'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

‘Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite: Legacy Edition'

Elvis Presley (RCA Legacy)

★★★★

It's been 40 years since Elvis Presley's much-ballyhooed live concert special “Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite” was viewed by an estimated 1.5 billion people around the globe and the folks at RCA Legacy are marking the anniversary with a two-disc “Legacy Edition” of the album. Elvis performed two shows in Honolulu and they are available in one package for the first time here.

The original performance is the focus of Disc 1, as the King shakes, rattles and rolls his way through 24 songs in a little more than an hour. In addition to solid renditions of his own hit songs (“Burning Love,” “My Way,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Hound Dog,” “Suspicious Minds”), Presley offers up covers of the Beatles (“Something”), James Taylor (“Steamroller Blues”), Hank Williams (“I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry”) and Peggy Lee (“Fever”). Disc 2 features the performance known as “The Alternate Aloha” and includes 27 tracks. While it contains many of the same songs, save for “Johnny B. Goode” and “I Can't Stop Loving You,” there are bonus cuts that include “Blue Hawaii,” “Ku-U-I-Po,” “No More,” “Hawaiian Wedding Song” and “Early Morning Rain.” This was smack dab in the era of the sequined suits and Presley's expanding waistline, but you can't argue with the man's ability to put on a show.
