In its first week 'If I Can Dream' become the 749th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2015) and finally the 600th No.1 for ARIA (1983 to 2015), plus the 396th album to debut at the top of the Albums chart.

Elvis has only hit the top of the ARIA Albums chart once before, back in late September 2002 when 'ELV1S' or '30 #1 Hits' (it was known by both titles here and overseas) spent four weeks at the top. This new No.1 album becomes the 290th for an American Act to hit the top and also the 207th for a Solo Male Artist and the first solo male act to hit the top in almost two months, as the last was Troye Sivan back in mid-September with his 'Wild' EP. Elvis also becomes the third act to land two or more posthumous album after John Lennon (two) and Kurt Cobain (via Nirvana; three).

Elvis Presley Video Australian TV Commercial for 'If I Can Dream' CD (00:30)

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 (with 'If I Can Dream') 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. Read the full review.

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.
