Interview with Elvis Presley - The 1969 Press Conference - August 1, 1969.
Elvis: The Essential Undubbed Masters 1969-1976 is a brand new deluxe 8 cd set and it is out now.
Recording sessions can be time-consuming. The process of recording a song or album is often very interesting. It's like playing live in the studio, with the difference that if one goofed, they had to do it all over. Small corrections could be made but especially erasing something from the tape was a problem. Later on with the introduction of multitrack recording equipment it became much easier to alter the recordings. Channels could be erased or added and levels could be adjusted for each separate channel. Often a track that ends up on an LP or 45 contains overdubs that were made at a later stage and added to the master take. Also most of The Elvis masters contain such overdubs. This set contains the master takes as they were made in the studio, without those overdubs. It's as close as it gets to the pure sound of Elvis.
Elvis: Until It's Time For You To Go (Songs Of Love And Heartache). This is a wonderful album of some of Elvis' greatest 70's love songs. All tracks are alternate, undubbed versions.
Elvis: Something For Everybody (Alternate Album) CD. Elvis' thirteenth album released in June 1961. This great alternate album contains rare and hard to find outtakes (some not released by Elvis' official record company) of tracks recorded by Elvis between November 8, 1960 and March 12, 1961 in RCA's Studio B in Nashville, Tennesee. An excellent album with cover art done in 'early sixties' style with the best outtakes available. This is the album that could have been!
Elvis Presley & Helene Fischer 'Just Pretend', this is 'live' on television, the studio recording can be found on the number one album 'The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Somehow, I scraped together enough money to buy every new Presley release so that I could play them in the privacy of my bedroom - all the better to study his unique singing style.
'Elvis & Ann-Margret : Love In Las Vegas' is a beautiful soft cover book with 150 pages (25 x 30 cm / 9.8" x 11.8") of PURE LOVE and the latest book from 'The Elvis Files' author, Erik Lorentzen. The book is written in English and contains a lot of great photos of the beautiful couple. KJ Consulting are proud to publish this book about one of the biggest (Hollywood) romance of the sixties. Only 900 copies printed
. Almost sold out. Order now essential.
This year we have for you a special image, from Elvis and the Colonel, as published in 'Billboard', December 29, 1956, and our modified version, along with video and photos of Elvis at Christmas
, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year. (And much more Elvis in 2017!) The arrival of winter at Graceland was always a special time of year. It meant the holiday season was fast approaching and the anticipation of all the fun things the season would bring, including decorating for Christmas, opening Christmas presents with friends and family, the annual New Year's Eve party, Elvis' birthday, building snowmen in the front yard of Graceland and more.
It's too late now for last minute online Christmas shopping ... but maybe one day ... Merry Christmas; a message from our friends at ElvisPresleyShop.com

The 'Spirit Of Jackson, MS
' CD is now released and our order is on the way to us. On May 5th 1975, Elvis performed a concert in aid of the McComb tornado victims at the State Fair Coliseum, Jackson, Mississippi. Elvis raised $108, 860 to help residents who were affected by the devastation. The audio for this show is damaged beyond repair. However, 'Spirit Of Jackson, MS
' includes two other shows from the State Fair Coliseum. Just over a month after the charity show, Elvis performed in Jackson again and this show is featured on Disc 2. Disc 1 stays at the same venue for a concert given in September 1976.
Up on the 17th floor of the St Regis Hotel in New York City, John Lennon is learning to type. 'It's great', he says, 'Yoko's teaching me'. John is in his bedroom, surrounded by the detritus of creation: guitars, books, notepads, nylon-tipped pens, and... a box full of Elvis Presley singles. 'I asked someone to get all his old singles for me', he says, now down on his hands and knees, opening the box and spilling the bright red RCA labels over the floor. The next 10 minutes are spent sorting them out. My Baby Left Me, Hound Dog, One Night
and the old Sun classics
are in one pile, while crap (John's opinion) like Bossa Nova Baby
and Are You Lonesome Tonight?
go on another.
56 years after its initial broadcast, and 41 years after ABC is said to have discarded the original master videotape, a high-quality source of the soundtrack for the Frank Sinatra-hosted 1960 Timex special has finally been located. The special, officially titled 'It's Nice to Go Traveling', was Sinatra's last for the network, and was conceived as a vehicle to welcome home Elvis Presley, who was returning from Germany, after his separation from the service. Reviews of the show were generally positive, and the highlight of the program was the once-in-a-lifetime pairing of the The Chairman of the Board and The King, as they performed a duet of each other's hits -- 'Love Me Tender' and 'Witchcraft.'
The Sweet Inspirations were founded by 'Cissy' Houston (Born Emily Drinkard, married to Gary Houston at age 21 for two years) mother of Whitney Houston, and sister of Lee Warrick (herself the mother of well-known sisters, Myrna Smith's cousins Dee Dee and Dionne Warwick). Emily and Lee were members of The Drinkard Singers, a family group that had the distinction of recording the first Gospel album to appear on a major label: A live recording from The Newport Jazz Festival in 1959. The line-up included Judy Guions (who later became Judy Clay), Marie Epps, Larry Drinkard, Nicholas Drinkard, ...
Watch the emotional duet featuring Lisa Marie Presley
'I Love You Because
'. The audio 'single' is now available to purchase from iTunes and the video will be available soon. The video itself is a masterpiece that I must say brought tears to my eyes. You will see Lisa Marie in the Sun studio recording the song and home film of Elvis' grandchildren. Lisa Marie performs a wonderful duet with her late father and does not 'take over' the song - with the first 1 minute 33 seconds with only Elvis' vocals before Lisa joins in for the remaining 1 minute 22 seconds. View and listen to the music video clip
Kate Moss has followed up her sensational wearing of an Elvis shirt
(No we don't know where she got it) with an official music video
recorded to accompany the third song taken from the number one album 'The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
'. Talking about being involved in the promo, Kate said: 'I was so excited to be asked to be involved in this project, anything for Elvis'..

