Review: Elvis: 'Roustabout' FTD Special Edition Classic Album CD

For many years, a release of Roustabout in Follow That Dream Records' (FTD) classic albums series was an often-made request that the label finally filled in July of 2017. One of the possible reasons why this definitive edition of the soundtrack album took so long to release was the possibility of more outtakes to appear after the early 2000s discovery of the previously unreleased alternate title song 'I'm a Roustabout' that was initially released on the 2003 compilation album 2nd to None. Nothing new has turned up since then, though, and the number of surviving outtakes for Roustabout remains relatively small. To make up for the lack of material, FTD chose to expand the album with newly remixed outtake versions of all eleven master takes.

The Real Story of Elvis Presley: Vernon and Gladys Talked About Raising Young Elvis

Young Elvis Presley had become a phenomenon, and in the fall of 1956, the New York Daily Mirror decided it was time to give him a serious look. And so in early September, columnist Sidney Fields headed down to Memphis to gather material for a series of articles in the Mirror. He didn't get a chance to talk with Elvis, who was in Hollywood shooting Love Me Tender at the time, but Fields was able to get an extensive interview with Elvis' parents, who invited him into the Presley home. That interview with Gladys and Vernon Presley was the basis for a five-part expose entitled 'The Real Story of Elvis Presley', which ran in the Daily Mirror from September 23-27, 1956.

Miley Cyrus: new album was inspired by Elvis

Miley Cyrus says that new album Younger Now was inspired by her love of Elvis Presley - and the fantasies she had about him. And the singer was so obsessed with him that she used to rewind one of his movies just to hear him say her name. 'I was inspired by Blue Hawaii. Elvis' girlfriend's name is Miley. 'I used to watch this movie over and over and over again because he would say 'I love you, Miley' ... Miley also performed a series of songs live for 'BBC 1' wearing an Elvis T-shirt.

Interview with Elvis Presley: October 28, 1957, Los Angeles

Interview with Elvis Presley just after the general press conference, but prior to his debut at the Pan-Pacific in Los Angeles. How do you write music if you don't read it? It's all a big hoax, honey. I never wrote a song in my life. I get one-third of the credit for recording it. It makes me look smarter than I am. I've never even had an idea for a song. Just once, maybe. When? I went to bed one night, had quite a dream, and woke up all shook up. I phoned a pal and told him about it. By morning, he had a new song, 'All Shook Up'.

The Memphis Recording Service (MRS), the producers of this DVD, boldly state on the front cover that never before have we ever had live film footage (i.e., with synchronized sound) of an Elvis concert from the 50's ... until this time. Well, we certainly do now!

Review: Elvis In Person: The 1969 Fantasy Concert DVD

I must admit to finding that the 1969 'Fantasy' concert is a remarkable work that should have broad appeal - a big surprise. My initial skepticism was quickly overcome. This concert DVD should appeal to any Elvis fan that likes Elvis music to start with. With full quality normal audio, from CD, anyone can play this via their DVD player preferably then with the audio output via a stereo system. [And this is no diversion from what the format is] This DVD is well worth consideration for inclusion in your Elvis library for several reasons.

'He poured his heart out to me': Priscilla Presley, candidly speaks on life with Elvis

She was married to the late Elvis Presley for six years, prior to his death in 1977. And in an interview with the Today show's Richard Wilkins, aired Wednesday, Priscilla Presley candidly spoke on life with the iconic singer. Admitting that she never viewed her husband as a worldwide phenomenon, the 72-year-old revealed a vulnerable and softer side to his persona: 'He poured his heart out to me'. 'I still remember, vividly, picking up the phone, the reaction of not believing it, there was no way I could comprehend…' she said. 'Going back to Graceland and hearing his father wailing, crying, crying out his name, it was probably the most heartbreaking sound I'd ever heard. Priscilla appeared on the Channel Nine breakfast program to promote her upcoming Australian tour in November, that will see her share stories from her fascinating life.

Elvis Presley: A Musical Prodigy

Elvis was a genius. He didn't express himself the way the middle classes do, which is with word play and being able to explain his actions and reactions. He acted on gut instinct and expressed himself by the way he held the microphone, by the way he moved his hips, by the way that he sang down the microphone. That was his genius ... I believe the essence of any performer is gut instinct ... Because it's all in you, it's instinct.

Elvis: 40 years on ... and the world turns ...

It's hard to believe but here we are, 40 years on from a day carved indelibly in the memory of every Elvis fan old enough to be around when the stunning news of Elvis' death was announced. 40 years gone, but paradoxically, 40 years where he has been with us ever more visible and all encompassingly than when he lived. Today Elvis is bigger and more entrenched in popular culture and conscience than back in 1977, when his legendary status was acknowledged but barely understood by the world at large. Today Elvis' iconic status and continued relevance is universally acknowledged. It's not just Elvis fans commemorating this 40th anniversary, not just the native English speaking countries of the world.
