Elvis Presley | Receiving the Bing Crosby Award | August 28, 1971
In his dressing room Elvis receives a lifetime achievement award from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). There have only been five previous recipients of the award: Bing Crosby (for whom it has just been renamed), Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and Irving Berlin.
This is one of the few legitimate forms of recognition that Elvis gets from the recording industry during his lifetime - but it is a highly significant one. Photo below, NARAS reps, Bing Crosby's nephew, Chris with Elvis.

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.
