Elvis Presley: Sold Out! The Rex Martin 8mm Collection Vol.8 (2-DVD)

(Pyramid Records) PAL, Code 0, Running Time: approx. 2:40 hrs.

The frontcover on ‘Sold Out volume 8’ really says it all: this is a man who loves what he is doing. More than anything, Elvis was a live performer. He did his finest work in front of audiences. The fans loved him, and he knew it. Elvis needed to feel that love in order to create, especially in his later years.

That’s why ‘Sold Out’ is such an essential DVD series. If future historians want to get to the core of Elvis Presley on stage in the seventies, then these releases are actually not a bad place to start, as they really capture the nitty gritty of the concert years. In the restorations done for these releases, our focus is on therefore preserving what was originally captured by the filmers. We work with high resolution transfers of their 8mm films, and we try to present these in the best way possible without compromising the authenticity of these films. So no watermarks, no fake stereo effects, no artificially brightening up the colors… what you get from us is an honest quality product, and something that is lasting.

‘Sold Out’ volume 8 brings you almost three hours of unreleased concert film, including plenty of clips from 1970 – 1972, when he was performing at his peak and every show was a knockout. The great tours are represented well: November ’71, April ’72, March ’74… and much, much more. This is another deep dive into the collector vaults, and even though each release is a true ‘escape’, it’s a real pleasure to be able to bring you this rare footage. Keep supporting us and we will release out some genuine surprises that will make your heads spin!

It’s always an honor for us to get the approval from those who actually worked with the man, and to hear from them that they are enjoying the series, and that watching the footage brings back a lot of memories.  We are thrilled with the fact that Mr. JIM MURRAY of THE IMPERIALS wrote exclusive liner-notes for this new release, in which he looks back on his friendship with Elvis and also describes beautifully what made Elvis so special, both as a man and as a performer. As many of you know, Murray worked extensively together with Elvis during his comeback period, and he can be seen in the ‘Elvis: That’s The Way It Is’ film from 1970, and heard on albums like ‘On Stage – February 1970’ and the Grammy Award-winning ‘He Touched Me’ (1972).

Packaged in a beautiful digipack with relevant notes and photos, ‘Sold Out volume 8’ is a true must-have for the serious collector.

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!

Elvis Presley is the King of Rock'n'Roll, the biggest icon in showbusiness, and a great person who lives on forever!
