FTD is pleased to announce the release of Standing Room Only as special 2-disc 180-gram vinyl set. Supplied in a gatefold sleeve, the album features the
Alternative Sleeve Contender before the famous shot from Jacksonville took pole position before the album was officially withdrawn in 1972. The release date is late May.

For those confused or bemused by the sleeve for FTD's recent 2-CD Set, it represents RCA's final chosen draft design for SRO before it's subsequent use for the Madison Square Garden project.

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.
