Elvis: That's the Way It Is

 (1970)

Elvis: That's the Way It Is Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Elvis Presley performs before a sold-out audience at the International Hotel Showroom in Las Vegas. This 1970 documentary (reissued in a revised form in 2001) includes extensive rehearsal footage as well as the concert.

For more about Elvis: That's the Way It Is and the Elvis: That's the Way It Is Blu-ray release, see Elvis: That's the Way It Is Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Elvis: That's the Way It Is Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Venerable cinematographer Lucian Ballard (The Wild Bunch and the original True Grit) supervised the filming of Elvis: That's the Way It Is, which was shot in anamorphic widescreen. The image on Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is generally impressive, although some of the source-based issues probably cannot be overcome without major, labor-intensive efforts at digital workstations, especially where the "reconstructed" version uses footage that suffers from obvious fading. The good news is that none of the footage is marred by damage in the form of scratches, hairs, dirt or dust (or, if it was, the damage has been repaired). Detail is generally very good, especially when one considers the lenses and film stocks of the era in relation to the unscripted subject matter of a documentary. The rehearsal footage has less contrast, and blacks aren't as deep, compared to the concert footage with its bright lights and more intense colors, but the flatter look suits the informality of the mood in the rehearsal room.

A fine grain pattern is visible throughout. To the extent that electronic manipulation was applied, it probably already occurred at the reconstruction phase. The Blu-ray image itself does not betray evidence of filtering or artificial sharpening. Warner continues to use the lowest possible bitrate, here 20.95 Mbps, which should be unnecessary in an era when BD-50s are relatively inexpensive to manufacture, but I could not see any obvious detriment to the Blu-ray image.


Elvis: That's the Way It Is Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Elvis: That's the Way It Is was originally released in four-track stereo, but the "reconstructed" version received a full-blown 5.1 remix based on the original sixteen-track masters. That mix is provided on Blu-ray in lossless DTS-HD MA, and it sounds amazing. In the "Patch It Up" documentary, it's noted that the musicians in Elvis' band heard sonic details in the remix that they had never been able to make out before, and I have no doubt that the same level of detail is present on the Blu-ray. The sense of presence is constant, whether in the informal space of the studio or in the recesses of the International Hotel Showroom. James Burton's lead guitar solos are just as vivid as Elvis' vocals. The latter, of course, switches effortlessly from soulful country-western to raucous rock 'n' roll, with every variation in between. (If you've never heard Elvis' cover of "Bridge over Troubled Waters", you should; it'll change your perception of the song.) The 5.1 remix remains faithful to the original stereo arrangement by staying largely in front, using the surrounds to create a sense of depth but nothing more. It's an excellent concert reproduction.
