FTD was started in 1999 with its first release containing material from the second dressing room rehearsal for the '68 Comeback Special. The biggest selling title though is release #4 in The Jungle Room Session.
In the interview with Trevor Cajiao Ernst Jorgensen's main points were....
1. FTD will not be closing in 2019
2. The 'Classic Albums' series is nearly complete but there are more to come, noting 'Aloha' and 'Madison Square Garden' are still to be done.
3. Expanded 'complete session tapes' releases are being considered
4. Plenty more soundboards concerts to come
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.
