Incredibly bad taste. That sums up what I saw at Graceland, the home of Elvis in Memphis. That goes for the items in the home, the design and decoration, as well as the tourist facilities. But my god, what a performer. His musical legacy has been under-appreciated probably because we're put off by the fanatical fans -- and his gaudy costumes. Listening to the music and watching early performances (the 1968 tv special was probably his best) leaves no doubt however that he ws truly one of the greatest.

I took these pictures with my iPhone.
