The French fanclub ‘My Happiness’ released a unique promo CD to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Elvis’ visit to Paris. On the CD, you’ll find a few tracks from Elvis, added with songs from Nancy Holloway and The Golden Gate Quartet. Elvis saw them live during a concert in the ‘Casino De Paris’. After the show, he went backstage and they had a jam session for several hours. It is remarkable to hear the arrangements for ‘Swing Down Sweet Chariot’ and ‘Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho’ that can be heared on this CD are exactly the same as Elvis recorded them later on. The source of his inspiration can be heard on this disc.
The best part of this disc is hidden on de ‘CD Plus’ track’. If you put the disc in our computer (not available on regular DVD players), you can see a short docu about Elvis’ visit to Paris with rare film footage in Black and White and color.
