Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite : 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl 2 LP Set

The show was choreographed and staged like nothing ever before and featured a multitude of musicians, the Hawaiian Islands, the appreciative and excited audience, and of course, The King Of Rock And Roll - Elvis Presley. The multi-platinum Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite set also was a blockbuster as it hit the top number one spot on the charts in 1973, making this one of the biggest albums of his career as well as one of the most revered live concert albums of all time proving once again Elvis Presley's career was unlike any other in music history. This live master piece takes off with the Memphis blues rocker See See Rider and his huge seventies hit Burning Love. He follows these up with his tip of the hat to his friends The Beatles with the soulful balladry of Something. More of Elvis' own favorites follow with the Hank Williams' ballad I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry and his rockin' interpretation of Chuck Berry's classic Johnny B. Goode. The album also features a nice helping of solid Elvis top chart hits like Blue Suede Shoes, Hound Dog, A Big Hunk Of Love and his smash single interpretation of James Taylor's Steamroller Blues. As a tribute to his Hawaii audience, the ever thoughtful King Of Rock And Roll closed the show with his masterpiece Can't Help Falling In Love from his film Blue Hawaii. In total, the album showcases a very historic Elvis Presley performance which has truly gone onto become the definitive live concert album in his amazing catalog of hit gold and platinum recordings.

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.
