Martin Scorsese Presents - The Blues: A Musical Journey 7 DVD Boxset (DVD)€75,00
”WOW MIKÄ LAATIKKO! NÄITÄ VAIN YKSI!! VARASTOLÖYTÖ!!!
Special Features: Contains seven feature-length films: Feel Like Going Home directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Peter Guralnick
The Soul of a Man directed and written by Wim Wenders
The Road to Memphis directed by Richard Pearce and written by Robert Gordon
Warming by the Devil’s Fire directed and written by Charles Burnett Godfathers and Sons directed by Marc Levin Red, White & Blues directed by Mike Figgis Piano Blues directed by Clint Eastwood….. ____Over three hours of special feature material: Live performances not seen in the film Director commentaries On-camera interviews with the directors Director biographies and filmographies Special menu options to scan for all music performances Trailerit may have been underrated when first broadcast on PBS on consecutive nights in the fall of ’03, but executive producer Martin Scorsese’s homage to the blues is a truly significant, if imperfect, achievement. ”Musical journey” is an apt description, as Scorsese and the six other directors responsible for these seven approximately 90-minute films follow the blues–the foundation of jazz, soul, R&B, and rock & roll–from its African roots to its Mississippi Delta origins, up the river to Memphis and Chicago, then to New York, the United Kingdom, and beyond. Some of the films (like Wim Wenders’s The Soul of a Man and Charles Burnett’s Warming by the Devil’s Fire) use extensive fictional film sequences, generally to good effect. There’s also plenty of documentary footage, interviews, and contemporary studio performances recorded especially for these films.The last are among the best aspects of the DVDs, as the bonus material features the set’s only complete tunes. Lou Reed’s ”See That My Grave Is Kept Clean” and the ElektriK Mud Kats’ (with Chuck D. of Public Enemy) hip-hop-cum-traditional updating of Muddy Waters’s ”Mannish Boy” are among the best of them; on the other hand, a rendition of ”Cry Me a River” by Lulu (?!) is a curious choice, even with Jeff Beck on hand. The absence of lengthier vintage clips, meanwhile, is the principal drawback. For that reason alone, Clint Eastwood’s Piano Blues is the best of the lot; a musician himself, Eastwood simply lets the players play, which means we get extensive file footage of the likes of Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, and Nat ”King” Cole, as well as new performances by Ray Charles, Dr. John, and others. Overall, this is a set to savor, a worthwhile investment guaranteed to grow on you over the course of repeated viewings. –Sam GrahamProduct DescriptionThis 7 DVD set features rare archival performance footage of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Eric Clapton and many more. It also features newly filmed performances by contemporary artists singing classic blues songs”
Presley Elvis - SOLD OUT! The Rex Martin 8mm Collection Vol. 14 (2xDVD Set) (DVD)€40,00
With this new ’Sold Out’, we’re going to have fun, because we are going to take you to the Las Vegas of the early 70s: the sights, the sounds… The extensive Elvis decorations at the Hilton… 8mm film from Elvis’ Summer Festival 1973 is pretty rare, but we have managed to obtain good footage and are presenting it here. Dressed in his ‘Snowflake’ jumpsuit, his repertoire includes a ballsy ‘Steamroller Blues’. Also neat to see Emory Gordy on bass subbing for Jerry Scheff. There’s also great concert footage from 1974, and as always his interplay with the fans is a highlight. When a fan says she’s waited 20 years to get a kiss, he says, “Honey, you must have rusty lips by now!”.
We’ve been asked numerous times to tackle the legendary Pittsburgh 1976 New Year’s Eve show. We obtained the films last year, and had a clean transfer done. All shot from the same angle by the same person. Often there’s beauty in respecting the history of things, which is essentially what we’ve done with this footage. So that’s what you’re getting here – Pittsburgh just as it was filmed that special night so many years ago. Elvis was ready for this New Year’s Eve concert, and this concert stands today as one of his finest performances from the final years.
There’s lots more: Abilene ’77 as filmed by Rex Martin (a fantastic transfer!); Tampa & Atlanta ’75 – fun footage with an animated Elvis; the Las Vegas opening show from August 1975 (GREAT show!); Binghamton ’77 and plenty more. There’s so much to enjoy: Elvis having fun with the audience, with the band…. Teasing Kathy Westmoreland with her ‘see-through blouse’, calling J.D. Sumner ‘Hovie Lister’…. Goosebump-inducing moments, like a gorgeous ‘My Boy’, the LAST version of ‘Suspicious Minds’, a SENSATIONAL ‘How Great Thou Art’, a rare-for-1977 ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, Elvis asking for the lights to be turned on and performing ‘Funny How Time Slips Away’ in one of the most unusual arenas that he played in the seventies (you MUST see this!!)…. All classic Elvis, and you’re getting almost three hours of that on this terrific new ‘Sold Out’ release.
