Elvis Presley Bootleg CDs & DVDs
A lot of previous DVD releases have included footage from the different quality and the missing audio ... some time ago the producers acquired all the footage shot from the opening night, directly from the same source in a very good quality. All the different camera angles have been edited to create a real professional movie.
All the footage has been digitally restored in matter to achieve the best result of image quality. All the footage includes matching audio from the original concert in the way to get a perfect sync between audio and image with speed correction of the original footage. Although the show is not complete, the result believe us is very impressive, Elvis as you never seen ... THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!!
The producers are aware of the fact that the opening night show, as one of the best Elvis Presley concerts ever, has been previously released in different imports. But Here we give you the chance to listen -- and to WATCH -- the show in its entirety FOR THE FIRST TIME -- giving to this release the status of 'UNIQUE'. 'A Man At The Top' wants to give you a unique perspective of the man and his music during this August 1970. This will be the first STEP of a wider project, in fact the producers' intention is to accompany this first volume with other three volumes, in the way to cover all the soundboard recordings of August 1970.

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.
