'Bumps Are Gone But He's Still King!' (E. P. Collector label, catalogue number EPC 2018-19). The Hartford, July 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased in complete audience recorded form. Audionics label released parts of this show taken from soundboard source (CD 'Across The Country', 2005). Unfortunately, complete soundboard recording of this concert do not exist. The E. P. Collector label had complete audience tape of very good sound quality in vaults for many, many years and finally decided to release it. July 28th, 1976 is longest and perhaps the best show from this particular tour. Among the concert highlights there are fantastic performances of 'Jailhouse Rock', 'America', 'Polk Salad Annie' and 'Hurt'. There is one special moment too, when Elvis sing 'Happy Birthday', to Kitty Kahane, daughter of Elvis friend, comedian Jackie Kahane.

This show was restored with a great care with a focus on not changing the integrity of the original monaural recording. You may ask your supplier for samples. If you are fan of good audience recordings, we bet that you will like the sound!

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with concert review and collection of images taken during Hartford concert on July 28, 1976.

If you have enjoyed our previous 1976 releases like 'The First Time Ever I Lay With You' and 'Looked Into The Wings”, then you are sure to enjoy our latest release, too.

We would like to thank you for your continuing support. We are planning some surprises for 2019, including totally new shows, so stay tuned!

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

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. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

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.
