Don't think you already heard these! ALL tracks are brand new edits and sound very rare, The title track, for example, starts off with an alternate opening and includes the extra verses.
'Gold in the Mountains' has been extended and includes rare alternate musical segments. For 'Tender Feeling' they used the alternate take 1 (vocal) and combined it with an alternate musical track, the result is stunning and sound quality is much better than the master version! 'Echoes of Love' includes an alternate Saxophone solo makes you feel as if it is a brand new take! The 'drums' on 'Catchin' On Fast' are taken from an alternate musical track and put in just at the right spot to make it sound pretty cool and different!
Another highlight must be 'Kissin Cousins #1' ... for this song Elvis recorded TWO different vocal styles... one being Josh, and one being Jody (Hillbilly) both tracks were combined and we got the first 'duet' ever of Elvis and... Elvis ... Here they have 'reversed' the vocals, and a complete NEW release is born, where the master has Josh... this track has Jody singing, gives the same 'feel' but sounds VERY different! 'Smokey Mountain Boy' and 'Barefoot Ballad' have alternate extended intro and outros ... We could go on, but one thing is for sure, this is another CMT winner!
Did we say ALL tracks are spliced, so you get an ALL new album!

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.
