Funny, how time slips away. For 10640 fans who had waited two and half hours to see him live - and many who had waited 14 years - 55 minutes of Elvis was not nearly enough. A silver-haired man, who had carried four sets of binoculars into the Roanoke Civic Center for the women folk he had escorted, turned to them and asked with long-suffering patience, 'Was it worth it?' after Elvis abruptly departed the stage and his announcer appeared to advise: 'Elvis has left the building. He has left the building. He's done split'.
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.
