He has contributed liner notes to reissues from a diverse array of artists, among them Nat "King" Cole, Paul Williams, Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield, B. I'd love it if it were like the 1970 TTWII set but would love it even more if it was more like the 1969 set. The set also features an illuminating essay by rock historian/musician Warren Zanes, founding member of The Del Fuegos and Professor at New York University.

It’s a minor miracle that the Blu-ray of the film is included at all, though given the success of the ELVIS biopic, I think it’s more likely than ever that WB could choose to revisit ELVIS ON TOUR (again). The article determined that Presley "comes through magnificently", while Adidge and Abel were praised for their use of split screens and speed techniques that were "used with taste".The Elvis On Tour box set has been produced by Ernest Mikael Jorgensen and includes new liner notes by Presley's longtime friend Jerry Schilling as well as an essay from Warren Zanes of The Del Fuegos. The concept of the film was changed to show Presley as he toured arenas throughout the United States. Richmond – Elvis rocks straight in with a fabulous and funky 'Proud Mary' before the nicely adlibbed “Only made it to Virginia” in 'Never Been To Spain'.

Elvis´voice seemed stronger, more focused and controlled and he attacked the songs at a totally different and powerful manner than what was the case in Greensboro and San Antonio. The shows are bookended by the now-famous "Also Sprach Zarathustra" introduction and the final announcement that "Elvis has left the building" (plus a few words reminding audience members to pick up souvenirs on the way out). It was fun listening to the concerts on CD and then remebering which tracks were actually shown in the movie.

Unlike many of Elvis' Vegas performances, there isn't a lot of banter with the audience at these shows, and from time to time he entertains himself by refusing to take a song too seriously - even at the expense of the song. I've been waiting for this stuff to come out since I was a kid, and fell in love with the original Elvis on Tour film. Through Presley's friend, Jerry Schilling, the directors convinced the singer to use footage of his early career that included his appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. The booklet features an interesting article by Warren Zanes ‘Elvis’ Road To Freedom’ that helps to explain where Elvis’ legacy sat in 1972 in respect to the on-going ‘Rock’n’Roll fifties’ revival as well as RCA’s handling of Elvis’ legacy.
