Riding the Rainbow
Words & Music by Ben Weisman / Fred Wise
I'm riding the rainbow, hitting the highway to happiness
Oh yes, I'm looking to find someone whose meant to be mine
I'm living to love
and loving to live
I've got a heart
I'm longing to give
I'm riding the rainbow, I'll follow that star to where you are
I'm riding the rainbow, heading for heaven and happiness
I guess somebody somewhere, someday will teach me to care
But being alone,
don't bother me
I'm free to have fun
It's fun to be free
I'm riding the rainbow, I'll follow that star
I'm riding the rainbow to where you are

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.
