Elvis: Summer of '56 Deluxe Memorabilia Collection Box Set will be released in April. The set contains a 24-page book covering Elvis' life and carrer with 'extensive photoraphs', movie memorabilia from 1956, and a DVD with the earliest home-movie footage of Elvis at 21. With all this the set tells the story of the cultural and musical icon known as the King of Rock and Roll.

The programmes examine the life of the man who swooned his way into the lives of teenage girls across America, from his beginnings at Sun Records to becoming an international star with countless hits on the Billboard chart. Amongst his contemporaries interviewed are guitarist Scotty Moore, drummer D.J. Fontana and backing singers The Jordanaires.

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.
