Stand By Me

Set for release in Germany on November 24, 2006 is a new 2DVD set entitled "Stand By Me". It is a 3 hour documentary on Elvis' love for gospel. Synopsis (in German): "Wer die leidenschaftliche Musik von Elvis Presley vollständig begreifen möchte, kommt nicht umhin, sich mit seinen musikalischen Wurzeln zu befassen. Schon lange vor seinem Aufstieg zum King of Rock ‘n’ Roll war Elvis ein großer Verehrer schwarzer Gospel-Musik. Obwohl sie eine zentrale Rolle in der Ausprägung seiner Spiritualität, seines künstlerischen Ausdrucks und der Entwicklung seiner Karriere spielte, wurde diese Leidenschaft noch nie genauer beleuchtet als in „Stand By Me“. Auf zwei DVDs zeigt „Stand By Me“ neben bisher unveröffentlichtem Material mehr als dreißig Stunden Gospelaufnahmen sowie legendäre Auftritte des Kings wie „Where Could I Go“, „Bosom of Abraham“, „In The Ghetto“ und viele mehr. Diese 3-stündige Kollektion, mit persönlichen Schilderungen von Zeitzeugen, schildert das Leben der Legende hinter den Kulissen. „Stand By Me“ dokumentiert, welch großen Einfluss die beiden herausragenden Gospel-Bands „The Statesmen“ und „The Blackwood Brothers“ auf Elvis hatten und erzählt von der über dreißig Jahre währenden Freundschaft zwischen Elvis und der Gospel-Legende J. D. Sumner. Die Kontroverse um die „Peace In The Valley“-Interpretation in der Ed Sullivan Show wird durch „Stand By Me“ eindrucksvoll nachvollziehbar, ebenso wie die überraschende Hintergrundgeschichte zur Aufnahme von „How Great Thou Art“. Erleben Sie selbst, welchen tiefen Eindruck die Gospel-Musik bei Elvis hinterließ – und Sie werden ihn von da an in einem neuen Licht sehen!"

I copied & pasted it, went on the Babelfish translation online site, translated it into English
& here's the results:

"who would like to understand the passionate music of Elvis Presley completely, does not come not to be concerned with its musical roots. Already for a long time before its ascent to the King OF skirt ` n ' roll was Elvis a large Verehrer of black Gospel music. Although it played a central role in the development of its Spiritualitaet, its artistic expression and the development of its career, this passion was not ever lit up more exactly than in "conditions By ME". To two DVDs "conditions By ME" show than thirty hours of Gospelaufnahmen as well as legendary appearances of the Kings beside unpublished material more like "Where Could I Go", "Bosom OF Abraham", "in The Ghetto" and many more. This 3-stuendige collection, with personal descriptions of time witnesses, describes the life of the legend behind the window blinds. "conditions By ME" documented, what large influence the two outstanding Gospel volume "The Statesmen" and "The Blackwood Brothers" on Elvis had and told by over thirty years the lasting friendship between Elvis and the Gospel legend J. D Sumner. The controversy about the "Peace in The Valley" interpretation in OD Sullivan show becomes through "conditions By ME" impressively comprehensibly, just as surprising background history for the admission of "How Great Thou kind". Experience, the Gospel music left which deep impression with Elvis - and you will see it from then on in a new light!"

Elvis fans are an international bunch so why should'nt other languages be used occassionally? I have no problem with German being used on the site evry once in a while. As egards the DVD it does indeed sound very similar to He Touched Me. Probably not for me.

The synopsis sounds good and I like the cover art of the DVD. But we already have the great 2-DVD-set "He Touched Me" and this one is around the same length (180 min.). I don't know, but the description sounds a bit like "He Touched Me"... We'll see.

This is not fantastic but I just copied and pasted the German text into an online translation site and hey presto!
