At the time, Howe insisted on the possibility of a soundtrack for the album, with the idea of collecting royalties from it as the producer. The production was further complicated when Goldenberg complained to Binder about Strange not turning in any musical arrangements for the special with only two weeks before the end of pre-production. Binder talked to Strange, who left the special alleging he was too busy with other projects. A week before the end of rehearsals, the production team allowed Howe to return as producer and engineer.
Presley started to work with choreographer Lance LeGault on the planned numbers, and Belew started to work with the costumes. Binder and Howe developed the concept of the informal section of the show after seeing Presley interacting with his entourage while playing music during breaks. Parker opposed this concept. Binder settled for a sit-down concert, set in a small stage that resembled a boxing ring.
The scripted part was cancelled, but the writers gave Presley a list of topics to discuss between songs. The topics included mentions of his early career, his Hollywood years and the current music business. Howe arranged for rhythm section, session musicians from Los Angeles.
Part of the string and brass sections of the NBC orchestra were also enlisted. It was to be blended with live vocals during the production numbers, which were taped on June On the same day, Presley taped the first sit-down show. Colonel Parker had told the NBC team he would take care of the ticket distribution.
He assured them he would fly fans from different parts of the country to fill the studio. By the day of the show, however, Parker had not distributed the tickets, and only a few people were in line to see the taping.
Binder and Finkel invited people from a restaurant across the street and put an announcement on a local radio station to round up an audience for the taping. Presley was nervous at the beginning of the first hour-long set. Binder had to convince him to take the stage, but once there, Presley was comfortable. He performed his songs and traded jokes with his companions as the session progressed. To get it ready for the next show, he had to hand wash it. He was helped by the rest of the costume crew who used hairdryers to hasten the process.
During the first show, the producers were concerned about the effects of the toe tapping on the recordings. On June 29, Presley recorded both stand-up sessions. As with the first two shows, the cameras that shot Presley from different angles did not have individual taping machines.
The director chose the camera angle he desired, and the cameras fed either of the two available taping machines. He instructed Goldenberg and lyricist Walter Earl Brown to write a song that reflected Presley and his beliefs. After hearing it three times, Presley was convinced to record it. Goldenberg removed his name from the publishing sheet, and told Parker that Brown wrote the song. A large sign in red letters that read ELVIS was placed on the black background, while Presley performed the song with a hand-held microphone.
After finishing the song, Presley closed the special by saying "Thank you, Good night. Presley was satisfied with the result.
Elvis aired on December 3, , at 9: Eastern Time. It observed that on this special, he was "rather conservative" compared to his new peers. The review by the Newspaper Enterprise Association published in the El Paso Herald-Post felt that the special showcased a renewed and "more mature" Presley. The reviewer lamented the editing of the program, and the selection of the "cage-like stage" in which Presley appeared to pace — "not at ease".
After the taping of the first sit-down session, Presley called Parker to his dressing room, and told him he wanted to return to touring. During a press conference, Parker announced that Presley would soon embark on a "Comeback Tour". Presley was also interested in further collaboration with Binder, but Parker avoided it.
By January , propelled by the success of the special, and his renewed enthusiasm, Presley started his return to recording non-soundtrack albums with producer Chips Moman. The band was accompanied by the backing vocals of The Sweet inspirations and The Imperials.
NBC rebroadcast the special in the summer of It included a bordello scene, which was originally approved by the censors, but removed by the Singer Corporation to avoid controversy. In , HBO broadcast the first sit-down session of the show under the title Elvis: One Night With You. A home video version was later released. In , Elvis: The three disc set contained all the known available footage of the special, outtakes included. A single-disc edition was released in with the program expanded to 94 minutes, by adding material from the outtakes to the original broadcast.
It reached number twelve on the Billboard Singles chart, while it sold eight hundred thousand copies. Bootleg albums featuring non-issued material began circulating as early as The Making of Elvis the Comeback Special , which consisted of outtakes and rehearsal recordings from the special. The version of " A Little Less Conversation " originally recorded for but not used in the special was later remixed and became a hit single in It also spent four consecutive weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart.
The sit-down sections of the special were a forerunner of MTV Unplugged , showing for the first time an artist in a casual setting. The same logo is also used on the cover of his same-titled album.
