In December 1960, RCA was preparing a 'compact 33 EP' to be released in January 1961. But is was not to be, until now. Here we have the recently discovered piece of official RCA paperwork, an 'RCA Listing Notice' that shows the preparation for the release, assigning catalogue number 'LPC-123'. For reasons still unknown the release was withdrawn at the very last moment. The title track was 'Love Me' followed by 'Hound Dog', 'Don't Be Cruel' and 'Jailhouse Rock' : of course huge hits for and by Elvis, adding excitement to the release.

Now, 52 years later, this EP is finally released to and for the Elvis fans! A fantastic produced release in a stunning and wonderful looking full colour sleeve. The EP is available both in traditional black vinyl and blue.

Here we have the recently discovered piece of official RCA paperwork.

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.
