[Referring to both The Elvis Files Volume 5 Book and the Welcome Home Elvis Book] Just wanted to let you know that I got the books this morning when I went to the Office. I wasn't here yesterday so she signed for them. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! The girls in the Office were looking at the pictures and asking me questions about who was who! They are beautiful and I am glad I ordered them. You published two gorgeous books about Elvis and you should be proud of yourself. Elvis would be proud of you. Thanks again for doing everything to make sure that I got both books. They must have done an awful lot of research to write both books. The pictures are excellent and I can truthfully say that I have never seen them before. I particularly liked the ones showing Elvis' discharge from the Army and what he had to go through just to get discharged. I also like the truth about Nancy Sinatra meeting him at the airport. I always thought that he was cheating on Priscilla, [With Nancy] who had to remain in Germany, but according to the article in your book, she did it as a publicity gimmick. I didn't know that she was engaged to Tommy Sands. I am learning new things about Elvis as a result of these books and the pictures are excellent. Good work. Patsy Davis.
OMG!!! Today I received the Elvis Files/4. I have been a fan since 1968 and have at least 150 books and magazines. I have never, ever seen a book like this. This is absolutely the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I cannot believe how many pictures I have never seen!!! It is worth every single penny and more! I cannot wait to devour it.This is a first-class publication and you and the author should be very proud to have offered it to us. Previously I received the Graceland book and was blown away by that. But this surpasses even that one! Thank-you so much! Every single page is a gem! I cannot say enough about this book!! Corinne L.

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.
