Words & Music by B. Kaye / Ben Weisman
We almost shared a dream
We almost made it as a team
How nice it would have been.
We almost touched the stars
And there stood heaven, almost ours
We were just outsiders looking in.
We had the chance to fall
But fate stepped in to end it all
Before it could begin.
And if it's true, you're really going
There's nothing but goodbye to say
The saddest part of all is knowing
We almost went all the way

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. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
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.
