In September 1956, sixty years ago, Elvis did two shows in downtown Tupelo, diagonally across from the Tupelo Hardware Store, where Gladys bought the first guitar for Elvis. The shows were part of the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Dairy Show. The day started with a small reception in the presence of the mayor, followed by a parade through the center of the city. A donation of $10,000 to the government followed later in the day.
As we know well the work of author, Erik Lorentzen, and in particular the most recent release, this book will be another high-quality photo and information book.
And we also know from the 'The Elvis Files' series, that being a Collectors Dream!!! Consisting 8 volumes, each book contains more than 460 pages packed with over 1200 images, many of them never seen before, with interviews and concert reviews.

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.
