Elvis Presley has topped the UK album charts for a 12th time with the 'If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' CD. Elvis claimed the top album spot with 79,000 chart sales, giving him the second-fastest selling album of the year. Receiving the award on Elvis' behalf, the star's former wife Priscilla Presley said: 'This is an album that Elvis always really wanted to do and he would have been so pleased to know his fans are still there and they continue to love his music. The most talented team put this album together and helped us all realise an unfulfilled dream'. Elvis has had more UK number one albums than any other male solo artist.

Review

There have been several attempts at an Elvis Presley remix album, none of which have worked. This one does! The songs don't and were never intended to replace the original masters, nothing ever could, but to my ears Sony Music have succeeded where others have failed - they have produced an album that that while remaining faithful to the style that was Elvis Presley have created a new listening experience. And this is what the album is, a new listening experience, not a replacement of his body of work. And importantly it is an album. One that Elvis would have - could have - gone into the studio to cut. Elvis Presley CD, Book and DVD Reviews Review : If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

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.
