Scotty Moore | Meeting Elvis | The Sun Sessions | '68 Comeback Special
June 18, 2016
Its success launched a whirlwind of touring, radio appearances, and Elvis' first break into movies. Scotty was there every step of the way as both guitarist and manager, until Elvis' new manager, Colonel Tom Parker, pushed him out. Scotty and Elvis would not perform together again until the classic 1968 'comeback' television special. Scotty never saw Elvis after that.
With both Bill Black and Elvis gone, Scotty Moore is the only one left to tell the story of how Elvis and Scotty transformed popular music and how Scotty created the sound that became a prototype for so many rock guitarists to follow. 'Everyone else wanted to be Elvis: I wanted to be Scotty'. (Keith Richards).

Scotty talks about meeting Elvis, about The Sun Sessions, where Scotty says that it was Bill Black that came up with the flip side for what would be their first record.

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.
