Elvis -The Alternate 1969 Recordings is a great collection of alternate recordings from Elvis' legendary Memphis recording sessions at the American Sound Studio in 1969 + an alternate version of 'Let Us Pray' with unique backing vocals recorded for Universal's movie 'Change Of Habit'. This cd features over 20 rare tracks officially unreleased + 4 Bonus Tracks taken from acetates. Elvis -The Alternate 1969 Recordings is a nice addition to Elvis Presley - American Sound 1969, a 5 disc set from Elvis' official record company.

This cd contains the complete unedited take 5 of 'True Love Travels On A Gravel Road' with Elvis singing 'Streets paved with fucking gold', unedited takes of 'Any Day Now' and more... Some of the acetate recordings used for this album are badly damaged. We've included them as a special bonus. These acetate recordings are rare and very hard to find. Some of these recordings are previously unreleased on cd until now.

A limited-edition of only 500 copies.

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.
