A video album of Elvis on stage and on screen, classics all

1. ‘I Was the One,’ Dorsey Brothers Show, 1956 (B side of ‘Heartbreak Hotel’)


2. ‘Heartbreak Hotel,’ 1956

3. ‘Love Me Tender’: Elvis’s premier of the song on The Ed Sullivan Show superimposed over and intercut with scenes from his movie debut.

4. ‘Teddy Bear,’ from Elvis’s second movie, Loving You


5. ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love with You,’ from the Blue Hawaii soundtrack (1961), performed here in the 1968 comeback special

7. ‘The Lady Loves Me,’ with a fetching Ann-Margret, heating up the swimming pool in Viva Las Vegas

8. ‘Today, Tomorrow and Forever,’ a beautiful ballad from Viva Las Vegas. Elvis knocks it out of the park, but this duet version with Ann-Margret was cut from the final version and supplanted by an Elvis solo take. Set to a montage of scenes from the film. Beautiful. Simply beautiful. How do you leave this on the cutting room floor?
