By 1968, it had been more than seven years since Elvis had appeared on stage in front of a live audience. In his first television special Elvis plays his greatest role - simply being himself, the real Elvis as performer and person. Usually referred to as The ' 68 Special or The ' 68 Comeback Special, the actual name of this landmark television program was Elvis. Taped in June 1968, it first aired the following December 3rd on NBC-TV, attracting 42% of the television viewing audience, the network's biggest ratings victory that year and the season's top-rated show. It stands as one of the great moments in rock music history and as a stunningly brilliant milestone in Elvis Presley's career. After this triumph Elvis poured renewed creative vigor into his recording work, wrapped up his movie contract obligations and returned full-time to the concert stage, beginning a new and exciting era of the Elvis phenomenon.
