Nothing less than perfect
21 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

It was year 1973 when Kui Lee Cancer Foundation had change to get very big donation from the King of Music, Elvis Presley. Presley, NBC and Marty Passetta produced this most expensive TV special ever in that time with 2.5 million dollar budget. NBC sold it to more than 40 countries which could air it via satellite, and they made a fortune to Kui Lee foundation.

This is rehearsal concert for "the" TV special, Elvis: Aloha from Hawaii. This includes same songs, but Elvis makes it different way. They tested electronic and lights with this concert, and in same time they got footage to use if something would go wrong in live special (but nothing did).

Elvis' performance in this is perfect, but not that perfect than his performance in the main concert is.

10/10
