Flaming Phoenix Productions will release soon their first CD simply titled Opening Night 1971. This album features the opening show of Elvis' fourth appearance in Las Vegas as recorded from the soundboard on January 26, 1971. For the first time ever all the recordings from this show are assembled together on one CD, including some previously unreleased performances such as 'Johnny B. Goode' and 'The Wonder Of You'.

This set will be presented in a digipack.

The 1971 recordings from the mixing desk are scarce and less documented than any other year between 1969 and 1977. Here's your chance to acquire one of those rare moments with The King!

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.
