CAN ELVIS RISE AGAIN? HIGHLIGHTS!
"2021 will probably be the biggest year in the history of Elvis Presley"
Elvis Presley may have died 43 years ago, but on a recent morning in midtown New York, plans are underway to resurrect him. In a conference room
in the offices of Authentic Brands Group, the firm in charge of licensing and marketing Presley, executives are discussing the many projects they’ve
been working on since taking over the estate in 2013.

There’s an Elvis filter on Snapchat, which gives you his face, pompadour, and bedazzled jacket. There’s a plan to release a video of Elvis and all of
his beloved animals on the Dodo, a popular pet site (you will also be able to buy CBD-infused Hound Dog treats).

There are film and TV projects, including Agent King, an offbeat animated series coming to Netflix next year. Co-created by Priscilla Presley, the show
will aim for a BoJack Horseman feel, where a cartoon Elvis goes undercover as a crime-busting government spy.

These plans are all part of a major effort to make Presley cool again. More than 60 years after his first momentous sessions at Sun Records, his
empire is in need of a reboot.

According to The Guardian, a 2017 U.K. poll found that nearly 30 percent of respondents ages 18 to 24 had never heard one of Presley’s songs.

Given that Presley was one of the first rock stars, the campaign to bring him back amounts to what one music executive calls a “canary in the coal
mine” for the legacy of rock & roll. Can it possibly work — and what does it mean for the future careers and earnings of artists like the Beatles, the
Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan, who followed Presley and who are now increasingly distant legends for those who grew up listening to hip-hop, pop,
and EDM?

There are reasons for concern. Jeff Jampol, who represents the estates of Janis Joplin and the Ramones and also works with the surviving members
and estates of the Doors, recalls a recent dinner with friends in their thirties and forties. “I said, ‘I’m going to the restroom now, and when I come back,
I want the title of three Beatle songs, and you can’t use your phones,’” he recalls. Upon his return, they told him they’d come up with one: “Daydream
Believer,” a hit by … the Monkees. “That’s where we are with the Beatles,” Jampol sighs. “Imagine where we are for anybody else. And that’s the
reality.”

For Team Presley’s branding push, one possible path forward is the most aggressive approach in decades to the King of Rock and Roll. “Brands die
as they get older, and the reason brands die as they get older is because the older generation goes away,” says Salter, whose company also
represents Marilyn Monroe and Muhammad Ali. “If you don’t push those brands to the younger generation at all times, eventually you age yourself
out. And that’s what was going on with Elvis.”

With Presley, one solution is to go younger, starting with the animated Agent King. “Our first reaction was, ‘This is crazy,’” admits ABG exec Marc
Rosen. “But we want to take chances; we want to take risks.” Salter adds they were partly convinced by a younger employee at the firm: “He said,
‘People are gravitating to emojis and all these different characters. And I think it would help bring Elvis back as a younger artist.’”

Elvis’ team is also making headway in the streaming world. Helped by the use of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” in Crazy Rich Asians, his songs were
streamed a respectable 544 million times last year, ranking him in the top 200 most-streamed artists of 2019 — well ahead of a bands like Guns N’
Roses.

To appeal to Gen Z, ABG is interested in commissioning more dance remixes like Junkie XL’s 2002 hit version of “A Little Less Conversation.” “We feel
strongly that will help us with that generation,” says Salter. “They’re not growing up with rock.”

The estate is also considering subtler strategies. There’s talk of downplaying Elvis’ age during birthday celebrations (his 85th happened in January,
with tickets as high as $875, which included a Graceland tour guided by Priscilla). “When we get to his centennial, that’ll feel like he’s old,” says John
Jackson, the Sony Music VP who oversees Presley’s back catalog. “How much more emphasis do you want to put on that?” As part of the plan, you’re
more likely to see photos of the younger Elvis, not the jumpsuit-era King.

Team Elvis is also planning to de-emphasize Presley’s connection to rock. “He’s the guy who was 18 and straight out of a not-great high school, trying
to make something of himself,” says Jackson. “That’s all that Drake and Justin Bieber wanted. You don’t present him as a rocker. You present him as
this iconic American story.”

