Get Down And Dirty : disc 1
Get Down And Dirty : disc 1
The Get Down And Dirty rehearsal CD release is mind blowing. Gravelroad nailed it. The balance and sound is just great. Very well balanced sound, not from various sources and in stereo. Even the mike trouble is solved, and that was a technical problem of the enigneer in 1970! The missing 24 minuts are in place and finally I can play it without skipping the parts which were too painfull to my ears. They give us more complete recordings in better sound, a re-releases but they make it worth to replace the old one. Gravelroad is Premium Quality. The three panel box carries the 2 CDs that are printed like a tape reel, and are called Reel 1 and Reel 2. Behind the CDs there are two great close-up shots of our man during the rehearsal.  

Get Down And Dirty: Rehearsal, 15 July, 1970 Culver City, LA

This deluxe, double CD pack with booklet is the third Gravelroad Music (GRM) release spotlighting Elvis Presley's wild rehearsals in the summer of 1970, filmed for the MGM documentary 'Elvis: That’s The Way It Is'.

Fort Baxter and Gravel Road will again join forces for this re-issue.

Get Down And Dirty will feature no less than 24 minutes extra from this July 15, 1970 studio rehearsal which was not made available before by Fort Baxter. The double CD will have a playing time of just under 100 minutes. The character of the rehearsal is different from the two previous acclaimed releases, 'The Brightest Star On Sunset Boulevard' (CD) & 'Plugged In And Geared Up' by GRM.

Its the second day of the rehearsal shooting, Elvis is studying songs, malfunctioning microphones, uncensored talking & singing. That's one of the reasons to rename this historical rehearsal 'Get down and dirty'.

Includes more than 25 minutes unreleased material! We advise you to, 'Get with it', it’s worth it!

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.
