Video: Steve Binder Talks about Elvis and The '68 Comeback Special

Steve Binder Following is an edited interview with Steve Binder producer and director of 'Elvis' and clips from the show. Usually referred to as The '68 Special or The '68 Comeback, the actual name of this landmark television special was Elvis. Taped in June 1968, it first aired the following December 3rd on NBC-TV. It stands as one of the great television moments in rock music history and a stunningly brilliant milestone in Elvis Presley's career.

Appearing on stage alone and in jam sessions reuniting him with early bandmates Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana, Elvis performs his classic rock and pop hits, introduces new material and reminisces about his career. There's a rousing gospel segment, a semi-autobiographical production number, and, as the finale, Elvis' passionate performance of If I Can Dream.
