Elvis 'Nashville City Limits' Ruby Red Vinyl LP Record 200 NUMBERED copies
Few rooms in the music world have seen as much history as RCAs Studio B in Nashville. Steve Sholes, RCAs head of Country recording since the late 1940s, had signed Elvis Presley to the label in November 1955. Elvis' success helped Sholes and guitarist-producer Chet Atkins to convince their bosses that RCA needed its own studio in Nashville. Studio B opened in November 1957. Soon thereafter, Sholes and Atkins, along with Owen Bradley and a few other Nashville producers, responded to the rock & roll insurgence by beginning to make records in a smoother, more pop-influenced style, often employing string and horn sections and background singers not to mention an A-list of core musicians. This so-called Nashville Sound resulted in many crossover hits and helped establish Nashville as one of the nation's premier recording cities. (liner notes by Joe Krein).

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
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.
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.
