Video : Whitney Houston talks about how she met Elvis back in 1969

Whitney Houston : 'You don't actually MEET Elvis, you just have to LOOK at Elvis'.

She goes on to explain that her mother Cissy Houston (who sang with the gospel group Sweet Inspirations), used to sing back up for Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin for many years. [Cissy Houston was actually only with Elvis for his opening shows in 1969] and how they were sitting in a room backstage and Elvis walked in with his mink (real fur), glasses on, and she just looked at him and could not say anything (star struck).

She said he was amazing to look at, and it was a moment she would never forget.

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.
