'Doin' The Best I Can' 2CD set from Straight Arrow label

To be released soon on the Straight Arrow label is the 2CD set 'Doin' The Best I Can', featuring two shows recorded on February 16. Most Elvis experts agree that the 'post Aloha' winter engagement was his weakest up to that point. Perhaps his inner turmoils played a role, but a rather severe throat infection most definitely did. It was so serious that midnight shows on Feb. 13, 14 and 15 ended up getting cancelled and dinner shows were performed against doctors advice. At some of the shows it was clear that the infection seriously hampered his ability to sing.

Elvis' jets to be auctioned

Well it seems it is on for real, a Beverly Hills auction house began accepting bids Friday for Elvis Presley's former personal planes, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II. The auction appeared to dump cold water on a social media-fuelled campaign pleading with Graceland operators to keep the planes on display, as they've been for 30 years. Graceland's new owners stirred controversy last April by moving to end a joint venture with the planes' owners, a Tennessee-based group called OKC Partnership. Graceland notified OKC that the planes had to be removed from Graceland on or shortly after April 26, 2015. AND words are flying between fans and EPE, and Priscilla has again responded to the criticism.

Remembering Elvis Back-up Singer Millie Kirkham

One of Elvis' most beloved back-up singers, Millie Kirkham, passed away on Sunday in Nashville. Millie, 91, suffered a stroke last week. Millie sang back-up for Elvis both in the studio and on the stage but she is perhaps best known for coming up with, and performing, the famous 'woo-ooh-ooh' part in 'Blue Christmas'. Elvis didn't want to record the song and told Millie and her fellow singers to sing something so silly that RCA would never release it. Of course, the song was released - and it's now a holiday classic.

Elvis Presley and Racism : The Ultimate, Definitive Guide

In April 1957, Sepia magazine, a white-owned sensationalist monthly for black readers, took up a discussion, 'How Negroes Feel About Elvis', as controversial then as it is today: the case of a white kid - Elvis Presley - who adopted black music and became the most successful artist of his time. When the 'establishment' accused Elvis Presley of being vulgar, of being deliberately sexual, they did not mean this. This was the cover for what was really meant, what was really feared, and that was that Elvis would lead to equal rights and racial integration. And not just Elvis any white person singing rock 'n' roll. Carl Perkins was warned to not do his show. Elvis was simply the number one guy and therefore got the most attention. Here is our definitive response to this nonsense. Read more.

Review : He Touched Me : The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley DVD

He Touched Me: The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley. Brilliant, sincere, touching could all be used to describe this two part documentary and no more would need to be said but then again the purpose of a review is to give the reader an in-depth description of what is being reviewed. This two part documentary, narrated by Sander Vanocur, is definitely a labor of love and the sincerity of all involved shines through time and time again. The documentary delves deeply into exploring the religious side of Elvis' life, which most Elvis fans knew existed, but had only heard little snippets of prior to this documentary.

Review : Elvis, Linda & Me: Unseen Pictures & Untold Stories from Graceland Book

Jim Cox, author of 'Inside Graceland: Elvis' Maid Remembers', has done a wonderful job telling Jeanne LeMay Dumas's story in the riveting 'Elvis, Linda & Me'. Miss Dumas has been Linda Thompson's best friend since they met in 1972 as they competed for the title of Miss USA. With so many Presley books in print, it's rare that a new project will be so chock full of never-before-told stories and unpublished photographs that you want to tell everybody you know to go out and purchase a copy, but that's exactly how I feel about this book. For my money, the candids of Elvis in his Karate outfit/black belt during his June 1973 concert tour, with Lisa Marie in a Nashville hotel room in-between shows and unseen photos of Elvis' bedroom were worth the price of the book... and then some!

Coming soon isthe final Straight Arrow's single-digipack release of 2014 - 'Meet Me…at Del Webb's Sahara Tahoe!', featuring May 26th, 1974 Midnight show. While Elvis was alive, many fans dreamt of a chance to meet the man. The best chance that people had to meet him was at the Sahara in Lake Tahoe, where the intimacy of the showroom gave Elvis the possibility to interact with his fans ‘upclose and personal’. Those that were lucky enough to witness the star during one of his shows there in May ’74, witnessed a charismatic performer in full control of his art and his audience.

Review : Elvis A Generous Heart DVD

For all his accomplishments, perhaps Elvis Presley's greatest, and unknown legacy was his enormous generosity, unknown until now. With the use of new interviews, on-location filming, classic footage and photos, Elvis A Generous Heart takes you through the history of a shy, humble country boy always ready to share his love, and treasures, with friends, family and even complete strangers. For the hardcore Elvis fan there is perhaps too much same old. But the new material and unseen footage on offer go a long way, offering a new insight and appreciation of the world's greatest entertainer.

Review : I'll Remember You FTD CD

This concert has been a pleasure to repeat listen too. Thus I must recommend I'll Remember You, not really for any content (as it's the same as Aloha From Hawaii) with 'Until its Time' swapped from 'Burning Love' and it is an extremely short show too, but for the sound quality clear throughout!

Still Crazy After All These Years! (2 CD Set) from Touchdown

The touchdown label has chosen the July 22nd 1975 show from Asheville for their next release. 'Still Crazy After All These Years!' is a 2 CD Set and said to be a Superb audience sound recording. Many fans know: that the tour with which Elvis stopped for 3 days also in Asheville just made the best tours Elvis in his career. It is also the tour where he for the last time gave still really energetic shows, then he never again approached completely these great concerts.
