Editorial Reviews

On July 5th, 1954, Elvis Presley stepped into tiny Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and changed the world forever by recording the rockabilly standard "That's Alright, Mama." Elvis: A 50th. Anniversary Celebration is a rare tribute with stars such as Tom Jones, Pat Boone, Neil Sedaka, Glen Campbell, Kenny Rogers, ZZ Top, Suzi Quatro, Julio Iglesias, Scotty Moore, Tab Hunter, Cliff Richard, Joe Esposito and Buddy Holly's Crickets and many more reflecting on Elvis' extraordinary talent and enduring popularity after half a century. For the first time, many of Elvis' famous friends and fans open up about what the King was really like, and share their memories of time spent with this remarkable man. Plus you'll see rare, color footage of Elvis performing onstage and experience the historic first recording session at Sun Studios from the people who were there!

I pretty well figured this would be a documentary about Elvis considering he is in the title and on the cover. However most of the film is talking about Tom Jones. By the time you finish watching it you get the impression not only was Tom Jones a personal friend of Elvis, but if it wasn't for Tom, Elvis would never have taken up singing, the world would still be flat and he killed kirk robin. Stay away from this junk. The only saving grace of this is the fact there is some rare 8mm concert footage.

I agree with George from Carmel - The Gospel according to Tom Jones - there are many other DVD'S that contain similar material (without Tom Jones) and are better produced and include wonderful clips of Elvis. The Sam Phillip's interview is included in practically any documentary about Elvis.

Even though there isn't a whole lot of Elvis, it's interesting to hear from his friends and co-workers, like Scottie Moore and Sam Phillips about when Elvis recorded "That's Alright Mama" and other people who were influenced by Elvis or knew him. And Tom Jone's has interesting personal stuff to say about being Elvis friend. It's worth checking out even if you don't get to hear The King sing.
