We asked our club members to nominate their top 5 favourite artists after Elvis. As I have come to know over the years, The Beatles are highly regarded and we in fact have a few die hard beatles fans on our list. So it is no real surprise to me that The Beatles top our list not only in over all votes but also well clear in the number of 'first' votes. From 1190 entries, with five votes per entry, we have a 'who's who' list including, Tom Jones, Roy Orbison, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Beach Boys, Dean Martin Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra.
The Beatles No. 1 [After Elvis!]

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.
