The Memphis Years
In The Memphis Years, you'll see the shy young man who would emerge as the most celebrated performer the world has ever known. From his birth in a two-room shotgun shack and his days as a high school outcast to his emergence as the most powerful cultural force of the twentieth century, you'll get the complete story of Elvis Presley's formative years as well as his early days as the King of Rock 'n' Roll. You'll see rare interviews with those who knew him best, including high school friends BUZZY FORBES and GEORGE KLEIN, and his high school sweetheart DIXIE LOCKE-EMMONS who shares her remembrances here for the first time. The Memphis Years is a look back at the times and places in which Elvis Presley lived his life outside of the spotlight, in a city named after the ancient Egyptian metropolis where legend held that the gods themselves were born... MEMPHIS.


The Television Years
Witness Elvis' groundbreaking television appearances in the 1950s when e got the establishment all shook up with his "morally indecent" gyrations and raw rock sound. You'll hear funny and revealing reminiscences about Presley's impact on America from such notables as DICK CLARK, ED MCMAHON, KENNY ROGERS, AND THE DOORS' RAY MANZAREK, and extraordinary behind-the-scenes memories from Elvis' drummer D.J. FONTANA, who was right there with Presley for those controversial appearances on THE MILTON BERLE SHOW, THE STEVE ALLEN SHOW, and of course THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW, where Elvis was photographed from the waist up "so as not to offend." You'll also watch an amazing duet between the King of Rock 'n' Roll and the Chairman of the Board from a landmark 1960 FRANK SINATRA special welcoming Elvis home from the army.

Elvis Aaron Presley - The King of Rock'n'Roll

(January 8, 1935, Tupelo, MS – August 16, 1977, Memphis, TN) 
 
Elvis Presley (full name Elvis Aaron Presley) is the most outstanding personality in showbiz ever since, and the most popular entertainer the world has ever seen! His musical influence within music history and its following generations of musicians is still unbroken. His huge 'Blast-Off' in the mid-1950s, the rising star from a simply called 'Hillbilly Cat' (at Sun Records) to a lascivious Rock'n'Roll singer with charisma, a male sex symbol (then at RCA Victor) soon popularized him as "The King of Rock'n'Roll" or simply "The King".
 
His first cut within his tremendous career happened between October 1958 and March 1960 while Elvis was on duty with the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. It was there in 1959 when he met his later wife Priscilla Beaulieu at age 14. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967 in Las Vegas (divorce in 1973). Elvis evolved into an all-around entertainer after his Army service and started starring in Hollywood films. 33 movies in total, including the two concert documentaries 'That's The Way It Is' and 'On Tour'. He again shook the world with his 1968 NBC Comeback TV Special after his movie period without any stage appearances.
 
This TV special included the first ever unplugged session presented together with musicians from the early days such as Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. 1973 saw THE TV mega event at all: Elvis Presley, 'Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite'! Elvis' Honolulu appearance, the first time that a show was broadcasted worldwide via satellite! He was ahead of his time! Elvis Presley had 148 US single chart hits, including some so-called double-sider when A- and B-side both hit the charts like his 1956 smash 'Don't Be Cruel b/w Hound Dog', plus 15 EP hits between 1956 and 1977. Two billion of sold media and sound carriers by Elvis Presley is the estimated number! He received 14 Grammy nominations until 1978 and three Grammy for his Gospel interpretations. Elvis was the youngest artist when honored with the Bing Crosby Award (Lifetime Achivement Award) in 1971.
 
He is presented in 5 Halls of Fame (Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Blues and Gospel). Six of his song interpretations are collected in the Grammy Hall of Fame. On top of it all Elvis Presley got the most gold and platinum records and a Diamond-Award. He definetly is the 'Best selling solo artist in U.S. History' (RIAA – Record Industry Association of America)! Elvis Presley CD albums, vinyl records as LPs or singles at 45rpm - Bear Family offers a huge number of various Elvis Presley CDs, vinyl-LPs and 45rpm singles, vinyl- and CD box sets, books and mags, DVDs, unique and extraordinairy memorabilia!
