Just awesome....is all i can say about this. Very pricey...and some of the pictures could have been put together much better ( some very small....some duplicated and some annoyingly put spread across pages ).
It does contain some fabulous shots and the CD is great (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

One of my favorite from the FTD series. Th booklet is nie but as Chris said quite a mess. But the tracks on the cd is worth every dime imo.
Elvis at his very best pure and sinple. (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

With Elvis in very good mood and Quality.
Not off mike like the Boot Version (IMG:http://elvis-tkc.com/forum2/style_emoticons/default/king.gif)

This is the best of the three, I think, but like the other FTD releases, extrememly over priced, I have the cdr's of these releases, unless they lower the price, I stick with those! I've have seen the books though, the sound is great on the cd's and I always love those alternate takes, I'm also parital to TTWII, Al

The Way It Was is a fine FTD release, but I just don't like the way they made the book... they could have done a better job with it. Like Chris said, some of the pictures are very small (screen captures) and some of them are put spread across pages... I think there's even a couple of photos twice and a few reversed ones....

But the CD definitely makes up for those "mistakes". Elvis rockin' on the rehearsals and live on stage. It's DYNAMITE!

ghost riders in the sky is a doctored version; the off-mike version is stripped and the vocal is recorded over the off mike version to improve the sound.

Always felt the CD could have been much better...maybe a full show!?.

Pictures in the book were very small and not many new ones to these ole eyes!.

Although I really would have loved another complete show at the time, I thinkn the cd is good as it is, representing the time period chronologically. We hear Elvis rehearsing (and progressing along the way) and then live on stage.

BTW, I love that version of Blue Suede Shoes .. that one really rocks !
