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'.

Review: Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

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! 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.

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.

The Fifty Voices of Elvis Presley

So different are Elvis' voices, that if one could find a person who has never heard his recordings and you put him or her on an island and then had them listen to these fifty songs, mixed with say, those of 12 other distinctive singers, and then you then ask him or her, to classify them, to separate the singers, I could bet a million dollars that the person will never say that there are 13 singers, as would be the case, but at least 25.

Review: Elvis Presley: 'A Boy From Tupelo': The Complete 1953-55 Recordings

Elvis Presley: 'A Boy From Tupelo': The Complete 1953-55 Recordings is a fantastic set! The Sun masters have never sounded better. You can really hear Elvis' rhythm playing on this set, and Bill Black's bass is more defined. Some of the live material sounds like it was recorded yesterday; however, there are a few tracks that are sub par because of the age of the source tape. But, it's still cool to own the stuff and necessary for Elvis fans, especially if you're like me and think his Sun material is tops. The three CDs are the products of 1,500 hours of restoration work and nearly 200 hours of additional studio time devoted to the remastering of the material. Of special interest is the inclusion of 'I Forgot To Remember To Forget', a newly discovered track from The Louisiana Hayride on October 29, 1955 and we have it here in fantastic sound quality ... transferred from the original 'wire-recorder'.

Elvis Presley, Leiber & Stoller and Jailhouse Rock

Jerry Leiber: I called and asked to speak to (Colonel) Tom. He got on the phone and said (Leiber imitates Parker) 'How you doin' boy?' I said, 'I'm OK. I had a real close call there. I had walking pneumonia and I just got out of the hospital.' He said he wanted me to pack right away and catch a plane. I told him I wasn't in any shape to catch a plane because I'd just gotten out of the hospital. He said, 'If they let you out, that means you're all right'. I told him I needed a day or two to get myself together, but he said the schedule was very tight and he needed me to come out right away.

Jack Lord's Special Memory of Elvis

Elvis Presley had the ability to touch others' lives as few human beings ever could. Just as people were magnetically drawn to him, so too, he had an almost fan-like devotion to those he admired. Among that group was Hawaii 5-0's Jack Lord and his wife, Marie.
