Expected soon from the E. P. Collector label is another exciting new release titled (label E. P. Collector, catalogue number EPC 2017-14). Elvis Presley opened his 11th Las Vegas season on August 19th, and he performed a total of 27 shows, closing on September 2nd. Once again, Elvis revisited his live repertoire based on previous seasons and he included several tracks from the December '73 recording sessions, and he also added songs like 'Softly As I Leave You' and 'If You Love Me (Let Me Know)'. Elvis' new love, the beautiful Sheila Ryan was present and Elvis sang the rarely performed 'Early Morning Rain' for her. He sings the complete song.

The Las Vegas, August 29th, 1974 Dinner show is previously unreleased except for 7 songs released from a soundboard source by the FTD label ('It' s Midnight' CD). This concert is taken from an early generation copy of an original audience recorded cassette tape. As usual, you may ask your supplier for samples.

This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipak with a great collection of quality images taken in August 1974.

As with all our releases, this CD is a labour of love and hope you enjoy it.

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.
