Live In Las Vegas
Coming soon from the new label 'Universum Productions' in the Elvis world is the almost complete Dinner Show from August 7,1969. This performance was recorded from the audience at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. It has a familiar sound like other already released audience recorded tapes of that period. We would classify it 'average'....ask for a sample and we´re sure you weren't disappointed. The show itself of course is really great.

Elvis Reaches Austin City Limits
Expected soon is our new CD titled 'Elvis Reaches Austin City Limits' (label E.P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2016-05), recorded live from the audience in Austin, TX, March 28th, 1977. The 2nd tour of 1977 was cut short due to illness, but some of the concerts were surprisingly good, especially the Abilene show on March 27th. In Austin, Elvis performs another solid and entertaining show. Note: David Briggs was replaced by Bobby Ogdin on electric piano and clavinet. Among the concert highlights are 'You Gave Me A Mountain', 'Little Sister', 'Help Me', 'Fever' and 'Hurt'. Special moment: it was the very last time that Elvis performed 'Steamroller Blues' – a really cool performance! The March 28th, 1977 Austin, TX show was previously released 14 years ago by the 'Crown' label (a poor sounding CD called 'Elvis Slips Into Austin'). Fortunately, the E.P. Collector producers were able to locate the very good sounding original audience recorded master cassette, taped with a recorder equipped with two microphones. The result is a rich and ambient sound - ask for samples! The CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak filled with a positive concert review from the local press and a collection of cool images taken on March 28, 1977 in Austin, TX.

Elvis Live At Del Webb's
'The new Touchdown release will be a good sounding audience recording from the midnight show on May 25, 1974 in Lake Tahoe. Also the recording isn’t fully complete, we thought as it is such a fine concert that it deserves a release. For your information we like to add, that the introductions of the musicians, the singers and the orchestra are missing. Also omitted from the recording is 'Funny How Time Slips Away'. A different source includes the song, but the soundquality was really bad. So for a better listening experience we decided to not include it. 'Big Boss Man' and 'Can’t Help Falling In Love' are from the same source as the main part of the show, but both are probably from a lower-generation tape. They were first used for the old bootleg 'Big Boss Man In Lake Tahoe' to complete the recording of the Dinner Show on May 24, 1974. Nonetheless the soundquality is nearly the same. Added to the midnight show from May 25, 1974 are three bonus songs from the dinner show on May 24, 1974: 'Help Me', 'An American Trilogy' and 'I’ll Remember You' (first released on the CD 'Big Boss Man At Lake Tahoe').

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.
