    Hello Paul,
    This is the same set as the one that has been issued in 2001. I have it. The design of the cd’s is the same as the 2001 issue. My copy is also a hardcover book format. The only difference could be in the remastering.

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Ah yes, thanks. This is probably just a repackage at a new price point, possibly remastered (will check).

  2. LedMan says:

    I preordered this set and Jacques since you have the original issue can you please comment on the overall sound quality? Paul thanks for checking if this reissue is a updated remaster.

    • Jacques says:

      Hello LedMan,
      For me the sound is excellent. These cd’s have been produced by Ernst Mikael Jorgensen and Roger Simon. These two men are behind the “Follow that Dream” label. This label is exclusively dedicated to the Elvis Presley catalog. They have, to this day, remastered all the Elvis catalogue.

      If you look on ElvisNews.com, it is said that Sony will re-issue the 2001-set Live in Las Vegas. So it won’t probably be remaster. But because of the two men behind this set, the sound should still be excellent.

  3. fitzysbuna says:

    great! I have been waiting patiently for a re release as I missed it first time and it is at a good price!

  4. thegreatelephant says:

    noticed a herbie hancock one in a similar vein to this release

  5. David Neal says:

    I was only charged £10.83. A little over 13 shipped to the U.S

  6. sound is great. super box set.

  7. LedMan says:

    Hello Jacques,

    Thanks for your reply and I’m looking forward to adding this set to my collection. I’ve been tempted to order some of the Fan Club releases including vinyl however have been concerned about mostly sound quality. I’ve been very tempted to order the blue vinyl reissue of “Moody Blue” and will research if this LP is sourced from analog masters or digital sources. I know many Elvis fans aren’t that interested in Elvis during this period however hearing this album when I was 8 and it was first released left a positive impression. I saw Elvis perform at The Mosque

  8. LedMan says:

    in Richmond, VA in 74 or 75 and vaguely remember the performance.

  9. Mylene says:

    Disc 4 is sub bootleg quality and disc 3 is the ‘best’ of RCA/BMG/Sony’s previous Vegas Elvis material. Disc 2 is a brilliant 70s concert (which is probably on the That’s The Way It Is box) and disc 1 an okay 69 concert. Still worth buying.
