Ultra rare picture of a 13 year old Elvis Presley, Tupelo, 1948
Suspicion is the word today following the publication of this article and photo. Sometimes we can miss the forest for the trees as they say, either looking at the much admired Elvis Presley or in the case of us all and the experts probably not looking at the 'same' photo originally published in September 2013. But thanks to the keen eye to [obvious] detail from Elvis Australia club member Jeff Moss we have now!!! What is clear today is that the two photos are alarmingly different. Not only is it a different bike the background is vastly different with both shops and cars are clearly 'Photoshoped' in [in at least on of the images !!!! Check out the two photos in question below. Considering the 'experts' made such a big deal about the location, the difference becomes largely relevant. Is it really him? The face is Elvis, but the rest? Serious doubts much now be forever cast over this 'photo' and the seller of it. View the two photos then read my analysis of the original article ...
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.
