Wall Street Journal Looks at "When Elvis Played New York"

November 12, 2012


Elvis fans can enjoy more rare footage of Elvis' 1972 live performances at the Madison Square Garden at the WSJ.com. Writer Marc Myers looks at Elvis' history performing in New York and talks with the king's musical director Joe Guercio.

"When Elvis began to walk out on stage, he was nervous. As he passed me, he gave me one of those million-dollar glances that said, 'Let's do it.' Then a shower of camera flashbulbs went off, the crowd loved him, and he was at ease," said Guercio.

Elvis opened the show with "That's All Right" in his famous blue-capped jumpsuit. This performance along with color video of his 20-minute press conference at the New York Hilton and unreleased concert footage filmed by a fan are all a part of "Prince From Another Planet: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition."
