Cliff Richard Visits Graceland
April 13, 2011
This was a return visit for Richard who came to Graceland in the '60s as a guest of Elvis' father, Vernon Presley. Richard was very excited to be back at the home of the King of Rock 'n' Roll and said, 'Elvis is the reason I became a rock singer. If he hadn't been around, I don't think there would've been a Cliff Richard either'.
One very lucky group of Graceland guests, who happened to be from the UK, had a very special moment when, just before they entered the mansion for their tour, Cliff Richard exited.
Their mouths dropped open and one guest said, 'CLIFF RICHARD ... What are YOU doing here?' Richard responded with a smile, 'You never know who you are going to see at Graceland!'

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.
