Elvis Sings Don't Cry Daddy And Other Great Songs CD
February 28, 2021
The February 21, midnight show was first released on the album 'Let It Be Me' released in 2006, but now you can hear this show in a better sound. The show is really good with a very good setlist with a dynamic version of 'Long Tall Sally' and great renditions of 'Don't Cry Daddy', 'Walk A Mile In My Shoes' and other songs. Feel like you were in the audience to see the greatest singer of all time... Elvis on stage during his early Las Vegas shows was full of energy and at his best vocally and physically. As Robert Hilburn noted in his LA Times review of Presley's 1970 winter season in Las Vegas, 'Elvis … has done what once seemed impossible. He has become king on his own terms.'

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.
