way of delivering to "in the know" fans special content that the general public might not appreciate fully. If you find the Easter egg, you will get this message onscreen:

Congratulations! You found the "Easter egg."

Elvis appeared in two press conferences leading up to his Aloha from Hawaii concert TV special. To date, copies of the press conferences in their entirety have eluded us. Here, we provide the portions we have been able to locate so far.

September 4, 1972 - Las Vegas Hilton

November 20, 1972 - Hawaiian Village Hotel

An "arrival in Hawaii" sequence was shot for the Aloha from Hawaii TV special. The complete, pristine raw footage shot by the program's production team is included in the 2-disc set Elvis, Aloha from Hawaii - Deluxe Edition DVD. Here we present some TV news footage that was shot, offering an alternate view of the arrival event.

 8月に発売される「68 カムバック・スペシャル」、 「アロハ・フロム・ハワイ」の シングル・ディスク、 スペシャル・エディションDVDの 詳細が発表されました。

 「68 カムバック・スペシャル」は、 80年代に発売されたビデオ版と同じ ロング・バージョンで、 ギターマン・プロダクション・ナンバーも It Hurts Me の入った完全版となってます。 そして、 スタンダップ・ショー・シークエンスの Love Me Tender の後に Baby What You Want Me To Do が 新たに付け加えられました。

 また、 Easter Egg と称した 隠し映像部分には、 最近発見された ギターマン・プロダクション・ナンバーから 3テイクス、 ダンサーのカラテ部分2テイクスと エルヴィスの It Hurts Me のラスト・テイクが 入るようです。

 「アロハ・フロム・ハワイ」は、 当然 衛星中継版なのですが、 2001年オープニング部分が カットされたのは 何とも残念です。 また、 前回のDVD発売では エルヴィスのメンバー紹介で、 スタンプスと インスピレーションズの部分が 誤まって リハーサルの映像が入っていたのが 修正されました。
 ボーナス・マテリアルは インサート・ソングスと フォト・ギャラリー。
 Easter Egg と称した隠し映像部分には、 ラスベガスとハワイの 記者会見の一部分、 ヘリコプター・アライバルの 別角度の映像が入るようです。

Elvis: The 25th Anniversary Concert - DVD Release, August 2006

In August 2006, Coming Home Music (Gaither Management) is scheduled to release a DVD of content from Elvis: The 25th Anniversary Concert. This show took place in front of a sell-out crowd at The Pyramid arena in Memphis, Tennessee on August 16, 2002 in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s passing. It starred Elvis Presley (via video) joined by a large gathering of his former bandmates live on stage - Joe Guercio, the TCB Band, the Sweet Inspirations, The Imperials, The Stamps, The Jordanaires, Voice, Millie Kirkham and more.

Coming Home Music, the company that, in collaboration with EPE, produced and distributes the excellent documentary He Touched Me - The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley, was offered the opportunity to produce and distribute a DVD of the 25th Anniversary Concert. The DVD will focus on Act 2 of the concert, which was much like the road show Elvis-The Concert (now known as Elvis Presley In Concert), plus material from the gospel segment from Act 1. Exact content details will be shared soon, once the editing is finalized.

The DVD will be available on ShopElvis.com, in Graceland visitor center stores and through typical DVD distribution outlets, and it will be available as part of the merchandise offering on tours of Elvis Presley In Concert. Also, repeating part of their successful marketing plan for He Touched Me, Coming Home Music is working with PBS (Public Broadcasting System) stations around the country to air the 25th Anniversary Concert. Some of the stations could choose to air it during their "pledge week" funding drives as they have with the gospel documentary. WKNO, the PBS affiliate in Memphis, has already confirmed plans to feature the concert for the first time during an August 2006 pledge week. Airings on other TV stations are slated for the months and years ahead. (The TV version will be a bit shorter on content than the DVD.)


Why just Act 2 and Gospel and not the entire show?
To maximize distribution of this DVD, Coming Home Music had to make sure it could get it into mass-market retail outlets that will not sell a DVD that goes past the $14.98 price point. Without getting into those major outlets, paying all the clearances for non-EPE footage used in our very long show and paying for clearances from all the singers, musicians, music publishers et al, plus production costs for a longer program, would have put a DVD of the complete show into a budget realm that would have made that $14.98 price point impossible.

Act 1 focused mostly on 50s/60s movie and TV footage for which isolated Elvis vocal tracks, essential for proper "Elvis-interactivity" with the live band, do not exist, unlike Act 2, which focused on 1970s concert material for which isolated Elvis vocal tracks are available. The 50s/60s segments of Act 1 were highly enjoyable for those present for the live concert event, but from a theatrical standpoint, the excitement doesn’t translate to DVD and TV viewing as beautifully as the 1970s concert material of Act 2 and the gospel segment from Act 1. Within the budgetary limitations on clearances and on the run time of the DVD, it was determined that focusing on Act 2 and the gospel segment would give the audience the best possible viewing experience if the complete concert event could not be on the disc.

Will the 25th Anniversary Concert air television outside the United States?
We don’t know yet.

On what date and in what formats will the DVD be available outside of North America?
We will let you know when Coming Home Music lets us know.

Will there be a DVD release of the 20th Anniversary Concert in Memphis called Elvis In Concert '97?
There are no plans for a release of the 1997 show. We did shoot an "archival" video of it, but the picture quality, and particulary the sound quality, turned out not be at a high enough level to warrant a release. The Elvis fan/collector market that would respond enthusiastically to this type of archival video is too small to cover all the costs of footage, performer and music publishing clearances, production/distribution costs, etc. But, the footage does exist for history and it has been very useful in putting together videos to explain our touring show to potential promoters and to incorporate into TV ads for some of our concert tours. (And, of course, many of you have found it out there on bootleg due in the form of sneaky audience recordings and in good form due to an apparent betrayal by someone who had access to the show taping we did.)

EPE is planning a live concert production of the magnitude of the 1997 and 2002 shows for August 16, 2007 ?
Elvis: The 30th Anniversary Concert. Will there be a DVD release from this show?

We hope so. This could depend in no small part on how well the Elvis: The 25th Anniversary Concert DVD sells. Coming Home Music or another distributor would have to have faith that they could recoup their investment and turn a profit. EPE does plan to shoot and record the event properly for history's sake, regardless of the status of a potential DVD release. Elvis: The 30th Anniversary Concert will take place on August 16th as part of Elvis Week 2007.

Will there be a DVD release from the tours of Elvis Presley In Concert (a.k.a. Elvis-The Concert)?
There are no plans for such a release, although some shooting/recording was done over the years. The 25th Anniversary Concert in 2002 is the most elaborate production of the Elvis-interactive concert concept to date and had a much larger cast of Elvis bandmates than we have on our road show. A DVD release of that show is the optimum choice for delivering the experience to you and the best bet for DVD sales. But, perhaps some of the road show footage could end up part of a project someday. We don't know. We'll see.

 「エルヴィス・ザ・コンサート」のDVDが Coming Home Music から 8月に 発売されると 発表されました。 これは エルヴィス没後25周年の 2002年8月に、 メンフィスのピラミッドで 行われた公演を 収録したものです。 しかし、 第1部の50〜60年代の部分は、 権利関係のクリアが難しいのと、 DVDの収録時間、 価格($14.98)の関係から 大幅にカットされる模様で、 第2部の70年代と ゴスペル部分が中心になるようです。 TV放送も8月にされるようですが、 TV放送版は更に短くなるようです。
