March 29 - Spanish Eyes By Request

The Gravelroad Music import label announced the release of the CD "Spanish Eyes By Request, Elvis live at the Sahara Tahoe in May 1974". The original tape, from the Friday, May 24, 1974 MS, was the very first available soundboard recording from Lake Tahoe, released in 1995 by Fort Baxter. At this show Elvis was heard taking a personal request for "Spanish Eyes," not something he did too often.

From the press-release:

Now the performance is presented by GRM at the correct speed, with improved sound and in a super-deluxe package. Along with a booklet filled with Tahoe '74 facts, photos and detailed liner notes, there is also a reproduction of the rare May 1974 Sahara Tahoe reservation postcard with the color photo of Elvis on back, and another menu-sized, "Your Personal Invitation" card with the invite on the flip-side. Both of these collectables are very hard to find, and suitable for framing.

For new fans the show will be a thrill and for longtime fans, an absolute rediscovery. This show captures Elvis being happy and giving his best.

Rockwell Vinyl

The U.K. based Rockwell Records deleted the yellow vinyl edition of "All Shook Up" and the green vinyl edition of "I Was The One" just prior to their release. A few copies survived for the producers. Black vinyl editions of "All Shook Up", "I Was The One", "Any Way You Want Me" and "Soldier Boy". The latter was also released as a "lime mix" vinyl edition, limited to just 150 copies worldwide.

March 25 - A Flaming Star At Pearl Harbor

Flaming Star #64

The Norwegian Flaming Star fan-club announced volume 64 of their self-titled magazine. The magazine was shipped April 5th.

The Very Best Of

Since 1828 the German Reclam Publishing House has published classics in world literature as pocket books. The yellow cover is typical of the series.

For the first time ever Reclam now releases music CDs with classics from rock and roll, folk, jazz and country music. This happens in cooperation with the Sony Legacy Club (Germany). The series is known as the Reclam Music Edition.

Reclam starts up with great stars like Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Santana and Simon & Garfunkel. With the CDs you get a 16 page booklet with biographies, discography, time line, photos and tracklistings. The tracklisting is the same as on ELV1S 30  #1 Hits. The series will be expanded.

50 Years Ago: The Pearl Harbor Benefit Concert

Fifty years ago today, Elvis Presley helped raise money and directed much-needed attention to the stalled efforts to build the USS Arizona Memorial. The King is now being remembered for his contributions as the historic sites at Pearl Harbor enter a new era. Pacific Historic Parks, in partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc., stared selling T-shirts to commemorate the historic benefit concert at Pearl Harbor's Bloch Arena on March 25, 1961. Proceeds will support the educational programs at the USS Arizona Memorial and the new $56 million Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.

"For us, recognizing this benefit concert is a way of making the public aware of the cultural history of the memorial," said Daniel Martinez, Pearl Harbor historian for the National Park Service's World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument.

Congress in the late 1950s authorized the construction of the memorial to honor the crewmembers entombed when the USS Arizona was sunk during an aerial attack by the Japanese that plunged the United States into World War II. The Pacific War Memorial Commission was tasked with raising $500,000 to build the USS Arizona Memorial.

Ralph Edwards, host of the hit TV series, "This is Your Life," kicked off the public fundraising efforts on his Dec. 3, 1958 show when he featured Arizona crewmember and Medal of Honor recipient Samuel Fuqua. More than $95,000 was raised. But contributions and attention dwindled over the next couple years, with less than half of the $500,000 raised. Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, read about the stalled efforts in the Los Angeles Examiner.

Presley, who was already scheduled to be in the islands to film "Blue Hawaii," agreed to help by performing a benefit concert. It was his last live stage performance for more than eight years.

"Both of these celebrities, one that kicked it off and one that came to its aid two years later, are important," Martinez said. "I think this is the beginning of the influence of celebrities in national campaigns of fundraising in our country. ... It wasn't just a concert. It was an event that had national attention and media coverage."

On March 25, 1961, the 26-year-old Elvis Presley took the stage to an arena packed with 4,000 frenzied, screaming fans who paid anywhere from $3 to $100 a ticket. He performed 15 songs that night, including "Heartbreak Hotel," "All Shook Up," "I Got A Woman," "I Need Your Love Tonight," "Don't Be Cruel," "Are You Lonesome Tonight," and "Swing Down Sweet Chariot." He ended the show with a rousing performance of "Hound Dog," which included a slide across the stage on his knees. 

The concert raised about $54,000, and public and private donations poured in following the show, which received heavy publicity across the country. Hawaii's then-freshman Sen. Daniel Inouye, who today is the most senior member of the Senate, helped secure the final $150,000 to complete the construction during the fall.

