Elvis Sold Out Vol 5 | 2 x DVD Set
May 12, 2021
Volume 5 is a salute to the original filmers, thanks to whom we can now enjoy these fantastic clips of Elvis on stage. In the liner notes, one of these original filmers describes the excitement of seeing the man in concert, and the challenges of filming him and not getting caught. Several of these filmers later experienced getting scammed by certain collectors for their material, an unfortunate situation that Pyramid is now trying to correct by reaching out to the original filmers and paying them for the use of their footage.
Volume 5 is a real humdinger of a release, this time presented with extensive notes and rare original photos. And the contents are just spectacular, and even include a full unreleased concert performance. If you enjoyed vols. 3 and 4, then you will LOVE volume 5! As always, everything is presented precisely as it was originally recorded, and carefully restored without altering anything. This is the real deal. Get it today!!

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.