Presley Elvis - SOLD OUT! The Rex Martin 8mm Collection Vol. 13 (2xDVD Set) (DVD)€40,00‘SOLD OUT volume 13’ is out and it’s a winner!Over the past year we have released some amazing 8mm footage that has surprised many of you, much of it unknown to most fans. Now get ready for The Best!One of the highlights on this new release is an almost-complete 1974 concert in fantastic quality. And the concert itself is a classic, with Elvis at his finest. Until now, this much sought-after film was sold only amongst high-end collectors for large amounts of money. The Omaha July 1, 1974 footage is a fresh high resolution transfer from the actual 8mm film and it looks absolutely stunning. You can even see the details in his suit. This 48-minute film is a true delight, and one of the best 8mm films in existence. Elvis is in a great mood, he’s joking with bandmembers and the audience, and he’s singing up a storm on songs like “Trying To Get To You” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You”. An absolute must-see!There are 14 different 8mm films on “Sold Out volume 13”, covering the period 1970 – ’76, starting with Mobile ‘70. Plenty of footage from ’71 – ’73 that really makes you feel like you are there. Especially the June ’72 films put you right in the audience… Lights out, sound WAY up and you are THERE! In Chicago, he was clearly mindful of where he was, because he added a lot of blues to his setlist. The ‘Get Back’ medley is cool, with a different guitar-solo by JB. Another cool detail is that several of these films show you the inside of the arenas where Elvis played, with especially the Omni being huge, with 18,000 fans waiting in anticipation for their hero.‘A medley of costumes…’. There’s also fascinating footage from ’75 and ’76, showing Elvis in various unusual outfits, including the two-piece that he favored in April ’75. And from the ill-fated Summer Festival ’75, the one-time-only ‘Penguin suit’. Story has it that Elvis was running a bit late that night, and opted to do his show in his regular street wear. Well, late or not, his performance that night was intimate and fun, and included various concert rarities. Three hours of rare Elvis 8mm concert footage
Presley Elvis - SOLD OUT! The Rex Martin 8mm Collection Vol. 12 (2xDVD Set) (DVD)€40,00
One night in 1977, probably sensing that things were not going well for him, Elvis asked his gospel group J.D. Sumner & The Stamps to join him center stage. Surrounded by his favorite singers, Elvis sang the gospels that he loved the most, including ‘Bosom Of Abraham’ and ‘You Better Run’. He was now finally part of a gospel group, like he’d dreamed of in his teens. It was a stunning moment, and fortunately it was captured on 8mm film. No doubt this the most significant unreleased Elvis footage to emerge in recent years, and we are proud to release it for the first time on ‘Sold Out volume 12’.
There’s more from that final year, including a raunchy ‘One Night’ from May ‘77, a longer-than usual ‘Early Morning Rain’ and a powerful ‘Unchained Melody’ (nearly complete too!), sung for the last time and with great emotion too… A vocal tour-de-force that truly demonstrates Elvis’ greatness as an artist, even in his darkest moments. We’ve included a number of films from the final concerts in Cincinnati and Indianapolis, including semi-professional footage with SENSATIONAL close-ups. It’s very moving to see the Indianapolis footage and realize that these are his final moments on stage. This is historic footage that belongs in every fans’ collection.
There’s also fantastic footage from the great touring years, 1971 and ’72, with Elvis in fantastic form, delighting the crowds with a sincere ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight’, a wild ‘Hound Dog’ with a rockin’ guitar solo, a superb ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ with reprise, and much more. Up-close & clear, this is quality footage that you will revisit time & again.
This is one of our finest releases yet. A lot of restoration work (80+ hours) was done to present these unique 8mm films the best way possible, without compromising the integrity of the original footage. Pyramid prides itself in bringing the fans new and unreleased Elvis material every single time, and we are confident that you will love this release. This is an essential release and a true must for your collection.

