BOX 5 CD + 2 BLU-RAY - ELVIS: '68 COMEBACK SPECIAL / 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Sebbene non sia ancora stato annunciato da Sony, sembra che il box da 5 CD, "Elvis: '68 Comeback Special - 50th Anniversary Edition", commemorativo del 50° anniversario, sia stato confermato. 
Quello che, però, fa un po' storcere il naso è che i 5 CD in questione comprendono i 4 CD già pubblicati nel 2008 per il 40° anniversario e la release pubblicata dall'etichetta FTD.

BOX 4 CD - "THE COMPLETE '68 COMEBACK SPECIAL - THE 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION"

La domanda, quindi, è: c'è bisogno di acquistare anche questa release, solamente perchè commemorativa del 50° anniversario?
Quello che potrebbe invogliare è il libretto di 88 pagine ed i due blu-ray, sebbene a livello di contenuti non ci sia nulla di inedito.
Riassumendo: il box per il 50° anniversario del '68 Comeback Special è composto da 5 CD + 2 Blu-ray e verrà pubblicato a Novembre 2018.
