Elvis Has Left The Building CD
Another highlight is a long excerpt from the 'Elvis What Happened' press-conference (much more than what is usually used in the various documentaries), where Sonny West discusses the controversial book. We have also included a very special 'bonustrack' an unreleased recording of Elvis backstage with several Japanese fans, recorded just minutes before the Midnight Show on August 9th, 1973. As private backstage recordings with Elvis are extremely rare, this is an amazing scoop. It's an interesting insight into the man to hear how he interacted with his fans he's very courteous and repeatedly thanks them for the gifts that they had brought along to Las Vegas for him. You even get an insight into the Colonel, as you can hear him shouting in the background repeatedly! A fascinating piece of 'Presleyana'. All recordings were digitally remastered with great care by Otto Meszaros, whose work on the Czech releases has been praised by many fans.
'Elvis Has Left The Building' is packaged very tastefully, with rare pics of Elvis, newspaper clippings from around the world reporting his death, photos from the funeral, and even the original White House statement about Elvis' death. This breathtaking deluxe digipack has to be seen to be believed, as it's a good example of superior Scandinavian artwork (designer Kenneth Dokkeberg). The theme behind this release is of course a sad one, but on the other hand it also shows how much Elvis was loved and respected all over the globe - a remarkable tribute to the greatest entertainer of the twentieth century. 'Elvis Has Left The Building' is an essential and historic release that is a must for the collection of every Elvis fan.
