The Last Farewell : Welcome To The Jungle CD (#3)
Welcome To The Jungle : The Last Farewell is another great compilation of released and unreleased tracks recorded that kicked off the infamous jungle room sessions. Elvis' first effort is a complete take of Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall and by take 6 the master was completed. She Thinks I Still Care is next and although all the takes aren't available, there is nonetheless some interesting takes such as the complete unedited Take 2B released entirely for the very first time along with some later takes as well. This new CD from outer space ends with The Last Farewell, including some new unreleased takes.
Presented to you in great sound quality with a fantastic booklet, and definitely a great follow-up to the two previous volume of this series. If it sounds like from outer space, you can be sure it's from Venus.

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.
