Following 'A Greensboro Revolution!' (which is now sold out!) the next Madison label release will be Red-Hot In Richmond - Standing Room Only Tapes, Vol. 2. This fiery performance, captured in Richmond, Virginia by a battery of MGM documentary cameras on Monday, April 10, 1972, has been issued once before -- but this time it's far more complete, and in Great Sound Quality. For the very first time, hear the show mixed down from MGM's professionally recorded multi-track tapes into superb stereo!

Above, listen to a sound sample of Heartbreak Hotel.

Snippets of this evening made the final cut of MGM's 'Elvis On Tour', although with hindsight, it seems this was a major mistake. Ripping tracks like 'Proud Mary', 'It's Over', 'Hound Dog', 'For The Good Times' 'Polk Salad Annie' and 'An American Trilogy' were top shelf. And Elvis was in very, very good humour the entire night -- oh, yes, you're in for a real treat. We are told 'the sound is amazing'.

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.