After a period of poor health, Larry Muhoberac
has passed away aged 79. It was Muhoberac who played piano for Elvis' at his sensational Las Vegas return to live performing in 1969. In fact, Larry Muhoberac's hands have also doubled for Elvis' in several movie scenes of The King playing the piano. And while Elvis left the building long ago, Muhoberac also played alongside Ray Charles, Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand before moving to Australia with his wife Andra in 1986.

The cleverly titled 'Way Down in the Jungle Room
' is another Elvis session anthology from RCA/Legacy that was conceived in the style of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Elvis at Stax
'. It includes all the masters and many outtakes from the 'Jungle Room' sessions that took place from February 2-8 and October 29-30, 1976 at the 'den' of Graceland
, Elvis' home in Memphis, TN. Back then, nobody could have guessed that these sessions would become a rather sad part of music history as Elvis Presley's last studio recordings. The songs that were recorded at those sessions ended up on the albums 'From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee
' (1976) and 'Moody Blue
' (1977), which were both still released during Elvis' lifetime.

On November 28 & 29, 1976 Elvis performed two shows at the Cow Palace in the flower-city San Francisco. These shows have been regarded as some of Elvis' finest performances during this busy bicentennial year for The King. Gathered here in a beautiful 2-disc digipack, Elvis : Double Date At The Gate, is both shows in excellent quality. Unfortunately, the sound engineer was not able to capture the whole shows while recording, but on this release, you will find every second that was captured. The sound on both shows has been remastered by professionals and has never sounded better. Period.

First time I had any contact with Elvis I was in the hospital and Elvis sent me a telegram ... I had written and recorded this song called Old Friend
and in the song it says, 'Would you be here if I could have been there?' in the song and that really means that at one point I think it was the second time maybe he went into the hospital or something I wanted to come to Memphis and talk to Elvis as a friend, you know, didn't want a Cadillac, didn't need anything, didn't want anything, just loved him.

died November 23, after a year of declining health. Joe first met Elvis Presley in the Army in 1958
and began working for him soon after they were both released from the service in 1960 until literally the day he died seventeen years later. Joe was Elvis' right hand man and head of the Memphis Mafia
'If I Can Dream' was the dynamic production duo of Don Reedman (Barbra Streisand
, Michael Crawford) and Nick Patrick (Plácido Domingo, Il Divo). Reedman first approached executive producer Priscilla Presley
with the idea to marry vintage Elvis vocal tracks with the RPO at famed Abbey Road Studios in London, and it was an idea she wholly embraced. Buoyed by the reception of If I Can Dream, the production Dream Team reunited to emerge with another stellar Elvis/RPO offering, 'The Wonder of You: Elvis Presley With the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
' (RCA/Legacy), a worthy sequel if ever there was.

Sony has done some outstanding reissues featuring Elvis, including taking some chances with the King. This 'new' Elvis Presley album includes the King singing lovely with his backing band at the time with newer overdubs by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This is the second time this has been done, telling me people are digging it.
I found myself really liking the first album, 'If I Can Dream
', simply for the fact they cherrypicked some of El's best vocal performances and added simple, organic and extremely tasteful snippets of the Royal Philharmonic. The results were surprisingly good, with the string arrangements totally unobtrusive to the main instrument, being Elvis' voice. 'The Wonder of You
' focuses less on El's big, well-known hits for '70s material featuring the master soul-mining newer pop material, and, many times, far surpassing the 'original' versions. Elvis' band at the time was top-notch in the studio, so that was an important element for this to work. Well-recorded and mixed, the songs stand by themselves.
