Platinum, reached #56 on the 18th of August 1997, and spent 11 weeks in the top 200. It made #39 in the State of  South Australia, spending 12 weeks on the state chart. Platinum - A Life on Music has been very successful in Australia, and was released on the official world release date, with BMG importing several thousand copy's in advance. A job well done by BMG. The same can be said for the Masters Box Sets.

Presley -  All Time Greatest Hits

Presley -  All Time Greatest Hits, well what do you know, here it is again in 1997, spending another six weeks in the Charts. I don't have the full details of this run, except that it reached at least #34. I wasn't looking at the Charts at the time, probably because there were no new releases. This Incursion into the Top 50 would have been because of it's very low price of $14.95 (It originally Charted at the Recomended Retail Price of $34.95) The Album had now spent a total of  36 weeks in the top 50 on the Australian Charts. Top 200 not known at this stage. This double Album now has a 4x Platinum Rating in Australia with sales exceeding 350,000.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD Video with Sound.

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.
