ROLLING STONE debuts track from upcoming ELVIS: THAT’S THE WAY IT IS CD sets

10-disc ELVIS: THAT’S THE WAY IT IS – DELUXE EDITION (2014)

10-disc ELVIS: THAT’S THE WAY IT IS – DELUXE EDITION (2014)

Rolling Stone this week premiered a beautiful version of “I Just Can’t Help Believin'” from Elvis Presley’s August 12, 1970, Dinner Show at the International Hotel in Las Vegas. The song is among the previously unreleased tracks on the upcoming 10-disc Elvis: That’s The Way It Is – Deluxe Edition and the 2-disc Elvis: That’s The Way It Is – Legacy Edition. Sony is releasing both sets on August 5.

Take a listen here and enjoy. Gives me chills, I must admit – especially Elvis singing softly with the Sweet Inspirations near the end. When I think I’ve heard just about all there is to enjoy about Elvis, here comes something a little bit different.

Both sets focus on the summer of 1970. The “Deluxe Edition” contains eight CDs and two DVDs. The CDs include the original album, singles, studio outtakes, rehearsals/jams, and all six concerts recorded for MGM’s Elvis: That’s The Way It Is documentary. The DVDs feature the original 1970 theatrical version of the film and the 2001 “Special Edition.”

The “Legacy Edition” contains Disc 1 and Disc 5 from the larger set, meaning the original album, singles, studio outtakes, and the August 12 Dinner Show. Since the 2-CD set comes in at about 10% of the price of the 10-disc set, I commend Sony for making that option available for fans who are unable or unwilling to splurge on the box.

Just one week later, on August 12, Warner Brothers is releasing a newly-restored version of the documentary on Blu-ray. A limited-engagement theatrical run will follow, beginning on August 16 in Memphis and expanding to much of the US the following day. For Elvis fans, 2014 will no doubt be remembered as the year of That’s The Way It Is.
