FTD Vinyl is pleased to announce the release of 'Elvis - The Fool Album'. Originally released in July 1973, this album's track listing changed dramatically from RCA's internal documents circulated just one month before. Here for the first time, Disc 1 features the LP sequenced as ORIGINALLY PLANNED. The LP artwork also replicates the original draft layout before it was amended. Disc 2 includes outtakes from the sessions that contributed to the album. Highlights include the rare fully orchestrated version of 'Fool' and the 11-minute plus version of 'Don't Think Twice It's Alright'.

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.
