4 Incredible Clues That Could Prove Elvis Is Still Alive
Published on Jul 31, 2018
On August 16th, 1977, The King himself, Elvis Presley, supposedly died due to cardiac arrest. But once more, fans contended that Elvis had really faked his death, and whilst this may initially sound ridiculous, there is hard evidence that could prove the theory’s legitimacy. So, from a secret recording of Elvis in 1981, to the mysterious identity of the man known as Jesse, join us…

I posted the following on my Facebook page on 8-7-2018:
Skutnik Michel has caused my video proving that Pastor Bob Joyce is not Elvis, by means of Pastor Joyce’s Email to me, to be deleted on YouTube. I have sent feedback to YouTube that he has no grounds for his copyright claim. I know it will do no good…but I felt I had to speak up. The Email is my own personal property and Skutnik certainly has no claim to it whatsoever. This was just done for spite because he promotes that Pastor Joyce is Elvis I believe.
Some of you may recall that this video was placed on YouTube originally by another channel owner. I am so sorry that I can no longer recall that person’s name*. I loved this video when it was on there and saved a copy of it. When Skutnik Michel complained about copyright and got the original video shut down, I put it on my own channel. So, now he has pulled the same stunt again against me.
*footnote: My thanks to Serge C. who wrote to tell me that the original owner of this video is “Finder” on YouTube.
Anyway, in view of what has taken place with me on YouTube in recent months, I have chosen to create a whole new page here on my new web site (which is the continuation of my original site) on which I can upload and display my videos myself without any middle entity like YouTube having any say so at all about my videos.
I invite everyone to visit my new page and to view my videos. I am going to be loading some of my videos onto this page as I go along. Can’t do it all at one time.
So far, I have placed three videos on the new page…please take a look and let me know what you think. I have never had this option available to me on my original web site and decided to try it today after this new “strike against my channel” on YouTube showed up.

Hear Elvis, Lisa Marie Presley Duet on Revamped Gospel Song
“Where No One Stands Alone” features on new compilation of Elvis’ gospel songs
Elvis Presley duets with his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, on a newly revamped version of “Where No One Stands Alone,” the title track from the late singer’s upcoming posthumous compilation of gospel songs.
The two singers alternate and harmonize over piano and pedal-steel on the ballad, which, in its original form, appeared on Elvis Presley’s 1967 LP How Great Thou Art. “Once I stood in the night/With my head bowed low/In the darkness as black as could be,” the elder Presley sings. “And my heart felt alone and I cried oh Lord/Don’t hide your face from me.”
RCA/Legacy Recordings, which will release Where No One Stands Alone on Friday, paired the song with a lyric video featuring family photos and in-studio footage of Lisa Marie Presley in the vocal booth. The footage was shot in studios in Nashville, Hollywood and New York, including two sites where Elvis himself had sang.
“It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father,” Lisa Marie Presley wrote in the project’s liner notes. “The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I’m certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way.”
“Recording with all that history, in rooms that Elvis recorded his most memorable tracks, with the singers that backed Elvis in his most powerful performances, and with the raw emotion of his daughter Lisa Marie singing ‘with’ her father in the same room her father sang in a memory that we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and beyond,” Joel Weinshanker, one of the project’s producers, told Rolling Stone in a statement.
The 14-track album also features newly recorded instrumentation and backing vocals from many other Elvis collaborators, including Darlene Love; Dr. Cissy Houston; Terry Blackwood, Armond Morales and Jim Murray (of the Imperials); and Donnie Sumner, Bill Baize, Ed Hill and Larry Strickland (of the Stamps).
“This was his favorite genre — no question about it,” Presley wrote in the liner notes of her father’s taste. “He seemed to be at his most passionate, and at peace while singing gospel. He would truly come alive — whether he was singing just for himself and me at home, or on stage in front of thousands of fans.”

