Back in June 1972, Elvis Presley played four hotly anticipated shows at Madison Square Garden. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the concerts, RCA/Legacy is releasing Prince From Another Planet: 40th Anniversary Edition, including two CDs and a DVD. In this clip from 'Prince', previously unseen fan-filmed footage of Elvis performing Suspicious Minds as captured on a hand-held camera by a tenacious fan with a knockout view, the footage is part of hour-long performances, it gives a different sheen to the massive gigs, documenting the experience as from a fan's direct perspective. Elvis shakes, rattles and rolls through his 1969 Mark James-penned hit, and of course, his sparkly blue outfit looks as good as ever.

View Elvis Presley Video Ernst Jorgensen's and Roger Semon's / Sony's Presentation during Elvis Week 2012. Topics discussed are new, old, and possible future discoveries, including the recently found I Forgot To Remember To Forget from a Louisiana Hayride performance in 1955. And specifically an in-depth discussion on the exciting 'Prince From Another Planet' Madison Square Garden CD/DVD Box Set to be released at the end of October.

One important piece of information is the DVD included in Box Set has been meticulously synced to the audio ...

Also included is a 48 page booklet with a 5000 word essay by Patti Smith's guitarist Lenny Kaye who attended the June 10th show as young reporter for Rolling Stone Magazine will add a special touch to the set. The original MSG release was rush released and as a consequence did not receive the mastering it deserved. This time around Michael Brauer states that the sound is awesome and just like being in the Arena with Elvis!

DVD:

Afternoon show filmed June 10, 1972 (approx. 1 hour)

The Deluxe Edition also comes with an extra DVD that presents unseen footage of the Saturday afternoon show, captured on hand-held camera by a fan, and now acquired by Legacy from that fan decades later for this package. Rarely is unseen footage of Elvis in concert discovered, so this footage lends historical importance to the package. The film is a revealing portrait of a physically commanding Elvis and his powerhouse TCB Band, background vocalists, and orchestra. And with the video meticulously synced to the audio ... it will be a gem!

Afternoon press conference held June 9, 1972 (approx. 20 minutes)

Along with the concert film on the DVD is another video document, the press conference that took place on Friday afternoon before the big weekend. Attended by Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis' father, Vernon Presley, Elvis disarms and wins over the New York press corps with his good-natured demeanor. For example, When asked, for example, 'Which kind of song do you like doing the best?' - Elvis answers, 'I like to mix 'em up. In other words, I like to do a song like 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' or 'American Trilogy', or something. Then mix it up and do some rock and roll, some of the hard rock stuff. I'm not the least bit ashamed of 'Hound Dog' or 'Heartbreak Hotel' ...' Rarely is unseen footage of Elvis in concert discovered, so this footage lends historical importance to the package.

* Michael Brauer is a New York-based mix engineer whose credits encompass a wide range of genres and includes The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, John Mayer, Ash, My Morning Jacket, and more. He won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album for his work on John Mayer's Continuum, 'Best Alternative Album' for Coldplay's Parachutes, and also 'Best Rock Album' for Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida'. Given his credentials, we believe he'll bring an interesting mix to these fantastic shows.

Prince From Another Planet takes its title from a New York Times headline that accompanied its rave review of the King of Rock 'n' Roll's four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden (80,000 tickets sold), the weekend of Friday through Sunday, June 9-11, 1972. CD two reprises the Saturday night show in its entirety, some 20 songs (plus introductions) originally issued on LP on June 18, 1972, just eight days after the concert took place. CD one reprises the (slightly longer) Saturday afternoon show, some 23 songs.

There will also be a 2 CD only set in the Sony 'Legacy' series.

Elvis Presley Video Video Preview: Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet. Never before have we seen an Elvis concert from the 50'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.
