Sold Out 13

February 17, 2022 | Video

The Pyramid import label released volume 13 in their 'Sold Out!' concert footage DVD series. 

Publicity stated: Over the past year we have released some amazing 8mm footage that has surprised many of you, much of it unknown to most fans. Now get ready for The Best!

One of the highlights on this new release is an almost-complete 1974 concert in fantastic quality. And the concert itself is a classic, with Elvis at his finest. Until now, this much sought-after film was sold only amongst high-end collectors for large amounts of money. The Omaha July 1, 1974 footage is a fresh high resolution transfer from the actual 8mm film and it looks absolutely stunning. You can even see the details in his suit. This 48-minute film is a true delight, and one of the best 8mm films in existence. Elvis is in a great mood, he’s joking with bandmembers and the audience, and he’s singing up a storm on songs like 'Trying To Get To You' and 'I Can’t Stop Loving You'. An absolute must-see!

There are 14 different 8mm films on 'Sold Out volume 13', covering the period 1970 - 1976, starting with Mobile 1970. Plenty of footage from 1971 - 1973 that really makes you feel like you are there. Especially the June ’72 films put you right in the audience… Lights out, sound way up and you are there! 

In Chicago, he was clearly mindful of where he was, because he added a lot of blues to his setlist. The ‘Get Back’ medley is cool, with a different guitar-solo by JB. Another cool detail is that several of these films show you the inside of the arenas where Elvis played, with especially the Omni being huge, with 18,000 fans waiting in anticipation for their hero.

‘A medley of costumes’. There’s also fascinating footage from 1975 and 1976, showing Elvis in various unusual outfits, including the two-piece that he favored in April 1975. And from the ill-fated Summer Festival 1975, the one-time-only ‘Penguin suit’. Story has it that Elvis was running a bit late that night, and opted to do his show in his regular street wear. Well, late or not, his performance that night was intimate and fun, and included various concert rarities.

This is a very disappointing dvd set. The first DVD is first of all, no better than the average 8mm material out there that no one wants because you cannot see anything. Elvis is 100 miles away.......So, what's the point??? The last chapter i think it is on the first DVD, finally shows Elvis in footage where you can actually see him up close. However, the worst injustice to the fans is still being done..... It has become a major problem with 8mm material..... And an insult the people who want to see more of Elvis. Anyone ever notice these days, when we do finally see some really good quality footage, a song is never completed. There's a constant jumping around to show bits and pieces of a song, but never the complete song. Also, this trick where someone blacks out the screen constantly every minute or so. You end up seeing more black screen than Elvis himself. These things are done on purpose using computer software and it is an insult to Elvis Fans. What is the point?

For many years some moan about that there isn´t much more 8 mm stuff out there, now these guys gave us 13 volumes until this day in one year. It is what it is, blame the guys back then in the 70s that there isn´t much more official filmed concert material from Elvis. And some payed thousands to get this material and now they are not happy that these guys release this material on import dvds. One of my Elvis buddies payed a lot of money and he moans on every volume they released until today.

Given the variety of quality on these releases, id suggest checking out a few of the you tube channels dedicated to 8mm and video concert footage, footage used to make up complete songs is pretty good on The Get Back & And I love you so DVDs
