To be released shortly (late May) on the VV label will be their fifth release, 'A Man At The Top!' featuring the complete live soundboard recording on August 10th 1970 Las Vegas opening show. This double vinyl release will be accompanied with a DVD with the best available audience film/video of the show . After the success of the first four releases we decided: to give you more ... so we decided to not only bring you the best audio, but also the best video quality possible.

The producers are aware of the fact that the opening night show, as one of the best Elvis Presley concerts ever, has been previously released in different imports. But Here we give you the chance to listen to the show in its entirety FOR THE FIRST TIME in a double high valued collector heavy vinyl set. At the same moment FOR THE FIRST TIME as bonus will be included a DVD OF THE SHOW giving to this release the status of 'UNIQUE'.

'A Man At The Top' wants to give you a unique perspective of the man and his music during this August 1970. This will be the first STEP of a wider project, in fact the producers' intention is to accompany this first volume with other three volumes, in the way to cover all the soundboard recordings of August 1970.

The Vegas third season allows Elvis, after the June studio session, to demonstrate his true abilities in a wider range. We see the best of Elvis in songs that will become the fulcrum of the Elvis show until 1972, Here you can hear the complete opening night. The audio has been carefully remastered from the original source and is complete from the beginning to the end. The vinyl will make the rest, providing to the listener an unforgettable experience!!

Elvis : A Man At The Top 2 LP Vinyl + 1 DVD Set

The opening night is surely a great challenge for Elvis, the shooting of a movie and the rehearsal of a large quantity of new stuff gives the possibility to the man to delivery if no the best show something really different and unique to the audience. The opening show presents 8 new songs, including both the Sides of his next two singles!!! ... the rest is history……

A lot of previous DVD releases have included footage from the different quality and the missing audio ... some time ago the producers acquired all the footage shot from the opening night, directly from the same source in a very good quality. All the different camera angles have been edited to create a real professional movie.

All the footage has been digitally restored in matter to achieve the best result of image quality. All the footage includes matching audio from the original concert in the way to get a perfect sync between audio and image with speed correction of the original footage. Although the show is not complete, the result believe us is very impressive, Elvis as you never seen ... THE BEST QUALITY TO DATE!!!!!

The Double LP set 180 vinyl gram, it never sounded better!!! !

Is a limited hand numbered 500 copies.

It comes with an three fold 300 gram high quality GLOSSY sleeve both Sides printed, giving an unique view. The sleeve will be accompanied Newspapers clips and with many photographs of the opening night, giving to the reader an unique document to read, listen and see, with Elvis at his best. A MAN AT THE TOP of his possibilities.

The VV Label have added a DVD cover, as a bonus, so you can decide for yourself if you want to keep the DVD inside the book or inside a proper single DVD case.

We hope you can enjoy this FIFTH product in the way to give life to the next volume soon as possible.

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.
