It is the outtakes that make this release, they are fun, more so than normal with Elvis in high spirits, clearly at a high point in his personal life and he brings this to the studio. Arguable he never looked better either, as the photo in the booklet, as used for the front cover of the 1980 'Guitar Man' release reminds us. As Troy points out some have been used before, such is the quality of these outtakes, but even if you have heard some of this, here you hear Elvis in the correct context instead of the previously re-arranged edits. Somewhat like Troy I have always found this movie of non-interest - but unlike Troy I have never been able to enjoy it, in fact I have never watched it in full !! The only movie I san say this about. The soundtrack has always to me included some 'pretty' songs, but light weight. But the out-takes for me are where I find great enjoyment, they have to be the most fun of and and also provide much 'new' songs in the form of high spirited fun performances.
