      A must have collectors set.

      I have many, many Elvis albums and other items as I am a huge fan of the man and his work, I have spent a small fortune over the years and some of it was spent on albums I rarely listen to and some of it was spent on albums and books I never tire of. A huge £82 pound of my total spend on Elvis items went on this book/CD set which is one of the ones I never tire of. This set documents Elvis`s tour across Texas and as well as the great stories from his band members and the awesome photos many of which are very rare, the 2 CD`s are crammed with great Elvis music. There are tracks such as "Polk salad Annie", "If you love me", "you gave me a mountain" and the evergreen "Jailhouse rock", as well as many, many more and as this is a FTD (specialist label) album, it also has a few outtakes and some alternate versions of some classic tracks so it is a good listen for fans and non fans alike. The book is probably of most interest to fans but it is a very good read and will probably be enjoyed by most people, especially people with an interest in music of this time. I would suggest that this is a must have for true fans and although non fans would probably not spend just short of £90 on this, they might enjoy it more than they think!

        Elvis is rockin'

        ROCKIN' ACROSS TEXAS is another of the expensive hardback book/CD combinations published by the specialist Elvis Presley record label FTD. This one would set you back over £50 if you bought it from Amazon UK but is worth every penny of that. The book documents Elvis' Texas tours in the 1950s and 1970s, with some rare photographs and previously untold stories about these performances. The level of detail in the book is amazing and there is definitely new material here for even the most fervent Elvis fan to find. This time there are 2 CDs which come with the book, the first one featuring a stonkingly good performance from 1974 (in Amarillo) where Elvis sang such songs as POLK SALAD ANNIE and WHY MR LORD, the second featuring an equally excellent performance from 1976 (in Fort Worth), with songs including IF YOU LOVE ME, YOU GAVE ME A MOUNTAIN, and one of my all-time favourites JAILHOUSE ROCK. These performances show Elvis in really good humour, which wasn't always true of his performances from this period, and so makes these a particularly enjoyable listen. Although not cheap this set is excellent value and is well recommended to any of Elvis' many fans.
