To be released soon (early September) from the 'VV' label an unreleased (audience recorded) show from the magical Elvis' first Las Vegas season titled 'Rock Is Back' a limited hand numbered 500 copies release featuring the Las Vegas August 15, 1969 Midnight Show. We are glad and overall happy to have the possibility to produce a show from Elvis very first season. VV label for his seventh release is proud to present the complete show from August 15th midnight performance of the first Elvis' historical Vegas season.

The midnight show from August 15th, as presented on this double vinyl set, represents one of the best show of Elvis' first and maybe best Vegas season, Elvis' first Vegas act is incredible, like a wild animal free from his cage, Elvis gave life to a memorable first season. Dressed in black tunic, Elvis stepped in the stage shaking, gyrating like nothing was changed in the last 9 years of his absence from the stage, He performed the best of his past hits and the new two singles from the Memphis 1969 sessions. The music is the focus of the season, Elvis appear better than ever, concentrate and strong He delivered a long show with no surprises in the track list respect the season, but pure dynamite from the begin to the end of the show.

This recording come from an early generation copy of the audience recorded master tape, the sound quality is very good considering the first season. We have on our hands the original mono tape of extremely good quality enabling us to carry out simple re-mastering work, concentrating on the reduction of noise trying to achieve a more clear sound and of Elvis, keeping his vocal power up in the central mix and at the same time trying to give a great definition to the background music. The Tape is almost complete, missing a little part of the Life Story dialogue , while we have been able to include Can't help falling in Love from a different source of the same show in the matter to give to the show the deserved completeness. So enjoy our work and realize: this is one of the best possible audience recording of this season you can find all around! In spite the RCA recording of the last week of the season; here you have the chance to listen to a solid and powerful Elvis in an almost complete show far away from nervousness of an opening night or a professional recording.

As usually We try always to give more release after release at least something different, this new LP comes with an CLASSIC SLEEVE AS OUR Last RELEASE, WITH A FEW BEAUTIFUL concert giving an unique view. The bonus CD comes with expanded tracklist with included a few tracks from an alternate source , the same used to complete the concert with the song Can't help Falling in Love . We decide to include expanded booklet LP sized to complete this beautiful package.

The LP 150 Vinyl Gram, it brings to the best quality to date!!!! Is a limited hand numbered 500 copies.

We hope you can enjoy this SEVENTH 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.
