Elvis : Rhythm & Blues is an excellent double CD compilation with not only a much wanted theme but a well thought out selection of alternate takes, undubbed masters and importantly masters where appropriate, for example the master for 'Memphis Tennessee' was used as we strongly felt that the alternate takes did not match the brilliance and power of the master and did not offer the unique characteristics that many of the chosen alternate takes on this set do. Like the Elvis Is Back! : The Alternate Album we focused not just on alternate takes for the sake of them but rather we carefully selected good performances first and foremost and importantly a selection that 'felt' like they belonged together, an album, songs that were consistent with the preceding track, for a very listenable experience. While we looked for and found so many interesting tracks with variations of Elvis talking, laughing etc which is where so much fun is found, it was never at the expense of quality, as in quality sound, and a good performance, nor ever allowed to get repetitive. We went by 'feel' and as it turned out only one track needed replacing with another take as it did not feel right.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
