Pure Gold : The Alternative Album (1 CD Digipack)
Pure Gold For Your CD Collection!!!!
Pure Gold was a 1975 compilation album released as part of RCA's budget 'Pure Gold' series of albums.
Though at this point in his career Elvis Presley was focused more on the country music market, this compilation focuses more on earlier material than his 1970's hits.
When originally released, 'Kentucky Rain', 'Fever', 'It's Impossible', and 'In The Ghetto' were true stereo mixes while all other tracks were in 'electronically reprocessed' stereo. When this album was eventually issued on CD for the first time in the early 1990s, the 6 songs from the 50's were restored to original monaural sound.
- The album wasn't a strong seller when it was first released in 1975.
- It was certified Gold 9/12/1977, Platinum 3/20/1988 and 2x Platinum 3/27/1992 by the R.I.A.A.
- The front cover photo features Elvis from his ' Aloha from Hawaii' concert in 1973.
- In Europe the album was released, with a differend cover, in RCA's ' Take-Off ' series.
Released now in a stunning 3- panel digipack is an Alternate Album Of 'Pure Gold'. Containing masters, first takes, master takes and other rarities!!! This release does not contain any 'electronically reprocessed' stereo.
The disc is GOLD on the back (playing side) and has gold vinyl grooves on the label side!! (see pic)

The Complete Louisiana Hayride Archives 1954-1956 CD From MRS : CD / 100 page book
The MRS / JAT Productions release of The Complete Louisiana Hayride Archives 1954-1956 CD is a dream come true but I can't as there was no anticipation something like this would ever be released. For years now we have had the basic el cheapo compilation of the basic tracks but now we have a full CD with a running time of over 75 minutes that gives a very good overview of Elvis in concert in the 1950s. This CD is presented exactly the same as the MRS releases Off Duty With Private Presley Book Deluxe CD set, Tupelo Welcomes Home Elvis Presley Deluxe CD set and Such A Night in Pearl Harbor CD and 100 page Book set.

The Elvis I Knew by Charlie Hodge DVD [Elvis Presley Documenetary and Concerts on DVD]
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD [Elvis Presley Documenetary and Concerts on DVD] [Below]
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet. Never before have we seen an Elvis concert from the 50'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.
