Elvis Presley made a special fashion of his famous and spectacular stage outfits, sometimes referred to as 'jumpsuits'. The name 'Elvis' is heard of in every corner of the world, and nearly everybody has heard about the dynamic performer dressed in a typical 'seventies suit' with rhinestones and embroideries in different patterns. But what many people don’t know, is that these suits have their own name and their own story to tell. Not many people know how these outfits came to be characteristics for Elvis on stage, and their development during the years. It all started with the ['Black Leather Suit' in 1968, and ended with the 'Mexican Sundial Suit' in 1977. Elvis became King Of Concerts in the late sixties and seventies - and the stage outfits became an important part of his shows. In this encyclopedia of more that 500 pages we will present you to a full documentary of all Elvis' suits from his famous '68 Comeback Special, his return to live performances in Las Vegas in 1969 and his many tours, including the two documentaries, Elvis : That's The Way Its Is and Elvis : On Tour and the TV Specials Aloha From Hawaii and the 1977 TV Special - through the 1970’s.

Elvis Presley Video Video Preview: Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet. Never before have we seen an Elvis concert from the 50'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.