The great comeback: Extended version of the 1968 TV special that saved Elvis Presley’s career will air in cinemas nationwide to mark the 41st anniversary of his death
- This Thursday will mark 41 years since the death of Elvis Presley
- Extended version of a 1968 TV special will air in cinemas nationwide on the night
- NBC film, made by Steve Binder, credited with reviving star’s flagging career
- Steve had been reluctant to work with Elvis and film was almost never made
- Elvis said to have regarded it as one of the best things he’d ever done
- Tickets for screenings on 16th August are available from fathomrocks.com
Fifty years ago, not many TV directors would have turned down the opportunity to make a show starring Elvis Presley.
But that was what Steve Binder was planning to do – before a wiser friend persuaded him to change his mind.
It was a re-think that was to lead to one of the greatest comebacks in showbusiness history – an extended 90 minute version of which will be shown on Thursday, the 41st anniversary of the singer’s death, in 250 cinemas around the country.
It was however, a close-run thing. ‘I wasn’t an Elvis fan,’ Binder told me this week. ‘I was involved with the Beach Boys and Laura Nyro [the American singer songwriter] at the time, and had filmed the Rolling Stones.
I knew that Elvis was from Tupelo, Mississippi, which is pretty well the centre of the Bible Belt, and I thought, wrongly, he might be some kind of racist or redneck.’
NBC offered Steve Binder the role of producing a Christmas special starring Elvis Presley (pictured) in 1968. An extended version of the special airs in cinemas nationwide on Thursday, 16th August in memory of the 41st anniversary of the singer’s death
Elvis’s (pictured) career had been suffering at the time he was offered to star in the TV special as he struggled to chart in the Top Ten and many of his films were received badly
That suspicion in itself would have been good enough reason to reject the offer, but there was more.
At the time, Elvis’s career was plummeting towards irrelevancy. Why would an ambitious young director want to become involved with a singer who might soon be a has-been?
Since leaving the US Army in 1960, Elvis had starred in over two dozen Hollywood films, almost every one worse than the one before.
And without a Top Ten hit in the US since 1966, by the late Sixties the movie studio doors had begun closing on him.
Seeing his cash cow no longer wanted in movieland, Elvis’s manager, the phoney ‘Colonel’, Tom Parker, turned to television, the medium that, in 1956, had made the singer a star overnight.
His plan was for a one-hour Christmas special of yuletide songs. That was the show that Steve Binder was offered by the NBC network – and something that he absolutely did not want to do.
He’d been approached, he remembers, because he’d just made a hit show starring Petula Clark.
Harry Belafonte had been a guest star, and, while the two had been singing, Belafonte had touched Pet Clark’s forearm.
Touching each other is something singers tend to do when they sing as duos, but not on primetime US TV in 1968 when one is a black man and the other a white woman.
There was a huge media reaction. A line had been crossed in mainstream TV entertainment, and it had been Steve Binder, the man behind the cameras, who had dared to take the risk.
He, it was decided, was the right kind of brave, modern thinking, inventive director to take on Elvis.
But only when Binder’s musical director, Bones Howe, who had been a technician on several early Elvis hits, told him how good Elvis could be when he had the right people around him, did he agree to meet the singer.
A few days later, Elvis turned up at Binder’s office and the two of them sat down and talked.
Steve claims Elvis (pictured) was open and friendly. He revealed to Steve that he was unsure about television as he was unhappy with some appearances from earlier in his career
‘He was so open and friendly,’ Binder says, ‘I quickly realised he was the complete opposite of what I thought he was.
‘He asked me what stage I thought his career was at. So, I told him that I thought it was in the toilet.
‘He just stared at me for a minute. Then he laughed out loud and said: “At last someone is telling me the truth.”
‘He was unsure about television having been unhappy with some appearances early in his career, when he thought some of the producers had been laughing at him.
‘On one, they’d dressed him up in a white tie and tails, and he’d had to sing Hound Dog to a basset hound.’
Elvis hadn’t thought it was funny. ‘TV isn’t my turf,’ he told Binder.
‘So, what is your turf?’ Binder asked.
‘Making records,’ had come the reply.
‘So, you make an album, and I’ll provide the images,’ Binder had told him.
