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.

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.