In an office at Sony, work is underway on a box set documenting the 50th anniversary of three intense days of 1970 Presley sessions, and the label is  
also in the midst of supplying master tapes for Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic. “There’s been no more beautiful of a human being than that, right there,” says
John Jackson, the Sony Music VP who oversees Presley’s back catalog, pointing to a box set with a photo of peak Fifties Presley on its cover. “It
needs to remind people that, ‘Look, that guy existed once.’ ”

“You don’t present him as a rocker. You present him as this iconic American story.”

IS NEW RECORD STORE DAY RELEASE REALLY WHAT IT SAYS? AND HOW MANY COLOURS?
Last year (Oct), the 'Memphis Mansion' released it's first Elvis title on it's own label titled 'Elvis: The Danish Singles Collection Vol. 1 (MMLP001-112019).

2 months later, the label released Volume 2 in the collection and just released is it's 3rd title, a 10" album 'Elvis At The Hayride'.

The Memphis Mansion has just announced it's first release for "Record Store Day", a re-release of it's first title, 'The Danish Singles Collection Vol. 1',
this time as a picture disc and limited to 100 copies.

BUT, is this actually a "Record Store Day" release?

It's all in the wording! You see, the Memphis Mansion advertise that the album will be "Released ON RSD", not advertised as a Record Store Day
release, the album will only be available from the Memphis Mansion and Highway 51 Diners in Randers and Aarhus,.Denmark, it looks as though this
will be another public domain Elvis release using the hype of the popular Worldwide record collectors day to attract interest, a tactic previously carried
out by the 'Memphis Recording Service' and others but something we're not keen on record labels doing.

The Memphis Mansion are also planning to produce a re-issue the only Danish made EP, “Rockin’ Presley”. Which we learn will be disappointingly
released on five, yep, FIVE....5 different colour vinyls direct out of the let's take the piss and try to milk those fans book of Rockwell Records. But you
can forget it if you want to buy one for your collection, you see, the EP will are only available as a set of ALL 5 COLOURS.

The limited edition picture disc edition of 'The Danish Singles Collection Vol. 1' will be released on April 18th 2020.

MORE RECORD STORE DAY TITLES FROM FRANCE
2020 is another year that the French Elvis My Happiness club will be releasing a couple of RSD releases.

They've released a few stand out albums over the years and for the first RSD of the year they are releasing 2 vinyl titles.

First up is a great cover for
'THE FORGOTTEN ALBUM'
While Elvis Presley's debut album topped the charts in the U.S.the French still favoured the 45 RPM format.

That "Forgotten Album" will be released on Record Store Day (April 18, 2020) as a limited edition of 1000 copies pressed as multi-coloured vinyl in
red, white, blue, yellow and orange. The edition of this new album, unfortunately abandoned at the time, fills this void, accompanied by an explanatory
booklet with photos and documents.

Then it's a double vinyl album,
'ELVIS PROHIBITED'
This double album focuses on Elvis' first movies. So, why the title 'Elvis Prohibited'?  Well, when originally released in France the movie "Jailhouse
Rock" was banned, the French media presented Elvis as the Devil.

The movie finally got a French release seven years later (1964), and the movie poster featured scenes from the film, plus a much more current image
of Elvis as seen in the MGM movie, 'It Happened At The Worlds Fair' (see images above).

This RSD album is also a limited edition double vinyl of 1000 copies and includes all the movie masters and alternate recordings from the Kings
movies of the 1950's. The press release from the label boasts that itncluding a "superb vocal solo on "Baby I Don't Care", which we assume is the
recording first released by the FTD label on it's 2nd ever release, 'Out In Hollywood' back in 1999.

This double LP will be pressed on red and yellow splattered vinyl, containing what they say are "the best songs of Elvis Presley’s first three movies".
Or should that be "Elvis Presley's 2nd, 3rd & 4th movies"?

Just last year (2019), the 'Memphis Recording Service' released a limited edition double vinyl entitled 'The Complete 50s Movie Masters & Alternate
Recordings' featuring all the masters from Elvis' first 4 movies along with outtakes.
A BLAST FROM THE PAST ON ELVIS EXPRESS RADIO
Due to a situation beyond our control, this week, Elvis Express Radio bring you "A Blast From The Past" with a journey back to 2009 when we
presented listeners the 1997 RCA album,
'Blue Suede Shoes - A Ballet Set To The Music of Elvis Presley'.