"Mr. Presley's role is significant because it brought renewed interest in finishing the memorial and undoubtedly had an influence on the citizens of the United States and our government," Martinez said. 

The USS Arizona Memorial was dedicated the following year on Memorial Day — May 30, 1962. The gleaming, white, open-air structure straddles the Arizona's sunken hull, where 1,177 lives were lost. In all, some 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers were killed in the attack on Dec. 7, 1941.

"This is one of many examples we have of Elvis' desire to use his talent to help and honor others," Jack Soden, president and CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises said in a statement. "Especially considering his own military service, we're certain this one was especially significant to Elvis."

Complete 59 And 60 Master Sessions

The Complete 59 - 60 Sessions

The Chrome Dreams budget label released the 2CD-set "The Complete 59 - 60 Sessions" combining Elvis' singles (A & B sides) and album releases 
from the period, including Elvis' performances on the TV show with Frank Sinatra. 

The Patriot

Darrin Lee announced the new book “Elvis Presley – The Patriot: A Man’s Love Of God And Country. The Summit ‘76: A Triumph Of The Human Spirit”.

Press release

Elvis Presley – The Patriot: A Man’s Love Of God And Country. The Summit ‘76: A Triumph Of The Human Spirit is a 200 page, A5 format soft cover featuring the stunning artwork of Night Rider Designs, beautiful photographs of Bob Heis, and world class photographer Manuel Chavez’s never-before-published shot of Elvis flipping the “f” you middle finger to a heckler at the Summit on 28th August 1976. “The Little Girl With The Beautiful High Voice” joins Rosemary Alden, Sandi Miller and Joseph Tunzi as prominent contributors to this project dedicated to Lisa Marie Presley, the non-conforming, truth-seeking rebel.

The Patriot opens with “The Man In Black, The Memphis Flash & Hollywood Hokum (Walk The Line)” and “Academia & The Media Try, But Fail, To Paint A Patriot As A Pillhead” – 10 pages dedicated to Elvis’ historic meeting with President Richard Nixon. But it’s Chapter 3 that will leave many readers in a state of shock. Numbering 20 pages and entitled “The Hycodan Overdose: Thank God For Blonde Miracles… Enter Sandi Miller,” it thoroughly debunks one of the most damaging drug-based allegations (he furnished prescription-strength cough syrup to a sweet, innocent teenager from San Francisco resulting in her overdose in his Palm Springs bed and emergency hospitalization) lodged against Elvis Presley.

More than five of this chapter’s 20 powerful pages are devoted to Elvis: What Happened?, with two subsections written specifically as useful knowledge for Lisa Marie Presley: “ ‘Disposable’ People In EP’s Life? Providing A Deeper Understanding For LMP And Oprah Winfrey” and “EP To Whom It May Concern: ‘I am not fucked up. I’ve got a daughter and I’ve got a life.’ ” A lot of good folks admire Kathy Westmoreland and recognize her importance to Elvis, not only in his personal life, but on stage and in the studio. On 20th March 2011, Kathy spoke with the author about this forthcoming project and also revealed the biggest heartbreak Elvis suffered in the 70’s.

March 14 - Matinee Majesty Live Album

The British New Musical Express magazine (NME) listed Elvis Presley's "Aloha From Hawaii" concert in it's top 50 live gig list, at #30, beating U2, Queen and Tom Waits. 

The comment of the NME editors

Why it's so good: This gig was broadcast live via satellite, and was the most watched broadcast by an entertainer in TV history, airing in more than 40 countries. At the time, the event was also the priciest entertainment TV special, costing $2.5 million.

The top 5:
01 - Thin Lizzy - 'Live And Dangerous'
02 - Neil Young & Crazy Horse - 'Live Rust'
03 - The Who - 'Live At Leeds'
04 - Radiohead - 'I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings'
05 - Johnny Cash - 'At Folsom Prison'

30 - Elvis Presley - 'Aloha From Hawaii' Recorded: Honolulu, 1973

Matinee Majesty

The Straight Arrow Import label announced the release of the CD "Matinee Majesty" containing an audience recording of June 26th, 1976 afternoon show from Providence, RI.

The Press-release:

Straight Arrow will release a new CD called "Matinee Majesty" (SA 2011-19-02). It will feature Elvis' full June 26th, 1976 afternoon show from Providence, RI.
Unlike many other concert recordings from 1976, this one is quite enjoyable. It was Elvis' 2nd show of the tour and he was still full of energy and in fine voice. Most of songs are performed well, including the oldies. The highlights, however, are ballads like "And I Love You So", "Love Letters", a double dose of "Hurt" and a majestic performance of the 2nd national anthem, "America The Beautiful".
The fidelity and clarity of this STEREO audience recording is excellent. We believe that you will be pleasantly surprised with such a topnotch recording of a very upbeat performance from what is generally known as a troubled year for our man. As you've come to expect from Straight Arrow, the producers managed to get the best possible source - an original tape was obtained from a person who WAS THERE. This recording was completely restored and the sound was enhanced for the best possible listening pleasure.
The CD package is completed with a 16-page booklet, including a collection of photos from the Providence matinee show and a very positive press review of the show.

