For our last CD 'Atlanta Loves Elvis' we selected one of the best Shows from his last Tour in 1976 and for our new CD we will stay in the same Year. This time we decided to take a show from Johnson City from his first Tour in 1976. With 'Right Direction In Johnson City' we present you his show from the 19th of March 1976. Again it's an Audience Recording and the quality is really good for this kind of recordings. With no doubt this show is the best from his first Tour that year and for sure also one of the best of the whole year. The performance of Elvis is on the same level as the one from his last tour and the Set list is excellent. The CD has a duration of 79 Minutes and four seconds and as always includes a 16 Page Booklet.

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.
