Elvis 1960 - Seven Days In March

.

Paul Belard veröffentlicht das 194 Seiten starke und auf 50 Stück limitierte Buch "Elvis 1960 - Seven Days In March".

Ankündigung des Autors:
"March 1960, almost 2 years before, Elvis was drafted. At the peak of his professional career, he faced two uncertain
years.

Would it be over?

Would the fans still be there when he came back?

The doubts were etched on his face, in the days of March 1958. His easy smiles were now forced. They would disappear
for a long while after his beloved mother's untimely death in August 1958.

However, in the days of March 1960, his smiles could not have been more genuine. His army days over amidst a flurry of
press conferences attended by more reporters than would have covered a presidential address. Frank Sinatra, who
came close to calling him a blabbering idiot a few years before ate crow and dug deep in his pockets to have him on the
show. Contracts for several movies were already signed.

A photo record of Elvis' journey through 7 days in March 1960 over more than 190 pages."
