TCB Band | Jerome 'Stump' Munroe | (Drums)
Jerome was already a 'powerful' established and sought after drummer by the time he got his chance to work with The TCB Band. He was a session player within the Motown World and the regular drummer for 'The Sweet Inspirations' playing the warm up sessions before the starts of the show. Jerome filled in for Ronnie Tutt for three shows between December 1975 and June 1977. 'Stump' Munroe played with Elvis in Philadelphia in 1971, Las Vegas December 1975 and finally in Madison on June 24th 1977. He was the ideal choice as he knew Elvis' routine and was introduced on stage as 'Stump' by Elvis when it came to band introductions to the audience.
Jerome over the years made several appearances in various documentaries about Elvis Presley talking about his short time with Elvis. He has worked and played for Wilson Pickett, Martha Reeves And The Vandellas, Gladys Night And The Pips, Ricky Nelson.

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.
