Elvis Presley Bootleg's
'... the midnight show at the Las Vegas Hilton on August 12, 1970. Probably the best live concert ever recorded by Elvis Presley'. This release offers, for the first time ever, the complete one and a half hour reel of the August 12, 1970 Midnight Show in Las Vegas, in the original, beautiful stereo mix recorded back in 1970.
This show is directly transferred from the complete one and half hour stereo reels.
All tracks are 24bit restored and remastered for high-fidelity.
Also included is a gorgeous 24-page booklet in full colour with in-depth liner notes and rare photos. And there is also an amazing bonus gift: an exact copy of Elvis’ personal tortoise shell guitar pick, as may be seen during the TTWII rehearsals, on display in Graceland, or in the book 'Elvis by the Presleys'.
You will get one of two kinds in this limited-edition set: heavy, for the electric guitar, or medium, for acoustic guitar. Just like Elvis used! This will for sure become a collectable all on its own! It belongs to the rehearsals of That's the way it is and has the feel of 'The return of the Prodigy ' best of both worlds!

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.
