Review : Elvis : The Lost Performances DVD
September 20, 2013
Great picture quality and stereo sound. Originally released on VHS in 1992, now on DVD.
Sandwiched in between these two 'sets' is rehearsal footage for the Vegas shows. Elvis plays guitar, (really!!!) and leads the central elements of his backing band, James Burton, Ronnie Tutt, Jerry Scheff and Charlie Hodge, through some early classics such as 'Don't'. Elvis just starts to play what he wants and its up to the rest of the band to pick it up and follow. Fascinating stuff. This DVD is an essential purchase for any Elvis fan.

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.
