I thought this would just be a repeat of cds I already have but I have to say I think the sound quality on this release is superior to the cds I already owned previously and I did enjoy it a lot. With the other benefit being all of the taped shows together as one set.

I was really disappointed with this release. This is supposed to be Elvis' comeback. A great milestone for our beloved Elvis and the fans. What I loved is that here we get the songs in order of appearance on the show. But was extremely let down by the fact that the live version of If I Can Dream that is on the Memories 2 cd set is left out or not included on this release. And the intros and dialogue, and the part where Elvis strums the guitar and mocks "twang", have been edited out. And no improvement sound quality wise. This release deserves better treatment than that. It's too much for the casual buyer and not "complete" enough for fans that know better.
