Elvis spent some of his free Texas weekends in the summer of 1958 at a fancy establishment called the Western Hills Inn in Euless, about a two and a half-hour drive from Kileen, where he had been renting a home. The candids you can see here were taken on Saturday, August 9, 1958, as Elvis happened upon a Texas Christian University ΣΑΕ frat party going on there (Sigma Alpha Epsilon). As may be seen, they are thrilled to see him, and he is his usual gracious self, even tuning (and likely playing) a guitar handed to him.
The 1972 Madison Square Garden Press Conference : June 9, 1972, in much improved picture quality, plus the transcript to read if you prefer ... Elvis: First of all, I plead innocent of all charges! ...
The Memphis Recording Service (MRS), the producers of the 'Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD, boldly state on the front cover that never before have we ever had live film footage (i.e., with synchronized sound) of an Elvis concert from the 50's ... until this time. Well, we certainly do now! 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.
MRS has ingeniously coordinated licensed, professionally shot black and white newsreel footage (taken at the afternoon September 1956 Tupelo homecoming concert) with the amateur recording made of the concert (which has previously appeared on the Elvis Presley Golden Celebration LP/CD box sets) and it blows you away! Not because of the quality of the footage and audio, but because of the combination! You will hardly believe your eyes and ears!
- The DVD Audio section gives you sound quality superior to CD
- The DVD Video Section Contains both Video Film and synchronized Sound
Very few women in Elvis' life meant as much to him as Ann-Margret. When Elvis later asked his 'foreman' Joe Esposito, what was so special with Ann-Margret, he replied: - She's the female you.
Experiencing relatively complete shows like this one, when Elvis was in top form, means a lot to me. This is FTD's best concert release to date
, and I'll be enjoying this show for years to come. Sit back and enjoy Elvis' August 13 Dinner Show, the sixth and final show that RCA recorded for That's The Way It Is
George Klein, the deep-voiced radio personality who became friends with Elvis Presley in high school and stayed close to the King of Rock 'n' Roll throughout his career, has died. He was 83.
Listen to a comparison
in sound quality between the recent FTD released version of 'Are You Lonesome Tonight?' (For LP Fans Only
) and that of the same performance - remastered - on the upcoming MRS
release Elvis | Made In Germany | The Complete Private Recordings
a 4CD/152-page book.
MRS will have 2 products to release on Record Store Day 13th April 2019. Both titles will be Limited Edition 180-gram 2LP sets with a 24-page photo spread gatefold with stunning pictures.

After the great success of the 'Nashville Ballads
' compilation, this is the superb follow-up, 'Memphis Ballads'. Housed in a stunning 6-panel digipack, this CD contains 20 fantastic outtakes from 1969-1976, all recorded in his hometown Memphis, Tennessee. A truly great collection!
'Diamond Anniversary' goes back to 1971. 'All Things Are Possible' was the fourth CD release and it is about time it became available on vinyl. The first four titles : 'Here I Go Again', 'Old Times They Are Not Forgotten', 'Let Me Take You Home' and 'Holding Back The Years' were a complete sell out and were well received by vinyl collectors. Now 'All Things Are Possible' is available on this deluxe double vinyl album. It mainly contains the January 27, 1971 12.00AM performance. These recordings are among very few known soundboard recordings from 1971. Now this remarkable show is available on this deluxe vinyl album and it's a beauty! And of course the show is included on CD too. The show is remastered and updated in the best way possible! This release is very limited and is available in red or blue vinyl presented in a gatefold sleeve. Get it while you can and add this awesome DAE product to your collection.
In 1980 Felton Jarvis
, Elvis' record producer for the last decade came to the remarkable idea to freshen up some of Elvis' recordings. The idea was to add total new backing tracks to Elvis' voice. This resulted in the 1981 record release of 'Guitar Man'. You either hated it or you loved it is probably the right thing to say about the album. Felton was convinced Elvis would have loved it. The title track 'Guitar Man' written and first performed by Jerry Reed
was one of the tracks considered for the album. Jerry Reed was part of the original recording by Elvis in 1967 and now Jerry Reed was back in the studio with Felton Jarvis to work on the new album. Besides the guitar work he also recorded a 'duet' version of the song.
Elvis Presley 'The '68 Comeback Special' is a newly remastered companion DVD to 'Elvis All-Star Tribute', NBC's upcoming star-studded special, celebrating The King of Rock 'N' Roll's unforgettable 1968 television special. 'The '68 Comeback Special' comprises, as closely as possible, the original television special as NBC would have broadcast it back in 1968. The original special, recorded over several sessions in June 1968, featured Elvis playing the songs that mattered most to him, in his first live performance since 1961. When it aired on December 3, 1968, the special was the week's highest-viewed television program, re-establishing Elvis as a driving force in popular music.
On February 15, 2019 Sony Music will release 'The Best Of The '68 Comeback Special
' CD comprising the Elvis recordings and performances
the upcoming tribute and showcases a new version of the legendary closing number, 'If I Can Dream', as heard in the new special.

