A few days ago, we reported news about the release of an 8 disc set focusing on Elvis' critically acclaimed performances from the rehearsals from July & August 1970. Now less than
a week later, we can bring you news of yet another 8 disc set focusing on the same rehearsals.
'That’s The Way It Is – Studio and Stage Rehearsals' is another import box-set. Unlike the previous 8 disc box, this release has a label name, 'The New International', which does
have a neat looking box, but as yet the rest of the design is still to be seen.
Do you buy this release or the previous release? Well that's the big question, but until we start to see some independent reviews, or of course the people behind the issues want to
send us a copy each for us to decide, we just do not know what one will be the winner. But the other thing we should point out is that this particular release is nothing to do with the
previous 'Internationale' label who released the amazing 'Thats The Way It Is - The Complete Works' back in 2009.
From 'The New International' Press release ...
