The last of the hugely successful Frank Sinatra Variety Shows broadcast on America's ABC TV, this seminal program, taped in May 1960, sees Frank welcome very special guest star Elvis Presley home from national service. A rare document of the two biggest superstars of the era, the show features a very special "Love Me Tender" and "Witchcraft" medley by Elvis and Frank along with several solo performances by these stellar performers - Elvis also sings the hits "Fame and Fortune" and "Stuck on You". This dazzling TV event also includes a stunning performance from Nancy Sinatra (her first TV appearance with her father), along with songs and comic sketches by Rat Pack regulars Peter Lawford, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop. A fascinating look at the moment two music legends met.

The Frank Sinatra Show "Welcome Home Elvis" - Elvis Presley / Frank Sinatra 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.
