1956 EPE : This chapter documents the prolific creation of merchandise unleashed beginning in 1956 by Colonel Parker, with the assistance of Hank Saperstein, under the EPE (Elvis Presley Enterprises) banner.
Elvis Buttons : If you loved Elvis or hated him, a button was available for you to let the world know.
Elvis Magazines : During his lifetime, Elvis Presley appeared in hundreds of magazines. In the early days, he was confined to a paragraph or two in a hillbilly magazine. By 1956, however, Elvis progressed first to appearances on covers to magazines devoted entirely to him.
Elvis Movies : Elvis made 4 movies from 1956 to 1958. Fortunately, thanks to the Colonel and the movie studios, a wide variety of promotional material was created for the movies. Records/RCA : Elvis' record releases of the 1950s are documented in this chapter. Also covered are the RCA promotional and advertising pieces created in conjunction with the record releases. Elvis Photos & Postcards : This chapter documents collectible paper items, including bonus photos and postcards. Elvis Sheet Music : Due to their affordability and the relative ease of locating them, a complete collection of Elvis 1950s sheet music is an obtainable goal.
And, Autographs : One of the most desired items of any Elvis collector is an authentic autograph.

Collecting Elvis Presley Book by Sean O'Neal.
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.