We hope that Elvis Express Radio will be back with an all new 3 hour show next week. But for now, sit back and enjoy some of the very best of Elvis
Presley including some new instrumentation added to some of the Kings classic songs only available on this RCA album, now deleted and hard to get
hold of.

PARAMOUNT PRESENTS...ELVIS IN 'KING CREOLE'
While some studios have their fingers crossed that physical media will eventually die out, Paramount is going in the opposite direction with Paramount
Presents.

The new label plans to highlight films from Paramount’s library with specialty Blu-ray releases of remastered films and limited runs of classic titles in
select theaters.

And we now know the first three titles in the lineup:
'Fatal Attraction', Adrian Lyne’s 1987 thriller starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, Alfred
Hitchcock’s 1955
'To Catch a Thief', with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. and what is considered to be Elvis Presley's greatest movie performance in the
1958 classic,
'KING CREOLE'.

This could be exciting news because it means that Paramount could use this new label to put out the other Elvis movie titles that currently have no Blu-
ray release like, 'G.I. Blues', 'Blue Hawaii', 'Girls! Girls! Girls!', 'Fun In Acapulco', 'Fun In Acapulco', 'Roustabout', 'Paradise, Hawaiian Style' and 'Easy
Come, Easy Go'.

The first three titles in Paramount’s new Paramount Presents Blu-ray line will hit the shelves on April 21st
OH BABY! BABY! BABY! BABY! BABY!
Here's a picture sent into us by one of our regular listeners who asked, "What do you think? Have you seen this before?"

It was posted on Twitter by "queen_priscillapresley" who wrote, "Rare photo of baby Elvis at his home in Tupelo in 1935" .... So is it?

We've got the World famous photo of Elvis aged 2 in his hat, but this "New" photo has popped out of nowhere and while looking around, we've even
found some are saying that the baby photo was posted by Priscilla? Now then, I may not be the biggest Priscilla fan but I'm pretty sure that she doesn't
call herself "Queen Priscilla Presley" on Twitter.

YES! It's a Baby!
YES! The Baby looks to be on a porch swing or bench!
YES! The photo is black and white!
NO! We're 99.99999% certain that the Baby in this "newly discovered" photo is NOT ELVIS PRESLEY in 1935.

ST. ELVIS AND THE MIRACLE OF THE ROSARY
Elvis Presley had a keen, if eclectic, interest in religion.

Elvis Presley visited Great Britain only once.

He had been demobilized from the army and was en route back to the United States from Germany. The plane on which he traveled made a
scheduled stop for refueling at Prestwick Airport in Scotland. The then-Sergeant Presley left the plane briefly, whereupon he was met by some of his
Scottish fans.

Soon his plane was in the air again. Presley would never return to Britain.

The date of this stopover was March 3, 1960. This was just two days after the feast of St. David. St. David is, of course, the patron saint of Wales.
What is less well-known is that the man who baptized David was St. Elvis..

TOM JONES HEARTBREAKING TRIBUTE TO ELVIS REVEALED!
Elvis and Tom Jones had a well-documented friendship through their careers, and now a truly poignant tribute from Sir Tom after the King's death may
have been revealed.


Sir Tom Jones is an iconic singer in his own right, but for fans of the King of rock and roll Elvis Presley, many are even more excited with hearing the
Sex Bomb hitmaker’s memories of him. Diving into The Voice coach’s back catalogue, one song stands out as being a particularly poignant tribute to
his old friend after his death. The interesting thing to note is on the very same album, Sir Tom recorded another track called
Elvis Presley Blues.

The lyrics are a heartfelt and sombre catharsis to the singer’s old friend, as the star delivered notes about him being just “a country boy that combed
his hair”.

Sir Tom crooned about how he was “thinking that night about Elvis”, and the “day that he died”, and it’s a wonderful tribute to the man who shot to the
height of fame in the 1950s and 60s.

The song was actually originally written by Gillian Welch, but it shows just how close Sir Tom and Elvis were over the years, and the impact the rock
and roll star had on him.

And another song on the same album
Long Lost Suitcase, which was recorded in 2015, was “He was a friend of mine”.

Is this also secretly a tribute to the King, or is it just a coincidence?

The lyrics read: “He was a friend of mine, He was a friend of mine. Every time I think about him now, I just can't keep from crying, ‘Cause he was a
friend of mine.

“He was a friend of mine, He was a friend of mine. Never had no money, To pay for his fine, He was a friend of mine.

