November 26, 2015 - 8:39:35 PM
August 11, 1971 DS is the fifth show of the second annual Elvis Summer Festival. From The August 1971 season there is no any soundboarding recording available...the dinner show of August 11 is the closest thing, ...second our personal view..even better, because together a superb audio quality, we have the best and varied Elvis' performance of the season. This season shows very well that Elvis has widen his musical range in many ways, giving view of a larger spectrum to his musical performance. Talking about show, what we can say! surely Elvis delivery an Explosive mix between high energetic songs as Proud Mary, Johnny B. Goode, Polk Salad Annie or the oldies Hound Dog and Lawdy Miss Clawdy together power pop ballad like You Don't have to Say You Love Me and It's impossible. Talking about best song is always very hard, however in this case Elvis gives us a hand..after a rare an impromptu version of Memphis Tennessee no too rehearsed, but complete a voice come from the audience 'You are good Elvis, but your band plays too loud' . Elvis replied immediately by saying 'Come on man your ears are too old'. After that Elvis gives life to the first complete and probably best version of 'Tryin' To Get To You'. Elvis' voice reaches a level of unexpended energy, in the same time that band really kicked on the tune, an unbelievable performance for this great show.

Elvis Presley: If I Can Dream
Elvis Presley never got the chance to sing in front of a symphony orchestra. But decades after his death, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra got the chance to play behind him.
Priscilla Presley worked with producers Don Reedman and Nick Patrick to combine some of Elvis's classic vocal performances with a big, lush sound. Plus, they invited special guests to join - Duane Eddy, Il Volo and Michael Buble, who sang a duet with Elvis.
Anthony DeCurtis hosts this one-hour special that chronicles how the project came about through interviews with Priscilla, Don, Nick and Michael, and it features a lot of music.
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.
