    Amazon have just reduced theirs from 19.99 to 18.99. Amazingly I had already ordered and received it and they still refunded me the difference.

    :) The track is listed in the booklet as part of that set, but it's missing from both the region 1 DVDs I've got - one was purchased over the web, the other brought back from the US by my brother - the Elvis estate know that they've made an error and are looking into doing something about it!

    See the link to my review, and JAMESTALKALOT's comments here

    If anybody has a copy that has the song "re-inserted", or learns anything that BMG/the Elvis Estate will be doing about this, I'd appreciate a heads up ;)

    Cheers,

    Sigs

    (shrug) didnt know that, but not overly bothered by not having 'the closing frames where he has his foot on their back' ...

    Considering this was 'made for TV' and shot 36 odd years ago I'm gobsmacked that as much material survived and in as good of condition as this transfer shows ...

    It's the whole song that's missing!

    Re: picture quality - I thought it was OK... for an Elvis flick! Vertical lines rob the image of any semblance of quality, though :)

    I would imagine there are vast quantities of Elvis footage that will gradually be released at the appropriate moments ;)

    yeah picture quality is far from immaculate but much better than I expected I must admit ... guess the confusion stems from reading the link above, as it led me to think that number IS in the set, albeit not entirely complete and elsewhere on the "other disc" ...

    "The raw elements of the production number are elsewhere on the DVD set, including the bordello scenes and "It Hurts Me". Takes of the very final portion of "It Hurts Me" (Elvis finishes the song and has his foot on pile of guys he beat up) did not, however, make it into the raw elements on the DVD set."

    It Hurts me is included... on one of the two "extras" discs, but without the "foot on the baddies" bit - which has not been included at all. It seems the Elvis estate simply made a fopar and missed out the It Hurts Me track completely from the Guitar Man sequence, and the song listing is therefore simply wrong and misleading!

    ah ... so your point of contention is with the tracklisting moreso than the lack of a few seconds of footage being "instream" on that particular disc, gotcha

    Well, to be pedantic... the purpose for me posting here was to find out if anybody had received a corrected DVD, or if anybody knew anything new about the issue ;)
