Two new 'bootleg' CD re-issues have been released; 'I Can Help : 30 Anniversary' and 'The Alternate Love Letters'. Both albums are produced in digi-packs with 'The Alternate Love Letters' in a six panel digi-pack.

This year it's 30 years ago that the compilation album 'I Can Help And Other Great Hits' was released in the UK. It was one of the most succesful Elvis albums of the early 1980's. It was even released on picture disc and on single (both I Can Help and Green Green Grass Of Home housed in a poster bag) Strangely enough it was never released on CD. We are proud to present the entire album on CD for the first time, including some very hard to find bonus selections including the unreleased 12 inch version of I Can Help. Housed in a stunning 3 panel digipack (with unseen photo's of Elvis from the mid 1970's ) this is a real 'must have' for all Elvis CD and photo collectors.

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.