Elvis (pictured) had no say in the scripts for films he starred in and was contracted to star in three films a year
The conversation moved on to music. Was he open to new styles of songs, Elvis was asked. For instance, would he have sung MacArthur Park, that, at the time, was a very big hit for actor Richard Harris?
‘In a heartbeat,’ Elvis had replied.
The question of Christmas songs wasn’t even discussed. According to Priscilla Presley, who, along with Binder, introduces the cinema version of the show, and who, as the keeper of the flame, is involved in all the Elvis reissues, when the singer got home that night he said to her: ‘I don’t give a goddamn what the Colonel says, I’m going with this guy.’ It was a rare act of defiance against Parker.
After a promising start in the late Fifties with Loving You, Jailhouse Rock and King Creole, movies had become a train to career suicide for Elvis since he’d left the US Army in 1960.
Contracted to make three films a year, he had ‘no say-so in the scripts,’ he would later admit, and had become deeply unhappy. He was, he would admit to friends, ‘a joke’ in Hollywood.
It’s impossible to imagine that Paul Newman and Steve McQueen, other stars of the time, would ever have had no say in what films they appeared in.
Steve took risks for his Elvis special showing the vocalist sing in brothels and partnering with a black trio singing gospel songs
But they were part of the Hollywood establishment.
Neither Elvis nor Colonel Parker moved socially in movie circles. They didn’t know the top new Hollywood directors, screenwriters or producers. And few of the journeymen directors who had made Elvis’s films, had been in the first flush of youth. Norman Taurog, who directed nine of them, had been born in 1899.
Steve Binder was 35, just a couple of years older than Elvis. The two were a good fit, and with agreement reached, the director sent a couple of writers off to raid the record shops, find Elvis recordings they liked, and then come up with a storyline.
They chose 1967’s Guitar Man, and built around it a narrative of Elvis going through the music that had shaped him.
Once again Binder planned to take risks, showing Elvis singing rhythm and blues in a brothel in one scene (largely cut from the original TV show as being too risqué, but included in the extended cinema version), and then partnered by the black singing trio, The Blossoms, when he sang a medley of the gospel songs with which he’d grown up.
Elvis (pictured) who sang for the first time with an orchestra for the Christmas special was nervous according to Steve Binder
‘Elvis liked everything we offered him,’ Binder remembers of the singer’s reaction when he was shown the script.
‘The only time I saw him upset about anything, was when a senior producer told him his dyed hair was too black!’
There had been recent problems with his weight and prescription drugs, but, says Binder, ‘he was as clean as a whistle’ for his show. ‘He’d just come back from a holiday in Hawaii and was tanned and looking like a Greek god.’
He was, however, nervous. ‘He’d never sung with an orchestra before and made me promise that if he didn’t like it, I would send the musicians home and just keep the rhythm section.
‘But he loved the sound of the orchestra when he heard it.’
While rehearsals were taking place Binder had the brainwave that would make the show a classic.
Noticing how Elvis would rewind after work by playing and singing with some of his guys in his dressing room, he decided, to make it an improvisational feature of the show.
Elvis (pictured) was weary about singing in front of an audience at the time he filmed the Christmas special as it had been eight years since he last did it
Whereupon Elvis suggested they send for his original musicians, Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana.
It was, Binder realised, the best way to get the ‘raw’ Elvis, filming him, cinema verité style, with a hand-held camera borrowed from the NBC sports department.
The Colonel wouldn’t allow them to shoot in the dressing room, but finally agreed to a little stage shaped like a boxing ring without the ropes, that was surrounded by fans.
‘It was fly-on-the wall stuff,’ says Priscilla. ‘That was how Elvis was all the time at home, when the boys would come around and start playing and singing together.’
Even so, before he did it for the cameras, Elvis got very nervous. ‘I haven’t been in front of an audience in eight years,’ he told Binder.
‘What am I going to do if they don’t like me? What if they laugh at me?’
