June 24, 2011

The ultimate DVD collection celebrating the life of Elvis Presley returns to the marketplace this summer, boasting over 2 hours of remastered video, new packaging, and never-before-seen interviews with legendary artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

The two-disc "Elvis: The Great Performances" brings together classic performances spanning more than 20 years, from Elvis' first televised appearance that shocked a nation to a concert a few weeks before his death on August 16, 1977. Footage mined from TV shows and specials, films and home movies, captures Elvis’ mesmerizing stage presence and irresistible charisma. Of particular interest to Elvis fans are the previously un-released bonus interviews, conducted by producer-director Andrew Solt. Included are rock icons Lewis and Perkins, Sun Records head Sam Phillips, drummer D.J. Fontana, guitarist Scotty Moore, Jordanaires member and backing singer Gordon Stoker, and television host Milton Berle. The bonus material adds more than 30 minutes to the original two-hour production. Also, Jerry Schilling, long-time friend of Elvis, was instrumental in producing and overseeing the set.