While it is well known that Elvis Presley and Sammy Davis Jr. were good friends, first meeting in the 1950s, maintaining a friendship through the years, now, we have a fantastic photo via a news paper clipping from Jet magazine, February 27, 1958 showing Sammy in full swing imitating Elvis, and what's more, the clipping tells us that Elvis was sitting in the front row, roaring with laughter. Imitations were a big part of Sammy's shows and Elvis was not left out in this regard, with Sammy singing Hound Dog in concert.

Victrola label is proud to present 'Elvis: April 10 1972, Richmond' a 2 CD Set containing Elvis' powerhouse concert in Richmond. Welcome to another spectacular 'Elvis On Tour' release, brought to you by the Victrola label. Our recent 'Greensboro, April 14, '72' release was very well received, despite some reviewers failing to point out the fact that we presented a genuine, recently prepared, unreleased mix of the show as well as unreleased bits and pieces of the rehearsals on disc two. The April 10, 1972 Richmond, VA concert was released several times by various labels. Only two releases stands out: original 1995 Vicky label CD 'Carry Me Back To Old Virginia' - first ever release of this show in mono (incomplete) and 2008 Madison label CD 'Red Hot In Richmond' - first release in original 1972 narrow stereo (complete). The Richmond concert was never available in professionally remixed quality - until now! For the first time, these are actual multi-track master recordings that have been used as a source for this show.
'The Sound Of Your Cry' together with its American equivalent 'Greatest Hits Volume 1' always brings back some fine memories. The unique mixes on these two albums make these albums everlasting fan favorites. 'The Sound Of Your Cry' (The album) has never been available on CD until now. Added are the tracks that were featured on 'Greatest Hits Volume 1' that were not featured on 'The Sound Of Your Cry'. All versions are the correct versions as featured on the two albums and some are still unique to these albums only. For example the extended version of 'It's Only Love' and the unique edit of 'What'd I Say' are among the gems that make this album unique. Also worth mentioning are great mixes of 'Angel' & 'Steamroller Blues'. Probably the best compilation album to date.
Angela Lansbury talks about Elvis Presley and Blue Hawaii.
As you can tell, most of the songs on Elvis Sings Memphis, Tennessee are top-notch recordings that deserved better than being used as B-Sides and album fillers. If you think of 1963 and 1964 as wasted years in Elvis' recording career due to the movie soundtracks, then this album may come as a revelation to you. Despite the movie tunes, Elvis was also busy cranking out great material in Nashville.
Cross the road, it's now or never. Or that's what residents in the German town of Friedberg may start humming when their traffic light jumps to green to reveal a hip-swivelling Elvis Presley. Elvis performed his military service there between 1958 and 1960 and the town remains all shook up about its celebrated visitor. To commemorate Elvis' link to Friedberg, located north of Frankfurt, local authorities have transformed three traffic lights into Elvis lights. On red, they show the music icon standing at his microphone. On green, Elvis is seen mid-hip shake, performing his trademark move on tip toes.
When Bootleg Elvis appeared in 2012, it sold out almost immediately, and became an instant favorite of Presley collectors all over the world, most calling it the 'Bootleg Bible'. Since then, additional rare bootleg titles have been discovered, not to mention many unexpected variations of some classic albums.
So … it seemed to be time for a new and updated look at this world. Whereas Bootleg Elvis mainly relied on text to tell the story, this new edition titled 'From Cover to Vinyl | The Artistry of Elvis Bootlegs
' chooses to focus on photographs. Using the 2012 classic as a reference point, we decided to feature scans of every cover, label, piece of vinyl and insert for you. This will make it easy to identify each and every pressing and variation.
So different are Elvis' voices, that if one could find a person who has never heard his recordings and you put him or her on an island and then had them listen to these fifty songs, mixed with say, those of 12 other distinctive singers, and then you then ask him or her, to classify them, to separate the singers, I could bet a million dollars that the person will never say that there are 13 singers, as would be the case, but at least 25.

