Not for the first time, the website India.com has mentioned Elvis, this time proclaiming Elvis top of their list of the 5 most influential singers of all time ... 'You don’t need to be in a band to make it big in the music industry, all you need is talent, good looks and a little bit of luck, here are some of the greatest solo music artists, who revolutionized the music industry both in the West and in India to some extent' :

1) Elvis Presley (1935- 1977): Elvis Presley sold more albums than any other individual music artist in history, and the second most overall (the Beatles sold more). As well as being a musician, Elvis was also an actor appearing in movies like 'Jailhouse Rock', 'Blue Hawaii' and 'Love Me Tender'. Some of Elvis' most popular songs are 'Jailhouse Rock', 'Hound Dog', 'A Little Less Conversation', 'Blue Suede Shoes' and 'Viva Las Vegas'. Elvis remains on of the most recognizable singers to this day and his voice uniquely unmistakable.

2) Michael Jackson
3) John Lennon

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.
