Elvis Presley | Elvis may move into Graceland Newspaper article | 1957
This is a newspaper article that was first published when Elvis bought Graceland in 1957.
Was there a 75-foot ballroom in Graceland? It was not technically a ballroom. The house included 75 feet of 'entertaining space' from the picture window in the dining room to the double doors in the music room. As for the fence and gates, they were both installed shortly after Elvis purchased Graceland. As for the rest of the initial improvements and additions to Graceland, the Presleys received an improvement fund loan from NBC for about $50,000 to renovate the house. To see the actual receipt from the improvements, be sure to visit the members only forum. Be sure to stay tuned for more artifacts and articles to celebrate both the 25th anniversary of Graceland being open to the public and the 50th anniversary of Elvis purchasing Graceland.

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.