"Matinee Majesty" will be released in March, 2011. Don't miss your chance to obtain another cool show from The King. It is a magical prequel of another Providence concert, the one from May 23, 1977, released by Straight Arrow just a few weeks ago!

March 09 - Absolutely Elvis, But A Little Less Of It

The Music Digital label announced the release of the CD-set "Absolutely Elvis" with April 25, 2011 as the release-date.

Graceland Redevelopment Plans Scaled Back

The owner of Elvis Presley Enterprises said it is scaling back plans to redevelop the Graceland attraction due to a difficult economic climate. CKx Inc. said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that expanding the visitors center and adding new attractions, shops, and a new hotel adjacent to Elvis' former home would take several years and substantial financial investment.

The filing also said expenses for operating the Memphis tourist attraction rose last year due to higher professional and legal fees that were primarily related to a 2010 master plan that has been postponed.

The company is exploring opportunities to build a new Heartbreak Hotel with a business partner, CKx CEO Michael G. Ferrel told The Associated Press. But the other previously studied parts of the redevelopment would happen only in "incremental steps," depending on the economy, he said.

"We ran straight into a headwind for what this project was supposed to be," Ferrel said. "It's going to be done on a different timetable than we first anticipated for reasons beyond our control."

CKx has been studying ways to redevelop Graceland and the surrounding area for years, with the possibility of breaking ground in 2011 or 2012. Ferrel told AP in August that tough economic conditions over the past two years, including a dearth of financing for construction and a drop in consumer spending, had delayed the study looking at improvements.

Elvis lived at Graceland for 20 years before he died in August 1977. The home has been open for public tours since 1982. Jack Soden, president CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises, said the visitors complex development is on a slower track, but the company is still committed to investing in the long-term growth of Graceland.

"It's designing and developing with a sharper pencil, and that's the new economy," Soden said. Last year, 518,940 people visited Graceland, a 4.4 percent drop from 542,728 in 2009.

March 08 - Big Boots On Fire

Leaving Jackson On Fire 

The Venus Productions import label announced the release of their third book / CD set containing a soundboard recording of June 9, 1975 evening from Jackson , MS. This show was already released 15 years ago under the title '' Cut 'Em Down To Size ''. The set includes many color photographs and liner notes spread over 80 pages.

Tracks 1 & 2 : June 10, 1975
Track 3 : June 10, 1975 with ending spliced from June 9, 1975.

Big Boots Remix
The Italian DJ Spankox did not seem to be impressed by the law-suit he lost from EPE in the U.K. Despite ongoing problems with Elvis Presley Enterprises, he has just released his latest Elvis remix on iTunes. This time he remixed 'Big Boots' from "G.I. Blues". He also announced a new remix album containing 12 new remixes. Before the album release in May 2011 two more singles will be released in a digital format. 

The official press release

"New milestone for Elvis Presley, 34 years after his premature departure: the new Elvis Presley “Re:Volution” album including 12 never released before newly remixed tracks sung by the King of Rock’n’Roll will be released in May 2011.

The first single, a stunning and amazing new version of “Big Boots” that seems to be sent directly by Elvis from Heaven to his fans, will be released on iTunes on March 9, 2011. The song, an instantly catchy and radio-friendly tune that works very well on the dancefloor, can be already heard on iTunes and on YouTube. It is already generating rave reviews because of the exceptional clarity of the voice of the King (it really seems it’s a contemporary recording) and the top quality of the production and of the new musical arrangement.

Produced by Agostino “Ago” Carollo Spankox, the composer/DJ/producer who also produced the Elvis Presley “Re:Versions”, “Re:Mixes”, “Christmas Remixes” and the n. 1 2008 Presley’s official hit single “Baby Let’s Play House”, the album “Re:Volution” has been made using innovative and groundbreaking techniques (as Elvis would have done) but respecting the essence of Elvis music; it is truly “Elvis as you’ve never heard him before” and it is destined to capture and excite old and new Presley’s fans. Two other singles will be released digitally before the release of the album which is slated for May 2011. 

Agostino “Ago” Carollo Spankox has a long string of hits under his belt and is currently riding very high in the Billboard USA charts with his own original track Ago “So True” that is currently #11 in the Billboard Top 100 Dance Radio Airplay Chart."
