... The 1977 CBS TV Special in perfect quality, a very special treat for fans. For the first time ever, using a 1st Generation digital copy of a TV Station tape, (originally used to broadcast 'The Special' in October 1977) it has been re-mastered frame by frame and now finally, released to fans to watch this in all its glory!

Then there are two DVDs with the Omaha June 19 show from a new tape source with unreleased footage for the first time and the Rapid City June 21st concert from a new tape source with unreleased footage and near 100% complete for the first time. These are the last two professionally filmed Elvis shows taped for the CBS TV Special in 1977. While not as good in picture quality as the 'TV Special', these come from a tape source four generations better than previously used before. Not only have these two shows been painstakingly restored and re-mastered frame by frame, but for the first time, it include new unreleased footage from Rapid City, making this show practically complete. In fact all that is missing is just a few of the introductions. The new footage found from Omaha now makes this show 100% complete!

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.
