Elvis: 'Out In Hollywood' Vol. 3 and 'The Nashville Marathon' Vol. 2 CDs

MTP is back with two (2) amazing new releases, 'Out In Hollywood' Vol. 3 and 'The Nashville Marathon' Vol. 2. We all remember the 'good old days' when FTD released their first releases like 'The Jungle Room Sessions', 'Fame and Fortune' and 'Out in Hollywood'. Those CDs were in our players for weeks, due to all the unreleased stuff, great sound quality and last but not least the fact there were a lot of complete outtakes never heard before. After a while, although the releases were still fantastic, we got more and more CDs with lots of outtakes from the same songs, great for collecting, but the listening pleasure was a bit less fun... The label continues their series with two releases which will be in your player for weeks, and are again 'Meant to be Played'.

Interview with Ginger Alden

Ginger Alden first met Elvis when she was five years old. Her father was a Public Relations Officer in the Army in Memphis. When Elvis returned from Germany and was no longer in the service, our family was invited, by an uncle of Elvis', to join Elvis and a group at the local fairground. Elvis remembered Ginger's father and walked over to meet him and his family. Elvis was so kind and cordial. He shook hands with each person and patted Ginger on the head. No one never dreamed their paths would cross again or that in 15 years Ginger would become engaged to Elvis!

Review | Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

The Memphis Recording Service (MRS), the producers of the 'Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD, boldly state on the front cover that never before have we ever had live film footage (i.e., with synchronized sound) of an Elvis concert from the 50's ... until this time. Well, we certainly do now! 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 DVD Audio section gives you sound quality superior to CD
  • The DVD Video Section Contains both Video Film and synchronized Sound
MRS has ingeniously coordinated licensed, professionally shot black and white newsreel footage (taken at the afternoon September 1956 Tupelo homecoming concert) with the amateur recording made of the concert (which has previously appeared on the Elvis Presley Golden Celebration LP/CD box sets) and it blows you away! Not because of the quality of the footage and audio, but because of the combination! You will hardly believe your eyes and ears!

James Burton Looks Back on Elvis Presley's Vegas Years

On the 42nd anniversary of his death, Elvis Presley's longtime guitarist looks back on his career rebirth in 1969 - now immortalized on a massive box set. 'I hadn't actually met Elvis before I went to work with him', says the legendary guitarist James Burton, who'd already worked with a veritable who's who of rock stars when he picked up the phone one night in 1969 and found himself speaking to the King himself, Elvis Presley. 'I'd played the Louisiana Hayride around the time he came through when he was just starting out, but I didn't actually meet Elvis until 1969. He called me on the phone at my home in L.A., and I talked to him for two or three hours on the phone. He asked me if I'd be interested in going to Vegas and putting a band together for him. So I did'.

Elvis Presley's 1969 Rebirth In Las Vegas

It was July 31, 1969, and Elvis Presley was all keyed up. It was opening night at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, and he was about to give his first full concert appearance since 1961. In June 1968, he'd taped four shows before a live audience for his television special, Elvis, but that had been in an intimate setting, not a 2,000-seater showroom. And there would be no opportunity for any retakes tonight. It was make-or-break time.

William Morris Agent Larry Auerbach remembers Elvis Presley

Larry Auerbach booked Elvis Presley's first network television performance in 1956. The agency had just signed on to represent Presley when a producer for Jackie Gleason's 'Stage Show' called Auerbach and said he needed an act, 'a country singer', for an upcoming broadcast. So Auerbach said, 'I've got one', while knowing almost nothing about Presley's act. During rehearsal, there was a problem. Producer Jack Philbin turned to Auerbach while Elvis Presley gyrated and said, 'All the parts in his pants are moving'. Auerbach, assigned to fix the problem, took the singer to an Army and Navy store at 53rd Street and Broadway and bought him his first athletic supporter. 'He said, 'Why am I wearing this?' and I said, 'So your parts won't move', Auerbach recalled.

Elvis' pivotal Year of 1969 celebrated with Elvis: American Sound 1969 featuring over 90 tracks of rare and unreleased material from Elvis' 1969 legendary American Sound Studio sessions, including 'In The Ghetto' and 'Suspicious Minds'. FTD have revised the original wording to the press release they first put out about the 'American Sound '69' set.

Therefore it does not include sub-standard, inconsequential and fragmented material that has surfaced on bootleg over the years. It features all the recordings deemed essential by the producers. FTD also advise that they 'will only manufacturing to satisfy initial orders. Any re-orders will only be available if there is residue stock existing from the first pressing'.

Previously Unseen | Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash

Previously unseen home movie footage which shows Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash together back in 1957 was included in episode four of Ken Burns 'Country Music' documentary series. The clip shows Elvis Presley dancing, possibly to 'Treat Me Nice' from 'Jailhouse Rock'. A Canada Packers sign in the background while Johnny Cash is on the street would suggest that section is filmed in Canada. The first shot is Elvis is chewing gum and dancing - a finger from an unseen man snaps along with his dancing (probably Johnny, based on what comes in a moment).

Glenn Shorrock and Elvis Presley

With a love of rock and roll that began after hearing Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel, LRB's Glenn Shorrock dabbled in more upbeat music. 'I was a fan when I first heard Elvis Presley when I was 14 and found out about this new rock and roll music in America. 'Heartbreak Hotel' was an epiphany as it were. Lying on a bed 108 degrees Fahrenheit in a pretty basic migrant hostel and on the ABC, and I hear this echoing … 'well since my baby left me' … what the hell's that? 'I ran down the corridor and the ABC announcer said 'that was Elvis Presley with 'Heartbreak Hotel' ...

Elvis Presley and Magdalene Morgan

Elois Bedford was probably Elvis' first 'girlfriend' - the relationship ended after perhaps one year when Elvis handed Elois a note as she was about to board the school bus. It said he had gone to another girl. Her name was Magdalene Morgan. Magdalene had had her eyes on the shy youngster for a longer time and she knew - just knew - that one day, sooner or later, they would become 'an item'. 'I guess my infatuation with Elvis started in that little church up in East Tupelo', says Magdalene, known as Maggie in school because people, including Elvis, never got around to learning how to spell her name correctly. 'He sang and picked the guitar. I sang and played piano'.

Review | Elvis: 'Roustabout' FTD Special Edition Classic Album CD

For many years, a release of Roustabout in Follow That Dream Records' (FTD) classic albums series was an often-made request that the label finally filled in July of 2017. One of the possible reasons why this definitive edition of the soundtrack album took so long to release was the possibility of more outtakes to appear after the early 2000s discovery of the previously unreleased alternate title song 'I'm a Roustabout' that was initially released on the 2003 compilation album 2nd to None. Nothing new has turned up since then, though, and the number of surviving outtakes for Roustabout remains relatively small. To make up for the lack of material, FTD chose to expand the album with newly remixed outtake versions of all eleven master takes.

Elvis Presley and Bill 'superfoot' Wallace

American martial arts man Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace who was Elvis Presley's bodyguard and personal trainer from 1974 until his death in 1977 recently talked about his times with the King and gave a rare glimpse of the man behind the legend. 'He was a wonderful person, a nice guy. It was fun working out with him too but you couldn't hit him too hard. You couldn't punch Elvis in the face but it was fun beating up his 'Memphis Mafia'.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

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.
