If you are an Elvis fan, a serious collector or just a friend of mine, I’d like to invite you to a FREE and fun event in the seaside town of Worthing this coming August.

We are putting together a huge sale that will give you the opportunity to grab some serious bargains. Come and enjoy browsing tens of thousands of great Elvis products, many of which will be reduced. We will be offering a vast amount of CDs, DVDs, vinyl, books, posters, magazines, boxsets etc.

For the first time we will have a ‘good as new’ table that will be full of great one-off books.

Take a look at various pre-1977 souvenirs, Vegas and Tahoe memorabilia and even some of Elvis’ personal items. Just about everything imaginable will be on display!!

We simply need to make some room here at the office. We are literally falling over boxes of stock, and we need to think about where we will put all of the great new products due out throughout the rest of this year.

The venue is fantastic with plenty of FREE parking. There’s even a lovely field to sit and enjoy the sunshine (hopefully), so why not bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy some lunch (weather permitting)?

We will be offering complimentary tea and coffee and best of all, this event is FREE of charge. That’s right, there is no cost to enter!!

So, come and meet your friends, have a chat, browse the memorabilia, enjoy some rare Elvis music and soak up the sun and wonderful sea air. I’d love to see all my friends here in Worthing on August 5th.

Perhaps make a day of it (or even a weekend). Worthing is a lovely town with so much to offer – lots of great bars and restaurants. It’s around 80 mins on the train from central London and we have easy public transport to the town.

If I can help with transport information, and even details on accommodation, please send me a private message.

Tearing ‘Em Up! The King In Motion Vol. 3

Sunday, April 15th, 2018


Here is a wonderful package from the guys at Venus. ‘Tearing ‘Em Up’ collectively offers a super 209-page hardback book (with loads of rare and unseen pictures of the complete tour), a stunning DVD and two CDs.

Of paramount interest is the 40-minute DVD containing spectacular footage from Elvis’ November 1971 tour.

The footage is digitally remastered from the original sources and has been professionally synced with the sound from Elvis’ Boston show recorded on November 10th. The soundtrack for the DVD is as follows…

2001 Theme / That’s All Right I Got A Woman – Amen – Proud Mary / You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me / You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling / Polk Salad Annie / Come Home Baby (Instr.) / Love Me Heartbreak Hotel / Blue Suede Shoes / One Night Hound Dog / How Great Thou Art (Part) / Bridge Over Troubled Water / I Can’t Stop Loving You / Suspicious Minds / Come Home Baby (Instr.) / Can’t Help Falling In Love / Closing Vamp

Boston (10th)

Cincinnati (11th)

Houston (12th)

For completeness sake, the Boston show from November 10th is also included on CD in perfect soundboard quality.
