Mahalo From Elvis was a compilation album by RCA/ Camden released posthumously in 1978. It consists five (then) previously unissued tracks Elvis recorded in Honolulu on January 14, 1973 for inclusion in the U.S. version of the live concert TV special 'Aloha from Hawaii' (these tracks are not considered 'live' recordings, as no audience was present). The recording of No More, was not used in the special. All other songs were previously issued recordings originating from the Presley movie soundtracks 'It Happended At The Worlds' Fair', 'Harum Scarum' and 'Double Trouble'. Camden re-released the album with a differend cover and album title in 1979 ('The King...') The original album was certified Gold by the R.I.A.A. on 9/15/2011.

The original album was released in 1991 in Canada by RCA Special Products but both the sound quality and the quality of the cover print were poor. Now this album is presented on CD in top quality sound in a stunning 6 panel digipack with superb original artwork / sound quality, using the new masters for the original tracklist!

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.
