Sheila Ryan, a girlfriend of Elvis' has passed away at the age of 59 after a battle with cancer. Both Kathy Westmoreland and Larry Geller have confirmed this sad news.

Elvis dated Sheila after he broke up with Linda Thompson. Sheila was the October 1973 Playboy cover girl and married James Caan in '76 (divorced in '77). Elvis and Sheila met each other in Las Vegas. Elvis performed 'And I Love You So' many times during his concerts and dedicated it to Sheila. One of the all-time best out-takes is take 1 of 'And I Love You So', where Elvis says 'step here Sheila let me sing to you baby' just before starting the take. 'So many losses recently in the Elvis world. I remember Sheila very well. She was very pretty, very sweet. My heart goes out to her family and friends' : Larry Geller 'Sadly, just receive the news that Sheila Ryan Caan has passed away. You will be missed Sheila' : Kathy Westmoreland.

There have been some people query the validity and credibility of the source [not us] of this news as it has only been to-date on Elvis website's. We have now added the details of the Funeral Service, a little late, September 22, 2012, 10am. And link to sign a Guestbook via the Mortuary service website.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
