Elvis on Tour

Elvis on Tour

Elvis on Tour is a 1972 musical documentary. It has songs performed by Elvis Presley from his 1972 tour. Many of his songs from the 50s to the 70s are here. The band sounds great and Elvis has a lot of energy in his performances. Also shown is rehearsals, Elvis backstage before concerts, Elvis on the road, scenes from his movies, and some interviews with his fans. This is a must own for all Elvis Presley fans. I also like The Essential Presley album.

Herb Alpert - Rise


This 1979 album by Herb Alpert is my favorite. It has the popular jazz-funk song "Rise". Other songs here are "1980", "Rotation", "Behind the Rain", "Aranjuez (Mon Amour)", "Love Is", "Angelina", and "Street Life". The 2007 edition also has "Rotation" (Alternate Version) and "Aranjuez (Mon Amour)" 2007 Dance Mix.
