Elvis: The King Revealed


ISBN: 193329902 + 1933299207ISBN: 193329902 + 1933299207Unter zwei ISBN-Nummern ist dieses 10-CD-Box umfassende Audiobuch zu finden. Einmal ist der Erscheinungstermin im Februar und ein anderes mal ist der 31.05.2006 genannt. Bleibt abzuwarten, welcher Termin stimmt.

Hier die Ankündigung des Verlages:
"'I believe the key to happiness is someone to love, something to do, and something to look forward to.' Elvis Presley From the city where the gods themselves were born, Memphis, came the most noteworthy of them all--loved by millions, who gave generously and possessed an utter devotion to his mother and his music.

This god, hidden yet revealed, rose to become the adorned and unstoppable Elvis, The King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Those who knew him before he grew into his kingship would have called him shy. But once the spotlight shone on this high school outcast, there emerged a voice that brought the world from its slumber and set its heart beating to the tempo of Rock 'n' Roll. Listen to Dixie Locke Emmons, Elvis' high school sweetheart, as she shares some of the memorable details of Elvis' life before the days of his stardom. Dick Clark, Kenny Rogers, The Doors' Ray Manzarek, and of course, Elvis' drummer D.J. Fontana speak of his television years, of his "morally indecent" gyrations, and his raw, rock sound.

According to lifelong friends Joe Esposito and Charlie Hodge, The Righteous Brothers' Bill Medley, Glen Campbell, and others, it was Girls, Cadillacs, and Graceland that fed the King. But, it was gospel music, trips around the world as a member of the United States Army, his marriage to the beautiful Priscilla Beaulieu, and his return to Las Vegas that molded him into the god he had become."

When The Beatles Met Elvis


ISBN 1401602401ISBN 1401602401Dieses 3 CD´s umfassende, von Chris Hutchins geschriebenen und vorgelesene Audio-Buch erscheint am 26.09.2005.

Und der Verlag kündigt dies wie folgt an:
"No one laughed more loudly than the King himself when the Beatles' manager, Brian Epstein, boasted 'My boys are going to be bigger than Elvis Presley'. It was the early sixties, and Presley, a living legend, appeared unassailable. Yet, in 1964, John, Paul, George and Ringo suddenly topped the American charts - and Beatlemania rolled the King in the greatest rock coup of all time.

Chris Hutchins, then a music journalist in his early twenties,was at the eye of the hurricane as the Beatles swept all before them. No other writer grew as close to the Fab Four from Liverpool as they conquered the world.

As America turned on to the Beatles in a big way during their 1965 tour, Chris Hutchins used his extensive network of connections to mastermind the greatest rock summit meeting ever: a one-and-only rendezvous between the King and the pretenders who were seizing his throne.

With co-author Peter Thompson, Hutchins draws on his own exclusive sources and unpublished personal archives, as well as FBI files and explosive dossiers from the District Attorney's investigators in Memphis, to probe into the greatest rock story never told - one in which the lives of Elvis Presley and the Beatles became dramatically entwined. They reveal the passions and the powerplay, the corruption and the conspiracies, the vendettas and the vanity behind pop-culture's greatest phenomena.

No book has ever penetrated so deeply into the secret worlds of Elvis and the Beatles. This is the graphic, firsthand account of the ambition, lust and greed that drove the most gilded icons in pop history to the very peak of the mountain. And of the dark and dangerous forces that destroyed them.