Various - Good Rockin` Tonight-The Legacy Of Sun Records (DVD)€20,00
”Sam Phillips’s Sun Records will forever be best known as the label for which Elvis Presley made his timeless first recordings. But Sun earned its legendary status by also recording any number of other blues and rock & roll greats, including Howlin’ Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. This 112-minute, 2001 documentary from PBS’s American Masters series features plenty of reminiscences by Sun old-timers (including the ever-voluble Phillips, who was not, apparently, universally loved by his artists) and some vintage film footage. But the best moments come when more contemporary artists–ranging from Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, and Mark Knopfler to Live, Third Eye Blind, Ben Folds, and even Kid Rock–do their versions of Sun classics like ”Honey Don’t” and ”That’s All Right Mama.” Several of these performances can also be found on the excellent Good Rockin’ Tonight CD; the documentary is good, but if you have to make a choice, go with the CD. -Sam Graham
Historians may never agree about where and when rock ’n’ roll was born, but they do agree that an entrepreneur in the world of music named Sam Phillips began a revolution and spawned a legacy when he created Sun Records. This Memphis-based success story defined some of the most appealing roots of American popular culture with such seminal artists as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many others, all reprised in this two-hour American Masters film with such performers as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and Live, many accompanied by Elvis’ original sidemen, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. Highlights include a moving rendition of ”Lonely Weekends” with Jerry Lee Lewis and Matchbox Twenty, and an emotional reunion of old Mississippi Delta musicians. Songs: That’s All Right (Paul McCartney), Honey Don’t (Ben Folds Five), Rock n’ Roll Ruby (Mark Knopfler), I Walk the Line (Live), My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It (Robert Plant & Jimmy Page), Blue Suede Shoes (Johnny Hallyday), Who Will the Next Fool Be (Zucchero), Cry, Cry, Cry (Third Eye Blind), Drinkin’ Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee (Malcolm Yelvington and Kid Rock), Lonely Weekend (Matchbox Twenty).”
Presley Elvis - Fun In Acapulco (1963) – Rytmiä ja Riemua Acapulcossa (DVD)€20,00
Myös suomi teksitys!
Starring: Elvis Presley, Ursula Andress Director: Richard Thorpe
Encoding: Region 2
Format: Color, Closed-captioned, Widescreen, Dolby
Studio: Paramount Home Video DVD Features: Widescreen anamorphic
In 1963 Elvis could still be energized by the music in his movies, and the production values hadn’t yet descended to budget-crunching level. Thus the breezy pleasure of Fun in Acapulco, which sees the pelvis-swinger coming to life for a rousing Bossa Nova Baby” and a clutch of faux-Mexican tunes. Nice scenery of the fabled resort, but the movie has a strange disconnect (which becomes weirdly fascinating if you keep track of it): Elvis himself is limited to standing and singing in front of rear-projection Mexican vistas, while his hard-working double bicycles down streets, strides across beaches, etc. The newly hot Ursula Andress keeps Elvis and his double company. Elvis’s jobs are among his craziest movie gigs: he begins as a deckhand, is hired as a nightclub entertainer/lifeguard, but is revealed to be a trapeze artist in his former life. By the end, of course, he is also a cliff diver. –Robert Horton”

Presley Elvis - SOLD OUT! The Rex Martin 8mm Collection Vol. 11 (2xDVD Set) (DVD)€40,00
The spring of ’75 was a good period for Elvis. He was performing with renewed energy and vigor, and his joy for performing made these shows very memorable. His voice was strong and robust, the setlists were great, and his interactions with the fans were a delight. He was truly back again, and Sold Out volume 11 takes you back to those dynamite shows. This is some of the most fun & enjoyable 8mm performance footage we have of Elvis on stage in the 70s. Girlfriend Mindi Miller was there with him on that tour, and exclusively for Pyramid, she wrote a detailed account about the day-to-day life on the road with Elvis, with many fresh details.
As always, we’ve also included plenty of unreleased film from other significant tours. There’s the raw sexuality of the November ’71 tour, the professionalism of the spring ’73 tours (lovely close-ups of EP in his Red Flower suit), the power and energy of the June ’74 shows, and at the other end of the spectrum, a man in trouble during the October ’74 tour.
We’ve also included plenty of private footage of Elvis arriving at hotels, venues, etc. What you are getting on this release is the REAL Elvis Presley. Whether it is the rough energy of “I Got A Woman” from the November ’71 tour, or the majesty of “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, with Elvis at the piano in July ’75, singing as if his life depends on it. And there’s plenty of rare moments too, such as him improvising “Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues”. You can see him rocking in his Peacock suit during a sensational “Polk Salad Annie”, and there’s equally spectacular footage of Elvis in his Eagle and Indian Feather suits. And again, there’s plenty of heartwarming and delightful moments, such as Elvis teasing J.D. Sumner during “Why Me Lord”, or the band surprising Elvis with an impromptu “Jingle Bells”.
We all know that 8mm footage is not perfect, but it’s what we have from these shows, and let’s just be grateful that someone had the foresight to film these precious moments. Carefully restored and beautifully presented, “Sold Out volume 11” is a must for the true collector. Don’t miss out on these wonderful Elvis moments – almost three hours of them. Each release is quickly becoming a collectors’ item, with some of them already fetching high prices on E-bay and elsewhere. A copy of volume 5 was recently offered on E-bay for €399. While we don’t condone of such high prices, it once again underlines the collectability of these fantastic releases. Order your copy today from your favorite dealer, and have it in your home before Christmas!
