Elvis One proudly presents two separate releases in the 'Bootleg Series', 'Elvis Work In Progress' Volumes 1 & 2.

Elvis Work In Progress - Volume 1 CD

'Elvis Work In Progress - Volume 1' represents the first album from the Elvis One label with outtakes from 1960 & 1966 together on one great new CD. An album with 29 alternate takes, including 23 alternate takes previously unreleased by Elvis’ official record company. All-in the best possible sound. This is a fly-on-the-wall experience… Of course this album comes with a nice CD-booklet with photos and recording information.

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.
