From the label; The DVD; STAR DVD label will re-release ‘ELVIS COMING HOME’, which features a mixture with Elvis' songs and videos highlighting the fascinating late-sixties period. Since the first pressing sold out very fast, lots of fans of the label missed out on it, here is your chance to obtain this great release, which now features 5 bonus tracks, the rarest is the 68 medley: During the show NBC used one hand-held camera(ISO cam) to fill in the gaps made during the live control room switch, although the quality is less then we are used to you will get a live experience like never before!

Tracklist; Guitar Man, Big Boss Man, 68 Medley: Heartbreak Hotel/Hound Dog/All Shook Up (ISO Cam), Edge of Reality, Going Home, Just Call Me Lonesome, Wonderful World, Fools Fall in Love, You Don’t Know Me, Clean Up Your Own Backyard, Rubberneckin’, A Little Less Conversation, Tomorrow is A Long Time, Singing Tree, I’m Movin’ On, Hi-Heel Sneakers, Come What May, All I Needed Was the Rain, Charro!, Almost in Love, Let Us Pray, U.S. Male, Too Much Monkey Business, The New Road Medley: Nothingville/Big Boss Man/It Hurts Me/A Little Less Conversation/Let Yourself Go/Power of My Love,  Stay Away, Change of Habit, Almost.

The CD; In 1984 a new digital master ("Fast Version") of Ain't That Loving You Baby was made by RCA. They used 17 splices to create this track and issued with a new matrix number (PPA5 2672), that was used on the album 'Reconsider Baby'. In March of 2007, Sony decided to go through all of Elvis' masters. They retransferred everything and remastered all tracks including repairing as many clicks, pops, bad edits and dropouts as they could, but for this track the work seemed too much, so they included “take 11” of the song, where of course the sensational “fast version” should have been used! Now STAR is proud to present the “remastered” version for the first time!! Hard work went into this project, but as always STAR delivers! The sound is so much better then on the “Reconsider Baby” album, and the splices are done in the same way! Presented on a nice “MINI CD” (playable on all players) which also features the 1987 “remastered” Bossa Nova Baby (previously released on Rare Elvis 4) which also is very hard to find in this quality, as well as 2 bonus tracks.

Tracklist; AIN’T THAT LOVING YOU BABY – REMASTERED fast version, ASK ME – TAKE 9, BOSSA NOVA BABY – REMASTERED extended version, WITCHCRAFT – TAKE 2
