The review by Jarrad Bevan, titled, 'When Elvis Ruled Our Charts' takes up half a page and is in the eGuide Music section on page 22.
'Every music fan knows Elvis, but it is interesting to spend quality time with a deep, rich ensemble of his finest work. At its best, rock'n'roll inspires and transforms attitudes'.
'Listening to these CDs, it's obvious why he was such a huge success and is still adored. Elvis' sound was a blueprint for what would come later, built on a base of Delta blues and hip-shaking gospel. Elvis changed everything: sex, politics and especially music'.

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.
