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