As it happened, the exact reverse happened. The jamming session, with Elvis roaming through over a dozen of his favourite old songs, from Lawdy Miss Clawdy and Trying To Get To You to Love and One Night, became the most memorable part of the show.
Elvis (pictured) began listening to Steve Binder more than his manager ‘Colonel’, Tom Parker during production for his Christmas special
Elvis’s manager Parker, demanded that a Christmas song be included in the special rather than just original songs by the singer
Not surprisingly, as shooting progressed and Elvis listened more to Binder than to his manager, Parker became increasingly irate that he was being side-tracked.
Calling Binder and Elvis to his office he demanded that at least one Christmas song be included. ‘That’s what you want, isn’t it Elvis?’ he said.
Elvis mumbled an embarrassed assent, only to tell Binder once they were alone together. ‘F*** him. We’ll do what we want.’
‘Elvis would never put the Colonel down in front of anyone,’ says Priscilla. ‘That was his way of appeasing him.’
In the end a verse or two of Blue Christmas was added to the improvised medley, but the assassination of Robert Kennedy at the time they were rehearsing ensured that it wouldn’t be a Christmas song that ended the show.
It was just two months after the murder of Martin Luther King in Memphis.
Elvis (pictured) insisted against his manager’s views on including the song If I Can Dream in the Christmas special to show his reaction to the killings happening at the time
Elvis had been in despair over that, ashamed that it should have happened in his home town. Now, with the murder of a second Kennedy, he could talk of nothing else.
Seeing his emotions, Binder asked the show’s music arranger, W. Earl Brown, if he could write something that would reflect how Elvis had reacted to the killings.
The result, written over a weekend, was If I Can Dream, a song about peace, hope and brotherhood that was based directly upon King’s ‘I Have A Dream’ speech.
When Brown played and sang his song to Binder and Parker the manager’s response, was predictably dismissive: ‘That ain’t an Elvis kind of song’, he growled, illustrating his unfamiliarity with the gospel roots of his client.
But then Elvis had his say. ‘We’re doing it,’ he insisted.
‘Steve,’ Elvis said to Binder after the recording, ‘I’m never going to sing another song I don’t believe in.
‘And I’m never going to make another picture I don’t believe in.’
Binder cut two versions of the Elvis (pictured) TV show, the one hour version he was commissioned to make and another longer edit which is set to air for his anniversary
As it happened, he did record quite a few more songs that he didn’t much care about, but nowhere nearly as many as he had done in his Hollywood years.
As for the movies, there were only a couple more to go, anyway.
With several hours of material to edit, Binder cut two versions of the show, one was the one hour special he’d been commissioned to make, but there was also another much longer edit which he hoped NBC would put out instead.
They chose not to. That is the version that will be shown in the cinemas next week.
Elvis watched the screening of the show on December 3, 1968, sitting in his new Beverly Hills home with Priscilla.
He was very quiet during the transmission, hardly speaking to Priscilla, only for the phones to start ringing and never stop from the moment the end titles appeared. In her opinion it was one of the best things he ever did.
The public liked it, too, with 42 per cent of the American viewing public having watched.
Steve recalls being at war with Elvis’s manager throughout production for the Christmas special and being unable to continue working together after its completion
The single, If I Can Dream, had been issued a month earlier to lukewarm reaction, but now it raced up the charts, as did the album of the show.
One hour on television had turned Elvis’s life and career around.
More big hits, such as In The Ghetto and Suspicious Minds, soon followed, before the next summer Elvis began doing live shows again, starting in Las Vegas.
Steve Binder was there to see his first night back on stage, but there was never any chance of his working relationship with Elvis continuing.
During the entire production of the TV special he and Colonel Parker had been ‘in a state of war. He wouldn’t let me within a mile of Elvis after that,’ he now laughs.
For him, the strength of the show was in ‘seeing Elvis rediscover himself’. But Elvis didn’t do it alone. As Priscilla would tell Binder. ‘You brought him out of the darkness.’

My Facebook post for today…
41 Years Ago: Elvis Presley Dies At 42, And Rock And Roll Loses More Than Just Its King
Before Everything And After, There Was Elvis.
