'Elvis Presley: Christmas With Elvis And The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' brings together Elvis Presley's best-loved performances from 'Elvis' Christmas Album' (1957) and 'Elvis Sings The Wonderful World Of Christmas' (1971) re-imagined with sublime and exquisite new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

'Elvis Presley: Christmas With Elvis And The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' was produced by Nick Patrick and Don Reedman and recorded at Abbey Road Studio 2. It follows in the phenomenal success of 2015's 'If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra', which sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide and stayed at #1 on the ARIA charts for three weeks, as well as last year's 'The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' sold more than 800,000 copies worldwide.

'Elvis Presley: Christmas With Elvis And The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' will be released on CD, LP, on Friday, October 6th. A deluxe version of the album contains 4 bonus tracks (new symphonic versions of material from Elvis' 'Peace In The Valley' EP) and will be released on CD, on Friday, November 24.

'I hope you'll enjoy this new Christmas album', writes Priscilla Presley, executive producer of 'Elvis Presley: Christmas With Elvis And The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra', in her liner notes for the record. 'The songs chosen were songs that Elvis was particularly fond of and it seemed quite fitting to have The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra once again accompanying him at this very special time of year. I'm positive he would be smiling if this opportunity came up in his lifetime and that this album would definitely be in the making. Merry Christmas to all....'

This holiday season also marks the 60th anniversary of 'Elvis' Christmas Album' (1957), the perennial classic that's become the top-selling holiday album of all-time. Elvis' signature interpretations of secular and sacred holiday classics have become an integral musical component of Christmas round-the-world. topped the Billboard 200 for four weeks in 1957 and 1958 and has remained a constant chart fixture for years after, selling more than three million copies. A reissue on RCA's Camden label was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, becoming Elvis' single bestselling album and the bestselling holiday album of all time.

Material from 'Elvis Presley: Christmas With Elvis And The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra' will be featured in this November's Elvis In Concert U.K. tour, a six-date engagement occurring November 23-30 in Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle, Birmingham, Manchester and London.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

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.
