After the film the intermission and then the promised Unreleased material, and this time it really was.
Fabulous footage of Elvis rehearsal wearing the light blue two-piece with the black criss crosses on the front, cuffs turned up and matching pants.
You see him in the elevator and then we saw 6 rehearsal songs in the studio with the full band in there with him. Absolutely Magnificent.
The Orpheum had security guards in the aisle of the theatre so there was no way in hell you could even take a photo let alone video. (see pictures right).
The following songs were played from the studio rehearsal, Cattle Call, For The Good Times, See See Rider, Bridge Over Troubled Water and A Big Hunk O' Love
It was the very raw material as in straight ex camera-tape footage and parts with heavily distorted vocals (we've seen some on bootlegs, the audio is not good). So it would need major editing to look good on a professional DVD. However seeing NEW Elvis footage on the BIG SCREEN - how exciting is that! - Just Fricking awesome!
No one asked and we were not informed but with all this great unreleased footage we all know about, is it going to be released in 2012 with more EOT stuff for the 35th anniversary!! - who knows?
