AudiRec proudly presents: Elvis - Hilton Showroom Volume 2. This CD includes an audience recording of the complete and so far unreleased performance from December 5, 1975 - only three days after the much acclaimed Opening Show of Elvis' December Las Vegas 75 Season. Includes a 16 Pages booklet.

It's been quite a few months since Elvis' unexpected break-up season of August 1975 and his fans didn't know what to expect from his return to the Hilton Showroom, although there were of course high hopes for a triumphant series of concerts. Also there were two things that immediately catched the eyes and the ears of fans and critics once the 'King' was back on stage in Las Vegas'Hilton Showroom: Elvis was noticeably heavier than ever before in his life and he was singing with a certain quality in his voice which was probably stronger than ever before! It's easy to say so even though audience recordings are mostly far from perfect when it comes to reveal details in a singer's voice. Elvis sang great in December of 1975 and once you get to hear songs like 'Just Pretend' or 'How Great Thou Art', but also 'Trying To Get to You', with this powerful magic of God's given talent in Elvis' Voice you will have to agree.

Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet (including an extensive fan-review of the show written very shortly after the concert was over) and listen to the show from December 5, 1975. It's Las Vegas! It's the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It's ELVIS! Enjoy!

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.