Only heaven could have known that the shy boy born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a Tupelo, Mississippi shotgun house would grow up to be royalty, his reign as the the king of all things rock and roll changing not just the world he was born into but the world that would remain long after he took his final bow.
Elvis Presley’s August 16, 1977 death at the age of 42 brought with it a special form of grief we’d only experienced one time before, with the plane crash that claimed the lives of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper; where their deaths represented the end of our collective innocence and helped usher in an era devoid of rose colored glasses, Elvis’ death represented the end of all that we’d ever known – our link to rock and roll’s roots, its past and present and everything thereafter, was gone like a thief in the night.
41 years on, it’s impossible to imagine rock music’s evolution without Elvis’ influence and frankly, we don’t really want to try. There isn’t a rock figure alive who has captivated the world on the level that he did during the course of a 23 year career that spawned over 600 million records sold, countless records smashed, and generations of rock fans and musicians. A heady brew of rock, country, and a whole lot of soul, Elvis set the bar impossibly high for singers to follow and while many have tried to meet or exceed that bar, all have paled in comparison.
This is a very good interview with Lisa Marie…

The below article and video will be very informative to people who have not been involved in the long history of the “ELVIS IS ALIVE” adventure. This is a flash from the past for those of us who have been there since day one – August 16, 1977.
The woman in this video is Gail Brewer-Giorgio in a current interview. The man being interviewed is Mike Joseph who is the man who took the famous pool house door photo of Elvis on New Years Day, 1978.
Mike Joseph spoke on a Larry King TV show on which Gail appeared. Mr. Joseph changed his story completely on that show and lied about everything including the fact that he did make a taped recording in which he explained about it being Elvis in that photo in great detail. Now, he is currently back to telling the truth that he believes Elvis did not die. Evidently pressure was put upon Mr. Joseph to lie on the Larry King show in an attempt to discredit Gail. I have my own video of the Larry King show and will insert my video below this article.
I do want to emphasize one thing here before one watches this video: Jesse told me firmly and in no uncertain terms regarding Gail Brewer-Giorgio: “I don’t want that woman to make any more money off of me.” So, I am NOT sharing all of this to support her in any further work she does to expose Elvis.”

Below is my own video of the Larry King show on which Mike Joseph lied.
ELVIS IS ALIVE. 1978 POOL HOUSE DOOR PHOTO. ELVIS POOL HOUSE DOOR PHOTO. ON LARRY KING SHOW, PHOTOGRAPHER LIES ABOUT HIS EARLIER STATEMENTS ON TAPE.
In this excerpt of Gail Brewer-Giorgio’s 2nd appearance on the Larry King Show…this one after her book had become a New York Times bestseller. Joe Esposito appears & declares that the person in the pool house door photo is Al Strada…you will see Joe’s explanation become questionable. Then Mike Joseph is interviewed via phone and attempts to retract his earlier statements. If you listen carefully, you will see that Mike’s statements are all over the place: says he never made a tape in which he said it was Elvis in the photo; says he changed his mind when he met with George Klein and Joe Esposito; says he told Gail in Feb. 1988 that it was NOT Elvis in the photo; says that George Klein told him that it was Elvis’ cousin Jimmy who was never liked by Elvis and who began hanging around after Elvis was gone. Joe then loses some of his confidence and, when asked, after the story about Jimmy, says in a weak little voice “Yes, I do.” after Larry asked him if he says it is Al Strada. Mike Joseph said that he made the interview tape about his taking of the photo AFTER he told Gail that IT WAS NOT Elvis in the photo!?! What is that supposed to mean? He says there is no tape of him saying that he said it was Elvis and then turns around and speaks about doing the interview tape.
So, what it boils down to is that Joe says it is Al Strada but did not come prepared to show an actual photo of Al Strada. Then Mike Joseph says that he believed it was Elvis Presley up until the last year and that he changed his mind based on what George Klein said about the cousin, Jimmy, and what Joe said. Extremely flimsy explanations by both Joe and Mike Joseph AND CONTRADICTORY TO BOOT.
