A strong mix of his hits and fills the show with his latest recordings and topping it of with par excellence covers of very popular recent top ten charts hits like You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, Sweet Caroline, You've Lost That Loving Feeling, Polk Salad, Something, Snowbird. Even the closing of the show had a drastic change.

Making the performances of January / February 1971 by far the most energizing starts of a Vegas Season.

The extra's are a part of the Snowbird studio session with the unreleased undubbed Master take 6 & a rare take of the vocal harmony overdub by Elvis.

As extra bonus we included a seven-minute telephone conversation, privately taped in March/April 1971.

Elvis talks about recording sessions and performing in Las Vegas, his scary International Hotel earthquake experience. (The California/Nevada area had a big earthquake in February 1971).

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
