Storyline

Share the excitement of Elvis Presley's earthshattering introduction to the nation in these three unforgettable episodes from The Ed Sullivan Show, and experience for yourself why Elvis became the legendary King of Rock and Roll! Appearing on the show Sept. 9, 1956, Elvis sent shock waves through a repressed nation with his soulful singing, wild hip gyrations and raw energy, attracting a record-breaking TV audience of more than 60 million people. Presley returned on Oct. 28, 1956, continuing to provoke ecstatic screams with hits such as "Don't Be Cruel," "Love Me Tender" and "Hound Dog." In fact, these exhilarating performances were so explosive that Elvis was filmed above the waist during his final Sullivan show appearance on January 6, 1957.

Fantastic DVD box set
29 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This 3 DVD box set includes lots of extra material about Elvis' TV performances and other life, but most of all from beginning to the end, with commercial and others, those three Ed Sullivan Show episodes where Elvis Presley did perform.

These shows are remastered and they look prop ably better than they did 50 years ago. Also this is the first time that somebody can watch this episodes from the beginning to the end.

In USA this cost only about 18 dollars and in Europe about 35 euro, and it's totally worth of it's price.

10/10
