Singer, 'Morrissey' is currently opening his concerts with a memorable - and faithful - run through the Elvis Presley nugget 'You'll Be Gone'. Morrissey's version shook with swagger, in a fashion that surely would've pleased the King of Rock and Roll. He has performed the song in concert since 2015. And isn't is so cool he has chosen this song and the one that Elvis had a genuine writing credit on (Red West / Elvis Presley / Charlie Hodge).

Steven Patrick Morrissey, known mononymously as Morrissey, rose to prominence as the lead singer of the Smiths.

The Smiths recorded 'His Latest Flame', Elvis' 1961 hit.

His father was an Elvis-fan and one of Morrisseys friends is Nancy Sinatra.

There are several live versions, we have picked the one with the best sound quality.

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.
