Elvis Presley needs no introduction, born Elvis Aaron Presley he is also known simply as Elvis, an American singer, musician and actor. He is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century and is justifiably referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "the King". His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, led him to both great success and initial controversy.

This limited edition deluxe 3CD plus book contains rehearsal highlights from one of the most memorable periods in Elvis’ career - his captivating performances at The International Hotel Las Vegas in the summer of 1970. These truly historical recordings, re-mastered and restored harness the raw and early development of songs that were performed weeks later in Las Vegas. The accompanying booklet includes rare photographs taken at some of these rehearsal sessions - a must for any true Elvis Collector!


With his rise from poverty to significant fame, Presley's success seemed to epitomize the American Dream. He is the best-selling solo music artist of all time, and was commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country, R&B, adult contemporary, and gospel. He won three Grammy Awards, received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame.
