'Live 1969' showcases this incredibly, important phase in Elvis's career in definitive detail - his first live shows following his triumphant, 1968 comeback for NBC after an 8-year absence from playing live. This box set features 11 complete sets from the first of his many engagements at The International Hotel allowing fans a more definitive picture of The King's glorious return to the concert stage. The accompanying 52-page book includes rare photos, memorabilia and an oral history by Ken Sharp curated from historic interviews with Elvis, Colonel Tom Park, Tom Jones and more.
After years of increasingly worse movies and diminishing record sales, he had just managed to turn his career around with his 1968 TV special. This show demonstrates all the charm and charisma of Elvis and his great, new band, combining repertoire of mainly blues-tinged rock 'n' roll, with a few beautiful ballads and his two, new, hit singles, 'In the Ghetto' and 'Suspicious Minds'. Recorded at the 2,000-seater showroom of the International, the intimate setting also gave Elvis the opportunity to talk to his audience, cracking jokes and telling a 10-minute story of his career, giving a rare insight to an otherwise very private man.
