Cover Art Free Parker DVD

April 16, 2009 | Video

There will always be pro and contra arguments when discussing the Colonel, but the content of this DVD may teach us something new.

Loanne Parker talks in detail about the 'Dutch days' of Tom Parker, and that alone is unique.

This DVD is a free bonus for ElvisMatters Members and can be picked up at the Expo "100 year Parker, 1.000 times ELVIS" in Breda (June 26/27/28).

The content:

Engelina (Lien) van Kuijk: Sister of the Colonel. This interview is the only one taped on film, and was recorded in December 1996 at her house in Breda. Lien passed away a few months later, in April 1997.

Ad van Kuijk Jr.: nephew of the Colonel. He was the one who managed to contact his cousin, after his father had seen a picture of his "lost brother" in a Dutch magazine. Recorded at his house in January 2009.

The very last footage of the Colonel, recorded in Juni 1993 in the Las Vegas Hilton hotel. These are the only images, or film if you want, of the Colonel doing what he loved most: gambling.

Loanne Miller Parker, Mrs Colonel: Loanne married the Colonel in 1990 , but they knew one another already in 1969, when she worked as a secretary at the International Hotel in Vegas. This exclusive interview was recorded in Las Vegas, where she still lives, in January 2009.

Eddie Fadal: Friend of Elvis, especially in the 'early days', although they kept in touch until 1977. This was the last interview recorded, back in the Summer of 1993. Eddie Fadal died in April 1994.

Mike McGregor: Mike worked for Elvis when he bought the Circle G Ranch, and moved back to Graceland with him. Recorded in 1993 at the Imperial Palace.

I'd rather spend my time listening to Elvis than watching a DVD on the Old Col. This is a waste of money because if you buy it how many times are you going to watch it.

Free is even too expensive for me.
