One more thing if you were not around in that time period you could never understand what was happening it would be like trying explain what one dollar could buy, remember going out on saturday and pulling up to a gas pump telling the guy fill er up or 2.00 which ever comes first.

Pat Boone did covers of songs that were done by black artists that could not get airplay in that time period, such as fats, Little richard the eldorados and others. He had a great voice but need his own songs and his own style. the media wanted a Good guy so he was oicked to rival Elvis, college boy married no sideburns clean cut elvis being the James dean, Marlon brando type no need to explain. America was trying to continue on with music from the 40's to the early 50's however it failed and Rock and Roll was here to stay.

I can't see the point in this release. In the UK, Pat Boone was an almost total nonentity! NO comparison can be made between the 2. How about a DVD about the comparison between Elvis and Donny Osmond / Led Zeppelin / The Carpenters / Tommy Steele etc, etc, etc

Pat Boone was and still is a nice guy , but, he was more a pop singer than a rock 'n roller. IMO he was never a rival of Elvis . In fact, I found him to be embarrasing trying to sing songs like "Tutti Frutti".

Yes this is very true, Pat boone was the "Good Guy" and Elvis was the "Bad Guy" the media played it up real well at the time however in this case the "Bad Guy" became the good guy and won it all. As much as none of his fans wanted him drafted in 1958 it proved to be the best move that could have ever been made against someone will. What ever the government was thinking we will never know. But his return in 1960 and the music the he created during that time period was 2nd to none. The only bad thing was some of those really bad movies. that came after 65

The only true rival Elvis had was The Beatles no one else not even Jerry Lee Lewis!
