Spliced takes: 'Still in Memphis' Fans know what to expect with this series, some highlights are mentioned here, but in fact, the whole cd is one big highlight! This one won't leave your player before Christmas! (promise!)

'Way Down' - Starts of with the band fooling around, Elvis joins the fun and it runs straight into the song!

'Wearin'That Loved On Look' - Over six (!!) splices make a very different version, with extra verses and piano solo.

'I'm Movin'On' - This splice includes ALL verses done by Elvis and runs longer than other versions. Same goes for 'Hey Jude', which also sounds very fresh.

'She Thinks I Still Care' - One of THE highlights probably, Here Elvis starts off with the slower version, James takes over and off they go into the faster version, this works very good, and maybe should have been released like this!

'Good Time Charlie's Lost His Mind' - The title was renamed for fun, and that's what we are getting here, a nice complete take with lots of fooling around.

'Suspicious Minds' - What's a 'Memphis' release without this classic, because some rare parts are used, this one again sound very different to previous releases outtakes.

'Do You Know Who I Am' - Just listen to the 'harmony' ending, very nice to hear two different sounding Elvis voices.

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.
