*Jailhouse Rock was the only Elvis single in 1957 to debut at # 1. The gap in dates between 7/20/57 and 8/3/57 is because another artist/group charted on 7/27 at # 1, and Teddy Bear re-charted at # 1 again, beginning on 8/3/57.

Elvis had a lot of Top 10, 20 40 hits, on the Cash Box Top 100, and # 1's in the other charts within Cash Box, like the Country charts. However, I've chosen to just list the Cash Box Top 100.

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.
