Elvis Presley : Some Call It Folk CD

Elvis' 1970 Country album was a great idea, so it is a shame that with Elvis' interest in contemporary folk music he didn't release a 'Folk' themed album.

Video : Lowell Hays : Elvis' Jeweller Remembers The King

Among the more notable pieces I made for Elvis during his career include the TCB ring, Aloha ring, the Maltese Cross, and the Lion necklace. Elvis was a very giving person who had wonderful, yet expensive taste in the jewellery he added to his collection. He loved his fans, friends.and family, and he tried to give everything he could back to them I was honoured to be able to work with him.

Annette Day : Elvis Presleys Co-Star in Double Trouble

One of the youngest actresses to ever costar with Elvis, English ingenue Annette Day was just 18 years old when she acted in Double Trouble. Day was discovered in typical Hollywood fashion. Producer Judd Bernard was shopping in an antique store on London's famed Portobello Road when he caught a glimpse of the red-haired teenager. The shop belonged to Day's mother, and Day was working behind the counter that day. Months later, when Bernard was casting for the film, he remembered the perky girl and called on her to ask the fateful question, 'Do you want to be an actress?'.

Hardball negotiations over the 'Lisa Marie'

It does seem clear that both EPE and the owners of the 'Lisa Marie' are involved in some heavy hardball negotiations over how much of the ticket receipts EPE pays the planes owners. Clearly the planes owners have released the news, first to the 'Associated Press' and now in the form of a copy of the letter from Jack Soden of EPE in an effort to garner Elvis fan reaction so to help any such negotiations with EPE to go more in their favour, in response to EPE trying a good old fashioned bluff that they are happy to see the planes removed while trying to re-negotiate the price agreement down.

Graceland tells Lisa Marie to get lost

This rather disturbing 'Associated Press' report really makes us concerned about the direction EPE is taking Elvis' legacy and particularly the 'Graceland' name of late : For 30 years, tourists from around the world have paid money to get a look at two airplanes once owned by Elvis Presley at Graceland in Memphis. Fans enjoy touring the planes for their direct connection to Elvis Presley and his jet-setting lifestyle, a sort of touchstone to the life of the King of Rock and Roll and his family.

The Return To Vegas 1969 Soundboard Concert CD from FTD

FTD has released 'The Return To Vegas' and our order is on the way to us. This is the official release of the soundboard recording that Joan Deary planned as a double album release back in the late seventies. It's the earliest known professional recording from Elvis' 1969 engagement in Las Vegas. The original tape box has 'opening night' written on the back, but that's not the real date. Some experts believe it's from August 3, but we have no information whatsoever to suggest a certain date. However, the arrangements seem to suggest that this show is definitely several days earlier than the shows RCA recorded from August 20 and onwards.

And as stated above, now you can hear this show for the first time on cd in remastered sound and in the right speed!