This show was done in a very disrespectful and aggressive manner toward Gail. Larry King denied that he had the tape of Mike Joseph saying it was Elvis in the photo….even though Gail had sent a copy of the tape to Larry before the show. Also, Mike Joseph says he would like for her to play that tape…as if to say it does not exist.

I love the quote of Elvis in this article about his last concert in Memphis on July 5th, 1976.
Elvis Presley in Memphis
TUESDAY, AUGUST 21, 2018
I am so happy to share that Jesse called tonight and we had a wonderful visit. He is well and sounded so good. He just needed lots of quiet time to himself last week and apologized for not getting a call made to me. He took the week to just rest alone while listening to music, watching movies and lots of reading. He did not go to Memphis last week; so if you see any photos of men in Memphis being passed around as being of him, they are mistaken identity as has been in the past.
Jesse says that he knows that most people still think of Gospel music when they think of him but he likes all kinds of music now and not so much the gospel. He said that he does sit at the piano and plays a gospel song every night before he goes to bed though. He stays abreast of all the news coming out in magazines about the current music and likes to listen to all kinds of music. Two of his favorite magazines with current entertainment news in them is UNCUT and MOJO; they have up-to-date news about new DVD, movies and CD releases. Also, they each send a CD enclosed with every monthly issue. I do subscribe to those for him and send him each of the editions when they come out.
I told him all about Tom and me going to the theater last night to see the Elvis ’68 Comeback Special. We both enjoyed it so very much. I told Jesse that Steve Binder seems like a nice man and Jesse said that he was. Jesse said “Is he still around? He must be about my age now.” He said that Steve gave him some good ideas about some things in that show and that he liked him. Jesse said that he would like to see that show on the big screen himself.

New Elvis album also enters No. 1 on Billboard physical albums chart & Billboard vinyl albums chart
Elvis Presley has entered the Billboard top Christian album chart at No. 1 – a first for the legendary artist – with “Where No One Stands Alone,” a groundbreaking new album on RCA/Legacy celebrating the singer’s everlasting love of gospel music. The new collection is also No. 1 on the Billboard physical albums chart and the Billboard vinyl albums chart. The album debuted in the Top 10 in the U.K., marking his 53rd U.K. Top 10 album.
While three contemporary gospel albums recorded by Elvis – “His Hand In Mine” (1960, RIAA Platinum), “How Great Thou Art” (1967, three-times-Platinum) and “He Touched Me” (1972, Platinum) – were released during the artist’s lifetime, “Where No One Stands Alone” is the first Elvis album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Christian album chart. His religious recordings – singles, EPs, albums, compilations – have sold approximately 300 million copies in the U.S. alone, with “(There’ll Be) Peace In The Valley (For Me)” and “Crying In The Chapel” each selling more than 20 million copies. Ten Elvis albums have hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 while seven Elvis album titles have reached No. 1 on the Billboard country chart.
Produced by Joel Weinshanker, Lisa Marie Presley and Andy Childs, “Elvis Presley – Where No One Stands Alone” introduces newly recorded instrumentation and backing vocal contributions from music legends who’d performed on-stage and/or in-the-studio with Elvis. It also includes a reimagined duet with Elvis and his daughter, Lisa Marie, on the album’s title track and spiritual touchstone.
Background vocalists on the album include: Darlene Love (who first sang with Elvis on his 1968 NBC television special); Dr. Cissy Houston (who, with The Sweet Inspirations, sang with Elvis on-stage beginning in 1969); Terry Blackwood, Armond Morales and Jim Murray (members of The Imperials, who sang on Elvis’ “How Great Thou Art” – with the title song winning the 1967 Grammy for Best Sacred Performance); and Donnie Sumner, Bill Baize, Ed Hill and Larry Strickland (members of Presley’s longtime backup group, The Stamps).
