This new Definitive box set chronicles the pivotal NBC-TV special that helped Elvis reclaim the title of The King Of Rock & Roll

The Original Special included spirited "sit-down" performances with Elvis and original band members Scotty Moore and DJ Fontana plus then-new material,
including the classic show ending performance, "If I Can Dream".

This new 5CD/2Blu-Ray box set will offer every previously released audio / visual material from the TV special including rare outtakes.

Plus a deluxe book filled with rare photos and a newly-compiled oral history of the making of the historic music  program.