Elvis was a genius. He didn't express himself the way the middle classes do, which is with word play and being able to explain his actions and reactions. He acted on gut instinct and expressed himself by the way he held the microphone, by the way he moved his hips, by the way that he sang down the microphone. That was his genius ... I believe the essence of any performer is gut instinct ... Because it's all in you, it's instinct.
'Bumps Are Gone But He's Still King!' (E. P. Collector label, catalogue number EPC 2018-19). The Hartford, July 28th, 1976 show is previously unreleased in complete audience recorded form.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the VIK label a special very limited edition 45 RPM box set is released. 'From The Army Reels' deluxe box set contains 5 45RPM / EP releases with beautifully designed sleeves & a CD containing the tracks from the vinyl. Many tracks are presented here for the first time on vinyl. Especially for this release, VIK made an edit of 'cool water' as it was basically not suitable for release in its original form. This beautiful set also contains a 12-page booklet. The set is available in GREEN or PINK vinyl.
CMT stays close to their 'Spliced Take' concept on this new release, although this is an album which stands on its own. While editing this album they have made all songs 'blending in' so you will get the feeling as if you are in the actual session with no pauses. All tracks from the 'Stax Sessions' have been included in this 2 CD set.
One of the highlights is a breathtaking version of 'Sweet Angeline' which has a longer intro and an instrumental break featuring Kathy Westmoreland, Other must haves are longer intro's for 'Just A Little Bit' and 'I Got A Feeling in My Body' and a new ending for 'It's Midnight'. Rehearsals go straight into the songs, and there are some funny portions mixed in. If you liked the previous CMT releases you will LOVE this one, and we guarantee it will not leave your player before (and after) 2019!!
Elvis: 'Wonderful Winter Wonderland' is a spliced take special release and is another winner in the great series and needs no further introduction. One thing we do want to mention is the newly created 'harmony' version of 'The Wonderful World of Christmas', although there are no outtakes available the CMT team managed to make a very different sounding track, where even the vocal ending is far different then the master take! Also just listen to the newly overdubbed version of 'Merry Christmas Baby' which has been re-created from THREE different overdub versions. All the other tracks are spliced very well, with longer intros.
A strictly low number of 250 sets have been produced of Elvis' Sun 45rpm 7" (inch) replica singles. With the same of last year's release of the 10" (78rpm) version, each of the 5 Sun 45rpm replicas have the original etched numbers included with the appropriate song sides and is by far the most original Sun replicas made to date. Not only are all the labels perfect (as the original in size, color and accuracy), the sound quality is excellent with the original Sun sound (including That's All Right) pressed on heavy stock vinyl. The singles come in the same type brown paper sleeves as sold with the original releases. Pre-order now from www.elvispresleyshop.com before they are sold out!!
Elvis Presley was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom today in a special ceremony at the White House. The posthumous award bestowed by President Trump is, along with the Congressional Gold Medal the highest civilian award in the United States. It recognizes those people who have made 'an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors'. The medal was established by President Truman in 1945 to recognize notable service in the war. In 1963, President Kennedy reintroduced it as an honor for distinguished civilian service in peacetime.

When Elvis Presley entered the studio in June 1970, he did so as a man enjoying an unexpected third-act peak. The NBC TV special
- the '68 Comeback
- his record-breaking live return in Las Vegas, and a batch of sessions at Memphis' American Sound Studio
resulting in the acclaimed From Elvis In Memphis
album had successfully reinvigorated his career after a decade of artistic and commercial decline. Elvis arrived at RCA Studio B in Nashville wearing a flamboyant black cape and carrying a lion's head walking stick. His business, though, is to reconnect with the long-lost roots of his music; to create a remarkable album, Elvis Country
. 'I was wondering', he says, 'if any of you guys would like to help me make a few phonograph records?'
Elvis Presley and Jack Lord first met on January 14, 1973 following Elvis' triumphant Aloha From Hawaii television special. Elvis made special mention that Jack was in the audience which completely 'floored' the Lords., 'One of my favorite actors is in the audience, Jack Lord, I gotta say that, you know, Hawaii 5-0'. Afterwards, they went backstage and met Elvis for the first time, and met later at The Lords home facing the ocean on the Oahu side of the island. They met again on February 10, 1973 in Las Vegas.

Elvis One presents volume 2 of 'Pure & Simple
' - Elvis without backing vocals & overdubs, the pure sound of Elvis Presley. Original masters but also some alternate versions were used for this release. In most of the studio sessions the backing musicians were there with Elvis and Elvis was singing along with them – yet here these vocals are faded out if they were present.
Victrola label is proud to present 'Avventura In Oriente' an ultimate release of Elvis' 'Harum Scarum' movie soundtrack material. What makes this new release so special? Most of it has been released before, but never before in such pristine quality! The outtakes come from a direct copy of a DAT cassette that was made on November 1989 in New York City. It was a surprise to discover masters that we had not heard in the way before. On this DAT copy there were also other outtakes from other studio sessions. Most of these outtakes have been released before but never before have they been heard in stereo. The special feature of the Harum Scarum sessions is that the songs were recorded with two drummers that can also be heard simultaneously, this is clearly audible in the sessions. As this release deals with the year 1965, some other songs are included on this release as a bonus.

Including rare footage and home movies, original clips from the movies, and some cool vintage commercials from 1968! (Yes, the Big Mac also has its 50th anniversary!) Presented in 'True' widescreen for the first time! Not stretching out Elvis body or face, but all shots individually repaired for the best result!

On February 14, 1973 Elvis presented Muhammad Ali with an 'Elvis Style' robe emblazoned with the words, 'People's Choice' on the back in rhinestones and jewels. The wording was a mistake as Ali was known as the 'The Peoples Champion'. Elvis was very upset about this but it too late. Ali thanked Elvis for the robe then went directly to the Las Vegas Convention Center for his fight that night against Joe Bugner where he wore Elvis' robe for the first time. Often the story is told he did not wear it this night, but he sure did, and he won the fight too! Sammy Davis Jr was ringside for the fight and bought into the ring post fight by Ali.
