Editorial Reviews

In this revealing program Elvis is given the opportunity to introduce the real man behind the on stage image. Through previously unseen and incredibly revealing footage and rare recordings we see a side to the king that only he could have known and only he could claim. Such as discussing his innermost concerns relating to his weight problems, aspects of his love life, and his thoughts regarding the entourage who slavishly catered to his every whim. As if this sensational material were not enough there is a collection of 18 tracks including the song he wrote for his mom I ll Never Stand In Your Way and Maybelline, both of which are rare recordings and never before seen on DVD. Add to the Elvis music the Elvis spoken word and you have the makings of placing this title in a league of its own as a collection of the most sought after information and recordings of this iconic figure ever compiled. You ll find the contents of this double DVD a revelation; and we can assure you this compelling and most informative of programs will provide a glimpse of an Elvis you knew, but also a version he wasn t allowed to show.

"18 tracks including the song he wrote for his mom I'll Never Stand In Your Way and Maybelline, both of which are rare recordings and never before seen on DVD"
When a resume starts out with nonsense like this, it should be clear the only purpose of the creators is to make money out of Elvis, without even a hint of trying to do him justice. Elvis has co-written a small number of songs, but "I'll never stand in your way" was absolutely not one of them. This song is written by the duo Heath and Rose, and Elvis recorded
it before rising to fame. After recording the famed single "My happiness", supposedly for his mother's birthday in 1953, Elvis recorded another acetate and it was on this Sun single that "I'll never stand in your way" was immortalized.

The song "Maybelline" indeed is a rarity of sorts, but only in respect of it being released on dvd. This song has never been recorded in a studio by Elvis, and he's only performed it live in the early days of his career, and on rare occasions during the seventies. Since there are no quality recordings of this song, let alone filmfootage, the advertisement of this song being on this dvd makes one wonder what the added value of this song is to the whole thing.

Elvis talking about his weight or about his friends, among other topics, are readily available on many cd's. Many of these excerpts are taken from radio-interviews, and from the very few interviews Elvis has given in the late 50's, early 60's and early 70's. A quick browse of the various videosites on the internet will provide the same content, so be smart and save the precious dollars for some real quality Elvisproduct.

Fred Rose and Hy Heath wrote "I'll Never Stand In Your Way". It was first recorded by Ernie Lee and then by Joni James in 1953. Elvis recoreded it on January 4, 1954, together with: "It Wouldn't Be The Same Without You" which had been written and recorded in 1950 by Stuart Hamblen.

The flip of "My Happiness" was "That's When Your Heartaches Begin". This was the record which Elvis claimed was for his Mother, NOT: "I'll Never Stand In Your Way".

Ever heard of "selective seeing?" Well I saw what I wanted to see. I misread the title looking for the last unreleased Elvis Movie on DVD, "Elvis On Tour." I ordered two copies and to my displeasure they arrived and I read it correctly, "Elvis On Elvis." The film Elvis On Tour is still unavailable. Trying to make the best of this error, I opened and watched this DVD which boasted of having unheard and unseen Elvis footage. Wrong! This program featured some silent Elvis live performances overdubbed with nonrelated Elvis songs. There was nothing I didn't have. In short, there's no reason to add this to your Elvis Collection. It's just another piece of product for someone to make a buck off Elvis. Save your money. I give it two stars out of five.

Being a crazed Elvis fan I have every Elvis movie, documentary, concert DVD, etc... Overall I was happy with this purchase, especially considering the cost. I was most impressed with the Elvis karate and home video footage. Always love to see old performances and good interviews. I give Elvis on Elvis a B+.

I was very dissapointed by this purchase. If you have any Elvis DVDs, you have already seen most of this.

This is not a review since I have not seen the Elvis On Elvis DVD yet. But I had to click on the rating to be able to send this comment. However, I want to clarify a statement made on the review given by Wijhe?, I believe. No, the song Maybelline was not recorded by Elvis in a studio but you can hear it quite clear on various CD's of his early shows, we are talking the 50's here. Many of the Louisiana Hayride songs were taped & are on CD's. He sang Maybelline & Tweedle Dee Dee quite often during those shows.
