Moody Blue is the final studio album by Elvis Presley. The album was a mixture of live and studio work, and included the four tracks from Elvis' final studio recording sessions at Graceland in October 1976 and two tracks left over from the previous Graceland session in February 1976.

'Moody Blue' was a previously published hit song recorded at the earlier Graceland session and held over for this album. Also recorded at the February session was 'She Thinks I Still Care'. 'Way Down' became a hit after Elvis' death less than one month after this album's publication.

NOW, continuing on from the excellent Follow That Dream vinyl editions, FTD is pleased to announce the release of 'Moody Blue' in its original discarded art layout for the first time.

To create a unique collectible, it is issued in clear vinyl and each Pressing is hand numbered.

This is edition is limited to 1500.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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.
