'Bicentennial Superstar' Volume 3 CD
November 19, 2015 - 6:18:07 PM
This time we paired two rare shows from early June and early September of 1976, both recorded from the soundboard. When Elvis was on Tour in El Paso, Texas on June 2nd he delivered what the fans expected. The show clearly had its moments of excellence and critics were nice enough to call it a typical 'Elvis spectacular'. A few months later Elvis played Huntsville, Alabama on September 6. The tour didn't start very successful but Elvis was able to get in better shape and around September 4 he delivered mostly decent shows until the end of that tour.
Sit back and enjoy experiencing Elvis in the Summer of 76 doing some great renditions of his Concert standards of the time like 'Hurt', 'You Gave Me A Mountain', 'Help Me' and 'America The Beautiful'!

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.