“Elvis Presley – Where No One Stands Alone” provides new musical perspectives on 14 of the singer’s favorite pieces of gospel music, from the reverential to the celebratory, with song selections including Presley’s beloved enduring gospel classics (the 1965 Top 5 smash “Crying In The Chapel,” “How Great Thou Art,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone”), praise-filled gospel-rockers (Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller’s “Saved”) and traditional hymns and spirituals (“So High,” “Stand By Me,” “In The Garden,” “Amazing Grace”).

The third and final new title in the top 10 this frame comes from one of the greatest artists of all time: Elvis. Yes, Elvis Presley has scored a new hit album in 2018, showing once again that the British people simply cannot get enough of him, even decades after his passing. Where No One Stands Alone, which kicks off at No. 9, features primarily gospel vocal recordings from The King, but this time around, they’ve been backed by new instrumentation. Where No One Stands Alone is, incredibly, Presley’s fifty-third top 10-charter on the U.K. albums ranking.

I have subscribed to this YouTube channel for quite a while and enjoy their recap of the Elvis news each month:
For anyone who has enjoyed my videos regarding the THE KILLER, THE KING album and wished to purchase a copy, there is now one on Ebay for a very fair price. These normally go for the $50.00 to $75.00 or higher price range. This seller obviously does not know about the Elvis connection to this album and is showing it only as “Jimmy ORION Ellis“. I own two copies of this wonderful album. I bought my first one in the late 1980’s in a record shop dealing in rare records. I bought my second copy which is like new and still sealed in the original plastic shrink wrap. I do recommend this album so very highly.

I have created a new video which is devoted to a topic which is very important to me. I have uploaded this video to my Facebook page and to my YouTube channel. I hope that those who view this and recognize the truth in it, will please share it with others. The truth is hard to get spread around while lies fly on the wind.
Below is my YouTube channel video and I will also be uploading my own video onto my web site here on the MY OWN VIDEOS page. YouTube may delete my video from my channel as they have done this before due to a fraudulent copyright claim by Skutnik Michel. I hope that YouTube will take the time to watch this new and much more complete version in which there can be NO legitimate claim filed. There was NO legitimate claim against the first video…but YouTube did not bother to look into the first claim nor the video before issuing a strike against my YouTube channel.
Please DO share this video with others.
This video is now uploaded to the MY OWN VIDEOS page of this web site.
The below video replaces my earlier sharing of my YouTube channel video regarding the fact that Pastor Bob Joyce is NOT Elvis. I apologize for this inconvenience caused by my YouTube video being deleted by YouTube due to a false copyright claim by Skutnik Michel (AGAIN!)😡

Below is an announcement which I just posted on my Facebook page. It also applies to those who visit my web site.
It has just come to my attention by way of a friend request from a man who is on Facebook under the name of Aron Levis (which of course is a rearranging of the letters in the word “Elvis”) that there are 249 mutual friends of this impostor and my own Facebook page.
I WANT TO MAKE ONE THING CRYSTAL CLEAR TO ONE AND ALL.
ANYONE WHO HAS SENT ME A FRIENDS REQUEST WHO IS ALSO “FRIENDS” WITH ANY OF THE FAKE, FRAUDULENT AND IMPOSTOR PAGES ON FACEBOOK, YOU ARE REQUESTED TO REMOVE YOURSELVES FROM MY FRIENDS LIST.
Jesse who IS Elvis is the only real Elvis Presley who is represented anywhere on Facebook, YouTube, etc. If you are still searching for the real Elvis anywhere on the Internet, then that is a slap in Jesse’s face and my face.
Elvis has honored me by asking me to be his “voice” many years ago and I represent him and ONLY him on my web sites and on my Facebook pages. He has told me that I have more (meaning proof) than anyone. He has allowed me to display more about him after 1977 than any other person in any media form.
I thank everyone for understanding. There are no hard feelings and I have weeded out my friends and contacts lists a number of times in the past based on this same behavior. I have removed and even blocked some long time friends because of this same betrayal.
A good friend, Jeannette H., sent me the below photo of Elvis from his Army days as a comparison to the photo of Jesse. I thank her so much for sharing this and she is right in that it is a very good match.