“He never done no wrong, He never done no wrong, He was just a poor boy, A long way from home.

Sir Tom has regularly spoken about his memories of Elvis over the years, one interview in particular revealing a story of him and his friend in a Las
Vegas bathroom.

Talking to US chat show host Conan O’Brien, Sir Tom recalled the bizarre moment he had with Elvis following a concert in sin city.
Elvis was in the middle of his late 1960s comeback tour, and regularly performed in Las Vegas.

“He was at the Hilton in Las Vegas and I was at Caesars Palace and he used to stay on,” Sir Tom said in 2015. “As we used to do a month and we
used to overlap.

“So after he finished his month he would stay to watch me and he would come to the show most nights.

“This one time he had this song somebody had tried to pitch to him,” the star went on. “So he was in the wings and when I came off the stage he was
like, ‘Oh I’ve got this song man,’ and I was like, ‘I’ve got to jump into the shower.’ I went into the shower and I was washing my hair and I hear…”

Sir Tom began to shake his hand, mimicking Elvis, and began singing in an impression of his friend.

“I’m thinking, ‘I’m hearing Elvis Presley in the shower now - I’m going nuts here!’” the star carried on. “So when I got the soap out of my eyes, he was
over the shower door - he was right there, and I said ‘Elvis, I’ll be right there!’”

The chat show host was already in hysterics, but Sir Tom added: “I got out of the shower and I saw he’d been to the toilet in my bathroom while I was
in the shower. He was wearing a North Beach leather outfit - a lot of us used to - and they weren’t lined, they were just natural leather. So he was
standing there, cleaning up and looking in the mirror. So I’m naked and he’s half naked.”

“His pants are down round his ankles. So he’s standing there, singing this song to me. I’m trying to towel down and I said, ‘You know, Elvis, your
pants.’ And he went, ‘Red!’ because he had a bodyguard called Red.

“So Red busts through the door thinking there’s something wrong… but Elvis says, ‘My pants, man.’”

However, Sir Tom explained he had to pull up Elvis’ trousers due to the tight leather, not just because he was “too celebrity” to pull up his own.
THE ICONIC MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET ACTUALLY HAD 5 PEOPLE IN IT!
WE SAY WHAT A CROCK OF BULL
The following article was published by 'Country Music Nation' back in 2018 and was written by Jennifer Reiko, a staff writer at the CMN. It's hard to
imagine how anyone could realistically fall for the claims regarding this particular photo, but what's even more surprising is that the claim originates
from the son of Johnny Cash
-------------------------------------
You’ve all seen the photo.

An impromptu jam session between Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash was photographed, as well as recorded, in 1956
and the rest, they say, is history. What if we told you that isn’t the whole story?

Let’s start from the beginning.
Perkins was in the Sun Records studio on December 4, 1956  to record new music, while an unknown Jerry Lee Lewis was brought in by Sun Records
owner Sam Phillips to play piano for Perkins’ session. Cash, a Sun Records artist, had stopped by to watch the session and Presley, the most famous
of the bunch, had stopped by to visit his former record label.

Somehow, for some reason, the four of them began jamming, and now it’s known as one of the most famous moments in rock and roll. The photo of
the jam session is now iconic, but little did we know, there’s something missing from the one that is widely circulated.

There was a fifth person in the photo.
Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, shared the original photo on his Facebook page, explaining that the fifth person is usually cropped out – but he’s
actually a very important person.

“For some reason, the person to the far left is typically cropped out of the photo. This man was at the time Carl Perkins’ drummer. WS “Fluke” Holland
went on, beginning a few years later, to become Johnny Cash‘s drummer until the end of Johnny’s working career,” he wrote accompanying the photo.

Actually there are two different photos of the Million Dollar Quartet that circulate and they both have five people in it. One has WS Holland, and the
other includes Marilyn Evans, Presley’s girlfriend at the time, sitting on the piano. Both people are often cropped out of the iconic photos.

We’re glad John Carter Cash shared this rare piece of history for us to enjoy!
-------------------------------------

Sorry, but John Carter Cash has not shared anything close to a piece of history. He has peddled a piece of fabricated trash in a poor attempt to
rewrite a part of music history.
THE DANISH SINGLES COLLECTION VOL. 2 ON PICTURE DISC

and we assume limited to 100 copies also?
