Photos of Graceland by Scott Jenkins
Music room ... Elvis' favourite room, his body lay in state here in August 1977.
Graceland's kitchen was manned 24/7 when the King was in residence.
TV room ... Elvis would watch football and news on three televisions at once.
Pool room ... this room evokes the style of a 1920's American billiard hall.
Costumed King ... some of Elvis' elaborate stage costumes on display in the Trophy Room.
Elvis won three Grammy Awards for, surprisingly, his gospel music.
Rear view ... Graceland, much smaller than most people expect, as seen from the rear.
Traveller ... the Lisa Marie, named for his daughter, was used during his last two years.
Solemn ... the final stop on the Graceland tour, the graves of Elvis and his family. Elvis is buried between his father and grandmother in Graceland's back yard.
Reflective ... Meditation Gardens, Elvis' final burial place in Graceland's back yard.
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.
