Elvis Hilton Showroom Vol. 5 CD
August 23, 2016 - 12:34:25 PM
Here we go with probably the last known recording of a March 75 Elvis Vegas-Show in pretty good, listenable sound. From the reports we have on hand (mainly from our personal archives of original 'Elvis News Service Weekly' magazines) it shows that Elvis did just great since the engagement started on March 18. Forrest Duke from the 'Las Vegas review Journal' commented 'Hilton's Elvis stronger than ever' and pointed out some new titles in Elvis' setlist. Even Glen D. Hardin's Aunt Ann Cummings attended the shows around March 27 and commented positively 'Elvis his old self again'. Well, since you are soon able to own the complete performance on CD just judge yourself! Fans of our series know what to expect, not only from listening but also from reading in the usual high quality booklet that is included with first-hand information from what was going on at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas in March of 1975.
Please be aware that this new release is limited to 300 copies only! Be sure to get your copy if you are interested. Once you have it in your hands, we hope your spare time will allow you to sit back, put your headphones on, flip through the accompanied 16-page booklet and listen to the Dinner Show from March 27, 1975. It's Las Vegas! It's the Hilton Hotel Showroom! It's ELVIS! Enjoy!

Elvis Hilton Showroom Volume 5 CD.
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.
