Elvis Presley and Jeannie C. Riley [Harper Valley PTA]
Jeannie C. Riley was a huge star because of this 1968 single Harper Valley PTA. This song became a gigantic hit and went to number one on both the Billboard Pop and Country charts in Sep-Oct 1968, a feat not repeated until 1981 when Dolly Parton released "9 to 5". It earned her the Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance and the Country Music Association's Single of the Year. Riley also became one of the very few country artists ever Grammy-nominated in major pop categories of 'Best New Artist' and 'Record of the Year'.

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.
