Synopsis by Mark Deming
Elvis Presley was a man who knew how to rise to a challenge, and, in 1973, his manager, Col. Tom Parker, came up with one of the biggest stunts of their career -- staging a live concert in Hawaii that would be beamed by satellite for TV broadcast in 40 countries to a global audience of 1.5 billion people. Elvis responded with a typically dynamic show, and this home video release features the king of rock & roll singing some of his biggest hits and personal favorites, including "C.C. Rider," "Burning Love," "Suspicious Minds," "Welcome to My World," "Steamroller Blues," and "American Trilogy." Due to licensing problems with music publishers, the most recent edition of the Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii home video is missing three songs from the original broadcast ("Johnny B. Goode," "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," and "I Can't Stop Loving You"), though an outtake from the original performance, "No More," has been added as a bonus.
