Elvis' love for singing harmony has its roots in his love for gospel choirs. It is absolutely common and even necessary to be able to sing harmony when you do gospel songs, unless you are always on lead vocals. From the very early stages of his career the 'King' never really needed to do any harmony part. He had his beloved 'Jordanaires' with him who did a great job all of the time. Later on there were plenty of other background singers who always could do the job (and did it of course) absolutely fantastic! Maybe Elvis chose to do his own harmony in the recording studio on a couple of songs because he COULD do it (and very well for sure). Maybe he got the idea from his own 'home recordings' which we know quite a few of (as early as 1958)? One thing is clear: First you have to have the ability to do it. There have been many singers in show business who have NOT been able to do their own harmony because they simply did not know how to do it (you've got to have an 'ear' for that)! Elvis did a great job on all of the songs you hear on this brand new CD, there's no doubt. The one which is best known is certainly the legendary 1969 recording 'Suspicious Minds'. But there sure is much more to explore on 'Elvis Sings The Harmony' CD!

All tracks used for this project were taken from best possible sources available to date. Many of songs were individually restored and corrected and some are previously unreleased on CD. This unique release is presented in a de-luxe six-panel digipack with many unusual photos.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
