Elvis Presley Shows Tender Side in New DVD Elvis Presley Shows Tender Side in New DVD

If you don't think of Elvis Presley as a romantic guy, then your mind will be quickly changed by an enlightening new DVD, Love Me Tender ... The Love Songs of Elvis Presley. If you were around during Elvis' prime, you already know he possessed one of the most charismatic personalities in modern music. It seems like every time the cameras caught a performance, women were just screaming their heads off. But if you've never seen any vintage concert footage, Love Me Tender is a terrific place to start. Narrated by Ashley Judd, the program is heavy on music, giving viewers a chance to swoon over the Memphis superstar, starting with 'I Want You, I Need You, I Love You' all the way through 'I'll Remember You'. Awww, those songs are so sweet. Much of the footage was new to me, including a lively duet with Frank Sinatra and numerous movie clips where he's serenading his co-stars. Plus it includes many of my favorite Elvis tunes, such as 'It's Now or Never', 'Always on My Mind' and especially 'The Wonder of You'. Watch and understand what all the fuss is about.

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.
