If you have ever been to Memphis and Tupelo then this is a DVD that will bring back all the good memories of being there. It is a tour conducted by Mike Freeman (He wrote a few books about Elvis and also lived in one of his former houses.) It visits all of the Elvis sites around Memphis, Tupelo and Nashville. It is interjected with a few interviews with people who knew Elvis. These people have a few stories that they are able to share. I enjoyed the stories and actually enjoyed hearing the true stories to some of the myths that have been retold in other books. Still good though if you keep in mind that it is not a show but rather it is a tour with a tour guide showing you places and people in current time. If you plan a trip to Memphis in the future this is great to ensure that you don't miss visiting these places. If you have never been to Memphis then this is good and accurate to show you what its like. If you have already been to Memphis this is good to remind you just how much fun you had while you were there.

This is a 4 disc guided tour by Mike Freeman to all of the places Elvis was known to frequent. It starts out in Memphis and goes to Tupelo and Nashville. this is probably for Hard core Elvis fans like myself. The pace is very slow and educational. Mike interviews many people who new Elvis as a child to when superstardom was just around the corner. I thought I knew a lot about Elvis but this set really surprised me. I learned a lot more stuff about EP. Mike takes you by car and drives to all of these places, something you could not do on regular tour. If you are a real Elvis fan you should get a kick out of this set. Rock on. Dave Freeman
