'68 COMEBACK SPECIAL TEE VEE TREASURES
June 01,  2017   -    Elvis Express Radio
Here's a pretty cool 5 CD box set that takes you back to the superb days of the 12" LP size sets complete with an LP size photo book featuring 24 12" colour and black and white
images taken from the press conference, rehearsals and live performances.

With approximately 5 hours of classic, rare and unreleased recordings from the legendary 1968 NBC TV SPECIAL. Many of these recordings are available on CD for the very first
time.

This collection will take the listener on a musical journey through the development of Elvis' historic 1968 NBC Singer TV Special 'ELVIS', which marked the end of the movie years
and the starting point of Elvis' re-birth as a musical legend.

"ELVIS: '68 Comeback Special - Tee Vee Treasures" takes you back to 1968!