I have just completed another new video of some more proof which I have been trying to get across to people for years. Though, I have everything contained in this video posted on my original web site, it does not seem to have gotten through to a lot of people.
I have therefore chosen to put all of the images and my lengthy details of the history onto this video. One picture is worth a thousand words…so this video compiled of many photos should speak volumes of truth to counteract the lies which have been told about me, about the photo of Jesse, and about Jesse himself.
PLEASE DO WATCH THIS VIDEO IN FULL SCREEN AND PAUSE EACH IMAGE TO READ AND FULLY DIGEST WHAT YOU ARE SEEING.
I do hope this will put to rest one more of the lies which have been spread about me and Jesse’s truth.
Because I realize that the type on the final frame of the video is difficult to read, I will add that typed page below so you may see it clearly.
I WOULD LIKE TO OFFER A WORD OF EXPLANATION AS TO HOW THIS WHOLE FALSE RUMOR ABOUT THE MAN IN JESSE’S PHOTO BEING REV. DALE PRESLEY FROM HIS 1950 PHOTO WITH HIS TWIN BABIES BEGAN.
THIS ALL STARTED BACK AFTER HINTON PUBLISHED JESSE’S BOOK IN 2001. HINTON AND HIS SIDEKICK, LINDA FELIX-JOHNSON, BROUGHT JERRY PRESLEY ON BOARD AFTER I WAS COMPLETELY OUT OF THE PICTURE WITH HINTON. THEN THEY BROUGHT HIM INTO THE INTERVIEWS ON TV REGARDING JESSE. I HAD NEVER HEARD OF JERRY PRESLEY BEFORE. NEITHER HINTON NOR I KNEW JERRY PRESLEY WAY BACK IN 1997 WHEN I INTRODUCED HINTON TO JESSE.
AFTER THE BOOK CAME OUT, THERE WERE A FEW PEOPLE WHO PUT THEIR HEADS TOGETHER AND SOMEONE FOUND THE PHOTO OF JERRY PRESLEY’S FATHER AND SO, IN THEIR LACK OF WISDOM, THEY COLLECTIVELY JUMPED TO THE CONCLUSION THAT, BECAUSE JERRY WAS HOOKED UP WITH HINTON AND FELIX-JOHNSON AFTER THE BOOK CAME OUT, THAT I HAD KNOWN JERRY PRESLEY AND THAT WAS HOW THE PHOTO CAME TO BE IN MY POSSESSION. THEY PUT 2 AND 2 TOGETHER AND GOT 15!
JERRY PRESLEY WAS TOTALLY UNKNOWN TO ME UNTIL WELL AFTER THE BOOK WAS PUBLISHED. JERRY AND I EMAILED AND SPOKE ON THE PHONE FOR A SHORT TIME AROUND 2004. THAT WAS THE VERY FIRST TIME THAT I HAD ANY CONTACT WITH JERRY PRESLEY.
THE INITIALS OF SOME OF THE SLEUTHS WHO CAME UP WITH THE BRILLANT ASSUMPTION THAT THE MAN IN MY JESSE AND BENJAMIN PHOTO IS THE SAME MAN IN THE 1950 PHOTO WERE P. M., B.L.R., A.J.R., M. S. SEVERAL OF WHOM CAME TOGETHER TO TELL LIES ABOUT ME ON THE INTERNET. WHEN I SAW THE 1950 PHOTO POSTED ON A FORUM, I HAD NOT A CLUE WHO THE MAN IN THAT PHOTO WAS.
MICKEY MORAN CAME ALONG MANY YEARS LATER (AFTER I BEGAN MY WEB SITE) AND JUST FELL FOR THE ORIGINAL LIES AND HAS BEEN USING THOSE LIES AGAINST ME EVER SINCE…PLUS ADDING ON NEW LIES OF HIS OWN.

The below video is very special in that it is 8mm footage of Elvis in 1976/1977. I loved seeing this and wanted to share it here.
